Pimpri-Chinchwad College of Engineering (PCCOE), Nigdi


Location:

Pimpri Chinchwad College Of Engineering (PCCOE) is a 2 minute walk from Akurdi railway station, and the best thing is the fact that the college timings are planned in such a way so as to make train travel convenient. The college has good accessibility by buses also. So reaching the college isn't difficult although it may take more time as it's in the northern extreme of Pune.

 

Infrastructure:

Decent infrastructure. Computer labs are air-conditioned, the hostel and the reading room are Wi-Fi enabled. A unique digital library and a separate reference room are an added advantage at Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering (PCCOE). Boys hostel fees is Rs. 17,000/- while girls hostel fees is a little higher at Rs. 20,000/- per year. Both have an intake capacity of a little over 200 students.

 

Fees:

Rs. 67,747/ year

 

Faculty:

Students give positive feedback about the faculty at Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering (PCCOE). Senior professors have industrial knowledge as well, which is a blessing. The entire staff has good communication skills.

 

Attendance:

Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering is said to be one of the stricter and more discipline-oriented college amongst engineering colleges in Pune. Students are detained if their attendance is below 50%, whatever excuse they come with, it wouldn't suffice. If it's anything between 50 and 75%, students are asked to buy books for the library as fine. The principal is especially particular about discipline and does not like students hanging around in the campus when lectures are on. So even if you do wish to bunk, don't let his sight fall upon you.

 

Crowd:

Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering has about 80% local crowd, and very few OMS students. The crowd is very united. Since the college is far from central Pune, the seats are bound to be filled in with more rural-folk than city-folk.

 

Hangouts:

CCD, Foodies corner, Kati Kebab are few of the popular places where students from PCCOE spend some of their free time. Hot wada pav and samosa pav near the railway station taste really good !!

 

Canteen:

Festivals:

The technical festival of Pimpri Chinchwad College Of Engineering (PCCOE) is called Techligent and is held in February or March. The cultural fest, Utkarsh, is held in February.

 

Placements:

ENTC dept is the worst. Grudges are shown in practicals in case of low attendance or over-smartness, or if you are a better speaker (as in most cases) then the profs. ENTC Dept is worst hit in placements. Students are mostly in the range of 55-60%. So no use of those continuous long, boring lectures. Worst college, all profs believe specially in entc dept, the students should be like them - losers and no jobs in mnc. Please if you are from Pune don't take the college as there is lot of difference between actual pune'ites and pimpri-chinchwa dkars. The former are more liberal and open minded and later very narrow minded. You will face many later mentioned guys and girls here. Do opt for dy akurdi or pimri over this bogey college. Even if you are planning for ms or mba don't even think of this college. As you will definitely get detained if you are studying for the exams. As profs are strictly against the exams mentioned. Profs are total losers here except the tnp officer. So please don't take this even in your worst dreams

The college is reputed only due to its tnp officer. If you remove tnp officer from the scene the college is an apathy. Professors are the biggest pricks. No professor is industrially trained, who didn't get a job and remove their frustrations on the students. Attending their lectures is equivalent to sit for a satsang. It is not an ideal college for Pune guys, as many weak hearted village students make their life difficult. No encouragement of higher studies, have all higher studies cells but no activity. Do opt for better colleges and don't repeat the mistake I did.

Good college as you already must be knowing...

One more thing that nobody specified here is that PCCOE conducts PLUS course for first year students. Believe me, at first it seems like a waste of time and boring, but eventually this 6 days course will turn out to be the best thing you've ever been to! The best thing which ever happened in your little life :D Enjoy and welcome to PCCOE

P.S.- Oh! more good news, PCCOE will hire Scout Agency at no-profit basis to help you in placement process right in the first year!! How lucky!! Can things get any better for you guys? :)
