VIT Final Phase Counselling

I received a SMS today about the final phase of VIT counseling.There are still a few seats remaining and candidates with AIR under 11,000 have been called for counselling.This phase of counseling is remote counseling and candidates have to Fax their forms and a copy of a DD of Rs10,000 to VIT.Click on the link at the bottom of this post for full details.

Seat Availiability

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING-21

CIVIL ENGINEERING-21

ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING-46

ELECTRONICS AND INSTRUMENTATION ENGINEERING-34

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY-57

MECHANICAL AND ENERGY ENGINEERING-27

I won’t be applying for admission as I feel that NIT Bhopal is a much better option than VIT.I’m not too keen to go to a college in South India either.They’ve been lots of debates on VIT on my blog,you’re welcome to start another one.The comments are an eyeopener for me.

AIEEE Counselling Ends

The 10 day long AIEEE counseling has finally ended.There are still a few seats in a few private colleges under Open category.This is good news for people waiting for allotment under Form 2 or the second phase of counseling.There will obviously be some dropout seats so don’t loose hope if you haven’t been allotted any institute through form 1.

Those who made it through Form 1,don’t forget that you need to report to the allotted institute and get enrolled before 20th July 2008.As expected,Lovely Professional University still has 500+ seats available and half of them are under good branches.With a name like Lovely Professional University,not too many people will be tempted to join.I guess people feel that Amity university is better known and is better that low ranked private universities.

MANIT Bhopal

As I mentioned before,I was allotted Energy Engineering at Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology(MANIT),Bhopal.So I decided to go there to complete the admission formalities and ensure myself a hostel room.The campus is huge just like every engineering college.I reached there with all documents and drafts ready.The admission process took just 2 hours which included a long walk to and from the Dispensary for a medical examination and filling up of long forms.

About the course-Energy Engineering is a multi-discipline course that was started a year ago in MANIT.Other institutions that offer Energy Engineering are IIT Bombay and IIT Kharagpur. Generally, the IITans find themselves at NASA after Energy Engineering.The faculty is good as courses of many branches are a part of the curriculum.Overall,its a branch for tomorrow.I will be graduating after 4 years and by that time Energy will be a stream in demand.

I’m 99% sure that I’ll be joining MANIT.I’ll be sure after DCE counseling(if any) on 24th July.
