Which college is better interms ofPlacement opportunities (inIncreasingOrder): MANIT for bioinformatics or biotechnology or computational and system biology, NIT Agartala for biotechand biochem. eng., NIT Rourkela for biotechnology, IIESt shibpur for biomed.eng. or IIIT allahbad for bioinformatic?
As per my view if I had to consider placements only then of course mnit bhopal and IIIT allahabad would be at a better place if I had to compare between nit Agartala and iiest shibpur.
Nit Agartala is considered to be a decent college not very good or not bad whereas iiest shibpur placements are not very great in case of biotechnology. The placements are very dull. Almost 30-40% are placed from this branch which is very less.
So, IIIT allahabad average package stands somewhere between 18L for cse and for other branches 8-9L atleast. Same in the case for manit bhopal but average package is a bit lower.
