career goals in that segment

 

However, for better and higher career prospects
M.Tech /
MBA is recommended.

 

 

which to choose?

 

If
you are comfortable with basic science and are more inclined to
non-technical aspects of science, B.Sc is a good choice, and coupled with
M.Sc you can make good progress in your career.

 

 

If you are interested in the technical side of
science, designs, calculations etc., and ready to do take on a demanding and
challenging route, B.Tech is the right choice
.

NIT Warangal – FAQs

This is from

http://agpweb.wordpress.com/category/nit-warangal/ by Ajay George Palakuzhy

NIT Warangal for the Aspirant : A collection of valuable information about the prestigious institution National Institute of Technology,Warangal (NIT Warangal)for the future NITians as well as for anyone who would like to know more about this college

Sadly there is no authoratative guide on the net regarding this issue.

So I thought about writing this one…

NIT Warangal has always been on the list of the best technical education institutes

in India.Facilities are at par with the best in the country and the highly experienced faculty adds to the strong academic curriculum.

Admission process for NIT Warangal is through the AIEEE examination and there is state wise quota.

There is a separate admission process for Foreign Students (DASA Scheme).

Popular FAQ:

1. The first question that comes to the mind is where is Warangal?
Ans: Warangal is one of the best cities in Andhra Pradesh,just 2 hours from Hyderabad.Reaching Warangal is just child’s play.Warangal is well connected by both road and rail.

All the trains on the Delhi Route stop by Warangal.Alternatively you can reach ‘Kazipet’ as the college is nearer to it.(But guys from Kerala , remember no direct train stops at Kazipet.Catch the Kerala Exp or an alternate train.)

2. I reached Warangal,where is the college(NIT Warnagal)?
Ans: From the Warangal station it is just half an hour on the Autorickshaw (autos are the popular means of commutation not buses.)It will cost you around 40-50 bucks (depending upon your negotiation skill) and if you are travelling alone you can have a ’share auto’ (autos look the same,but say direct for direct auto) for Rs 8-10.

3.Ok, now I reached the college,where is the counselling centre?
Ans: You will be guided to the centre by the volunteers at the gate,Don’t panic.We will be there to guide you.

The counselling should go fine and you can give your options and see around the college.

The Central Library is sure to stun you (one of the best technical libraries in the country) and the new administrative block is going to be an architectural wonder.(Hope that the construction is complete.)

4. Oh my god this place is infested with naxalites!!!
Never.This has been the question put forward by most of the parents with whom I interacted…

They were a thing of the past,you can safely send your ward over…

5. Which bank operates closest to NITW?
State Bank of Hyderabad has a college branch and an ATM. Most of us use the SBH and many have an account also.

Let me share a cool hack.Instead of opening an account you could give your son/daughter the ATM card of the account at home (All State Bank cards are taken,along with some other banks) saving you the trouble of going through the process of actually creating one.

Other than SBH, we have Andhra Bank,ICICI at Hanamkonda (10 minutes from the college by auto).

NIT Warangal – What to pack for hostel?

Yipee! Glorious NITW life beacons..but hey!? WHAT SHOULD I PACK FOR HOSTEL??

 Don’t worry … E.E will help you out :)..Here are the bare essentials :

