Ansal vs Apeejay Stya vs BML Munjal vs GD Goenka

Haryana is not wildly popular when it comes to having the best universities in India. However, there are a number of colleges and universities in the state which have a reasonably good reputation.

Ansal University, Apeejay Stya, BML Munjal and GD Goenka

Ansal University, Apeejay Stya, BML Munjal and GD Goenka are the most popular private universities in Gurgaon

The presence of private universities in Haryana is also highly noticeable. Institutions such as Ansal, Apeejay Stya, BML Munjal and GD Goenka have offered students a choice besides the overflowing government institutions which are too difficult to get into.

While some private colleges can be deemed worthwhile, there are a few others who act as mere ‘degree shops’. The quality of education at such private colleges is below par and simply too aberrant to be allowed to function.

It is for this reason that scrutinizing each college based on a given set of parameters is highly advisable. While government colleges can be trusted to a certain degree for providing a perceivably good (if not literally good) education, private colleges and universities do not inspire the same trust. This is primarily because, in India, the backing of the government lends weight to any given institution almost instantly. On the other hand, private colleges have to earn their spurs by constantly improving across all avenues to gain a good status.

Depreciating value of engineers: Time for introspection?

Since India has been independent, engineering as a profession has never seen a down round. Every era of modern India has been shaped in some form by the engineers of the respective generation. The establishment of the IITs sowed the seeds for ‘scientific temper’ amongst Indians, a feeling which has carried to future generations.

However, as we currently stand on the cusp of another radical tech revolution, the crowd of engineering talent on hand does not lack in quantity but lacks severely in quality. Part of this mess has been the phenomenon of private colleges and universities, many of whom have are not equipped to offer technical courses like engineering.

A report commissioned by the Government of India in 2016 deemed the unregulated standards for higher education to be a major cause for the rapid rise of private education in the country. While some private colleges and universities can be called proficient, the story is otherwise for the majority of the private colleges.

Is a solution near in sight? Experts think there might be a solution. ‘The problem of private colleges could end exactly how it began’ believes Tarun Madhav, an educationist.’ Students today are joining private engineering colleges as they assume a B.Tech degree will land them a job, no matter how mediocre their education at the college is. As the days of mass hiring have come to an ebbing, these private colleges will not be able to deliver placements. No placements will mean no students next year. Problem solved!’

While the premise of Tarun’s solution is right, the execution of this solution might be so easy. For instance, there is also the problem of private colleges making lofty claims during the time of admissions. What does one do in such cases?

Tarun replies to this point by making the point that the effort required to rid the system of such dodgy colleges has to be collective. ‘In India, we have a problem. Every time we face a big problem, we expect the government to help us out. To stop colleges from making such claims, hold them accountable for every word they say. If they backtrack on their claims, protest and bring the name of the accused party into the spotlight. Most problems can be solved without waiting ceremoniously for the government to arrive and swish its magic wand!’

The Factors

As we established the point of being vigilant while choosing a college of study, the right way to do it is by establishing a blueprint of factors which are fundamental to the assessment of any given university.

The factors have been listed below:

  1. Placements

Placements are a key distinguishing factor between engineering colleges. The first question most aspirants want to know about a prospective college is the range of placement package their graduates are getting.

Though the exercise may seem too lop-sided, it remains highly popular. Many private engineering colleges use their impressive performance in campus recruitment as a plank to market their college. Part of the appeal for top-tier IITs and IIMs is also down to them managing to gain the best placement figures in the country.

If you wish to know the placement data of a given college, you can find the same on the institution’s website. If there is no mention of placements on the college website, we would advise you to reconsider taking admission to the given college.   

  1. Student perception of a college/university

In order to be known as a decent college, it should have a respectable perception. There is no secret to gauge the perception of a college. The simple way is to ask your friends and relatives what they feel about the given college. If the answer is resoundingly positive, go for it.

Another method which is more reliable is to find out what the given college’s alumni have to say. These days, you can easily access alumni reviews of colleges through premier education sites such as ReviewAdda

  1. Infrastructure

As a college aspirant, gauging the college infrastructural level is a fairly complex task. But first, it is important to understand the meaning of infrastructural level of a college.

The infrastructural level of a college refers to the highest level you can reach as a student studying at the given college by using the resources made available by the college. For instance, the infrastructural level of foreign universities far exceeds that of the IITs, who lag behind in research output.  

The best way to judge a college’s infrastructure is simple: just ask. Visit the college website and check the following:

  1. Presence of state-of-the-art labs
  2. Academically challenging curriculum
  3. Faculties with PhDs (at least 50%)
  4. Average teaching experience of faculties (should be 7-10 years)
  5. Special allowance for students involved in research
  6. Affordability

If you belong to a middle-class family like most engineering aspirants, the prospect of paying a high fee for a B.Tech course offered at a private college must be daunting. For this reason, the affordability of a given course remains a very important factor.

As a student, it can be difficult to evaluate whether the fee demanded is fair. One way to do it is by calculating the time you will need to recover the money you paid as college fees. This will be done by comparing annual tuition fee with the average annual package offered at the college campus during placements. The table below simplifies the concept:

Time taken to recover B.Tech fee
