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.

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.

It is a hub of talented and accepting students.

Placements: Placements for FC in our college are good at least better than many private colleges. The highest salary package offered is around 12 LPA. The top recruiting companies vary vividly because students either sit for on-campus placements or apply off-campus, and it all depends on the connections students make over the years, so keep students' senses open and do not leave any opportunities that come in their way.

Infrastructure: It provides everything related to our course available in this college. It is for printing that students have to go to the nearby shopping place but its no big deal because the place is not that far. In other departments since my friends are there in FD and TD and AD, they face issues at times finding materials which they do not find near the college in Gandhinagar and have to travel to Ahmedabad. Our library is diverse and there are a lot of books regarding our course available. The food served...
