    Have a question related to IIT Patna ?

    Which is better IIT Patna Civil Engineering or IIT Indore Metallurgy and Metarial Science ?

    Dear Aspirant, See IIT Patna has higher ranking. Median Salary of IIT Patna is 14 lakhs. IIT Patna is one of India's best engineering colleges, with exceptionally excellent faculty standards. The college has excellent placement standards, which is one of the reasons I chose IIT Patna.
    IT Patna B Tech Placement 2022. Average Salary for CSE is 38.79 LPA
    IIT Placements 2022 set new highs for Batch 2022, Job offers in Crores.
    Job Offers in Crores continues 2.5 Crore offered at IIT Guwahati.
    NIT B Tech Placements 2022. Highest Salary 1.8 Cr.
    IIT Jammu Placement 2022. Average Salary for CSE is 18 LPA.
    IIT Patna Placements 2022: Highest Package: INR 61.3 LPA & Average Package: INR 26.9 LPA.
    IIT Indore was ranked 401-500 in the world by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings of 2021, 78 in Asia and 79 among emerging economies. In India, it was ranked 10 among engineering colleges by the National Institutional Ranking Framework in 2020. In terms of infra, IIT BHU is still ahead of IIT Indore. The machines, etc are old in the old departments such as mechanical, etc. However, departments like CSE and Mathematics have brand new buildings, computers, etc.  In mechanical and civil engineering branches, core placements chances are very low, but there are high chances for non-core placements. However, CS and electrical students have good placements, and metallurgy and material science students also have good chances to get placed better. The institute has successfully placed 94.5% of BTech and 57.4% of MTech students during the IIT Indore placement 2022.

    I have performed bad in Mathematics Board Exam but my overall percentage is around 80%, will I still be able to get into an IIT? P.S. The reason I perform this bad is due to Covid Virus so please be generous.

    HELLO

    To be honest, 80 is an amazing score but it does not guarantee your seat into IITs. For getting into an IIT, you need to score good in JEE mains and advance. Admissions into IITs is only based on that. All the best !

    Which IIT is best for CSE?? IIT GUWAHATI, IIT HYDERABAD OR IIT PATNA. Note:- I don't care about package. I am looking for facilities provided by college, infrastructure alumni network etc.

    Hello,

    Undoubtedly IIT Guwahati is a better among the three IITs because it is considered to be among the top 7-8 IITs. So, the cut off for cse branch IIT Guwahati is also under 600-700 so you need to score really good to get the cse branch over there.

    The infrastructure and view of IIT Guwahati is just amazing you will enjoy the campus life. I can be rest assured of that.

    But the other IITs are not so good with computer science branch and are not considered to be among the top ones. IIT Patna is comparatively a newer IIT.
