For an internship, you have to fight for yourself. TP office is not much of use. Most of the companies in campus recruitment are mass companies. Some companies are good but only a handful of people get into them. Rest goes in mass companies with a package of 3 LPA

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] + Master of Technology [M.Tech] (Computer Science & Engineering), batch of 2023 9/10

Admission to B.Tech is done on the basis of JEE Main followed by JoSAA counselling. For B.Arch, candidates are selected on the basis of NATA entrance examination followed by CoA counselling. 


Placement at NIT Hamirpur at good at computer Science department which in 2019 is 1.2 crore the highest and in 2018 was 62.5 Lacs. Talking about the average package as on the official site it was about 6.41 Lacs in 2016-2017 but has increased in 2017-2018-2019 but the actual figures are shown on the site. Taking about other branches after CSE placement is good at ECE branch Electrical, Mechanical. The lowest package offered is 3-5 Lacs by mass recruiter companies. As NIT Hamirpur is located in a hilly area so many companies try to avoid coming to campus for placement. The faculty here is very good and supporting.

Master of Technology [M.Tech] (Mechanical Engineering), batch of 2018 3/10

For PG in Mechanical engineering, you need a Bachelor\'s degree in mechanical engineering. To get admission in NITs or IITs in PG courses you need to crack GATE Exam. Based on your score you are allowed to fill preference for course and colleges in CCMT. The cutoffs can be seen at CCMT website for all the branches


There are two major fests here One is cultural fest Hillfair and another one is technical fest Nimbus. The overall life here sucks, it\'s one of my worst decisions to join here.


There are more than 20 hostels here. The atmosphere is great. Hostel fees are about INR 20000 per semester. Food cost INR 100 per meal. For infrastructure, it\'s one of the best.


College timing is 9 am to 5 pm. There is a biometric device for attendance. For the 2nd year, you will have only your dissertation work. Quality of teachers is below my expectations. Overall experience is bad.
