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.

When I first came here, I knew IIT Kharagpur is one of the best engineering colleges in our country. But after becoming part of it, I understood why it is so. Everything about this college is top notch. Faculty, campus, labs, environment and other things which are important in one's college life is really good. Hall culture here is something different from other colleges. It takes out the best qualities of a student and polishes it even further. It really is one of the best Engineering colleges in India.

It is an amazing experience to study at IIT Kharagpur

Posted on 04 Jun' 17 by sambaran ghosal
Batch of 2020 | B.Tech and M.Tech Mechanical Engineering
IIT Kharagpur has a 2200 acre campus with very well designed academic classroom complexes and laboratories with full air conditioning systems in classrooms to have a comfortable academic interaction even during extreme summer conditions. Our college often hosts workshops and training sessions related to current market requirements by various big companies and also organises guest lectures by prestigious companies like Microsoft ( Code Fun Do ) , Google , TATA and countless others. The student crowd at IIT Kharagpur is very helpful and cooperating and despite of studies we manage to have a good time among ourselves in canteens and other places of hangouts. We have 2 of the best fests ( KSHITIJ and SPRING FEST ) which bring along them loads of fun and performances by biggest artists and also amazing workshops and Guest lectures. Each hostel is accomodated with high speed WI-FI and lan ports with very high internet speed and no restriction to how much internet you want to use. There are gymnasium rooms , music rooms and libraries at each and every hostel. We also have inter hall events which add to the quality of student interaction , team work and coordination between juniors and seniors. We also have a traditional way of celebrating Diwali by making huge sculptures out of only diyas which we call "ILLUMINATION". Each and every hall participates in this. Some of the professors here are very good. They have immense knowledge of the subject and are very helpful to us. They take extra steps to clear doubts and make us solve some very good problems which are very helpful in clearing the concepts. They also send us useful material which are related to studies and have some real life applications to it. Some professors also show us interesting videos related to the concepts that are taught in class. The fee structure is also optimised according to MHRD guidelines.

