Annasaheb Chudaman Patil (AC Patil) College of Engineering, Kharghar


Location:

AC Patil College of Engineering, fondly called ACPCE, is just a 5 minute walk from Kharghar railway station (Harbour Rly). One can also take a rick from the station if required.

 

Infrastructure:

The infrastructure at AC Patil College of Engineering is decent, not over the top awe-inspiring and all, but simple and optimum. Classrooms are spacious and airy and labs are also good. The college is still under construction but first four floors are almost completed. Maintenance is good (except there is said to be a little leakage in the rainy season!!).

 

Fees:

Rs. 74,630/year

 

Faculty:

This is probably the one thing AC Patil can be proud of. The math faculty is excellent. The other faculties too are good (at least in the first year, after that it doesn't really matter because you get immune to such things). Instrumentation and electrical faculty is outstanding. The electronics and telecommunication faculty is quite good throughout. Barring a few professors who are good, the computer science faculty is said to be average, and so is the I.T. faculty.

 

Attendance:

Attendance is very strict in the first year. They generally expect you to keep your attendance above 75%. If you do manage to have your attendance creeping really low, they might just take you to task. It is therefore advised to take the attendance part a bit seriously. Electrical and electronics dept. have a very strict pattern for attendance. The students are allegedly made to pay some nominal fine for low attendance. However, the detention practice has never been followed out here. Other departments have average compulsion on attendance and no serious problems are faced.

 

Crowd:

The crowd in general is average. It actually depends upon luck. But the seniors are really friendly and helpful here. And also you do manage to find a decent, if not great crowd eventually. Most of the public is from “Dhule” (Patil). Quite good crowd, you would say, when you a give a thought to the distance at which it is located from Mumbai.

 

Canteen :

AC Patil College of Engineering's canteen is only on the ground floor, so is out of reach for people from the third floor onwards (in the sense that one cannot make regular entries and exits to and from the canteen). It is clean and well maintained. Food is decent.

 

Hangouts:

Kharghar is one place where you can have a lot of enjoyment. Most places to linger around are close to the college premises. There are 2 malls Little World and Glomax, hills for trekking and small ponds. There’s  “Hiranandani” complex which is circumvented by restaurants of various cuisines and also hookah parlours.

 

Festivals:

At AC Patil College of Engineering, technical festivals are held in odd semesters and cultural festivals are held in even semesters. Technical festivals differ from branch to branch. The cultural festival is called Rhythm.

 

Placements:

Placements at A.C. Patil College of Engineering are decent. Campus placement in last three years with minimum salary, maximum salary and average salary is as given below:

  • Minimum  : Rs. 1,08,000/- P.A.
  • Maximum : Rs. 4,05,000/- P.A.
  • Average   : Rs. 3,15,000/- P.A.

Verdict:

A very good option for students with marks in the lower 100s. The location is, however, a minor glitch and traveling this far is a deterrent factor for Non-Navi Mumbaikars. So opt for it only if you think you can handle that.

I can't say anything right now as I'm a fresher... but except the case the internal marks, I never found anything bad in this college... faculties are above average... but you will never come to know abt them unless you be in touch with them... festival was quite good... and I appreciate the cleanliness maintained... a much better option for an average student...

Good luck to friends those who are not a part of this college or somehow escaped from being part of it & if you are then you are likely to suffer in your coming future despite of your abilities. For Ex: you will not be able to score a 60% marks easily and suddenly find yourself not eligible for many competitive exams, CAT, GATE etc. The INTERNAL MARKS given here are very less, have seen close friends of mine who were very good at their academics & co-curriculars but have lost their zeal and compelled to adopt different fields. This is not a good choice for engg. If you are not getting an engg college then do some other appropriate degree.

First of all congratulations to friends those who are not a part of or somehow have managed to escape from being a part of this college & unfortunately if you are then your future will likely to suffer during the 4 year. Course as well as after your engg as this college gives nothing innovative in you and it abstains what you have had before engg, this is hard to believe but true. I have seen some friends of me who were very good at their academics & co-curriculars but have lost their zeal and adopted different fields. This is not a good choice for engg. If you are not getting an engg college then do some other appropriate degree in some other institutes with your interest. "ALL THE BEST"

This is the worst college than schools in villages. I beg all fresh students to never opt this college. Teachers have no sympathy for students. No fun loving teachers are here. They don't even crack a PJ. Life here is worst than hell. Teachers have done masters and yet, they lack in basic concepts and vernacular accent. This is the case with the HODs too.

College is avg. Crowd is not too good over here but if you are a decent guy and want to seriously study and achieve success you can manage yourself for 4 yrs.. without indulging yourself into other activities... faculties are avg.. it's obvious that no engg college teaches the students to its fullest, you have to work hard... so overall college is average.

This is very good college for electrical engineering
But for non navi mumbaikar travelling is headache
Also canteen is not spacious
There are fully equipped labs and staff is also supporting except few but college life is poor; no place for doing fun or doing time pass; you have to go home if you bunk
So people who need fun college life please don't come here Overall good college

Worst college. They even fail in you in internals. The professors don't know anything.

If you want to consider doing Engineering in Navi Mumbai, consider Terana, Fr Agnel and PIIT.
