College Infrastructure
The college has good infrastructure with a well maintained library, good medical facilities, proper laboratory facilities. Hostels are well maintained but need improvement as most hostels are old now. New hostels are coming up. Very neat campus.
Academics
Professors are always ready to solve doubts. Syllabus is covered properly and there are lots of hackathons and workshops by college clubs to facilitate practical understanding of what we learn. There are lots of projects offered to interested students too.
Placements
Though I'm in first year of college. Placements are really good for Computer Science and Information Technology students. However the Core branches need to work a bit more hard to grab their dream jobs.

College Infrastructure
The campus is good with nice environment and plantations all over.The newly build hostels are nice with good WiFi and Lan speed but most of the students are allotted in old hostels which are not in good conditions but can be adjustable,the library facilities are good,smart board are installed in many classes but most of the professors prefer board.The food is average here,you will never get food like your home not anywhere in India and the hostel are quit clean with regular cleaning facilities.
Academics
I am from CSE department and I took this department because I don't like to mug up most of the things and convey in a logical manner.The quality of teaching is average,the professors there are well qualified and can solve any of the doubts regarding any issues but teaching techniques are not that well manner.The curriculum keeps changing according to the present scenarios taking care of the demand of that subject in that field.If you are studying to get a good job you too have to study hard.
Placements
Placements are good,the highest package can raise around 30 to 40lpa and average up to 9lpa and mass companies also comes up take many of the students .The packages depends departmental wise where the highest packages goes to IT/CSE students and it also depends upon the student's performance if he/she performs well in placements then students from any branch can get a placement with decent package.
Campus Life
The campus life is the best here,get to know all kind of people around you as there is much diversity.There are various clubs for dancing,music,art, debating, management, photography,technical, automotive etc. and the campus is not that far from the near by malls and markets with many well know restaurants and in emergency cases a hospital is situated near by but there is a medical unit inside campus. Some professors can be bit annoying but you need to cope up with them if you want good grades.
Anything Else
The overall experience here is awesome.What makes a college,a college is the students.There what you have at the first year will be totally different when you reach final year with lots of experience over many things.You will just have to open up a little in the beginning and the environment does it all.College life spent here is precious,you start up with no knowledge to getting up a job,you start up with a proposal to getting up your love,you start up with friendship and getting up a family.

College Infrastructure
We have a spacious campus and there are both old and new buildings. The hostels are good, each room is to be shared by three students in the first year. The washrooms of the hostel are also sufficient in number and are well maintained. The mess food is good and also both vegetarian and non vegetarian options are available. There id plenty of facilities for playing both indoor and outdoor sports. the classrooms and laboratories are well maintained and equipped.
Academics
We have really knowledgeable and well learned faculties who have great command over their respective subjects. Most of the faculties have pursued their education from abroad and are currently doing research in their respective fields. Needless to say their knowledge and experiences translates well into their teachings.
Placements
Our college offers really good placement. The placement percentage of CSE is around 98%. Even for core branches like mechanical, the placement percentage is as high as 85%. A good number of renounced companies like Amazon, JP Morgan, oracle etc visit our campus for recruitment and the packages offered are also high.
Value-for-money
The college is not very costly, it is pretty affordable honestly. The per semester fee is around 75K but it can be less depending upon the income bracket of your family. Students with families having income below 1LPA pay around 7500 each semester, which is really affordable. The college has a pretty good ROI.
Campus Life
The campus life is simply amazing. We have really helpful faculties and staff members. There is a really healthy relationship between seniors and juniors and most of the seniors are really friendly and always available to provide guidance when needed. The campus is filled with all the essential amenities that one can want. There is really very little to complain about.
Anything Else
I am currently in third year, and to sum up my current experience till now, it has simply been spellbinding I have gotten man opportunities to exhibit my talent in all the areas, be it sports or cultural activities. Being a part of the Cricket team and the debating society has really provided a boost to my college. One major advantage of this college is that we have a really strong alumni network, in and outside India too.

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure is not so good . Especially the laboratories , hostel rooms and playground are not well maintained . The issue may be solved as new hostel for boys and new academic building have been constructed recently . Classroom quality is good .
Academics
Regarding Mechanical Engineering, the quality of teaching is good . Some of the teachers have really good concept and the way they deliver the lectures is also impressive . The curriculum for mechanical is updated . The study makes us job-ready . Professors also clarify our doubts regarding competitive exams .
Placements
Placements are decent for CSE and IT in NIT Durgapur. The maximum package for CSE is 40lpa (Microsoft) . Other companies like Oracle , Amazon , JP Morgan also visiit our campus for IT placement . Regarding mechanical companies like IOCL , BPCL , Tata Motors , and many more visits the campus . We also have abroad summer internship opportunities in CERN , DAAD , Mitacs .
Value-for-money
The cost of course in any NIT is not at all justifiable. Its just too much for a government college .

