    Its mostly relaxed but there were one wardens who were kind of biased against NRI students when problems used to arise. like the parents come from the gulf to the campus because two guys kicked a ball around. I mean I wasn't involved but it seemed very excessive. There were worse things that could happen on the campus that went unpunished.

    Admission -

    I applied through their DASA scheme. Back then you had to write SAT 2 Physics, Chemistry and Maths and score above 2200 to get into the branches (Mechanical, Electrical, Computer Science). You could submit an online application on their website, I believe its called and submit your sat registration number to report you r sat marks after taking them. Make sure you hold on to your SAT admit card. It has a number that is mentioned nowhere else. and has to be shown at the admission counter. I don't know if this is outdated information.

    One of the Best Engineering College in India. It's located on the beach side so one can visit the beach really often. Airport is only 20km and railways station is just 8 km. One can enjoy the campus life as well as city life here.

    Admission -

    I gave my entrance Exam Jee Main which is an all India examination in which over a million students appear in total. I got a percentile of 99. 8615403 and an All India Rank of 1730. After the results the merit list was announced in which I got admission into this prestigious Institution. The admission process is really convinient and the faculty is really helpful. I chose Computer Science because of my interest in problem solving.

    NITK is a very cool college. It provides students with the opportunity to learn and have fun at the same time.

    Admission -

    The admission process was through graduate aptitude technical exam (GATE). For a civil engineering graduate with a decent gate score can get an Mtech admission either in the civil engineering department or in the department of applied mechanics. There are a total of 8 post graduate courses for a civil graduate to choose from.

    Remarks -
    6.2 /10

    Several loopholes in the system that could be handled a lot more efficiently, and the faculty is extremely negligent towards students who are struggling but are still making an effort and choose to bask in the glory of readymade products. Other than that, it's been a wholesome experience studying at NITK.

    Admission -

    DASA, SAT 2 scores. I opted for this course because I was clear in my mind that I had to go for a course that was holistic in its nature in terms of understanding software and hardware and this certainly seemed like the most efficient route to it. The admission procedure involved the SAT 2 test, a merit list based on those, and allocation of branches afterward. There was then a collection of certificates and review of grades from high school, which then sealed the admission after the initial payment of the registration fee.

    Admission -

    It was everyone's dream to get into this wonderful institute who passed 12th with PCM stream with competitive percentage. It holds true even today. I applied for admission to this college through Directorate of Technical Education, Bangalore during 1979.I was confident that I will be called for interview but was not sure of getting the course of my choice i,e Electronics Engineering. As expected I was interviewed during April 79 and offered admission to Mechanical Engineering course, which I gladly accepted.

    Postive remarks The college is very good at its a academics and research activities. The placement is also of 1st tier College level. The seniors are very supportive. Negative response The hostel washrooms are soo dirty. Cleanliness of hostels is a matter of concern.

    Admission -

    For this college , which comes under MHRD , we have to clear JEE mains exams. Then you have to apply for Jossa councelling. There u have to fill the choices in which college you want to go. After shortlisting , you were asssign a college based on your rank.
