My review about SVNIT is between very good & excellent as no one is perfect and all systems have voids to fill with good changes , Here in SVNIT we have a good environment, awesome hostel life, nice seniors and juniors all helping each other, it’s also famous for central canteen here you can get the food at nominal rates, I have seen when any alumni comes in campus they first visits the central canteen . the campus is greener and much cooler than outside. After coming into the students’ council and closely understanding about administration of the institute, the problems College faced/facing (that’s a different issue of faculty recruitment) and areas in which still we can improve, I believe that in-spite of all the hurdles and other issues it has grown a lot in terms of infrastructure and intime of the students of 1st year, due to inspections by accreditation teams brought about a little more development because according to that only the institute will get required funding’s . Yeah I know when we will ask anyone about the institute who are at present studying, we all will have a lot of problems to say which is must to make changes & there is nothing in that. As changes don’t happen overnight, it take time to improve the things and make changes, and it is not impossible and YES there is lot to improve from sports, curriculum, few rules, and transparency of budget. Believe me the things that I have worked out during my tenure can be done in month or so, they are very clear and easily be implemented with little efforts. Institute needs a strong and clear director to handle the institute – & deal with so called its politics

Today I am sharing my college experience from beginning of joining the institute to till now.. I am 3rd year student of mechanical engineering student.. First of all I will share my experience on college life &infrastructure.. - NIRF ranking by MHRD-2016 in this SVNIT,Surat get 12 overall rank in India In engineering field.. U can take admission through jee-main. Here u can enjoy canteen,sports(but sports ground maintenances is very bad)but college is very supportive for taking participation in inter-year/inter nit/inter-university etc.. Our college also organises a sports fest-IGNIS in which many colleges are doing participate.. An annual techno-culture fest is the largest fest of Gujarat. It is organized by students committee.u will show ur management skill &technical skill. Most benefit of this college it is situated middle of Surat.u can reach easily everywhere where u the shopping mall, beach, daman, Mumbai, others... now my experience says that faculties of mechanical branch of this college is best in comparison to other NITs & some newly operated IIT..bcoz here all the lab facilities are available of each practical workshop,CNC machine,UTM,cryogenic lab..maybe above 10 lab.. Here 90% faculties are having doctoral degree(ph.d) from reputed universities of India & abroad..

I think SVNIT have best infrastructure in comparison of all others nit's. Campus of svnit is very beautiful and have good environment in it. There is not any pollution near the campus so it is good for healthy. I'm enjoying alot at here because I found svnit is best for me in any point of view. If we talk about placement in campus then average package in civil engineering is 5LPA and highest is 19lakh per annum(In BPCL) and lowest is 3.5LPA . IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING average around 6.5lpa and highest is 19LPA(IN BPCL) . IN computer engineering avg. 9lpa and highest 27lpa. Etc. And svnit hostel is very best and there is proper cleaning of hostel.

Questions related to SVNIT

Showing 509 out of 509 Questions

svnit seats for civil actually gets filled by which round? For 7th round cutoff is given to be 28k, will I get it for 25k rank?

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 26th Feb, 2020


Yes, if last year upto 7th round seat was alloted to 28k rank, then definitely you will get it by 5th round for 25k. The seats of civil branch of many of colleges doesn't fill up, there are always vaccines which are filled by special round.

So, don't worry, you will definitely get it. Hope it helps


does SVNIT gets filled for civil at round 1 or 2? Then online cutoofs show it to be of round 7. how will I come to know of actual cutoff then

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 26th Feb, 2020


See, how counselling are done-

In first round, all the ones who register are allotted some college on basis of rank. But when asked to report many of are not able to take admission because of like taking drop, getting some other college like BITS, their seats remains vacant. In second round the seats of other students are upgraded due to their vacation and choice and for left over seat are alloted to fresh candidates.  Similarly, same thing happens in further subsequent rounds.

So, don't worry in case of cutoff we look for 7th round and not the first round. You will get the civil engineering in surat.

Hope it helps


There are various rounds in Josaa. But the cutoff mentioned on career360 is not roundwise...the cutoff for svnit civil is 28k, and I got 25k(aprox) will I get it...or is this 28k according to 7th round of Josaa?

Vikas gehlot 26th Feb, 2020

Yes if you get 25000 rank then you will get a college which closes at 28000. Ranks are mentioned based on the last round of counselling because they are the highest rank in terms of closing rank therefore last round ranks are the final ranke if you want to check for the possible colleges.
