Top NITs for MCA

Usually, during the counseling procedures most of the students give preference to NITs in order their seniors told or someone who don't even know the location of that InstituteVery few do actual research about the institute before taking admission.

Note : I had given MCA entrances last year and got ranks in few of them. But due to some reasons I was not able to join in for MCA. Maybe my experience and search on this topic could help students this year to select the best NIT


No. 1 : NIT Trichy
On the top of the list is NIT Trichy. Located in Tamil Nadu.
Website : National Institute of Technology, Tamil Nadu

+ Points :
  • Nice campus.
  • Too good infrastructure.
  • Research oriented study.
  • Highly qualified faculty.
  • Strong interaction between students sharing knowledge and experiences.
  • Rated top Educational institute in India several times by various organizations both at UG and PG level.
  • Placements are good with highest pay package of Rs. 43 lakh per annum.

Some things to look for :
  • Fifty percent reservation for T.N. students. Students with as low as 1008 rank with state quota getting into it. Being in the far south, and majority of students from native state outsiders may find it difficult to adjust in the beginning.

Last year stats (2007) :
In All India General Quota Last seat was filled at Rank 62.
Total seats 60 with 22 open for ALL INDIA level.

  • High placement record with average pay package of 5.2 lakhs.
  • Project based curriculum.
  • Has its own beach.
  • Well established infrastructure.

Some things to look for :
  • No minus points for this NIT only factor is distance from Delhi and food. (does'nt means that food is not good)

Last year stats (2007) :
In All India General Quota Last seat was filled at Rank 167
Total seats 60 with 45 open for ALL INDIA level.

------------------------------------------

No. 3 : NIT Warangal
Placed second by most of students, but not according to my review. Located in Andhra Pradesh. Organized NIMCET 2007.
Website : National Institute of Technology, Andhra Pradesh

+ Points :
  • Well established infrastructure (better than any other NIT).
  • Lush green Campus.
  • Food served in mess is comparatively better with even North Indian food.
  • Near to IT City, Sikandarabad (Hyderabad).
  • Good MNCs visiting campus.
Some things to look for :
  • Same as NIT Trichy. State quota of 50%.

------------------------------------------

No. 4 : NIT Calicut
One of the best placement record (in terms of company visiting). Locatted in Kerala.
Website : National Institute of Technology, Kerala

  • Top recruiters visiting the campus including Google, McAfee, Microsoft, Yahoo etc. some of the exclusively for MCA and Post-Graduate students.
  • Pay package may vary from 6-14 lakhs.
  • Class size small (30 for MCA) with no state quota. Of course, better opportunities.
  • Curriculum is one of the best. Even recognized by recruiters visiting the campus.
  • Student interaction through various clubs.
  • Fee is lowest.

------------------------------------------

No. 5 : MANIT Bhopal
Beautiful city. Location of MANIT is Madhya Pradesh.
Website : National Institute of Technology, Madhya Pradesh

+ Points :
  • Main plus point is the location of NIT i.e. in Bhopal. One of the most beautiful city in India. Considered as city of Lakes.
  • Campus with good infrastructure (not as above 4) covering an area of 650 acres.
  • 93% of students placed. 100% of eligible (without any re-appear) in MCA.

Website : National Institute of Technology, Uttar Pradesh

+ Points :

  • Faculty is Highly Qualified.
  • Hostels connected with Internet.
  • No state quota (Lifted from year 2008).
Some things to look for :

Total seats 60 with 45 for ALL INDIA level.

STUDENTS HAVE IMAGE THAT ALLAHBAD IS GOOD FOR POST GRADUATE COURSES AS WELL. THATS NOT ACTUALLY TRUE. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH FIRST BEFORE LISTENING TO OTHERS.

GREAT post i must say!

Can you also tell your blog readers how to go about preparing for these entrances...

thanks

The Chhamanator said...

Firstly, let me congratulate you in your effort to present an unofficial guide on the different NITs offering MCA courses. I hope it will be of use for many students hoping to join the NITs.
However, I believe some of your points are baseless and not exactly true.
I am currently doing my MCA from MNNIT, Allahabad. But please don't think that this will influence my opinion in any way. You can visit my blog at chhamanator.wordpress.com to read what i feel about MNNIT.
All these being said, I don't know how you can place MNNIT below Calicut and specially Bhopal. I am lucky enough to be able to choose any of the colleges offering MCA according to my rank in NIMCET, even Trichy or Warangal. But due to some unforseen circumstances, I have to choose MNNIT. And I chose it before Surathkal, Bhopal and Calicut because I know the college is better than these other NITs.
I'm wondering why you said MNNIT is not safe for girls. Please elaborate so that I can tell you how safe it is for both male and female students. If you want to know the truth about MNNIT, I'm always here to help you out.

The Fox said...

MNNIT ranked at 6!!! I mean are you sure about your source of information. I know these things are pretty subjective and all..but most ppl would agree that it's in top 3-4.

Who knows where to download XRumer 5.0 Palladium?
Help, please. All recommend this program to effectively advertise on the Internet, this is the best program!

amulya said...

i think you have made the list of top nit for mca without any knowledge and interest. MNNIT Allahabad was the first institute in INDIA to start the study of computer science. this institute was the first to make the counselling of NIMCET online. this institute has set many milestones in the field of computer science . this institute is among top 5 in all over the india in the study of MCA. i think you have zero knowledge in the ranking of institute .MNNIT can not be below 2nd rank
computer science department of MNNIT is much above than that at IT BHU, IIT roorkee,iit GUWAHATI,IIT Chennai.

you should shame on yourself.

