Student Reviews

  • btech Student

    Remarks

    For me the best part about the MIT was the overall development one gets here be it studies or sports or other things. They have, variety club, , dance club singer groups (music team), quiz club, box office for film industry-related and much more. The senior-junior relationship is amazing and very much helpful throughout your college life.


    Entrance Exam

    I go admitted based on my TNEA rank but also the college provides admission on the basis of the popular jee mains score. Being a engineering student I have only knowledge of btech/be courses. It is also based on the merit of the student I have heard. I chose this as it one of the largest and most popular university in not only india but world.


    Fees

    The fee is very cheap I paid only about Rs 30k per year which is very manageable. You have to pay the hostel charges extra if you want a hostel. It also provides scholarships to students. But the attendance criteria is very hard as you have to have like 80% if you want to sit. Trust me that a lot of percentage.


    Placements

    I am a student of MIT which is aff to anna. Being a top college of the university we are allowed to attend placements in Guindy campus of Anna University along with the placement on our own. Ike every other engineering college the CS student get more placement as compared to others. Some of the companies which do come for placement are like Accolite, Air Watch, Amazon, Chronus, Citicorp, CTS. If I have to tell the overall placement it is around 60% and if separately for CS/IT students its around 80%.


    Hostel and Facilities

    Yes, hostel facility is provided. The hostel charges are minimum around Rs 15-20k per annum. The mess facilities and timing and quality of food are just very good.


    Alumni

    An annual alumni meet is organized by the college every year. The alumni network of the college is huge. The meet is open to all and a lot of things are done there like conducting mock interviews, current industry scenarios they share with students it will helpful also very inspiring for us.


    Faculty

    Experienced faculty members took special care of the students and their career. The faculty is student-friendly and very knowledgeable they are student of some of the top college in the countries some are even from IIT’s. The best part is other than teaching our syllabus and course they also helped me with career counseling and as well as for my masters entrance tests.


    Campus Life

    The college is rich in extra curricular activities like NCC,NSS. even they encourage students to participate in different types of sports and also tournaments. And there is an annual sports meet where a lot of college participate. It is very competitive as well as exciting. There are lot of Clubs, Committees where you can enroll and find your passion.


    Academics

    There is enough preparatory leave btw the exams which make it very easier to survive. Extraordinary teachers, library's, classroom and lab facilities and exams hall workshop facilities different streams with all facilities both lab and highly knowledge professors and lectures and very good stipend for post graduate and doctorate degree.


    Internships

    No internship is offered by the college but yes, you can get some info from the faculty. Though it is upto you if you want to do the internship. I went out on my own and got an internship they even paid me Rs 5k for 45 days and it was a great learning experience.


    Loans and Scholarships

    A lot of scholarships are provided by the university to meritorious as well as students with weak financial financial background. Make sure you provide genuine documents or it can get cancelled. I am not much aware of the loan facility if provided.

  • btech Student

    Remarks

    The campus of the college is great it has a great atmosphere which i believe is very important for healthy mindful. The crowd is very competitive which is a great thing for me. The management should be a bit more discipline done it already is.


    Entrance Exam

    I got admitted into the college based on my tamilnadu common entrance test as this was the entrance which got you admission in engineering colleges in the state of tamilnadu. I chose this college as it was what i got to get in my score and it is also one of the best colleges in Chennai.


    Fees

    The fee structure is pretty much affordable. My total fees which i have paid is around 30k.


    Placements

    The placement of the college is not that great day and they tell you that you will be played in top companies and the placement rate is 100% but that is not the case. The way of the placements are conducted is not great and only few top ranking students get place and the rest have to find placement on the own.


    Hostel and Facilities

    The college provides hostel facilities but getting the hostel is not that easy and rooms are provided on sharing basis. The mess food is also average and not that good


    Alumni

    I don't exactly know about them and at work but I have been told you can contact them on social media and they are never shy of helping you.


    Faculty

    Faculties bring a lot on the table and have a lot of experience. Most of them have phd and the rest have atleast masters degree. They are caring but some are strict too. Though most of them use old teaching methods and that should change as the times are also changing.


    Campus Life

    Extra curricular college activities are good and students get to explore more than they can normally


    Academics

    exam structure is not that great and does not gives a lot of time with students to prepare. There were not a lot of holidays between the exams and also students were given less marks especially me as I was involved in extra curricular activities I wasn’t considered that great by the faculty and thus was given less marks.


    Internships

    The college does not provide an internship anyone interested they have to get internship on their own. This is i think so one of the major drawbacks of the college and it should work on creating more internship as they are the stepping stones towards words corporate world


    Loans and Scholarships

    As i did not avail any loan facility i don't have much knowledge about but many bank set up their counters during the counseling process and invite students students so i think so you can get loan there though as I have told before too i did not take any loan.

  • mba Student

    Remarks

    There is no bias by the college between the students. I chose admission bcoz the infra of the college was just too good.


    Entrance Exam

    I took admission based on my TANCET entrance test. I scored a very good rank and was given a seat in Anna University during counseling. I wanted to pursue a management course specifically MBA and this was the best option so I took admission here.


    Fees


    Placements

    Around 80-90% of the students were placed in top Banking and Software Support Companies in chennai which includes RBS, HDFC, Tata Consultancy Services and CTS


    Hostel and Facilities

    The hostel facility is provided by the college with seperate boys and girls hostel. Some of the basic facilities provided by the hostel authorities are study table, chair, bed, beddings, internet, common room etc. The hostel have spacious rooms with regualr clearning as well as the has all the basic facilities that should be provided in a hostel.


    Alumni

    The Alumni network is well aligned with various departments and the senior students were very helpful in choosing the right book materials for us for exams. Also they were helpful when we took subjective problems to them for solutions.


    Faculty

    The faculty are highly qualified, most them own PHDs and few of them have already been lecturing in IIMs. Few of them are writing their own books on particular mainstream books. Few of them are already taking PMP, quality classes in Corporate industries in Chennai and Finally not to ignore 2 newly appointed professors but their fairly good in terms of subjective teaching.


    Campus Life

    The campus life of the college is great. It provides a lot of opportunities to showcase your hidden talent. Moreover there are events going about in different fields and the management also encourages you to participate in them actively. But make sure you keep a balance between the academics and activities as I messed up my 1 semester because of this.


    Academics

    The structure of the exam is a bit hectic but I am sure if you study from the starting only then it wont be a big issue for you. The college follows the semester system and there are 2 semester every year. Each semester has mid semesters as well as end semester. But the management should update the syllabus frequently as in some cases the syllabus is very old.


    Internships

    I don’t know much about internships as I haven’t done any.


    Loans and Scholarships

    Yes, various scholarships like PM/CENTRAL scholarships like National Merit Scholarship Scheme, SC/ST Scholarship Scheme are offered.
