Ques. How is an MTech in communication engineering at NIT Trichy?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 02 Sept 21

Ans. NIT Trichy has great placements for branches like CSE and ECE. Most of the recruiting companies give preference to B.Tech students rather than M.Tech. But as far as Communications Engineering is concerned, you will be allowed to appear for placement drives held by semiconductor companies with B.Tech students.  There are quite a few companies that prefer Communications students over VLSI. Many students end up being placed in dream semiconductor companies. Out of say, 35 students, only 1 or 2 are not placed. The placements are definitely improving over the years. It is advisable to have basic coding knowledge at least along with your core subject. That way, you will definitely be able to do well.Read more

Companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Oracle, IBM, etc visit the IIT Bhubaneswar campus for placement drive. Few well-known PSU named ISRO, IOCL, and ONGC were also part of the placement in 2019. Apart from the offered jobs, the final year students are offered internships with a good amount of pay. Highest CTC touched approx 39 lakhs/annum. In 2019 from the electronics and communication field almost 86% of students got a decent placement from the campus. IIT Bangalore showed remarkable progress by having 100% placement in 2019. Top recruiters were Accenture, McAfee, Tyfon, KayBus, etc. The average placement package was around 17.5 lakh/annum while the highest CTC was around 54 LPA. Eligibility:In IIT Bhubaneswar to get admission in MTech, a minimum of 60% marks are required in the Graduation level, and the cutoff score in the GATE exam (70% weightage), candidates are also required to go through a written test and interview (30% weightage). IIT Bangalore does not conduct any entrance test for the M.Tech course. The GATE result or JEE result is only considered for selection. The students are shortlisted on merit-basis. The graduation level % is also considered for the shortlisted students. Faculty:Professors of both places are quite helpful. Both the colleges maintain a high standard in selecting their faculty. Campus:The infrastructure of IIT Bhubaneswar is expanding and improving over time. The Infrastructure of IIT Bangalore is good and if we compare it to IIT Bhubaneswar, both are up to the mark.Read more
