Placement Experience :

VIT has remarkable placement records so far. It has a placement centre that has vigorously trained the students and brought many MNCs for placement activities. Companies from various domains participate in the recruitment process at VIT. VIT has been in the good books of most of the companies that visit the campus in terms of the quality of the students and the skills they possess. The students are given an option to choose between various streams that include IT Services, product consulting, banking, Core Engineering companies with other options too. So this has allowed the students to select the jobs from their area of interest. There are more than 700 companies that visited VIT for placement activities and listing all of those companies here would be impossible. Many reputed companies such as Intel, eBay, Amazon, Dell, GE, Texas Instruments, Schneider Electric, DE Shaw & Co, Hitachi, HP, PayPal, Tata Motors, L&T, Dr Reddy's, Bosch, Deloitte, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Qualc.

Remarks :

I joined VIT in 2020 during the pandemic lockdown so the VITEEE exam which is the entrance exam was cancelled and was given the option to upload my 12th Physics, Chemistry, Maths marks and January JEE results too. Then there is the release of ranking and according to that, I got CSE in Chennai campus.

Placement Experience :

7th semester, the numbers they show in college is good. Microsoft, Amazon, Deloitte, Cisco, etc also came to our college for placement. The highest package was around 45 LPA about placement figures, I am not sure.

Remarks :

The best option available for me at that time. I give VITEEE, go for counselling and get the seat. If you can't get the desired branch, you can get your desired branch by moving onto the next category where you have to pay more.

Placement Experience :

For M.Sc. course, students become eligible for placements in internship after completing first year and may become a permanent employee there too or can apply for other placement offers in final semester. Since my course was introduced in 2020 only and I am in the very first batch of this course so cannot tell about the highest package or average package right now. But for most of the B.Tech courses average package is 5 Lakh per annum.

Placement Experience :

VIT provides 100% guaranteed placements. The final year students, I mean the fourth year students are eligible for the campus interviews. So I heard that VIT offers good placements. And also in VIT, they provide internships for third-year students. Sometimes through that also they might get placed during their fourth year. So I have planned to get placed through VIT after graduating or else to do my pg.

Remarks :

I am interested in designing and I heard that VIT offers a fashion technology course which has a good scope in the future. So, I applied for the entrance exam through the website - vit.ac.in. And so I wrote an entrance exam called (vitee) . And I got 67772 ranks out of 100000. And moreover, during councilling, there were 53 seats left for fashion technology and that is more than enough. So, I just went ahead and applied for fashion technology. And VIT offers good education and they also provide guaranteed placements. So I just joined here.

Placement Experience :

The student becomes eligible for placements from the 7th semester. Many company visits in the campus ranging from core companies to IT companies to startup companies. The average package you can get as a fresher is 5 LPA. And highest can go up to 20lpa. Depending upon your overall CGPA and how you perform in the placement test and interview. After the degree, I will be an option for higher studies so that college gives you a testimonial which is required in foreign institutions for admissions. Placement percentage is 90%-100%.

Remarks :

Well experienced teachers. The nice infrastructure of the college. Hostels and mess are well maintained and hygiene environment is provided. Well secured campus as the guards are strict and responsible regarding girls and their safety. The course system of FFCS (fully flexible credit system) allows you to plan your subjects and gives you multiple options to choose your subjects from. Exams are taken seriously and you have a strict attendance system. Has a digital library and free access to all the co-curricular clubs in which you want to join according to your interest. The college has a mixture of cultures from North to South which is a good thing but sometimes you will feel discriminated on the basis of north Indians and south Indians.

Ques. Is it better to study at VSSUT Burla or VIT Chennai?

● Top Answer By Sumit Ghose on 20 May 21

Ans. I think I can give a satisfactory answer to this question, as I know a little bit about both these institutes through my friends.  If you have the option and resources opting for VIT Chennai will be good. It is one of the best private colleges in India. The placement record of the institute is quite good with decent salary packages. Since it is a private college, there are many clubs and societies through which you will have good exposure. The campus life at VIT is also quite enjoyable. On the other hand, at VSSUT you will have great peers. As it is a Govt. college, admission is only based on merit.  Parameters  VIT Chennai VSSUT Average CTC 6.05 LPA - Highest CTC 39 LPA 10.20 LPA So, choose what’s best for you. Read more

Ques. Which is better VIT Chennai or PEC Chandigarh?

