Student Reviews

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Electronics & Communication Engineering), batch of 2018

The college has a rather congested daily routine with classes beginning as early as 8 AM to all through 5:30 PM. Hour-long classes with small breaks in between are quite tiresome and dull.

There are weekly quizzes conducted on a surprise basis however they come off as more of a shock instead. There are 2 internal assessment tests in the middle of the semester and account for half the final result.


The campus has a large student community involved in every activity that is possible to have. From gaming to astronomy to dramatics to fine arts, every kind of student group is available on the campus.

The campus holds two main student festivals, a tech fest and a cultural one. Both of these festivals are completely student-organized and provide great exposure to students in terms of learning and organizing by themselves. 

The college life after 5:30 PM is generally easy going with a vast options of activities to choose from. The student community is huge and it's hard to feel left out even if you have an extremely niche of interests. There's also a club solely for the purpose of watching movies. So there's something for everyone to do.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Automobile Engineering), batch of 2020

The daily routine followed in college is pretty chill actually. There's no fixed timetable every day for classes as the timings change every day. However a normal full day would be from 8 am to 5 30pm with 3 breaks in between, 10 am to 10 30am, 11 30 or 12 30pm to 1 pm or 2 pm and 3 pm to 3 30pm on some days.

The quality and method of teaching is really good with optimal use of projectors and blackboards, with lots of labs.

I would say that the overall experience is great in college, with a variety of facilities offered to students


There are a number of different clubs on campus and they hold recruitments every semester for interested students. There are technical as well as non technical clubs. The various technical clubs are, Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), Robotics club, Formula racing club, Offroad racing club, Rover club, Artificial satellite club etc. The various non technical clubs were, dramatics club, dance club, music club, arts club etc.

There are 2 main fests that occur in campus, Techtatva and Revels

Techtatva is a technical fest where colleges around India come to participate in various events held by our college. There are events like RC car racing, drone racing, Battlecar wars, obstacle courses etc

Revels is a non tech fest where colleges come to  participate in events held by college. There are events like Battle of the bands, Dance competitions, singing, memory games etc.

The life in Manipal is really chill. Since it is a student town, it is filled with a young crowd and you get a lot of freedom to do whatever you want. The rules are not strict at all, especially if you stay outside campus.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Information Technology), batch of 2021

The basic class timings is from 8am to 5:30pm. There are breaks after two consecutive classes and lunch breaks, classes are scheduled 6 days a week and vary wrt to time table. A minimum of two half days is observed in the timetable. The faculty is experienced and learned and extremely supportive. The campus atmosphere is very friendly and supportive and prioritizes student safety and well being. Infrastructure is top notch and course currriculum is regularly updated.


There are more than 150+ student clubs in MIT manipal which include non technical clubs like dramatics, dance, music, arts, debate etc, techincal clubs like IECSE, IEEE, AISTE, AIESEC etc and student projects like Formula manipal, MRM, TMR which are all renowned in their fields. Students are free to join as many clubs each of which helps in their personal growth. Most of these clubs have events of their own like the plays put on by the dramatics clubs or acoustic nights by MAFIA. Other than these the two main college fests are Tech Tatva and Revels where colleges from all over india come to participate in various events. 

The college celebrates all major festivals by making arrangements in the hockey/football ground and all students and faculty are invited. A sight to behold is the diwali celebration where instead of lighting firecrackers everyone releases fire lanterns into the sky and the entire night sky is filled with lanterns drifting away. The college life is energizing and fun and teaches us how to be independent. 

Master of Technology [M.Tech] (Electrical Engineering), batch of 2018
  • The Assignment quality is very good helps us to solve real time problems class timing varies fro8 am to 7pm. Per day four hours class will be there. Remaining time need to spend in labs

  • There are Two main festivals celebrated. Holi is one of the best happenings in the institute.
  • In general best College one can have to get grateful here
