Infrastructure of the college and its location would bring serenity and peace for students to concentrate. The beauty of the campus cannot be described in words it must be experienced. NIT is located near the hills in Panposh region of Rourkela. Regarding academic aspects, institute provides various departments of engineering and research for aspirants. Each department has its own goal in sculpting the bright engineers to serve the nation. Various facilities in the laboratories would bring students closer to the practical way of the working industries and laboratories in the country.

The pleasure in struggle

The Institute could provide jobs to most of the students with a decent ROI. Problems with good companies visiting the Institute for placements is its remote location. Though my subject was mostly theoretical, some of the faculties did an excellent job by blending theory with numericals, so as to capture the interest of us students. Talent in every field, from academics to games and sports to extra-curricular is always welcomed and motivated. One of the very best thing about the Institute is its campus which is beautiful and has boards containing quotes from great men to keep the students optimistic and motivated. It really helped me during my bad days as well as good ones!

Likely Satisfied with the college and decent Placements

Batch of 2019 | B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering
Placements : The placements in NITR, especially for CSE branch were really good and almost 90% of our batch were placed. The average package was 7 LPA. Most of the job profiles were for "Software Engineer". Well-known companies like Microsoft, Codenation, Amazon, DE Shaw, Goldman Sachs had offered placements in NITR. Almost every company which came for placements used to conduct interviews for internships too, so it is a pretty good opportunity to learn about the IT industries before getting into the real-time fields. Infrastructure : NIT's one of the best infrastructure-oriented campuses you will find in India. All kinds of sports are available from land to water. Indoor to outdoor etc. Although, being a south Indian, I was never satisfied with the food but still it was not all bad. There are plenty of hostels to accommodate the whole college strength and the rooms are well maintained but are not very good looking since they were built many years ago. Hi-speed internet connections (both Ethernet and Wi-Fi) are available with a pretty good bandwidth. Faculty : Of course, the faculty here is the best of its kind, although, to be honest, there are a few who are not up to the mark, anyways this is the scenario in every engineering college. The curriculum is well designed to keep the students busy and to be good at what he/she is doing. (Of course, not everyone follows it as it should be). The everyday curriculum includes a few classroom teachings and a lab session and the number of classes and credits for the subjects are different for different semesters. (8 semesters:- 1 mid-sem and 1 end-sem examination for a semester). Other : Engineering is the stage in your life where you find your true self, your passion, and the most importantly, a bunch of unforgettable memories. The universities you study in play a very important role for it and NITR is one of those places where you can cherish those wonderful memories for the rest of your lives. The student formed communities, clubs, dance troops, sports teams, and what not, will help you in developing your career and your personality.

An institute of national importance

Batch of 2016 | B.Tech Electrical Engineering
NIT Rourkela has recently taken massive leaps in terms of infrastructure. There still is a lot of construction happening, with a number of new hostels and academic wings coming up. There’s a very unique thing about NIT Rourkela. While students don’t doubt the quality of the professors, they concede that the faculty ‘isn’t really taken seriously’. Students tend to just ‘hear the professors out’, but not pay too much attention to anything they say. The placements do suffer a little due to the lack of a major airport near Rourkela. However, that doesn’t mean that the placements are bad; not at all! NIT Rourkela has a rule that states that no company offering a package of less than 3.2 lacs per annum is allowed to participate in the placement process, and yet it manages to get all of its students placed.
