VIT campus is spread across 7 acres of land lined up with a mixture of academic buildings and greenery but nothing extraordinary. It’s like… The expectations are very high and when you go there you get lasun. 7 acres of space is kinda less. Canteen is spacious but not that impressive when it comes to the quality and quantity of food being served there.
Though the cut-off is very high, the crowd here is not that bad. There are nerds but the crowd in all is enthusiastic and fun-loving.
VIT Pune conducts Melange towards the end of January which every engineering student all over Pune looks forward to attend. The Sports fest, Vishwakarandak, is held in December and also quite popular.
Placements are pretty decent in VIT with companies like Forbes Marshall, Fiat, Tata motors, Infosys, etc being the major recruiters. The average salary offered is 4 lacs however, there have been occasions where students have managed to bag salary package of around 10-15 lacs.
The general opinion of the crowd about the faculty is decent. Their communication skills are pretty solid. Though we didnt get good feedback about the faculty of Computer Engineering, we are giving a high 8 rating for VIT faculty.
75% is the red-line! You just cant afford to go below this. Heavy fines and detention enforced on the trespassers.
The fees in VIT Pune crosses 1 lakh and ranges somewhere between 1.1 – 1.25 lakh. A big thumbs down.
Let’s be honest here, VIT is for the cry babies who couldn’t get into CoEP. The college per se is an awesome experience and you wouldn’t rue about it.
