One of the finest place to study fashion.

Placements: Internships are mainly from garment manufacturing companies in Bangalore, Mysore etc. Students got placements according to their academic performance and professional skills. Garment industry is competitive than any other industry. NIFT students are exposed to industry from the start of their classes.

Infrastructure: We have unlimited Wi-Fi in the campus. Hostel is only for girls. We have Mac labs and labs for pattern making and garment construction. Library is available for 6 days a week. Online library is ther...

Our college provides a lot of knowledge, but the new course curriculum needs to be improved a bit.

Placements: Around 80% of the students from our course got placed through on-campus placements. The highest salary package offered in our course is 5 LPA, while the lowest salary package offered is 3 LPA. Top recruiting companies for our course are mostly export houses. Top roles offered in our course are print designers.

Infrastructure: Our department has all the required facilities like weaving labs, surface design labs and fabric testing labs. The quality of facilities provided in the hostel is average. Water coolers and...

If you want to be in the industry, then it is NIFT.

Placements: Placements in the college are fine as most of them get placements from the companies. Others mostly get placed at good companies. Any high-end brands don't visit the campus for placements. However, you can definitely apply for it individually, i.e., not through college but by your own merits. NIFT itself is a big name anywhere, so most people are looking to hire NIFT students in the industry. The salary package offered is not high, i.e., 3-4 LPA. But that's just the beginning, and the rest depen...

Great college with great opportunities.

Placements: The placements are fine. There is not much saturation in the industry. The industry is already filled with our alumni, and the companies will demand the students from the specialised backgrounds to work rather than hiring engineers. High profile companies hire the students. The packages are fine to start with.

Infrastructure: The college campus is small but is built beautifully. The campus is made in a spiral form and utilises the maximum area. The wall paintings are done by students every year. All the blocks a...

Overall, satisfied with the college.

Placements: Two years ago, placements were good as compared to the previous year. This time, around 75% students got placement. The maximum package offered to the students was 20 LPA, where the minimum was 1.2 LPA. Three start-up companies were there to hire the students. More than 12 labels visit for placements. Many established designer's brands also come here to hire. There is startup support also, for those who want to start their own startups.

The average salary for a Master of Fashion Management [MFM] is around INR 3 Lacs to INR 15 Lacs but this can be higher on the basis of experience and other factors. Don't dream of sky-high packages, though a few of them have managed to land a good placement though (11-14 LPA).
