UNDER GRADUATE PROGRAMME @ INDIAS BEST UNIVERSITY
The institute funded by DST and other sources is run a clean form. The administration is but slow in cases of funding and meeting our small problems.
The exams that i took last year are 1 IIT JEE (221/504) AIR - 3315 Obc : 515, Jee mais 215/360, Air 3305 Obc: 505 2 CUSAT CAT AIR - 109 OBC 8 3 Kerala CEE (engg) rank -159 OBC 74 4>NEST rank -54. I chose this course over other courses because i had interest in going for basic science research than an engineering B Tech course. Also for any student wishing to persue pure science career this institute is the best in INDIA.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure is a follows 13,000/- per year tution fee 3500-4000 mess bill per month 200-400 rs hostel rent per month. Total of about 61,000. (remember we gets atleast 4000 PM as stipend +20,000 an year as contingency fund 64,000 an year). No other fee such as laboratory expence and all.

The Course curriculum for the first 3 semesters include single courses in maths, physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. As engineering course for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd semester we have Computer Science, Electronics and materials engineering respectively. The course work is pretty rigorous as it is based on the foundations on each of the subject.
The internship here are not with companies as the course is related to Reserch in basic science. The Institue offers paid internship in top colleges of the world( generally in US, UK,Germany and Netherlands) during the summer after 3rd year of the course to academically well performing students (about 35 studets out of 110).
