One among the top NITs of India.
Placements: The placements in the Electronics and Communication Branch at NITK were good for the academic year 2023-2024. The highest package was 54 LPAs. The average package was around 20 LPA. The roles offered to ECE graduates are associate engineer, networking engineer, technical engineer, etc.
Infrastructure: The boys hostels are separately situated from the girls hostels. All the hostels are equipped with all the basic facilities. There is a good wi-fi connection in each and every hostel, along with an Ethernet socket in each room. The mess food is average and you will definitely get bored after 2 or 3 years.
Faculty: The faculty members of the ECE department are good. They have sound knowledge of their core field. They actually do help all the students with real-time projects. They are always available for students to help them solve their doubts and guide them. It makes students industry-ready.

Review by Sneha Singh, NITK ECE.
Placements: 99 percent of eligible students get placed at the ECE branch. The highest package is 51 lacs per annum and the lowest package is 8 lacs per annum; these are CTC. The average is 24 lacs per annum and the median is 20 lacs per annum. Top recruiting companies are Texas Instruments, Nvidia, Qualcomm, JIO, Wall Smart, Cisco, Microsoft, Airtel, Google, Wells Fargo, Amazon, Citi India and many more companies that visit for recruitment. Around 70 percent of students get internships at these companies only. Top roles are software-developer, analysts and core engineers in the core field.
Infrastructure: In the first year, students are allotted triple-sharing rooms with a separate bed and table, with only one fan in the room. From the second year on, they get single rooms or double sharing. Wi-fi is available on the entire campus. The labs are well maintained and well equipped with all instruments. We have two libraries: one is the central library and the other is the e-library. Mess food is hygienic and its eatable taste is also good. Food courts and night canteens are also available on campus. All sports facilities and gym facilities are also available on campus.
Faculty: Professors are helpful and they completed their degrees from reputed colleges or universities inside India or outside India. Teaching quality is good and well balanced between labs and theory classes. Yes, this course is highly relevant to the communication, telecommunication and circuital industries and makes students industry-ready. It is not too difficult too pass the semester exam if you are attending the class regularly and the passing percentage is mostly 20 percent of total marks but it varies based on class performance or paper difficulty level.
Other: I chose this college due to its NIRF ranking and placement records for the course. It is truly based on our physical world, technology and telecommunications, and is mostly practical. I want some upgrades to the curriculum of the course. Incident and Engineer are the two major fests of the college. The campus is not too crowded and connected to all modes of transport and the nearest bus stop and taxi are available from the campus. Various types of scholarships and financial aid are available in the college based on the economic condition of the student's family.

Circuital analysis of my college.
Placements: The placement of the ECE branch at NITK is actually good compared to other NITs. The highest package for the academic year 2023 was 54 LPA. The average package was around 20 LPA. Most of the students get placed in core jobs. But many of them get jobs in the software field as well.
Infrastructure: The hostels are just okay. They are not high-class furnished and fully deluxe. There are all the basic facilities available in the hostels. Each student is given one table, one coat, one chair, one Ethernet socket and all the basic facilities.
Faculty: Faculty members of the ECE department are a bit more strict. There is so much project work, along with weekly lab assignments. Students remain involved in them most of the time. The semester exams are moderate if someone studies from the very first day of the semester.

My first review of NITK college.
Placements: In the past 3–4 years, the placements at NITK have been mind-boggling. This year, due to the recession happening in many companies, it fell a little. This year, the highest package was 54 LPA. The average package was 24 LPAs. Almost 50% of students got internships.
Infrastructure: Since the college was established in 1963 as KREC (Karnataka Regional Engineering College), its infrastructure is quite old. But all the new buildings that are being constructed now are full of all the facilities. The old building are also equipped with all the facilities, like good lab, wi-fi, etc.
Faculty: The faculty members are good. There are some guest faculty members who teach at an agreement. The course curriculum was designed in 2018 and it has only been continuing since then. The semester exams are not so difficult. One can get good marks just by studying one night before the exam if he/she pays attention in the class.
