    8.0 /10

    Fee Structure And Facilities :

    There are separate course fee for DASA students(outside India) and students from inside India. Course fee is somewhat feasible as there is loan availability from SBI NITC branch. But every course fee is getting increased. So for students course fee is expensive. There is separate fee for hostels.

    Course Curriculum Overview :

    The course curriculum is same as other NITs. There are other branches like B. Arch, Biotechnology and chemistry, physics, etc. Course fee may vary accordingly. Exams include two internals and an end semester exam. Internal exams will help you to remember what you studied and save it for end exam for each semester.

    Fee Structure And Facilities :

    As compared to the state government engineering colleges the fee structure is not feasible. The approximate fee was about 20k. But now it’s doubled. We can pay fees by online and offline modes. There is no additional charge to be paid in order to secure an admission to the course. There is no transparency in the fee breakdown. Fee should be paid before the start of each semester.

    Course Curriculum Overview :

    Course curriculum are similar to the other college curriculum of the similar course. Since Institute is deemed one, the exams are conducted by College its self and exam evaluation is also done by Institute. I don’t believe that course curriculum is not groomed to provide industry specific knowledge to the students. So the students are struggling in the campus placements due to lack of industry specific knowledge. The industrial visits should be arranged by students them selves. There is no compulsory for the students to do the industrial visits as part of the course. The industrial visits should be arranged by students them selves.
