IIT Kharagpur is among the few places in India which give access to a Bloomberg terminal.This is one of the few things KGP has to offer to help you leap forward on the non-core career path. So, if you are a non-core aspirant, the place is heaven for. Greater flexibility in the course framework should be there. Most importantly I would love to have better Gender ratio here. Some departments should enhance their framework for placement. Also, departments like Aerospace Eng. should be merged with the Mechanical department, as it will lead to the opening of many Companies for Aero students as well.

Being one of the prestigious institutes of the nation, IIT Kanpur is a special blend of a modern life and traditional values. The hostel cultures that make the campus an unforgettable experience. That midnight cricket tournaments, early morning bakar sessions, community computer warfare and so many other things. Clubs are the best place to relax and recharge with the indoor sports facilities including Snooker Tables, Carrom, Chess boards, Table Tennis and Foosball table. Physical recreation through games and sports has been an important part of the Institute. The campus groups work together toward a certain goal. Many hangout places form a essential part of my life at IIT Kanpur.

A very good college atmosphere with an equally excellent student crowd. The faculty is top notch and so are the facilities. The only complaint that I may have is the immense study load that is there but I guess it is expected from a college of such repute.

IIT Kanpur has the best set of professors and teaching assistants, who are experienced in their respective fields of interest. Professors encourage research and innovation in spite of just traditional teaching methods. Teaching Assistants are helpful and knowledgeable. Various courses are offered by IME department which gives a student exposure to the industry. The curriculum is so designed that students not only studies the subject but goes through overall development. Facilities in the campus are more than just enough. Many times, students are not able to utilize them for research. The campus provides wifi, internet facilities 24x7, the largest library in central India and well-furnished classrooms.

IIT Kanpur contains many infrastructural wonders like the Main Auditorium , Lecture Halls, Department Buildings,Open Air Theatre,state of art laboratories.My college life is so enjoyable because of the much needed freedom that have been given to us by the institution.The institution provides free wi-fi around lecture halls. Facilities like Solar Heaters, Single Rooms, Canteens Security etc are only few of the amazing things in our hostels. Each and every professor in our institution is totally devoted to each and every student here.Every year approximately 1000 students take admission here after clearing JEE ADVANCED.

IIT Kanpur feeling of dream come true

Batch of 2015 | B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering
I had really awesome experience here. I loved this college as it has really helped me to grow as a Engineer, as a human and overall development of mine. It gave me platform to showcase my talents in "ROBO WAR", YANTARGENE etc.The daily routine consists of lectures/lab sessions from 8 am to 5 pm in the evening and are generally lightly loaded with assignments and pre-reads in the first two years. The number of assignments and pre-reads increases in the last two years as more specialization subjects come into picture. COURSES OFFERED: Undergraduate courses: Aerospace Engineering Biological Sciences & Bio engineering Chemical Engineering Civil Engineering Computer Science & Engineering Electrical Engineering Industrial & Management Engineering Materials & Metallurgical Engineering Mechanical Engineering post graduation courses: M.tech, P.H.D. FACULTY: Well, we’re talking about the top engineering institute in India. Undoubtedly, the reputation of the college is primarily because of its excellent teaching staff. One of the mandatory rules at IITK is that all the professors should be atleast a PhD qualified. Most of them have got their degrees from great and high ranking universities in the USA. They’ve ENOUGH industrial experience and teaching experience at many other institutions. Some are visiting faculties at other engineering colleges. IIT Kanpur’s faculty for Computer and Electronics course is excellent and students are extremely satisfied with the teaching level. Communication isn’t a problem as almost all communicate in English. Some try to get a bit friendly and talk in Hindi as well. All in all extremely chilled out and highly knowledgeable faculty at IITK. Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur believes that internships provide the students with an unrestrained opportunity to explore the practical insights of the industry and the corporate world. The college provides summer internship program for pre final year students which can be converted into a pre placement offer. The Students' Placement Office of IIT Kanpur is the body that organizes the internship season in the institute. Famous Alumni: Narayana Murthy- Founder of Infosys Duvvuri Subbarao- Governor of RBI Som Mittal-President at NASSCOM Lalit Jalan- CEO of RIL and Deans List at Wharton IT’s are one of the premium institutes for engineering in India. As mentioned before, every student dreams to get in, but a handful of them qualify. One has to take the toughest entrance exam IIT-JEE to get admitted to any IIT institutes. As Kanpur is not one of the metro cities like Mumbai and Delhi, it’s generally ranked 4th or 5th best institute in the country. You need an All India Rank (AIR) around 500-700 to get your desired stream. If you want to join the institute at the cost of comprising the stream, then a rank around 1500 will also fetch you IITK. Rankings do matter a lot for engineering colleges, but when it comes to IIT’s, it’s simply IIT!. So guys and girls work hard to get this college, you will surely think that its a "HEAVEN".

