Located in the midst of one of the most crowded places in Pune i.e. Shivajinagar, CoEP has undoubtedly become one of the important landmarks in the area.
CoEP campus is quite big. According to the data available, it is estimated that CoEP campus rests over 36 acres of land. So there’s no shortage of space. In addition to that, all CoEP buildings are the product of early British architecture and look magnificent.
The crowd in CoEP is 60% nerdy and rest 40% are into cultural stuff. It’s fun. But sometimes it gets wierd for the people who dont fall in either of the groups. But yeah all in all, the crowd is fantastic.
Uncountable extra-curricular activities are organized in CoEP through out the academic year. MindSpark, Annual Sports Fest Zest, Regatta and along with that CoEP has been one of the leading prize winners in events like Firodiya Karandak, Purushottam Karandak, Mood Indigo, etc. COEP Pune has the best entrepreneurship cell in the town. It is known as BHAU’s E-Cell that keep on conducting quality events and workshops for entrepreneurs throughout the year. E-Weekend’15 happening this September is a highlight.
Will I get placed?
Over 100 companies visit CoEP every year. During placement seasons, the environment is so rummed up in placement activities that you’ll attend at least one company even though you’re not interested. So that’s the level of placements here.
The faculty in CoEP is highly qualified (or over qualified?). Recently the director of CoEP has been appointed as the AICTE Chief. So you can imagine the level now!
It is mandatory to maintain 75% attendance but then that also depends on the faculty. Some are strict about attendance while some just don’t care. Students are more worried about missing such valuable lectures here.
The fees in CoEP ranges somewhere between 50k-60k which is pretty decent compared to the recent trends.
If you get it, you take it and offer human sacrifices to please the Gods.
