The main purpose to write this post is to get you familiar with the name you will soon join or dreaming of being the part of. I hope that you will have a clear idea of what NITs are and what is the life of an NITian, what salary you will expect from here or/and what will be the opportunities you will be getting after entering here.
Every year, thousands of students preparing for JEE join NITs. This post will reveal some common secrets from various NITs.
However, the lifestyle, opportunities and exposer varies from college to college, but here are some things which you can definitely expect from your NIT.
Some of the considerable NIT alumni are N.R. Narayan Murthy: 1981, Rajendra.S.Pawar: 1981, Nikesh Arora: CEO of SoftBank.

#Achadamics in NITs
Just like any other institute we don’t have a very high pressure of study. In fact, we don’t study at all for one or two days before an exam. Teachers here are entrance qualified. Most of the faculties are engaged with international research here. Sometimes they don’t meet the expectations but most of the teachers are knowledgeable and well trained.
#Life in NIT
Life varies from college to college because of the location and geographical constraints. You will find every kind of daily use item inside the campus. Because of the large area required college is often far from the cities but you will find the local bus, auto and NIT bus services from campus to city. Classes are from Monday to Friday and on the 9-5 schedule.
Most of the NITs are strict for girls and they are not allowed to roam after 6-7pm without special permissions.
#Food at NITs
Not like your homes. Food sometimes disappoints every newcomer. But it’s not that bad. Most of the time you have the option to choose from prepaid mess or canteen, so you can choose what you like.
Average salary of an NITian
If you are coming for placements. NIT will not disappoint you if you belong to a circuit branch (Electronics, Electrical, IT, CS etc). There will be enough companies to sit and perform but it will depend on you to get placed.
At the end of the session, most of the people get at least one job from NIT but the stat varies from branch to branch and place to place. After all, it completely depends on you. However, the name of your college largely affects your reputation among other candidates when you will apply off-campus recruitments.
I have something more to update here but will do later.
