I am fourth year now, and the past three years of my life have been best for me. The Campus The campus is astonishing with James Thomson building (Main or Admin building) being a cherry top. Imagine living in a lush green environment with no pollution air. This is how living at this place is like. The college provides you with the best of sports facilities (Yes, the best. Believe me, I have been to other IITs for Inter-IIT.) and best of coaches. Recently, IITR just missed the Inter-IIT championship to IITK by merely half a point. Academics The place is IIT itself, so there shouldn't be any doubt on the quality of education this place provides. It has 21 academic departments covering engineering, applied sciences, humanities & social sciences, and management programmes, 3 academic centre, 1 centres of excellence, 4 academic service centres and 3 supporting units. Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, presented the Charter in November 1949 elevating the erstwhile college to the First Engineering University of Independent India, which lead to establishment of IITKGP. Co-curricular There are many co-curricular activity clubs for students. They are all supervised by a faculty adviser, who, at times might be a pain to deal with. But again it's about you skills and lets you learn how to tackle your annoying bosses in future. Most of the clubs are pro active and keep on organizing workshops and events for the student. One such club is the Cinema Club, which actively premiers recent Bollywood/Hollywood movies, thus solving your problems about theater. History The Roorkee College was established in 1847 AD as the First Engineering College in the British Empire. The College was renamed as The Thomason College of Civil Engineering in 1854. On the 21st September 2001, the University was declared an institute of national importance, by passing a bill in the parliament, changing its status from University of Roorkee to Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. Multi Activity Centre A new Multi Activity Centre has been opened in the campus for different activities. It has got auditoriums, OAT, Cinema Theater, Entertainment Block, Shops, Food Courts etc. So, you get a mall in campus itself, if not in the town. (Cinema Theater, Entertainment Block, Shops, Food Courts etc. are not presently available, but the space has been sanctioned, and we look forward to use them soon.) LAN I have seen may of my friends and mates posting about IITR providing the fastest LAN in all IITs. I don't know if its true or not, but a download speed or around 45 Mbps is sizzling fast. Also, all the hostels are now equiped with high speed LAN. Previously, only the newly made hostels (in 2008) had LAN, rest had poor WiFi connections. These WiFi connections were made way back in 2001, and had a decent speed considering that time. Politics Elections are held every year in the campus for the post ranging from wing senator, to college president.The format of elections have been changed, increasing the competition for candidates. You will get to taste the real politics during this time. And obviously, politics is dirty. 11 to 6 Restriction Their is a restriction on unmarried female students to rest in their hostels after 11 PM till 6 AM. It is because the campus entertains entrance of locals into the campus due to some documents signed at the establishment of institute (this is what we have known). It has been asked to girls, if the limit was further to be extended, and the majority denied. Due to this restriction, problem is faced during some campus event or festival, and you don't get to celebrate birthday with your friends from other hostels. Food Accepted. Food at IITR has not been very impressive. The first year hostel mess serves you with the worst food. But we also have very good messes like the Govind Bhawan mess. The campus has lately introduced non-veg diet in the mess. For which you have to buy coupon separately, and sit separately from the other vegetarian diet students. This becomes pretty awkward. Management Management of the campus it not the best you can find. But it is improving gradually. There is a way for things to get done inside the campus, equally lengthy as any other government office. But they are now making processes simpler at both ends. Again, you need to be smart and clever to get something new done in the campus. Conclusion Every place has its own pros and cons. Its your prospect how you deal with them. Me and all everyone I know at this campus is very proud to be a part of such a great Institute. In my personal opinion, there would be no regrets and you will have a great time if you get to get here. You will end up being a better human and having equally good friends.

Placements were good as always with 100% placements, but the highest and lowest salaries were not disclosed by the placement cell of IIT. Companies like Snapdeal, Bidgley, Microsoft, and Goldman Sachs visited the campus. Internships were also offered to almost all the students of the department. I have heard of a stipend of 2 lacs per month, which was the highest here. Infrastructure : We have Wi-Fi in all the common areas. And a LAN facility is available in the hostel rooms from 6 AM to 1 AM. But we have a limited use of Internet, which is 10GB per week. We have a full equipped 24hr working hospital. The labs and classrooms are world-class and fully air-conditioned with well-equipped features for projecting slides or playing the video lectures. The sports, games and co-curricular activities are given a lot of importance here, and the canteen food and hostel rooms are good. No-infrastructure related issues here. Faculty : The faculty members at IITD are very good. They are super knowledgeable and well-qualified. All kinds of teaching methods like projecting slides, playing videos and writing on boards are used. But, the industry exposure is little less than expected. The curriculum is very well-planned and is very useful for the overall development of a student. Other Details : The annual technical and cultural fests here are splendid. In the technical fest "Tryst", world class professors and technicians are invited. And the cultural fest "Rendezvous" is the biggest college fest in north India, with many stars like Vishal and Shekhar, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Arijit Singh performing in the fest in the last few years.