IIT Kanpur- Way to success

Posted on 04 Feb' 17 by Milind Patil
Batch of 2018 | B.Tech Civil Engineering
Though the college is not centrally located around the city of Kanpur, it has got quite an urban campus. Some students refer the campus of IITK as the best amongst all the IIT’s in the country. The lecture rooms are extremely neat and clean with comfortable benches. The air conditioned classrooms are well equipped with projectors which makes lecture sessions very live. There are many recreational centres within the campus. Moreover, the campus is wifi enabled which keeps research work and socializing to the premium level.

My experience at IIT Kanpur has been wonderful so far. The faculty is extremely dedicated. Irrespective of what your interests are, you will meet people here who will be able to teach you a lot in that field. The co-curricular scenario is rather outstanding, be it sports, cultural activities or anything else. The environment is highly competitive, but in a positive way.

Hostel rooms are spacious and shared among 3 students in their 1st year, and by 2 students in following years. Mess provide good quality of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Placements, as expected, were very good. All those students who applied for the job, they all landed with one or more jobs. Around 70-75% of total strength were successfully placed in various companies like Samsung, Deutsch Bank, etc for posts like Data Analyst, Software Engineer, etc. Highest salary was around 22 lakhs per annum while the average was around 12-14 lakhs per annum.

A place I belong to

Prajakta
Posted on 29 Nov' 16 by Prajakta
Batch of 2018 | MBA
I would like to keep my answer structured (4 months of MBA effect :P ) *Infrastructure: The best you could get (more than expected) in India. In other words here at IIT Kanpur you just name it and you get it. Just to name a few: Library with AC and all the books you would ever need. A highly subsidised CCD just below it (which remains open 24 hours during exams). Availability of food 22 hours a day (suits the majority chunk of MBAs who are night creatures). AC classrooms with best video conferencing facilities and seating without the strict fixed nameplates we see elsewhere. *Professors: They can give you a complex for sure. You have to work hard coz ‘MAN you are in IIT’. *Peer group: Very very diverse. Plus there are a few from other departments and countries as well. IIT believes in no restrictions specially when it comes to knowledge and learning. And from my personal experience as the headline suggests this is the place where i belong. Some place i always wanted to be, with so much of intelligence, creativity, original thinking and freedom around. *Hostel life: Amazing, again without the unnecessary 'Boarding School' rules. We have a total of 11 Halls of Residence for boys and 2 for girls with 1 more coming up soon. *Industry Exposure: The Corporate Relations Committee won't let you splurge a single weekend. Here we mean business. *Affordability: One of the plus points. Yes the charges are very less compared to industry standards because IITs really don't depend on student money. Finally I would say if you really want to get an overall MBA experience and not just a 6 digit salary at the end of 2 years, you should definitely come here!!

Batch of 2013 | B.Tech Electrical Engineering
IIT Kanpur provides a great experience for students in various aspects of life. Beginning from meeting/living people from/with different parts of the country a student will have exposure to various kinds of cultures. The infrastructure provided is one of the best in the country with practically no restrictions over access to various facilities. The things lacking are environment and motivation for higher studies. Students typically go in the stampede of job hunt instead of actually following their passion. Another disadvantage is not being located in metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai which affects not only out of college life but placements as well.

SAC is the hub for most of the major extra-curricular activities. There are two SAC buildings, the older building(Old-SAC) and the other (New-SAC), which was recently built. New-SAC has an open-air theatre (OAT) with a capacity of over 1400 people. The SAC is maintained and managed by the Students' Gymkhana at IIT Kanpur.Inferno is an inter Hall sports festival of IIT Kanpur. It is a part of General Championship(GC) which held between different pools(pool is a group of Halls). It provides a platform for bringing forward the sporting talent around the campus where students play hard to fight for the glory of their respective halls. Inferno is divided into two parts: Freshers inferno and main inferno.

The huge lush green campus with all the eminent facilities that no other institute can provide whether India or abroad. But IIT Kanpur isn’t just about engineering, it is the finest technological institute of the country because of its excellent faculty, and its amazing facilities. There are 11 hall of residence or hostels with 1 more coming up. Each hostel is equipped with its own mess, sports facilities, music room etc. There are inta-hall competitions that add to the charm of which hall is best. There is a gymkhana with the latest facilities for sports, music etc. The central library is huge, with lots of research work and latest editions of all books. There is unmatched high-speed LAN access in every room without any restrictions on download limits, while the academic area is WiFi enabled. Active DC++ (intranet) provides access to important shared data and media quickly. Indoor badminton, basketball courts, brilliant grounds, 50m swimming pool, TT room, squash court, tennis court are the facilities available at the institute level, not to mention facilities available in hostels. The tennis court is one of the major attraction if you are into any sport.

