Nit Rourkela is well known for it's lush green campus and also equipped with best facilities like swimming pool, cricket ground, library and 24*7 internet facilities. The main building is well know for various academic works and also vs HALL is regarded as the second best hostel in Asia that can accomodate large number of students. The food is good and hygenic. You will get non-veg every day except monday. On sunday you will get chicken tandoor in nonveg which is very delicious.
Academics
I am pursuing my btech in industrial design department that includes basically designing softwares where you can work as UI/UX designer in the future. The quality of teaching is not good at all. Most of the professors tends to teach through slides and ppt. But the examination department is very strict ,they easily impose penalty for a small mistake also. Yes curriculum is updated but the fact is that the professors don't teach the whole syllabus, they skip most of the syllabus.
Placements
Beleive me when it's come to placement statistics, Ican assure you that you will definitely get placed if you work a little hard. Most of the IT companies comes to recruit thousands of students. Microsoft generall offer the highest placement package that is 42 lakhs/annum while the lowest is offered by TCS or Wipro(mass recruitment). Average salary generally offered to the students is generally 6 lakhs per annum.
Value-for-money
The academic course cost 62,500 rupees per semester and the hostel charges, food, gym, library, etc cost rupees 30,000 per semester, so the total fees for the whole semester is 92,500. I am satisfied with the hostel charges and its facilities, but when it comes to academics the professors are not worth and they don't even guide you how to prepare for competitive exam. But there are some exceptional professors also.
Campus Life
Students can take parts in various clubs and SAC is well known for funding the clubs and organising various cultural events. The wprst feature is that it does not have groundsmen to maintain the fields as a result seniors will force you to work day and night in order to maintain the ground while mathches are conducted. Yes , it's quite safe with lush green campus and the workers are also too hardworking and helpful in nature. Yes, it can handle emergencies and Igh is THERE FOR MEDICAL SUPPORT.
Anything Else
PLEASE VISIT THE CAMPUS IN ORDER TO ATTEND THE CULUTURAL FEST LIKE INNOVISION AND NITRUTSAV.

As NIT Rourkela is an institute of national importance...it's infrastructure should be compared to other NITs. and in that contest, it has an average infrastructure. although it has all the basic facility.
Academics
Academics is awesome here at NIT . it has strict rules for attending classes , performing experiments in lab and one can't skip these at any cost.professors may not be that good at teaching(situation of almost all NITs and IITs).
Placements
Placement wise it's above average and below top 10 NITs. overall placement is very good, you can expect high packages if you are cs/ece student. and if you are in other branches then also you can grab good packages if your cgpa is good as many psu visit our campus.
Campus Life
Yeah campus is small you don't need bicycles to roam here and there but this small campus is really beautiful. The campus is being guarded by very responsible personals so it's safe also to walk in campus even in night too.

College Infrastructure
The college has an alluring infrastructure with the needed facilities in the hostels and sport centres, sufficient equipments in the Laboratories of the Departments, and libraries are always clean and has enouogh books to read in the college life.
Academics
The academics is strong and competitive here and this is learning process makes the student overcome the problems himself. This makes the students self sufficient and the personality that they grow in themselves makes them ready to tackle the battles in their life.
Placements
The placements are really amazing with the highest placement offered as 43 lacs, with a lot of new companies and outstanding packages this year. This year, the average package has been increased by approximately half the last year. Except the ones who did not sit for placements, almost all of the rest students are placed with good packages.
Value-for-money
The facilities provided and the environment here lifts up the students, enhancing their skills and making it easier to achieve the dreams. This is worth the money being paid. The course fee that we pay every year is lower than the current one.
Campus Life
The college has a lot of clubs focusing on chemical innovations, coding, racing, dance and music, charity, entrepreneurship cell, etc. This helps in overall development of the students. The teachers are not different than any other college of the same level, but they support the students in the research and other parts of the academics.
Anything Else
The students after 12th are sometimes disheartened by the important choices that they make in their lives. They should remember that every failure is a pillar to their success. Be patient and think before taking decisions at every step of your life. Life teaches you this along with patience but dealing with problems is necessary to decrease them. So enjoy the college because this time cannot be re-lived.

