Bangalore Engineering Colleges Review: Pesit

Review on PES, PES Institute of Technology (VTU autonomous), Bangalore. Ratings, students’ opinons, hostels, placements, packages and more.


This review is about the PESIT Main Campus in Banashankari. The new campus near Electronics City (formerly PES School of Engineering) will be reviewed shortly.

PESIT or PES Education Society is an old and well established engineering college in Bangalore. PES stands for People’s Education Society and this society has a lot of educational institutions nder its umbrella. Do not confuse PESIT with PESSE (in electronics city) or PESCE (in Mandya), although the other two are decent colleges as well, run by the same management.

PESIT has a strong alumni base dating back to 40+ years, most of them teaching as professors in the institution now. The USP of this college is great teaching with quality research exposure. PESIT student projects have been consistently covered by the media, including a water fuelled car, an F1 car prototype, the SCARA robot and recently, the Serio balancer. Mechanical and ECE are the branches that have been rated as the best by students.

PESIT is autonomous under VTU which means that the college can have its own syllabus, question papers and valuation but the final degree is awarded by VTU.

Pros of PESIT:

1) Excellent teaching. PESIT has always had great faculty.

2) Very good placements, especially for Mechanical engineering. Mercedes Benz visited the campus for 2011 batch, a first for any Bangalore engg college.

3) Great infrastructure. Centrally located so the area around is is commercial, guaranteeing easy availability of little things students need.

4) Hostels are good. Girls and boys hostels are on campus, separated by a good distance. No ragging whatsoever. Food in the hostel is decent (veg only) but a variety of eating options are available right outside the campus

5) No smoking/tobacco buy-sell restrictions for 100m around the campus, promoting a healthy environment for learning.

Cons of PESIT:

1) School atmosphere. Dress code exists : collared shirts only for boys, ‘decent’ outfit for girls.

2) Very strict in terms of attendance, marks, submissions, etc.

3) Culturally passive. Apart from their fest Atmatrisha (which is good, btw), college teams from PESIT are rarely seen at other fests or events.

4) Campus is a little congested.

The cons of PESIT are few, if you are looking for a healthy learning environment. The crowd is largely nerdy and passive. If that is not a problem, PESIT is a great place to be.

PESIT rating : 4/5

    Congratulations. :)
    Placement for Biotech is limited. Some IT companies do allow biotech students to enter but core biotech companies don’t really come to campus..maybe 2-3 at the most.
    Change of branch is possible but depends on how many vacancies are created after first year and your performance in first year. Don’t depend on it.

    I don’t have much info about Mtech in PESIT but even if placements are not that good, if you pass out from PESIT, you’ll get a job easily anywhere in Karnataka.

    PESCE Mandya has below average placements when you compare it with PESIT and PESSE. You can get the usual 3lpa IT job..but don’t bank upon placements here.

    You can definitely get it during second round of counselling. In the first round, choose mechanical in bmsce if you dont get pesit. That’s the next best option.
