NO. There wil not be refund whatsoever in any case. First four classes of the course are free. Thereafter you should pay the course fee.
Will i get my fee back in case i drop out of the course ?
CSEPracticals conduct all its classes online on skype or equivalent conferences. Classes will be 1-2 hour duration. We dont accommodate more than 15 students per conference session to help make the session interactive and productive.
How does CSEPracticals Class work?
We encourage you to not to miss the class. However, in case you miss, You can get the missed class recording on request. Need not worry.
What if i miss the class ?
Will i really get the job after doing these relevant courses ?
CSEPracticals mission is to arm students with the required tool, knowledge and skill set to help them compete in the open market of IT industry and fetch a good job as per the caliber. Confidence is directly proportional to knowledge, more knowledgeable you are, more confident you shall be. CSEPracticals works towards building technical strength of students which help them shape a bright future ahead. CSEPracticals never announce or claim that you would definitely get the job after completing all courses. CSEPracticals is not bogus like other educational sites/coaching centers. CSEPracticals proudly announces that successful completion of its courses would make you one of the most toughest competitor against your equivalent Tier-1 passout equivalent. CSEPracticals is the joint effort of IIT alumnus working in giant MNCs in India. You will be getting all the opportunities to learn by doing challenging projects which otherwise would not have availed through the college decades old and outdated curriculum and incompetent faculties.
This Question is objective. Depends on Topic complexity and students ability to learn fast, amount of hours to be invested per week may vary from 6-10 hours.
How much time i will have to dedicate per week to complete the assignments ?
Certainly yes. As far as core engineering concepts are concerend we shall be covering them all. However PSU exams cover the entire syllabus of 4 year engineering curriculum which we will not be covering. Hence, student is expeted to cover the parts of the curriculum on his own which are of no importance for private IT sector exams, but important for PSU sector exams. Such topics are purely theoritical and one honest reading of the book/topic is suffice.
Will these courses help me prepare govt job ?
Can i get the job in Google/Microsoft etc after completing engineering in CSE/IT discipline from not so well known private engineering college ?
Yes, why not. Even in a survey, it has been found that alumni of private engineering institutions are performing better than the government institutions. As far as Google/Microsoft and other software giants are concerned, it may not prefer youl like an IITian but alike companies are open for everyone as long as your CV has the potential to impress them and call you for written and interview. They just need your skills. That's enough. Ofcourse you need to match their standard. There have beenmany examples set by graduates from pricate ordinary engineering college who have been managed to crack the tough interview process of these MNCs.
08 / How can CSE/IT OR non-CSE graduate from tier-2/tier-3 engineering college apply for off campus placements in the tech giants like Google/Microsoft/Facebook/Intel/Cisco/Amazon etc ?
Amazon, Flipkart, Google, Microsoft are the some of the tech-giants presently in world. The role for which they hire college graduates is Software Developement Engineer (SDE).
Following are the pointers you must keep in mind of before applying for such companies:
They Don't Care which college you are from. Do some really challenging projects that involves high level of problem-solving. Eg : Data Mining, Text mining, Predictive Modelling, Machine Learning. Develop web-development skills technologies such as HTML5,CSS3, Bootstrap , JS, AngularJS, Django Framework, PHP, Perl, Python etc. (Note that these are very advanced courses and are taught only in IITs. you should be very proficient in basics before opting for these courses. If you are interested in any such courses to do, csepracticals shall arrange the tutor for the same on demand). Master Data Structures and Competitive Coding skills through websites like GeeksforGeeks- Page on geeksforgeeks.org, CodeChef- Programming Competition, Hackerrank- HackerRank.
Another questions that might popup would be "So if I have followed the above pointers, what would be my next step? "
Ideally you must wait for such compaies to visit your college. But in cases they do not visit- Don't Panic ! You always have a solution, which is covered in the following pointers.
Get contact of people who are working in such companies. These people need not necessarily be your college seniors or next-door neighbors. So how do I get such contacts and ask for referrals ? Maintain a neat and up-to-date LinkedIn Profile (pls do take linked in seriously). Connect to people (Give priority to people you know) across the industry through your first degree contacts. Once connected, send people messages asking them if they would be interestedto refer you in case of openings. You may or may not get a reply. Nevertheless,Keep Trying. Meanwhile have a very good, crisp and an effective Resume ready in hand.You get someone ready to refer you, forward your resume and an interview is setup. Cracking the interview depends on how well you have mastered the above points. IF you are a good match for the company, you will be recruited and voila - YOU ARE INTO AMAZON/FLIPKART/GOOGLE/MICROSOFT/"YOUR DREAM COMPANY".
