CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS

NITK Houses many exclusive clubs namely IEEE, ISTE, ACM, IET, IE, and Rotaract. The Student Welfare association monitors the functioning, budget, and Membership of these clubs. There are many other Student teams like FSAE, BAJA, SAE, Web Development Club, IRIS, Astronomy Club, Entrepreneurship Cell etc. There are around 50 Techincal and 50 Non-Technical Clubs in the campus.

The major festivals include 1 Technical and 1 Cultural Fest. The Technical fest is called Engineer which happens in the month of October and the Cultural fest called Incident in March. There is also a BIZWaves event held in February. There will be an inter NIT Sports event in any NIT. The college actively participates in other local sports events. The cultural fest is among the top in the country and has footfall of 30000 people from around the country. 

College life, in general, is fun as well as stressful. There are facilities to cater to one's needs but it is in the hands of the student to use it to the fullest. 

 


ACADEMICS & FACULTY

The classes are held for 5 days in a week, the timings are 8AM-5PM. The students get many projects, assignments from the professors in their department. The course demands 1 project and 2 assignment for every subject in a semester. 

The Students will have 2 Announced Tests, 2 Unannounced, 1 Mid and 1 End exam for every semester. They are evaluated and GPA of every student is calculated based on Relative Grading. 

The teachers use both Class Room teaching as well as Practical Labs during their course work. The Professors are very well trained and informative. 

My overall experience has been pretty good but there is always a room for improvement. The courses can be structured well and inter disciplinary courses can be offered. More Student-Teacher interaction can be implemented.