  1. Mattress for the metal cot that will be provided.
    In the hostel room will be provided a metal cot, a table and a cupboard(with or without a door), one tubelight, 4 switchboards, 2 fans. The windows have  a mesh or screen to keep out the mosquitoes.
    Vendors selling Mattresses at nominal rates (Rs 200-300 – depending on how well you bargain)sit outside the Hostel Office from the Registration days till 1st day of college.
    Also you’ll find Airtel, Vodafone etc.  people selling SIM cards, plans etc. 
  2. Bucket and Mug
    For the first year girls Last Year, 4 bathrooms , 3 toilets and 2 basins had to be shared between 32 girls. This year , life will be a lot more comfortable for the guys, since the New Mega Hostels are ready to be ocupied! The New Girls Hostels are under construction and will be ready by next year…
  3. Your Clothes ofcourse and hardy shoes- Girls – remember to pack in all your Salwar Kameezes, get some stitched if you don’t have any..heed my advice,you’ll be thankful later! – Guys – Take out those formal striped shirts and trousers, no not the jeans , the cloth material stuff.
  4. The usual toiletries – soap, shampoo, clothes washing soap(get the cheap varieties-the washing ladies are not all that sincere), maybe Prill Dishwash liquid, Odomos – Is Absolutely Necessary if you are sensitive to mosquitoes.
    There are several washing ladies in the girls hostel. They charge Rs.60/month to wash your clothes everyday. You need to put your dirty laundry and soap/detergent in your bucket(you need to write your name on the bucket) and place it outside your door before locking up your room for college. The washing lady you Recruit(..lol..eng’neerin coll terminology) will wash your clothes and put in to dry on the clothesline in fronth of your room.
    The Ironing Man takes in youer clothes once every 3 days.
  5. You might want to get a plate, glass , bowl.
    The Messes provide 3 meals a day + tea in the evenings. Saturday night no dinner is served, its called “Dry Mess”. And college students get pretty hungry.. You’l need your utensils to serve the very  famous Maggi, we people seem to survive on :).

IMPT – There are several supermarkets and shops at walking distance from the campus to buy all these Bare Essentials.. I would advise you to buy whatever you can from Warangal. Get just the most essential items from home.. cause even then, I’m predicting, your suitcases’ll be pretty heavy :).

Also, keep in mind, at the end of the year, you need to vacate your rooms. Yea! thats right..you have to carry your stuff home or leave it in trunks in the “cloak  room”..

NIT Warangal – Getting there

NITW entrance

NITW entrance

The deemed university.. ‘The’ National Institute of Technology, Warangal is about 10 minutes distance from Kazipet station.
It takes about 30 minutes from Warangal station.

Kazipet Junction

Kazipet Junction

Warangal was the capital city of the Kakatiya Dynasty. There are tens and hundreds of beautiful temples crammed all about the city to soothe your mums strained nerves :).

The Thousand-Pillar Temple

The Thousand-Pillar Temple

The road to the institute from Kazipet is lined with several small shops,bakeries (only the ‘cold’ pinapple pastries are any good), passing over a flyover, at the end of which, a right turn will take you to a very good St.Anne’s hospital run by nuns. Further ahead right turns will take you to a dargah , another right turn leading to a church. Then, a left turn will take you to Waddepali lake and temple.

Warning to all prospective students – The Rickshaw drivers are atrocious cheaters – They should be paid only Rs. 30-35 for the journey, with luggage, till inside the NIT campus. You can ask you to drop you till the NIT auditorium or Girls/Boys Hostel. The drivers are all mostly aware of the layout of the campus.

Rickshaw charges are otherwise- Rs. 4-6 per person…the rickshaw stops along the way picking passengers travelling to the same destination. You also have the option of taking a Rick ‘direct’ , ie. only you will travel in the rick. You have to say for ex. ” Hanumakonda chowrasta- DIRECT” . The Rick driver will charge you around Rs 20 for the journey.
Hanumakonda chowrasta, anyway, is the chief shopping centre NIT studdents go to. It is Rs. 6/person away from the NIT campus. Trinethra super market and ‘Reliance Fresh’ is Rs.4/person away. ‘Suprabha’ 5-star hotel and ‘Mitra’ hotelis Rs.5-6 away. Continue reading

