College life is such a fun ride but getting there: not so much(if anyone asked me if would want to revisit my JEE days, I would never take that offer). So after clearing JEE, there I was like a thousand others excited to start college life. I contacted a few seniors and they gave me really good reviews but they also warned me that though my college boasts to have its own private beach, it's also a minus point since it's hot all the time there.I considered the good points against the bad ones and joined. After two years, I still feel the same, sometimes even better.I met a lot of interesting people from all across the country each in their own way different and yet same. It's always an amazing experience to talk about ideas with them.We can go to the beach whenever we want. The professors are very encouraging and are always telling us to find answers on our and try out different things. We have two fests in our college:one technical and one cultural. The technical fest ENGINEER has events from all fields of engineering and working in those committees is a lot of fun and an amazing learning experience. The cultural fest is even bigger and we have participants from all across the country . Many companies like Texas Instruments, Bosch, Google come to our college for placements and internships and they take away a lot more than they came for. Well there are two sides to a coin. The hostel facilities aren't that great but for what we pay its more than worth it . As I said before, two years down, I still feel the good points outweighs the bad ones and I feel nostalgic when I think that I have only two years left which would be gone in the blink of an eye.

NITK life is just amazing. Every individual who joins this college will not just academically bit will also become an all rounder. This is because of the amazing extracurricular clubs NITK has. Faculties are decent here but it mostly depends on the respective departments. Hostel buildings are all old but it is manageable. Every person joinin here will definitely enjoy their engineering life.

The college is really a beautiful place with a lot of greenery, friendly crowd and of course the private beach! Apart from being known to produce really good engineers, the college has much to offer to the students in terms of improving other soft skills , extra curricular and co curricular activities. The placements are really good and the college tries to even offer internships to 2nd and 3rd years. Even though there is reservation, the college houses a really good crowd who have diverse interests and opinions. In campus facilities are plenty and the student council are always working hard to make our life easier. The hostels are actually better than that expected of a government institution. It has campus wide Wi-Fi which is really cool. Also the college is using its funds to build new , better buildings with latest technology and renovating old buildings. Faculty are really good- highly qualified and supportive. They are engaged in research activities and also take up government funded projects and allow students to help them out giving us an opportunity to practically get a feel for the concepts learnt in class. Overall,the college is awesome and I would recommend people to join

NITK experience

NITK Surathkal is really best college in India. It has a unique thing "NITK Beach". Only college in India having it's own beach. Placement status and infrastructure is really good. Northern students won't like it's Hostel life because here they provide southern eatables. College faculty is really good. They help students as much as they can. Seniors are really good here. You can ask your doubts them, they will try best. Ragging free campus. Many cultural and technical events organised in the college." Incident" is such a big cultural festival in NITK. It's famous all over south India. And "Engineer" is a Techfest which makes NITK feel proud. Dance club, music club, film club, design and creation club are here. We can choose our interest and participate. And major fact is, college is really very aware about students' future and real world. Health care centre is also here. Sports club members are really good. We can play the sport whichever we like. I'm a first year student. I really got a good experience in the college because of beach and events. Overall college is the best. I love NITK.

Improper management and coordination. No official posting of information, unhealthy working hours. No sufficient information on internships, training and placements. Unhygienic conditions of drinking water and overhead tank systems, dishes available in the mess are deliberately not good. Some faculty really do not know the subject, maximum of teachers do not know to teach and understand students despite knowing the subject, some deliberately play with student life.

Vacation from work

Batch of 2016 | M.Tech Construction Technology and Management
Two years of vacation after two years of stressful work. It was finding an oasis in a desert. The brand value of NITK was good and the campus had all the facilities required. The accessibility to reach college was also very good compared to many other IITs and NITs which usually lies sin city outskirts. The places nearby and the serene beauty of trekking spots in the western ghats nearby made the stay even more pleasant. The beaches that lie in the vicinity and the nearby holiday spots like goa also added to the fun. Got so many new friends which are beyond words could ever describe.