Home away from home

Batch of 2019 | B.Tech Chemical Engineering
My experience at IIT Kharagpur is as I wrote home away from home. The infrastructure at IIT Kharagpur is as I explained self sufficient as a college. GENERAL FUNDAE You know whats the best thing about being in IITKGP? its the life you get to live here... here you get to live your life your way. You get such an amount of free time that you can neither imagine nor manage it... People who come here think that their job is done and they are secured now... but that's not the reality. You have just reached a checkpoint , you have a long way to go. This is just the beginning of the long journey that you have to travel. Most of the people who come in here are so astonished by the lifestyle here that they spend their whole first year enjoying it. People don't realize, what they are getting is a life changing opportunity. These are some categories that usually people fall into •First are the maggus Maggu is a stereotypical reference to any person who studies a lot. The ones with a very bad reputation of always studying. But that just a saying you should ignore all these. Actually many of these guys made DepC (Dept. Change). It's a very courageous step taken by few souls who study for good grades/self satisfaction. It is neither Good nor bad to be a MAGGU. All you must know is to prioritize the things in your life and do the right thing at the right time. That includes many things other than just acads, you should transform yourself into a person with more than just knowledge to show, you should develop that attitude of an IITian. But anyways, you aint gonna get placement in google or facebook without your acads, thats the only thing thats gonna help you at the time of placements. •Second are 'typical' society guys A society is a group of people related to each other through persistent relations. They stay with their respective societies and devote all their time(Non Academic Time) in it. They generate great interest in their work and give their best to it. They manage big level fests, seminars, etc. Which makes them passionate about their work. You can say that they are the people who gain the most experience of all people with the help of seniors. They get a lot of help from the seniors. So being in a society will help you develop your social and cultural skills. As a personal suggestion, you aint gonna face a person after speaking ill about his/her society. Thats the tempo of society guys. •Third are the explorers The ones who try and explore every possible field of profession or anything that they might be interested in. These are the people who havent yet known what interests them, the biggest reason for this is that they didnt go for society interviews or never tried to learn something about them. Believe me when i say that you will always find a society fit for you if you genuinely try to explore yourself, at the right time ofcourse. Well, its not necesary to be in a society. The explorers visit all the workshops and extra lectures given by different societies on business, entrepreneurship, finance, programming and lots more. They try to get into every field and see where they fit. •Fourth are the vellas Those who just enjoy their peaceful life. They don’t attend a lot of lectures, just use up the free internet and DC++… Frankly speaking, they just let a golden opportunity slip through their hands by wasting their time. You would never want to be in this category, because its very peaceful inside IIT but the world outside in not so easygoing and you have to face it after some years. These people face the toughest time after passing out as they didnt gain anything. There are only a very few in this category but once in a while every one goes to this phase where he wants to one of them and enjoy life without any work and tension. But you should remember, hardship is the only way to success. What you need to do is be a combination of all the above. Not like its very tough to be an all-rounder, its all about time management. The best part of the day is the 'night' in kgp… when people come out on the roads and enjoy the silence on the streets. You cannot distinguish the day and night in here. Sleep has nothing to with the night. You can do whatever you want to whenever you want to. The best thing about b eing in a hostel is FREEDOM… you don’t need permissions to party, neither do you need any occasion for it… just gather some guys, some edibles, a woofer and speaker, close the doors and there you go!!!! There is no restrictions of time in hostels(for boys) and for the campus, you can get out before 11 and come back whenever you want. Well you don't need to get out of the campus very much. Campus is large enough and has all the things you might need. One of the best thing is the LAN and WIFI that is provided to you. Especially when it is used for gaming, the environment is so very cool and loud when a group sits in a room connected and playing counter strike. Utilizing ur Time After so many things we have already told you, you would hv pretty decent idea of what you should do. But if you do all that, you must be an ideal student. And their is no such thing like ideality in reality. So here we'll again try tell you what actually you can do and you should do. Let's start with some productive work. What you can do in your spare time at your room is learn something. But what?? These are some things which can be useful for you : Photoshop - learn photoshop, illustrator, corel draw and other such software. They can be very useful and many societies ask for them for design teams Web Designing - It includes HTML, CSS, JavaScript and php. Their knowledge comes very handy. Coding languages - C, C++, python, C#, java or anything you like. You can easily learn these things. Video tutorials and books of everything are available on DC. You don't have to watch them as if you are studying. Just watch them for fun n time pass, and in no time you'll be a master. You will definitely waste your time anyway , so better waste it at right thing. Following are some recommended TV series that you must watch(only personal experience, their can be many more that you may like). Fisrt one on the list is what I watched last. Game of Thrones. It is worth its fame. Undoubtedly the best F.R.I.E.N.D.S . Ultimate comedy show. Tired of everyday's hush-hush, go watch friends. It will definitely change ur mood. I amSherlocked. It doesn't need any description. A must watch for everyone Breaking Bad -story is great but I think its a bit slow The 100 Prison Break Vampire Diaries You can always google for more There are always 2 types of people , Anime lovers or haters. Either type, these are some must watch animes, after watching them you will definitely became lover. Death Note Code Geass Another All time favourite - Naruto Full metal Alchemist, brotherhood DBZ There are so many things you will want to do, but there'll be no time. 24hrs of the day are same for everyone, it just depends on you how you spend your time.

A stark contrast to the (relative) morbidity of JEE

Posted on 28 May' 17 by Artemis Fowl
Batch of 2019 | B.Tech Aerospace Engineering
IIT KGP boasts an extensive campus with enough space for each of the ten thousand something people who call it their own. With such a large population, it's hard to consider it as just another college; IIT KGP is more like a (nearly) self-sufficient village. However, numbers do not mean everything, because the vast majority of the community is male, straight, and speaks Hindi as their preferred language. The last characteristic is shared by most of the office staff as well, which makes bureaucratic interactions even more difficult than it needs to be. Entrepreneurship is given priority over research. The lab classes are not primarily purposed to cultivate scientific curiosity in students; this makes it difficult for people who intend to do industrial work and/or higher studies to follow their passion. However, if you want to be an entrepreneur, you have come to the right place. The huge network of alumni will definitely help you in your endeavors. Students enjoy their fundamental right to privacy and freedom of movement. There is no late night curfew (except for girls, the details of which I do not know about), and the moral policing exists barely. Hostels (called Halls within IIT KGP) are, at best, representative of the people who live in them, and not of the college itself. There are methods for addressing Hall-related complaints and grievances, and their resolution is satisfactory, but not commendable. Freshers are not bullied or picked on in the least. However, it is not the case for sophomores, as senior students tend to coax, guilt, threaten or blackmail them into doing activities for several Inter-Hall events and "prove their loyalty" to the respective Halls. The good news is that this happens only in a select few Halls, and the punishments are severe to those students against whom ragging is reported. Professors are, as in any institution, diverse in their skills. Some may be better at research, and some at teaching. One thing that the college could improve on, is in providing a better platform to ensure that the professors listen to the feedback given by the students. Finally, in terms of financial affordability, fees are at par with other IITs. A point of interest about life within the campus is that, the ratio of the cost of living to the standard of living is surprisingly low.

