The Abode of NIT Rourkela
Rourkela- Where it all begins!
Unlike Pallet town, Rourkela, often known as Ispat Nagar or the Steel City is an industrial city in the north-western part of Odisha. This Pokécity and its trainers bask in the blistering yet idyllic summers, reaching the maximum temperature of 49°C as well relish the cosy freezing winters that come down till 4°C. It is well-connected by railways, thanks to the Howrah-Mumbai line passing through it. The 'Smart City' is the 3rd largest city in Odisha and boasts of being at the confluence of Koel and Sankha rivers which snake their way through the city to join the mighty Brahmani river. The planned city, which was established way back in 1954, consists of 18 sectors and a few more neighbourhoods connected by the 16-kilometre long Ring Road which runs around the whole city.
National Institute of Technology Rourkela or NIT Rourkela in short, is located in Sector-1 of Rourkela. Nestled in the south-eastern corner of the city, it is flanked by hills on the southern side. The 1024- acre campus houses the hostels, restaurants, faculty residences and sports facilities with the academic area in the middle of the campus. The institute has 3 gates namely the Main Gate (West side), the CWS gate (North side) and the Kantajhar or East Gate. Sector-2, Ispat Market, Ambagan and the Kachery Road serve as the prime shopping areas for all kinds of needs. So trainers buckle yourselves up to explore the Pokécity and find as many Pokémons and badges as possible.
Manoeuvring Through Battlefields-Locating NIT Rourkela
To reach Pallet Town, a trainer has many ways. And Rourkela is not an exception. Rourkela is well connected to the world by all the three means - railways, roadways and airways. An AC bus leaves every night from the campus for Bhubaneswar and vice-versa. With a minimal fair of 425/-, the seats can be booked both online and offline. The nearest bus stop is in Sector-2, just a kilometre away from the campus. Convenient intercity and interstate buses run from there to other different cities as well. The railway station is situated 6 km away from the campus, and the autorickshaw fare is a minimum of 120/-. There are also OLA cabs and other rental cabs running through the city for travel convenience. The nearest airports are Jharsuguda, Ranchi, Raipur, and Kolkata (in the increasing order of distance). The newly constructed Jharsuguda airport connects to Kolkata, New Delhi, and Hyderabad and is just two hours away from Rourkela.
The home to trainers as long as they stay in the campus are the Halls of Residence, but before being allotted a hall, you can stay in hotels, inns, and lodges which are available almost everywhere in the city. There is also a Guest House in the campus which requires prior booking and can be booked from the NIT Rourkela site. Staying in the campus guest house provides you easier commute and accessibility to the institute.
Handy Utilities and Pokéstops
All our newly transformed Pokémon trainers need some basic supplies to tackle problems and NIT Rourkela does an excellent job catering to the needs of our Pokémon trainers. There are numerous on-campus stores stacked with a wide array of quality products. A complex named ‘Needs' located in the proximity of K.M.S Hall of Residence offers grocery, stationary, vegetables along with salon services. Another notable store titled ‘Rangoli' is located amid Scholar's Avenue in front of the GDB Hall of Residence. Apart from these stores, J.D. Enterprises and Trainer bookstore, positioned in the academic region supplies for the educational support to power pack the Pokémons in their quest of survival. Sector 2 Marketplace, VIP marketplace, Ispat market are some of the local bazaars displaying the authenticity of Rourkela. Apart from local shopping areas, there is a humongous hub of supermarkets, branded showrooms of jewellery, fabrics, and handicrafts.
A healthy mind stays in a healthy body, and though multifarious and nutritious, the mess food might sometimes become tedious. To all the foodies out there, NIT Rourkela offers us with the many food joints like Joz Kitchen and Hexagon in the Scholars Avenue, Moksha and Dosa Plaza in Technology Avenue, Rengcol and Srinivas lunch Room in the academic block. They accept cashless payments and have a trainer-friendly timetable. Ash along with Misty and Brock come to the Nescafe, Amul Parlour, and the Departmental store near the main gate for the perfect hangouts and refreshments after long hours of study.
