The new hostels have been built and they have good facilities as well. The rooms are spacious as well as living in a hostel will surely give you some friends of a lifetime. The experience and bonding which comes while staying together are much better than the academia itself.

Interaction with seniors-This is the most valuable part. You get to know more about the college related and academic stuff from them. They also become very good friends. You have the liberty to contact any senior at any time. Seniors have the ingrained quality that they will never refuse to help any junior.
Co-curricular activities: College has it’s own cultural(team sanskriti), technical (team technocracy)and sport fests (organised by team shaurya)n which a lot of activities happens. Apart from this there are lot of committees which you could join.
All the faculty members are well qualified and knowledgeable, but to be honest some professors do not teach in the way it should be. Many student might feel this because most of them have done their coaching from Private coaching institutes where faculty members teach in the best way possible. But overall the faculty members are very helpful here at NIT Raipur. Courses are designed and adapted in a nice way, right from the basic level to the advanced level.
Faculty here are highly interested in research and encourage students for the same. Teaching method is traditional Board-Chalk method but teaching through slides is also used. Faculty student ratio 1:20 which is expected to get better after recruitment. Students are well trained to get training or project in industries and everyone gets a chance to work with BSP at least once.
The course curriculum was recently updated according to industrial demand, also course is well suited for GATE and selection ration is too good from the college (around 15 students on top 100). Teachers are very helpful if you want to conduct research on any topic. The curriculum is something where every student is satisfied and happy. All in all, you can get the best out of the college if you want. This college lacks nothing, but if you are not willing to groom yourself, nothing can be done.
The cut-off of JEE Main for NIT Raipur varies from category and state quota. Placement for IT and CSE is 100% from the last 2 years and some students also had more than 1 job offers (Dream Jobs) with them. The average package is rising every year, with more(quantity) and better(quality) companies coming for campus hiring every year.
Internship opportunities for pre-final year students are also increasing rapidly every year. We also have a very good record of foreign internships among NITs, a few years ago students got to intern in Germany, USA, Australia and Singapore.
