my tancet 2020 mtech general category rank is 45 and obc category rank is 23 and i got 98.888% in tancet. will i get power electronics in ceg campus.

gaurav123.kr 22nd Nov, 2020


Accoriding to your category rank (23) and percentile (98.8), you will get power electronics for your M.Tech course in CEG campus. Also you have to wait for some time because CEG campus will releases its lists on its official website from where you need to confirm.

According to my research you will get the seat wheather you have state quota also or not.

all the best!!

Hello Aspirant,

Placements in Kamla Nehru Institute of Technology (KNIT) are average. The mass-recruiting companies such as TCS, Wipro, Infosys, Capgemini, Mediate and Global Logic etc. have visited the campus.  On an average, the package offered to electronics branch students ranged from 3-4 LPA to 8-8.5 LPA. The Highest package is 8-9 LPA.

There is no ECE branch in KNIT Sultanpur. There are Electronic Engineering and Electrical Engineering branch in KNIT Sultanpur. For more Information I'm providing you a link:


I hope this will help you.

All the best for your bright future ahead.


What should I choose electronics engineering in KNIT sultanpur OR CS in Dr Ambedkar institute of technology for handicapped,kanpur ?

sharmavivek2462 1st Nov, 2020

Hi, since both the colleges are owned by state government so in college comparison KNIT has an edge over Dr. Ambedakar Institute of Technology for Handicapped, Kanpur. Now since it have an edge over  Dr. Ambedakar Institute of Technology for Handicapped, Kanpur so if we compare both the branches that you have asked in the question so on the basic overview of the both the ECE of KNIT and CSE of  Dr. Ambedakar Institute of Technology for Handicapped there also ECE of KNIT have an edge over the other institution not only in placements but overall development also.

Good Luck.


Which is better for placement between Electronics engineering in KNIT sultanpur Or Computer science in Dr ambedkar institute of technology for handicapped ,kanpur please advice me urgently

myidshivanisrivastava 31st Oct, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

KNIT Sultanpur- About 70 percent of the students are placed in mass-recruiting companies such as TCS, Wipro, Infosys, Capgemini etc. The average package is 4-5 LPA, while highest package is 12 LPA.

Dr. Ambedkar Institute of Technology for Handicapped, Kanpur- About 60 percent of the students get placed. The average package is approx. 3.3 LPA, while the highest package offered was 8.8 LPA, by Wipro. Other recruiters are Tech Mahindra, TCS, ACC, Dell, L&T etc.

I think KNIT Sultanpur is better in all terms, not only because it is one of the top Engineering Colleges of AKTU, but also because ECE at this college has better records of placement, on the whole. Also, ECE can get you better opportunities in Public Sector, and Govt. jobs too.

You can check out the details of both the courses at their respective colleges according to their fees, eligibility criteria, and reviews of Students here:
