Pune Institute of Computer Technology,PICT gate

The security guards at the Pune Institute of Computer Technology,PICT gate have one simple rule: If you wanna enter the campus show us your ID card.
  • No matter who you are, a staff member, a student, an alumni, or bade ghar ka bigda hua aulad, it just doesn’t matter at all. You HAVE to show the ID card! I wonder what treasure are they trying to protect!
  • And another funny thing about the PICT gate is that there is only 1 gate for the entire campus and its located too deep off the the right side of the road.
  • If you’re going there for first time, trust me, you’ll go right past it and still won’t find the gate!

I like the environment of classroom very much. The desks and chairs are well designed taking good care of the postures of the students. All the classrooms have Internet connections, a Computer, a Projector, an OHP and a geen-board. Teachers make the session lively using the presentation or by the traditional chalkboard methods. Sometimes the sessions are conducted by the teachers and sometimes by the students too.

Talking about the Labs of our college. It really feels like you are working in a company for some projects while doing assignments in labs. All the computers in the labs are all equipped with latest softwares. The Operating system mainly used for teaching purpose, is Linux (Fedora).

The libraries are full of knowledgeable books both for reference and research purposes. There is a big reading hall for the students to study. It also has a Digital Library for the students to research. It has a Group study room for students who can discuss their concepts and clear their doubts with the help of teachers.
