Remarks

The college management is not the best but does a fairly good job.

Admission

I opted for this course because I wanted a diverse department which leaves me opportunities to dabble into various engineering fields. Factors that made me choose this institution were: name tag, good placement record, best faculty in the country, exposition to international events, etc. You have to give JEE mains and qualify it to give JEE advanced and then get into the merit list to get selected in this college.

Remarks

The negative remark is not about the college. It is about the place where it is situated. Kharagpur can not even called a city. The roads are really bad the place can be called underdeveloped. However the college campus is great and maintained very well.

Ques. Has IIIT Hyderabad CSE grown beyond IIT Madras and IIT Kharagpur?

● Top Answer By Ashish Tiwari on 04 Mar 21

Ans. If you wish to have a good campus life during graduation and plan on pursuing MBA after or prepare for Civils, without any second thoughts go to IIT Chennai. But if you want to learn about CSE in the best possible way during your 4 years of engineering then IIIT-H is the right choice for you. Placements:  Placement depends entirely on the students. However, a student with 6 CGPA at IIT Madras is more likely to get better placement than a student of IIIT Hyderabad.  Research: (Winning Institution - IIIT Hyderabad) Due to better faculty and environment, IIIT-H produces a better quality of research than IIT Chennai and in IIIT-H you see undergrads publishing papers in top-notch conferences.  Coding Culture: (Winning Institute - IIIT Hyderabad)  In the summer of 2020, a total of 20 students from IIIT H has been selected for GSoC with 4 UG first-year students in the mix. This indicates that the coding environment in IIIT-H is at a whole new level. The best performance from any team in ACM ICPC world finals from India was from IIIT Hyd. Finally, if you are not sure of your core and main field of interest, you should opt for IIT-M.Read more

Ques. Why is IIT Kanpur CS preferred over IIT Kharagpur and IIT Madras?

● Top Answer By Sabeer Chalana on 04 Mar 21

Ans. Firstly, let me make it clear that Kanpur, Delhi, and Mumbai are preferred over IIT Kharagpur and IIT Madras for almost every branch. The main reasons are as follows.  Placements: The placements at IIT Kanpur are slightly better than Kharagpur. Trend: While choosing an institute, students tend to choose an institute based on the past year’s trend. Since the campus placement record for the top 5 IITs remains the same over the past 5 years, students tend to go to these institutes.  These are a few of the reasons why students prefer IIT Kanpur for CS over IIT KGP and IIT Madras. Read more

Ques. Which should I prefer, IIT Kharagpur computer or IIT Delhi electrical?

● Top Answer By Diya Suresh on 17 Feb 21

Ans. It would have been easy to answer your question if you had specified your preference. IIT Delhi Electrical: Being situated in a metro city, it will offer better recreational opportunities. The city has big shopping malls, famous food joints like McDonald’s. As for Electrical, choose this branch if you want to pursue core-engineering. If circuital branches interest you this is the branch for you. Electrical course work at IIT Delhi is a mixture of Electronics, Instrumentation, and Control so this will be a really good option.  IIT Kharagpur Computer Science and Engineering: If applying logic brings you more joy than solving complex differential equations, and you want to know how google search works rather than how a transistor functions, CSE at IIT KGP is the right choice for you.  You will also get better salary packages from CSE at IIT Kharagpur.  DC++ at IIT KGP offers unlimited downloads. There are also many extra-curricular activities that you can take part in.  So, sort out your priority and choose which interests you more.Read more

Ques. Why there are so many (nearly 200) dropouts every year from IIT Delhi, IIT Kharagpur?

● Top Answer By Rekha Solanki on 17 Feb 21

Ans. There are several reasons for students dropping out from IITs, including lack of interest and passion, pressure, and even not the inability to cope up with the institutional competition. The table below provides some statistics regarding the dropout rates at IITs in recent years. Academic year Dropout rates 2015-16 2.25% 2016-17 1.6% 2017-18 1.71% 2018-19 1.46% 2019-20 0.68 Reasons to Drop-out: There are people who motivate students by saying that cracking JEE Advance and going to an IIT is the final task to settle in life. This is a wrong notion that is usually imbibed into the minds of students. There are instances in which students, after getting into IIT, can’t cope up with the syllabus. They get frustrated, and before things turn out to be worse, they quit engineering. On the other hand, there are some students, who after getting into engineering realize that they have a different passion in life and try to make a career in it, thus quitting the degree program. These are some of the reasons prevalent for dropouts in IITs. But, it is to be considered that engineering is a way of life. It teaches the students to pass through any ups and downs in life as well as careers.Read more
