which college is better for btech in cse from SRM chennai ,amrita University Coimbatore, shiv nadar University, mukesh patel mumbai in descending order?

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 23rd Feb, 2020

Hii

According to me, first choice would be SRM Chennai.  The second amrita university coimbatore followed by shiv nadar and then mukesh one of Mumbai.

The SRM has been one of the best private college after BITS and VIT. But above all these college are not the choice but the last step. So, you should try for NITs or IIITs or IITs or some government university like DTU, PU etc..

Hope it helps

which is better for btech in SRM,vit or snu?

jishua thomas 13th Feb, 2020

hello aspirant...

If you have mentioned the course you are interested in, it would have been easy to navigate you through the college details. Infact the college quality depends on the course you desire from, which means some courses have better placements and rank in some colleges but they wont be good for other courses. In terms of infrastructure the vit and srm are almost equally competitive.

hope this helps

which is better for cse SRM main campus or shiv nadar University?

Swati Umang 31st Jan, 2020

Hello!

Every place has its own pros and cons. SRM and SNU, both offer decent to good placements. The campus is moreover the same except for the location that they are based in. Cost can be a determining factor.

You need to weigh your options and then come to a decision because choosing the right college is very important. SRM is more known than SNU mostly because of its location.

Hope it helps.
