And it has amazing speed, too. But we are still using our trusty dial up. A wifi card is too costly, and we dont know till when the network will be unsecured.

Even after studying here for 7 semesters, I probably am ill qualified to comment on this. Coz there are just too many parameters. But it is possible if we judge on only one parameter, the holy grail, placement scenario.
Here is my ranking. Mind you its just my ranking, but Ill try to give reasons.
ECE had the best placements, both in terms of percentage of people placed, and in quality of placement. Computer Science too has equally good placement and it is probably a chiller branch than ECE, with less workload. But I rate ECE better for two reasons. One, because *I* am in this branch and two because guys with better AIEEE ranks generally choose this. So you will be in better company.
Mechanical is great branch with extremely good infrastructure, but it really looses in the placement wars. People with lower AIEEE ranks choose IT, and had a lower GPA, but still got better jobs. EEE had a poor placement record this year. I would have liked to rate it higher, but the placements do not warrant it. Then all other branches are equally good or bad, and also I do not know enough to make a choice there. Yeah polymer had a 100% placement this year. But it is not guaranteed every year,(polymer had only 6 people).
It seems that everybody got more marks than they expected. I got my all time highest. This time the way marks were arranged on the notice board was really funny. You could call it numeric-alphabetical. It was like 1, 11, 112, 12, 21, 213, 22, 31. Got the idea? Weird? That’s life for us. He he. But it was lots of fun trying to find where your roll number was.
Blog is probably gonna be quieter till the exams end. Not that I am gonna study a lot, I just want to feel like I am trying to study.

So finally its all in the papers. The drugs problem which bit so desperately tried to say does not exist, now every one knows it. But like the deceased parents accused people of murdering him, so the people here had to tell all.
And it was also not exactly drugs. The guy was into thinners and whiteners. You can get that in any stationary shop. It not something anyone can stop. So it was probably stupid of BIT to try to stop the news. And the matter is now quieter, not like two days when every newspaper and news channel had its reporter posted here.
Till now no FIR had been filed against BIT. Hopefully it will not be.
There was a drama competition, the laughter challenge organized by the Dramsoc. As usual humor full of porn, stale jokes. But this time I dint take the risk and dint go.
There is genesis being organized tomorrow. That’s annual competition by the Unesco. Then there is harditude, softitude and one bazillion other events coming up. Heck I hate being in the final year. You can’t participate in an event. And I am not a club president or that good that I judge. So long time I was involved with an event.Oh and as usual I am a day late posting this.

Yeah and BTW, the stupid rules are still here. Be have to sign, get permission for going out, all the works.
Saturday, October 22, 2005
This pressure from the media has put tremendous pressure on the Bit management and so they have to do something. So in their infinite wisdom they have made more rules. Draconian and 100% non enforceable rules. Like noone can go outside the college campus without permission. That there will be a roll call for every one in the evening. Rules which can in no way hamper the sale or procurement of drugs, but rules which will just cause discomfort to the average guy. In short, just the rules you will expect BIT to form.

Bit has extension centres at various places. The first extension centre was opened at Lalpur, Ranchi in 1984. At present there are six extension centres at Lalpur, Allahabad, Kolkata, Noida, Jaipur and Chennai.
Courses offered there include MCA, BCA, MBA and some others. Neither BE nor ME is offrered at any extension cente.
Though the course there be not at par with the Main Campus ( I am not saying they are bad), the students from there get degrees from Bit Mesra and it is equal to a degree from main campus. The students may switch from one campus to other by permission from the VC.
Apart from these BIT has overseas centres at Bahrain, Muscut and UAE
The placements last year too were prettty good. Almost everyone got placed. The average salry must have been in the range of 2.5 lacs pa cost to company.
