Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech], batch of 2016

The earliest that a class starts is 8:30 am and depending on the no. of classes end timings keep varying. Each class is for 50 min.

We have 2 cycle tests and one final exam. During the course of the semester, you will be given plenty of assignement to work on.

I wouldn't say the quality of educaion is great, it is average, although we have some great professors.

Overall experience is simply amazing, This college is goin to teach you lot, not just stuff related to studies but other things like, how to be self reliant, strong, street smart, in short it is going to prepare you for the world out there.


There is literllay a club for everthing that you want to do, be it dancing, singing, designing, martial arts, acting, sports, debating, environmental care, management, Magazine and now we have our own radio station too etc. we have them all. The most notable would be the Dance Club, Music Club, the teams working for festivals, The Design team. I was part of the NIT Design Team, the Feeds Magazine (Monthly College Magazine) and a social responsibility group.

Cultural Fest- Festember (Ranked as one of  the top 10 cult fest in India.

Technical Fest- Pragyan (Again ranks as one of he top 10 tech fest in India.

More than this we have workshops and fests organised by various clubs in the campus. The best part of all this is that, everthing is organised by the students, even the cashflow.

Life in college is amazing, the best one I've ever got till now.

Master of Computer Applications [M.C.A], batch of 2018

The classes schedule is very flexible and suited to students needs.

In NIT Class timings are usually from 9:30 am in the morning until 12 in the noon. The labs are conducted from 2pm to 4 pm once a week.

The  Quality and method of teaching similar to normal government college i.e Highly Paid faculty but poor teaching skills.

As far as my overall experience in  this college is concrened I'll say if want good placements,good alumni network  and NIT Degree stamp come here but don't expect to much from the faculty you have to learn by yourself only.


The main fest in NIT is Cultural-Festember,Tech-Pragyan, Management-NITTFEST

The college life in NITT is very nice i.e free of restrictions and filled with liberties to learn new, wonderfull and amazing things

  • Class timings are pretty much normal, starts from 8:30am, one hour lunch break, may go on up till 5pm if you have lab. But since most of the students are hostellites, rescheduling happens often. Quality of teaching depends a lot on your department. Only few professors are really good.
  • Recently, there has been some experimentation with flip class rooms and flexible method of teaching and evaluating. Nothing is spoonfed, you need to find your niche and grow. 
  • Clubs and associations are the life of this college. The main fests are -culfest Festember and techfest Pragyan. Besides this you have the Dance troupe, Music troupe, Robotics and machine intelligence club, Third dimension (aeromodelling club), Spider (R&D club), PSI racing, Balls by picasso (Lit club) and many more. All the instances you quote in your interviews stating how good a teamplayer you are or how hardworking you are stems from working for these clubs.
