College Infrastructure
All the facilities are just excellent here. It is one of the those oldest IITs, so the college building is just astonishing. The campus is something that a student dreams of. WiFi is also available in hostels but the speed sometimes is not up-to the mark. Labs are well-equipped with latest equipment and is also well-maintained.
Academics
Most of the professors here are highly experienced and also well-qualified. Also they are easily approachable & very supportive as well. also, My curriculum is updated according to the recent changes in the course. The teaching makes us job-ready but additional skills should be developed by a student on his/her own.
Placements
The placements are pretty excellent. The placement rate is also very good. Internships are also provided before the placement drive in order to provide professional environment to a student before he/she faces the actual industry.
Value-for-money
My fee per year costs around INR 1 lac. I think, it is value-for-money, as the placements are also very good. Also, the facilities provided are quite satisfying. I think you'll never feel that your money is not giving you the desired output.
Campus Life
Campus life is the best of them all. If you find a good company, then trust me these 4-5 years at the college are going to be something you'll miss for your whole life. The campus is built in a huge 2100 acres. The campus is very clean and it attracts one's eye because of the tress planted everywhere alongside the college path which seems very pleasant.
Anything Else
These years at IIT Kharagpur are the best of my life. I'm missing my college campus which is currently closed due to COVID-19 pandemic. The college life is very good & one will enjoy it from his/her 1st day at college to the last day of college.

College Infrastructure
All the facilities are quite upto the mark. Infrastructure is one of the best across India. Only WiFi connectivity is weak in some parts of the campus, but that is not much of an issue as WiFi and LAN availability in hostels are good.
Academics
Most of the professors are highly qualified and at the same time, very friendly and easily approachable for any help regarding projects or academics. But again there are few of them who never reply to mails and are not easily approachable and do not answer to queries.
Placements
The placements statistics is one of the best across India here, there are over 1000 offers every year in just 6-7 days during placement season in December. The highest package, as most people know is generally INR 1crore+ for some software job abroad.
Value-for-money
For those not availing any scholarship, the fees per year is quite a lot, as the tuition fees is INR 1lakh per semester. With this much to pay, one may always have in mind that the facilities we are getting is somewhat short of the money's worth. Nevertheless, all the facilities are satisfactory.
Campus Life
Campus Life is quite exciting, and during the Covid-19 induced lockdown, everyone is missing the campus life badly. With a peer group consisting of top minds of India, and experiencing the facilities in campus with friends is a jolly experience.

The infrastructure is good. The halls of residence are well maintained although there are many issues with the food in many halls but overall it's good. Labs are equipped and the instruments are well maintained.
Academics
In my one year experience, academics didn't quite match with the expectations I had but it's pretty nice. It could be better. If I tell you my experience then it's overall nice some professors are really good and some could really get on your nerves. As of now I can say just that, I have to explore it myself
Placements
If you work hard and don't lose your focus then J'm sure you can grab a good package doesn't matter if it is in your core branch or any non core. I haven't done much research in this matter but many people talk about how good these placements are.
Value-for-money
The fees per semester is around 1.5 lakh which is very high when you consider that it is a premium and government run instituition. What's the point taxes and clearing JEE if we have to give such high fees.
Campus Life
If you find the right people, believe me this could be the best place you spend your 4 or 5 years. This is the place where you can have fun and learn a lot. There are places you could go inside the campus because the campus covers a huge land of 2300 acres and the greenery there is the best thing.

College Infrastructure
We have got some best design labs and everything in order perform research for PHD. Living places are clean and maintainance is too good. Food is hygienic but not tasty but there are lot of restaurants to provide for.
Academics
Yes, one of the most senior faculty are present in the campus. And many technical assistants are present to take care of the individuals. The curriculum includes all the courses necessary for a B.Tech course
Placements
This year, there were best placements among all IIT's with 5 students above 1 cr. And there were 100% placements. And those students were from various depts including cs, ec and mech and even agriculture. Average packages were above 50 lakhs for ec and around 50 for cs and mnc.
Value-for-money
Were are asked to pay around 2.2 lakes per year. And it, acc. to me, is very reasonable for one of top engineering college, as it is very less when compared to the education and facilities provided to us.
Campus Life
This is the best life I am having right now. It is a biggest campus among all IIT'S and oldest.....and perhaps one of the biggest among India. With such a big campus and greenery....it is best, I feel. Its location is not so developed but, we can get every facility needed.

The college has Career Development Centre (CDC) to look after all the work associated with internship and placement.
Value-for-money
The fee of the course is around 1 lac per annum, including tution fee, accomodation and mess charges. I feel that the money is worthy as the institute provide quality education with all necessary services. Also, master student get stipend of 12400/- per month so its worthy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

IIT Kharagpur is the oldest among all the IITs and this spans over an area of 2100 acres. Sounds freaking awesome. Huh? The awesome drives of green will mesmerize you as you will fall in love once you step in the campus. The hostel life (We call it hall of residence though!) with your beloved people will make your life worth living. Apart from that the exposure you will get here will help you to get placed in good companies and dream universities So if you are getting an opportunity to be a part of this magnificent family go for it and thank me later. :)

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. It encourage student to learn the things which develops their identity, a unique identity which a student has. The resources for everything like studies, researching, societies like spats, robotics, dramatics and many more are available here for a full development of a student to a gentlemen. Student community here is the source by which every one lead towards success. All i have to say is best among all colleges having 2200 acres of campus offers a lot of courses to establish to develop a student on its own.

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.

The student culture, student faculty relations, student staff relations, helps one to become more down to earth inturn nouishing students mind for findinng self. IIT Kharagpur never let you feel alone.It has Stunning Botanical diversity. You will have a great bird watching here. Almost everyone here uses bicycle, institute has provided seperate bicycle path along with pathways for pedestrians and roads for vehicals. Supportive Faculty, Ask for guidance and they will give you time solve ur doubts you can also talk about your personel problems. Here are many Societies, many research groups where you can contribute and work on for great technological innovations. Innumerable Research project opportunities. General Championship ( Inter hall Competitions) you can flourish your skill in your favourite sports here.DC++, wifi all over the campus, and satisfying data speed is all needed for a student. The Love for IIT KGP will never fade.

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.

A dream college for many students. Whether it is elated to culture, academics, environment, technology or sporting culture, IIT KGP is way above all and stands out of the crowd. 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.
