What is the best thing about NIT Durgapur?

What is the best thing about NIT Durgapur?

The best thing about NIT Durgapur is the bunch of situations it puts you in, and then you learn to stand up stronger after every fall. The outside world is more difficult, but you are a more capable person in terms of survival in that world, after the NITDgp phase ends.

I will not say that all situations are good and I really hope things improve. The apathy of the administration and some cold professors really boiled my blood, and some classmates also back then. But once I got out of it, all I remembered was the good things and the lessons learned from the worst.

Example: I had my physical education

The best thing about NIT Durgapur is the bunch of situations it puts you in, and then you learn to stand up stronger after every fall. The outside world is more difficult, but you are a more capable person in terms of survival in that world, after the NITDgp phase ends.

I will not say that all situations are good and I really hope things improve. The apathy of the administration and some cold professors really boiled my blood, and some classmates also back then. But once I got out of it, all I remembered was the good things and the lessons learned from the worst.

Example: I had my physical education exam just after Durga Puja, when all the students were going home. The PE instructor couldn't reschedule me for a damn test (running, push-ups, etc) the next day when I said I was having trouble with tickets and wouldn't be arriving that day. He could have told me to write a letter so that I could appear together with the next group the next day (I didn't see a problem with that), but what he said was "Talk to the DEAN." How is a freshman supposed to know how to proceed? When I walked in with a letter to the DEAN, what he said was "How dare you come to my room?"

I was shocked. He had probably put in more effort than they ever had to get into college and that's how they behaved.

Another, Senior Junior interaction is well within healthy limits. But what good is hurting yourself physically for no reason? I remember some students going to the medical units with cuts on their faces! Get out of college and try me on my friend. If you're reading this and you've ever hurt someone physically and legitimately, you shouldn't have been born, let alone join a nationally important university that you delay. Period.

I tried to diffuse the proper interaction when I became a senior, but failed to completely eliminate such practices, as few of my younger ones became what I feared they would become. Thanks to the influence.

One of the teachers asked me to go out instead of making the classes less boring. And after I go out, the professor asks me for my list number to terrify me.

Once, an accountant refused to sign an official letter asking permission for a club activity. And the reason was: "It is now 5.30 pm". Yes, I deal with those people even today, when we depend on some central government departments for permits. I am more patient now!

The department professors made us run for signatures dozens of times. When someone comes to me today, I try not to be. I immediately attend to people's work and hope that others will do the same for me as well.

My parents kept telling me one thing: “Diamonds were once stones, they survived all the heat. You will be one, one day! "

I kept that thought in my head and never gave up. And I will never do it. I don't even remember the names, but I'm sure those people will come back. I will hold back when necessary, as I had to, in college, but as long as I do not have to tolerate, I will show those people their place and if they repeat the same, they have chosen a terrible fate!

That's the good thing that happened through the NIT Durgapur experience. I know when to be patient and when not to. I am aware of the deadlines and hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

As Arrow says, "You can't afford to fall apart when people look up to you."

I agree with the other two answers… Bongs (they are really amazing), location (definitely).

In my opinion, I would say that it is Freedom, which makes NITDGP one of the best.

You can roam almost anywhere at any time No questions asked, you can drink almost anywhere at any time No questions asked. You can do all your little adventures that you can think of. If you want, you can even enter the academic building, go to your apartment, sit right outside your class, drink like hell all night (unofficially). Believe me all that is possible. When in your hostel you are the boss ... do what your crazy mind can imagine

When you are the boss at your hostel ... do what your crazy mind can imagine ... when outside the hostel again do what you can imagine, just make sure you have the right company.

This university is made to give you free rein! Trust me, you have more in store than you can imagine!

I'll keep it very precise:

  1. Ragging: memories for a lifetime.
  2. Culture: If you are not from WB, you will explore a lot about INDIA.
  3. Facing challenges: Very often you will have to deal with some teachers, people and the history of the short-tempered system of most governments. colleges. It will teach you that life is not an easy road and you will be prepared for surprises.
  4. Freedom: I have been to quite a few IIT / NIT and let me tell you that NIT Durgapur moves in terms of freedom. You can literally do anything on campus with minimal restrictions.
  5. Campus: it is quiet, green and full of nature, the best for nature lovers.

Derision. That changed my life completely. Before that, I was a backward guy of complete rural origin.

Now I can survive anywhere.

Take pride in being a NITian.

The university itself is located in the heart of the city, unlike many other universities that are located in the suburbs. This in turn allows easy accessibility, in terms of transportation, as well as to shopping centers, bookstores or food establishments.

Without a doubt Ragging .. The best part of NIT Durgapur that will be missed by each and every student at the university.

The only thing missing in my life would be the NIT Durgapur himself.

A few words of reverence from me ...

