Mahatma Gandhi Mission's College of Engineering and Technology (MGMCET), Kalamboli


Location:

It takes 10 mins in rickshaw to reach Mahatma Gandhi Mission's College of Engineering and Technology (MGMCET) from Khandeshwar Railway station on Harbour Rly. (costs around Rs. 25). It is located near the start of the Mumbai-Pune expressway, real close to the McDonalds where you halt to have a snack while going to Lonavala.

 

Infrastructure:

They say its probably not worth the price you are paying. Still, recently some improvement has been done. The labs are well-equipped and resourceful, class rooms are spacious. The campus is huge but doesn’t look lively. Infra is being improved but at a slow rate.

 

Fees:

BTech Fee: Rs. 82,800/year

MTech Fee: Rs. 55,000/year

 

Placements:

80% of the students at Mahatma Gandhi Mission's College of Engineering and Technology get placement. The average package is Rs. 3 lac p.a.

 

Faculty:

Most of the teachers are fresh graduates themselves. Some get pissed when doubts are asked, whereas some are chilled out. Biomedical branch has the best faculty. If you want some serious studying done, then this is not the place for you.

 

Attendance:

Students with exponentially decreasing attendance figures such as 30% to 3% to 0.3% have been found to get away easily. So no problems on this front. “Just produce a fake medical certificate and it’ll do the work for you”, says one of their student.

 

Crowd:

Majority of the students come from villages. 5% are said to be ‘impossible to last a conversation with’. Students say that you cannot possibly hangout with this crowd except if you fall into one of the above categories.

 

Canteen:

The food was not edible once upon a time. At the most, you could have Pepsi. “With anything else”, says a student, “you may have been risking your life.” However, things have changed now and the canteen is a much better place. Students love the canteen now.

 

Hangouts:

You will have to travel to Khargar or Belapur for spending some quality time with friends. There is a "tapri" outside college which is patronized by many students. Most of the students dont really travel, they prefer chilling on the campus itself.

 

Festivals:

The technical festival ‘Crysalis’ takes place in September. Cultural festival Arete comes around mid-March. Model rocketing is a novel event in the tech-fest of Mahatma Gandhi Mission's College of Engineering and Technology (MGMCET)

Verdict:

Stay away if you want to live and have a life. The crowd is depressing and there are no pretty faces to give respite. Everything and everyone takes a lot of time in getting things done, especially anything which has some form filling.

the campus is good.. though faculty is not that great but you'll definitely find some good teachers.. submissions doesn't bother that much to some teachers but some may harass you on personal vibes...
studies depends wholly on you no matter which clg you're in...
crowd is good and hardly some come from village..
infrastructure is good..
you'll have a good time here if you are with right grp..

I would request each one of you reading this... Don't come to this college please! I wasted my 4 years here, sure I made friends & had fun...but come on, this is not all you want from life... besides you can get friends, fun, and most importantly a good job from colleges far far better than MGM. This colleges is one of the worst colleges in Navi Mumbai.. please I beg of you, don't take admission in this college! I have friends here, who were optimistic like the person below, and are now regretting, seriously!!! If you are content with below average education and are ready to run for jobs off campus (because there is no placement here, trust me!) then you are gladly welcome here. Also, the staff is very un-supportive and they don't give a damn abt your education or anything for that matter... they don't even bother to complete the syllabus. So, bottom line...this colleges' a waste of money n time!

One more thing, you don't want to pay 98,000 (or may be more, idk, coz every year the fees increases drastically!!) to have fun in a crap hole....

SEE.. I'm a 1st year student...
I'm going to tell you what I personally feel about this college...
A UNIQUE life experience..
So big campus.. 1 of the biggest in Mumbai university..!!
You will interact with medical, dental, physiotherapy, nursing, mass media, bsc students..!!
A big playground !! OK ok canteen you can also go to cafeteria or nearby McD..
The crowd is bit cheapo !! but find a good friend circle.. usually everyone lives in their groups!! crowd is not an issue..
You will surely get students like you...!!
Teaching faculty is avg... you can find good simultaneously bad teachers.. (usually every college faces this problem)
Placement is good..!!
SOOO WHAT THE HELL!!
COME and enjoy..
HARBOUR LINE...1. RAIT, 2. MGM... I personally feel this

WORST COLLEGE IN MUMBAI.......

I am a biotech student from this very college... If I could coax even one student to not opt for this college... I would feel like I have done the greatest charity in my life!! This college has everything to be disliked... from campus to crowd.. studies & fest!!! Even the fest sucks a big time here!! The people who have mentioned that its an ok-ok college... are perhaps very optimistic in their lives... seriously guys...this college is a strict no-no... you are going to regret it every moment of your life, don't opt for it even for the sake of getting a degree... No biotech or any other branch... nothing rocks... biotech ppl do have good labs.. but the reality is the labs don't even have cotton (a pre-requisite) we were asked to bring cottons, spirit for spirit lamp & every little piece of dust... also the lab is partly shared by M.Sc students.. (this year it was.. can't assure of coming years).
-No placements
-No fest... students literally begged the principal to let us have a fest this year..
-No infra
-No studies
-No college life
The verdict holds true... please... I beg you... don't even think of this college... even in your dreams!!!

This is the worst college ever... I repeat... THE WORST COLLEGE!!!!! Here is why..
1. Everything is sad about it, forget crowd and campus... there is a lack of basic infra!!

2. They keep starting up new branches without even bothering to gather enough resources required... I did my biotech from this college...and believe me...when we were in 2nd year we almost had no practicals..not even during practical exams (yes!!...thats mgm) because there were no labs ...they were being constructed.

3. Teachers...yes they are all themselves studyin..are frshers...& don't even bother to take lectures!

4. There will be no electricity at times which also leads to no practicals...no water supply most of the time... stinky toilets... water lodging during rainy season..& what not!!

In short...if you really hate your life..you are welcome to this college..there is exactly nothing good about this college...and I am saying this out of my personal experience!!! Only biomed branch is in a slightly better position..they had decent placements...th at too just one company! Other branches like IT & COMPS had companies (and by companies I mean just 2 of it) coming..but no one got placed...and rest all other branches...well they didn't even have a company coming!!

My verdict...PLEAS E...DON'T COME TO THIS COLLEGE...EVEN IF THEY OFFER YOU FREE EDUCATION...DO NOT COME HERE!!

The college has gone from best to the worst. I completed my B.E. from the same college in 2007 and let me tell you one of the best colleges with good faculties and of course scenic campus. I worked for few years and then again I came back to institute to complete my M.E.. But that was my biggest mistake ever.

Many of the good faculties have left and the one who are still there are good for nothing. No PG lectures are ever conducted.

And the worst part is the Principal who really never bothers to resolve students issues.

PG Students are given some stipend with a stipulated work load, there has never been a single month where Accounts Dept. have not created any issue on releasing the stipend

No proper guidance for PG Project.

Admin staff and exam cell staff is not at all helpful. I have seen so many students crying and cursing the exam cell in-charge for creating unnecessary exam related issues.

I will never advise anyone to step in this college, at least for pursuing M.E.

With current scenario the situation seems to be getting worse.

Not a bad college at all!! Actually, a good college to say!! it has improved a lot now... the canteen is quite good, teaching is good too, the campus does seem lively and the crowd is pretty good. I'll have to say that the bus service has improved a lot now as compared to before! For enjoyment, well,there's McDonalds nearby and Cafe coffee day inside the campus where you can hangout! So, mostly no need to go to Kharghar or whatsoever often :-)
Unbelievable, but yeah the office counters have improved too! :D
So, overall.. if you wish, you CAN go for this college! :-)