09 / Is CSEPracticals going too aggressive in defaming the tier 3 engineering colleges in the country ?
Well, we shall not defend ourself on this. Please do your own research.

10 / What is the fate of average Engineering graduate of a tier 3 or 4 Indian colleges ?
First, lets look at those students, who have had a decent academic profile until 10th grade, who actually study during their 11th and 12th grade but still couldn't make it into Ivy colleges and happily rolled into the Tier 3/Tier 4 colleges.
1. They try their best to keep up their "decent" profile by studying diligently for the University exams.
2. They score 75%+ or 65%+ or 85%+ (Notice I gave three scores. This score is COMPLETELY dependent on the University the college falls under. You cannot determine anything about the student from his score unless you know what university he is from. Scary sad. The only Rule Of Thumb is that the student doesn't study if he fails (duh!))
3. They reach their Final Year and get placed in SWITCH companies (Satyam, Wipro, Infosys, TCS, Cognizant, HCL). These companies, if you don't know, are just glorified call centers. The job is both underpaid and overpaid. Underpaid because it's ridiculously low and overpaid because the "resources" (employees) rarely do anything worthwhile.
4. In such a job, it doesn't matter how smart or good at programming you are, you won't ever stand out from the herd because the jobs themselves are so trivial. Many times, simply "copy-paste". If they keep this job, their brain starts dying.
5. 3-4 years later, if they still remain in the company, they start getting noticed. This is when their actual career journey starts. But many leave this hell hole for MS, MBA, startups, whatever.
Nevertheless, Dont lose hope. You can be successful but remember entering a 'worst engineering college' is as good as sitting at home, purchasing good books and learning the subject yourself. The kind of engineering college you are mentioning provide absolutely no engineering education whatsoever. Only what they provide is a piece of paper which makes you 'eligible' to apply for jobs. CVs from XYZ colleges land straight into the dustbin 99% of times when there are enough Tier-1 CVs to choose from to satisfy the requirement. If you want engineering education you should not compromise on standard of college. Do it and you'd regret 4 years later. If you want to launch start-ups why do you want to go for engineering? You seem very confused. If it is for company of like minded people then too you are more likely to find these people either in IITs or among people who are so sure of themselves that they don't touch degree education than the crowd at XYZ colleges.
There are large number of websites running courses online for CSE graduate students, and its your wish to join any of them. Coursera.org is the most popular one in the domain of imparting online knowledge and computer science skills. However, we would like to point out that more than 80% of courses on these websites are for working professional who want to enhance their knowledge and skillset in a particular domain of work which they are currently working in. Such courses are of very less importance for ongoing graduate students, since, while pursuing graduation, it is not determined which area of work they shall be working in corporate. You will be interviewed based on what you have studied in graduation course, and not which area you specialized in. Companies dont expect specialization from freshers in a particular field. Secondly, as a pas out graduate, seeking job is the priority rather than seeking job in a particual domain as it sharply narrows down your area of job search. For example, professional working in the area of cloud computing should do Cloud computing related courses from Coursera or alike sites. CsePracticals on the other hand, is designed, to guide the ongoing graduate students through their graduation course with advance level concepts and practice and sharpening their skills to crack the technical interview. CSEPracticals syllabus is the more decorated reflection of CSE engineering syllabus. Its generic, and you will be interviews based on basic generic computer science skills and not specialized skills in paticular area, unless you appear for interview for that particular work area only.
11 / Why should i join CSEPracticals when i can do courses from Coursera.org or alike ?
No, there is as such no "Statement of Accomplishment" certification award even if you complete all your courses. Infact, online sites like Coursera.org has also ceased awarding the "Statement of Accomplishment" certification now. It is advice for students, that certification may decorate your CV and help in fetch you written exam/interview calls, but at the end of day, you shall be hired only after you have demonstrated your knowledge and skills in interview and convinced the interviewer that you fit for the position. Again, we are dicussing in the context of core computer science jobs, and not labor jobs in mass recruiter companies like infosys etc.