Life long memories with Best college life one can ever get

NIT Surathkal - The best days of my life! It's the place where best of the engineers of India are united. The placements are indeed the best in the industry with companies coming year long. I agree the faculty base needs to be improved with more of Professors coming in than Assistant Lecturers. Apart from this, the campus has excellent infrastructure and is spread across 250 acres. Moreover, It's the only college in India that has its own private beach, including a lighthouse! What more we need to refresh ourselves amidst the hectic schedule. The hostel has different blocks for each years students with multiple canteens. Whether it's 2pm or 2am, one always have many options to eat from like Nescafe, Coffee Dubba, Nandini, Amul, Crumbs, Night canteens, GMPD and the list goes on. Also, the college sees huge crowd during its national Technical fest - Engineer, Cultural Fest - Incident which adds on more to the fun. In true sense, it's a place where one gets to learn a lot from peers (best minds) and have a lot of fun at the same time. Truly one would take away a lot of memories to cherish throughout the life.

Hostels were like hotels with sea view. I was provided an opportunity to undergo summer internship for corporate exposure. The placement here is at par with best colleges of India.Friends and sea beach made my college life so enjoyable. I was placed in Oracle as Software Developer. I was provided with all basic facilities along with the LAN connection which was awesome.

Has gorgeous campus, good professors, on par instruments for all departments, good hostel management systems and down-to-earth students and administrators and many various clubs and groups to find and discuss topics/hobbies of interest. Even has its own beach, gymnasium, swimming pool and many sports facilities. Lacks high-level instruments in labs, below average hostels (over 50 years old), still not fully computerized storage, admission and evaluation systems. Placements are extremely good for most departments and usually extend to a large range of students, including students interested in research. Hostels could be upgraded in many ways, especially the hygiene and food facilities. Student crowd: Down to earth and focused but fun people. College is affordable to live in due to the low price of food and commuting to the city for any formal work or even just for entertainment purposes. Fee tallies to about Rs. 75,000/- per semester.

The ultimate college experience

Batch of 2019 | B.Tech Chemical Engineering
Well, initially NITK seemed to me as a place of utter boredom where the only thing people do is study. But coming to this college absolutely changed my perspective on things, the size of the college amazed me. Despite the hostel being somewhat average, with new friends and a bit of readjustment it quickly became a new home. The infrastructure is ok but is put to good use in the college. The number of events held in college is overwhelming and has exposed me to a lot of new events and experiences. The faculty is caring and most are simply brilliant. Overall I really liked the college life here at NITK.

My experiences in this college till far has been wonderful and I hope it would be even better till my final year.Here you would find every variety of people from India. When I first came to the college I expected the infrastructure of the college to be the best but it wasn't up to my expectations but the interior of every building is at its best condition. Our college has the 2nd largest cultural fest in the South India and 5th largest in India. I am proud to be in such a college. Taking about the placements people, at first, get nervous whether they will get the job or not but in reality almost maximum people get it. I love to live in Hostel since it doesn't feel like hostel because ITS A HOME AWAY FROM HOME... and lastly we have our own private beach.

Good infrastructure facilities almost about 300 acres of area. Stands 1 sit position in the rank of placements among all NIT's in India. Hostels are not too bad nor too good.excellent placements.The best way to clear the carrier is to join in this type of colleges.

Well, this is the only college in India having its own beach. College infrastructure and placement are worth praising and quite ahead of some of the IITs. Systematic working of clubs and student council allows students to study and have fun at once. Having some of the greatest fests(Engineer, Incident, Crescendo) of India, it feels awesome to be a part of this college.

It is a place with unimaginable beauty. Located along the coastline, the place never witnesses cold. Though its hot during the day, but the night and the morning are pleasent. The school of management has the potentail to become the best amongst other in the country. Student intake is less hence maintaining the quality. Hostels are at par with private colleges. Extracuricular activities continue thoruohgtout the year. The nearest city, Mangalore provides all the facilities of Metro city level. The SOM is only 7 years old and has lot to achieve.

A place for creative engineers

Batch of 2016 | B.Tech Metallurgical and Materials Engineering
NITK Surathkal is one of the best place to be if you are interested in technology and its application. The laboratories are some of the best in the country, but what makes this college the best are the faculties. The faculty helps the students throughout their their time in the college. The campus is huge and green with the freshness felt in every corner of the place, not to mention the evening sunset at the NITK beach which is breathtaking. The annual techno-management fest "ENGINEER" is the best among the NIT's. The inter college cultural fest, "INCIDENT", has a lot of bands and artists from all across the glob performing here. The only problem is that with all the activities, fun, projects etc, 4 years goes too fast in this college and before you know it you are handed your degree certificate
