This question was an open – ended question. We chalked out the most frequent answers and categorized them into Knowledge, Programming, Internet/Chat and Entertainment. According to the Graph above 42% students use the computer to gain knowledge and use it for productive purposes. 22% students use the computer for learning programming languages, keeping in mind that there are around 56% students of CS & IT in our college. 14% students use the computer specifically for surfing internet, for chatting. 22% students use computer only and only for watching movies, listening songs, for gaming and for other entertainment purposes. This figure is equal to the students using computer to learn programming languages. Page 9 of 40

The Graph above explains that 40% of the students have an internet connection at their home/room. The bigger figure; 60% of the students don’t have an internet connection. This clearly shows that 60% of the students are dependent on the internet facilities provided by the college in the computer labs.

The situation demands for better internet facility in the labs, moreover, internet facility in all computer labs with better bandwidth i.e. higher internet speed.

Can’t say

This question was aimed at knowing the awareness about the most basic computer software package Microsoft Office. The Survey tells us that 83% students don’t know that the latest version of MS Office is 2007. 17% gave the correct answer i.e. MS Office 2007. 14 % said MS Office XP. 60% students said that latest one is MS Office Vista, but actually MS Office Vista doesn’t even exist.

This clearly proves that 83% students have not even used MS Office properly, which is the most basic computer software, keeping in mind that MS Office is a part of syllabus for first semester students. Page 12 of 40

According to the Graph 64% of the students have an email ID. But, 36% do not have an email ID, which is quite a bigger figure. The Etcetera had tried to conduct seminars on basic internet knowledge and on how to create an email ID a few months back, but the permission for the seminars was not granted by the then Principal.

Q.4 and Q.6 clearly explain the worrying situation of the students with around 57% students not using internet regularly to remain updated and 36% students not even having an email ID.

Reasons for 34% not using it can vary from non availability of internet facility to no awareness. We can clearly state that 16% don’t know what a search engine is and how to use it.

Concluding figure says that 50 % students do not use search engines to accompany their regular textbooks and are not updated with the latest things about the subjects they are studying, which is quite alarming.

In the previous question, the statistics said that 69% of students are not the locals of the city; they do not live with their families. Therefore, they are dependent on the college canteen in the college hours. 52% students are not satisfied with the college canteen; they say that it does not provide adequate food and other basic facilities like clean drinking water. Only 8% are satisfied with the canteen. 27% students which majorly comprises of the locals of the city, bring their own food. 8% very happily agreed that they are dependent on the lunch boxes of their local friends.

The result clearly explains why students leave the college premises for lunch at the adjoining dhaba, in the recess.

The college has a facility of Book Bank, which provides books for all the subjects to the students. Still, 36% students buy books from the market. Only 19% use textbooks provided by the library. 30% say that they use SHIVANI question bank to study, which is the next higher figure to regular books from the market. Only 15% students use the class notes.

The reason of students buying books from the market in spite of having a book bank, amounts to: • Book Bank not updated at the start of every semester. • Not enough reference books in the library.

28. What sorts of more facilities should the college provide; any other comments; suggestions / preferences. This was an open-ended question. The students filled the spaces given with great enthusiasm, wrote all that they wanted to share with the college administration and management. They wrote even the smallest things. We have compiled a few major comments and suggestions. They are as follows: • Please appoint a good principal from technical side. • The college should have an official website, and show the performance of all the students on the website. College should provide email ID to all students. (We would like to mention that The Etcetera had submitted a proposal for the development of the college website by us.) • The rules and regulations should be strict. • Office staff should be cooperating in nature. • Some tech fest or events like tech fest of DAVV should be organized. • Saturday should be off. • Management and administration should maintain healthy relationship with students. • The gate of new building should not be locked, as there can be any accident there, moreover, who has to study will study. • There should be proper drinking water facility. • A good garden should be developed and college campus should be made attractive. • Library should provide good books and journals. • Internet facility should be available in the new building and should be good. • Book Bank, Canteen and sports facility should be improved. • Some measures should be taken so that labs are held properly. • There should be dustbins on every floor as well as in the washrooms. • Provide mirror in each washroom. • Electrical connections should be checked regularly. • Efforts should be made to develop soft skills in students. • Technical tours should be conducted. • Syllabus should be completed. • There should be a notice board on every floor. Page 36 of 40


• Effort should be made to keep the college campus clean. • Please attach the result of this survey on the notice board. • Comments and suggestions are given to those who are going to take some action. • I enjoyed answering the questions of the survey. • Thank you ETC for this survey. This will try to improve our college in a number of better ways. • ETC should conduct more surveys like this.
