Overall It's Amazing , but in some situation it is horrible

At First college life is appreciatable and i am enjoying it very well , let me first start with hostel life. the infrastuctures in many hostels are good mean really really nice and there are some old hostel in which infrastucture is not good but they are working on it .and the life in the kgp hostel can't be explain in words it really awesome .The facilities provided by hostel are also well , now we have everything we want in hostel . let talk about main our faculty , As all we know IITs have best faculties , some of them are excellent , a few worst but I expericene both type of professer , we say that worse but actually there the best who think about you in own life , because every student matters.In this real world we must experience bad time also because of yourself , friend , professor , senior and anybody .And we start blaming the other person who u think ruined your life but actually the we are living in IIT kharagpur gave everybody a culture that is "God is busy , May I help you" and you always have aleast a person who will help you in any problem any means Any whether its your personal or professional for that you may be approch a specific person or not as your wish . The student crowd in college is huge , I cannot write in number because they are family and we know families are not countable . There we go second last topic placement , placement are only depends upon a student. Its simple they wants CGPA , but also they are not want an engineer At first they want a good person. placement in kharagpur is great , but some of students are not happy with that because its simple they dont have CGPA greater than 7 .But Any IITian is capable of doing any impossible thing to possible. so many student start there alternate path for achieving success. Now every student in IIT kgp are became successful in his/her life because they make there own path. Now every IIT is affordable , you get a education loan and many chances to good scholarship , So i dont think so , may be its unaffordable for some body but you get a right path to tackle that problem , don't lose hope buddy .

A great environment for a student to give efforts in and achieve what you want. Numerous opportunities to follow your dreams. A large number of courses are offered from engineering branches to research field, from financial to law schools. College culture is so impressive for the students to learn and become an expert. 2200 acres of campus with so many societies which fulfil the interest of the students. Some of them are Robotics, Spats, TDS, TLS, Entrepreneur Cell and many more which are governed by the student community. General Championship held every year between the hostels brings a large number of participants with enthusiasm. This is really a great journey for the students to become professional and achieve what they want. Here the creative dreams comes alive and make a person who serve with the best works.

About College:

The Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur (IIT- Kharagpur), like the other older IITs has become synonymous with excellence. It is often remarked how in India, kids hear more about the IITs when they are growing up, than about their cousins, such is the rush towards reaching this very top. Lakhs of students from all over the country enrol themselves over countless hours of coaching classes in order to secure a seat among these IITs. Within this elite list of institutions, there is a super- elite sub- group known as the original IITs, which is a group of the 7 original ones which are – Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kharagpur, Kanpur, Guwahati and Roorkee. 

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. All this effort means that the acceptance rate is miniscule, standing at around 0.5% for IIT- Kharagpur, in stark contrast to global luminaries such as MIT, Stanford or UC Berkeley standing at 7.5%, 4.8% and 17.5% respectively. 

Within the IIT fraternity, the one at Kharagpur is in fact the oldest having been inaugurated in 1950 right after independence. The first few months, the institute was located in Calcutta before being shifted to the town of Kharagpur nearby within the state of West Bengal itself. It was established along the lines of the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). The campus is fully residential with a total area of 1200 acres. The hostels here are all named after prominent personalities. Plenty of courses are taught here including the flagship 4- year B. Tech with a number of different specializations. There is also a 5- year B. Arch. Plus integrated and dual UG-PG degrees. There is even an MBA and a joint M. Sc.- PhD. programme. The academics is divided into several departments looking after the teaching and research from within their areas of expertise. These departments are in – Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology, Agricultural & Food Engineering, Architecture & Regional Planning, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Mining Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Electrical Communications Engineering, Physics, Metallurgical & Materials Engineering and Ocean Engineering & Naval Architecture. Realizing its importance over the coming years, the IIT- KGP even has a specialized Humanities and Social Sciences wing. 

In addition to the academic departments, there even exist some specialized centres which look into specific areas of research and industry-academia interface. There are centres for – Excellence in Robotics, Educational Technology, Computational & Data Sciences, Cyrogenic Energy, Materials Science, Steel Technology, Rural Development, Rubber Technology, Bioenergy, Theoretical Studies, Artificial Intelligence, Advanced Technology Development and for Re- Water Research. Some specialized schools also exist within the IIT- KGP to look into broader areas to impact. Schools exist for – Engineering Entrepreneurship, Medical Science & Technology, Management, Quality & Reliability, Intellectual Property Law, Infrastructure Design & Management, Energy Science & Engineering, Environmental Science & Engineering, Telecommunication and for Nano Science & Technology. A lot of these schools or specialized centres are named after important personalities who have contributed towards the area or for the institute. 

The IIT- KGP is now recognized as one of the Institute of Eminence (IoE) by the Government of India. It has also featured highly across national as well as international rankings, being placed 4th among engineering colleges by the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework). It has also been ranked 3rd within the category by The Week and Outlook. The NIRF even placed the IIT- KGP at 5th overall. The highly- acclaimed QS World University Rankings placed it on rank 308 worldwide, 62nd in Asia and 24th among the BRICS nations. The Times Higher Education University Rankings meanwhile placed it 60th in Asia. 

 As the IIT Kharagpur has been associated with excellence for so long, placements have likewise been among the very best in the country. In 2018, there were a total of 258 companies participating for the 1839 students enrolled in the various courses. Core engineering, finance, analytics, IT, higher education and e-commerce were the principal recruiting profiles. Quantiphi and Intel made the maximum number of offers at 34 and 33 respectively. Some of the other top recruiters included EXL, Goldman Sachs, Qualcomm, Citibank, Barclays, SAP Labs, PwC and Mercedes.
