Is ECE ( in IIT Kgp) a good branch, to compete with C.Sc branh of NIT s ? Analyse the job opurtunities and higher studies etc.
Hi, according to your question it seems something similar. If I talk about top NIT's like NIT Trichy, MNNIT Allahabad or VNIT Nagpur then the CSE branch of these institutes gives a tough competition to CSE branch students IIT's also. Now coming on the IIT, Kharagpur's EEE branch so let me tell you EEE highest placement package from EEE branch is approx 1 Croreand the average package is approx 5 Lakhs. So overall you just see IIT Kharagpur is an IIT afterall so it will always be better than any of the NIT's in any branch.
If someone accepts NIT s any branch ,is it possible for him to sit in csab counseling
you can definitely sit for CSAB counselling even after you have accepted a seat in NITs. According to the guidelines for CSAB counselling , if you have seat in any of the NITs , while participating in CSAB counselling the seat which you have been allotted will remain safe and if you do get a seat from this round your previous allotted seat will be forfeited.
