College Life in WIT Solapur | Life in WIT Solapur

Hi Folks,
I really do not know from where to start?
Okay let me first introduce me, at least you people must know who is sharing his experience (bad :( / good :) ) with Walchand Institute of Technology, Solapur (WIT Solapur).
Well the blog itself says my name is Atishay Jain, I have passed out from WIT in 2010 and have completed my engineering in 4 years with IT Stream. I guess this is much about me.

Let’s start with a small brief about the college and the university.
Walchand Institute of Technology established in 1983, is named after Walchand Hirachand one of India's pioneers of industrial development. WIT has been affiliated to Solapur University, Solapur but previously followed by Shivaji University by 2002-2003. WIT Solapur is also approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi (AICTE New Delhi).

Life in WIT Solapur

My First Day Experience
It was my first day when I have entered on to the college campus of WIT, it was July 2006. The day quite awful to see the old buildings, old hostels, old type if infrastructure and all. Actually the college had two separate places for department but now it has all at one common place that is famous as New Building. The college has two building one is called as old building i.e. Old Walchand College and the other one is called as New Main Building. Luckily it was around 2004 when they have constructed their new building at Ashok Chowk. Followed by this they have got one another new separate building for Mechanical and Civil dept. It was up in 2008-2009. It was
the same year when WIT Solapur has celebrated its 25th year of Excellence i.e. Silver Jubilee.

Jain Quota & Admissions

Well the admission procedure was quite simple before 2007, Luckily I have got the admission without any hard requirements and marks. It was the time when WIT, Solapur had not such hard criteria and competitions.  Our batch mates were all in through the MHT CET marks and also from PCM marks with Jain Quota. Yeah this one of the very important things about the college is that it has a 50% of reserved seats for those who belong to Jain community. At that time it was considered one of the good colleges who were offering such a quota for Jain students.  Still they are considering the same quota but the admission procedure becomes quite hard, as they have developed their name a little in the last few years. At least in Solapur or nearby places like Satara, Baramati, Pandharpur, etc this college is considered to be the best colleges among others.

About Personal Life in WIT Solapur

Beside your studies and your regular exams it is also necessary to live in a healthy and liking environment. Well this is a fact that WIT Solapur has maximum number of students who belongs to outside of Maharashtra & the main reason for this is the “Quota”. Mostly the guys come from UP, Delhi, MP, Gujarat, Rajasthan etc. These people are called as OMS or OSJ that are stands for Other Maharashtrian Students and Other States Jain respectively. At other side the guys who belongs to the same state i.e. Maharashtra are called as MS (Maharashtrian Students). Well the college has never differentiated these as 2 separate parts. But it may be seen among students and at hostel life. It is due to the different food style, different climate, local language, different standard of living etc. But there is no personal dispute in the campus related

Some Facts about WIT Solapur

  • There is no other branch of WIT other then this in Solapur.
  • Walchand College of Engineering, Sangli has no affiliation with WIT, Solapur.
  • This College is a private institute but is also approved by AICTE New Delhi.
  • The College has its own hostel facility for Boys as well for girls. (Walking distance away from college)

Internet Facility in WIT Solapur

WIT Solapur also provides internet facility around the campus including hostel as well in to the college. The internet wifi has been started later in 2009. The speed is also good but sometimes creates problems in connectivity and network. Well it is also not free to use to take the advantage for this facility you will have to pay 800 rupees for security and some small amount per year. But it would be refunded when you will get passed out from the college.

Exams & Results in WIT Solapur

As we are taking about some college we must not forget about education and the results. Very well say if I compared the education system to the north then it would be a little complicated for me, complicated in terms of conventions and the system. Really saying it is quite hard to pass out in 4 years for an average or a bit low student in studies. Do not ever compare the marks or your percentage in between Solapur & any North University (e.g. U.P.T.U). Here if you get above 60 % then you might feel lucky and you will also get distinction if you get above 67% in Solapur University. Let me tell you about Year down system in the university, if you get failed in more than 3 subjects after a year then you will get a year back for that year. So in order to go for the next year you can take maximum of 3 subjects that you will have to clear before the end of same year, as you cannot take any subject from first to third year of engineering. I say this is not very hard to achieve but according to me this system is good as well as bad for some reasons. It is good for those who want to study hard and really want to get something after lots of their hard work.

Better lines on this-

You will feel nothing if you achieve something very easily but if you achieve the same with lots of hard work then it would be more felicitous for one.” -Atishay

Campus & Recruitment in WIT Solapur

Well say college has good placement each year good means fair. Not so bad I can say for any private institute like this. But the campus is much better as compared to other colleges in Solapur & nearby cities. Companies that have visited for IT & CSE last year are-

Mahindra Satyam, HSBC, Patani Computers, Videocon, Persistent System Pvt. Ltd. (PSPL), Syntel, Enhanced Software Solutions, KPIT Cummins, Riktam, Tata Consultancy Services, & Lark India.
