BEST COLLEGE IN INDIA TO LEARN COMPUTER SCIENCE.
I've covered most of the stuff. No more no less. IIIT Hyderabad is a unique journey for CS students. The holy grail only 200 students annually are eligible for it. The competition is top notch here and it comparable to the top 5 IITs.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee is expensive. Semester fee is 1, 80, 000 included the tuition fee, hostel fee and the mess fee. The hostel fee is around 30, 000 and the mess fee is around 30, 000 too. Although the mess fee depends on how much eat during your stay, so the fee varies every semester.
FAANG are very frequent visitors to our institute, and most top notch companies come for our students. The college doesn't provide any internship but one can ask the his favorite profeesor to get him under a research assistant. The average CTC given to the Computer Science and Engineering branch is around 24LPA and 18LPA for the Electronics and Communication Engineering. These are very good figures for a recent graduate.
I had only Electronics and Communication Engineering as my choice and I've chosen it as I was very interested in Computer Science and Engineering. I was able to manage both of the tracks and my admission to this college was through JEE Main exam.
Not many alumni have visited our institute, or I miss the opportunity most of the time. We have a dedicated alumni network for which our students have availed the same and now either working in the FAANG or studying in the top 10 universities in the US.
Most of them are very good. Attendance policy is very strict here and profeesors too get motivated to teach more due to high attendance rates. The profeesors I've learned from have done atleast double masters and a PhD in very good institutions, so it's safe to say they're very qualified.
Labs are conducted twice a week on average, and sports are mandatory for the students studying in their first two years. Students are extremely fine and are very tolerant regarding to gender, race and religion.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
IIIT Hyderabad is a top notch research oriented college. Course structure is pretty hectic and very few days were chill. But it was worth it and I've learnt a lot of stuff due to this. Daily study helps you cope up with this curriculum.
We have only one fest, which is the Felicity. It's an annual techno-cultural fest. Being a small college, the festival isn't very large but gains enough recognition by the end of the day. Around 750 people contribute to the working of the fest.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
No. There are no scholarships awarded by the college. Although fee reduction takes place if the student is from a very poor background and struggles to pay the current fee. Other than that, no one is awarded a scholarship.
