Ques. Which college is better for a B.Tech in CS or IT, YMCAUST, Faridabad and Deen Bandu Chotu Ram (DCRUST) Murthal?

● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 21 Oct 21

Ans. It is a tough decision to make as both colleges fall in the same tier. There are not many differences between the two. Let me share some facts about both I read online, which might help you make a decision. YMCA has a bit of an upper hand when it comes to placements than DCRUST. The location could be one of the factors and also notable IT firms participate in their placement program. YMCA also provides better technical exposure, which DCRUST lacks. The faculty of YMCA is also better, having years of educational experience. The placements of CS and IT are the best in YMCA, though the salary packages offered are less but enough companies participate which opens up a lot of opportunities for the students. Categories CS/IT at YMCAUST CS/IT at DCRUST Course Fee 1.39 lakh 2.36 lakh Placement Percentage 80% 70-80% Highest CTC 28 LPA 8.21 LPA Average CTC 12 LPA 4-5 LPA Recruiting Companies Accenture, Wipro, Cognizant, TCS, etc. Tech Mahindra, Bosch, Fidelity, Jindal Iron and Steel, etc. The only thing you should know, be it any college YMCA or DCRUST, you should not depend blindly on their curriculum. Learning new things will require dedication and effort on your end. So work on yourself no matter what college you opt for.Read more

Ques. How is the placement for IT in LNCT Bhopal? What is its highest package for IT?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 28 Sept 21

Ans. Since I am a part of LNCT Group of Technologies, Bhopal, the insights I provide can be helpful for a few.  The IT sector placements, by the organization, apparently offer a variety of opportunities.  A really good amount of recruiters visit the campus, especially from the IT sector, and hire a large number of candidates.  VMware, back in 2019, offered the highest salary package of almost around INR 18 LPA and hired 4 students side by side.  The best advice to secure a position at the top companies is to put as much effort as required into brushing your skills from the scratch.  It is better to stay updated with the latest technological trends of the industry and keep up with their demands, as and when required. You should invest a reasonable amount of time into working upon aptitude, and logical reasoning, alongside keeping a good hold on your communication skills as well.  These are aspects that play a pivotal role in determining whether or not you are the best fit for a firm. It is suggested that you keep on polishing your skills more than wondering about aspects otherwise. Read more

Ques. What should I take, IT in IEM or CSE in Heritage Institute of Technology?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 27 Sept 21

Ans. In terms of college, IEM and HIT both provide similar career opportunities in the IT sector. Major recruiters like TCS, Infosys, CTS, Capgemini from the IT sector visit both the institutes.  If you had to pick between the two engineering fields, you should always go with CS. If you select CS, you will be able to apply for a variety of government/public sector positions (ISRO, BARC, IOCL) after completing your B.tech. Only CS guys are qualified to apply for the majority of these government jobs.  Parameters  IEM Heritage Institute of Technology in Kolkata Tuition fees (B.Tech) 5.88 lakhs 3.93 lakhs  Average CTC  INR 5-6 LPA INR 3.75 LPA Highest CTC  72 LPA  16 LPA  As you will get similar opportunities you can choose either. Also, outside of WB, no one cares if you're from IEM or HIT. Unless you're from JU, everything is the same.Read more

Ques. How is LNCT Bhopal for IT?

● Top Answer By Vidya Bhatt on 23 Sept 21

Ans. LNCT is considered as one of the best private colleges in Middle India that is Madhya Pradesh. The college is known for offering useful and versatile activities. Here are some things I got to know from the reviews. Although the faculty is reliable there is a certain amount of pressure given on students regarding attendance.  The environment in the campus is very competitive.  The students lay emphasis on enhancing their skills for acquiring best of placement opportunities.  Even the impossible tasks are fulfilled under the pressure of strict professors and competitive classmates. It is essential that you secure admission in the main college as there are several other colleges linked with the same name.  The environment and facilities are all the same over these colleges but the placement opportunities are better in the main campus. Categories IT at LNCT Bhopal Course Fee 4.7 lakh Highest CTC 18-19 LPA Average CTC 6-7 LPA Lowest CTC 4 LPA Recruiting Companies Wipro, Accenture, Tech Mahindra, Capgemini, etc. It is your hard work that will get you through college life but it will be worthwhile. You should opt for the college without any further hesitation.Read more