BITSAT

 
The last exam for most students..Question are just a bit more difficult compared to AIEEE,lot simpler than IITJEE. Speed is the key for this exam.
After the initial identity verification and submission of print – out of admit form students are ushered into the computer centre. They are then each given a blank booklet on which is written the number of the computer assigned to us. This booklet is to be used for calculation and rough work.
Students are then asked to take their places in fronth of the numbered computer screens. The students has to type in their roll no. on the screen and their picture with their roll no. below appears.
Several invigilators keep moving aroung the room. Computer screens are placed as in internet cafes, so that one student cannot look into the other’s screen.If there is any problem whatsoever the invigilators are always at hand to sort it out. Students then have to wait till the invigilator announces it’s time to start and the BITSAT test appears on the screen. The test looks exactly like the Sample test on the official website, except it has more question ofcourse 🙂
Students can complete and submit their test any time , withen the 180 minutes alloted . The number of correct and wrong answers and your score will appear immediately on the screen.
You are then free to leave…………a free bird…………holidays for you at last…… 🙂 🙂

AIEEE counselling procedure …

http://moneyandorp.blogspot.com http://mysticalorp.blogspot.com

My AIEEE result was out last year on June 3rd. According to the information brocure online( I’d registered online for the exam) I was to attend counselling on 6th July. Off – campus counselling was to be held from June 23rd to 29th . WHile the on-campus one was to begin on July 4th for AIR 1- 5000, July 5th for AIR 5000- 10,000 and so on.

The off -campus counselling was kind of like a dress rehearsal to the main on-campus counselling.

On-Campus ie. counselling in the campus of the NIT of the state from where you gave your exam, involves waiting for your turn in a big hall, after requisite identity verifications , signing of documents selecting prioritywise a list of college and branch on the computer in the hall.

This procedure may vary from NIT to NIT but in NIT Nagpur or VNIT as its called it was like this. There was also a big sceen on which the most recent status of seats available was visible . By recent I mean the number of seats left after allocation of seats to students who attended counselling on the previous day. This seat status is available on the official website everyday as well, updated after 4pm when counselling for a certain day is done.

You should come prepared to stay the night in the counselling city, your seat allocation is displayed the next day on the counselling campus as well as on the official website. I had to then take a printout from the website of my allotment. Now remember, THE COLLEGE THAT YOU ARE NOW ALLOTED CANNOT BE CHANGED. If you want some other AIEEE college you’l have to wait for counselling next year .

Withen a certain date I was instructed to go to the NIT I waas alloted to fill my fees and take admission. Suppose you don’t turn up within this time to pay your fees, your admission is cancelled. Your seat is given to somone who opted for form 2 during counselling.

So, well in the off-campus counselling, comfortably from your home (you need net connection at home ofcourse) you have to register for on-campus counselling. Then you are shown the same computer screen you will see in the counselling hall when you will punch in your final choices.You can type in your priority list( if you read my posts regularly you’d have already made this list) .

The next day the computer will tell you what college and branch you will be alloted based on your priority list. You can immediately make changes to your list , the next day the computer will again tell you which college you will be alloted based on your modified priority list. REMEMBER, THIS PRIORITY LIST IS IN NO WAY RELATED TO THE LIST YOU TYPE IN DURING ON-CAMPUS COUNSELLING. You may change your list altogether or type in the same list again during on-campus.

Procedure for AIEEE counselling.. Good College vs Favourite Stream

http://mysticalorp.blogspot.com/ http://moneyandorp.blogspot.com/

With soooo many colleges..sooo many branches…and your career at stake, counselling can get quite confusing.. I know a few friends who made an ill-informed decision regarding their choice of college and are now cribbing and crying at their fate.

A good college will get you the best placement available to a student of your capabilities. Or if you’re planning on further studies, IITs , BITs and NITs are the few Indian universities that are well-known abroad , which will make it easier for you to get accepted in an esteemed institute or obtain that wonderful scholarship.

Hence I couldn’t overemphasise how necessary it is that a student is aware of which college, which stream , in which part of the India you will be interested in..especially the girls.

