M.E.S. Pillai’s Institute Of Information Technology (PIIT), New Panvel, Navi Mumbai
Located conveniently close to Panvel Railway Station, Pillai’s Institute of Information Technlogy (PIIT) is a cool 10 minute walk from the tracks. If you wish to save even more time, and spend some more money, you could take a rickshaw which would get you there in not more than a couple of minutes.
One massive plus point about M.E.S. Pillai’s Institute Of Information Technology (PIIT) is its Massive campus, which is surprisingly clean by engineering college standards. The washrooms are NOT cramped and do NOT smell like a fart bomb. All in all, it’s a nice environment to study (or not study) in.
BTech Fee: Rs. 90,000/year
MTech Fee: Rs. 1.1L per year

The faculty at M.E.S. Pillai’s Institute Of Information Technology (PIIT) is really good for a college on the outskirts of the city, with the students and teachers sharing a good rapport. The mechanical department faculty, it seems, is one of the best in (well not technically, but anyway) Mumbai.
Attendance is not really an issue, with 40-50% guaranteeing safety.
The crowd isn’t too bad either- there’s a healthy girl-boy ratio, and the overall feedback is ‘chilled out’. Quite a few students from nearby villages, though. Due to linguistic minority quota, you can expect a lot of Malayalam speaking students.
The canteen at M.E.S. Pillai’s Institute Of Information Technology (PIIT) is of an acceptable standard, with edible and more importantly, affordable, food.
A major issue here is the hangouts, or rather the lack of them. Most people end up driving to Karnala or Lonavala, both of which are half an hour away. Chilling at Kharghar is an option too, but there’s not a hell of a lot to do there either.
PIIT hosts their festivals Impulse and Kryptogram around February or March, with the cultural fest happening intermittently.

Not a bad college at all, if you live close to it. “TP karke B.E. banna hai toh aa jaana” says one of their students.
