FACTS ABOUT IITS
I qualified IIT JEE Entrance exam and got Admissions to the B.arch programmes at the IIT Kharagpur through an Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT) I opt for this particular college because of some positive aspects like Passionate atmosphere. Be it drama, start-ups, music. You get into a society, you become passionate about it. That's the way it works for life.
The placements at IIT are pretty different from the thousands of engineering colleges in the country. You need to maintain a good CGPA (academic score roughly around 7 on 10), to get short listed by the great MNCs that visit the college every year. Microsoft, Google, Facebook, YES Bank, Nomura, Facebook and hundred more companies recruit students from the IIT Kharagpur campus. There are no mass placements, hence the salary students are offered is roughly around 7-9 lakhs per annum.

IIT-KGP has a long and historic legacy of Alumni Giving Back which has existed in one or the other form.
