The highest package in computer Science and engineering is INR 57 LPA, the median package is INR 29 LPA, the average package is INR 14.06 LPA and the lowest package is INR 11 LPA.

M.Tech. in Structural Engineering - Batch of 2022
5Placements4Infrastructure4Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life3Value for Money
The food was very awesome in taste.
Placements: The college has an excellent placement record. The college has a record of 90%-95% placement because a few of my classmates prefer to continue their education. The college administration and the placement council work well together to invite a wide variety of industries to the college for the job application process. The colleges the highest placement offer was around 47 LPA, and the median wage offer was around 15 LPA.
Infrastructure: The facilities provided in the room are that you have a B.Ed study table, and chair, an almirah, fan, and EAT installed, and shelves to keep the things. The meal quality is not that good, we expected better food according to the cost. The registration process is easy as you can choose the room according to your wish and tell your warden about it. In the girls' hostel, you have only a single seater room available whereas, in the boys hostel single seater, double seater, and triple seater rooms are available. The annual fee for a hostel room is around 2,30,000.
Faculty: The course is industry-based and the practical knowledge we got was enough to get a decent placement. Faculty members here are good but not up to the expectation. But students don't need to depend completely on faculty members. The course curriculum helps a lot as we did an internship for one year, which will be helpful to adapt to the industry. Students get the opportunity in the internship only and don't need to depend on campus recruitment. Class size is 66 and course fees is INR 111000 per year.

4Placements5Infrastructure4Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life5Value for Money
My honest review of M.Tech course in NITK.
Placements: Since the CDS branch is new to NITK, the placements for M.Tech. CDS students are moderate. The highest package for the year 2023 was 36 LPA. The average package was 19 LPA. The top recruiting companies were Adobe, DeShaw, Oracle, Microsoft, JPMorgan, etc.
Infrastructure: Previously the hostels allotted to the M.Tech students were in so poor condition. But the hostel which is allotted now is the best hostel of NITK. The hostel has triple sharing rooms with all the facilities and good infrastructure. The hostel building has 6 stories. There is no any mess in the hostel "Shivalik".
Faculty: Teachers are actually very knowledgeable. The course curriculum is quite relevant. The teachers pay pretty much attention on M.Tech students. They help them getting a good placement. The semester exams are quite hectic along with the assignments.

Review by Sharma (CSE 2025) NITK.
Placements: The placement percentage is 99.8 percent; this is the last year's data. The highest package is INR 58 lacs per annum, the average is INR 29 lacs per annum and the lowest is INR 10 lacs per annum. The top recruiting companies are Wells Fargo, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Oracle, and Citi India. Almost 80 percent of students got internships last year. The top two roles offered are software developer and manager.
Infrastructure: First-year students get triple-sharing rooms with separate beds and tables. The problem is that there is only one fan in the room. Wi-fi facilities are available on the entire campus. Labs are well maintained and the latest computers have highly built processors. We have two libraries: one is the central library and the other is the e-library. Mess food is hygienic and eatable. Food courts and night canteen facilities are available on campus. All sports facilities are available on campus, and the gym is also on campus.
Faculty: Yes, teachers are helpful and most of them are highly educated and have completed their Ph.D. from good colleges. Many of them are also doing research. Teaching quality is good and mostly practical-based. Yes, this course is highly relevant to the software industry and will prepare students for the industry. It is not too difficult to pass the semester exam if you are only attending the class regularly and follow the notes of professors only. Passing percentage varies between 20 and 30 percent overall.
Other: I chose this course because of the placement performance of the branch for the last four years. The best thing about my course is that it is purely technology-oriented and mostly software. I want to improve the old curriculum of the course according to the needs of the modern world. Incident and Engineer are the two important festivals of the college. The campus is not too crowded and is connected to all modes of transport. The nearest airport is only 15 kilometers away from the college. The railway station is only 2 km away from the college. Fee waivers are available on campus on the basis of economic conditions.
