NIT Goa - Ranking, Placements | askIITians

The National Institute of Technology, Goa is one of the ten institutions granted NIT status in 2010.  Like the rest of the NITs, it has been granted the status of an Institution of National importance.  The first batch of students was admitted in 2010-11, which means that the first batch of engineers will pass out in 2014-15.

The NIT Goa campus is located at Farmagudi, Ponda, and is a temporary campus.  At present, NIT Goa functions out of the Goa Engineering College (GEC) campus.  Space for a permanent campus, spanning 300 acres from Concullum to Balli, has been allocated, but is not yet functional; hence the NIT Goa address will continue to be the same as the GEC till further notice.  There has been quite a bit of controversy regarding land allocation, because the Government of Goa was adamant about releasing land only if 50% reservation is provided to Goan students.  The request was granted by the Government of India with effect from the academic batch 2012-13.  This makes it tougher for other state students to get admission to NIT Goa, because competition becomes tougher.

At the B.Tech. level, The Goa NIT has only three Engineering branches: Computer Science and Engineering with 123 seats, Electronics and Communication Engineering with 135 seats and Electrical and Electronics Engineering with 120 seats.  As mentioned earlier, 50% of these seats are reserved for Goan students.  This reservation quota does not include students from Diu, Daman, Lakshwadeep or the surrounding areas.

NIT Goa placements are fairly good, with companies such as Siemens, D-Link, L&T, BHEL, NTPC, Johnson Controls, Bosch and Phillips visiting the campus.  These companies have been visiting the campus for MTech and other courses offered at NIT Goa campus, as the first BTech batch will graduate in 2014-15.  Hence, it is also too early to credibly comment about NIT Goa recruitments.

The NIT Goa review will be incomplete without covering the campus.  The NIT Goa campus is well-equipped, with classrooms, auditorium well-equipped labs, a 1GB leased line fibre-optic cable, and other state-of-the-art equipment.  The NIT Goa hostel has three hostels for boys and one for girls.  Campus life is active, with a number of societies such as TESLA (The Electrical Engineer’s association), INVICTUS (the sports meet), cultural events, jam sessions, and so on.

It is too early to comment about NIT Goa ranking, because the first BTech batch is still to pass out. However, NIT Goa Cutoffs in 2013 as compared to other NITs can give an indication of the all-India positioning.  If we consider the rankings of other NITs in 2013 in the ‘General Other State’ category for the three streams offered at NIT Goa, we get the following result.






Computer Science

18 – 450

1 – 318

2623 – 12945

3529- 6828

Electrical Engg

149 – 1251

98 – 925

6882 – 14693

4489 – 8024

Electronics  and Communications Engg

83 – 985

115 – 652

5150 – 13962

5520 – 7467

On doing an analysis of the cutoffs, we find that NIT Goa is doing fairly well, considering that it is a new NIT, and seems to have a promising future.  It has not yet attained the stature of the top NITs, but other NITs are up to 30 years old.  Considering the short time period, NIT Goa is doing very well.
