College Infrastructure
Campus is newly built and further additional construction is going on. Classrooms are good however first year classes are held in halls. Food is good, however you become habitual to it and wont be eating that much at the mess. There are additional shops and a canteen for food. Whole campus has wifi facility, library has vast amount of resources.
Academics
I am currently a first year btech student. I am pursuing Civil engineering. Quality of teaching is good but some of the teachers are really not upto the mark. However enough resources are available on the google drive and in the library for studies.
Placements
Placements are average. There were few good packages before the year but overall placement quality is average. Iit Gandhinagar is more of a reasearch biased institute than a placement biased institute.

College Infrastructure
Since, Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar is one amongst the newly built IITs, it has great infrastructure and all the facilities and equipments. It is the only IIT other than IIT Jodhpur which has AC hostels. All the classrooms, hostel areas have Air conditioning facilities. The classrooms have smart boards and projectors. The hostel area is very clean. And till now IITGN is the only Institute in the country which has been awarded EAT RIGHT award for its 5 star rating of mess food.
Academics
I am pursuing my B TECH in Civil engineering at IIT GANDHINAGAR. The quality of teaching at IITGN is better than most of the engineering colleges in India. The curriculum is well updated and there is a provision of short courses which are based on recent developments in the field. We are taught all the topics that are necessary to make us job ready.
Placements
The placement are only one such thing in which IITGN is lagging behind other IITs. The highest package of last year was around 31 lpa. And the lowest package was 8.3 lpa. The average package is slightly lower at 13-14 lpa.
Value-for-money
I'm surely getting the value for my money. The food quality is excellent, the hostel area is clean and the institute provides us high speed internet. We also have sports grounds for various sports like Basketball, Football and Volleyball etc.
Campus Life
The best part of my life till now is the campus life. The best and unique feature of IITGN is that you can book a whole classroom by your I-card. You can issue many sports equipments too by filling the entry in the register and submitting your I card there to the guard. The seniors are also very supportive and there is no case of ragging in our campus. Then, all the rooms have Air conditioning facilities, so you never feel hot even in the month of June.
Anything Else
It is the best campus. All the seniors are very supportive. There are many more facilities in academics other than teachers, for example Academic Discussion Hours (ADH) in nights in which senior students clear the doubts of the freshmen and sophomores. Then, the food quality is excellent and we get special food once in a month. Though Girls and boys have separate hostels, but boys can go in girls hostel and vice-versa.

College Infrastructure
Yes the college has all nexessary infrastructure facilities and equipment. The facilities in my classroom, laboratories, libraries, sports centres and hostels . They are well maintained. Living spaces are clean and hygienic. Food is clean and hygienic
Academics
I'm studying mech engineering because of my rank. Equality of teaching is average. The curriculum is updated and includes all recent developments in the field. Yes it does make me job ready. And It's good enough.
Placements
Not good enough. Not much focused on placement. Dont have much data about salaries jobs packages etc etc but as far as I know the placement is not what our college focuses on. It's main focus is foreign universities.
Value-for-money
Average for most part
Campus Life
Meh, not good
Anything Else
Amazing yet challenging

College Infrastructure
Our college has been awarded with the prize for the best mess facility among all the 23 IITs. The infrastructure is up to the mark. The reason being recent construction techniques being used. The hostels have refrigerator, water cooler, induction in each of its floor. The permanent sports complex will be finished by the end of this year. Libraries are well equiped with research papers, thesis and college ses to it that content from other colleges are available either in soft or the hard form.
Academics
I am interested in Civil Engineering therefore pursuing it. Well you can't get every professor as the ideal one but the quality of teaching can be judged by the fact that almost 2/3 of faculty has PhDs from overseas institutions. The flexible curriculum is by far the best feature in case of academics. The student is free to choose whichever course he would like to enroll in(leaving some compulsory subjects). Every semester also includee HSS course(economics, french,philosophy etc).
Placements
Being a research oriented institute, the placements stats can be considered good. The highest for the previous batch being 40+ lakhs(EE). The placement percentage is around 60-70%. The stats are bound to go high owing to the fact that first batch of CS branch will graduate his year. As CS branch flourishes, the number of companies and highest package will increase exponentially. Median salary for the year 2014-15 is 6,63,000. Average salary is around 10-12 lakhs.
Value-for-money
The fees are somewhat high compared to other IITs. The cost is around 1,40,000 per semester. This includes mess as well as laundry facilities.
Campus Life
By far the best campus life I have heard of. There are minimum restrictions. The gates are open 24/7. Boys and girls hostels are in close vicinity <200m and it is allowed to move to each others hostels(apply for girls hostel as well). The staff are supportive.Most of them have good contacts with the foreign universities as well as market. The location is at the outskirts of the city but there are bus facilities to main market every hour.
Anything Else
1. Explorer Fellowship- 42 days travelling experience given to student during summer break. 2 . Invent- Another 6 week program during summer break which includes students teaming to develop invention of societal need. 3 . Amalthea - Technical Summit. 4. Blithchron - Cultural Fest

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure is good. The campus is big enough for the number of students it hosts. There are ample amount of classes. There are two libraries—one in the acad area and the other in the hostel area.
Academics
The courses do not involve many hands-on. You need to work a lot on your own to be able to compete in the real world. To get all the skills that the everyday world requires, we need to go for online courses sometimes.
Placements
Very few companies come. It is more of a research-oriented institute. So it is better for those who want to go for higher studies. Sometimes the companies may be good; sometimes, they go back without hiring any of the students.
Value-for-money
Government college. Not more nor less.
Campus Life
Awesome camous life. Canteens and different places to hang out. Diferent events.

My college's campus is spread over 400 acres ,green atmosphere , pollution free and wifi campus, provides experienced faculty and best accommdation in hostel. There is lack of good market near the college and also there is no permanent playground as the campus is only 2 years old. For better industry exposure, my college keeps department trips for different branches on every Saturday and Sunday in first year. Hostel provides many facilities including study table, chair, indoor games ,late night running canteens, wifi, t.v, refrigerator, oven. laundry, housekeeping.Professors of my college are highly qualified and most of them have been graduated from world's top colleges.Communication skills of the professors are good and hence they can make us understand anything easily. My college is one of the best engineering college in the nation though it offers lots of short humanities courses. Life here is full of fun and friendship ,people enjoy everyday by their own way.

The environment that is provided for the students at IITGn is quite good. It helps us in making independent citizens. The faculty help students to perceive their academic as well as non academic career. The laboratories are not completely developed which causes trouble for students. But I hope that with in few years we will be having complete lab facilities. Students get chance to explore courses apart from the core subjects.

In our college there is emphasis on academic excellence and industrial exposure. Regular industrial trips are organized, and students are encouraged to take projects under professors. The faculty is young and energetic, but there are also old and experienced faculty. Both are extremely good at what they do. Due to the diversity of students in the campus, there is a lot to learn from peers as well. Hostel is a wonderful place to gradually grow independent. Students are encouraged to act as responsible adults.

IIT Ganghinagar was established in the year 2007 along with 5 more IITs. Within no time IIT Ganghinagar emerged as the biggest competitor to the older IITs. It was also the only new IIT to shift to its sprawling permanent campus. Maximum of its undergraduate students are in IVY League colleges. Today IIT Ganghinagar boasts of dynamic students strength.