As the title itself gives a sign of journey where many dreamers came and lead to way better life. IIT Kharagpur is best because of its versatility.

The biggest of all even bigger than a university with 2200 acres of campus. IIT Kharagpur is a path to many of the dreams. The infrastructure, the classroom complex is among the best environment for academics. One who spend the time here becomes a dreamer of things he or she want to achieve. The highly qualified faculty with a helpful staff makes academics to reach high levels. Apart from these, the journey starts with the bonding of student to student whether it is senior or a junior. A number of societies helps a student to build as a performer, a guide, a teacher and a mature hum being. Inter competition level is so high which makes the participants to enrich their knowledge as well as make them responsible. It much more than this, one can only feel the heat when enters to the journey of destinations and dreams.

infrastructure is one of the best in the country. state of the art lab facilities... advanced equipment... wind tunnels etc... AC classrooms... huge central library... there should be more opportunities and more importantly more guidances sessions by faculty/professional regarding application for internship programs etc. the faculty is as poor as any ordinary college... they are least interested in teaching and not even supportive/friendly... sanitary condition of the student accommodation and food is very poor the location or Kharagpur may not be a very pleasant experience for someone accustomed to city life however the IIT campus itself has a lot to offer...

It all starts with a beautiful luss green campus of 2200 acres ,with high class infrastructure and laboratories. Name any department and IIT Kharagpur has it. That's​ the best thing about kgp. Name any sports , name any social and technical activity and we have it, whether it may be in the form of knowledge or application. Apart from this one thing kgp has most is the student culture, for most students we learn most from our seniors than from the teachers . This thing make kgp different from other colleges of India. Proud to be a kgpian. Finally ending with lingo out kgp ka tempo high hai.....

After 2 years of being an undergraduate student at IIT Kharagpur, I completely understand why it is one of the best if not the best engineering college in India. The best part of IIT Kharagpur is its campus, it,s one the biggest in the country and is full of facilities. It has everything a student wants and thus I never had to go out of campus for anything. Hall culture here is something one cannot experience in any other college, it really pushes students to give their best in interhall competitions. Overall, life at IIT Kharagpur is something which I cannot really describe within 250 words, so crack JEE and come here yourself to experience how awesome is IIT Kharagpur.

It has its uniqueness by the way we learn, a number of societies which makes us not similar to machines but a gentleman. Believing in each and every person in the campus, we build a family culture. We help each other in every situation. Our sporting culture and fighting​ spirit comes​from the events like General Championship inter hall competition. Success comes out the way we do hardwork. The best among everyone. Our students represent our country in international level events. All we have is peace with enjoyment.

I feel that iit kharagpur provides all the opportunities to a student which help him excel and develop whole as a person and just not from the academic front. I love everything here the infrastructure and everything. The faculty are also well qualified. But the competition between students is very fierce and that's a thing common to all iits. But it develops and motivates you to move forward. The campus is just love. The outside city sucks by the way, but the campus is amazing. It's the best iit in my eyes.