NIT Rourkela provides a mesmerising abode to thousands of trainers incoming every year. A walk through the lush green pathway brings the souls to a state of tranquillity. Using a cycle, the campus could be explored by the Pokémons. NIT Rourkela aims at maintaining a healthy lifestyle for its trainers. Thus, the Dilip Tirkey Stadium (DTS) and Sachin Tendulkar Sports Complex (STSC) provide exemplary areas for recreation in the territories of sports and athletics.
NIT Rourkela wants to establish a regiment of mentally as well as physically fit Pokémons. To accomplish that, extra-academic activities such as NSS, NCC and Physical Education are introduced in the curriculum of trainers.
The campus is well equipped with the banking facilities, having one SBI ATMs in front of GDB hall, one SBI ATM near KMS and an Axis bank ATM in the academic area near the Banyan tree. The campus also has three temples inside it. Hold down your Pokéballs and carry them for the journey.
As a rookie Pokemon trainer, you should always be ready to learn new skills and fight in practice battles. Here are a few tutors of equipment you should possess to lead your training period smooth and hassle-free.
● A bicycle to move around on the campus.
● An emergency light so that you don’t blame power cuts for bad grades.
● Personal Utilities:- You will need a personal mattress and pillow set for your room and also a bathroom set including a bucket and mug
● An umbrella and a raincoat as the weather of Rourkela are quite uncertain.
● Scientific Calculator
● Notebook and geometry box
● Lab coat:- Some of the laboratories and workshops require the students to wear a lab coat or apron for their safety.
Stationery for B.Arch students:-
Apart from the things mentioned above, you will need:-
● Architect’s Scale:- As the name suggests, yours has to be different from others.
● Drawing storage tube:- You can carry your drawing plans in this tube.

These are the things which you will require day in and day out. Other than these, you should carry a pouch of medicines for common illnesses. You can also bring some packet food like chips or biscuits to satisfy your appetite in an odd time of the day (though the night canteens are plenty to cater to your late appetite).
Reconnoitring the Halls of Residence
Attention Pokémon trainers! We can’t just let you sleep in sleeping bags and cook food for yourselves. Being the second largest engineering institute in India, NIT Rourkela boasts of encompassing 11 Halls of Residence spread across the campus, 7 for boys (GDB, MV, MSS, DBA, VS, SD, and HB), 2 for girls (KMS and CVR) and 2 for married scholars (SSB and VK). You will be exclusively allocated among GDB, MV (for boys) and KMS (for girls) for your first year. The Halls of Residence are administered by the Hall Executive Council (HEC) comprising of a hierarchy of trainer representatives in the form of secretaries and professors with the role of Warden and Assistant Warden. The Hall Management Council (HMC) is the umbrella organization headed by the Chief Warden that every HEC is answerable to.
Every hall is divided into numerous blocks constituting of spacious,well-ventilated rooms, properly furnished with modern furniture including bed frames, study tables, chairs, cupboards, tube lights, and ceiling fans. In order to enhance the trainer’s exploration capabilities, LAN ports are also installed in every room. There are sufficient washrooms and toilets in each block installed with geysers and exhaust fans whose cleanliness and sanitation are ensured with utmost priority on a daily basis. Every hall of residence harbours a well-ventilated, state-of-the-art mess which serves four healthy and savoury meals a day: breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner whose menu is updated every semester according to the desires of its trainers. Day & night canteens play an integral role for a trainer. These are the places where the trainers gather for a rendezvous and enjoy lip-smacking refreshments and satiate their untimely cravings, i.e. fighting the gym battles. Appraising the gravity of the situation a steady supply of electricity is ensured and water coolers attached to Aqua-guards(purifiers) are also placed in every block and corridor owing to the provision of clean and cold water.
The Halls of Residence also facilitate common rooms, readings rooms, reasonably attractive gymnasium, games room and TV room as a source of entertainment to eliminate the monotony among the trainers. To encourage them to come out with their remarkable talents, the HMC and HEC also give opportunities to the enthusiasts by organising several inter/intra hall tournaments and competitions that include badminton, cricket, debate, essay writing, etc. Hall days and Garden fests are also organized with provision for flavoursome dishes, disc-jockeys, etc. Many great cultural functions and festivals are also celebrated within the hall premises with great spirit and avidity. Hence at NIT Rourkela, we leave no Pokémon trainer unprepared for gym battles, we provide them with enough facilities and help them to be entirely prepared for their future battles.
