  • The University is located in Asia particularly on India. It is one of the best place to study most of Engineering faculties. Located in cool place for good studying and it is also out of the city because in the city you may not study well. It has many faculties and hostels and the cost of the accommodation is also cheap. There are hostels for Indian men, Indian girls, and African students. It has lots of staff and students with many structures. There are many fields such as sports sciences, which has huge ground to play various sports like cricket, football, basketball and others. Just go and explore it.