I am a student in the biotechnology branch of NIT Durgapur. NITDurgapur itself has given me lasting memories for a lifetime.

As beginners, you would be very honored to have entered here.

You walk through this door when Alice enters her wonderland.

This is where it all started ...

If you never loved Hall -9, then you don't have a heart!

I started with all the new faces around, I didn't know anyone except some older people. They were supportive and fun loving. We spent many memorable and enjoyable moments with them. Lif

You walk through this door when Alice enters her wonderland.

This is where it all started ...

If you never loved Hall -9, then you don't have a heart!

I started with all the new faces around, I didn't know anyone except some older people. They were supportive and fun loving. We spent many memorable and enjoyable moments with them. Life was pretty exciting then with zone calls late at night or early in the morning. Sometimes you had to jump off the deck out of trouble (too much fun). You get to interact with over 550 new faces who have left home for their careers and build a bond with them that is sure to last at least a lifetime. These idiots were smart, very helpful.

You know that the exams are held twice a semester, the mid-sem and end-sem exams and the entire CGPA Locha. You get to know stories / incidents about your seniors, what college was when they were in 1st year or about their seniors (success, failure, mixed emotions, etc.). You also hear profanity like CGPA doesn't matter, it's knowledge that matters. But as you go along you realize that a decent CGPA is required.

The boring and worthless ...

And that..

Very few survive the first week (I am 8+ :-p) while most ruin the first week as they become more familiar with the system. Plus, you're struggling to keep your mandatory 75% attendance.

But as you start to get acquainted with everything here, you will become prone to frustrations and disappointments from the unpredictability of the teachers, the hostel conditions that are far from clean, the messy food should be called "dirty food", etc.

Second Sem! It's time I (at least) pulled my socks up!

It was time to pull the gears. I had a poor performance in my last week and wanted to get a score of 9+ in this week (on the day of the result after each week, you have the same feeling "is sem me toh man lagake padhunga")

However, after all this harshness and harshness, you will find NIRVANA, among friends who will share common emotions as you would. In addition, you will have Internet connectivity with Mbps speed, madness and madness being squeezed out of very vulgar jargon. alcohol and weeds (although I never use drugs or alcohol not even ciggi). You start attending club-run workshops to help students get started on their passions (robotics, development, design, etc.) and then when you go into your sophomore year, you realize the futility of most of them.

And then you find happiness in gossip and addas with “good but unsanitary food” at on-campus recreation venues: Dining Hall 5, Techno (for snacks), LH more (near campus durga mandir), Jhoops (we all love Deba gives).

We all love to eat delicious dishes, don't we? Every now and then you and your group visit a small selection of restaurants, namely Mainland China, Lemon Grass, City Residency, Theque, Layeks, Durgapur House, Dosa Plaza, Mumbai Spices, Hong Kong, Ananyas, Talk of the City and many other small and large restaurants here and there.

You start to attend club recruitment. Competitions and festivals (calls for seniors) keep you working. The festivals are full of fun and working for the clubs increases your teamwork skills, your ability to work under pressure, and also improves your skills.

By fest I meant:

This is the NIT culture that you have Recstacy in, 20 days before the exam, but before the end a series of class tests and lab tests are done. God, I don't know how long I studied then: P.

Holi be like ...

I entered the Department of Biotechnology in 2nd year for the 1st time. We have the roll numbers of our department (12 / BT / ??). At that time the entire department was being renovated. Couldn't pique my interest, sorry about that. Though out of the way, a girl (I won't name her) came into my life (I loved her but she pretended).

Sometimes we would ...

You correctly guessed your duck pond. You're smiling right? The reasons may vary from one to another. Well yes, you must go to the duck pond once to witness the serene beauty of the sunset. But keep in mind the time and the company you will be with. The guards! You know what I mean!

or

I think some of you may be smiling right now! But rumors are inevitable, you know! Better not say much. : P Ssshhh!

I was doing well in my semesters, not so well (about 8.7 sgpa), but it was satisfactory. The second and third years were more than working hard to secure a decent job in the last year (everyone is aware of the limited opportunities that the Biotechnology department has in placements).

In the 5th semester they dumped me (for being a good boy I guess) but I was rewarded with 9 points for the first time. There was a period of depression that followed. I missed my sixth semester entirely and then was diagnosed with jaundice during our mandatory summer internship (thanks to DMC's water treatment plant I managed to somehow).

Final year:

Our school reopened and this time he enters the school with last year's loot, Baap every two years. However, you are concerned about your placement that will begin in 15 days.

The frustrations can be clearly seen on the faces of the Biotech students. I was also the Training and Placement Representative (TPR) of my department, so everyone came to me to ask about things only related to placements and companies, and I had to convey to them the sad reality of our department's placements at our university. I was lucky that my hard work paid me off and I was placed in phase 0. Most of my peers had to wait until the massive companies.

