Questions related to IIT Palakkad
i got iit palakkad in 2020 but i withdrawal the seat to get better college, In withdrawal application unfortunately, i choose no for attempting for jee 2021 , can i write jee 2021 please tell me
There is no such restriction on you even if you fill a withdrawal form and claim to not reappear for the exam next year as such a rule would be outright preposterous and arbitrary. As long as you fulfil the rest of the eligibility criteria for JEE mains 2021, you are good to go.
here is a link for eligibility details,
best of luck
What is the highest package for EE students in IIT Palakkad?
See according to the online data available on placements , the domestic highest package was Rs. 21 lPA CTC while the average package was of Rs. 9.5 LPA CTC.
Also the placement rate as well as package have raised sufficiently in 2020 compared to 2019.
**There are no branch specific data available online. So you can entitle the average salary as the minimum you can get and the highest as the maxima.
I hope my answer helps. All the very best for your future endeavors!
which one is better, IIT Dhanbad ECE or IIT PALAKKAD ECE??
dineshburuboyina2575 , I think IIT Dhanbad is best for ECE because I think Electronics and communication engineering is not in IIT Palakkad there is Electrical Engineering.
And the IIT Dhanbad is already best for other branch also.
Hope it will be helpful for you :)
How is CS at IIT Palakkad in terms of Faculty?
Hope you're doing well.
The faculty members are really helpful and approachable at IIT, Palakkad. Almost all of them are phD holders, providing excellent learning to students. They focus more and more on the practical learning of the students, which is very necessary in professional courses like Bachelor of technology. There are guest lectures as well. They call the finest professors for this. They impart knowledge in the computer science field to the students. Interactive sessions are also held. For further assistance, you may follow the link provided below:
either joining civil engineering in IIT bubaneshwar is better or joining ECE in IIT Palakkad is better
While looking at the two colleges, IIT Bhubaneshwar is the older and more well established campus than IIT Palakkad. It has better facilities and placement records. IIT Palakkad is relatively new and is currently establishing its prime.
Also, no matter which campus you study in, if you are not interested in the subject or course, the four years of B Tech life won't worth it. So, idealise your choice by analysing your interest in civil engineering and electronics and communication. Choose which is best for you.
Hope this was helpful

The Chandra High performance computing cluster (HPC) provides a powerful computing platform for research in engineering and physical sciences. This system has been operational since June 2017. The HPC consists of 64 compute nodes, each with a dual 12-core Intel processor. Each core runs at 2.2 GHz and has 4 GB of RAM per core. The HPC is one of the first systems in India to use a 100 Gbps high-speed OmniPath interconnect from Intel. The system provides about 50 TFlops of computing power. Chandra also accesses 100 TB of disk space set up as a parallel file system running Lustre from Intel. The HPC is used by faculty, research staff and students at IIT Palakkad to investigate complex research problems in science and engineering. Some of the problems currently being studied are : 1. Understanding and designing materials with novel physical properties by performing atomistic quantum mechanical simulations. 2. Design of nanoscale transistors for next-generation electronic applications. 3. Design of novel bio-molecules with applications in medicine. 5. Design of large structures such as bridges and buildings. 6. Performing computational fluid dynamic simulations 7. Understanding the process of heat transfer in complex systems such as engines. 8. Solving non-equilibrium dynamics in quantum Hamiltonians
