The pros and cons of NIFT Chennai.

Placements: Placement is fairly good. Almost 90% in accessory design. It depends on the student's caliber and portfolio rather than grades. Some of the courses struggle in placements but a good portfolio really helps. Companies are not very high paying initially. Maximum average packages are around 4.5 to 5 LPA.

Infrastructure: The building's structure is really beautiful, campus is small and cosy. The new girls' hostel is nice. The old hostel within the campus is pretty bad. Labs are nicely equipped. Hostel food is nutriti...

Great infrastructure and facilities, okay faculty members, placements are also okay.

Placements: Students apply for placements towards the end of the final semester. They can register for placements in as many nift campuses as they want and the companies will vary with each campus. Your portfolio will decide what kind of company you get. One must be alert in placements or they could end up in what is basically a salesperson job. The average placement packages ranges from 3-4 Lacs pa. With regards to internship it is advisable to look for your own company to intern at according to the kind o...

An outstanding campus architecture and exciting college crowd as well as diverse atmosphere.

Placements: The placements take place in the same venue, i.e., NIFT campus, where one can showcase their portfolios. The companies which normally come for placements include Flintobox, Titan, Reliance, etc. The average salary offered to the students was about Rs 30,000 per month.

Infrastructure: The NIFT, Chennai campus is one of the unique campuses in India. It is inspired by a Rubik's cube. The campus walls stand out of the concrete jungle surrounding, with its colourful outlay and angular architecture. Apart from that, the campus is equipped with Wi-Fi (free) as well as a resource centre with the latest fashion magazines, books and materials for studying. Although the labs aren't that equipped, as compared to other campuses the labs are workable. The classrooms have full CCTV cover ...