And then you get ...

I was pretty relaxed after work and very confident (breaking phase 0). I needed a period of solitude to rekindle myself, reinvent myself (side effects of a breakup) and the seventh week was over in the blink of an eye.

In the eighth week, I started to have fun, to enjoy myself, to walk to CC almost every day, to dine out, to freak out for no reason.

But finally I want to thank my school for making me what I am today, able to sustain me everywhere with any type of food (making my eating habits more flexible) and my self-development and I thank all my friends, who believe that I am worth. a friend. I dive into the sea of ​​nostalgia thinking about them.

For me, life at NIT Durgapur has been amazing and I hope that the students who join the university have a similar experience as well.

Let me be honest with you. I am currently studying at NIT Durgapur, and there is very little to be proud of.

  • Management is very very bad. Here nothing happens on time, everything is delayed. I spent my whole first year without WiFi, because the routers had been stolen by the old people. Instead of taking any action, they lounged all year long waiting for the seniors to pay the fine (which they didn't), and as a result, the students had no viable internet. However, thank goodness for Mukesh Ambani and his Jio.
  • The infrastructure is terrible. Bathrooms are run-down and cleanliness is very spotty.

Instead of taking any action, they lounged all year long waiting for the seniors to pay the fine (which they didn't), and as a result, the students had no viable internet. However, thank goodness for Mukesh Ambani and his Jio.
  • The infrastructure is terrible. Bathrooms are run-down and cleanliness is very spotty. The shelters are dirty and the classrooms have broken lights and fans in inconvenient places. Each room is equipped with a microphone and smart screen, which are for display only.
  • Management has handled rattle very well, but only due to dire cases in the past. The system that exists today is easily managed, but many opportunities are lost if you do not indulge in rags. The university never verifies this.
  • The festivals here are a shadow of the college festivals elsewhere. The biggest turnout is freshmen not knowing what to drag out of their room. Nobody else here even bothers to go to festivals, and well-known universities from other parts of India don't participate either.

This is an exhaustive list of cons, so I must mention the pros.

  • It is a college of National Importance. Not only is it something to be proud of, but it also helps when you go abroad for further study. The brand matters.
  • The competition is very high due to the large number of students from all over India. It will not be easy to be the best.
  • NIT Durgapur is the only university in India that has a majority relationship with CERN, sending more than 4 students each year for summer internships.
  • The teachers are all masters of the subject, although there are some strange eggs.
  • It is without a doubt better than any private university in India (not counting BITS), with good locations and many deserving students who have come here as a direct result of their hard work, not money.
  • He is not a rare professional, but the current fees for B.Tech 4 years are only 5 lakhs, which would help you save money for additional studies. That too, there are trade-offs on this based on family income.

These are the pros and cons. I'll let you be the judge of what suits you best. This is just an honest review.

Durgapur National Institute of Technology has been ranked 8th by NIRF (2019) among NITs, the same rating agency that ranks IIIT Hyderabad at 39th overall and VIT much higher. So there is certainly ambiguity here.

Speaking of teaching, it's nice that some teachers outside of the class are Google AI scholars and some of them really pathetic with no teaching skills. Well, there are certainly many opportunities if you are sincere here and work hard. Many students every year from here go to CERN, Switzerland for internships, they participate in ACM-ICPC. Well this year, 25 teams first

Speaking of teaching, it's nice that some teachers outside of the class are Google AI scholars and some of them really pathetic with no teaching skills. Well, there are certainly ample opportunities if you are sincere here and work hard. Many students every year from here go to CERN, Switzerland for internships, they participate in ACM-ICPC. Well, this year, 25 teams in the first year alone participated in the online contests. Many international conferences take place here throughout the year ranging from environmental issues to artificial intelligence, as expected from an 'Institute of National Importance'.

The infrastructure here is more than good and sufficient for a good university life. The newly constructed hallways for children are up to par with high standards. The campus has seen rapid infrastructure improvement. Arriving at the sports facilities, we have 2 basketball courts, badminton court, tennis court, soccer field, etc. to meet the needs of our students. You can see it yourself in the pictures. We also organize the second largest festival in Southeast Asia: AAROHAN and tech festivals. The campus is always full of life. We also have a significant population of international students here from other countries and an international airport is available nearby to facilitate travel.

Coming to the locations, the CSE department here records the highest stats with over 90% locations with companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Goldman Sachs, etc., visiting here. The highest package last year (2018) was 39 lpa bagged by 11 students. There have also been international placements in the past: Google USA had offered 95lpa to a student for an international position in Mountain View, California. We're not even talking off campus here, so the list would be extended to Tower Research Capital and Facebook. If you can prove your CP and project skills, companies easily hire you.

