Review of my college #Nitc.
Placements: 50% of students are from their home state, and 50% are from other states. The highest package is INR 40 lakhs, and the average package is INR 5 lakhs. The top companies are Oracle, etc. 70% of students are placed in internships. In my course, many core jobs will come from the petroleum and paper industries.

Food is not that good in a mess. Rooms are very small; in the first year, we used to accommodate five people in one room. And medical facilities are there but not that good. Sports and games are okay.
Faculty: Here at our college, we are ranked 5th in the NIRF ranking for teaching. Teachers are well knowledgeable and they are PhDs, so their overall teaching quality is good. The course curriculum is not that helpful in engineering life. Yes, the semester exams are very difficult at our college. And here the pass mark is decided by the toppers papers and average mark; not a specific mark is there for pass.
Other: For my JEE Main rank, I got this chemical engineering so I opted for it. Many intentions and teachers are good and facilities are good. They introduce the correct and useful curriculum. Here, fests are not as good as expected. Sometimes college is canceling our fests too and postponing their dates.

The best thing about various electrical systems and technologies, as well as the chance to work on hands-on projects, is that there are many great things about my course, but there are a few areas that could be improved. For one, there could be more focus on practical applications and industry connections. Additionally, the campus surroundings could be more vibrant and conducive to learning. There are many events and extracurricular activities available on campus that could help enhance the overall experience. There is an annual cultural fest 'RAGAM' and a technical fest 'TATHVA' that is celebrated.