A great infrastructure with almost every single facility one can imagine on campus. A nearly 10 mbps internet 24x7, green lush campus and all sports facilities, this campus is a dreamland in itself. Coming to the placement, an IIT off course is known for its top notch placements, however, if low on grades one can end up at the other side of the barn. Industrial exposure is satisfactory one can say, as it has almost all facilities and instruments for each and every field of technology. The thing to notice though is, updating these techniques is still a problem and machinery mostly is worn out. Faculty quality disappoints. The teachers are researchers not teachers. They have vast field experience but doesn’t have the quality to explain it. With college facilities, the hostel life is amazing. There is environment for every single thing and opportunities to create new. The quality of the students is best in India kudos to the selection procedure. The hostels are clean and highly spacious with lawns and have all basic amenities. With rising fees year after year, it is slowly getting out of reach for lower middle class, but loans are helpful. As Roorkee is suburban area, not much outside campus to boast about. Overall, one can say that it’s a great place for one to become something of importance; the right direction has to be chosen. You have all the gear brah! Just score!

I belong to a metro city but still I don't find Roorkee as a boring place as such. Yes, at times you might be get a little annoyed by not having huge mall to go for shopping or hang-outs, but then you have almost all the brands available in the market, which is just next to the campus. The campus is astonishing with James Thomson building (Main or Admin building) being a cherry top. The college provides you with the best of sports facilities (Yes, the best)

Friends and people here are helpful and have good nature and that's what made my life so enjoyable here. Also the technical and cultural fest are also interesting and worthy to attend. Mess food is decent but no so good. Hostels rooms are big but being one of the oldest college the hostels need repairing as they can fall anytime. Regarding the money, here life is quite affordable as most of the facilities like internet and sport facilities are free of cost as government is paying for you.

Overall the college is awesome but industry exposure and faculty is not so good. For industry exposure more interactive sessions with the prominent industrialist and businessmen can help in this direction and for professor being open minded and helpful can help a lot to student. Placement are good but for the higher CGPA students. So, some reforms are required to help lower CGPA and other students who are not so intelligent to keep up with the competition. College life is awesome and the different groups for different activities are a real bliss. It will definitely change your life both personally and professionally.

As soon as you land in IIT Roorkee you will notice 2 things for sure one is Main building and other is Central library. Till now I have found the industry exposure is not so good but if some initiative is done by administration then it will definitely help the student. Late night studies and parties are the best things to enjoy in college. Placements can be better if more companies are allowed to enter in campus. Unlimited internet and good sanitation facilities are some provided by college hostel. Professors are good but interaction is less and they consider everyone intelligent so no elaboration is provided to any topic. Student crowd is best and life here is affordable as most of the facility is provided by government.

Academics in IIT Roorkee has an explicit structure. Everything here is properly arranged. The first years and third years have their lectures in the morning whereas the second and fourth years have lectures in the afternoon but again this may differ from branch to branch. The other half is for tutorials and practicals. Lectures and tutorials go on for an hour whereas practicals may be of 2/3 hrs. Exams are divided in two sets: Mid-sems and End-sems. It becomes excruciating during the exam time as it goes on one after the other with only sunday as a gap. Assignments are divided on a weekly basis and discussed in the tutorial classes. The quality of teaching here is above average on an overall basis. Some of the departments here have excellent teachers with a lot of experience. Most of the teachers prefer to teach on boards but some use projectors as well. Even an online moodle is used by some of them for conducting exams and stuff. There is also a system for the final evaluation of teachers at the end of every semester so that the quality of teachers is maintained. In a nutshell, the experience in learning here is cool and students are inspired to carry out there academics well.

Being in IIT Roorkee is one of the best thing which happened to me in my life. It add new dimension in my life as have really good exposure in almost every different field and at deep level. You name it and we have pros in that field and all the seniors are so generous and helpful you can learn that too. College campus also have some of the best hangout places and one wonderful library in which almost every book is available. Hill stations are also nearby so we can also go there in a weekend. Placement Scenario is very good many companies come and almost 95% placement ratio. Overall, it has been a wonderful journey for me. I would recommend you to talk to a person if you are opting for this college to get more insights.

