NIT Calicut has great infrastructure. It constantly conducts workshops and seminars to give exposure to the student about the industry. Most memorable experience is about hostel life, still misses late night Maggie and night canteen. Friends you made their lasts for the lifetime.

Some seniors got really good packages of around 20 lakh/annum. 60-70% of students got placed. The highest package was around 21 lakhs, the lowest was around 3 lakhs and the average was 6-7 lakhs. Companies like TCS, Schneider, Tata etc. come for placements. Roles like working under superior engineers and managing roles were given. Only a few students got internship from college, around only 10-15%. The highest stipend was 5 lakhs, the lowest was around 1 lakh and average was 1.5 lakhs. The faculty members teach well but they are not supportive. Most of them don't support extra-curricular activities and sometimes threaten to fail in exams. There is a need of well-qualified professors as most of the faculty members here are ad-hoc. The student to faculty ratio is 20:1. No industry exposure is provided. The course curriculum is very useful.

Is Nitc the best college for engineering in Kerala?

Kerala , also known as the God's own country has undoubtedly the best scenic views. Nitc is one of the most beautiful campuses you'll find in India! Let me start off with the placements first since, any university is judged based on its placement. Cse has the maximum placement percentage compared to any other branch. If you have a cgpa above 6.5 with basic aptitude skills then you are placed for sure. Other branches suffer due to lack of core companies visiting the campus.The main reason being lack of industries in Kerala and less connectivity to calicut from other places. Even though calicut has an international airport , flights which fly between gulf countries are more than those flying to other states in India. This forces the HR people of various companies to reach calicut via road which is not preferred. Now coming to infrastructure, they have a supercomputer of their own! The labs and workshops are fully equipped and are updated from time to time. Coming to the faculty, new departments such as chemical , biotechnology, lack in permanent faculty and most of the classes are conducted by the adhoc faculty who have less experience and knowledge.Hostels are well furnished and provided with all the basic eminities.College life is full of fun and excitement it gives you a platform to prove your talents and intellect. If you want to become a dancer you'll have them training you . If you want to become a musician you'll have them training you . A photographer? Sure ! We have that too and many more than your imagination can take you . So winding yup, you can watch YouTube videos without buffering and you have well maintained sport field's which are the main supplements of good life !

Need a lot of improvement

A very bad college for girl students... Restrictions at every corner... Boys have no such problems... Infrastructure should be improved considering it is a college of national importance... Very few permanent faculties... Mostly Ad-hocs take classes... If at all some improvement were to happen, it occurs only 2 weeks before accreditation... Definitely need to improve.. Poor industry exposure... However college life is amazing... A lot of room to improve... Definitely met a lot of wonderful faculties who motivated me and my friends...
