Dr. DY Patil Institute of Engineering and Technology, Pimpri
Dr. DY Patil Institute of Engineering and Technology (DYPIET) is located right behind the Mumbai Pune highway (old) in Pimpri. Traveling by buses is a little inconvenient, because although a number of buses ply on the highway, the college is a 20 minute walk from the bus stops. A vehicle is always preferable.
Provision for internet access has been made available and they have Wi-fi enabled labs but usage is restricted. Classrooms are decent and lectures can be spent sitting without hurting your bums. The labs & the library are manageable too. Parts of the campus are still coming up though. The college hostel is OK, at best. Boys and girls rooms are available at a cost of Rs. 40,000/- per year.
Rs. 80,040/ year
Dr. DY Patil Institute of Engineering and Technology (DYPIET) can actually boast of smart distribution in teaching if not the best of faculty. This is because the difficult subjects are taught by the good and extremely knowledgeable senior professors. Junior professors teach only the ‘doable’ subjects. The teachers are helpful to students.
Moderately strict. Below 75%, and you’ll be fined. However, students with genuine reasons are exempted from it. If you miss a mid-term test you will be fined with around Rs. 1000/-
There are few localities from Pune. Majority of the crowd is from other parts of Maharashtra. So it's a mix of urban as well as semi-urban people at DY Patil College of Engineering, Pimpri.
There is a McDonald’s nearby, where students often hang out. Other than this, there is Big Cinema, E-square, and something called Dakshin. The "golawala" right outside the college is quite popular.
There is no canteen which the college can call its own. Although this may come as a shocker for many students, only hostelites get the liberty to use the canteen as it's part of the hostel. Others have to manage somehow. However, recently even this only canteen happened to shutdown and there's sign of reopening it as yet. Students have to rely on numerous food stalls outside the college.
The technical festival of Dr. DY Patil Institute of Engineering and Technology is called Zion. The Cultural fest is held sometime in March. The sports festival is called Parakram.
The placements are okay, nothing great. Average salary for the previous three years is about 2.8 lac/annum. No big companies with hefty salary slips are known to visit the campus and the maximum salary is usually just a little more than the average salary at 3.1 lac/annum. TechMahindra recruits people in numbers, but that’s about it. E&TC has the best placements in terms of number of students placed followed by Computers and Electronics. A few very lucky ones get placed from the Instrumentation Department.

Not great, not very bad either. Could, and maybe should, be avoided.
