I have got through HCU as well as ambedkar and I am hell confused about which college is better in terms of curriculum, faculty, non academic benefits (societies, best lectures etc) and atmosphere for civils! Please if there are seniors, guide me!
For civils, I would say Ambedkar. Amedkar has a great faculty! Only negative thing about AUD is that there is no placements. Other than that, amedkar is better than HCU in terms of both faculty and exposure. If you have any doubts, check there faculty and compare.
A number of guest lecturers, mostly JNU. A good, responsive faculty. A very good macro prof - I really don't know how it's done at other places, but this guy does: most of Romer till DSGE, a large part of Gali, and a few other financial papers - and he does it really well. The teachers doing the humanities/ Marx type courses are quite good. And you can take credit courses from socio, history and english (if you choose to.) Econometrics is weak, apparently. Lib has a decent collection of advanced books. Campus is nice.
