The College management was very active and honest in their duties. The institute has an anti-ragging committee to ensure that there will be no such incident happen to innocent newly admitted student by the seniors. I any student or a team found guilty of involved in such incident then they will be terminated from the institute immediately.

The campus life was awesome and life changing for me. It was a good mix of academic as well as cultural. The days flown in a hurry as we have a lot of academic work to as well as there was ample opportunity for other extracurricular activities like Sports,Swimming, Robotics,Music,Drama,Administrative,Debates,Aerospace etc. We have intra Hostel sports competition on cricket,football,chess etc. The gender ratio in the campus was approximately 7:1 for boys versus girls.

Alumni/Alumna

Every graduating student of the institute have an opportunity to become an Alumni for Life time by enrolling into IIT Kanpur Alumni Association. The institute arrange Alumni days so that Alumni members can interact with the students and share their experience and provide networks or industry contacts to the students. I had gained a lot from some of the Alumni members of our department.

Exam Structure

Each semester was divided into three parts mid term 1,mid term 2 and end semester exam. Normally mid term exams were based on the topics recently covered in the class and the marks will carry a certain percentage in the final end sem exams. We also have some lab work as well as regular assignments. So I would say a bit hectic schedule from Mon - Friday.

Faculty

10/10

The faculty strength was excellent. The department have a solid pool of Academicians specialized in various fields. They have build a strong foundation for the courses I had opted for. All the faculties had a minimum of Ph.D qualification form premier institutes and quality publications. They also engaged in Industrial assignments,projects.

By the merit selection and interview, college selects the students. I like the most important thing of this college study environment, hard-working teacher and their dedication to the students.

Admission

This is one of the best university wherein not only you learn the elements of your discipline but also learns the human discipline and above all - sanskar i.e. Value system. There is one all India entrance test and the merit list of the test is only criteria of admission.

Placement Experience

6/10

Placement is still limited and very limited scope of internship but what I learnt there made it very easy for me to get a job. I am in a senior management position in banking and had various better offers but the value system I learnt there is holding me back to serve the people as mahamana did, though my efforts are less than even one millionth of what he did.

There is no internet available on each computer in the lab only the faculty computer is connected to the internet so I think as a animation students internet is the main thing for us in computer labs as they help you to create more good quality of projects.
