It provides good placements and knowledgeable faculty. The infrastructure is quite not good.

Placements: Most of the students got placed but not in the core department. The highest salary package offered is 7 LPA, and the lowest salary package offered is 3 LPA. L&T is one of the top recruiting companies that visit our college for placements. Mostly, every student gets an internship here. Due to the pandemic, we have done our internship in the companies that we prefer.

Infrastructure: Some buildings in the college are good in infrastructure, but it has some old buildings. Especially, the hostel has very old building...

Placements are good, but you can get placed only if you have good knowledge.

Placements: I gained a lot of knowledge while studying at CIT. The placements are good, but they did not provide enough training for the students who attended the campus selections for the first time.

Infrastructure: The hostel is neat and clean. They have a good menu, and also, they provide a variety of dishes daily. The taste is not much good, but okay. There is no hostel for PG candidates. Our management provides rooms primarily to the BE first-year candidates.
