IIT, Kharagpur

IIT KHARAGPUR - HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

  • 9.5/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    IIT Kharagpur is endless and Infinite. 10,000 independent lives running parallely, yet all runnng within these 2100 acres, tied up in our own unique culture.

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    First, I had to appear for JEE Mains, 2016. Around two and a half lakh students qualified for JEE Advanced. I was one of them. And then I cleared JEE Advanced with a rank of 10,735.
  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    The fee structure is rather expensive due to the recent fee hike but in comparison to the facilties provided it is not much of an issue relatively. However, for a family hailing from the middle class it is quite difficult to cope with the recent fee structure.

    HOSTEL FACILITIES

    Hostel facilities are awesome. We are provided with single rooms, double bed rooms or rooms which accomodate three students. 24x7 supply of unlimited internet is a delight. The amount of information and contents available on LAN is great. However, the food quality is not at par with our expectations. Other than that describing our hostel life in one word- Awesome.

  • REMARKS

    Surprised to see here is we address seniors not as sir or madam but by their name. It was quite akward for us in the initial month but then we got used to it. Seniors teaches us more than profs. It was yet another strange fact. For eg if i wanted to learn badminton skills a senior would guide me better than our own coach. Same is the case with other sports. On the other hand, alumni network helps us in all possible ways. Sometimes they organise the whole internship programme, some of the times they organise seminars telling us about their life and their struggles. We are really inspired our alumni.

    CAMPUS LIFE

    Campus life- While in other IITs, students would be fascinated by the city; here, the residents of Kharagpur are fascinated by IIT. IIT Kharagpur is an island in itself with all happenings, all possible places where one could hang out, chill, roam, play, and practically do anything is within the campus. KGP transforms into a micro-nation where some brainy folks are captured and left to live five years of their lives. You naturally get a sense of belonging and pride to be here. Gender ratio- 1:10 I guess. One girl for every ten boys. :P And that's something boys aren't too much happy about. XD You will remember your first day in Hall OP, the long advice your senior gave over the mess table. Maybe how you and your friends came up with a brilliant new start-up idea, the days when you planned a birthday surprise for your friend by the lakeside, the times when you got admitted in BC Roy to fake a medical leave, the first day you go all drunk on the roof-top, the 2.2 round on that cold winter night with your girlfriend, the first time you flunked and your friends cheered you up, the times when you headbanged over the rock performance at SF, or the times you spent in group study with friends in muggu room and ensured nobody studied, the CS tournament over LAN, the elaborate jali made for Illu, the long races on Khoj, the Hang-ons everywhere, the GymK Elections, the Hall Day mess and the mess in mess, the NSS Camp and the Fancy Dress Event on Farewell, the Inter-IIT thrill, the torn shirts in Holi, the new Film in Netaji, the first Department Trip, overnight snacks at Chhedis, the first party at Flavors, wow, the list goes endlessly! These memories tie you up. And these are made every single day here.

  • EXAM STRUCTURE

    We have a total of eight semesters over the course of 4 years. Each semester has two major exams- mid semesters and end semesters. Mid semesters account for 30℅ and end semesters account for 80℅ of the total marks. Rest 20℅ marks are for attendance, tutorials and class tests. Labs should be conducted more often so that students get well versed with the topics. When it comes to exams and labs life surely takes a U turn here and probably becomes hectic.

Overall it lives upto your expectations. The college has good infrastructure. All the classrooms are well-equipped with projectors and seminar halls are good.


Entrance Preview -

I took AIEEE (now JEE MAINS) 2011 & scored 287 in the exam. I opted for this college because it is one of the best engineering college in India. The admission process is pretty simple; one has to qualify the entrance exam then give the preference list as per their choice of branch & college, accordingly the option is allotted to candidates as per their rank in various rounds of counselling.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS
Remarks -

There’s no place to be at in the vicinity of the college since it’s located off the highway and students need to travel real far to get to places.The canteen has the exact dimensions of a DTC bus (perhaps it’s even smaller) but it’s definitely more dirtier. The food is cheap but tastes awfully bad and the students are unable to suggest one good thing to an outsider.


Entrance Preview -

For the admission all you need is a JEE rank and a scoreof 50%above in 12th with PCM

Remarks -

Unlike the engineering counterpart, attendance here is not taken lightly. 75% attendance is absolutely needed, under any condition. There have been cases where students have been debarred even at 74%, so basically it’s strict out here and you need to attend religiously. Only a dress code is compulsory, and no other specific disciplinary rules.

JEE- Rank 5455 (General)I was always inclined towards a career in core engineering and being one of the good colleges in India for engineering, it was an obvious choice for me.

There are seminars held in the college round the year but not by some big corporates. Students are made to understand how business works by showing a few presentations by start ups that have made big in life in a short span.

 The students need to learn that they are representing their college, their activities and their performances, so they need to work hard and improve themselves to make their name and of the college too.

It’s a nice place to get graduate. Faculty is not so experienced though. But overall learning experience is good here. There is no free Wi-Fi in college. Timings are also little bit complicated than others. But overall environment is good. Strict directions are followed here. Events and communities are also very active here.

I would highly recommend this college to all those looking out for a career in mechanical engineering because there is no such strictness on the attendance and thus you can enjoy life and study only when you feel like.

You must score an average of 55% or above to grab a seat in Amity Kolkata, along with compulsory subjects that are physics, chemistry and biology or you can have mathematics if you don't go for biology. After applying you will be called for a round of interview and an English essay to test your writing ability.
