    which is better ece in nitk or in iiita


    Both institutions are excellent in every way, however let me share with you something fascinating.

    Among all NITs and IIITs, NITK ranks third and IIIT Allahabad sixth. All renowned businesses, like Facebook, Amazon, Google, and others, visit both colleges. As you are aware, the percentage of ECE/CS placements is higher presently.

    In terms of fees, IIITA charges about 98k year, including the cost of the dorm, compared to 150k at NITK.

    The conclusion is that you ought to join at IIITA, in my opinion.

    Thank You

    My son looks to have admission choices as below. Pl suggest 1) CS at IIIT Hyderabad 5 yr integrated course 2) AI at NIT Surathkal 3) CS at BITS Goa

    Dear parents,

    All three colleges are best. Now it all depend on the interest of your son.

    CS in IIT Hyderabad is good. They have good faculty and placement scenario.

    If your son choose this course then he have to do Btech with Mtech in 5 years which is good.

    Now moving toward NIT. AI in NIT is good but not so popular in today's placement scenario. If he want to pursue higher degree on AI then he can choose. And also after IIT , NIT tag is valuable but in placement situation, it not so good.

    And at last CS in BITS Goa. I will say don't take BITS Goa. If your son get BITS Pilani then it will consider best.

    So, as per my suggestion, for getting good placement - IIIT Hyderabad and for pursue higher studies - NIT Surathkal

    Thank You
