I joined CU but I left it after completing one year. I never suggest anyone take admission in CU because I do not want you to suffer from what I faced so I can present a better picture for CU. Anyways let’s move further for reasons to not join CU:
Location is main issue:
University is surrounded by villages and farming lands. You will hardly find any restaurants or hotels or any shopping outlet in that area. the area is Gharuan (25 km away from Chandigarh). Many people believe it to be a government university due to the Chandigarh word but it is not a government university.
As per their website, they hold the Limca book of the world record for maximum companies visiting an educational campus in a year. Some self-proclaimed taglines are also used by them like Asia’s fastest-growing university and the best private university (I wonder what happened to Thapar and BITS). Overall, CU is a good business model because over here students are the customers and customer satisfaction is most important. They also have the misconception that they have benchmarked the best practices of elite educational institutes (like IITs). The rules are manipulated accordingly so that maximum monetary profit could be made. Brilliant piece of work is being done by the marketing team to make parents fall in their trap.
Most faculty over here are young and immature people who did their Masters and after gaining an experience of 2-3 years in other third rate private colleges like CU itself, joined CU. The biggest problem is that CU doesn’t have any sort of research infrastructure and PhD in the same institute has resulted in an inbreeding which does not give any research exposure.
CU is an excellent business model, more the students more are the profit. So if you are a parent and your child is in +2, someday, you will receive a call saying Sir, only one seat is left in computer science and if you come in next 15 minutes, you will get one. You would believe that only one seat is left and I should hurry up now (This is how there calling cell manipulates the parents). In actual, there is no check over how many fixed seats do their branches have and no government body ever inspects this.
Moreover they take any tom dick and harry into any course, in B.Tech they take students with just 40% marks in 10+2 and same in MBA.
Maximum students are from the North region of India, many belong to rural areas of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal. Many of the students are unprofessional who are there to enjoy campus life.
Some brilliant students who get lured by all the fake false promises of CU don’t get opportunities they just spoil their money and careers.
A disheartened student writing because I suffered a lot at the hands of this fraud university.
