Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management - [GITAM], Vishakhapatnam Review by Sayan

Overall Rating : 3 / 10

Written on 19 Apr 2015

Academics & Faculty
Know more
3 /10

Needs more practicality, versatility and broad-mindedness to be fit to be called engineering faculty. Many faculty members do not know proper english and therefore it implies it is closed for externals.

Foreign Exhange & International Exposure
Know more
1 /10

For Engineering there is no scope of International Exposure as the only perceived ROI is placements. Only conference tie-ups with various companies of India which happen to be mass recruiters. 

Fees & Scholarship
Know more
7 /10

Scholarship is not availed by more than 3% of students and generally seems impractical. However, bank loans are available from the Union Bank of India branch present inside the campus. 

Placements & Alumni Network
Know more
2 /10

Internship remains limited to companies selected by the faculty. Even, if the certification contains the words "Internship" and not "Industrial Training", it is rejected and again the person has to do an "Industrial Training" and not internship. 

Students apply to local branches of Companies. Companies do not come for internship recruitment.

Infrastructure & Transportation
Know more
1 /10

Varies from department to department. Wi-Fi is one of the fastest when it comes for institutional internet. Libraries are still functioning on backdated technologies and the biggest deadlock is given by the system of issuance of hall-tickets which, remains, to date very rigid, and remains vulnerable to certain misconceptions of the department heads, and their personal desires, which sometimes amount to violations of fundamental consumeristic rights. 

Hostels & Food
Know more
5 /10

Hostel Infrastructure is brilliant and peaceful. Food is also very good. However, the pricing structure is quite translucent. 

Clubs & Associations
Know more
3 /10

There are Professional Societies. There is good sports infrastructure in the university. However there is no single student association that can represent the students in case of certain attrocities or injustices committed by the university even if that is unintentional, thereby making the student vulnerable to even administrative mistakes of the university. 

Social Atmosphere
Know more
5 /10

Social Atmosphere is such that, even though there is no much support due to closed, conservative and medieval mentalities of the administration, the students learn from peers and given the internet, can do anything productive to the society.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering), batch of 2017 5/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY: Not very happy with the academic syllabus. It's like they're just trying to fill in the four year course with random useless topics.I'm sure I can cover the useful parts within an year outside. Just hanging on for the degree.
FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP: They do provide schorlarships, but lay about a hundred conditions in order to avail of it. About 3% of the students are eligible for scholarships. Pretty sure only about 0.1% actually avail of it, thanks to the pre-requisites.
PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK: One good thing about Gitam is that they do try and provide eveybody with jobs once we're done with the cours...
