Like all private colleges in Punjab region Chandigarh University too has a poor record. ABES Engineering college comes ahead as it is situated in NCR, a region with many industries, NAAC and NBA certification, participation in various national and international competitions and placements too. The environment of ABES is also better than CU. Now talking about the placements, ABES is way ahead of CU as many companies(including international companies too) visit every year for recruitment. So my choice will be ABES as compaired to CU.
All the best!!
Placements can be checked by meeting old students. The credibility and affiliation can be confirmed through the AICTE website. There is no way to judge the capability of faculty but try to get a real time review by talking to various previous year pass outs and number of toppers.
