It is obvious that electrical engineering is better and has more scope than metallurgical engineering in the industry. But, going to an old IIT, there are several things one can learn from and experience the culture, being a part of an institute like IIT Kharagpur or Roorkee. This experience helps a lot in the future.
After coming to an IIT, the overall outlook of how people see IITs changes, and students get to experience the true essence of IITs, which is not limited to the branch, but 100 more things to explore and witness.
In addition to these facts, there is a chance of switching between branches in the 1st year, based on the first semester performance.
Therefore, IIT Kharagpur or Roorkee is definitely the better option to choose among the above institutes, irrespective of the branch one gets.Read more

Ques. Should I take Chemical Engineering at IIT Roorkee, ECE at IIT Bhubaneswar or EEE at IIT Mandi ?
● Top Answer By Sarneet Kaur on 14 Aug 20
Ans.The major factor that drives the decision of which course to pursue is the placements.
Chemical Engineering- IIT Roorkee
As per the 2018-19 placements record, more than 250 companies participated in campus placements, some of them were ITC, Reliance, Jindal Steel, TATA, and many more. Chemical Engineering Students at IIT Roorkee recorded an average placement of INR 13.05 lakhs per annum. A total of 8 PPOs were offered to Chemical Engineering students. Roles were offered for Technologist, Researcher, Data Scientist, Data Analyst, Consultant, etc. The placement rate for Chemical Engineering was around 80%.
ECE at IIT Bhubaneswar
ECE is one of the new branches of IIT Bhubaneswar and was introduced in 2016. Due to this, the first batch to pass out would be the batch of 2020. So there are no past records for this course. However, seeing the trend of placements for electrical engineering, the same can be assumed for ECE as well. In the year 2018-2019, 86% of the Electrical Engineering Department was placed. Companies like Amazon, INTEL Technology, ISRO, DELL, Thermax, Tata Steel, and many more visited to recruit students during campus placements. The average placement was recorded at INR Rs. 11.44 lakhs per annum.
EEE at IIT Mandi

I was not aware of any other course so choosed Civil Engineering. The faculty:student ratio is 1:30. All are IITs graduates and teach good enough to understand the concept by implying practicals in the courses. In one semester, 2 term exams happen, in 45-50 days difference and are easy to pass.
Fee is 1.5 Lakhs/Semester. Financially week students get 100% scholarship on tution fee. Campus placements are good. A lot of companies visit campus and provide ample opportunities to students. Most companies hire from IT background and any student from any branch can apply in those companies.
Course Curriculum Overview :
I chose the course due to my interest. Faculty members are supportive and good. Provide good scope of learning. Faculty members provide research projects to students who are willing to explore reearch field. They get mentorship from Phd students of the respective departments.
I choose this course because I seeing the opportunity of civil engineering in future and not only that being in this branch one can also pursue a career in any other field like technical jobs by taking a minor degree. And civil engineering is an optional subject in other competitive examination like IES. The student faculty ratio is quite good and optimum. Also, all professor are well qualified and dignified in their respective fields but some of them lack teaching skill, I must admit. There are generally two exams in one semester and several assignment and quizzes being held from time to time which is properly designed so to force students to apply their concepts effectively.
Faculty to student ratio is quite good. For a batch of 71 students, we have 22 faculties. From the 2020 batch onwards we are following the term system to increase project work in the curriculum.
All faculties are Phds from eminent institutes and pedagogy is quite good and mostly discussion-based.
Initially, I choose Mechanical out of my JEE rank. The professors are overqualified for their jobs. Many of them have studied in elite institutes and are themselves involved in extensive research. They have worked in various universities abroad, and have various research papers in their names. The curriculum is good, though honestly not the best. To assist teaching we have a number of tutorials, practicals, and lab work. Third yearities have an industrial tour. Outside classrooms are various technical campus groups for you to explore. The academic system is a credit-based system towards the ultimate CG calculation. Each semester has a mid-term and end-term exam. Some courses seem irrelevant and some exciting. The courses may or may not be useless but it matters for the CGPA, kind of important for your resume with the semester being online, classes are held in Microsoft Teams. Other platforms like cisco and google meet are also used. You can access our MGCL (library) online too.
The course curriculum is much advanced. U will get big labs of everything. There is a lecture class, doubt class, and lab for every course. Professors are many advances and much helpful they will help u at every stage give you a platform to do some new and big thing.
The fee structure is quite costly but its worth it as other private colleges are taking much more. The scholarship and financial assistance are easily available by filling up aform and appearing for some special tests. If someone clears them then he/she can avail scholarships.
