I had an inspiring and pleasant experience at DYPU’S School of Engineering and Technology (SOET). Professors of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering with their incredible skills provided students with clear and deep knowledge. The quality and way of teaching were an inspiration to attend every class and grasp as much as we can from the faculty. We were provided with ample facilities for practical experience which helped in improving our skill set. The faculty is very supportive and they make sure that you become not just an engineer but a socially aware engineer. I thank SOETfor guiding me towards the right direction and recommend it to all post graduates looking for a career in VLSI and Embedded Systems."

Being a part of the DYPU Ambi Pune family is truly a dream come true! The past two years of college was filled with exuberance and lots of memories. Department of electronics & Telecommunication Engineering is very supportive in academics, co-curricular activities like inter-college & intra-college project competition, troubleshooting competition, internships and much more. The faculty made sure we were able to apply all concepts learnt in classrooms, practically in labs and simulations. If not for the continuous support of the faculty, this feat would not have been achieved. Since the syllabus is maintained to prepare students for current trends in industry. It helped me to overcome the gap between my engineering and the needs of the industry. It is truly an honour to be DYPU alumni..!
