Student Reviews

  • btech Student


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.