Being the second biggest college in terms of area in India, we have all the necessary infrastructure and more here. Wifi is not available in the campus except for the library but LAN connection is available everywhere.
Academics
The curriculum and teaching pattern is great. Having a summer semester is very helpful for struggling students. Overall it is good but the faculty teaching quality is same as all other government colleges.
Placements
Placement has been very good and constant over the years. Alumni base is also very strong.Students have constantly bagged top jobs, mostly in India. The best branch is obviously CSE, with last year's placement average going to 16 lpa.
Value-for-money
My course was not expensive as it is a government college. On top of that you can avail various state scholarships to basically study for free. The education is totally worth every penny.
Campus Life
There's multiple clubs for hobbies and interests. The campus has all the facilities to play sports which are regularly maintained.

With a gigantic 647 acres area,covered by a lavish greenery, the campus of NITR is situated right at the junction of hills of Rourkela.The campus is embellished with numerous and rapid development happening in all nook and concerns of the institute making it more enhancive.NITR is equipped with all the modern amenities like:Biju Patnaik central library,computer centre,hostels(7 boys',2 girls'),cafeteria,BBA,PPA auditorium.It has 180mbps internet speed, wi-fi connectivity,e-classes in campus.
Academics
I am in btech 1st year of mining engineering.Quality of teaching is excellent in NITR.Yes,whatever I am learning here is really going to bright my future and I am pretty sure of this.NITR has consistently won top awards and has always been ranked among the top technical institutes of the country,including IITs and NITs.Recently it was 2nd among all NITs and 15th among all technical institutes in India by MHRD.NITR offers a plethora of choices to its students in field of btech,barch,sci.,arts etc
Placements
Training and placement centre is responsible for placements ,training and internships at NITR.The placement centre head,staff and students representatives handle various crucial tasks in the office like reaching out to companies, executing placements related activities carrying out all official communication with recruiters and students.The placement records serve as a testament to the abilities and potential of the students of NITR.Year after year,the placements at NITR keep increasing.
Value-for-money
As I am from general category so I have paid Rs.1,25,000 during my admission(including admission fee and other charges).fee structure varies with different casts so it seems a little biased to me but somehow I feel that I am getting my money's worth because there is everything in NITR campus which I have thought for a perfect place.
Campus Life
647acres campus is embellished with numerous and rapid development happening in all nook and corners of the institute making it more enhancive.students are engaged in various activities.The institute offers excellent opportunity to the students to participate in recreational and creative activities through its students' activity centre(SAC) which intends to serve as the nerve centre of all student activities in campus.Innovision,Nitrutsav and cosmopolitan are some fest organised in NITR.
Anything Else
NITR streches way beyond the classroom teaching and assignments.The presence of various student committees club ensure the honing of the abilities and skills of the students in various fields.Skill sets such as people management,team work,leadership qualities and exposure to real life situations bring students face to face with problems and solutions of everyday life.An engineer is after all problem solver and this forms the overriding ideology in shaping the minds here at NIT Rourkela.

Yes we have all the necessary equipment, facilities and the infrastructure here is really good. We have different buildings for different activities like student activity centre, training and placement building,halls etc. We have two separate buildings for classroom.We have separate buildings for all the departments.Our classroom is well equipped with lan connection, projector.The overall environment is so clean and filled with greenery and the mess food is hygienic but it sucks.
Academics
I am pursuing B-Tech CSE here because of my interests in machine learning and AI.The professors here are knowledgeable but they don't know how to teach.Some are really good and can make you feel the subject while others are here just for their duty to teach. Yes i think my curriculum is updated.
Placements
The placement here is well for upper branches like cse,ece,ee,mech but for lower branches it's not good enough.The percentage of students placed here is close to 85%.The highest package offered was around 42 lakhs last year from ECE.The average placement is around 13-14 lakhs for cse.The placement process was really nice and quite interesting.The professors were there to help us.
Value-for-money
It costs around 2 lacs per year but it does offer scholarships facilities like you have to pay one- third the amount of tuition fee if your parents income is within range stated by the college. I do feel like all of this worth it because it doesn't only make us tech grad but also helps us in holistic development.
Campus Life
Like i said earlier our campus is full of greenery having mountains around it.As one of the largest campus in india it has different facilities to offer like dispensary,grocery,bank, stadiums, separate buildings for different departments.We have clubs of different types be it literary,technical or cultural.The student professor bond is quite strong,we do have profs who really help us.Our campus is located far away from city which is sometimes awful as we have to travel quite a distance.
Anything Else
Overall our college is quite good and worth joining for despite of the crummy 85% attendance here. The college offers wide range of engaging activities for overall development.We have two one of the biggest fests of North-East region cultural and technical.You will have a new family here far from your home.

