Academics & Faculty

7 /10

  • The time table of my mechanical engineering department was well planned. It was never a hectic full tight back to back lectures schedule.
  • In Maharashtra Institute of Technology some professors were extremely intelligent and had an in-depth knowledge of the subject, they were good at guiding us in career decisions too.
  • The electives offered were completely future-oriented industry relevant subjects and faculty was also available to teach those subjects.
  • Lectures were not held regularly that I think is the main drawback and it should be made a bit strict in terms of lecture attendance.
  • Tests and assignments should be given more weight in viva.

  • My tuition fee was paid by the government, I needed to pay only the development fees and university exam fees.

Placements & Alumni Network
Know more
9 /10

  • I think internship opportunities offered to my program from Maharashtra Institute of Technology was limited, only those who had contacts in the industry or references could make it to a summer/winter internship.
  • Placement cell is quite active and many companies came to campus for recruitment like Mahindra & Mahindra, atlas Copco, Halliburton, Shangdong, mu sigma, cognizant, JSW etc.
  • Average salary figures are around Rs. 2 to 2.5 lakhs/annum.
  • But a very few were placed in these big giants. Out of a batch of 200 students I think only 50 are placed (off and on campus included), i.e just 25% are placed.
  • The alumni network is huge.

Infrastructure & Transportation

8 /10

  • No transport facility is available at Maharashtra Institute of Technology but the infrastructure is well maintained and developed.
  • Labs, libraries, classrooms all well maintained.

Hostels & Food
Know more
7 /10

  • During the four years, for the first two years, I opted for a ladies hostel of college which was not inside the campus but a couple of km away from campus. College had two girls hostel inside the campus with mess facility available.
  • The quality of food I felt was okay at Maharashtra Institute of Technology. The only problem was if opted for any girls hostel we had to compulsorily subscribe to the mess facility.
  • The hostel in which I lived was well maintained, regularly cleaned and had spacious rooms.
  • The rest of the two years I opted for off-campus housing in which I chose 1 and 2 BHK apartments. The rents were between Rs. 2 to 4K.

Clubs & Associations

10 /10

  • MIT was very supportive in extracurricular activities. It had a recreational hall and a gym inside the campus in which facilities to play carrom, table tennis, and other indoor games were provided.
  • Also, there's a huge playground for outdoor games inside the campus only.
  • MIT holds a national level sports event known as SUMMIT every September of the year.
  • Additionally, college annual social gathering also takes place every year during early weeks of January.
  • My college also organizes the Indian Student Parliament every year and National level technical event TEXEPHYR.

Social Atmosphere
Know more
8 /10

  • MIT had vibrancy in its student ethnicity. There were students from different cities, states, and countries with different castes, creed, and religion. As there are a number of Maharashtrian/ Marathi students in the college, I felt, there are linguistic differences among students.
  • North Indian students are also not equally happy with the local population as they are not treated and seen equally as Maharashtrian students.
  • Alcohol and cigarettes are completely banned inside the campus.

  • Academics is good at Maharashtra Institute of Technology but the faculty is not so good. Most of them are under-qualified to be a teacher at high school. My department did not have even a single professor who had Industrial experience.
  • The placement department in Maharashtra Institute of Technology is very active and has long-term contracts with some good companies but due to bad faculty, most of the students are not eligible for the placements. Those who are eligible do get placed.
