I was highly jealous of all my friends and cousins who went out for studies as I joined one of the worst colleges in M.B.M. Engineering college. Trust me, and even my soul is crying while writing this review, but I have no choice. I would apologize to the students who will feel offended by reading my review. However, back of their mind, everyone will know that my answer is hundred percent right. The condition of government colleges in the state is already poor, and M.B.M. was no different. The lack of facilities was quite visible, and because of that, even AICTE banned the college in 2018. Due to influence from the government, the ban was lifted just in two months, but the conditions haven't changed a bit. Hats off to those who complete their degree in four years because 8 out of 10 took five or more years. One self-explanatory point is that the college plays dirty politics. The college seriously needs some elephant legs to have more space to dance.Read Full Review
