College life at this college is very good.

Placements: The architecture course doesn't have any placements, so you must search for placements on your own. The training and placement cell might help. Batchmates got placed in various firms all over the country. Depending on performance, few students who joined as interns continued as junior architects.

Infrastructure: We share the same hostels with multiple colleges on the MIT campus, but all hostels are well-constructed. They are lively, and there are several student centres. The college is currently a part of the en...

Our college provides good faculty members and infrastructure.

Placements: Since it's an architecture college, students usually opt to work under other firms. But in Manipal School of Architecture and Planning, you get a good experience and also with great faculty members and seniors. It makes it easier. Most of the alumni have their firms in large cities while others work for big firms.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of the college is very good. They are going to shift to another building after a few years. Hostels are very spacious and have all the facilities required, and hygien...

You have the key, do whatever you want with that.

Placements: There are no placements opportunities provided by the institution for architecture. However, students from our college have never failed to get into a good practice after college or during the course of the 1-year internship. Manipalites have a better chance of getting placed in practice in Bangalore due to its proximity to the college. There are students who try hard to get into cities like Mumbai or Ahmedabad, but the practices in these cities always give first preference to the students study...

University with a great infrastructure and learned faculty.

Placements: As of the end of 2016, there wasn't any placement drive conducted. Students applied for various firms on their own (working portfolio is taken into consideration) or continued in the firm they were working in, in the 9th and 10th semester internships. The highest starting salary (for jobs in India) was Rs. 25,000 pm while the lowest was Rs. 12,000 pm. All students join the new firm as junior architects and are usually given the responsibility of handling other interns in the firm, handling site ...

This is one of the best colleges with the best infrastructure and campus life. A beautiful place surrounded by a peaceful environment beaches around. We had the best time here. The place gives a great exposure and the best campus life as you tend to meet people from different places. Coming to academics, it totally depends on what you choose.

As you have scored 124 marks in the NATA exam and 80 in PU, so it will be difficult for you to get admission in Manipal University. Still, I will suggest you to participate in the counselling process wisely and smartly and wait till the last round of the counselling process.
Best of luck.
