Great institution with heritage

Batch of 1991 | B.Tech Electrical and Electronics Engineering
It is a great institution with fantastic infrastructure spread across 780 acres that is well maintained. The recent mushrooming of satellite centers in various locations is pulling down the value of the main institute. Location and hence attractiveness to quality faculty is another disadvantage.

Quality of student is much better than the college

The biggest drawbacks of this college is its management which is very poor. The college lacks in quality of faculty, infrastructure and there is zero Industry Exposure. Many students take admission in this college due its ranking in various magazines but actually it is not up to its reputation and ranking.

Infrastructure is very good although mesra,Jaipur campus is located in industrial area with less space and that's why the students hate it . In this campus getting 7.5 above is difficult it means it's absolute grading comparatively based on cgpa according to the given rule . From this institute we can learn discipline,self study, motivation ,dignity. This college also boasts the placement record in ECE,CSE,IT,EEE.

A better place to learn and have exposure.

Posted on 21 Dec' 17 by Shailesh Sinha
Batch of 2020 | B.Tech Mechanical Engineering
It has been a great experience for last two years in the college. Initially in the first year it was quite tiresome going to the college and coming back to hostel....and then again going back for the classes. But the examination time has been a great time,studying the night before the exam... But yes as the days passed things became quite good and then intresting. A great place to pursue one's graduation.

BIT Mesra with a beautiful campus of 780 acres, is regularly ranked within the top 15 engineering colleges in India. I'll share my experience, being a student here what I feel. Faculty- Certainly not the best in the country, not even close. Some of the older professors are good but focus less on research. Some of the new professors work hard and make our Engineering life a bit tough. Academic load - It borders between zilch and extremely light. It also varies between departments though. Electrical and Electronics was pretty well taught and rigorous, whereas CSE has a little less work to do. Electrical department has some very strict profs. Mechanical department is refreshingly hands on and students gain a very good practical understanding. Students and Peer Group Probably the highlight of the institute is the quality of student intake. Due to the rankings being consistently in the top 15 or so, the student intake is the high rankers of the JEE Mains. From an intellectual section of the society, student here are amongst the cream of the country. It is no surprise that the institute boasts of a pretty strong Alumni network, and the college is now beginning to realize this potential in its placements. Student Activities Given that all these bright minds have little or no academic work to take care of, the vent they find to their intellectual and creative pursuits finds expression in a vibrant student activity scene. There are student clubs will organize a plethora of events and fests ranging all across the spectrum. Cultural as well as technical pursuits are taken up by the students with fervor. Any technical proficiency that a student may acquire during his time here, is almost entirely down to the events and fests organized by clubs. Facilities I would say the facilities (sports, labs, infra) are about at par with the NIT's. Right now the campus is undergoing a renovation and the class rooms are being upgraded. The college has LAN in all the rooms as well the campus has been turned into a wi-fi zone. Most important we have "DC" here. Placements Due to the location, placements were not really something the institute could really brag about until after about 2006-07 onward. Nowadays, placements are quite stunning and companies like Facebook have offered mega packages and overseas jobs to a few students. In terms of quantity, placements have always been almost 100% with everyone landing some kind of job, and about 30% of the students end up with multiple offers. All in all, it is not a bad place to go to if you are looking for more life lessons than course lessons. The institute may not be a production line for techies and world-beaters, but it does have a track-record for producing well-rounded individuals, many of whom have done well for themselves in the industry.
