want to join college for btch in cse with AI i live in dehradun uttrakhand Witch is best lpu or Chandigarh University or cgu

Vishal Gupta 18th Feb, 2020

Hello dear,

according to your choices ipu will be more better than chandigarh university due to quality  education and placements. The course you are selecting is also very good and will have a great scope in future but i think that these both of the colleges are not good for this particular course as it is a newly started stream .In my opinion u live in dehradun so upes will be great option for artificial intelligence and machine learning as it is having a specialization in it and provides a good practical and theory knowledge.

Hope my answer is enough and your doubt is clear.

All the best for your future.

if I will qualify in manipal institute of technology and lovely professional University,so which college I should choose for aeronautical engineering?

Harshita Sharan Srivastava Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant,

I'll recommend you to join Manipal Institute if you want to go for aeronautical engineering.  At manipal Institute students are exposed to case studies and problem-based learning, brainstorming, written tests, computer simulation, group discussions, industrial training seminars, technical seminars and projects. Students are placed in organisations dealing with products and services related to the aerospace industry and software solutions such as Tata Consultancy Services, Atkins Aerospace, Honeywell, Accenture, etc.

All the best


manipal institute of technology or lovely professional University,which is best college for aeronautical engineering?

Shubhangi sinha 16th Feb, 2020

Hello Tarang,

Going to lovely professional University will be much better when compared to Manipal institute of technology. There are many negative reviews on Manipal university. I see very few satisfied reviews over there.. where on other hand LPU is doing very well in educational and facility providing... Comparing with facilities provided,both the Institutes provide same kind of facilities, but when coming to quality education and placements, LPU have a good rating. So, choose accordingly.

Good luck,

Hope it helps :)
