CSE department is doing very well. The coding culture here is very well established and is sure to become better in coming years. It surely will make it to the Tier-1 colleges in coming years. Infrastructure is also getting developed at a very good pace.

Coming to the top

The main campus is coming up at great pace. It has a lot of open space, and you are free to move around, one is not forced into a shell. The weather here is such that you won't need an air-conditioner. Temperature here is generally 7-8 degrees less than Delhi, so fan at most will be needed. Computer labs and National Knowledge Network (NKN) rooms are air-conditioned by the way. Transient hostels are 2, 3 and 4 seater while at main campus, they are 2-seater and totally comfortable. Wi-fi is one of the best facilities available with an average speed of 2Mbps. Library and laboratories are equipped according to requirements and updated every now and then.

Though a new college, Great placement and Faculty for CSE

Posted on 20 Aug' 16 by Varra siva chetan reddy

The faculty for non Computer Science branches is decent but none of them are experienced. The Infrastructure and the Climate are simply amazing. When it comes to placement it helps if you have done at least some of the basic courses in CSE. Many recruiters who visit the campus expect the basics in CSE and Puzzles in general.

which is better among iit indore / iit mandi / iit ropar

Gehna Chawla 16th Sep, 2019


According to me between these 3 institutes, i can rate them as :

1. IIT Indore

2. IIT Mandi

3. IIT ropar

Because, IIT Indore has the lowest fees among these and has the lowest cut off as well.

Indore has the highest package record among these three till now which is 28 lakhs.

the teaching can differ according to the courses you choose.

Thankyou, i hope it helps, feel free to approach for further queries.


My gate 2019 score is 644 in EE (GEN). Is i m get iit mandi in spot round ?

HARDIK JOSHI 12th Aug, 2019

Bro it will be difficult for you to get IIT by this score even in spot round counselling. But chances are there and you can also other options too.

And note that 644 is not a bad rank so chances are there. 

All the best for your future

Hope for the best. 


Which college is Good for electrical : IIT Mandi or IIT Ropar

Monika Sundar 21st Jul, 2019


                          it's tough to decide. Both are equally beautiful.

Proximity to the city and other modern facilities, Ropar certainly has an upper hand. Also, given that Chandigarh is less than one hour’s distance, people may prefer ropar over mandi. As with academics, I do not see any difference. Both the institutes' house excellent faculty.



How is iit mandi Cs interms of campus placements and college life

Monika Sundar 20th Jul, 2019

Hi Navya Boinpally,

                     Compared to most of the private colleges there is a much free college life in IITs as a general. A CS branch in IIT Mandi is a pretty good seat and will help you start your career good. You may expect a salary of 60k to 1 l per month. 


Which is best iiit Hyderabad or IIT mandi



If you are keen on the IIT tag, go for IIT mandi. Even  though it is new, it is  still an "IIT". Passing out from IIT itself  labels you as one of the top brains in the country. You become a "BRAND" regardless of how new or old the IIT is. Secondly don't be influenced by the current reviews about the new IITs. By the time you graduate, conditions would be much better. After all there was a time when IIT-B, IIT-D and IIT-KGP were new.

I completely agree that IIIT-H has more value in the industry, but personal satisfaction is also important. If the IIT tag gives you this satisfaction, without any doubt join IIT. 

But if market value of your institute gives you satisfaction, then join IIIT.

About College:

The Indian Institute of Technology in Mandi (IIT- Mandi) was established in 2009. During the Eleventh 5- year plan, it was realized that there was a requirement to extend the number of elite institutions in the country. This included the IITs as well whose number till then was miniscule. Thus, 8 new IITs were established, while IT-BHU was upgraded to the IIT status. These new IITs have over a period of time gained in reputation and are fast closing the gap on the top incumbents. Lakhs of students from all over the country enrol themselves over countless hours of coaching classes in order to secure a seat at the IITs. These new IITs are in – Bhubaneshwar, Rupnagar, Gandhinagar, Hyderabad, Indore, Jodhpur, Patna and Mandi. A further few IITs have opened up later, known popularly as the ‘Baby IITs’. 

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. Admissions to the master’s level programmes is via the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) for B. Tech and via the JAM for its MSc. 

The IIT- Mandi found the IIT- Roorkee as its mentor in its early days. During the initial days, the classes were held at a makeshift location, but now part of its 565- acre permanent campus has been built. The south campus of this is now fully functional. Classes are held for various courses, including the B. Tech, M. Tech, M Sc., as well as integrated, dual and doctoral programmes. The academics is administered by the different schools within the campus, each with its own area of expertise. The schools are in the areas of – Basic Sciences, Engineering and Computer & Electrical Engineering. Realizing its importance over the coming years, the IIT- Madras even has a specialized Humanities and Social Sciences wing. 

IIT- Mandi has been extremely proactive when it comes to stitching foreign alliances. It presently has some for of agreements on collaboration with universities from several countries such as – Italy, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Denmark, Canada and USA. The biggest partner country in this endeavor of the IIT- Mandi is in fact Finland, where the collaboration is not with individual institutes but with the nodal body itself. This allows access to several universities such as – the University of Helsinki, University of Lapland, University of Tampere, University of Eastern Finland and Aalto University. Similarly, national alliances have also been stitched together for knowledge collaboration and student exchanges. Examples include- IIT-Madras, NIT-Hamirpur, NIT-Tiruchirappalli, CSIR-Palampur and MNIT-Jaipur. All this has helped the institute gain the 28th rank among engineering colleges in the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework). 

Life at IIT- Mandi though is a lot more than academics and research alone, as the institute believes in holistic development of the candidates. Taking advantage of the Himalayan location of the campus, the authorities have curated a botanical garden. It has more than 160 plant species which have been name-tagged so that students learn along the way. There is also a herbarium and a medicinal plant garden within that. Student societies have also been formed here at the IIT- Mandi. They are for – Sports, Technical, Cultural, Literary, Research and Academic. Besides, there are clubs to foster the co-curricular interests of the students. Some of the prominent ones are Kamand Prop, STAC, Shutter Bugs, Perception, Art Geeks and Robotronics for programming, astronomy, photography, videography, art and robotics respectively besides others. Students here are also very conscious about the practical mode of learning model. That is why the ISTP (Interactive Socio- Technical Practicum) has been curated to help all gain hands- on learning. The annual techno- cultural fest is known here as Exodia. 

The institute may not be too old, but it has already created a vibrant alumni network. The alumni committee is in constant touch with the past students, improving the connect on a constant basis. This has helped generate top- notch placements for the present batches. Some of the recent years’ recruiters include- Goldman Sachs, DE- Shaw, Wipro, Siemens, OYO Rooms, Infosys, Toppr, Code Nation, Delhivery, Accenture, Samsung, L&T, Reliance Jio, TCS, Vedant, Cognizant and Amazon among others.
