While going through random sites for GATE 2015 analysis; I found people asking about getting seats in ISM, Which compelled me to write this in a hope to help them all.
First of of all I am a M.Tech final year Mechanical Engineering student of ISM. Unfortunately unplaced but having a 10 grade point.
If one is having a score more than 500 holds good to get a seat in ism. But if you are looking for a job after M.Tech then ISM will not be a good choice because of the following points
- No company prefer to take M.Tech Students
- Only few students of my branch are placed and that too in IT companies.
- No college / university visited ISM for faculty recruitment (whereas they visit iits).
- Now for job you need to go for Ph.D so at that time IITan will get an extra edge over ISM people
- Lab, internet, library facilities very poor compared to IITs.
- You will get no time for preparing yourself for competitive exams.
- No exposure to industry you gonna get.
- No PSU visiting the campus will allow m.tech students to appear in job interview.
- Last but not the least, you will always have to go through a sense of inferiority and alienation among the B.Techs here.
One thing I must include here, perhaps leaving the job I got from campus recruitment in B.Tech and joining M.Tech was a very bad decision. Because if you join any job after M.Tech you gonna lose your seniority in that company and also promotions.
