Is SRM a good college?? What are worst comments?

thomas joy 8th Dec, 2019
Hi Vimalraj
SRM, University is one of the top institutes in India. It is ranked in top 20 by many ministers of Government like NIRF etc

The best thing about SRM is it offers is huge placements are offered, In which more than 500 companies come. Mainly from IT, field placements are given. For placements starting salary is 10,000 and up to 41 lakh per year package is given so far.

Alumni is not so coordinated in the college but helps the students for getting jobs and for further studies.

Faculty members are of good qualification and selected by interviews and other process.

Hostel facility is really good and the food is nice, compared with other colleges in Chennai.
Fees are affordable but are a little expensive. College gives Scholarships for top rankers in the entrance exam.

All together college has good ambience and conducts a lot of activities which is really good.

From my research, some of the bad comments about college were on the teaching of some of the faculty members. Also, placements are more in the IT field and other streams have somewhat average placement.

Also, the climate in Tamilnadu is extreme hot, which may be difficult for some of the students.
Hope you get it, If you have any doubts please do comment.
Thank you
