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).

Kazipet-Warangal -How 2 get there ..

   Kazipet is a town in Warangal district, Andhra Pradesh, India, one of the tri-cities of Warangal-Hanamakonda-Kazipet.
   Kazipet is famous for being a major railway junction and locomotive maintenance division in Andhra Pradesh after Vijayawada. The railway junction is located next to a large granite hill (known as bodigutta), which is used to house radio communications, presumably for the railways. It is the hub connecting North and South, East and West India with more than 60 trains passing through.
   One of India’s best engineering institutes (National Institute of Technology, Warangal- NIT) is located in Kazipet. Also the Kakatiya University and the Kakatiya Medical college attached to the MGM govt. hospital is the third largest medical college in the state.

   Warangal is located at 18°00’N 79°35’E / 18.0°N 79.58°E. It has an average elevation of 302 metres (990 feet). Warangal is 145 km northeast of the state capital of Hyderabad. It is the fourth largest city in Andhra Pradesh.Warangal was the capital of a Hindu Shaivaite kingdom ruled by the Kakatiya dynasty from the 12th to the 14th centuries.The old name of this newly formed city is Orugallu. ‘Oru’ means one and ‘Kallu’ means stone. The entire city was carved in a single rock, hence the name Orukallu meaning ‘one rock’. The city was also called Ekasila nagaram. The Kakatiyas left many monuments, including an impressive fortress, four massive stone gateways, the Swayambhu temple dedicated to Shiva, and the Ramappa temple situated near Ramappa Lake. The cultural and administrative distinction of the Kakatiyas was mentioned by the famous traveller Marco Polo.
   A STPI (Software Technology Parks of India) has been set up at National Institute of Technology, Warangal with the intention of taking the benefits of the Information Technology revolution to second tier cities. Warangal makes an excellent location for this because of its proximity to Hyderabad, the student pool from some of the best institutes in the country, good transportation facilities, infrastructure, lower traffic problems, etc.Warangal is known for its granite quarries (notably the black and brown varieties), grain market (for rice and chillies), cotton, and tobacco.