Gotta train them all!
Enough of the other stuff trainers! Now comes the part which you all need to pay heed to in depth. If you all wish to bring out the dormant Ash Ketchum inside you, training oneself in different subjects is inevitable. Nothing to be aggrieved for as we are here to further your aspirations by helping you bag your credits.
After toiling hard and fighting out all the odds, when you end up here at NIT Rourkela, you aim to strive for academic excellence. The coherent academic structure of NIT Rourkela provides you with an edge over others in terms of knowledge and the technical acumen. The academic curriculum in the first year for all branches and disciplines remain the same, mainly comprising theory courses along with some lab sessions and each with a certain number of credits. The theory courses will mostly be lecture sessions with tutorial classes (for some specific subjects). There are two examinations in each semester, one is the mid-semester (30%), and the other is the end semester (50%) analogous to the Indigo league, held within a gap of two months, with 20% weightage to teacher’s assessment (TA). The timetable for the classes is quite flexible, classes run from 8 am – 5:15 pm, with a lunch break from (12 noon to 1:15 pm)."All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”- taking into account the gravity of this thing the academic calendar provides the trainers with two long drawn holidays namely winter (4 weeks), summer (11 weeks) post the end semester exams, a week-long of Navaratri holidays after the first mid-semester exams and many other occasional leaves for the trainers to relax and rejuvenate. The academic timetable is available on the institute website and decoding the timetable is a skill an NIT Rourkela trainer must possess.
NIT Rourkela stands atop all other NITs with the largest number of courses offered to specialise in. With a whopping 22 branches of engineering, MSc and Architecture departments, NIT Rourkela boasts off its rich, ingenious prowess. Up for some training already? The monumental Lecture Annexure (LA) is where you begin and burgeon on. All the theory classes, some lab courses, orientations and induction programmes of the various clubs, branch freshers’ will be held there. Being a credible trainer demands you to inculcate the lessons learnt from all sorts of training regimes for which attendance is indispensable (a minimum of 85%). Failing to maintain the numbers can result in grade back or debar from a course. The gigantic Biju Pattnaik Central Library (BPCL) catalyzes the learning process. From attendance to results, hostel management, academic calendars, exam routines and sitting arrangements, minor degree and branch change rules; your one-stop solution for all such queries is the NITRIS. Zimbra webmail is an open source server which circulates all official emails of NIT Rourkela akin to the Pokémails. To ameliorate the process of learning, there is ANKCTEL, our very own e-learning forum. Not to forget sites like NPTEL, Moodle, Coursera, Neso Academy which act as saviour during adverse situations. All of this can be accessed by trainers any time using the Institute LAN equipped in each hostel room.
CGPA and SGPA- A tab on your scores
Semester Grade Point Average or SGPA is your GPA for only one particular semester, and Cumulative Grade Point Average or CGPA is for all the semesters till now. The process to calculate SGPA is quite simple. Each subject in a particular semester has some credits. The total number of credits will be the sum of credits of all the subjects.
SGPA= sum of (grade point * credit of subject) for each subject/(10 * (sum of credits of all subjects))
To calculate your CGPA, divide the sum of all your SGPA by sum of credits of all the semesters.
*Grade points for each grade is given below in the table.
Consulting with teachers for the hardships that trainers face, if any, at any point of time is advisable for the trainers. Furthermore, trainers can reach out to the Student Counselling Program (SCP) team for any help they need. We wish all the freshmen a merry and healthy learning experience.
Minor Degree-Taking on an additional challenge
Well, more Pokemon is always exciting, and so is your training. On completion of 2nd semester, you can opt for a Minor degree, but the catch is, you've got to earn badges to be able to choose one. In other words, you need to fulfil the following conditions:
● The Minor degree will be allocated based on CGPA acquired by the trainer at the end of the first year. The minimum CGPA of 7.50 will be considered eligible for registration for the minor degree.
