Reva Institute of Technology & Management (RITM), Yelahanka
Reva Institute of Technology & Management (RITM) is located about 3kms off the Bangalore International Airport Road (Bangalore-Hyderabad Highway) not far from the Yelahanka Air Force Base making it one of the farthest and most inaccessible Engineering Colleges in Bangalore. The only practical ways to reach the college are (a) College Bus (More than 60% prefer this) and (b) Private Vehicle. The third option, which is a little impractical, is by BMTC buses (for which you need to walk at least a thousand metres followed by a long tiring wait for the bus).
‘Yeh toh 5-star resort jaisa hai’ is the first thought that is bound to come to your mind when you glance at the majestic looking building, one amongst many others in the enormous campus. Completely furnished classrooms, well-functioning labs and a 4-storey Central Library (which is open till midnight) create a hassle-free environment for academics.
The hostels are equally good; triple sharing rooms with attached bathrooms should cost you about 50 grand a year.
For Karnataka CET students: Rs. 36,090/- per year
For UGET (COMEDK) students: Rs. 1.25L per year
Another factor where Reva Institute of Technology & Management (RITM) wins over many other Engineering Colleges in Bangalore. It’s got an excellent fleet of faculty with almost three quarters of the subjects taken by senior and experienced teachers. A few exceptions remain, but they can be overlooked. CS department is said to be the best amongst all with Mechanical and ECE following up close. Students from EEE claim that their department isn’t as good.
Reva Institute of Technology & Management (RITM) recommends a 75% attendance but is pretty considerate when it’s time to take action against the defaulters. Only those with attendance 30% or below and having poor academic records are detained. The rest are let go with some formalities, a little scolding and a 500-rupee fine.
A cent percent academic environment leaves little room for other interests to flourish fragrantly. Expect to meet a lot of geeks and nerds here, who’d always be running around for more marks in their first three years of engineering and for want of a better job in the final year. Those who completely hate the above category form a small minority and indifferently keep exploring their own ideas.
Students from Bangalore form about half of the lot, with the other half being dominated by those from the rest of Karnataka. The remaining come from different parts of the country.
There’s one canteen and a small juice centre inside the Reva Group of Educational Institutions campus. Both serve decent varieties of food at reasonable rates.
Sport-lovers play in the ground provided by the college; others simply linger around in the campus or head straight home. Abundance of barren land and a lack of appropriate places around the college are the reason for their plight.
“REVAMP” is the annual inter-college techno-cultural festival of Reva Institute of Technology & Management (RITM) celebrated sometime in April. It’s said to be pretty big and the students enjoy this period a lot. Few other department-level fests are also organized.
The college claims a near 100% placement record for those eligible (i.e., those satisfying the requirements of companies) which translates into 60-70% overall recruitments. Companies that students get placed into are the usual IT companies like Wipro, TCS, HCL, Tech-Mahindra, L&T Infotech offering packages in the range of Rs. 3.5-4.5 lakhs per annum.
