Aligarh Muslim University Campus Facilities/Infrastructure

Class of 2019

I am pursuing B Arch course at AMU and right now am in 2nd year. Education wise the university is good for studying architecture course. To confess about fee structure it is actually expensive for the middle class family but according to the infrastructure and facilities it is of worth paying it. The campus is huge and it is well furnished with modern amenities. Hostel accommodation is nice and almost all the facilities are available and there is a mess and the food is not bad. AMU Placement scenario is pretty good and the placement cell arranges workshops, seminars and other industry relevant activities to enhance industry exposure.
