Review of National Institute of Fashion Technology.
Placements: Since it is a new course that started in 2021, campus placements are not provided. First batch of students took part in a research dissertation project in their final year.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is satisfactory but the buildings need some renovation. Hostel rooms are good with double occupancy including two beds with no mattresses, tables, racks, and mirrored almirahs. There is an extra space above the almirahs for storing additional items.
Faculty: Faculty members in our college are knowledgeable, well-qualified, and experienced. They interact with every student. The course curriculum is helpful in multiple disciplines and is an ideal option for students interested in research-oriented careers in any field.
Other: I chose this course because it is a research-based course.

Theory based curriculum; good for people who want to go for research.
Placements: We are the second batch of M.Des. So, right now none of us are placed. Top roles could be visual designer, ui ux design, art curator, social designer, ux researcher, social media expert, brand strategist, trends forecaster, social entrepreneur, systems thinker etc.
Infrastructure: The master of design is a fairly new course. Classrooms have ACs, projectors and Wi-Fi. The hostel is decent, however there are no AC or cooler in the hostel. There is also strict curfew timings. The college campus is very small, and there is no proper ground for sports. We only have one basketball, and badminton court.
Faculty: The teachers are highly qualified professionals, and do enough for the students. The course is research and theory based, and there are not a lot of practical works.
Other: A pretty expensive course, but the exposure and the brand name is decent.

B.Des. in Accessory Design - Batch of 2025
3.8
4Placements3Infrastructure4Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life3Value for Money
It is average compared to other government design colleges, but far superior than the private ones.
Placements: Usually, people get good placements with a decent salary of around Rs.30000 - Rs.50000 per month. You also get many internship opportunities, especially after 3rd year, which trains you pretty well for the industry, and helps you build a strong portfolio.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure of the college is average with good architecture but not maintained. The hostel is available only for girls. The campus is big enough and has enough capacity to host good events. The only place the college lacks is the hostel facilities and there is always a rush to the mess.
Faculty: Faculty members and curriculum are good in our college. They provide lots of learning opportunities and good resources. We don't have exams, but rather project submissions which give us a more hands-on learning experience. Assignments also require extensive research and working with teams. So it's a pretty professional environment.
