Rajiv Gandhi Institute of technology is located near the 7 bunglows in versova. If travelling by train then the college is 3.6km from andheri railway station. Take Bus no. 221 from andheri west and get down at versova link road, 2 min walking from there. If travelling by metro, the college is very close from versova metro station(1.1km). the location is not accessible to the students travelling by train. Due to its 'not-so-good' location, students from the Central and Harbour belt and Navi Mumbai tend to avoid this college. "
The main Fest of RGIT is Zodiac and it has various programs like rock concerts and gaming events. LAN gaming has been held in this festival regularly. The college hosts many inter-college events which is taken part of by many of the other engineering colleges in the area. This gives the opportunity to the students to mingle with students from other colleges. Various technical and cultural fests throughout the year are organized by the technical organizations, i.e. IEEE, CSA, ISA. Its great for sports and extra curricula’s.
It is indeed one big problem that students face. Not 75% but a minimum of 55% is necessary. Be careful with your professors like in any other engineering college
Crowd and surroundings
Crowd here comes from a mixed background. Some come here through reservations, while some others being from rich families, pay their way into the college. The others who land up here are due to their scores in CET. Boys to girls ratio is the same like any other engineering college. Students from the Western and Northern suburbs and South Mumbai are mostly seen in this college.Best place to hangout foodies can always find a famous spot a couple of meters ahead. College is located near a beach. Versova beach and 'Versova rocks' followed by Yari road are all very close to the college and will cost a minimum rickshaw fare to get you there. Eatery joints like Kareems and drinking joints like Pop Tates and Sodas have always attracted the students. Lokhandwala is another excellent hangout next to the college where you can expect almost everything under the sun. Movie buffs can look out for Fun Republic (also famous for its Bowling Alley) and Fame Cinemas at Citi Mall.
Teaching is good Not so strict on students. Overall the faculty is ok.
Infrastructure and college life
Infrastructure of the college is pretty good too. The building's architecture is world class. An infrastructure of glass windows and a balcony on each floor. Great seniors with amazing college life. canteen is reasonable and hygienic, library is also excellent, in term of sports its little poor. Its good for the studios students.
Placement is not very impressive. Placement for instrumentation branch is poor. Infosys in the major recruiter.