12 / Shall be i awarded "Statement of Accomplishment" from CSEPracticals ?
13 / I dont like coding, and i am doing engineering in CSE or related from Tier-2/3 engineering college from jhumri talaiyaa. Dont i have any scope after engineering ?
Ans : Answer to your Question is here
14 / Do online courses offer credibility like distance programs or traditional full-time courses do? Where can a good online course (CSc.) be done from?
There are various certification courses online which adds genuine credibility to your CV, such courses include well known certifications such as CCNA, Oracle, Sun, Microsoft etc. These certificates immediate;y demonstrates to recruiters that not only you are enthusiasm to build your career and motivated to learn, but also you are hard worker and has a zeal to learn. These well known certifications are well recognized in the IT industry and increase your chances to fetch interview calls from giant MNCs.
The second part, pls note that these certification may help you fetch written/interview calls from Core IT companies, but unless you demonstrates your knowledge, basics and problem solving skills, recruiter is under no compulsion to have you on board just because you have done these certifications. Doing certifications are no big deal.
In Nutshell, take these certification courses as just another feather, but, at the end of the day, how much technical you are decides your fate. To fetch 8+ lpa package as a start package, you will be drilled to the core of technical to evaluate your suitability for the position. So, do not overvalue these certifications.
Other type of online courses are those which aims towards only and only sharpen and enhance your technical skills, they do not award any certificate, even if they do, they are not recognized in the IT industry unless done from few well known sites like Coursera - Free Online Courses From Top Universities | Coursera etc. Just because they do not offer any certificates, do not under value them. As i said, end of the day, its the amount of knowledge you carry in your bag that counts. You can, with all proud, mention in your CV any iota of relevant courses you have done online or otherwise, as long as you justify the mention in your CV through your understanding and grip on the topic. It shall be backfire on you if you mention anything in your CV which you are not confident at answering in interviews despite you carry its certification in your pocket.
15 / I am passed out fresh engineering graduate, and i am planing to visit Bangalore in search of jobs. Any guidance ?
Well, Thouands of Students visit bangalore in july after completing their graduation in search of job, and they end up in joining random consultancies and fall victim of the chain of money sucking entities like street coachings/consulatancies fake companies etc. We shall recommend to closely follow the facebook page : / for proper guidance and protect yourself from falling pray of such hoax entities which are scattered all across the bangalore. This community is working effortlessely and selflessely to guide Bangalore Job Seekers. Again, we emphasis there is no shortcut to success. No Skills, No job. It is a pure give and take business, you have to sell your skills.
16 / Are students at IIT/NITs/BITs and well known TIER-1 colleges are extremely brilliant and i don't have a chance to compete with them or earn like them in IT as i belong to Tier-n college ?
The one thing that people fail to realize in our country is that as far as the point of view of the public is concerned, anything other than an IIT, a NIT, or BITS, is bad. Give or take 3-4 more colleges.
That's just because these college stand for their popularity more than what people do over there. I assure you, only about 10-15% of the people in those colleges think about the way you are thinking right now, about being passionate for stuff, technology, social empowerment and many more causes. Others are just the same as there would be in any other college. It's just that they get the brand advantage that other colleges don't when things like placement, packages and other shit pertaining to jobs is talked about.
Just remember, there has to be a time when you have to struggle. For some people it comes early, for some it comes a bit late. Even a person born with a silver spoon in his/her hand soon realizes that things are not what they seem to be. You thinking about a start-up and finding people who are just as passionate as you has to happen in any college, if you have the will for it. Every time you look at something that interests you, you won't be able to stop yourself from delving deeper. You would get the feeling that I really need to have a complete and comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter.
For you the time to work hard and struggle is now. By struggle I mean to say build up the path for going where you want to go. It takes time. May be your IIT counterparts may get things going easy for them initially, but at the end, there's only one thing that pays off, dedication.
Also remember that you need to work everyday. Whether it's two hours or twenty hours, you need to devote time to what you truly feel like doing. Don't think of where people have reached in their lives. Be concerned with your life, and be patient. I'm sure you'll never think anything about the fact that your college is good or bad, or may be the fact that others are getting more than they deserve and you are getting less. Earn your position in this world. Because being worthy of something is always unquestionable.
