ACADEMICS & FACULTY
6/10

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.


CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS
8/10

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.

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. 

 


INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION

There are 8 Boys and 5 girls hostels on the campus. About 97% of the total college strength are hostelers. Students in 1st year are offered Shared rooms of 3, in 2nd year you are offered for a choice of shared rooms of 2 or individual rooms. The hostels are average in quality, but you do face Water Shortage and Power Cuts once in a while. The hostel fees including food amount to 30000 Per Semester. There are no PGs near the college and students don't prefer them because of the busy schedule. 

The food in college canteens is not that great. There are other eateries on campus and some cater the need of the night. The food delivery is done to the hostel and they remain in operation till 3 AM. 

The classrooms are equipped with Projectors, Charging Sockets, WIFi connection as well. There is a campus WiFi and students need to login the portal to use it.
