Smt. Indira Gandhi College of Engineering (SIGCE), Koparkhairane


Location:

Smt. Indira Gandhi College of Engineering (SIGCE) is a 15 minute walk from Kopar Khairane railway station which falls on the Thane-Vashi/Nerul route. Although there seem to be a few buses which go to this college from the station, it's best not wait for them. If you have company from the railway station it is advisable to take an autorickshaw as it only comes to around 15-20 bucks.

 

Infrastructure:

Another factor where the college takes a hitting is that there is no campus to speak of except a small volleyball court.

 

Fees:

Rs. 62,080/year

Crowd:

There is a majority of Maharashtrian crowd. Boys to girls ratio is 7:3. However, people are quite cooperative and enthusiastic. The Electrical batch students are said to have a bad reputation.

 

Canteen:

The canteen  of Smt. Indira Gandhi College of Engineering (SIGCE) is not spacious and it becomes suffocating during breaks. But apart from that, it is hygienic and the food is cheap and edible.

Verdict:

Not recommended for anyone travelling too far as it won't be worth it. However, for below average scorers & low scoring students staying in Thane or Navi Mumbai, it isn't bad option to settle for either. "You get in here, obtain your degree without much interference from the college and get going", that's what a student has to say.

This is the most pathetic college I have ever been to. All gauti professors from shivaji university are there who don't get a job anywhere else in any other company or college. One of the staff member eats pan and guthka during college hours n spits in corridors.

This must be the worst college ever possible for engineering. The most pathetic college ever. they torture the students but teach nothing at all. In every semester you will only find one good prof rest all are of no use. You get special preference if you are married. Your attendance gets increased. Never ever opt for electrical engineering in this college. I have made the worst decision of my life by opting for this college. It will be better if you all keep off this college. Rather opt for other stream itself. You will have better chances of getting a job and a better future

It's the worst college that one can be in. Faculty oh God! All Nagpur crowd who can't get be no where else so they have got in here. All losers. No campus, no canteen, no study, no fun only exploitation to get a passing marks in viva/practical/ internal papers. Worst place. Keep away from this. I have passed out 5 years back I have known from the reaction from the companies' HR they don't respect this college.
