What Students Say About These Colleges

MNNIT Allahabad Review


The coding culture of NIT Allahabad is great. Technical fests are good.
There are lot of other clubs like LIT Club, Quiz Club, etc which remain active throughout the year. So it’s not just academics. You will get a lot of exposure and will be learning a lot.  If you choose IT in this institute, then there is a huge chance to get a high profile job.

Hostels for 2nd, 3rd or final year students are not that good.
There is less focus on sports in NIT Allahabad. Not because of students but because of management. 
Research facilities are not good in MNNIT Allahabad. The conditions of labs are also not good for few departments.

No city life, NIT Kurukshetra is quite far from the city area. Infrastructure is not that well maintained. Most of the Lab equipment is not working properly except in the computer department. The syllabus is outdated.