College Infrastructure
Before coming to the college, I expected a top-notch infrastructure as the name suggests it's NIT. I must say, it's quite satisfactory but not top-notch. The classrooms are spacious and have projectors and microphones. The laboratories are well equiped with apparatus. The library have some very good books in store for us. But the cataloguing is not computerized which is a big problem. But the main problem is students do not get free wifi in campus.The SAC and the sports centres are very good.
Academics
The performance in academics mostly depends upon your own effort. The quality of class lectures depend upon your luck as every professor is having a different teaching style that may or may not suit you. But at the end most of them are approachable if you have any doubt. In case of ECE, it's one of the best department of NIT Durgapur with updated curriculum and excellent faculties. Also there are plenty scopes of doing projects. The rest depends on you.
Placements
I am in the second sem currently. So not a very clear idea of the placement scene. But I have heard from the seniors and the quality of placement is quite satisfactory. In 2019 the average salary is 9.09LPA and the highest is 32.54LPA.90+ companies visited. The placement reached almost 70-80% for all branches with mechanical and electrical being the most prominent. Top visiting companies were IBM, TCS, Cognizant, Microsoft, Amazon, Director, Vedanta and Wipro and Infosys.
Value-for-money
The course fee is extremely high for general category-1 students (check fee pattern in NIT DGP website for further information). Its fee is nearly equivalent to a private college. The course structure is not up to the mark if we look from the huge fee perspective.
Campus Life
The campus is large, clean and beautiful with greenery everywhere. The stray dogs sometimes create a little bit of problem though😂. Best thing is plenty of food option. And the worst thing is zone culture. There are many clubs for different activities. One can give auditions according to their choice. The bus stop is nearby but the railway station is a bit far. The campus is safe with equipment to tackle emergencies.
Anything Else
The first year girls hostel is very very depressing with water and wifi problem prevailing. But the senior girls hostels are good.

College Infrastructure
We have a sapaceous campus having some old buildings replaced by new ones . Hostel are just good with proper number of bathrooms. In each room we have 3 students. We have 2 big grounds but not so well maintained. Hostels and departments are well connected with high speed WiFi. We also have badminton court,Gym etc Also lab and workshop are well equipped with required equipments. Mess food is good as it has non-vegetarian options.
Academics
Many of the faculties have degree from abroad and currently working on their research projects. They are helpful inside and outside the class. Their command over the subject is excellent. Our course curriculum should need to be updated especially for core branches so that we can match the level of current industrial demands.
Placements
Placement cell need to be reformed with good authorities so that they can manage the HRs and recruiters efficiently as placement are not only the subject matter for students. About 75% of students got placed while 90% of CSE/IT students got placed bagging with an average salary of 8LPA . We have various top MNCs like Google, Amazon etc while mass recruiters like TCS ,Infosys etc. Highest salary goes to about 40LPA by CSE/IT student.
Value-for-money
I pay around 69k per semester as my income category is below 5LPA. students with income category less than 1LPA pay around 7500 per semester. Thus such a low fees for NIT tag and such facilities justifies worth of every penny of my money.
Campus Life
In the sports corner , we have 2 big grounds, badminton court,Table tennis facilities ,Gym etc we also have 3 Main fest celebrated every year - Aviskar ,Aarohan and recstacy. Also we have freshers and fairwell in which we keep the moment to decay slowly. Seniors faculties and staff members are helpful except some the staffs being rude . Also we have medical facilities available for college students free of cost

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.

Well, how do I start? NIT Durgapur. A college? Well, technically but not really. Its rather a way of life. Not one of those colleges with a lot of admirers and students eyeing. What i mean is you need to live this experience to know. Expectations of a student: It is an NIT. It's got to be good. Its a central government funded institution after all. Reality: Infrastructure, Faculty, Course, Food may disappoint you. Don't be surprised. Its actually the proverbial "hostel ka khana". In terms of infrastructure, faculty, course, hostel and other facilities, i would say it is alright, nothing great about them. What happens is a series of disappointing situations may give you the impression that it was a wrong choice at first. But what do you do? You wait. You wait for things to get better. They don't but you start liking it this way. You get to meet a lot of people here. What is special about this college in contrast to other WB colleges is the diversity of people coming from across India which makes it one hell of a ride. You make friends and when your freshmen year approaches its culmination, you realize it wasn't that bad after all. Once you start liking this place, it doesn't matter anymore. Plus Points: Diverse Student Crowd Superb Alumni Good Placement Make good friends. Negative points won't bother you. Opportunity to excel if you know what you're doing. Helpful Seniors. Hostel Life. Negative Points: Faculty. If you think that teachers really teach here, maybe 1 in a hundred. Infrastructure (It's a lot better than what was a year or two ago) Place. Durgapur isn't that happening. Not many places. However, I am sure 90% of NITD students feel the same way. It's alright and if you know what you are doing, this place has a lot to offer.

