The education system in college is very good and there are lots of placements in theses college,the college environment is very nice,there's ground to play sports and games.The college management was very excellent. The lab equipments are available for all students and professors make the students to learn how to use those equipments.I am from out of state so there is little bit language problem at the starting of the college to communicate.The food in the institute was not so much good it is average.The college is in outskirts of the city since we have to travel 1hr journey to reach the railway or bus station.

Admission :

Yes we face written test to have admission in the nit. The written test is known JEE mains which was conducted through out the nation for 12 or 12+ students.

Remarks :

I thought of doing my M.Tech in IIT's or NIT's so due to low score I have only chance of NIT. So when I got Thermal Engineering in National Institute of Technology, Durgapur I accepted it without any second thought.

Placement Experience :

Placement is not good for my program in this college. Not many core companies calling us for placements. Even few companies calling but not recruiting. This the same case even for my seniors.

The only good engineering college in durgapur, this college is a dream for many. Being from a middle class family i could only afford govt. college. I choose this course because i am really keen to learn how different materials are used to make different things and how minerals are used to make different things.

Being a lower branch, placements are not as high as cse or it but decent enough. Highest package was around 15lpa and lowest around 2.5lpa. Some of the core companies visiting are Tata steels, Tata paints, Vedanta, Adani steels, Asian Paints etc.

Ques. How is ECE in IIIT Allahabad? Is it better than NIT Durgapur?

● Top Answer By Komal Chawla on 11 May 21

Ans. IIIT Allahabad is unquestionably superior to NIT Durgapur. But this isn't to say that NIT Durgapur isn't good.  If you want a career in ECE, don’t go for NIT Durgapur. ECE branch at NIT Durgapur does not have good reviews.  However, if you want to go for an MBA after your BTech, then NIT Durgapur can be a good option.  In the ICT sector, IIIT Allahabad holds a special position for ECE and this institute specializes in the IT sector. I have a few friends at the institute who vouches for the course.  Here’s a brief comparison of the ECE branch at these two institutes. Parameters  IIIT Allahabad NIT Durgapur Average CTC 43 LPA 32.54 LPA Highest CTC 20.83 LPA 9.09 LPA Fees 5.85 lakhs 5.56 lakhs Apart from that, just like NITD, IIIT Allahabad is an institute of national importance that is entirely funded by the Ministry of Human Resources Development.  So, for ECE, IIIT Allahabad is definitely the better option.Read more

Ques. Which college is better: NIT Jamshedpur or NIT Durgapur?

● Top Answer By Ranjana Patra on 10 May 21

Ans. Both the institutes will give you the tag of NITian, however, NIT Durgapur has a bit of an edge over NIT Jamshedpur. According to NIRF rankings and my friends’ experience, NIT Durgapur is ahead of the latter because of the following reasons. NIT Jamshedpur was once upon a time (about 30 years back) known for its strikes and political issues, not much has changed since then. Coming to NIRF rankings, NIT Durgapur ranks 47, whereas NIT Jamshedpur ranks 79 which is way behind. Placements at these two NIT are not much different.  Parameters NIT Jamshedpur  NIT Durgapur  Average CTC  12 LPA 9.09 LPA Highest CTC  30 LPA 33 LPA Overall, NIT Durgapur comes with a better ranking, better infrastructure, and an economical fee structure.Read more

Ques. Should I attend NIT, Durgapur; IIITM, Gwalior; IIIT, Amethi; or drop for IIT next year?

● Top Answer By Supriya Sarkar on 05 May 21

Ans. My brother was in a similar situation back in 2014 with a rank of 11,000 in JEE advanced and 28,000 in JEE Mains. If you belong to the general category with this score, there is no chance of being able to attend IIT counseling. If you are determined to attend IIT, you should consider taking a drop and try again next year and not regret your decision of not getting into core IITs.  IIITM Gwalior or IIIT Amethi are not that great when it comes to placements. You will also notice that core IITs have a different vibe to them and the environment is definitely much better too. So you should definitely not settle for something less than what you deserve. If you think you need help preparing, you can even think of joining a coaching center. With determination and hard work, you will definitely be able to join one of the core IITs and your life will be set later. However, ensure that you are completely sure of your decision. If you want to be on the safer side, you can take admission to IIITM Gwalior. If you are interested in coding, you will surely do well here. On the other hand, you can also prepare for JEE side by side as it is easy to be a student at IIITM Gwalior without much pressure. In case you do succeed, you will end up at a much better institute and if not, you can always fall back on IIITM Gwalior.Read more

Ques. Should I join ECE in NIT Durgapur or CSE in IIIT Guwahati, given that I am interested in coding and that IIIT is only about 5 years old?

● Top Answer By Neha Uniyal on 29 Apr 21

Ans. If coding is your area of interest and you are getting a chance to join ECE at NIT Durgapur then grab it. The coding culture at NIT Durgapur is amazing. You will grow a lot here. The ECE department has produced many GSoCers and also fantastic competitive coders. The department does not pressurize the students much and you can peacefully do your work. If you maintain a good CGPA, you can even get a summer internship at ‘CERN’. The institute has put in a lot of effort to build a good research culture. The department also receives sponsorship for research. In the past, it has done research sponsored by research initiation grant, DST, and SERB. If you are devoted to coding, NITD ECE will offer you many opportunities.Read more

Ques. Which has the better campus life, NIT Durgapur or NIT Jamshedpur?

● Top Answer By Deepika Kunwar on 23 Apr 21

Ans. Well, both the colleges are in different states and both have their own set of reports, some good some bad. Though from an infrastructure point of view, NIT Jamshedpur is small and cozy whereas NIT Durgapur is quite beautiful and flourished in about 187 acres of land. The campus life at NIT Durgapur is really awesome. Apart from academics and infrastructure, it’s an NIT so you can understand it's pretty good. But if you really want to experience it, you should definitely join NIT Durgapur and enjoy the vast playgrounds, clean campus, and friendly environment. Though you can get some negative aspects but there is nothing wrong related to campus life. Similarly, it goes for NIT Jamshedpur. Even though the infrastructure of NIT Jamshedpur is not at par but definitely the campus life is awesome here too. The students make the campus lively. You will get to see a vast and clean area with basketball, cricket and football ground. Though the facility of Wi-Fi is not provided but you will have sufficient speed and workstations to fulfill your needs. The mess food provided is of good quality. There are many places to hang out and inside the institute only. The cleanliness is very good; in fact, Jamshedpur is one of the cleanest cities of East India. The seniors are awesome and do cooperate and guide you if you face any issues. Both the campus have good campus life and environment. But better contact someone who studies there and judge the authenticity and then choose between the two and definitely consider placement, faculty, and research before opting for either of them. The campus life at NIT Jamshedpur is quite good and you are not going to regret joining this institute.Read more

"A good college to get graduated."

So First about the admission, It happens through the JEE Main Entrance Examination( which is conducted twice a year) and 6-7 rounds of counselling conducted by JOSAA. As per your rank, you get the college with respective departments. NIT Durgapur gives you almost everything that you want from a college from great campus life, decent placements to various cultural and technical events and seminars. The best thing about the college is that it is located in heart of the city so you have access to every essential. The only thing that I felt is faculties are knowledgeable but they can be a little grumpy when it comes to attendance and assignments. I choose this college as I have done my school
