  • The college does not live upto the expectations

    For : Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Institute of Technology
    User Rating
    3/5

    The college was not the way one expects to be of National level. The teachers are not so cooperative and the conditions of the hostel is not what one expects. There is scope of improvement in many areas and its high time they should realise the need of improvement.

    Campus Location

    The campus is far from the city location and means of transportation is available.

    Campus Facilities

    Hostel environment needs improvement and staff should be cooperative.

    Campus Life

    Infrastructure should be improved and placements are not that great.

    Jobs & Internships

    Many challenges are faced which include lack of career counselling and non-cooperation.

    Teaching Quality

    Faculty should be more cooperative and understand the needs of the students.

  • Fairly good in terms of placements but can be improved

    By Prasanna Kamath (Class of 2020) , 2 months, 2 weeks ago
    For : Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Institute of Technology
    User Rating
    3/5

    College doesn't have huge campus but its still ok, wifi facility is only accessible in library and majority of campus placements are in TCS and Accenture. Faculty for almost all departments are experienced and are good in terms of teaching. Exams are tough but marks are given leniently as it is an autonomous college. Fees depends on your admission test ranking and seat allotments, big chunk of admissions taken through common entrance test of Karnataka (cet-k).

    Campus Location

    The campus is surrounded by Indian Institute of Plantation Management and the noise heard inside campus is mostly of the campus crowd and not from the outside traffic.

    Campus Facilities

    The college has a good infrastructure. The learning environment of the college is good.

    Campus Life

    More importance is given to academic improvements but if you show your extracurricular skills you get encouragement from the management.

    Jobs & Internships

    Average salary package of 3-3.5 lac per annum to max 6 lac per annum.

    Teaching Quality

    Some of the faculty members teach through chalk and board and some teach through audio-visual methods.

    The college looks wonderful from outside. CSE dept is quite well compared to others. If you are not a bright student then they will surely work after you in sem end exams. The basic fee is low as it's aided. Accessibility is high as you can reach almost from any major point. Hostels are in good condition. The library is good just for reference.labs are quite well equipped. Smart classes and projector available classrooms for teaching purposes.
