one of the worst training & placement cell across engineering colleges in Mumbai. Don't Expect a job from here instead you should apply off campus, that will help you much more.

Worst teachers for subjects like SPA and ED. In the subject of SPA, they don't teach anything and ask that answers/program s in term test. What nonsense!!! Term test paper checking is horrible in this college. It's like, students who don't deserve better marks score the best marks and the one who are intelligent and is equipped with knowledge scores the least marks. Teachers give marks according to the content, the one with more lines of answers gets more marks and one with quality one but short one loses it. The faculty of FE is the worst. The another thing is that in term test papers, they put MCQs. What the hell is this man!!!!! Spoon feeding. This college produces donkeys every year

TCET is overall a very nice college.... Despite the fact that students come from a mixed background... TCET staff does its job at its best. They take a lot of efforts... Nice infra, very good faculty, average crowd!! TCET is a good option for spending your 4 crucial years... you'll definitely enjoy!

I am a TCETian. I would like to give some fresh info regarding Thakur college of engineering. Attendance is not very strict if you are ready to remedials which are quite easy. The fees currently is Rs 1,10,265. The placement is 95%. But the thing that might interest you is that the highest placement in 2012-13 was Rs 34,00,000. Yup a whooping 34 Lacs.
Well if you want to groom yourself TCET might be a good place as far as technical as well as personality is concerned.