IIT KANPUR is a great place to be.It offers you the state of art infrastructure,be it well-equipped classrooms of Lecture Hall Complex or the students GYMKHANA comprising of squash courts,table tennis court,aerobics hall,pool hall,etc.Here we have innumerable clubs as music,dance,dramatics,fine arts,astronomy,mountaineering,shooting and a lot more.Professors of IITK needs no introduction and no doubt we learn under the guidance of THE BEST of their fields.Besides,attending lectures whenever we want to hang out with friends OAT (Open Air Theater) is our favourite.With an awesome sound system and projector,under the clear night sky with gentle breeze gliding by your ears the experience of watching a movie or a match at OAT is probably better than the best of theatres.In short,whatever you can ask for ... IITK is there to give you.

The single most feature that dominates over everything else is freedom. Freedom in academics, extra-curricular activities makes the institute really loving. There is possibly every opportunity for living your dream. If you have some spark in you, this institute is a fuel that can ignite the fire. Bring a spark, you will be trained to keep your fire burning in every possible situation in this world.

The Dreamland

Abhirup Saha
Posted on 14 Feb' 16 by Abhirup Saha
Batch of 2019 | B.Tech Materials Science and Engineering
IIT’s are one of the premium institutes for engineering in India. As mentioned before, every student dreams to get in, but a handful of them qualify. One has to take the toughest entrance exam IIT-JEE to get admitted to any IIT institutes. As Kanpur is not one of the metro cities like Mumbai and Delhi, it’s generally ranked 4th or 5th best institute in the country. You need an All India Rank (AIR) around 500-700 to get your desired stream. Rankings do matter a lot for engineering colleges, but when it comes to IIT’s, it’s simply IIT! Roughly, there are about 250-300 odd companies that visit the Kanpur campus of Indian Institute of Technology. Huge! To name a few, Reliance, Siemens, Goldman Sachs, Mckinsey, Facebook, InfoX, Google are the standard recruiters during the placement season. Like any other engineering college, there is no mass recruitment, hence, students are paid a whopping salary roughly around 8-10 lakhs per annum. Oh, forgot to mention, 100% placements. Being the best engineering institute in India, the college is quite well known for its internships. Big MNC’s recruit students in the third year for a summer internship of 2-3 months. Almost all these internships are paid, the salary being around 25,000 to 30,000 per month. According to me : THE DREAMLAND.

Life at IIt Kanpur is any one's dream. Beautiful campus sprawling over 1200 acres. Great hostels, mess and canteen. They serve one of the best foods with all the options available to accommodate the taste buds' requirements of students from different parts of India and at a very reasonable rate. Every room for us was a single seater with a 100 MBPS LAN connectivity. Separate music room for each hostel, superb sports facilities. 'Impressions' was PG's annual cultural fest and was held at a grand level. Placements for MBA is very good with very highly qualified faculty members. For my batch, we achieved 100% placements with an average salary close to 10LPA.

IIT, Kanpur was one of the best parts of my life. I learned a lot after going to IIT. The college life in general was awesome too.

Overall it was a perfect mixture of learning and fun.

See, I am not that into love with engineering, and thus sometimes felt and still feel if I have not done justice to 4 yrs of my life. Therefore I dont exactly love my college either. Nevertheless I have maintained a relatively top level CGPA, so dont think of me(I dont care otherwise too) as a loser on a rant here :-) . Objectively analysing, the college is quite good, certainly among the very best in India and arguably the best in terms of facilities provided to students. Apart from the first two yrs, where you live in a little bit cramped up space, you get to have a single room for the rest of your stay. Sports facilities are again top notch with the recent invitee Sanath Jayasuria praising the same. Other entertainment centres include a good Auditorium, an open air theatre, eateries. Lots of cultural clubs - dance , music , book, quiz, drama to name a few and of course the technical ones too - never went there! Faculty is good enough - depends on the students judging them. Lab facilities and equipments are very well maintained. The technical and cultural festivals (heard of Antaragni?) are really big affairs. Industry exposure is definitely lesser than the ones in Mumbai and Delhi- Kanpur infrastructure and roads, you know.

Excellent academics, infrastructure and culture at IIT K.

College life : I would say there are very few colleges where you get this much freedom. You are responsible for whatever you want to do. The social environment encourages excellence. No surprises to see so many students doing exceptionally well internationally in a variety of areas including academics, sports, debates and more. Infrastructure : it has great spacious classes. Labs that are high quality and many. You never will have a short of ingra for any of your endeavours, whether it be a research idea or activities. Faculty : a mixture of good and bad teachers, but overall they are better than most of the places in India. In terms of research, most of the faculty are of international standards, and some are doing very well.

At IIT, you see a male dominated world. Be it any campus within the country, 99% of the students are boys. Well, we’re talking about the top engineering institute in India. Undoubtedly, the reputation of the college is primarily because of its excellent teaching staff.Anataragini', the cultural festival, is held in the month of October while 'Techkriti', annual festival, takes place in early February
