Well, Let me answer this to my best.
I’m currently in my 3rd year and I’m in PEC University of Technology.
I have many friends in Chitkara.
First and Foremost:
You’ll get mixed reactions on this.
The university is mostly for the kids who couldn’t score that well in JEE and don’t get their dream college or their dream branch in a specific college of their choice. So you’ll find more than a thousand students with relatively similar score in JEE. According to me the reputation isn’t that good. 🙂
Curriculum: They level of education is really good! Coming from a govt. college I can surely say that the teachers are strict, labs are better and they’ll teach you pretty well. On the other hand in my college(which is highly reputed), the education level is not that good.( trust me on this ).
