CT vs GNA vs Rayat Bahra University

CT vs GNA vs Rayat Bahra University

We travel north to Punjab now as we analyze the best private universities in the ‘Food Bowl of India’

CT, GNA, RIMT and Rayat Bahra University

CT, GNA, RIMT and Rayat Bahra University rank amongst the top private universities in Punjab

Punjab is home to some highly reputable names in the private education sector. Amongst these plethoras of names, our focus will remain on five universities specifically, namely CT University, GNA University, Rayat Bahara University, RIMT University and Akal University.

These universities represent a chunk of the private institutions operational in Punjab. This article will aim to compare these universities on the basis of some pre-defined factors. These factors are given below:

The Factors

Defining factors for college/university comparison is necessary as, on paper, each institution looks similar. Factors help students in distinguishing between two colleges/universities which otherwise seem very similar.

These factors are given below:

1. Placements

In the mind of most students, both admitted college students and prospective students, the question of college placements remain the most critical. The reasoning behind this rationale is straightforward: making money straight after graduation is a highly enticing prospect.

The appeal of B.Tech lies primarily in its acceptability as an industry-grade course. While other technical UG courses such as BCA and B.Sc aren’t as rewarding right after graduation compared to B.Tech. 

2. Student perception of a college/university

Student perception is the most subliminal factor on this list and often plays a key role in shaping a student’s choice regarding a college. Most students make their choice regarding a college based on their own prejudices, each more subjective and inconsequential than the other.

Raman Ahuja, a B.Tech student at an engineering college in Greater Noida had a chance to a highly reputed university in South India. His reason for not joining: the weather is very bad.

This is not a singular case, as many students reject colleges based on any number of trivial factors. Such trivialities put together to form the factor we call here student perception. Though it is neither perfect nor scientific, it remains a highly important factor for conducting a holistic college comparison.

3. Infrastructure

Defining the infrastructural aptitude of a college/university is a very important exercise as most students do not know understand its true meaning. In short, any facility provided by the college to improve the learning experience of a student can be grouped under infrastructural.

From hiring the right faculties to keeping the ideal student-to-faculty ratio and providing top-draw research capabilities for students, infrastructure covers all these facets of an educational institution. Many students make the error of judging colleges by the aesthetic beauty of the campus rather than analyzing hard, cold institutional facts. In other words, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’

4. Affordability

What is money, but the freedom to choose?

From Bryan Modesto

The quote explains the role of affordability succinctly. Money offers one the freedom to choose, nothing more and nothing less. However, for most students in India, this freedom is not afforded. With private colleges charging a fortune for simple UG courses, most students are bound to consider affordability as a defining factor for choosing a college.
