• My child has completed 10th grade. Should he join Diploma Engineering or should he go to High School? Open or Close

    If you feel that your child and you are convinced about taking up Degree engineering in future, the best way would be taking up a Diploma program because high school education does not acquaint students with detailed aspects of a particular engineering branch.

    For e.g. if your child wants to become a Mechanical Engineer in the future, he should start with a diploma in Mechanical Engineering and thereafter he can take admission in Degree Engineering. Also, it is now possible that your child can pursue Diploma Engineering in Gujarati language.

    While offering admission, we prefer our Diploma students. So, you may not worry whether your child will get admission to degree or not, provided his performance is satisfactory in Diploma Engineering. And also, even if he completes only Diploma Engineering, there are many career options for him.

  • Which College is the BEST? Based on which Criteria should we choose any College? Open or Close

    There are some criteria based on which a college may be chosen:

    (i) Discount – If any college gives a discount, then that college shall not be chosen. Because they may be compromising on satisfaction of employees by cutting off. At Saffrony, we do not provide a discount, but we give but scholarships for scholastic students with criteria that ensure that s/he remains a scholar throughout engineering.

    (ii) Attendance – If college requires more than 75% attendance, then that college shall be considered. If any college says that it’s okay even if students do not come to the college then that college shall not be chosen.

    The reason being if the college is asking for 75% attendance, they must teach regularly and also engineering is something that needs to be taught by a live person who can make out where students need more help and who can solve doubts instantly which will be missing if students study at home or by themselves.

    (iii) Placement – Ask how much percentage of placement the college has achieved. And then ask for offer letters of students.

    Saffrony students’ placements can be viewed here.

    (iv) Faculty members – Ask for the qualification of faculty members and if there are Masters qualified faculty members for B.E students and if there a members who are pursuing PhD, then that college may be considered. We, at our institute have all the Masters qualified faculty members for B.E / Degree Engineering and B.E/Masters qualified faculty members for Diploma Engineering. There are a lot of faculty members (20) who are pursuing PhD and also few have already finished their Ph.D.