I have been visiting various blogs for my term papers writing research. I have found your blog to be quite useful. Keep updating your blog with valuable information... Regards

Mitaksh gupta said...

@rashi you can get nit bhopal but if u get nit calicut it will be better...

Rashi said...

mitaksh

thanks..
but m confused regardimg nit this time. they have asked us three preferences. shud i write
1.) allahabad
2.) calicut
3.) bhopal

as in the preferences?

Abhinav Dua said...

I don't agree with the facts posted for MNNIT ...
first the ranking should be above calicut and bhopal ...
just an exclusive department for MCA IN BHOPAL doesn't mean that it is better than MNNIT ...
nd i hav a question Why it is not recommended for girls ??? who told u that ???
In terms of knowledge sharing .... there are clubs for students like MNNIT COMPUTER CLUB , WEB DEVELOPMENT club..etc.

and even seniors are so helpful that they take classes of weak students on saturdays and sundays.
-> You get full tym high speed FREE INTERNET in rooms and as all the rooms are connected using LAN ... u can share almost any data using DC++.
now if we come to placements ... placements are pretty good .
this year AVERAGE PAY PACKAGE WAS 5 LACS and placements are 100%.
and please CHANGE THE PIC IN FRONT OF MNNIT POST .... THE PIC DISPLAYED IS OF IIIT ALLAHABAD NOT MNNIT

Abhinav Dua said...

Anybody having any kind of confusion can ask here ......

Abhinav Dua said...

@rashi .... with 273 u'll get NIT BHOPAL , u can get NIT CALICUT too ... depends on ur luck .... and for the preferences... ALLAHABAD, CALICUT , BHOPAL is the ryt choice ...

Rashi said...

abhinav.

thanks..
i have a query regarding NIT bhoapl's hostel. i just heard there is just 1 hostel for girls inc fr btech, mba, mca etc. will there be any dificulty in getting hostel there?

Nishant said...

I'm MCA student of MANIT, Bhopal. I secured rank 221 (AIR) from general category. I selected NIT Bhopal, over NIT Calicut as I live in Delhi & Bhopal is much closer.. There is only 1 hostel for girls. But the hostel facility is much better. There are plenty of Boys hostel. Security wise also NIT, Bhopal is good & I liked it.. It was a good choice of mine

Mitaksh gupta said...

yes rashi dat will be the ryt choice.. but according to last year's trend it will be difficult to get calicut but keep ur fingers crossed.. :)

Rashi said...

thanks nishant
but i want to know is there any problem in getting hostel in there. as there is just 1 hostel for girls so lesser no. of room. i dont want to b a paying guest there i will join it only if it guratees to give me a hostel.
can u plz tell me whether they wud provide the hostel accomodation or not? whther i wud get the room there?
plz do reply..

Rashi said...

mitaksh

calicut is too far from delhi so may b i wont opt for it thats why i needed hostel information about nit bhopal.
well as in thanks fr ur help :)

@Shaina, did you mean PU? If yes, you should not think twice. That is still one of the best choice for MCA!

I wanted to know if thre is Hostel facility in Bhopal for MCA boys syudent?? also any one have idea abot the highest salry packages of last year??

shaina said...

Hey..plz suggest me is NIT jamshedpur better than colleges affiliated to pune university??

NavSha said...

With an AIR 1659 should I consider going for vacant seats allotment to be conducted at NIT,Bhopal on 4th July? VIT(arguably better than the non-top NITs) is the only option left with me and I have already received the provisional admission letter from it.

Abhinav Dua said...

@rajshree
vanasthali vidyapeeth(jaipur) is surely gud w.r.t. studies but i hv no idea of placements there .... and its not easy to compare institutes unless we knw the placement records ... nd generally colleges do not disclose the average packages their students obtain
...

Abhinav Dua said...

@shaina
It depends that which college u get in pune .... b.t.w. there z a notice in NIT JAMSHEDPUR website that this year HOSTEL accommodation will not be provided to MCA students.So think twice before gng there....

Abhinav Dua said...

@Abhishek
if we go with the last yr. seat allotment then u'll get NIT RAIPUR otherwise u still hv option for the vacant seats ...

Abhinav Dua said...

@navsha
with 1659 rank u cn opt for the vacant seat allotment .... coz last yr NIT KURUKSHETRA's last seat was filled at 1750 rank ( not sure abt the xact rank but was in 1700's range). Now there can be 2 choices -
1.u'll get NIT
2.u'll not get NIT
nw if u don't get NIT then no option will be left only VIT
BUT if u get any NIT , then u hv to decide where u have to go.
it'll be ur decision that whether u want to stay near ur home or not ... and many other things u hv to consider before taking admission .... so think wisely !!!

shaina said...

@Abhinav Dua yup..i know they r not providing hostel this year..thats y m confused..
Do you have any idea about Sinhgad institute of management in pune?Is it good?

Abhinav Dua said...

@shaina
NO, sorry i hv no idea abt this institue .....

Abhishek said...

been alloted NIT raipur in thrd round... should i go for it or wait IP counseling... got 478 rank in IP... reply ASAP

shaina said...

@Abhishek Dua
Anywaz,Thank u fr d help :)

Abhinav Dua said...

@abhishek
accd. to me ... u should go for IP bcoz wtever i have heard about MCA in NIT raipur is not good..... with 478 u'll get a decent college and if we look by the placements view then too there were only 12 students placed in last session ... its just an advice ... rest z ur decision ... but ya keep in mind that atleast NIT raipur is giving placements .... some of the colleges in IP are not even able to give placements ... so all the best ...
