Not many of our parents still believe that not just for sons, but engineering has also been made for their girls. Sadly, you can find many shows and series portraying boys’ lives in engineering colleges, but only one or two of them show girls’ lives too. This makes this series one of its kind. Engineering Girls is a series based on college life which mainly shows the lives of 3 girls, their struggles in getting acknowledged in college, struggling with engineering pressure, and taking part at college fests.
We all know the most fun part of the college is its fest which we are missing the most in these times, and let’s face it – virtual fests are nothing compared to the real deal. So watch this to remember your happy days in college. Also, Sejal Kumar and Barkha Singh have done pretty good jobs.
This series based on college life, a documentary, has perfectly given justice to the lives of IIT students. As this is a documentary, it is much more relatable to watch students narrating their lives on camera. The serene campus and the sad truths regarding IIT is an eye-opener for many. Also, a lot of myths related to IIT have been busted here. So, if you are an engineering student and did not have an opportunity to live a campus and hostel life, this series is for you. Also, if you have passed IIT and are missing your good old IIT life, do give this a watch. This will make you completely nostalgic.
The best part of these series based on college Life mentioned above is that except for Alma Matters, all the series are free of cost, and you can watch without spending extra bucks.
