I have gained a lot from this institute in the short duration I stayed there. So all I have a very good impression about this institute. 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.
I have taken IIT JAM exam in the year 2004 and secured 58 all India Rank with this rank I have got selected in IIT Kanpur for MSc 2 Year program in the department of Mathematics and Statistics. IIT Kanpur is ome of the premier institute in India. So when I get an opportunity to get admitted I did not look back.
The course curriculum was very rigorous as expected from a premier institute. We have a option to choose elective courses right from the second semester onwards. There was surprise quizzes,mid term and end term exams as well as assignments white paper,short projects and dissertations as part of the evaluation process.
The internship was great. Many IT/ ITES companies came in the campus. To name a few like GE,Cognizant,Capgemini,Infosys,TCS,HCL Technologies,IGATE,Tech Mahindra, Google,ITC Infotech,Wipro,Accenture,IBM,Patni Computer System. The stipend was very handsome ranging from Rs 15000 to Rs 30000 per month.
Throughout the year IIT Kanpur used to organize many cultural and academic festivals like Antaragni,Techkriti,Hall Days, Sree Krishna Janmasthami,Durga Puja,Diwali,X-Mas and Happy New Year,Alumni Meet etc. Antaragni is the annual cultural festival of IIT Kanpur held in the month of October and is one of the popular college festivals in India. It is a four-day-long festival attracting participation from over 200 colleges of India.

Antaragni has included performances by Vishal Shekhar,Sonu Nigam,ShankarﾖEhsaanﾖLoy,Poets of the Fall,Sunidhi Chauhan and Raghu Dixit. The festival also aims to serve as a platform for the expression of youth opinion on social problems. Techkriti is an annual inter-collegiate technology and entrepreneurship festival organized by the students. It was launched in 1995 with the aim of developing interest and encouraging innovation in technology among students. Hall days are being celebrated for all the hostels in the campus in their respective hostel foundation dates.
The fees at IIT Kanpur was affordable as it was funded by many Govt departments like UGC,NBHM etc. The fees for out course was approximately 1.5 lakh for the 2 years including all standard expenses.
The institute have merit cum means MCM scholarship for the meritorious but needy students based on parents income level. The MCM scholarship amount was Rs 1000 per month for the entire duration of the course renewable at the end of every academic year subject to satisfactory performance. The department of Mathematics and Statistics also offer a scholarship called NBHM scholarship for department students only. The scholarship amont was Rs 1200 per month for the entire duration of the course.
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.
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.
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.
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.
College has all necessary infrastructure,equipment. Classrooms are old but seating facalities are good. Laboratories in LU is very nice all necessary things are available. It has one of the finesh library.
Quality of placement is very nice. Out of 50 around 35 gets posted. Talked about percentage ita almost 70 percent. Highest salary can be 7 to 8 lakh per annum. Teachers are very supportive always ready to help.
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. When I come to this college and I was selected on the basis of merit and interview, I feel that I selected a good College for my study.
My college is good but it can be better with some improvements.
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 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.
Well it has been 2 years for me in university of Allahabad. All are good just need to support from all specially from teachers. Although talking about my department support of teachers are good but some Infrastructure problem of my department (Earth and planetary sciences).
Placement is nice about 60 percent of the student was selected but in my stream, it is not necessary that you may select its tough to be selected by the selectors here.
The course I choose was good but I have only done my post graduation for the degree and have succeeded in that with great knowledge and experience.
