  • Is honours degree awarded to everyone or is there a CGPA criterion or is any specialisation required in any subject to attaining it?


    • DEAN(ACADEMICS): PROF. K.K. MOHAPATRA

      Honours degree is awarded to any student scoring a CGPA of 8.0 or above. This is applicable for students from all branches and no other criteria need to be fulfilled.


  • A student got 5.23 CGPA in the first year. He had a query that would he be passed on to the next academic year?


    • RESPONSE FROM DEAN(ACADEMICS): PROF. K.K. MOHAPATRA

      No, the student has to repeat the first year if he/she gets a CGPA of less than 5.5. However, if the student is repeating the first year and again fails to maintain this minimum CGPA, he/she will be expelled from the institute.


  • Is it possible for a student to change his/her branch from Integrated MSc to four years B.Tech in any branch for the year 2018-19?


    • DEAN(ACADEMICS): PROF. K.K. MOHAPATRA

      The branch change decision was taken by the Senate and it was decided that only B.Tech students can undergo a branch change. However, if the need arises then further steps can be taken in future.

      KHIROD KUMAR NAYAK       CG: 9.43 From CH to EE

      GUPTA MAHESH SUBHASH   CG: 9.27 From MM to EE

      There hasn’t been any branch change to CSE or Civil.


  • Why have the placement databases for 2016-17 and 2017-18 not been updated on the official website of NITR?


    • HEAD OF TRAINING AND PLACEMENT CENTRE: PROF. S. K. PATEL

      The prime reason for not having it in the website is that the placement statistics in the official NITR website is accessed mainly by the freshmen and the sophomores. I don’t think it’s a necessity for them since are in the nascent stage of their engineering careers. While they can have the know-how of the companies that have visited our institute, the exact statistics of the number of recruitments, the dates of a company’s visit and the CTC of placements need not be publicized. Should they have any queries about placements, the placement coordinators may be contacted. Also, the third year and final year students are personally tutored about the placement scenario and how their approach and preparations should be. By publishing these statistics, we cannot afford to compromise on the company’s security.


  • Can a student appear in more than 6 papers for the minor degree, if he/she wants to do so?


    • RESPONSE FROM DEAN(ACADEMICS): PROF. K.K. MOHAPATRA

      Minor degree will be awarded to a student if he/she completes 6 courses and two additional labs and there is no provision of opting for additional courses as of now.


  • Many subsections in the official NITR website are either not updated or are defunct. For instance, the link to the Anti Ragging cell is broken. What can be done about it?


    • HEAD OF COMPUTER CENTRE: PROF C. K BISWAS

      Whenever any student comes across such an issue, he/she can write a detailed email, along with the screenshot of the issue to the Head of Automation Centre, Prof Pankaj Kumar Sa.


  • A final year student completed B Tech from Chennai and is looking forward to M.Tech at NITR (Food Processing). As per FAQ of our institute, seats vacant after allotment to GATE qualifiers are given to non-GATE people, how to know about admission process?


    • RESPONSE FROM DEAN(ACADEMICS): PROF. K.K. MOHAPATRA

      The spot round for admission got conducted recently for both GATE and non-GATE qualifiers. We usually don't want non-GATE candidates because they have to bear all the expenses out of their own pocket, that is, there is no provision for any sort of grants. Nevertheless, the spot round is open for all candidates and it the admission period is over. The necessary details regarding M.Tech admissions were available on the website.


  • When will the placement live section of MM be updated?


    • TEAM MM

      As mentioned previously, Team MM is trying to bring substantial changes to the website. In addition, the Live section is updated in accordance with the convenience of the Training and Placement Centre to ensure smooth placements for the students. The placement database for the students of NITR only will be updated once the above issues are considered and resolved.


  • Now that the warden of MSS has changed to Manish Okade, can Team MM make a request to him to keep the rear gate open and state the inconvenience caused at the present.


    • TEAM MM

      Team MM will definitely look into the matter and gauge the inconvenience caused to the boarders. Once we are fully aware of the crux of the matter, the matter will be taken up with Prof. Manish Okade.
