The college is very nice, faculty are very friendly and supporting . hostels are excellent and very spaceous , breakfast is nice but lunch and dinner is ok but it's improving day by day , as they take feedback at the end of month, academics are the best , unlike of old iits , faculty are really friendly they always personally clear doubts and we can consult any problem with our faculty advisor. fest are organised in Feb and aal of them are grand, wisseinare,Alma fiesta,esummit are great. cycling culture is present in iit that is really fun. we just get out of hostels and start exploring the campus, and trust me it's vast 936 Acer campus really allows u to discover things.

The Research. It is not easy to summarize the research output at an institutional level, and I am by no means an expert in the relevant metrics. However, for a typical academic, just looking us up should give a fair sense of what's going on. We maintain a reasonably up-to-date repository of publications that our faculty and/or students are involved in, a list of sponsored research projects by discipline, and a list of our research/lab facilities, where an update is overdue (and hopefully coming soon). Notably, a research park is in the works, after the government approved a 90-cr grant to that end. Most of our faculty have their recent publications listed on their profile pages, so that's a good place to start as well. You are also welcome to schedule a visit if you want a more direct sense of the research environment and the kind of work that goes on. In terms of the general atmosphere, we usually do well in terms of routinely having visitors on the campus: on an average week, there's always an interesting talk/event, either of a general or specialized nature, to participate in. Several of these are featured on our Youtube channel: lectures from our GIAN courses will soon be made available (one of them is already up), and videos from several courses, conferences, workshops, and one-off talks are also available. Please note that we are only able to capture a small fraction of the total activity, so I leave it to you to extrapolate or check our facebook feed for a more comprehensive overview. The Education. I don't imagine that we have attempted revolutionizing education in a fundamental sense: for example, we still rely on the JEE for selecting our undergraduate students, we do give out grades like everyone else, our courses still run on the semester system - so I figure we are quite normal in many ways. Having said that, we do experiment, and are about as disruptive as it is possible to be while staying within - or just skirting :) - the norms that come with being a part of the IIT fraternity. Here's a third-party reflection on our foundation program and here is another. Our curriculum structure makes it possible for people to either graduate early or later than their default program duration - we have seen some interesting consequences of this kind of flexibility. We're home to a fair number of brave/fun startup attempts. The Explorer's Fellowship and the Gram Fellowship allows for students to get some glimpses of the real world. The Self-Learning Mode is an interesting sweet spot between mandating attendance and letting students disappear with no sense of accountability. In terms of the content and the structure of our curricula, particularly at the undergraduate level, I realize that some of our choices are considered contentious. In that context, let me point out that we are intensely aware of the issues surrounding these choices: rest assured that the problems enjoy many a colorful debate during faculty meetings and other forums. The Campus. The permanent campus is a joy to be in. Watch this video tour to get a sense of the aesthetics, or check out the campus website to see the features of the campus. Sustainability is at the heart of the campus design, not an afterthought, and that reflects in several details. For example, we were featured in a case study of the Swachh Bharat Mission. We have received several recognitions for the innovations in construction technology, the welfare of the construction workers, and the green features integrated into the campus. General Facilities. We have generally excellent guest houses and hostels, a meticulously maintained library, and plenty of options for sport and recreation. I expect the campus to be fairly self-sustained when the second phase of construction is complete. The office spaces are wonderful, even when they were operational as shared spaces. For the record, and contrary to some speculations on this forum - the offices assigned now are not shared spaces by default. Also, several of us share our offices with students or other colleagues anyway, because it happens to be more productive and fun that way. On the flip side, we could use more hangouts and coffee joints in the academic area! Outreach. This is a huge focus area at the institute - whether it is attention to detail when it comes to the safety of construction workers, or initiatives like NEEV and NYASA. One senses that there is a tangible impact from these efforts, which get more and more systematic and sustainable with every passing year, and it is very heartening to see that this is a passion shared by the entire fraternity. The NIRF Rankings. We weren't the only one who got shuffled around. The rankings have been ripped apart by several experts so I would encourage you to look a little closer than just the number in the outcome. You might say that we didn't point out these philosophical issues when we had the eighth position last year... indeed, while it is true that we were thrilled, the NIRF rankings were not our only bragging rights from that year :) On the other hand, despite the various issues with the rankings themselves, we are in the process of evaluating what happened, and the extent to which we have contributed to the variation. --- Overall: I will emphasize again that there is a general recognition of areas where there is room for improvement. On a meta-note, what I think is reassuring is that the culture here creates frequent opportunities for introspection - for example, the annual leadership and academic conclaves; regular meetings and discussions at the level of the general community, the faculty body, the students, and so on; all done with the intention of reminding ourselves of our overall vision, taking stock and figuring out where we need to course correct. IITGN may not be utopian (what place is?)... however, anyone looking to form their impressions of the institute should consider looking at the work that we do, the collaborations we have, the events we are able to host, the visiting faculty we are able to attract, the kind of students we graduate, and so on. If possible, have direct interactions with people from IITGN over email or in person: you will get a wide(r) spectrum of perceptions. Every story has at least two sides, and I don't believe they are all proportionately represented here.

