MOHIT KUMARB.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering | 2024 | 1 month ago
NIT Patna is overall a medium level tier 2 nit located in the main city of campus .Placements are good but not that much when compared to other nits like Jamshedpur or Durgapur .The main problem with the college is the too small campus of just 40 acres which is quite bad .The hostel conditions are also not that good for a fresher here .But with the development of its new campus in Bihta ,I think the accommodation problems would be fairly solved .