● Top Answer By Krishna Mathur on 04 May 21

Ans. VIT is better as it has more than 200 companies coming for CSE students. If the student wants to go into a college with better placements or better exposure.  The table shows a brief overview of the institution: Particulars PEC Chandigarh VIT Chennai Average Salary Rs. 8-10 lakhs Rs. 7.25 lakhs Highest Salary Rs. 45 lakhs Rs. 41.6 lakhs Entrance Criteria JEE Main VITEEE Fees Rs. 6.39 lakhs Rs. 4.84-7.8 lakhs The intake of students in VIT is not great as students above the rank of 2000 in VITEEE join some other colleges.  VIT has seats for merit up to only 6000 rank holders in CSE. Concluding only one thing that 80% of those 1300 VIT CSE students get through management quota. So, if the student is worthy then they will find themselves humiliated with children who come there through management quota. That's why even if the student gets a lower branch in PEC, take it as PEC is the legacy of notable alumni and will continue to remain.  Unless you have a certain inclination towards some branch then do opt for PEC the student will never regret it. It is not possible to decide your inclination just after completing 12th as there is plenty of knowledge awaiting. When you take a branch that you probably didn’t realize in school also the placements in PEC are nice now it is on par with VIT. Overall, PEC is the potential choice.Read more

Ques. Which is better - NIT Raipur or VIT Chennai?

● Top Answer By Pooja Sharma on 20 Apr 21

Ans. If you compare NIT Raipur and VIT Chennai, then NIT Raipur is much better than VIT. In the given table you will get the basic information of NIT Raipur and VIT Chennai. Here are few reasons why NIT Raipur is a better option. Government College: NIT Raipur is a government college, and VIT Chennai is a private college. Hence the fees will be less. Fees: NIT Raipur hostel and tuition fees are lower than VIT.  Placement: I have one of my relatives studying in VIT Chennai. The placement cell of VIT is not better than NIT. The placement of the NIT Raipur core branch is good.  Salary Packages: Students at NIT Raipur have been offered the highest salary of 11.30 LPA while for VIT Chennai, 39 LPA was the highest. Infrastructure: The infrastructure of NIT is not as good as VIT. But the college is located in the city center and is rapidly developing. However, NIT does not have a good laboratory facility, if you are choosing Biotechnology or Biomedical Engineering. VIT has a better laboratory facility. Attendance: NIT Raipur is off on weekends. Also, NIT does not have a struct 75% attendee rule, which gives students time to relax and enjoy their college life.  Hostel: Boys do not have a strict time restriction. Girls do face some restrictions while being on time. However, the management is working towards improving it. Therefore, if you are choosing between NIT Raipur and VIT Chennai, then choose the former. The placement of NIT Raipur is also good. Branches like Electronics and Telecommunications, CSE, Electrical, Mechanical have good placement records. However, Metallurgy, CE, Mining branch placement is not very promising. So make your decision based on these things.Read more

Ques. Which one is better overall, VIT or BIT Mesra?

● Top Answer By Naina Parekh on 15 Apr 21

Ans. I have a friend at BIT Mesra. So, I know a little bit about the institute. BIT Mesra is one of the best private institutes in the country. The institute is better than a number of NITs and it takes a lot of hard work to get into this esteemed institution. My acquaintance completed his mechanical in Mesra and the total class strength in the same was 95. The class strength was around 800 in VIT in mechanical. In terms of exposure, in the corporate circle, BIT Mesra is well renowned. A lot of its students hold influential positions in a number of big companies. The placement of the students is greatly impacted by the units of public and private sectors. Another reason why BIT Mesra is so respected because the ratio of the students selected through JEE Advanced is much higher.Read more

Ques. Which is better VIT or NIT Raipur for CSE?

● Top Answer By Mukund Agarwal on 08 Apr 21

Ans. According to a senior of mine who has graduated from NIT Raipur, the institute is better than most top colleges in Bangalore including VIT institutes. Despite having a soft spot for NIT Raipur, she does not discourage candidates from trying their luck at any other university, including VITs. She, however, suggests that they should get acquainted for measuring progress after completion of the undergraduate degree. Campus: VIT campus is definitely better than the NIT Raipur campus. Although the NIT Raipur has been considerably renovated.  The VIT campus will cost around 2 lakhs per year which includes hostel fees as well. Education at NIT Raipur will cost around 0.5 lakhs. Course: The course of VIT will not have any effect on your CSE placement.  On the other hand, your coding skills and DS+Algo will have a part to play in your placement. Either way, the effort is required regardless of how much you pay. Placements: By the time you graduate, if you choose NIT Raipur, that is, the institute will pretty much be holding its own among other giants. My senior said two of her batchmates landed a 75 LPA package without paying hefty college fees. VIT, being a private college, is known to boost their placement records. In addition to that, they have a management quota as well which goes on to say that not all the best minds will be found there. A friend of my seniors had a good rank and went to VIT. He got chosen in three companies. VIT attracts employers in large numbers but they offer packages of only around 3-3.5 LPA. In the case of NIT Raipur, almost every candidate will get at least one job, in recent years many also bagged two jobs. The ones who have, get a package of 4-8 LPA for the first job, and a package of as much as 16-17 LPA for the second job. Candidates who do not get a second job also land a job with a package of 4-8 LPA.  Overall, it is safe to say that CSE from NIT Raipur will be a good option.Read more
