KNS Institute of Technology (KNSIT), Yelahanka
KNS Institute of Technology (KNSIT) is located about 3 to 4 kms from Yelahanka Railway Station and on the road running parallel to the Bangalore-Hyderabad Highway. The place appears quite deserted yet one or two BMTC buses ply right outside the college with a frequency of about 10-15 minutes. So although it’s far reaching the college isn’t really too tough.
Students claim to be unsatisfied with the college infrastructure. Although there’s nothing lacking in particular everything from labs to classrooms and library are good enough to only just keep them going.
Hostels are slightly are better with few or no complaints. Hostel’s fees come to about Rs. 45-50K per year. Numerous guest houses lined up right outside the college are also preferred by a lot of students.
For Karnataka CET students: Rs. 41,590/- per year
For UGET (COMEDK) students: Rs. 1.4L per year
Additionally Rs. 15,000-odd is charged as miscellaneous fee.
“Teaching is not amazing or anything, but it’s not unacceptable as well” say a group of students from KNS Institute of Technology (KNSIT).
KNS Institute of Technology (KNSIT) recommends a 85% attendance which most students fail to adhere to and are then fined Rs. 200 per subject. The fines sometimes go as high as Rs. 10,000 for those with attendance less than 25-30%. Detentions happen only in extreme cases.
Loads of mischievous chaps! KNSIT is somewhat a favourite of average scorers from North Indian states like Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh and they form almost 30-35% of the crowd. The rest are from Bangalore & other parts of Karnataka. A lot of students here come from rural backgrounds and it’s a bit difficult to mingle with them. Late night alcohol parties are common amongst those staying as PGs.
Wonderful. No issues.
Step outside the gate, look to your left and right, all you see is an endless road with some bushes and dries grass growing over the near-barren land on both sides of the road. But fortunately right in front are a few food stalls and eateries where you can spend a few bunked lectures.
A small festival with a different name each year happens in April. It’s supposedly an intercollege festival, but little participation from other colleges ultimately makes it intra.
This is a BIG downside of KNSIT. Only 25-30% of the students get placed, partly due to the poor academic performance of the students and partly due to inadequate efforts by the college. “If you’re above 60% overall, you have good chances of getting placed here” says a student “but companies offer packages only between Rs. 2-3 lakh per year, which is pretty less compared to many other engineering colleges in Bangalore” she continues. Local companies like SNQ & Syntel are regular recruiters.

KNS Institute of Technology (KNSIT) falls behind because of its average faculty and ill-behaved crowd most of who are least interested in academics. Avoid unless you wish to just freak out for four years with absolutely no focus on studies.
