Over all, I would rate this as an above average college with very unique offering in the field of information technology. If IT is your interest, then this is the college for you.
Gave the SNAP entrance test, which is compulsory for getting admission into any symbiosis university college. I opted for SCIT as I had a keen interest in doing MBA in the field of information technology which only this college offers.
Course is very IT focused. 2 major streams are 'IT Systems' and 'IT security'. There are many interest electives like IT strategy, Technology management etc which give you a holistic view of the IT domain. Similarly there are electives in security also, which eventually boost your carrier as a thorough security personnel.
Yes, internship is provided where many big companies come and hire students. Some of them also give pre placements if they like the student. Average duration of internship is around 2.5months and stipend changes from company to company.
Placements are almost 100% in this college. Many big IT players like the big 4- delloite, KPMG, EY, pwc and many others like Infosys, wipro, accenture, citrix etc. come to the college. Salary varies from 4.5lakhs per annum to around 22lakhs per annum.
Graffiti - it is the biggest event of SCIT with footfall of over 3000people. It is a techno-manegerial festival spread across 2 days. Many colleges from across India come to be a part of this event. There lots of quizzes, drama, treasure hunt, debates etc organised as a part of this event. The event ends with a DJ night in the end. Symbiosis Premier league - it is a inter college cricket event organised students of SCIT. colleges participating in this are SCIT, SCMHRD and SIIB.
Fees can be paid in 4 installments (semester wise) or as a one time payment. During my time the fees was around 7. 5 lakhs approximately. So, at that point of time, I would say that the fees was reasonable as most student would get placed with package of 6 lakhs or above. But of the placement package stats have remained the same and the fees has increased, then I would term it as expensive.
I do not have a much knowledge about the scholarship offered by our college. Although I know that there is some discount on fees for the highest scorer of SNAP entrance test in every batch. Still, i would request you to verify these facts.
Symbiosis is a international university and so the crowd here is diverse. You will find people of different countries in your batch, but of course, the maximum crowd would be Indians. This college has tie ups with some colleges in Japan. So every year some students from there come here while some students from scit go there. Gender ratio is normally approx 50:50only. Lot of other tie ups for example.,with SAP labs, Australia boost the over all curriculum. Politics cannot be seen in the campus. SCIT is pretty famous for its drama teams, cricket and football teams who take part in various events in various colleges across the year
Hostel rooms are decent. In 1st year, the boys have to stay in a hostel outside college campus but just a 5minute walk from college. The food is provided in the same hostel for the boys. Where as, the girls stay in hostels inside the campus. They are provided food in the campus canteen only. The caterers are same so the food supplied in both hostels is same. In 2nd year, both boys and girls stay in same campus hostels, but yes, the building for boys and girls hostel is different. Quality of food ranges from below average to average.
I have personally not had any such experience of meeting an alumni or taking any kind of help from them. But, we do have alumni meets in major cities like Mumbai, bangalore etc.
It's a 2 years course divided into 4 semesters. So, approximately 6 months for a semester. Yes, the number of subjects are quite a lot which gradually reduce as you reach the last semester but still, it will leave you tired each day. Exams happen twice each semester. One is a mid semester exam and the other is a final semester exam. The mid semester exams are of lesser marks and till date portion which has been covered. So these exams consist of 2 subject papers each day. On the contrary, the final exam of each semester consist of full portion and one exam per day.
After entrance exams, you have to fill forms of all the colleges you are interested in under the 'symbiosis International University'. Once that is done, if your score fits the criteria of the college, you get an interview call. Interview consists of gd and PI. Then based on the performance combined with the SNAP score and your graduation marks, shortlisting is done and candidates are selected
Faculty is a mixed bag. Of course they all meet the qualification criteria to be a faculty member but what differs is the experience which they bring along. Visiting faculty is normally the one who has lot of industry experience and it really gives a practical picture of what we are actually studying. This makes the subject more interesting. So for the students who genuinely come for learning and not just for placements, love these lectures. In the in house faculty, some professors are extra ordinary while most of them are just about average.
Placement of is also run by the student placement committee. Committee members are responsible to contact the company and convenience them to come to college for SIP and final placement. Faculty are also there for any help if needed. Placement is also quite good with an average package of 7.5 lakhs
Placements are quite decent. We are provided with assistance and workshops, personal training sessions, aptitude sessions are also held for betterment of the student. Maximum students get placed with an average package of 5 lakhs per annum.
During Semester 3, students become eligible for campus placements. Some of the companies visiting campus for final placements are JP Morgan, ICICI Bank, Aditya Birla Group, PWC, Zomato, PWC, DHL express, Wipro, Amul, CIsco, Airtel, and many more. The highest package offered at the national level is 15lakhs and at the international level is 50 lakhs. The average CTC is 6 lakhs. In 2020, 95% of the students were placed through campus placements. Over 3100 students are placed as of April 2021.
In the 4th semester, the students become eligible for campus placements. There were many companies that visited like Bain & Co, Crisil Ltd, Wipro, Goldman Sachs, EY, KPMG, Deloitte etc. The highest package offered was 14 lac pa and the average is around 8-9 lacs. Almost all the students get placed every year.
From 2nd semester onwards, students are eligible for campus placements. Average placements are offered between 650000-700000. Companies like EY, jp morgan, pwc, etc come for placements drive and 80% of students do get placed there. Since, the strengths are very high, placement has huge competition.
College placements generally start from the 3rd semester onwards as companies start arriving by then and it goes up till the end of the 4th semester, placements at IBS Mumbai are decent but there is huge competition in placement due to a large number crowd and one should be prepared for this as good companies come with good package in the starting period of the placement. Average running placement for the college is 5.5 - 7.5 lakhs. There are few foreign placements as well with huge package but they take very few in number too, and honestly, this college attracts more of sales and marketing profile jobs which means finance has huge competition when it comes down to their placements and HR is very very low or for that matter operations is also not that great.
Admission process requires students to sign up for the common counselling process. I applied with my MAT exam scores and later attended the common admission process. Finally, I was granted admission on the basis of my academic record and after the final step was the document verification process. Overall the entire process went pretty smoothly.
Our training and placement cell remains active throughout the year. We learned a lot during the mock sessions like mock interviews, personality development sessions. Even the feedback for the classroom presentations helped us improve and work on our shortcomings. Students from our batch were able to secured salary package as high as 10 LPA, while on average students were offered 4 LPA.
