Discussion on NITR with Om Prakash Mallick.
Placements: Each branch has a placement rate of over 95% based on annual data. In 2023, the highest package offered was 84lpa, while the lowest was 3lpa, with an average of 13lpa. The top recruiting companies for my course were MCL, CIL, TCS, Vedanta, and HINDALCO. The college offers mandatory internship opportunities in the third year.
Infrastructure: NIT Rourkela offers excellent facilities as it is a top-tier college, ranked 16th in NIRF. Every department has its own beautiful building equipped with all the necessary equipment for their studies. The hostel facilities are top-notch, providing free Wi-Fi and geyser facilities. The mess food is also of exceptional quality. The institute also has its own medical hospital and a wide range of sports facilities are available.
Faculty: The majority of professors, nearly 90%, have graduated from IITs, possessing vast knowledge that is reflected in the exam papers. In addition to academic focus, teachers also encourage entrepreneurship, research, and other pursuits. Semester exams are notably challenging due to the high level of intelligence among the faculty. To pass, a minimum score of 30 out of 100 is required.
Other: I opted for this course as this college is renowned for its exceptional department since its inception. The most remarkable aspect of this course is its vast potential, offering a 100% job opportunity. My course has already undergone significant enhancements, leaving no room for further improvements. Throughout the year, three major festivals were organized, featuring a multitude of events.

A college with average placement, improved infrastructure, and good (and strict) academics.
Placements: Most students get placed, but it all comes down to your skills and knowledge. If you have those skills, you will get placed. The highest package goes from INR 20 to 30 lacs if applied to non-core companies. This is because it's a research field where most of the students go for higher studies, and companies also demand more qualified students. Many students go for side options like preparing for government exams or learning coding to get placed in non-core companies; one of the seniors did a B.Tech. in Biotech but cleared GATE in the ECE department; some students here are quite good. So ultimately, there are many divergent paths other than the core field. For core companies, it's around INR 6 to 10 lacs. Biocon is the top recruiter for my branch.
Infrastructure: Infrastructure facilities are average; every facility is available: labs, classrooms, libraries, etc. Hostel facilities are average; some are old while others are new, but all hostels have basic facilities like a gym, study room, TV room, music room, etc. Coming to Mess, it's not the best but average; the food is good; some dishes are not restaurant-level, but they're good and edible. Canteens are also good, and medical facilities are available. For any problem, you get seamless and free treatment.
Faculty: Professors are qualified and knowledgeable; teaching quality is average; you have to make an effort to learn things; no spoon-feeding will be done. The course curriculum is relevant, but it is quite old. Students will be industry-ready if and only if they make an effort. Semester exams are quite hard, but students make way for themselves through last-night studies, and the pass percentage is high as most of the students pass.
Other: I chose Biotechnology as I was quite interested in it; I was not getting any circuital branches, so I preferred to go with the research field. The thing that must be improved is the curriculum; it's still very old and not up to high standards like those of foreign colleges. Events, hall fests, and clubs are abundant; every time something is happening in the college, if nothing else, then exams are going on.

Satisfied with the college campus.
Placements: Students become eligible for placements in the last year, which is the fourth year. About 1356 job offers are given by companies like Amazon, Oracle, Zydus, etc. According to the last year's placement percentage, 80% of students got placed in companies from our college. The maximum offer given was 66 LPA CTC, and I don't know about the least, but the average package is 7 LPA.
Infrastructure: College infrastructure is too good; when you enter the college, all you can see is the greenery part of the college. Labs are also clean and spacious. Sports are played by many students in their free time, but honestly, the college does not give any specific period of time for sports. College officials allow students to play when there is a fest or something else.
Faculty: Teachers are so helpful. Teachers also guide us in a well-mannered way and help us in our academics. Obviously, teachers don't help us in getting placements ready. The course curriculum is relevant and the same as other colleges; we have one mid-sem exam and an exam before the final exam, and the last one is the final exam. Academics are somewhat difficult because our course has a lot of mathematics in it.
Other: I chose this course because I wanted to work in the core field, so electrical engineering is at the top and has scope for making a career in the core branch.