In my case, my parents told me at the last minute ,the day before I was to fill my AIEEE college choices, that I shouldn’t opt for NIT jaipur or calicut or kurukshetra..They were worried about my safety in the north , these places were too far away from my home in Pune. Luckily I got the branch of my choice (Biotechnology)in a good NIT (warangal)+ my parents were happy too cause I have relatives in Secunderabad,which is 2 hours from Warangal. My AIR was 10,068.

It is very necessary that you keep your options flexible…

Make a list of minimum 20 options – in order of priority .

Your columns should be 1)College

2)Stream you are interested in,in that college

3)Which part of india the college is in

Ofcourse , choosing a good college should be your priority..

But suppose you clear JEE, don’t know how to draw yet take Naval architecture ,because thats the only option available to you in IIT , while you could get EEE(assume you’re interested in this ) in NIT warangal, I’d say you’re doomed. You’l strugle with your academics all the time, you’l get the lowest CGPA( cause you’l be one of the highest ranks in IIT), you won’t be happy ..

Now if you’d taken EEE, you’d do well academically, have loads of free time for other hobbies and personality development(important too) ,you’d be happy . Like ‘The Alchemist’ emphasised – Our personal calling in that which “fills us with enthusiasm”.. You cannot achieve success in that which you donot put your heart and soul into, or by forcing yourself to do it when you don’t want to . The best part is that there is high probability that you’l get ECE(which has more market value as of now) after the sliding procedure.

Especially since this recession has increased the importance of a student knowing his/her subject matter well .Until last year student from all possible branches got sucked into the IT industry for obscenely inflated salaries. But not anymore cause the IT industry is down, its stagnating..Biotechnology is the future 🙂

But as I said earlier a good college is of utmost importance too. The best companies (ie the ones that are still recruiting) the best jobs will come only to the best colleges.

K.. I guess you’re a lil confused, think over it, what are these 2 months holidays for anyway?

State board or CBSE for 11th ,12th

 

12th board marks arn’t really a priority for someone who wants to pursue engineering.Only certain minimum marks are required to be eligible for entrance exams which are ever more important , like IITJEE needs minimum 60%.To appear for BITSAT you’l need 80%..thats the highest you’l have to study for, and believe me noone will ever ask you bout your 12th marks after the initial ‘how you done’s,but your entrance exam ranks will decide your life..almost :)..

The syllabus for JEE, BITSAT, AIEEE and VITEEE are pretty similar , to each other and similar to the CBSE syllabus. Since board exams are not a priority ,there is an argument that students should join a state board college ,since in Maharashtra the academics are less time-consuming and easier compared to CBSE and ICSE.

I disagree though. From personal experience I can say that my CBSE high school education helped my tremendously in clearing AIEEE.If you want to focus on MHT-CET then you should go ahead with a HSC college, though why should a student aim for somthing low-gain when he might as well give a few of the most prestigious exams in the country a try.

A few more points

1) 12th HSC boards test both 11th and 12th syllabus, while CBSE tests only 12th syllabus.

2)The HSC syllabus is about 75% different from other exams. There is ample time after the other exams to brush up and learn the CET syllabus for CBSE students since JEE and AIEEE are held in April while CET is held in May.

JEE, AIEEE, BITSAT differ barelt 5% from each other . JEE is about 20% less that CBSE 11th and 12th syllabus , but has to be explored and understood far more in detail.

AIEEE syllabus is the same as CBSE.

BITSAT ans VITEEE are similar ,include a few more topics, delete a few.

http://indiaeducation.net/Engineering/Entrance-Exams/index.asp

So Gals and Guys, 11th and 12th are 2 very crucial years for those who want to make somthing of their lives..you have to study really really hard.
I’d said ‘almost’ earlier. I also know loads of people who decided ‘I’m going to shut out my life, my only priority is studies’. These guys will remain cooped up indoors all day with no time-out, no resfeshment, at the same time they might not even do very well academically.
The key is to maintain a healthy balance of studies and a little physical activity and enjoyment to keep the brain fit and happy.Not too much also because remember you’re investing your time and effort for wonderful rewards later in life.
