If you want a future in engineering, then RCE is the one. Many engineering students do MBA post-engineering, but RCE was the College that always taught us the value of engineers. The masters in engineering can do a hell lot as CSE has become one of the most preferred courses in the last 10 years or so. In CSE too, there are many sub-branches, and therefore our batch of 1200 was divided into 18 sections. At RCE, we always had to move up because the education for which we joined the College was always prioritized over other things. The education was lengthened, but the finishing was so good that final year was more into placements, internships, and going for industrial visits. All in all, I was the happiest at RCE after being topper in 10th during my school days. Small incidents always give you big insights and likewise, many small incidents happened at RCE. Internship provided by College was small as I was ready for a six months internship, but College said no, two months are enough. I wanted a one-month break after final semesters, but College said no; 20 days are more than enough. So, these incidents affected me, but if I had sat myself at the protest stations because of that, I wouldn't have been where I am today.
If there's a thing for which you can have a big laugh about, then that is the academics of RCE. Classes were many times comical, as the classes here didn't mean that portions had to be completed at all costs. Many times, even the management and HOD criticized the faculties for not being the kind of people who they should be. They meant being strict and not being over-friendly with the students. Luckily, they ignored all that and gave us enough liberty to study the way we wanted, and that is why academics made us excel at RCE.
Faculties were one of the people who know how to handle students and bring the best out of them. Studies are not instinctive as one has to plan and prepare, rather than say that oh, I should do it this way and then end up doing what is not required. Nature of the beast says some days will be yours and some days won't be yours, but studies are non on some days. Every day we were made to go under the pump as the faculties took lab sessions for at least three days a week. They had all the bombs in their arsenal, as love and care were the outer guard of those bombs, but inside it was an explosion. As long as we did things right, the box never opened and those who made them opened didn't ask what happened to them.
For all those who have done their homework on placements have easily got the placements from RCE. An optional training session for a month was organized for placements, and even though it was optional, 80 percent of the students did that. I mean, who doesn't need placements, so it was optional in a way, but compulsory for us who needed a good job badly. Infosys, TCS, Adobe, Coforge, and many other big names took a small interview and within a month we saw our names with the job offer on the notice board. Average placements were quite less, and that was one of the reasons many students indeed denied the placements. A trainee role with an offer of 3-4 lakhs per annum didn't look like any exciting prospect. Some students nailed it with packages worth 10 lakhs, 20 lakhs, but they were a few.
Just one girls hostel named 'P L Bhawan' was there inside the campus. They were next to two boy's hostels, as in all there were three hostels at the campus. Many students were outsiders and hostels were indeed not capable of giving seats to them all. So, hostel facilities need an expansion, as otherwise, the hostels were fine and also the meals provided were great.
The area which I used the most was the College library. There were two actually, as one small and one central library was there at the campus. Apart from books, the library has also added magazines and journals to its arsenal. There was a PNB bank ATM inside the campus and we used to stand in queues as in our days only cash was the way to make any purchases at the campus. There are two auditoriums, one open and one closed auditorium, which is fully air-conditioned. Then there were sports grounds which girls hardly used as boys had more of a say at the grounds at least.
Campus life here was like a football match where some days my formations will work while on some days it won't. One can't expect a bed of roses at RCE as education was tough and strict. Students who didn't have attendance were not allowed to participate in the College events. The uniform was compulsory and that looked a bit of a pain though. Life at RCE was up to scratch.

'RCOE' is quite an impressive College. For students who are from Roorkee, there are two of the best Engineering Colleges present. IIT Roorkee is of course the most sought after and after that it's RCOE. Both the Colleges are similar in a lot of ways as the education pattern, the semester exam timings, and more or less the syllabus are entirely the same. We were taught from the leaf taken out of their syllabus as RCOE management left no stone unturned in making sure that students here get as much... Read Full Review
Engineering is a floating course as in the 1st year, we have to study everything and then come to our specialized course. The first year was huge fun and then the disappointing part as we had to part ways with a lot of our friends. Well, the College though, goes on as College is not about old friends as you get another hand soon after one flies. However, there was someone who never left our hands and they were the faculties of RCE. RCE College Roorkee on the whole gave us flexibility of studying... Read Full Review
'RCOE' may not show up in stats as one of the Top Engineering Colleges, but ask the people of Uttarakhand and they will have their views. RCOE is one of the best Engineering Colleges in the state as placement-wise, they have done exceptionally well. RCOE with 75%+ placement records for our branch and getting the course done well before time shows the impact that the College has. At this point, the two impact Engineering Colleges of Uttarakhand barring IIT Roorkee are 'GB Pant Nagar University' a... Read Full Review
The biggest force of RCOE is education as for four years in a row we had a little extra from the previous years. Student intake has increased in a few years and therefore placements have become challenging here, but RCOE is on track for it. We all need a good luck charm every now and then, don't we, and RCOE was that good luck charm for me. As a student, things got working for us as we left the College on the back of some quality education that has helped immensely during PG course. If the wave ... Read Full Review
Roorkee College of Engineering doesn't provide engineering courses, but many other courses too. I did a BBA from there in the 2014-17 batch and while all the facilities remain the same, placements dip a lot. RCOE has a dress code and it has to be followed because barring Saturday, we are not allowed to wear a civil uniform. The College admission process for BBA is simple as one becomes eligible if they have scored 50% or more in their 12th exams. No entrance for BBA and still the intake is low a... Read Full Review
