IIT mumbai,My Dream college

Posted on 20 Jun' 17 by aastha sharma
Batch of Jan. 1, 2017 | B.Tech Chemical Engineering
My dream is to study in one of the IIT colleges and finally I achieved it.Faculty,friends,College environment and all are good.I would say that it is very hard to get into IIT Bombay, and people give it two or more years of their lives. But at the end of the day, it's worth it! IIT Bombayis one of the few places in India that offer world class education. The infrastructure and labs may be not so cutting edge, but the professors and students that you encounter here are second to none. It took some time for me to get adjusted here.But now I'm really enjoying. Infrastructural facilities are too good in the campus.I'm eagerly waiting for my placements.

Great infrastructure to enable the most innovative crowd

The facilities provided by the Institute are compact and easily reachable, even given the large size of the institute. The eateries remain open till 4 am in the night, ensuring that you can always go for a late night snack. The sports infrastructure is also quite extensive, especially for a college with a nerdy image. There are gyms, canteens and a mess in every hostel, and also indoor games like billiards and foosball. Sports equipment can be issued anytime, making for many late night matches. The Cultural council is also extensive, producing some of the best teams in India, especially in speaking arts, photography and design. There is always something going on in the institute, including entertainment activities like music performances by classical artists, dramas, stand up comedy apart from guest lectures and workshops on political and technical subjects of your choice.

There are all types of facilities available here,we can play any games here.Academics is a plus point too,the professors are quite good but sometime they go so fast that it is hard to catch up to them.For ensure this there are tutorials.The most wonderful thing about this college is we can interact with a lot of people from all over the country.The college hostel is messy,there are very small rooms,hard for two guys to live and mess food is also not too good.The college had a low fees according to the facility they have given.

IIT Bombay is the best college

Posted on 08 Feb' 17 by Lokesh Reddy
Batch of Jan. 1, 2019 | B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering
IIT Bombay is the best college for engineering. Particularly, its Electrical Engineering and Computer Science departments are among the best in the country. There are lots of activities for overall personality development. It offers a diverse environment, wide range of opportunities, and exciting technical, cultural and departmental fests to get the best out of everyone. It has one of the best research facilities in India. Here teaching standards are high and learning is fun. Hostel facilities are good.

I am a bca student Can i join in msc statastics in iit bombay after writing IIT JAM am i eligible ? Or should i take ms maths from nit thirchy ? Or i should go for isi ?

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 26th Jan, 2020

For getting admission in IIT Bombay through IIT JAM in M.Sc. Applied Statistics and Informatics one should have studied Mathematics or Statistics for at least two years/ four semesters in Bachelor's Degree at recognised university.

In order to be eligible for ISI exam one should have cleared BE/BTech or any other equivalent degree such as AMIE or, GRAD-IETE or, DOEACC B Level.

Since, you have done BCA, you are not eligible to appear in these exams.

I hope this helps.

Feel free to ask if you have any more queries

i am going to be a diploma engineer in 2021. I had also passed my 12th std exam in 2019 with PCMB subjects. I coudnt get 65% in 12th exam. On the basis of my diploma marks and jee advanced marks in 2021, can I apply for IIT bombay for btech engineering ? If yes then how much marks should I score ?

Rishi Garg 25th Jan, 2020

First of all, if you have passed your 12th Std. examinations in the year 2019 then according to the eligibility criteria of JEE Advanced, you will not be able to appear for JEE Advanced 2021.

Also, If anyone wishes to pursue B.Tech at IIT Bombay, then the admission is purely based on the rank of the candidate in JEE Advanced exam and nothing else.

And one more thing, according to the eligibility criteria of JEE Advanced, one has to score at least 75 % marks in 12th Std. or has to be in the top 20 percentile of his respective board to appear for JEE Advanced.

If you want cutoffs of last years for the admission to various IITs, kindly use the following link:


IIT BOMBAY chemical engineering is good or IIT gandhinagar materials science?

Vikas gehlot 25th Jan, 2020

The answer is obviously IIT Bombay chemical engineering is far better than IIT Gandhinagar material science and engineering the reasons are following.

The infrastructure available at IIT Bombay is far exceeding than Gandhinagar.

IIT Bombay is well established chemical engineering department whereas material science engineering department IIT Gandhinagar is new.

Even in later stages of your course if your interest deviates from chemical engineering for core courses like material science then IIT Bombay will provide your backup option option in terms of placement is there is more than 80% placement.

if you look at the opening closing rank of both the courses then you can easily spot the difference the closing rank at IIT Bombay chemical engineering compared  to material science and engineering at IIT Gandhinagar.
