Yadavrao Tasgaonkar College of Engineering & Management (YTCEM), Bhivpuri
Yadavrao Tasgaonkar College of Engineering & Management (YTCEM) is located about 1.5kms from Bhivpuri Railway station on the CST- Karjat route (Central Rly). There is no problem in terms of accessibility after you reach the station, since the college bus facility is very well managed.
The infrastructure has greatly improved since the college began in 2008-09 and is still improving. Well-equipped labs and a good library are some of the positives here. There is no air-conditioning in classes or labs but fans work properly. There is a basketball court, volleyball court and even a swimming pool!
The faculty for the first year isn’t something to boast about. Many students find it difficult to comprehend since the professors are not very good at communication. For the remaining years the faculty is moderate, and majority of junior professors can be found teaching. Mechanical faculty is good and stands out among the others. The professors are supportive and knowledgeable.
Moderately lenient. Students do not face any firm actions against them. Just a few university papers are asked to be written of the attendance falls below 50%.
Majority is from Mumbai-city and everyone here is fun-loving and wanting to participate actively in co-curriculars. “It is the sheer lack of facility that de-motivates us”, quotes one student.
There is nothing near the college except for farms, hills and a river with no water. Most of the students prefer to hangout inside the college campus itself at something known as “Mushroom huts”. Others just leave for home.
During monsoon students sometimes go to the famous "Bhivpuri Waterfalls".
The canteen is “cheap”. Food is inedible and only a handful of students are found munching on food here. Some of the students suspect adulteration in soft drinks. Water tastes bad. One of them exaggeratedly says, “Ulti bhi nahi hoti ab to”. The canteen is named renaissance, but has nothing to do with the name.
There's a cafe called 'Chai & Chocolate' apart from canteen which is much better.
Yadavrao Tasgaonkar College of Engineering & Management (YTCEM) celebrates its Technical Festival – Technocrash in the 1st week of March. The cultural festival Tarang is held in March-end. Sports festivals recieve great response.
Very few companies visited for first couple of batches selecting very few students.

Keep it as one of your last options. However, regularity in lectures and a fun-loving crowd might make it comparatively better than other colleges around the same cut-offs.
