College Infrastructure
The Institute has decent infrastructure, just enough to cover the requirements of laboratory teaching/learning required. Classrooms are average in size, equipped with air conditioners and projectors. The general consensus among students is in the negative for mess services, though.
Academics
Subjects and specified curriculum are according to industry standards. If some student works hard to cover the curriculum, they should be well prepared for further studies. Moreover, into the curriculum is built time to pursue projects. Overall, it is over the student to make use of their time; if done well, they will definitely not fell overwhelmed by curriculum and find ample time for side quests.
Placements
Placements have been below average till now, partly due to the recent opening of the institute as well as internal performances by students. Students have had double-digit lakhs per annum packages. All boils down how the student makes use of their time.
Value-for-money
PPP model implies the fees is definitely high. And value is nominal.
Campus Life
The institute operates in third party building and has off-campus hostels.

Although IIIT Kalyani is fairly new college(with a just 1st branch passing out this year), it has one big advantage over other colleges that it has only one branch of 'Computer Science and Engineering'. Here coding starts in the very first semester which gives a head start to students. The classes now take place in new campus of WEBEL IT Park. The campus has following facilities as of now: Fully AC Classrooms, Library, Canteen, Computer labs, Conference rooms. Placements are going very strong in college with almost 60% in its first batch including 100% internships in top IIT's and IISC. Till now college does not have its own campus and hostels. The college has taken 3 buildings on rent for students as a hostel and are OK. For first 3 batches college fees were fairly low which is now increased as like other IIIT's, but still is less compared to other private colleges. College professors are nice and have good experiences in their fields with active research. The library is well equipped with all the needed books including latest magazines and newspapers.

HOSTEL : INFRASTRUCTURE is under construction so Rented appartments are provided for loding and the insitute provides the following facilities: WiFi, Food(Optional), Security Cameras, Daily Cleaning of Rooms, 24x7 Water Facility, Table - Chair , Cupboards TRANSPORT Facilities: from College to hostel buses are provided. TOWN : the town is 50kms away from the main town of KOLKATA, private cabs, local trains and bus are only means to reach the place. Eco-friendly town highly affordable electric rickshaw is available to travel within the town. TEMPERATURE: Spine chilling cold during Winters(Dec to Jan). Humid for rest of the year. LANGUAGES SPOKEN :: (In Campus) ENGLISH (preferred) ; (Locals): Bengali Language, Hindi (paritially) CAMPUS: Infrastructure under development, so WEBEL IT campus is used for educational purpose. The classrooms and labs are good. WiFi facility is available in the campus STUDENTS: Cheerful students, ANTI RAGGING CAMPUS, friendly senior-junior relations. Activities : Model United Nations by Udaan (Literary Club), Active participation of students in govt.'s programs like ESEB, Paryatan Parv. Academics: New and advance curriculum as per IIIT standards. Lecturers are cooperative and are regular in terms of assignments. LIBRARY: Diverse books on various computer science fields and mathematics. College life is mediocre.

This is a government college which has an INI ( Institute of National Importance) tag . We have IIT KGP as a mentor , the best mentor a college can get. They are arranging for internships , placements , faculties etc . The first batch got its internships this year at many reputed places . We have what it takes to make a good college . We will grow . We have the enviroment for coding ,studies ,sports etc. So , it is a good place to grow and you can make a college which will be an once in a lifetime chance . So, if you get it , take it . Kudos!!

Firstly, I got This College in 2016 with CSE Branch. When I got this college and spent some time here, I was really disappointed. But Since Now our mentor is IIT Kharagpur, It is Really being developed. Students have Extra Classes on weekly holidays at IIT-KGP. We have shifted to new Temporary Campus at Webel IT Park which have full AC Class Rooms, Labs, Library and Canteen. My 3rd year Seniors are getting Internship Opportunities AND New Faculty, Registrar and Training and Placement Officer is being recruited by Our Mentor IIT-KGP. Workshops are being held on Modern Topics and Technologies. Our Classes are being held in a quite neat and clean AC rooms.Teachers have a choice to use Projectors. Coding Environment is really a Challenging thing here and You will find many ways to learn while competing with others. Seniors are helpful and You can ask them anything related to Coding. We have a decent Library, Which includes more than Sufficient Books and Developing Rapidly. We have a Computer Lab with enough Desktops. Canteen is Really very Good And Have a Nice menu And also the Quality and Variety of Food and other dishes. About Faculty Members, They are really helpful but not very experienced. They will make every way possible So that You can pass Exams Without getting into trouble. Although Their Teaching is a bit traditional But With the experience, they are getting closer to the quality a IIIT needs. College Life is Really That Good If you will not bother about Additional Subjects very much like Environmental Science, Electrical, Mechanical Or PCM. Sports Facilities are not very good but You will Find Many occasions to play Many Matches in a week. Also there is enough Sports Material Available in College Hostel. There is a good Diversity in College, Although Gender Ratio is not that good. Six Months ago I would not have recommended this college to you, But now this college is getting ready to explore New things in IT Industry. And If you don't have sufficient rank to get CSE/IT/ECE in TOP NITs, IITs, or IIITs And want to go for CSE, Then this college is for YOU.

College is under construction in about 50 acres of land. Faculty members are quite good. New faculties will also be coming soon. Separate hostels for boys and girls with full security. College life is normal. Seniors and professors, both are supportive. Ragging free campus.
