Galgotias College of Engineering & Technology, Noida Review
Galgotias engineering colleges is the most reputed and respected college in Greater Noida. It comes among the top engineering colleges in Gautam Budh Technical University formerly UPTU. It is known for its infrastructure and placements. The college management is very good and looks forward for development of students. Overall this college is good for study and many students from different parts of the country come in this college to study.
Connectivity of the college
College is situated on the expressway of the greater Noida and is little before the ‘Pari Chowk'. You have to take the yellow bus from the sec 37 metro station of botanical garden and you will reach here in just 45 minutes. After that you don't need to take any type of transportation as the college is situated on the road. So as far as my opinion the college connectivity is good. Since it is near to the Pari Chowk , so if you are coming from the other parts of the Uttar Pradesh then you won't find any type of difficulty. If you are living in the 30 km vicinity or little more than you can do daily up and down from you home too. In the morning lot buses are available for the college.
Infrastructure of the college is good.Since the college is now becoming deemed university, so the management is putting more attention for making the world class campus. You have lot of blocks for academics, management etc. College is having engineering and management courses block separately.The college is spreads in 15 acres campus and it is more but the constructed part is in this area only. Proper arrangement of drinking and sanitation is there in the college. You have good classrooms but modern teaching aids are less. I mean there are modern teaching aids in specific room. A large library is there for each year of the engineering and you electronic system for issuing the book. Lot of books is there in the library apart from the course books. College has its dedicated hostel and it is quite good with 24 hour security for the students. Currently lots of other classrooms are being constructed in the college. College is having a dedicated common hall and an amphitheatre too.
College is having good sports facility inside the campus. College is having its teams for various events like basket ball, table tennis. College have all the basic grounds like cricket, basket ball etc. These grounds are similar to the good colleges ground. An annual fest is organized every year to celebrate the sports day in which different team for various colleges come in the college to participate. So if you are interested in sports this place is quite good for you.
College offers it's mode of transportation with a nice fleet of buses. I don't know the exact number buses but yes they are sufficient. They drop and take students from different part of the cities. Also the charge for this service is minor and you can do up and down to your home easily. College has its own parking area, so if you are interested in driving your own mode of transportation then you can get you mode transportation daily without problem.
Lot of entertainment activities are conducted in the college every year. College is having its dedicated music bands which participate in the festivals of the colleges like Delhi University. The college also participates in the national level quizzes. So for quiz lovers the opportunity is very good to participate. The music band is very famous in the vicinity. College celebrates its annual festival in the month of March. In this festival lot of activities are organized like dance competition, fashion show, quiz and the music bad competition. You will never get bored in the college if you are little creative type of person.
Actually there are no specific outdoor programs. I mean there is nothing fix that the students will go to the specific position every year. The management always tries to make students aware about the present market conditions. So they organize lot of meeting with industry and other colleges people.For summer training college help the students to choose the location for training. Yes occasionally you are taken to some outside trips to industry or to picnic depending upon the management.
Since the college is most reputed in its vicinity, so good rankers of the University come here to study. Although pass percentage is not that high but it is good comparing the students. College faculty is very good with vast experience of teaching. The college pays more attention towards the teaching of first year student because they are at initial level and to get best results they teach them very well then other year students. Even the principal of the college teaches the first year students to boost up their confidence and moral. Teachers here are specialized in there filed of teaching. So you will not have any type of problem in studying. Lot of teachers here are authors of the many prestigious exam books like GATE etc. Since college is having its own press, so you will not face difficulty in finding the right material for studying.
Mess and Canteen food
College hostel mess is properly made but food is not that good as it should. But it is hygienically prepared. So little disappointment from the food side but there are many separate tiffin services available in the city. So you can get subscription for these types of services. College is also having dedicated canteen. Snacks served are good and at are reasonable rate. Nothing special about the canteen as it has same snacks as in other colleges.
College is known for its placement, thanks to the efforts of the management. Last year lot of companies came and the placement percent was 70 %.Reason for this much of percent of placement only because lot students were not available to clear the company exam or some were not fulfilling the criteria of the company. So if you are dedicated students then college will defiantly provide you the placements.
Hang out zone
The Jagat farm and Ansal Plaza is the most favorite place to hangout.Lot of eateries, General stores and other shops are available here. You will see same information in this column in my every review because all the colleges in greater Noida are very close to each other and they have common place to hangout. Food served outside is very good and at reasonable rate. Great India Place is another very famous and most visited destination for hangout. Here all the cinema hall, clothe shops food chains and other shops are available. It is around 23 Km from the college and it takes only 40 minutes to reach by travelling on expressway.
Fee and school timing
Fee structure of the school is very good as compared to the facilities provided by the college to the students.Fee for four year B.tech program is Rs 120000/- per year and it excludes the hostel fees. Some students also take admission by giving donations in the college. But I don' know the amount of donation. Scholarships are only for students belonging to the schedule caste and other backwards classes.
College timing is as follows:
9.00 A.M to 5.00 P.M and One hour break in between.
