Best place to walk-in with all your heart and soul. 3/5

For getting admission into THAPAR, you have to give JEE MAIN and the seat is allotted as per your rank. Besides, it has some seats reserved for students under sports quota and also for J&K and NE students having separate cut off for students of Punjab state and rest of India. Typical cut off for the civil branch is usually about 70-80.

Thapar is a reputed college, and is renowned for it's placements, as most of the students here get placed ( 95-100% ). The highest package has been of 38 Lacs and the lowest is 3.5 Lacs per annum. Companies like D. E. SHAW usually visits thapar for the recruitment of new talents and brains. There is a special placement cell in the college and the students starts getting internships in the 5th semester only, on the basis of their knowledge in their respective streams. So, overall it's a good college, if judged on the basis of placements.

Best place to walk-in with all your heart and soul. 5/5

The admission at Thapar University is done on the basis of JEE MAIN score. To apply for BTech courses a person must have scored at least 20% in JEE MAIN exam i.e. 72 marks. Some seats are reserved for backward classes and there is a quota for students of Punjab also. For the admission, you need to apply online and there are 4 rounds of online counsellings and after that In-person counseling to fill the vacant seats. I scored 95 in JEE MAIN (2015) and at the time of In-person counseling I was offered a seat in Chemical, Meta Production, Software, Electronics Instrumentation, and Electrical. I took admission in Electrical stream.

There is a project semester in our course scheme at Thapar University. In that semester students are required to spend at least 5 months in the industry. Yes, internship (training) is offered to the students in the campus in that semester and if any student left an impressive mark with his work then he is offered placement package too before the fourth year. Center for Industrial Liasion & Placement (CILP) arranges placements for final year students. According to the data provided more than 170 companies visited in Thapar University in 2015-2016 (till 30-6-2016) and approx 926 students were placed. Maruti, Tata, Synopsys & Black Rock, Amazon, Honda, Sandisk, Crompton, Oracle, Hike Ltd., visit very often.

Overview 5/5

There are many a things Im sure people at Thapar would want to change. The high fees The hostel timings The attendance criteria High number of students per lecture No attendance compensation for extra curricular activities, sometimes not even for official college work. Certain, completely useless subjects (irrelevant is the right word) Punjab state quota A few arrogant faculty 8 am - 5 pm college timings No personal vehicles allowed in campus Except all this its must go...

Well, a lot depends on the branch you are in if you are interested in the core companies visiting the campus. For non-core we have companies like JP Morgan Chase, Deloitte, ZS Consulting, Futures First, Royal Bank of Scotland, HSBC etc to name a few which offer lucrative packages to the students starting from 8lpa going up till 15lpa(there are some others like EXL, mu sigma which offer somewhere around 6–8 lpa and few other which offer again in the range of 8+). Companies having packages above 15lpa are mainly Microsoft, De Shaw, Walmart, Works Experience, Proptiger, Myntra, Hikari Tsushin etc. Well now since you have mentioned that you want the data for all branches, I found something that shall solve this quickly. You can view all the organisations on this link.

Ankit Bhat B.Tech Student

Best University in terms of Education and Facility. 3/5

Admission is done on the basis of 12th board marks and with JEE mains score. Its not like that you have to clear JEEmains to take admission in thapar but you just need to have 20%score in Mains exam.

Placements are good in Thapar and that is why it has maintained its name among the best colleges in Punjab.Average salary is about Rs 6 lakhs. Companies like Texas Instruments, Sandisk and Microsoft visit the campus. About the internships- There are ample of opportunities for Mechanical branch and CS(with good companies like Microsoft and Amazon visiting the campus). Some companies also visit the campus for ECE (and related profiles of EIC and Electrical). But mostly one has to rely on the vacancies (apply online for internships) or rely on his/her contacts.

Kunal Pandey B.Tech Student

Best university in India 5/5

Thapar institute is well established and the campus is equipped with everything that a student may need in his/her daily life. Talking about the classes and labs, they are well built and ventilated. All the labs have the latest equipment.It is collobrate also with Irish university for well future of thapar University students.I take admission here after qualifying in Jee mains exams because in this college seats are limited & finalised by entrance examination.

This university collaborates with Irish university in Dublin so if students thinks for his master career then they can easily apply.The placements are good when compared to colleges like IP, PEC etc. The college is proving to be better than many of the NITs. The average placements are equal to the top placements of many well-known companies like Amazon, Wipro e.t.c.Highest package of this campus is 30 Lacs & minimum package is 5 Lacs per annum.

The procedure for admission in Thapar Institute is very simple. You need to fill the admission form first. You must have made an appearance in JEE Main entrance exam. The cutoff for getting a seat isn't that high or low. At least you must have cleared the entrance exam to be able to be still In the race to get your dream branch

Thapar's Alumni network is quite very strong. There is a student-alumni interaction cell as well.

Reasons why I chose this College. 4/5

No particular entrance exam is there , you just have to score good marks close to the cut off from JEE Mains to get into Electrical or civil or chemical engineering, but for computer science, electronics , mechanical you need to score a little bit higher and also you must have a minimum of 60% aggregate in PCM in your respective board examination.

The placements have been good so far. Last year it was around 89% with the highest package being 40LPA. Companies like MICROSOFT, HSBC, JPMC, Delloite, Schneider, HAVELLS, etc. visited the campus to boost up the placements. The placement at any college depends on how much deserving you are.
