Careers360: Tell us about the faculty-student ratio here and about the teacher-student relationship in your understanding.

The college follows a proctor system in which a group of students are assigned to a faculty. The faculty becomes in campus guardian. He/She will take care of you any time you need. PS: If you call your proctor or any other staff after midnight also, they will respond.
Careers360: What all facilities do you have in the Campus Life at GIET University? What do you like here the most which you feel is unique and differentiating?
Aditya Barun: I like the way they treat you when you are on campus. The food is excellent, excellent medical services, excellent recreation facilities, and one huge library with access to all kinds of books along with the digital library. The thing that makes GIET unique is the administration and the i2i cell. The i2i cell will make sure that you have proper training before you join any kind of industry.

Careers360: Tell us about the clubs and societies at the campus and how significant are they from your point of view or students point of view?
Aditya Barun: Well in general students don't prefer any kind of clubs or societies. But they don't understand their importance. If you are part of any club or society it will enhance your managing skills/speaking skills/leadership skills etc. I don't know about marks but the above skills are a must in today's corporate world.

One of the worst college in BPUT (Now deemed university) . They will take students taken for granted . they will show the placement record but facts figures are far away from them . Apart from TCS and some software companies; no one will get joining letter . All the core campus placement are fake . I am the sufferer of that . i have got placement on SEW Infrastructure limited in 2012 but never got joining letter . its my suggestion to go to Bhubneswar colleges , atleast you will get the exposure for offcampuses , where as in GIET gunupur - you will be slave . I am from 2008-2012 Batch mechanical engineering batch
Hello,If you need a genuine opinion, I would not suggest either of the colleges. You wouldn't be able to get a good placement to start with. There are plenty other colleges in Andhra Pradesh that are amazing. There are JNTUK, AU,SVU, Gayathri vidya parishad vizag, JNTU Ananthapur etc., These are like the best colleges in Andhra Pradesh and they have very high cutoffs.Good Luck!
When you get a seat allotted in the first round of the counseling, there is a deadline given to you before which you have to accept the admission in the college if you want to. If you fail to complete the admission in the given deadline your seat will be left vacant and passed to the next round of the counseling. Now, since you have not paid the fees in the college at the given time so your seat is vacant and you have to get the seat again in the next round.
All The Best.
Hello candidate. Both the colleges are better in their own way. But compared to ISTS womens college, GIET college is good in all the aspects. The college has good infrastructure facilities. The college provides peaceful and pleasant to study. The faulty here are highly qualified and well experienced. The placement cell is good in the college. Top companies visit the campus for recruitment. Better go with GIET for bright future.
