9 /10

    • Academic daily routine schedule: Classes from 8 am to 6 pm each day. 2 tests per semester. 3 assignments per subject per semester. I also did 3 research Projects. Lab quizzes and MCQ based quizzes also take place for internal assessment. 75% attendance is compulsory. Strict actions are taken if the attendance of a student falls short of it in Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology.
    • Choice and relevance of available courses: All courses relevant to Industrial Applications for Mechanical Engineering.
      1. I.C. Engines
      2. Automobile Engineering
      3. Fluid Mechanics and Machinery
      4. Industrial Engineering
      5. Machine Design
      6. Manufacturing Science and Technology
      7. Heat and mass Transfer
      8. Engineering thermodynamics.
    • Quality and methodology of teaching: Great! By NIT Professors and the department is NBA Accredited too. Use of physical models for demonstration and a better understanding of the theory. Industrial visits happen too for better exposure to industrial needs.
    • Professor accessibility outside classes: Professors are readily available after the classes to get our doubts all cleared. Hence, a better understanding of the subject is possible.

Foreign Exhange & International Exposure
Know more
7 /10

  • Currently, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology doesn’t offer any foreign exchange programs. This is the "only" area where I think, our college lags behind and I believe that it will not be too far from now that this drawback will end and many Foreign Exchange Programs will be opened for the students of the college so that they get exposed to the different methods, cultures and techniques of other colleges from different countries.   
  • On an average, the number of students who travel annually for a Foreign internship is 10-15. The college gives the students the opportunity to apply for the most prestigious internships like S.N. Bose Scholars Program (U.S.), MITACS Globalink Internship Program (Canada), DAAD Internship Program (Germany), and other foreign internship programs.
  • Language(s) of teaching and language(s) spoken on campus: Many languages are spoken on the campus as the students belong to different parts of India and the World (US, UK, Middle East, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh). But generally, working language is restricted to English (and at times, Hindi too).

  • Availability of Bank loans and other financial aid options is one thing that really helps the financially weaker students to compete equally with other students of the college. Many types of education loans are available for students of the college. SBI bank has a specific education loan facility that it offers to the students here.
