Best college. As it is in NIT jamshedpur

Posted on 20 Sep' 17 by Ved Prakash Arya
Batch of Jan. 1, 2021 | B.Tech Electronics and Communication Engineering
*College infrastructure* IIIT RANCHI has not its own campus but one important or best thing about this is its temporary campus is in NIT jamshedpur. So u can live ur college life like the students of nit jamshedpur *College placement* As our first batch will pass out in we cannt predict placement.... But as said by some members of NIT JSR that our placement will conduct under NIT jamshedpur.... So no worry for placement... *industry exposure* As i have already told that dont think it as iiit bcoz we r living our life like nit jsr students... So exposure will be high *faculty* Some faculties are new recruited but most of the faculty are of NIT jamshedpur which is a big point. Labs are same for nit jsr and iiit ranchi. *college life and hostel life* There is huge crowd in the campus of nit jsr which makes u feel happy always... Whole year fests organise and offcourse iiit students ka treated same as nit jsr students.... About hostel is that no any nit or iits have hostel like this... As it provides single room including almirah and ofcourse there is a separate balcony for each room. Overall if u r getting this college then go ahead.... It will be ur right choice... Thank u... chill... Photo attached is of hostel

IIIT RANCHI, IIIT KOTA, IIIT GWALIOR, HBTU KANPUR..which is best for CSE btech in terms of placements and all over faculty?Please tell

Harshit sethi 26th Mar, 2020

IIIT Gwalior will be the best for CSE in terms of placement and the HBTU Kanpur, then IIIT Ranchi then IIIT Kota.

IIIT Gwalior is one of the oldest IIIT and many top companies come to campus for recruitment and offering package as high as 44 lacs. Where as IIIT RANCHI AND IIIT KOTA are new in this field and have not seen so much placement and dont have permanent campus as well.

As far as HBTU Kanpur is concerned it is also good for CSE in terms of placement but not good for knowledge.

So if you good education and placement choose IIIT Gwalior.

Hope it helps.

How is Indian Institute of Information Technology RANCHI?

Aman Kumar 24th Jul, 2019
Dear Ayush,

The college is new so needs a bit time to become a developed institute. It's first batch will pass out in 2020 from NIT jamshedpur.

The placements are mostly dependent on the students . There will be 100% placement as assured by the director of IIIT Ranchi but only those who are well qualified and excelleled in any field will get the package of above 20 lacs.

The best thing this College have, is its students… we are good in every field let it be Sports, Technical or Cultural. Even we are getting invited from different reputed Colleges (IIT patna, ISM dhanbad, IIIT allahabad…) to participate in their annual events.

From this year we are going to participate in inter IIIT Annual Sports Meet. We are also participating in annual Tech Fest of IIT patna.

We are taking all the good things from our Mentor institute and integrating it in ours.

Club in IIIT Ranchi are:-

  • Technical clubs,
  • Android Club (Andromeda)
  • Coding Club of IIIT ranchi…
  • Sports club,
  • Cricket, Basketball, Football, TT, Athletics events…
  • Clutual Club,
  • Art, anchoring…

Rate of growth is faster as compared to other newly formed NIT or IIIT's …

2k16 batch (40 students out of 60 seats),

2k17 batch (108 students out of 120 seats),

2k18 batch (110 students out of 120 seats).

Admission is based directly on seat allotment by JOSAA and not on private bassis (based on jee main marks but not based on Josaa )as some of the institute (IIIT Kota, IIIT kotayam, NIT andrapradesh and so on…)does to fill it's seat .

Hope I have made myself clear.
Best of Luck!

Which is better, IIIT Surat for an ECE or IIIT Ranchi for a CSE?

Ranjot Singh Student Expert 18th Jul, 2019

Dear student, IIIT Surat is one of the leading Indian wing institution in India and is lot better than its counterpart in Ranchi. If you can compromise with your branch CSE, then you can go for Surat and pursue ECE. Placements for ECE branch are pretty good and job opportunities are available all over India and abroad companies.
