NIT ROURKELA METALLURGY OR IIIT SRICITY CSE WHICH IS BEST
If you are not dead interested in CSE, I believe Metallurgical Engineering at NIT Rourkela would be a good choice. Metallurgical Engineering besides Chemical Engineering are two of the most student friendly branches having a structured curriculum.
Effectively the course is such that you get enough time to learn new skills and masters technologies besides keeping up with the curriculum. Secondly NIT Rourkela being one of the older technical institutes has a rich campus life and culture, infrastructure, faculty, research facilities as well as an excellent outlook. Companies like GE Aviation, Tata Steel, Vedanta, Tata Motors, Jindal Stainless, Reliance, Hindalco are regular recruiters from Dept. Of Metallugical Engineering at NIT Rourkela.
NIT ROUKELA being near mineral rich regions of Odisha and Jharkhand further provide impetus in training and placements.However if you are seriously interested in CSE, you can always prefer IIIT Sricity over NIT Rourkela.
