Course Curriculum Overview :

I choose this course because I have an interest and I want to learn and explore Computer science engineering. Faculties are good in cooperate but some of them are less experienced. The exam is moderate if someone studies little per day they can easily manage to pass the exam with good marks.

Internships Opportunities :

We can take the example of the TCS company and the role of CSE students is to make software engineering so basically, all the tasks will be related to this only. The project is on you. You have to decide that whatever project you are making is unique.

Campus Life :

In my college there are so many clubs for the example football club, cricket club, basketball club, table tennis club, badminton court, as well as club and however, selects they have an opportunity to score in national also.
