College Infrastructure

As one of the oldest Indian Institutes of Technology's (IIT's), it has good facilities and infrastructure available for any course that has been chosen. The facilities of the hostel and mess are also good and well maintained. The quality of the food is also good, but one who is not used to the north Indian style of food may find it difficult, like me.

Have a question related to IIT Kanpur ?


As per the IIT Kanpur cutoff 2023, the Round 1 and the Last Round closing ranks for B. Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering were 215 and 238, respectively for the General All India category candidates, so a candidate scoring anything near this can expect IIT Kanpur.

Hope this helps you,

Thank you

Hello Aspirant,

There is no concept of getting a free seat in IITs . You need to clear jee advanced to get into these colleges . And you need to be under atleast 2-3k to get a good branch in these IITs in these colleges.

The cut offs although varies a bit depending upon the certain factors such as number of candidates appearing in the examination, previous year cutoffs and difficulty level of the paper.

what is the cutoff for MS admissions for ME at IIT Kanpur? i have 615 gate score and 66.68 btech%

Hello Siddharth,

Considering you as a general category candidate and as you want to take admission in IIT KANPUR for M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering so let me tell you that your all India rank should be under 3k only then you would be able to take admission in IIT Kanpur.

However the cut offs doesn't only depend on the difficulty level of the examination but it also depends on number of seats available in the college, previous year cut offs .