Overall, the campus gives you ample opportunities to grow, appreciate your hobbies ranging from coding clubs like Recursion, GLUG (open source) to SPIC Macay and Robotics. Obviously the campus and NIT won't spoon feed you. Rather, it is presented as an opportunity that you will have to exploit.

There are two sides to every coin, as with this and other NITs and even IITs. It is completely up to you how you seize the opportunity.

Well that's my campus. I hope you like it.

As a student at NIT Durgapur, I went through the same circumstances in my first year of university. When leaving home for the first time, newbies are already emotionally weak and, after realizing the condition of the university, the administration, the poor infrastructure, they find themselves trapped somewhere unworthy. The raggedy adds more misery to everything.

But that's what newbies think. If you see in the other perspective, the motive behind the rags is something else. It allows you to meet, mingle with the people of your place (or area, as we call it here), get to know

As a student at NIT Durgapur, I went through the same circumstances in my first year of university. When leaving home for the first time, newbies are already emotionally weak and, after realizing the condition of the university, the administration, the poor infrastructure, they find themselves trapped somewhere unworthy. The raggedy adds more misery to everything.

But that's what newbies think. If you see in the other perspective, the motive behind the rags is something else. It allows you to meet, mix with the people of your place (or area, as we call it here), learn more about your seniors who help you throughout your Engineering and even after that, from notes, curriculum, projects, academics, internships, and in some cases jobs too, just because you visited their rooms.

I agree It may sound like a typical senior, but trust me, I used to curse them all the time during the raggedy period too, but meeting them eventually paid off for me. After a year they are just friends, brothers in other years. You meet more guys from your own year, your circle grows wider, you get more friends. :)

In fact, no one is obliged to make rags here. Everyone has the option of either getting Zone-In or Zone-Out (Ragging or Don't). And nobody has a problem with exit zones.

You could have stayed out of the zone if you couldn't bear the rags. It seems like a good option to me instead of dropping out of school after spending a full semester in college.

Everyone is treated the same in the Ragging period, be it a boy from a town or subway, financially weak or strong. Shy people become more outspoken and uncivilized and learn manners. Make it blunt, but that's what they probably wouldn't learn in engineering. They are humiliated but that teaches them patience. It makes them mentally strong. It's what they went through makes life's other problems seem like a piece of cake.

If MTV produces only one Rodie, NIT-Dgp produces hundreds of them in a year. :P

Well, since I am a current university student at NIT Durgapur, I think I can answer it.

No, the rag is "practically" absent at NIT Durgapur.

Hope for? Why did I say "practically" absent and not "completely" absent? You will get to know this in a moment.

First of all, as you may know, NIT Durgapur, is an institute of national importance, recognized by the Government of India. As with all NITs, NIT Durgapur also takes rags very seriously. Anti-rag events / campaigns are held throughout the year to raise awareness of rag.

Hope for? Why did I say "practically" absent and not "completely" absent? You will get to know this in a moment.

First of all, as you may know, NIT Durgapur, is an institute of national importance, recognized by the Government of India. As with all NITs, NIT Durgapur also takes rags very seriously. Anti-rag events / campaigns are held throughout the year to raise awareness of rag.

Every year (maybe except the first year), you must complete an Affidavit Against Rag (http://www.amanmovement.org/) to promise that you will not engage in any form of Rag (direct or indirect). The exercise of completing and submitting the affidavit for each student during odd semester registration is mandatory and is strictly followed.

Of course, this is to let you know that our institute does, in fact, take rags very seriously, at least officially. Perhaps I suppose you are more interested in whether the "rag culture" still exists in NIT Durgapur.

Now here comes the "practically absent" part. The “rag culture” in NIT Durgapur is almost non-existent. As a current student of NIT Durgapur, I can assure you with certainty that no one will abuse you, unless you give your “explicit” consent to do so.

Now, as with all institutes, our measures to prevent / stop rag are not completely tested, mainly because students voluntarily participate in rag with the wrong impression that this will help them in personality development (really? ?) Or you will get to know older people. Mainly in NIT Durgapur, you are given a choice: either be "entry zone" or "exit zone", ie support the tattered (and be tattered thereafter) or not admit the tattered. Now this is very important. No matter what you choose, it is your decision and no one but you is responsible for it. And in any case, if it is ragged without your consent and / or mistreated, you can always report it to the authority (please do not hesitate or be afraid to report it).

I highly recommend that you do not participate in the rag with the false impression that it will help in your personality development (I did not know that being bullied or undergoing mental / physical torture or doing useless tasks for the most part is part of personality development). ) or networking with older people or other nonsense that they sell you. Most of the time, they (those who make rags) are not worth knowing.

Bottom Line: If you don't want to be raggedy intentionally, you won't be!

Best of luck!