IIT and its teaching go hand in hand. Definitely, the teaching is at a premium level professors having immense knowledge related to their subjects. The teachers at IIT KGP are highly experienced and completed their degree, PhD’s and what not from excellent American universities. The college has a facility for guest lectures as well. There are some professors who are extra ordinary and renowned while some are pretty ordinary and students find them just about tolerable. Most of the lectures are conducted in English, of which some are fluent, some aren’t. Least attendance criteria is 50% before deregisteration. The rules are mended as per the wish of the professor taking the course. Engineering is one of the streams in the world which is definitely male dominated. At IIT KGP, there are almost 90% boys, and one lacks to see a pretty face in the campus. Since, it’s a renowned and arguably the best institute in the country, students from all parts of India are seen here. Neither there is any race discrimination nor is a specific religion quota followed in the IIT. With such a varied crowd, understanding and maturity automatically follows. The students celebrate their college festivals on a large scale balancing their time with studies, placements and project work. Ragging is almost extinct now though there’ve been complains in the past. Roughly, one needs a rank of around 400-500 in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) to get a desired stream at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. If you’re willing to compromise a stream for the heck of joining IIT (which many would), then any ranks around 4000 will fetch you IIT KGP. Being the oldest IIT, it’s still not ranked no.1 among other IIT’s, due to the lack of its location. Any which ways, it’s still ranked 4th or 5th after the metros. The placements at IIT are pretty different from the thousands of engineering colleges in the country. You need to maintain a good CGPA (academic score roughly around 7 on 10), to get short listed by the great MNC’s that visit the college every year. Microsoft, Google, Facebook, YES Bank, Nomura, Facebook and hundred more companies recruit students from the IIT Kharagpur campus. There are no mass placements, hence the salary students are offered is roughly around 7-9 lakhs per annum. International offers reach upto 50-75 lakhs per annum depending upon the company and your performance. Students get on campus internship offers from excellent companies during their third year of engineering. They get paid around 35,000 per month (varies with the company). And yes, needless to mention, 100% placements. IIT is quite famous for the numerous festivals that are conducted round the year. There are various hostel events and games that are played on regular basis. Apart from the zillion national level competitions, there are two main festivals conducted round the year. Spring Fest, the cultural festival, is held in the month of January, where you see participation from all over India and live performance by great musicians and singers. 'Kshitij', the techno management festival, is held around February. There are active clubs for robotics, Formula SAE (making racing cars), Kraig (artificial intelligence), E-cell (entrepreneurship), Technology Transfer Group (TTG - it's links academic research to industry), etc. As the campus of IIT KGP is located in a rural area, hangouts and fun activities lower down on a good scale. Students find happiness in their canteen and mess. The canteen serves decent and edible food at a nominal rate. Most of the items are junk food and students sometimes crave for desi food. Each hostel has its own mess which are just like in any other typical college - average. It serves moderately hot lunch with less variety but always on time. Students aren’t completely satisfied thought they haven’t complained much about the same. There are a few night canteens, nescafe and small vendors for milk, momos etc present at night. There's a tech market within the campus, Prem Bazaar just outside the campus and Gol Bazaar about 30 minutes from campus. Government owned restaurant Tikka (within the campus), Chhedis, Veggies, Billo etc are popular restaurants. There is a CCD and a Baskin Robins outlet too. There are a couple of theatres in Kharagpur which students hardly care to explore. But one movie is screened every weekend in insti's very own Netaji auditorium.

College life at IIT kharagpur is very happening and, in a way ,healthly competetive.From early morning rush to academic buildings on our cycles to late night canteens, you enjoy every single moment of it.Although kharagpur city itself seems to be bit remote from country ,college provides with WIFI with 24 *7 internet access.If a student wants to placed he she will get placed but if he she wants a particular kind of job that may be difficult.Faculties of some departments are cool and understand the problem of students and help them in crisis.Despite being organised in January ,Spring fest and Kshitig bring warmth to the campus with so many students from different colleges enjoying the fests.

Exclusive pieces of infrastructure include a 24 hour open Digital Library, A lake and a Helipad. The exciting crowd is the main reason for an enjoyable college life. Placement levels for the college have gone down. Hostels provide all the basic and necessary facilities like a grocery shop, a stationary shop and also food shops which are open after midnight. College professors should be more friendly with the students. The hostel accommodation fee is affordable but the tuition fee has recently reached a new level which might not be affordable for some middle class family students.

