Review of Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology.
Placements: The program witnesses a placement rate of approximately 70-80% with diverse opportunities for students. The salary package ranges from the highest of 10 LPA to 3 LPA, with an average of 4 LPA. Notable recruiters include Reliance Industries, Tata Chemical, and Lupin. Around 50-60% of students secure internships in reputed companies such as GSK and R&D Labs, with prominent roles offered including Research Associate and Analytical Chemist.
Infrastructure: Our college has commendable infrastructure, providing students with well-equipped laboratories, spacious classrooms, and a comprehensive library. The hostel facilities meet satisfactory standards, offering decent dining options in both the mess and canteen. Medical services are readily accessible on campus, while various sports and recreational activities promote a well-rounded student experience.
Faculty: The evaluation system consists of two sessional exams and one end-semester exam, with lab assessments conducted separately. Each sessional exam carries fifteen marks, while the final exam weightage ranges from 50-60 marks, depending on the professors. Consistent class attendance typically ensures a minimum six-pointer, alleviating concerns about academic performance.
Other: I opted for this course as per my interest. Many students got scholarships from state or central government.

Review of the best college.
Placements: M.Sc. students become eligible for campus placements starting from the 4th semester of their programme. The top salary package offered typically reaches up to 700000 rupees annually. Many of the placement opportunities rise from educational institutions such as Unacademy, Byju's and similar companies. Personally, my aspirations involve pursuing a Doctorate in Chemistry.
Infrastructure: The accommodation is average but fall short of justifying it's 50000 rupees price tag. The washroom facilities are subpar, and the quality of food provided in the mess is below expectations with occasional instances of particularly poor meals. However, the breakfast options are generally acceptable. Fortunately, the process for registering for hostel accommodation is straight forward, all that's required is to ensure all necessary documents are provided.
Faculty: The Chemistry department boasts a faculty that is both supportive and highly qualified possessing extensive knowledge that enhances the overall teaching experience. The curriculum is carefully crafted to align with industry standards, effectively equipping students with the necessary skills and knowledge for professional success. While semester examinations present a moderate level of difficultly, they are considered fair with a passing percentage set at a reasonable level encouraging the students’ academic development.

The course curriculum was relevant. Two-semester exams were conducted in this college. Semester exams were difficult. If we studied properly, we would score good marks.

A student perspective of NIT Nagpur.
Placements: The percentage of students who got placed in my course is 80 percent. The highest package in civil engineering is 24 LPA. The lowest package is 6 LPA, and the average package is 8 LPA. The top recruiting companies are Google, L&T, SAP, Adani, and Adobe. For my course, internships are very rarely provided by campus; we have to apply on our own.
Infrastructure: Infrastructure is good. The campus has a size of 215 acres. Which contains hostels, a library, an academic building, laboratories, a health center, a sports complex, a cafeteria, and a gymnasium. Facilities in the hostel were not too good, but we had to adjust for each room. There are three members, so the room is not so spacious. Each student is provided a study table with a chair, a bed, and a cupboard. The food available in the mess is not too good, but the food in the canteens is good.
Faculty: The faculty at Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur, are highly qualified and knowledgeable enough to teach us. My course is curriculum-relevant; it makes us ready for the current industry. But the management is very good with all the facilities. There will be midterms, quizzes, and endterms for each semester. If we study hard, we can easily pass the exams. The pass percentage is 30 percent.
Other: There are many extracurricular activities available, like sports facilities, events, clubs, and annual and technical festivals. There are also inter-NIT competitions. I have chosen this course because I am interested in civil engineering. Transportation is easily available from the campus to anywhere.

Review of VNIT Nagpur - Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology.
Placements: In mechanical engineering last year, 97 percent of students were placed. Companies like TATA, Bajaj, Thermax, and many more recruit here. Internship opportunities are also very good here. Talking about the package, the median package is 11 LPA, and the highest package is 22 LPA. Many jobs can be pursued, mostly people opt for robotics for core positions. If you have to go into non-core fields, then learn coding.
Infrastructure: Hostel facilities are very good here; toilets and rooms are of high quality. Coolers are allowed in summer. We have sports facilities like a volleyball net in the common area and also a badminton net beside it. Additionally, we can play table tennis as we have 2 tables and carrom chess. These facilities can be used until 10:30 pm, but we have an in-time of 8 pm, which is a little disappointing. However, for first-years, it is fine; from the second year, there is no in-time. We have 3 floors, and each floor has 52 rooms, with one room reserved for SP and JP. Each room has 2 beds, 4 cupboards, 2 fans, and 2 lights. The rooms are very comfortable. The food quality is average, with regular reviews taken to improve it, but it is good to eat, and hygiene is good. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options are available.
Faculty: Teachers are helpful, and they solve your doubts if asked, but attendance matters; there is a 75 percent criteria. If your attendance is near 75, like 74 or 73, it can be managed. Some teachers are not good, so it depends on your luck, but if the teacher is not good, then you will have to learn from YouTube, which is fine. The course is good and still relevant but is hectic; a lot of assignments are given for each subject. Talking about the semester exams, there are two semester exams: mid-semester and end-semester, which are like JEE level. The pass percentage depends upon the class average.
Other: VNIT is famous for its sports facilities; almost every major sport is available, including lawn tennis, football, cricket, table tennis, swimming, basketball, badminton, kho kho, kabaddi, volleyball, handball, and many more. The campus is 240 acres, which is very green in nature, full of trees, and there is one building for classes called CRC. There are many events like DG Night, departmental gatherings, institute gatherings (IG), which are like chichore. All sports are played, and each year has department wings.