Good Hostel facilities with one of the largest library and all the flush green campus are some worth mentioning that IIT Roorkee provide. For better industry exposure guest lecture exclusively for the branch should be there and some famous industrialist can be called. Super smart friends and the college's technical as well as cultural fest are some which make my college life enjoyable. Placements are not so good but overall it is decent but some more efforts to call startups and new companies will help in better results. Hostels have all the basic facilities like regular cleaning of bathroom and aqua-guards for pure drinking water, 24-hour internet (unlimited) and playing ground and indoor games room. Professors here are full of knowledge but they are not able to deliver it to the audience and mostly they are busy with their project and research work. So it's better if they teach like they are teaching a kid with no background knowledge and not like they are IITians so they must have knowledge of this. As we all know in IIT students came from different background, from rural to metro cities we have all types of students and thus we came to know each other's culture and thus have unity in diversity. Finally, if you are from family with low income but you are bright then IIT provides you with the scholarship which I think is one of the best thing it is doing and also the fees is affordable by the facilities they are providing you.

Awesome experience and lot of learning

Batch of 2020 | B.Tech Metallurgical and Materials Engineering
My experience at iitroorke is amazing. It has been just 7 months for me to join this prestigious institute after clearing jee advanced. These 7 months have been the best time of my life till now. I have enjoyed a lot in these months. Classes are regularly held according to the particular fixed time table. Mass bunks are not allowed. Level of academics here is good. Practicals and turorials along with lectures are held regularly. Apart from academics,IITR also excels in sports and other extra-curriculum. The sports facilities are one of the very best amongst all IITs with an Olympic size swimming pool,proper courts for baskey,volley and racquet sports(TT,Baddy,Squash &Tennis) as well as separate fields for cricket,football and hockey and a fantastic all-purpose gym.Alongwith sports,IITR has student groups dedicated to coding,web designing,dramatics,music,dance, quizzing,debating and many others.With such diverse fields of interest among the IITR students,one is sure to find his/her mojo. The best thing about IITR is its senior-junior culture.Anything you want to learn,any help you need your seniors will always be there for you.Anytime you meet a senior,you just have to ask for a chapo and you will definitely get it (Our Seniors never refuse,you just have to ask ).This culture is passed on from one batch to another ensuring that every student who is enthusiastic and dedicated enough always gets a chance to prosper and has the necessary help needed to suceed.cessary help needed to suceed.

The infrastructure of the college is very developed. The campus surroundings are quiet and healthy which is helpful for studies. There are some departments under development to accommodate a large number of students. The classrooms are well constructed, air conditioned and have space for about 150 students. It has a well-organized library with easy book search and reading facility. The college has an excellent hostel and sports facility. Placements are sure for students with average standard especially Mechanical, Computer Science, Electrical, Meteorology, Mining, Ceramic has high placement options. The faculty here is good and supportive, teachings are done with modern methods like power point presentation and practical views experimentation.

IIT Roorkee being one of the oldest institute was once most famous for civil engineering but now-a-days expanding its horizon in every field. Good infrastructural facility with well designed and furnished hostels. Ever green campus with a beautiful sports complex. Need to improve on some issues such as Placement, faculty student interaction, Industrial exposure, mess food. Student crowd is awesome and all together its an affordable college in all aspect.

Though college life, infrastructure, hostels, faculties etc. is better compared to other colleges but the placement scenario is not good. A student comes to IIT hoping for a good placement and leaves the campus happily if his wish is fulfilled. That is not the case here in this IIT.

Great college in but it lacks in placements due to the location. Many companies prefer to go to metropolitan cities for hiring which takes a hit at the placement scenario of the college. Great crowd to have fun and work. Cultural and sports fest are a real teat to watch. A lot of emphasis is given to sports facility. Enjoyed my 4 years thoroughly in this college!!

While compare to the others IITs , roorkee is having some funny rules which make student uncomfortable. worst part is having two different campus for one IIT, which will be so much irritation and making negative impact on the student beacuse both campuses are far differ from each other in terms of faculty, education, sports and other important activities.

Don't want it to end

Placements scenario could be better since companies don't come for finance profiles which imposes constrains on creativity and college culture. College life is simply dependent on which group you enter in your first year . Open learning is not there ,practical knowledge is not promoted much ,lacks industrial collaboration.

Posted on 19 Feb' 17 by Samruddha
Batch of 2017 | B.Tech Chemical Engineering
It is situated in the small city of history. Being one of the oldest colleges in India, it is a very quaint and beautiful campus. It became an IIT only recently before which it was known as the University of Roorkee. Thus it still follows university culture to a large extent. More power should be given to the student affairs council. The campus is an open campus allowing local people inside. Though it is on the path of improvement still it has a long way to go before it can compete with the other older IITs.