One of the best among new IIT's

IIT Bhubaneswar remains the most popular choice next to old IIT's which can be easily seen by the JEE ranking of the students opting for it. Being the 3rd largest in area wise among all IIT's (including old one's), IIT Bhubaneswar provides a good piece of infrastructure whether it is school building or residential building or guest house, guest house being the awesome part. College provides single seated rooms right from the first year which enhances the personality development of student and also makes student to learn how to lead his/her life individually. So far, this IIT have made my life fully enjoyable when it comes to different activities of students gymkhana in which student participate and coordinate among themselves whether it is a socio-cultural thing or techno-management thing. Placements at IIT Bhubaneswar is far better than other colleges in terms of total student placed and average lpa. This year almost 90% students got placed in different reputed companies and we hope that this figure will reach to 100% by the end they pass out. Seminars and webinars are continuously held from time to time to give corporate exposure to students. Coming to hostels, as i already mentioned above that it is single seated, mess food is always of good quality and surprise inspection is done at different time intervals to ensure its appeal. In simple words, its awesome to be here.

About College:

The Indian Institute of Technology in Bhubaneshwar was established in 2008. During the Eleventh 5- year plan, it was realized that there was a requirement to extend the number of elite institutions in the country. This included the IITs as well whose number till then was miniscule. Thus, 8 new IITs were established, while IT-BHU was upgraded to the IIT status. These new IITs have over a period of time gained in reputation and are fast closing the gap on the top incumbents. Lakhs of students from all over the country enrol themselves over countless hours of coaching classes in order to secure a seat at the IITs. These new IITs are in – Bhubaneshwar, Rupnagar, Gandhinagar, Hyderabad, Indore, Jodhpur, Patna and Mandi. A further few IITs have opened up later, known popularly as the ‘Baby IITs’. 

Securing a seat at the IITs is done through a rigorous selection process involving the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination). This is the largest entrance exam in the country in terms of numbers and possibly amongst the largest in the world. This paper is given by more than 12 lakh people annually. It is a 3- hour exam worth 90 marks constituting 3 segments with equal weightage. Those segments are- Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics. The best of the performers, totaling roughly 2 lakhs of them are further shortlisted for the JEE Advanced which is for selection to the IITs. The JEE Advanced is conducted over 2 rounds on the same day. The morning paper which runs from 9 am till noon is followed by a break and then another 3 hour one. The pattern however is not so well understood as the marks pattern is not clearly defined. It keeps changing annually. Admissions to the master’s level programmes is via the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering). 

Classes during the first season were held at the IIT- Kharagpur in West Bengal before shifting to Bhubaneshwar by 2009. In 2018, after several years in a makeshift campus, classes were fully moved to the 936- acre permanent campus of IIT- Bhubaneshwar. Classes are held for the flagship 4- year B. Tech programme as well as the 5- year integrated programme. M. Tech, M Sc., doctoral and post-doctoral courses are also run here. The B. Tech can be pursued in the engineering fields of- Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics & Communication, Computer Science & Engineering and Metallurgical & Materials. The academic programmes are run by different schools within the campus with specialized expertise. These schools are in – Basic Sciences, Electrical Sciences, Mechanical Sciences, Infrastructure and Minerals, Metallurgical & Materials Engineering. IIT- Bhubaneshwar is also the first IIT to have a specialised marine campus, which is being built next to the Chilka Lake. This will form the base for the School of Earth, Ocean and Environment Sciences. Realizing its importance over the coming years, the IIT- Bhubaneshwar even has a specialized Humanities and Social Sciences wing. 

The IIT- Bhubaneswar has particularly made a name for itself through various social initiatives undertaken, especially for the promotion of scientific temper among the people. One such programme is Vigyan Jyoti, which is a strategy to involve more girls in scientific study. Then there is the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) under which villages get adopted by some of the premier educational institutes in the country, who in turn will work for the former’s welfare. Another is the Ishan Vikas programme where students from school are made to interact with students from the premier institutes. This initiative is particularly driven towards the students from the North- Eastern states of India. The institute is also connected to the GIAN (Global Initiative of Academic Networks) which offers a method for the academicians to keep updating their academic portfolios consistently. 

This focus on academics and other social objectives have helped the IIT- Bhubaneswar to rack up high rankings across several indexes. It found itself on 18th position among engineering colleges and 51st overall as part of the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) mechanism. The highly- acclaimed QS World University Rankings places IIT- Bhubaneswar at rank 21 within India and 107th for the world. 

The IIT- Bhubaneshwar though is far from being an only -academics place. Rather, it is a place for holistic development. That is why, there is a lot of focus on sports and cultural activities as well. Alma Fiesta is the annual socio- cultural fest of the institute. The techno- management fest is known as Wissenaire, while an E- Summit is organized each year by the Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC).

The institute may not be too old, but it has already created a vibrant alumni network. The alumni committee is in constant touch with the past students, improving the connect on a constant basis. This has helped generate top- notch placements for the present batches. Some of the recent years’ recruiters include- Goldman Sachs, ISRO, IOCL, Samsung, HPCL, Infosys, TCS, Adobe and Renault- Nissan. Core engineering has been the most popular area of placements, followed by IT, NBFC, analytics, education and e- commerce among others.
