  • 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.


  • The freshers were informed that they would be introduced to their respective mentees on the orientation day. Why didn’t that happen?


    • HEAD OF STUDENT COUNSELLING PROGRAM: PROF K. C. PATI

      It wasn't possible on the orientation day as the orientation program is for the whole institute, and not specific to only the 1st years. We are planning on introducing the mentors to their mentees on a separate day, most likely in the upcoming week.


  • What is BB Cinema? How many shows are played per week? How to obtain tickets for it?


    • TEAM MM

      Kindly refer to the article ‘Icing The Weekends: The Bhubaneswar Behera Theatre’ in this issue of Monday Morning for all the details about the venture.


  • Is there any option provided to the freshers to change his/her allotted mentor, if he/she feels uncomfortable with the current one?


    • HEAD OF STUDENT COUNSELLING PROGRAM: PROF K. C. PATI

      We have planned something to solve this. During the allotments, the mentor and the mentees are provided with each others’ contact number. Within a week following that, we will have a session with all the mentors and first-year students. We will have an open discussion on the difficulties faced by the freshers in this regard. Perhaps, we,along with a few faculty members, would visit the hostel too after they get settled in their respective hostels.


  • Is Monday morning ignoring the questions of its readers on purpose? The answers of Ask-A--Question should be updated regularly. It's been a while since the late one.


    • TEAM MM

      Monday Morning understands that the readers eagerly wait for their queries to be answered. In the past, we have been answering the queries through an article. Beginning next week, a newer, more responsive system of Ask a Question will be put in place. Owing to this technical issue, we had been unable to clear many of the queries readers had posted. We assure our readers that we will be back with an improved version and regret the inconvenience caused to them until now.
