'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 as the students of IIT Roorkee get. For me, RCOE is a long-term candidate because the College has started showing signs of progress recently. Almost all the Top IT Companies like Microsoft, Google, Adobe, and Amazon have started coming to RCOE and we were trained and prepared to crack jobs in such companies. Many students did and I got placed through RCOE and have no regrets in saying that it was RCOE that has helped us with many green shoots that it has to offer.
On the evidence of what I have seen in academics, every year, the College has progressed with its system. Some years it went slow, while on some it went too fast. Things moved up and down, but what was fixed was the academics at RCOE. Any College or University can't fire constantly, but whatever RCOE has, they have ensured that the maximum fire they have is invested in academics. In the shopping list of RCOE, they have hunted for some of the best faculties, as they are the ones who can get academics going. Overall, academics need an entire show of their own because explaining everything in detail is not possible. So, in short, the academics at RCOE are as fixed as anything, and there's no scope for any changes that are required at RCOE.
If not faculties the education here has been dismal. I am saying so because facilities here are less. Also, the exposure that we get after the management trying their best is a little below par, and to cover all the dismal parts there are faculties of RCOE who have done tremendously well in covering up things. Practicals happen almost every alternate day. Even if someone needs the same practical sessions to go on for a while, the faculty has hardly denied it. So, the faculties are in a true sense the backbone of RCOE.
I have already mentioned the companies that have visited the RCOE campus. The placements were much better in our year than the previous two years as I saw them live, and I knew that it will only scale when our time comes. Students become eligible for placements here from the 7th semester as we can give interviews from there on. Fair opportunities are provided to all and complaints will always be there; but in my books, the College has done its bit. I am not saying this because I got placed, but overall placements were over 70% and that's a great achievement for any College or University.
Not just academics, but even the hostel pattern of RCOE is copied from IITs. In IITs, every hostel is called 'Bhawan' and at RCOE too. The two boys' hostels were called 'KD' and 'ML Bhawan'. Both the hostels looked good to me, but because I didn't stay at the hostel, commenting on the facilities won't be fair on my part. I hardly care though, because having hostels is important as the College is on Haridwar Road and there are no PGs around. They are at a distance and commuting can be an issue. However, the hostels were not sufficient because the seats have been increased for CSE, but the hostels aren't.
There are too many questions regarding Infrastructure because the campus is big but still lacks some of the facilities. Firstly, the classrooms didn't have ACs, but the canteen did. It should be either way round as we used to spend more time in classrooms. They started getting installed and the open lecture theater did have it, but couldn't reach the classrooms till I was there. In terms of sporting facilities, the outdoor facilities are unquestionable, but in the scorching heat of Roorkee, we needed great indoor sporting facilities which were lacking. So, hot and cold or sweet and sour is how I can sum up the Infrastructure of RCOE.
The College's best strength is its academics, so campus life will feel a little low to those who had other plans in their mind. The College was not short of activities, but they haven't copied this part with IIT; otherwise, campus life too would have been the best. The annual fest and all saw a good crowd as students who didn't even participate made sure they were at least present to witness the events. Not just the annual fest, but even the summer fest where international DJs were called was also one of the best moments that I had at RCOE.

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
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 al...