National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, has one of the best infrastructure in India. It is far better than most IITs. Each branch has its own department and classrooms are well maintained. Recently the new acadamic block was opened and arrangements are made to shift acadamic offices to new building. The pavements are hygenic and the best part is that the institute is suitable for those who obsessed with nature. The academic area is full of greenery.
Academics
I am studying Mechanical Engineering, B.Tech degree. The quality of teaching is good, but we cannot say that it is outstanding. But the interesting part is NIT Rourkela, is known for its faculty who have an awsome background in research. Coming to the curriculum, we are being taught various softwares which will be very helpful in professional carrer.
Placements
The placements are decent and the best package offered in 2018-19 was 40 lakhs, and for software job. Coming to mechanical engineering 80-90% has been placed. Major draqback is transportation, the officials of companies were unable to cause there is only railway acceess, and no need to mention about the punctuality of Indian Railway, though there is private airport. The placement process was easy and pleasent.
Value-for-money
For a normal candidate the fee is around 2lakhs(per year), if you have OBC reservation you have to pay around 70,000(per year). I feel that the college management is doing its best to prove its worth. There is some problem with mess food, but it will there for one or another since IITs, NITs have students from every state around India, and we have to compromise in case of food.
Campus Life
Campus is nice, when I enter into the college I fell in love with campus at the very moment, being from village I love greenery the most, so its quite obvious. Fests are really amazing part in engineering student life. There is always one or other event going on in the institute throughout the year. And we can enjoy every part of it. The professors are very supportive and provide guidence regarding future. They care the most. College has its own dispencery, and very near to hospital.
Anything Else
NIT Rourkela, club culture is one of the best in India. For each activity there is around 2 to 3 clubs. And we are free to join whatever the club we want irrespective of our department. And if you are interest in research field NIT Rourkela is the best option though you are joining B.Tech.

Few equipments are here but faculties are not well in teaching as well as behavior with students. Overall NIT ROURKELA is great for other branches like B. Tech,Integrated etc . LAN connection is already given in the hostel room and in Department Wi-Fi activated. Food also hygienic its depend on Hostel to Hostel mess. Living spaces also avg. Clean.

Very bad condition about placement for our Department specifically in M. Sc Applid geology. B. Tech is perfect for any purpose. Sometimes one or two out of 23 or 25 or 17 get placed. Actually here Master degree is like a secondary course so administrators have not interested in this activity. HOD is not capable of this post but even though its happen here.
Value-for-money
Fees are very high per semester 40K and For 1st semester It is usually 58K.But as much fee they dont give all facilities.I am not satisfied with this institute with respect to fees and their facilities.
Campus Life
Campus life is very good different types of activities being happen during every year. Intra hall competition in different games. Dispensary is also good and their collaboration with high facility of Hospitals. Always a ambulance is ready for any emergency.

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 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!

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.

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.

It is a good one. The infrastructure is too good. The campus scenic views steal everyone's hearts. Coming to the cons.. The town doesn't have an airport,making it not possible for bigger companies to visit for placements. The placement record isnt that good. The attendance system is a bit strict. The academic syllabus needs to be optimised for each branch. But the studying environment is good. Club culture and everything is good too. But overall its good. I like it.

NIT Rourkela helps every student to realize their dream and passion. well I would like to speak about placement scenario especially. Our institutes is one of the very few colleges which has dual degree option. So placement scenario for dual degree is very bad especially for students in departments like metallurgy, chemical, mining etc. Other than that every opportunity provided by this institute to its students is excellent

It provides a good platform to start any sort of work and gives a good referential aspect but it also has the most hectic curriculum and less time for the students. Infrastructure is good and a peaceful serene, professors are good with a lot of experience and stuff. Overall it's a good institute but can be made better with its curriculum and way of the exam pattern to keep up with this changing world.

The best facility provided by my college is the infrastructure.One out of twenty faculty are so strict that it would be a nightmare to pass that particular course.The academic schedule is pretty comfortable but one thing which is to be highlighted is the jogging exercise where the distance should be reduced.

This 1200 acre campus promises a very eventful and memorable years of it long after you leave it. The strict attendance and grading system does not let one get any loose with his/her scholastic duties. At the same time it has over 100 clubs at which you can invest for your other interests.
