    College Infrastructure

    While entering the main gate, you'll encounter with a ground on right hand side and main building in front. All respective department buildings are present in left and right side of main building. Overall infrastructure looks classic but space is very cozy as compared to other institutions.

    Have a question related to NIT Patna ?

    i am from bihar and i score 88.5 percentile in jee main can i take admission in nit patna

    Hello student,

    if you scored 88.5 percentile but you belong from the general category, then it will be tough to get NIT Patna. However, if you belong to reserved category like the ST, then you have a chance to get through.

    If you want only NIT Patna and you belong to other categories, then I suggest that you sit for the second attempt in the April session to imrpve your score and increase your chances.

    If you want to check your rank range based on your percentile, then you can refer to the Careers360 JEE Main Rank Predictor: https://engineering.careers360.com/jee-main-rank-predictor?

    can a computer science engineering student from NIT Patna works at ISRO?????

    Iggif and feel better soon and that is my resume for any questions I have

    CSE in NIT Patna or Mechanical in NIT Warangal? Which one is better in terms of placement, college life and exposure?

    Hello,

    According to my analysis, earning a degree from any engineering college is adequate if you are a student of computer science or engineering because you may compete on your own in a variety of coding competitions, and if you succeed, top corporations will undoubtedly want to hire you. CSE is all about practising, competing in events at various levels, and improving your CSE-related talents. Rankings from IIT-PATNA and NIT-WARANGAL are hardly distinguishable. They're sufficiently near. They are also too good in terms of packaging. Choose CSE at NIT Patna, however, based on where you can survive with little change in the environment. Both are excellent.

    Thank You
