Careers360-Tell us about the facilities related to academics. How’s the library, laboratories and how supportive are teachers to students in case of queries and doubts related to academics.

Akchat-Facilities regarding the labs and library are okay because much time is not provided to us to spend in library and labs and we have to attend the classes , teachers are quite helpful in regards to providing help to the students but much of the extra-curricular activities cannot happen due to pack schedules of the classes as there remains a very little time to explore other things besides classes.

Careers360-How do the academic activities go? Do exams and other academic events conducted on time.

Akchat- Academically college provide us enough teaching material which we can utilize to study and to score good marks in our exams and all the events and activities are conducted on time.

Careers360-Do college promote extracurricular and interdisciplinary studies. Are seminars and conferences organised by college.

Akchat- No college doesn’t provide us much time for extracurricular activities as most of the time of any of the student is invested in the classes and if anyone needs to do some other work then the student has have to leave the class and attendance is also not provided .

Careers360- What all facilities do you have in the campus? What do you like here the most which you feel is unique and differentiating?

Akchat-We have great library and labs present for the fulfilment of our work , here the students are destined towards the future and all round development and focus on their careers especially towards GATE and getting placed in different companies .

Careers360- Tell us about the faculty-student ratio here and about the teacher-student relationship in your understanding.

Akchat-Faculty student ratio could be improved a bit as the number of students are more, but the faculty is quite supportive and help us to the extent possible.

Careers360-What activities are offered in the institute? Are there any clubs etc for the various extracurricular activities? Which ones have you taken up and are a part of?

Akchat-Activities that are offered are at the time of Enigma and other Cultural Fests during that time different activities are performed along with the collaboration of the students and faculty members, I have been part of the singing, coding and gaming competition group.

Careers360- Describe a typical day at your institute – what do you do from the time you wake up till you go to sleep?

Akchat-Most of the time is spent on classes as the attendance is mandatory and the bar is high in order for us to appear in the sessional exams so students spend most of the time attending classes.

Careers360- How comfortable are your hostels and how about the cleanliness factor over there?

Akchat-Our college promotes the use of no poly bags and cleanliness is maintained all throughout the college and hostel rooms are fine.

Careers360- What about the medical facilities? Can you avail requisite medical attention if needed in an emergency?

Akchat-For medical issues we have doctors appointed and facility of vehicles is also provided.

Careers360-How do you balance your studies, projects, exams and other activities?

Akchat-All are inter-related to each other without studies I cannot complete my project and neither can I do well in my exams so as mandatory part I have to balance each and every prospect and being a day scholar becomes slightly more difficult due to the involvement of traveling time so I have to manage my daily activities accordingly.

Careers360-Tell us about the clubs and societies at the campus and how significant are they from your point of view or students point of view?

Akchat-Not so much attention is provided to the clubs and extra-curricular because attendance here is more mandatory over other activities, much stress should be given to these activities for the all-round development of any student specially the clubs related to coding and communication should be made and should be lead on by senior students in college as it will benefit both the juniors as well as the seniors.

Careers360-Is there any in-house magazine or journal for the latest events or happenings at the institute?

Snehlata Sinha Student Expert 26th Jul, 2019


As per the qualification of faculty is being discussed they are being fabulous towards their teaching and they teach with passionate feeling, they all are highly qualified they all are well deserved and very co operative at the same time . They all are very interactive whether for the academics or about the social welfare they always get in touch with the students. The standard of teaching is very nice in the college and it is the strength of the college.
Placements in United Group Of Institutions is quite convincing. Its graph of students getting placed with a bright future is continuously growing up. The job opportunities for graduates as well as postgraduates is number one. Just because of it's good job opportunities for students, it is in the list of top 10 colleges of Uttar Pradesh. The large number of students got placed every year. Around 60-70% students got placed more are from non-core branches like CS, EN and IT. There is a unique process of interview with percentage criteria. The major companies that have visited the campus are Wipro, TCS, HCL, IBM, NESTLE, QA , Amazon, RBS. Last year's maximum package was 7 lakh and average package is 3 lakh per year.

Hope this helps.
