32 Student Reviews of GITAM University : Visakhapatnam

  • I’m a final year pass out (ECE 2015 batch) and here is my most honest review:
    1) Its the worst college one can ever imagine. If you join this college it’s gonna loot you. They want money for everything.
    2) Faculties have zero knowledge. Most of them failed in their 12th and 10th standards multiple times and got a job in Gitam by paying money.
    3)Caste system is prevalent here. The Chowdaries have their indecent parties in the college and nobody dares to say anything to them.
    4)Students are treated like 5 year olds. The hostels are like jails. To go out of the campus you’ll need a signature from three different persons and each one of them is dumb and will give you a long nagging argument.
    5)Hostel food is horrible and unhygienic. In 2012, 231 students from the girls hostel were admitted to the hospital at the same time due to severe food poisoning and the hostel authority was never ready to take the responsibility. They gave a dumb excuse that all these girls had food from outside. How can 231 girls have food from outside at the same time and that too when the hostel does not let girls go out at all?
    6) They’ll not give you marks until you lick the asses of the worthless faculties who have loads of shit in their heads and a lot of pointless ego. They’ll threat you in public to fail you and you have no other option but grovel.
    7)You have no right to report a complaint against any faculty. If you do so, no body will care and they will instead blacklist you and make your 4 years’ course an 8 years’ one.
    8) Faculties give you marks by seeing your faces. And they’ll give you zero if you ever oppose. Once one of my correct answers in a class test was marked wrong and when I went to explain the faculty that I was right, he tore my paper in front of the whole class and gave me a zero. Such is the attitude towards students. I’m filled with so much wrath that right now I wanna slap his fat ugly face.
    9) They’ll not let boys and girls sit together in the name of discipline and culture.
    10)If you’re a girl you can’t even wear leggings or jeans in the campus.(Reason they’ll give: Such kind of clothing shows the shape of your legs and boys may get seduced)
    11)If you live in the girls hostel and go to the college hospital because just because you missed your menstrual period for some reason, the hostel authority will call your parents the next day and inform them that you’re pregnant! They won’t even talk to you once before giving such false information to your parents. This is just an example that portrays the mentality of the girls hostel warden. (It happened with my roommate).
    12) The college does not fund students’ projects and in case you happen to do something on your own, the college will take the credit in spite of contributing nothing.
    13)The college has increased its rating only by finding loopholes in the rating systems of NAAC and UGC.
    14) Attendance is most important here. Coz they need to make their classes look full(just for show-off you know). If you have low attendance and a 9 point CGPA and some other guy has 100 % attendance and 8 backlogs, he will be favored over you. This college can make you go to depression for no reason.
    15)Going to college is just waste of time.
    16) Talking about placements, TCS is the only mass recruiter here. Some similar mediocre companies do visit the campus. All these companies offer not more than 3lpa. Other companies like Amazon, Microsoft(as they claim) come once in a blue moon and recruit maximum 2-3 students. And placements are good only if you want to join the IT industry. So in these companies only students from CSE and IT are preferred.
    17) The college does not declare holidays on North India festivals like Holi or Diwali. But they’ll definitely give you a holiday on Ugadi(Telugu New Year).
    18) North Indians are looked down upon from the very beginning. Most of the time the faculties will talk in Telugu as they usually can’t speak English and those who do not understand Telugu will have even tougher time.
    19) Don’t trust those who are posting positive reviews here. Those are fake and might be coming from the someone from the college authority itself. If you do not trust me go to the campus yourself and ask a student of Gitam to provide a review about the college. None will give you a good review. Its not possible.

  • the place where you can maje friends for life and learn values for eternity, i can for sure say that its best among the private colleges of AP, the university administration might be a lill stingy but, hey which univ that too a deemed univ has associations and organizations ranging from scientific, technological to social? It has student lead organization like rotatatct and vivan and technical associations like iete, iste, ie , ieee, and hubs like gusac and Microsoft’s student hub, and which university has student owned startups right from the college years? Like dirt9, crazyheads
    Well, it’s all in the hands of the student to take up an activity, no MNC wants a lethergic and inexperianced person, a fresher from gitam is expected to have atleast leadership skills along with technical knowledge, if one compares a students who attends college everyday but does nothing to a person who has been actively participating in events and organizations, there would be tremendous difference in confidence levels and presentation abilities. Stop expecting to be spoon fed, i come from a very small town in rayalaseems, studied in schools with false roofing and no proper teachers. No one ever taught me proper english, i learnt cause i wanted to, how? Through reading books, cutivate a habit that makes you a better person than you were before.college is where you experiment with yourself, school is where you are taught experimenting, stop expecting murthy or prasad rao or v.p to teach you how to read and write. And the one with ac review. Rushikonda beach is just a km away from gate, you can expect the humidity levels to be extremely high, a proper electrical and mechanical engineer knows how tough it is for AC s to work under high humidity in summers!!
    Over that gitam shuts down in april and opens in june( july for freshers) the issue of acs is never heard from my batch mates. The labs of research oriented branches like biotech and biochem are upto date and has the best faculty in ap! Research for NABARD projects goes round the clock.my best days were at gitam

  • Hi,

    GITAM is the worst college. Only thing that matters to the management there is MONEY. The HODs suck in that college. Never join ECE there. The top management for that department do not even know proper english, his only concern is money. The way he behaves with the faculty is disgusting and half of the amount for any event goes into his pocket. There are a lot of politics in that college. The grades in studies do not reflect your merit there, rather the favoritism the faculty there has for you. I would never recommend this college. If you want to enjoy life, yes you can join,….. else never even think of this college.

My uncle works at NAAC , and he has personally reviewed the college..and it is by far the best of the 40 colleges or so { in the whole country}!!!
    98% Placements dont come out of bribes … they come out of reputation and GITAM has that.moreover it has a beach, { lol} , great clubs and was actively involved in all the educational and cultural activities.{ including a flash mob.. check out youtube }.. so its a 3/5 for it , which is not bad.. so its a good place to learn people!!!contact: 9490798186, for talking to my uncle!!

  • Hi i did my M.Tech from Gitam College. To be frank the University is just average. The standard of the University is slowly decreasing. Many of the faculties are not having industrial experience, they have only bookish knowledge. More over there is no difference in the syllabus of M.Tech & B.Tech and i some times feel that i was studying B.Tech again. The faculty will harass you very much. Moreover the fees structure is very high and increasing every year and the standard and reputation of the college is decreasing every year. The faculties are so dumb that they don’t even know the differences of the branches which are there in their concerned department also.

    No matter what, the B.Tech or M.Tech in my opinion it is not advisable to opt for this university.
