Recently I have completed B.Tech in civil engineering from this college. As per my experience fees structure for courses is feasible, I completed my graduation with the total expenditure of approximately 5.6 Lakhs. College also offers scholarship on the basis of merit. Admissions into various courses are on the basis of score in entrance examinations. For B.Tech I appeared for JEE Mains entrance exam. Students are selected on the basis of score as per the cut off marks. Apart from this minimum eligibility for admission is to have at least 50% aggregate marks in 12th with PCM as the compulsory subject from a recognised board.
