Companies like Accenture TCS Microsoft Wipro and other reputed companies had a go and many students got placed. Roles were offered depending on the capabilities and skills of the students. College has various Internships offers for students and along with that students also do internships through AIESEC which a famous student group. The placement cell in GITAM University trains the students in the direction of how the interview is going to happen and teach how to prepare for the best.
There is a Wi-Fi facility for all students n faculty and Labs are well-equipped and are very useful for those who are able to utilize it properly. The classrooms are spacious but there is no air conditioning in classrooms though it is there in labs. GITAM University also has its own hospital and students can get treatment for free which is a great thing. The Knowledge Resource Centre KRC is a great place to study and this library has all the books a student would need and also students can prepare here with Air conditioning facility available in the library.
There is also a huge ground and also a cricket stadium which is newly built and has a wide variety of sports and games that can be played. The food quality in canteens is okay to above average and it is pretty reasonable and good for the price. The hostel rooms are good enough for the students to have a decent stay but the hostel rules are too strict for girls. There are various places and good parks to hang out and have a good time on the campus for everyone.
Faculty can be the only drawback as it is not totally up to the mark as there are some faculty who are not fully qualified and have less experience. But the other faculty who are good have very good skills and if they are assigned to your class you will have good experience regarding teaching. There are more than 1200 faculty alone in the GIT department and the student to faculty ratio is decent enough.
Some programs and workshops are always held and students are encouraged to take part in it to get industry exposure and practical knowledge. So if a student is really interested it is a good platform. The course curriculum is a little off as some courses are not really related or required whereas some important courses like Python and IOT etc. Are non-existent. So it can be made better if they can take a proper decision taking the future into consideration.
