Speaking on the development, Arpit Agarwal, Principal, Blume Ventures said, “I've been in touch with NIT Trichy E-Cell for three years. I've seen that through successive batches they have worked very hard to bring together a set of high quality startups to the platform.

which is best for CSE 1. NIT TRICHY 2. BITS PILANI and why

Nikhitha Sai 27th Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant, both of the colleges cannot be compared

Because, each if the college is best in it's own way p. Especially when the branch of computer science is taken.

Both of them are equally best in terms of education, placements course curriculum etc so on and so forth.

But the change is in life style. If you wish to experience a luxurious engineering life style, then go for bits pilani.

Else, a normal life style like other colleges, nit trichy will go the best

But in terms of educational aspects, they cannot be compared at all. It would be your choice
