NITW Aspirants - FAQs

This is from
http://agpweb.wordpress.com/category/nit-warangal/ by Ajay George Palakuzhy
NIT Warangal for the Aspirant : A collection of valuable information about the prestigious institution National Institute of Technology,Warangal (NIT Warangal)for the future NITians as well as for anyone who would like to know more about this college

Sadly there is no authoratative guide on the net regarding this issue.
So I thought about writing this one…

NIT Warangal has always been on the list of the best technical education institutes
in India.Facilities are at par with the best in the country and the highly experienced faculty adds to the strong academic curriculum.
Admission process for NIT Warangal is through the AIEEE examination and there is state wise quota.
There is a separate admission process for Foreign Students (DASA Scheme).
Popular FAQ:
1. The first question that comes to the mind is where is Warangal?
Ans: Warangal is one of the best cities in Andhra Pradesh,just 2 hours from Hyderabad.Reaching Warangal is just child’s play.Warangal is well connected by both road and rail.
All the trains on the Delhi Route stop by Warangal.Alternatively you can reach ‘Kazipet’ as the college is nearer to it.(But guys from Kerala , remember no direct train stops at Kazipet.Catch the Kerala Exp or an alternate train.)

2. I reached Warangal,where is the college(NIT Warnagal)?
Ans: From the Warangal station it is just half an hour on the Autorickshaw (autos are the popular means of commutation not buses.)It will cost you around 40-50 bucks (depending upon your negotiation skill) and if you are travelling alone you can have a ’share auto’ (autos look the same,but say direct for direct auto) for Rs 8-10.

3.Ok, now I reached the college,where is the counselling centre?
Ans: You will be guided to the centre by the volunteers at the gate,Don’t panic.We will be there to guide you.
The counselling should go fine and you can give your options and see around the college.
The Central Library is sure to stun you (one of the best technical libraries in the country) and the new administrative block is going to be an architectural wonder.(Hope that the construction is complete.)

4. Oh my god this place is infested with naxalites!!!
Never.This has been the question put forward by most of the parents with whom I interacted…
They were a thing of the past,you can safely send your ward over…

5. Which bank operates closest to NITW?State Bank of Hyderabad has a college branch and an ATM. Most of us use the SBH and many have an account also.
Let me share a cool hack.Instead of opening an account you could give your son/daughter the ATM card of the account at home (All State Bank cards are taken,along with some other banks) saving you the trouble of going through the process of actually creating one.
Other than SBH, we have Andhra Bank,ICICI at Hanamkonda (10 minutes from the college by auto).
