Our college has excellent faculty members who shape the industry.
Placements: In our college, almost 85% of students are placed. The highest salary package offered is 24 LPA. The lowest salary offered is Rs. 20,000 per month and the average salary offered is Rs. 24,000 per month to Rs. 35,000 per month. Top roles offered are textile design, fashion design, accessory design, digital work, etc.
Infrastructure: Wi-Fi doesn't work most of the time. The infrastructure for the course is good. The library has a lot of useful research books and fashion magazines. There are many computer labs. The hostel is congested though. The room is supposed to be for 2 students but has 3 students in it.
Faculty: All our teachers are well qualified and knowledgeable with very good teaching qualities. The Jury is the main event that helps prepare us for the upcoming industry. Semester exams are stressful but with proper time management, all of you can score your best.
Other: I chose this course because I am interested in designing, printing, and making new doodle designs. I get to learn everything from scratch about making different types of textiles. This course excites me. There are scholarships and extracurricular activities available.

Review of National Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore.
Placements: Average companies visit our college to recruit students. The highest salary package offered is 6.5 LPA. Students who score an 8.5 CGPA are eligible for placements.
Infrastructure: Our college provides average facilities. The Wi-Fi facility is not good. Classrooms are old. They provide sports and games facilities. A playground is not available in our college. The college should improve.
Faculty: The jury system in college may not be the best idea as it could negatively impact students with low self-esteem. Jury members claim that their criticisms are for our benefit and future success. Their harsh words can be hurtful and sometimes inappropriate. Therefore, it's important to consider alternative methods of evaluation that do not rely solely on a jury system.

Our college needs genuine Improvement.
Placements: Almost 80% of the placements are provided in this course. The highest salary package offered was 6 LPA and the lowest salary package offered was 3 LPA. Companies like Infosys, Nalli, H&M, Nalli, etc., recruit students from NIFT Bengaluru. Companies look for skills that are taught in photography, stylish, and a visual merchandising during the course.
Infrastructure: The Wi-Fi hardly works, and when it does, the connectivity is so less. The classrooms are so less technically equipped. The tables always hurt students, they and have caused a lot of bruises and bleeding. The hostel facility does not provide what it promises, and the rooms require renovation. Mess food is not up to the mark.
Faculty: Some teachers are worth the grind. They know how to carry the class and conduct lectures. While others do not understand how the course is about design and not art history. They teach what they want to and not what's relevant in the course. It is because of the attitude of some teachers that NIFT is not a college, it's a school. Semester exams are a lot of work but fun to do.
Other: I chose this course because of the less usage of papers and resources, and most of the things in our course are digital.

Our college has very good and experienced faculty members with top-notch infrastructure.
Placements: Most seniors I know have got job placements here after studying. Since the start of your semester is pretty difficult, the pressure starts and makes you well-equipped for the industry. The college has a graduation program that's considered semester 8, and they prepare you for jobs and placements.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure is right up there, with attractive visuals on every wall that catch the eye. The canteen food while is a little less on the quantity side, the quality side is off the charts. They have a cycle of meals, and on Fridays the current catering company offers a special meal, like ghee dosa, chappati, chicken, etc. The basketball court is my personal favorite part of the college along with this central amphitheater where most performances happen.
Faculty: Teachers are all people who have been previously in the industry. They have good experience and passion in their field. Most faculty members have worked in and out of the formal industry in their field of expertise. While very strict with their judgment they have made excellent students because without pressure there can't be diamonds.
Other: Events and extra curricular activities all start in January. The variety of events are spectacular and there are events from Pot painting all the way to battle of the bands. There are both inter-college and intra-college events.

Q:   Is the National Institute of Fashion Technology Bangalore Campus as good as the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Chennai?

A: 

National Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore

the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), we can see that both the colleges are good:

Placements: NIFT's placement cell offers a customised strategy to help students get positions in businesses they desire, rather than having to settle for haphazard small businesses. This guarantees that students have more say in the professions they choose.

 

The NIFT campuses are renowned for their excellent infrastructure, which captures the artistic spirit of a design college. However, there is potential for improvement in the hostel facilities, since some rooms may require repair and others may not always live up to expectations.

 

NIFT hires new instructors because the courses are changed every semester. However, these professors are experts in their industries, ensuring that students receive a high-quality education and supervision.

 

Other: gives excellent exposure and learning opportunities under the direction of professors who are highly knowledgeable and experienced in their specialised professions.

The National Institute of Fashion Technology, Chennai


Placements at NIFT Chennai:

Between 60 and 70 percent of students were placed. The lowest plan is about INR 200000 per year, and the top package can reach INR 600000. The most reputable employment agencies are based in Chennai. 80% of students secured internships. The top positions available in the course are fashion stylist, associate designer, and assistant designer.

 

Infrastructure: The campus is excellent as a whole. The architecture is fantastic, and excellent amenities are offered, such as air conditioning in every lab. The library is stocked with excellent literature, and the Wi-Fi is passably reliable. One of its main features is the hostel. Although the cuisine is not up to par, it is still tolerable and quite safe because a nurse is on duty around-the-clock. It is beautiful, extremely clean. We also have a gym, a football field, a basketball court, and a badminton court inside.

 

Faculty: The instructors possess excellent teaching strategies and high levels of qualification. Although I believe that the material may use some improvement, I believe that the way that kids are taught moulds them in the proper direction. Although there are no exams in Nift, there are juries, which require a lot of study. 50% of students pass the exam.

 

Other: Intense interest in fashion led many to choose this subject. This course's incredible exposure is its best feature. The workload placed on the students could be increased so they can do better work. They host fantastic festivals like Spectrum as well as several other events all year long.

According to me both the colleges are good you can choose any college according to your preferences for more details and information you can check shiksha.com

 

 

Q:   Which is the top course at National Institute of Fashion Technology Bangalore?

A: 

NIFT Bangalore offers a B.Des and B.F.Tech course with specializations in Textile Design, Fashion & Lifestyle Accessories, Knitwear Design, Fashion Communication and Fashion Design a duration of four years and postgraduate level of study for two years. Admission to the same is made on the basis of entrance exams conducted by the college itself.

There's no top course as such, all the courses are best in itself because they provide you with ample opportunities and great exposure to Fashion World.
