Bad trip

Remarks -

The management is extremely slow to implement ideas of students. Things have not yet been digitized and one needs to get a paper signed by at least 5 people before you can get something approved. Otherwise they are friendly and open to suggestions

Dream but someone else's

Remarks -

It is a very good technical institute and the administration tries it maximum to support the student community. If you want to study engineering in the country, IITs are the best choice before you. You can learn a lot.

Why to join IIT

Remarks -

Almost every day is like a festival with people from all parts of the country and also because of the presence of some foreign students. Thus its a good thing promoting unity/ harmony. It will be better if only vegetarian food is made available in the campus. Smoking should b banned in strict sense. The shops around the campus should be closed either by telling smoothly and if not that does not work..then by using police force. In the name of freedom..some people (who cannot be called students) are behaving wrongly either with indecent dress up or spending time wastefully on internet. Only good songs should b permitted during college fest.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

A Home of many experiences

Remarks -

The management tries to involve only so much when it comes to students and thus give necessary amount of freedom. It is always supportive of what students want to do and even contributes positively sometimes. Institute is quite friendly in all the formalities and shows patience in every aspect. These are the things which helped it bag back to back first ranks in NIRF rankings of Indian Colleges.
