Which I better in terms of placement and learning opportunities- IIT Kanpur Civil or IIT Bombay Metallurgy?
You want comparison between two different branches in different IITs. It's a little difficult but I will try my best to provide you much needed information.
It has 3rd ranking by NIRF. It is a top institute for engineering and dream college of most of the aspirants.
Getting metallurgy branch can be tough through jee advanced.
Faculties are Ph.D holders and experienced.
Placements are no doubt very good with a median salary of 11.78 Lakhs. For metallurgy brance companies which offer placement are Micron and JSW.
It's NIRF ranking is 16.
Going for civil engineering will be very beneficial here as the learning is very great. You can gain good knowledge of civil engineering subjects and go for competitive exams such as IES.
The faculties are excellent at teaching and have good knowledge.
Placement opportunities are no doubt very great. Median salary has been 15 Lakhs. But these placements are maximum for non core branches and very less for core branches such as civil. Although GAIL is one PSU coming for campus recruitment.
Below I have provided a comparison of both the college with the required branches.
Hope this is helpful enough.
