• Top Answer By Atrisa Dutta on 14-Aug-2020

Ans. IIT Gandhinagar is among the new IITs. So, the placement statistics of this institute are not at par with the old IITs, but still, decent packages are offered. Unlike the UG students, M.Tech students have to rely mostly on core jobs. Due to this, the percentage of students getting placed in M.Tech is relatively less than B.Tech students. For the class of 2019, the average placement package offered was around 6.6 LPA. The average package for B.Tech was higher than this because they had an option to choose non-core jobs as well. And non-core jobs usually pay higher than core jobs. Some companies which offered jobs to the M.Tech students are John Deere, Johnson Controls, Belcan India, Bombardier Transportation, Marvell Semiconductor, Hyundai Motors, RKC Infrabuilt, MCX India, General Electric, Reliance Jio Infocomm, Mahindra & Mahindra, Hatch Associates, GIFT and many more.   Some M.Tech students also get funded Ph.D. invitations from prestigious institutes on the basis of their research. But as the years are progressing, the placement scenario is also improving here. For the year 2016-2017, the PG median salary was 5.5 LPA. For the year 2017-2018, it was 6 LPA. For the year 2018-2019, it was 6.6 LPA. This shows that placement statistics are improving every year. More companies, PSUs, and Research & Development Organizations are coming to recruit M.Tech students.  Read more

    • Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 24-Aug-2020

    Ans. IIT is a brand that is more than 60-70 years old and the reputation of IITs for engineering is unmatched. So, it might not be fair to compare IITs with Techno India University as TIU was established in 2002. The expertise, global exposure and hands-on technical training in IITs are unparalleled. If a student gets an opportunity to study in an IIT, be it anywhere, the IIT tag itself is sufficient to get you noticed by the industry professionals.  Techno India University may not be as popular as the IITs, but it is a reputed institution under WBUT. Techno India University is notable for its engineering department. Their school of engineering prepares students with theoretical and practical knowledge about the subject and provides industrial training to enhance the skills of the students. Students involve themselves in workshops, seminars, and interdisciplinary research.  Techno India University takes admission for B.Tech courses through WBJEE, JEE Mains, Techno Joint Entrance Examination whereas IITs take admission through JEE Advanced. As a result, there is a huge difference in the student crowd at these institutes. Students from Techno India University may get job opportunities similar to an IIT graduate but unlike the former, the latter has a higher percentage of getting a larger salary package offered to them. Not only in engineering but in other fields too. The top companies visiting IIT during their placement program are Microsoft, Qualcomm, Amazon, Morgan Stanley, Adobe, Accenture, Samsung, Google, TATA, ONGC, Strategy and Carin, Goldman Sachs, etc. They offer an average salary package of 10-15 lakhs per annum where Companies visiting Techno India University offer an average salary package of 3.5 lakhs per annum. Some companies taking part in the placement process are Byjus, Wipro, TCS, Infosys, IBM, etc. The total fee in IIT is around 9,50,000 and that of Techno India University is 3,56,800 for a BTech. course.   Read more

      Since IIT GN is established in 2008 and it got is permanent campus in 2015. So the campus is under construction. And it will take time. Still it has s good campus. But, for fully ready campus you have to wait at least 10 years.

      As such, college is very good if you want to have research on something. College will provide everything and fund for everything related to research. But one must be aware of placements. Although college tries to provide good placements, they are not very good.