Life @ IIT KGP

So IIT, Kharagpur or IITKGP is the oldest and biggest IIT of all. Spread in lush green environment of 2100 acres far from city noise. As you enter KGP's (from here i will refer IITKGP as KGP) Puri Gate, you will find yourself in a altogether different world. Will try to keep in points rather than paragraph- General pointers 1) It's a cycling campus. GO GREEN. Start paddling and go wherever you wanna go. 2) In evening you will find people engaged in sports. We have a swimming pool, football ground, basketball court, volleyball court, tennis court and so on. Generally Football ground, volleyball court, and table tennis is available also in hostels. 3) You will find all sorts of people, not only tech geeks but also excellent actors, sports person, future entrepreneur etc. Acads 1) Some of the exceptional professors I have met so far Prof. Pallab Dasgupta, CSE ,Prof Sandeep Saha, AE, Prof M.K. Laha, AE. 2) If you are interested in courses from other departments you can take them as additionals, won't effect your CGPA. 3) You can take minors also. further info google search UG regulations IITKGP Hostels 1) 20 in no and known as Hall of residence. 2) UG first years are allotted triple rooms, from 3rd year double or single room are allotted(depends on respective hall) 3) 24/7 wifi and LAN Connectivity. 4) Cleanliness is a bit less but if you say so to the person concerned it will be taken care of. Extra curricular activities 1) Sports facility as mentioned above. 2) Various Clubs and societies for people with different interests. some of them are like Business club, Robotix, Space technology etc. also there are various research groups under professors who develop different products, robots, automatic vehicles and take part in international competitions. 3) interhall competition for sports, technology and social and cultural are organised throughout the year. You can explore literally anything in KGP there are approx 10,000 students in KGP(UG+PG+RS) so you can think you will always get people of different inclination. Go talk to everyone. Don't be in your comfy silk Cocoon. KGP is affordable as you have MCM under which some people can get their tuition fee refunded. Also by Government rules the interest rates are also decreased for IIT students. Median package is 7-12 lacs highest you can get from news :-D. And many of the students have gone for higher studies to institute like MIT, UCLA etc. for MIT this year it was 8 i think(for Ph. D.)

the institute provides a vivid range of interesting fields to choose from before you finally land on something you truly love. Its the journey that moulds you while enjoying life at its best. It provides a supportive and constructive Hostel/Hall culture that nurtures you through every step. Apart from research facilities in various fields like robotics, automobile, exploration; it also lets you explore your social side via dramatics, music culture, sports and what not.

The life of a KGPian 'Peace hai'

The day i step into IIT Kgp, i feel the new enthusiastic environment. As we were rush to our allotted hostel, we rarely saw the academic buildings. The roads were very clean surrounded by trees and a number of Hostels, Innovation centre and a gymkahana where student activities takes place. Inside gymkhana we ran into a large pond having an island like place at the center of it surrounded with the beauty of park and seats to sit. As academics starts we get to know about the main building having the top most point of institute. There are many auditorium inside the building used for classes and lectures. There is also a library having many no of halls with so many collection of books. Then all of the surrounded area is taken by the departments of different course of Engineering. We have an auditorium where generally big events happen and it is also used as a movie theatre. We also have an open air theatre for live performance of guests. Then we have Takshshila building, where computer labs are situated and there is also a building called Sir J.C.Bose lab. Apart from this, we have sports ground for athletics, Football, cricket, hockey, basketball and also having a swimming pool for aquatics. All these grounds have their importance and used for many tournament purposes. Going towards hostels, we have 21 hostels, 16 for boys and 5 for girls. Our whole campus is biggest in the area with 2100 acres. For corporate exposures, Many events are organised like cultural fest 'Spring Fest' and Asia's largest techno-management fest 'Kshitiz'. Many companies sponsor most of the events. We have many societies governed by student body like KRSSG robosoccer society, Team Kart, Entrepreneur Cell, Alumni Cell, Robotics, SPATS and B-club. All are associated with many multinational companies. Our college life is so full fun because we as student body participate in so many activities not only in college level but also in international level. The biggest participation is due to General Championship we have in between Hostels which includes Sports, cultural and technology. Having a large number of events, we learn how to make bonds, how to vanish stage fear and how to build personality. Hostels are fulfilled with all the expectations, the environment between every student whether it is senior or junior is so peaceful. Mess food is bit of concern, taste of mom's food is always missed. But it has been improved semester by semester. In terms of placement offers, every year we get largest number of placements. Since exposure of companies and their interest is very much towards our students. Many students get pre-placement offer by companies like Google, ITC, Oracle, Facebook, Flipkart and so on. So regarding placement, there will never be deficiency of companies. Some exceptional professors, we have many of them. Our director had an exceptional performance in his academics. He is known for scoring 10 out of 10 CGPA in every semester. Students are simply a family. Everyone is helpful towards your problems. From senior to junior, all enjoy together, all learn together and serve together. Our college provides many scholarships to the students whose parents income is less. There is also relaxation of tution fees for the students who comes from minority classes. So, there is no problem of getting non-affordable study. As a student of IIT KGP, i proudly says that i have joined the best college.
