Class of 2021

As it was the state university and I knew about this university very well that’s the reason I was willing to take admission here for the B.tech course soon after I finished my higher senior secondary exams. There are two ways to get through the admission process of this college one is through the university level entrance test and counselling or else through the JEE Main which is the all India examination. I took through the university based test and I appeared for the counselling held at our university. This university is well known for the achievements in academics and educational fields so I took Himachal Pradesh University admission.
