IIT, Roorkee

ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    I took Roorkee Entrance Examination (REE) 1968. I don't really remember my air in REE of 1968 but i got Civil Engineering branch which was the most sought after branch of the institute Erstwhile University of Roorkee.
  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    The education fees was almost negligible as it was the most reputed technical college in the country and under U.P. govt. Admissions were done strictly on the basis of a competitive entrance examination with selectivity hardly 2% of the candidates sitting for the exam. For meals the mess was indeed pricey in those days but that was due to the very high quality of food served.

    HOSTEL FACILITIES

    BE students stayed in 4 hostels Cautley bhawan,Ganga bhawan,Azad bhawan and Ravindra bhawan. The ME and Ph.D. students lived in Jawahar bhawan and Sarojini bhawan. In those days their were hardly any PGs/private hostels as it was mandatory to take up on campus hostel accommodation. Every hostel had its own mess and was extremely clean and hygienic. The food served in the mess was of highest quality and always had variety on offer.
