NIT Rourkela : One of the best NIT

Placement: For Core and Circuital branches, it is awesome. The average CTC for them is almost about 7 LPA. For the new branches like Biomedical, Biotechnology there are no core companies for them. They receive job offers mainly in IT sectors offering 3.3 to 3.5 LPA or in some analytics firm offering 5-6 LPA.
Faculty: Prof. A. Thirugnanam He was my faculty advisor as well as my final year project guide. He was one of the most friendly professor I had ever met in NIT-R. He was always there to help and guide whenever I am facing any problem or in dilemma regarding my career.
College: Pros: Best Infrastructure Nice Accommodation and Canteen Facilities Nice Club Culture and other extra co-curricular activities Friendly and Approachable professors Cons: They are opening new branches without having proper faculty or MoUs with industries and other universities. As a result of which, students of these branches are either going to IT sector, or if they have money then to higher studies in foreign or most of them being jobless.
Exam: State / National Entrance Exams
