Choosing the Right College
Most people are confused which engineering or medical college to choose, as there are often a plenty of options in front of us. If you want to pursue engineering or medical course, chances are you will get a lot of offers from various engineering/medical colleges and institutes in Odisha. But a bad decision can affect your overall career life. Choose a good college and it can be your first small step towards having a successful career.
The most important factor while selecting a college is the quality of faculty and teaching. A good college emphasizes on good teaching, and is known for its accomplished faculty members. Infrastructure is the second most important factor while choosing a college. Infrastructure does not only mean a good looking building rather it means whether a college has sufficient amount of infrastructure according to its intake capacity including classrooms, administrative building, workshop, computer labs, and various laboratories etc. Placements also play an important role in choosing a good college but its not the only criteria. We have seen people asking about placement as their top question but placement is not the first and last criteria to choose a college. If you are good at academics you will surely get a placement. Also placement statistics of most of the colleges are mostly unreliable.
