Placements: CSE branch in IIT BHU has 100% placements with an average salary package of about 25 LPA. The highest salary package offered is 1.5 crores per annum for foreign and about 65 LPA in case of domestic.

Infrastructure: The main building of CSE and MNC is nearby and it is just good in terms of infrastructure. Although labs are air-conditioned and have high-speed Wi-Fi, and the building is somewhat old. But it's quite satisfactory. The library is very good and has a peaceful environment and is air-conditioned, and has Wi-Fi connectivity. Almost all the books required during college are there in the library. Classrooms are a bit unsatisfactory as they get very warm during summer due to the absence of air-conditio...

But giving it a try, IIT BHU is a very old institution and it has been offering the course since 1919, the department is well-established and reputed. Mechanical is a core branch, which also favors it. BITS has its own reputation, there is not much difference. You can go for anyone, both are equivalent in my view. If you are interested in the IIT tag, join IIT BHU. Otherwise, it is your preference, the job opportunities don't differ much.
