8.0 /10

Placement Experience :

Approximately 95% percent of the students get placed. The remaining 5% are those who were not eligible (DASA candidates or having numerous backlogs). The highest salary offered was 27 LPA from amazon, the average is around 12-13 LPA and the lowest was 6 LPA, I guess. The top recruiters in our campus are Amazon, GE, Samsung R&D. Mostly the companies hire for the role of SDE (Software Development Engineer). The internship season is not over yet but some of the students got internship in Amazon, GE, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs.

Campus Life :

All the old buildings are almost renovated and there's also new Academic Building which is going to be inaugurated in January 2020. The facilities are much better as compared to other colleges in terms of labs, library and classrooms. Hostel facilities are also quite decent. You'll get single seater rooms in the mega hostel which are not even provided by some IITs. Mess food is also better when compared to other colleges of the same stature.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The teachers not very helpful but you can manage things on your own using YouTube and other sources. The curriculum of the course is much relevant to the industry work especially in the software field. The knowledge of the courses offered here will help you in all the industry related works.

Even a student was offered a salary package of 16 LPA, by non-core company. The lowest salary package offered was 3.6 LPA, and the average salary package offered was around 8 LPA. Many people get internships in Tata Steel, Tata Motors and other small scale companies that surround the college. The top roles offered are of manager, scientists and software engineer.

Campus Life :

From the second year, you will get a single room for boys and for girls you will still have to share with one other girl. Wi-Fi and library facilities are good. Labs are newly renovated this year, and you will get a new classroom. Food quality is best in all of the NITs. Canteen is pretty good, and medical facilities are average, but we have ambulance service 24x7. The only disappointing this is the sports and game facility on campus.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The teachers are helpful, highly qualified and knowledgeable but you will have to focus on studies, and you will ask if you don't understand they will not spoon feed like private schools teaching quality is also good. The curriculum is good for GATE preparation, and it will also make you industry-ready.