● A trainer won’t be eligible to opt for a minor degree unless he/she clears the extra-academic courses (PE/NSS) in the first year itself.
● He/she needs to take at least six additional courses offered by the minor branch department constituting of minimum 18 credits between 3rd and 8th semester.
● The branch opted for a minor degree is a one-time choice and cannot be altered under any circumstance.
● Anyone who wishes to leave the Minor degree in between, he/she may be allowed to do so with the permission of Dean (Ac.). His/her grade-sheet will only reflect the cleared courses.
● If a trainer fails to complete a Minor degree course within his/her normal duration, he/she has the option to either drop the minor degree or he/she may stay an extra semester or year as applicable to complete the same for the award of Minor degree.
Branch change policies
Meritorious students who secure a minimum CGPA of 8.5 at the end of the first year may be given an option for branch change subject to availability of vacant seats and subject to the condition that the following vacancy created in the parent department due to branch change should not be more than 5% of the actual strength.
Minimum CGPA requirements- Survival against all odds:
It's not too severe for a pokemon trainer to survive if he/she is dedicated and willing to learn. A minimum CGPA of 6 is mandatory for a student at all times. If his CGPA drops below 6, then the following procedure is followed for taking the necessary action:
● A Modified Grade Point Average will be calculated by replacing all the X and F grades by P grade. If the MGPA exceeds six, then the student may be permitted to register for a full suite of higher semester courses at the discretion of the Faculty Advisor. If it doesn't, he is required to enter the 'slow pace' program.
● If a student's CGPA is less than 6 in 3 consecutive semesters, then he must leave the institute.
● In case of a first-year student, if the CGPA is between 5 and 5.69, he will re-register in the first semester and start the program anew. The CGPA in the repeat year must exceed 6 for the person to stay in the institute.
● If CGPA is less than five, the student must leave the institute.
A student is not permitted to re-register a course when he has scored a P grade or a better grade in it. However, students below 6 CGPA can do so to improve their scores.
A student who has been debarred from an examination and awarded an 'X' grade for any reason may register for the subjects as backlog papers in the following semester.
Those who have been awarded unregistered 'UR' because of poor attendance or any reason need to register for the course and attend the classes as per rules.
Extracurricular Activities- Sharpening your Psyche!
Apart from having a globally recognised academia, NIT Rourkela has ample opportunities for trainers with different passions.

Student Counselling Program-Hustling through the grind
Facing a setback with your Pokémon? Need a Pokémon centre to help you out?
Worry no more! NIT Rourkela has just the solution for you in its Student Counseling Program (abbreviated as SCP). Founded by the present Director, Prof Animesh Biswas, the program plans to ensure that the freshmen have a flawless transition into the new way of life that awaits them at NIT Rourkela. It further aids them in building up a confident attitude towards their present and subsequent problems, so they become Ultimate Pokémon trainers and later Pokémon champions.
It includes eight faculty members with Prof KC Pati as the Professor in Charge and 11 trainer coordinators. Are you wondering how the trainer coordinators are any different from you? Well, they are the experienced Pokémon trainers who have already earned their gym badge and are in their sophomore year or higher up. They assign each trainer coordinator a set of "mentors" within a week of admission who take care of the freshmen or the "mentees".
Experienced mentors interact with the freshmen to provide personal and professional support and help them conquer the initial obstacles. The teams also intend to resolve any ambiguities regarding extra-curricular activities as well as the monetary issues of the pupils. Since all pupils may not be acquainted with the learning pace and sequence, remedial classes are carried out by the SCP to traverse the gap. It also holds bridge courses for overseas trainers to familiarise them with the learning system of the institute.
Homesickness, discomfort, psychological anguish, and peer pressure add to the academic stress that the newbies face in NIT Rourkela. Thus SCP has appointed psychiatrists to confront the menace of mental stress. Professional counsellors are also present on the campus to handle different trainer issues.
With SCP on your side, you have all the support you need to become the Ultimate Pokémon trainer. So what's stopping you now? Run along to catch your next Pokémon.