Let me compare "NIT" Durgapur or any other NIT with a 'good private' college Placement: Studying in a NIT increases your chances of getting placed in companies better than TCS and when you jump from your first company to another, your college tag will add to your profile. Infrastructure: Government colleges may not have best infrastructure facilities compared to private colleges, but it should not bother much if you are hard working and your goal is to get the best possible job. Internship: Again, your college tag will surely come into effect when seeking internships. No doubt about that. Companies will any day prefer NITians over private college students (if not BITS) as companies think students in NITs and IITs are more serious and dedicated. Faculty: In every college, some of the professors will be very good, some you will hate, and some will be not so good. But if you have good relations with teachers, they might help you get training/internships in other better colleges. No doubt, faculties in NITs will have a better network with faculties of IITs compared to the faculty of some good private college. So better chances of getting internships in IITs if you are an NITian. I would also like to add one more very important point of comparison, your batch mates. Any day, you will get more serious, studious, hard-working and intelligent batch mates in NITs and trust me, in engineering (particularly in CS/IT), how do you prepare yourself outside your classroom matters a lot. Hope this will help anyone with a similar confusion.

The tag value means to all students, good platform for education, rules n regulation isn't the strong . The college provides a good platform or M.tech n Ph.D. students,faculty are helpful but college authorities don't maintain a regularity of regulations . Poor connectivity of bus n autos , too fearful to stay at night and the mess food isn't up to mark I am a student pursuing Mtech in biotechnology, and the department provides a good platform for research and higher education ( no placement as such.

Immaculate hostel facilities within affordable budget, strong alumni,stimulating peers and respected faculty-all rolled into one of the most revered colleges of eastern India. Ranked consistently within top 20 engineering schools, one can expect an enviable return on investment.Research opportunities are manifold and is an infrastructural haven with state-of-art hostels,sporting facilities and the one-of-a kind HV lab. I invested 4 years of my life here.And if given a chance,I would happily do it all over again.

An Excellent college to be a part of if you want to pursue your career in Engineering. Starting from the good infrastructure to good faculty, a mix of different types of students coming from all across India gives you a platform to learn and grow as a person. Being an autonomous college, the course outline is pretty different and advanced from any other college, which helps to learn better than others. The placements are as par with the best NIT's

Keep your preference high for Metallurgy than Biotech because Biotech is a very new branch of this college. Metallurgy is good because there is Durgapur steel plant,alloy steel plant nearby. Coalfield is also there.Because of the location of Durgapur Metallurgy, Mechanical ,EE is relatively better option than other courses.

It's a college where you can have fun but profs will keep you under intense pressure. Here profs are actually given the status of Gods. profs are not very friendly but seniors help you a lot. IT and CS have exceptional placement. The Civil department lacks in placement and other departments are fine.

Durgapur, which is known as Steel City, is the second biggest city in West Bengal after Kolkata. Well connected by Rail and Road, the campus is quite urban, thanks to its excellent location in the heart of Durgapur. The library is excellent – about a lakh volumes and ever-increasing. The Students in their respective hostels have LAN access, but while in the departments, there is access to WiFi as well.

NIT Durgapur is one of only a handful of institutes in India to boast of a ‘high voltage laboratory’, and this one is the best of its kind. The library, most of the labs, and all the computer centres are air-conditioned. They have 10 hostels here, seven for boys (with another one coming up) and three for girls. The new hostels, of course, have much better facilities, but the old hostels are definitely more popular. Each hostel has a mess and a common room. Final year students normally have a room to themselves, while second and third-year students share their rooms with two or three other students. First years are put up in massive halls and are kept regular tabs on.

Faculty is not that good. College life is fun. The campus is okay. Development is going on. Placements are okay. Fests are also good. Labs are also okay. Overall you can join the college. But like all other colleges you have to study yourself. There are a few good students as well
