Ans.An M.Tech in Polymer Science from CUSAT is a good option if you are planning your master’s and doctoral programs. It can offer you the hands-on experience of your subject. But the chances for the placements for the MTech student are very less from CUSAT. As most of the companies prefer BTech students rather than the students who completed their master’s degree i.e. MTech.
M.Tech students do not get enough placement opportunities. If you go through the past placement records, you will see that only one or two companies allow MTech students. Although, in 2020, MRF tires have invited only MTech students for the 2021 placements.
The industry also starting to recruit more M.Tech students as most BTech students after doing the job for almost two years pursue higher studies that in turn is a great loss to the company as the company spends long hours teaching them various skills to give their project a successful ending. So most of the companies are preferring students who have completed an MTech degree and are ready to work for their professional career only. This is a very big advantage to all the students pursuing MTech polymer sciences from CUSAT.
You may know that in M.Tech the second year is project-based both in college as well as in the company you are pursuing your internship. If you can even show your efficiency, you may get recruited by the company, once you complete your master's degree.
So, securing a decent job offer depends a lot on your skills and efficiency.Read more
Ans.I have friends who pursued both IT and Mechanical from CUSAT and as per their experiences, both are equally good. Firstly, you need to understand what your pool of interest is. However, if you are open to both the courses without any specific choice, here are some insights for both the branches:
IT at CUSAT:
You can get better job opportunities in the IT field according to the placement stats of CUSAT, which is pretty common in most engineering colleges of India.
If you choose IT, keep yourselves updated with IT through MOOCs or even paid diploma courses which will really help you in the future.
Mechanical at CUSAT:
Mechanical engineering consists of a whole gamut of software unlike IT which needs you to develop that particular software being.
Here, mechanical will be super useful as leverage.
At CUSAT, placement statistics for mechanical are also good but not better than IT.
IT at CUSAT
Mechanical at CUSAT
46,600 (1st year)
46,600 (1st year)
Wipro, Infosys, Capgemini, Oracle, etc.
Vedanta, Daikin, ONGC, IOCL, etc.
All in all, you need to choose the field according to your interest as these will be the career-building years. Nonetheless, if you are open to any field, IT is the best option.Read more
Ques. What can I do after doing an integrated M.Sc in photonics at CUSAT?
● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 20 Jul 21
Ans.There are two options that you can pursue after an integrated M.Sc in photonics at CUSAT.
Industry Jobs - The jobs offered by the photonics industry of India are mostly sales. Yes, there are jobs in the telecommunications industry especially in the fiber optics sector which could fetch you some very good technical roles as well.
Research - Photonics is one of the very interesting topics to research upon. The field offers some very good opportunities in India as well as abroad. However, very few educational institutions in India have a photonics department and they also prefer physics students when they hire their professors. So getting a teaching job may also become difficult.
Anyway, if you are really interested in the subject then nothing should come between your choice because opportunities will appear over time.Read more
Ques. Which would be comparatively better for an M. Tech: CUSAT, Cochin or Amrita University, Coimbatore?
● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 29 Sept 20
Ans.Amrita University has ranked 4th among the top engineering colleges by NIRF in 2020. Cochin University of Science and Technology has ranked 89th among the top engineering colleges by NIRF in 2020 and has been marked as an ‘A’ graded institution by NAAC.
Both these universities have several advantages and each one of them has evolved in their own ways over the years. Both of them offer good facilities to their students, which is why it can get difficult to choose either one of them. However, in order to get over the dilemma about which one would be perfect for you, go through these points which will eventually help you make the final call.
Amrita university- It offers MTech courses in various specializations, such as Cyber Security, Automotive Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, etc.
Admission to the MTech program is through GATE. For non-GATE qualified candidates, the selection is based on past academic records and personal interviews conducted by the University.
Students applying for admission to MTech programs should have passed with a minimum of 60% aggregate in BE/BTech/MSc in relevant engineering disciplines.
The course fee for MTech at Amrita University is 3.57 lakhs.
Cochin University of Science and Technology- It offers full-time and per-time MTech courses in various specializations.
Students should have BE/BTech/BSc degree with 60% aggregate from any recognized university.
The selection of the programs is through GATE/DAT/JNU Entrance Test.
The total course fee for CUSAT is INR 34,675.
Some of the top recruiters of the Amrita University students are Amazon, Google, TCS, CTS, Microsoft, and more.
The highest salary package remains around 30 LPA and the lowest one is 3 LPA-5 LPA.
The top recruiters who offer placements to the CUSAT students are HCL, IBM, IBS, ORACLE, MAHINDRA, INFOSYS, and more.
The highest package is 18 LPA and the average salary package remains around 5 LPA.
Amrita University offers good facilities to the students which include a well-designed library, sports fields along with hostel facilities for both boys and girls.
CUSAT, similarly provides modern classrooms with all the necessary equipment, alongside a library, sports facilities, and more. Each department is provided with its individual laboratories.
These are some of the major factors that you should be taking into consideration before making a decision about which one you would choose as your future institution.Read more

Ques. How is an MSc in environmental biotechnology at CUSAT?
● Top Answer By Admin on 20 Jul 21
Ans.MSc in Environmental Biotechnology is a very niche course that is offered by very few universities in India, Cochin University of Science And Technology (CUSAT) being one of them. Personally, I have come across very few schools of Environmental Studies in Indian universities that offer this program.
But then if you are interested then nothing should come between you and your choice. You may look at some of the IITs, IISERs, and other top universities if they provide this course or not and whether or not you are eligible for it. If you are not getting them, then CUSAT is fine as well.Read more
Ques. How is safety and fire engineering in CUSAT and what is the average package for this branch?
● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 28 Jul 21
Ans.The Fire and Safety Engineering Department is one of the best at CUSAT. As one of my friends studied there, I might be able to share some details which can help you with your question.
This department has got good infrastructure along with good faculties.
About 90% of the students of this branch get a good offer for a package.
But this field is limited to getting a job, as most of the companies recruiting on-campus look for other colleges.
The competition will be less as very few colleges offer this kind of branch.
CUSAT is the best fire and safety branch in India.
B.Tech in Safety and Fire Engineering at CUSAT
No. of seats
DRDO, ISRO, ONGC, GAIL, ABS, Reliance, British Safety Council, IOCL, BPCL, etc.
