The College life here is okay-okay types. The College have some average infrastructure and a handful of some good faculties. The college doesn't give itself much exposure to industries and all because of its remote location. The College is established meanwhile in a temporary campus due to unavailability of a good land in the state. Due to the shortage of space and the uneven terrain, we can not have some efficient machines being installed over here. The college is awesome if you have the capability to enjoy yourself and have some real scenic beauty around it. It's located in the chest of mountains and the weather here is COLD though it rain very often over here. Summarising, if you want to learn practical way or have a more practical knowledge than theoretical then it won't be worth else this NIT would not be the that bad choice.

I can say heart fully that NIT Sikkim is worst college offering B.Tech, with the poorest faculty, for example, one of the faculties of computer science department don't even know what HDMI cable is?? Students of NIT Sikkim were being taught by such faculty. There are many incidents and examples which explain how poor faculty NIT Sikkim is having.

I really liked the area in which the college is situated. It is very beautiful and you can take short trips on weekends. The college it self is very good. Faculty are good. Infrastructure is fine. Placements are also great. If you have this option, you should consider taking it. I did not have any bad experiences in the college during my course.

how is nit sikkims cse branch?

varun rathore Student Expert 29th Jul, 2019

Hello Darshan,

Nit sikkim is not good for CSE branch as it is located on the extreme east and there are not many companies visiting for placements. I would recommend you to look fir other colleges as they may be better option to you.

I hope you will find my answer helpful. 

All the best 


Please rank nit Sikkim, nit arrunchal ,nit manipur,nit mizoram and nit nagaland for cse.

Aratrika Sarkar Student Expert 29th Jul, 2019


It will go like this - 

1. NIT Arunachal Pradesh

2. NIT Sikkim

3. NIT Nagaland

4. NIT Manipur

5. NIT Mizoram.

Best of Luck.

Hope this helps.



When classes starts in North east nits like nit Sikkim, nit arrunchal Pradesh, nit manipur?

Sourav Chaini Student Expert 17th Jul, 2019
Hi satyam ,
In most of the nits college starts from 27 of july for the new comers in their respective institutes but for seniors the start dates are varied for different national institute of technology.
27 is not a exact date as nits varies with their convocation dates .

Hope it helps!!!

Which is better : nit manipur cse or nit Sikkim cse?

Nimrat Kaur Student Expert 17th Jul, 2019


Well, the perspective differs from person to person.. According to my point of view NIT Sikkim would be a better choice for CSE branch.. 

The faculties are good and focus on providing quality education to the students.. Most of the Faculties are highly educated. 

The placements are good for CSE branch.. Also, famous companies like Microsoft, Intel, Infosys, Wipro, etc visit this college.

Overall, NIT SIKKIM would be a good choice among any other.

I hope this would help you. For further queries please feel free to write me down in the comment box. 


Nit sikkim is best or svu tirupathi for mechanical engineering

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 13th Jul, 2019

Hey there

If you are not looking just for nit tag then go for SVU Tirupati. Because if you compare both the colleges you will find that SVU Tirupati has much lower fees than nit Sikkim. Also nit Sikkim is an Eastern college and so cutoffs are low due to which it does not have that reputation than other nits. But it's up to you what you choose.

Check about SVU Tirupati

Good luck
