If you are getting CS at IIIT which is a 4-year course then it is the ultimate choice. IIIT Allahabad is a renowned college. However, if you are comparing other branches or courses, a quick comparison is needed for that.

  • If you want to pursue any other course other than CS then choose Thapar University.
  • If you want to explore before settling for the Tech profession then you can opt for Thapar University.
  • If you want to work in the tech industry and are 100% sure that you do not want to go for MBA then opt for IIIT Allahabad.
  • If you want to do research then IIIT Allahabad is the potential choice.
  • If you want to examine other branches as well and do not want to only be restricted to IT then Thapar University is the best place.
  • If you are from Punjab then opt for Thapar University as it has enormous value in Punjab. You will feel like celebs there and four years will be worth living.
