Good campus life, unhelpful administration

Batch of 2017 | B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering
The infrastructure looks good to the eye but most of the buildings are not used for academic purposes and most of the hostels have not been allotted to the students, which will help them stay in a relaxed manner. The placement is good no doubt for non-core branches, but for core branches it is the same as all the other colleges across India. The administration is the worst that can be seen anywhere. They are unhelpful and would do anything to waste your time. The faculty is good, although do not cater to individual needs. Hostel life here is incomparable. Facilities are good too. And the college campus is big enough with adequate facilities.

College life is very good.Facaulty is not of the standard of a well known nit.Seniors are pretty helping.Hostel and campus infrastructure is pretty old and outdated.Placements are very good every year.A lot of fests are organized every year.To be honest seniors are more concerned about us than the administration itself.Mess food is very bad.

College campus is large and clean. Many opportunities for extracurricular activities. Hostels are maintained but can be made better. Academically good. Teachers are helpful and qualified. However one has to rely on self studying. Hostel food is very bad. College is affordable and also has many scholarship opportunities. It has a good exposure and placements are also commendable.

National institute of technology is government funded college which takes admission through Jee Mains It is an above average college. The placement stats for CSE and IT are very good and increasing every year but for other branches the placement record is not so good

I think that the industrial connect can be made stronger and the 1st year faculties provided can be improved because the departmental faculties are nice but the phD scholars are absolutely not convincing.The placement is good in the CSE and IT departments. the mechanical branch is also a preferred choice out here.
