According to my experience course curriculum and fees structure in this college is best. I have done B.Tech in Civil engineering from this college and the fees expenditure was approximately 3.15 Lakhs. Minimum requirement for admission is to have at least 50% aggregate score in 10+2 with PCM as the compulsory subject, but the final selection for admission is made on the basis of score in entrance examination like JEE Mains. Mode of entrance exam and counselling is online. In counselling colleges are offered to students on the basis of exam score as per the cut off marks; counselling is followed by document verification. Students having good merit are offered with scholarships.
