VIT UNIVERSITY, Vellore
ONCE A VITIAN ALWAYS BE A VITIAN
positive is everything infrastructure facility ,accommodation, cultural fests,events and activities, hostel mess food , green campus with transportation facility and canteen ,labs with AC and sports facility of each type of sports and reputation of college, negative- population is very high you should be talented enough to grab the opportunity and sometimes the fines are very high even for single mistakes means security and discipline is very tight
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
fee structure is feasible if we compare that in terms of placements ,facilities and foreign tie up of college and the exposure you will get in VIT and ya don't forget it is private college so that's an average fee of all the colleges in the same line but you should be in 1st category to be in feasible range of fees. it also depends on the food accommodation you choose.
placements are really good from last 3-4 years means you will surely get placed if you maintain cgpa above 7 and no arrear history + if you are in some good club like technical or automobile branch or in aerospace. but if you are good in coding also or have god technical knowledge you will surely get placed.
fill the vit entrace exam form ,give it, after getting rank you will be called for an counselling in chennai or vellore where you have to choose your branch according to your rank after that you are going to choose a room allotment( AC or non AC) and food (veg or non-veg)
their are around 15-20 building of boys hostel and 8-10 of girls hostel so i can tell you about boys hostel in 1st year preference should be blockwise N>M>P but now their is one more block and i heard its good from 2nd year onwards you will get other blocks in which E ,D ANEX AND then l block is prefered and if talk about mess than in special mess than Dblock >Gblock>Zenith special>L block special and for normal mess than G>L>K and for paid mess zenith>rajarajeshwari and food is relatively good and north as well as south veg and non-veg. i would rate hostel-8 and for food -7
sore if you have any contact with senior you will get the help in placements because they have already faced it what you should you read how to prepare for placements and yes they will help you out get placement off campus also by reference and VIT name itself is enough to lift you out from huge population applying for the job off campus.
some faculty is really good like Benedict thomas, OMP suthar because they have good understanding of subject and can teach you well.but i can say the faculty of mechanical is best in vit as I have heard of but CS/IT placements are very good comparatively
the labs are good in VIT because they have every machine in labs worth rs upto 10 crore even for students practice and the labs are very big and computer labs are also good enough fully AC you can do your work any empty slots no one is going to interrupt unless you do some non sense and sports facilities are also good you have to pay them extra for sports like swimming pool ,badminton court, snooker,gym, tennis etc. and in extracurricular VIT is like gold buy you must know how to grab because the population is high.
exam pattern is basically in three parts CAT1+CAT2+3 quizes+ assignment which weightage is 50 % and then their is final exam which weightage is 50% and cat2 is open book exam and relatively tougher than cat1 and yes their are lab exam also along with some subject. which conduct in two parts and sometimes in 3 parts as well and quiz generally conduct online
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
it is good but sometime you have to work hard on some courses due to difficulty level but you can get help from professors and after all if you grasp your courses well their is nothing to stop you from getting placement.
no my college didn't provide internship in my branch atleast but college fame can get you some internship try on your own. but ya if you are in contact with some good faculty than they can get you some internship like my one friend got an opportunity in taiwan and it was paid in CS branch
