That late night parties got my attention

Infrastructures need a lot of improvement, especially the sports category. And the industry exposure, I think, is enough. Though, more frequent visits would be better. Well, in case of placements, I think the college should try to invite more companies, as only a limited number of companies keep coming. However, they have assured us that there will be more this time and that will keep increasing in the future. Hostels are the best I would say, cause that's where we do our late night parties! And the facilities are worth for how much we pay, except the mess food. It's the worst!

Really good college. But the effort it takes to get into this college is not worth it. Lacks in a lot of things when compared to older IITs but is outstanding when compared to other local colleges. Great oppurtunity to interact with people from all over India.

One of the best among the newly established IITs

IIT Ropar has almost everything you would want your engineering school to have. Be it enthusiastic faculty members, good placements, well-structured courses, good labs and excellent atmosphere. Defying the problems due to lack of a well structured campus, the college has been able to compete with the giants like IITG, BITS Pilani and IIT BHU in terms of placement ratio, MHRD ranking, faculty-student ratio etc. under the guidance and vision of the director, Also, students are greatly interested in developing technical skills and participating in various technical and extra-curricular activities which makes the campus lively and full of fun.

About College:

The Indian Institute of Technology in Rupnagar (IIT- RPR) was established in 2008. 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- Ropar found the IIT- Delhi as its mentor in its early days. The classes were initially being held at a temporary location, which was then changed to another transit location whence the government decided to increase the number of seats in the IITs. It has partly moved to its 525- acre permanent campus in Punjab, though some phases of the construction still remain. There are four areas of engineering that can be pursued over here, which are - Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, Civil, Metallurgical & Materials and Computer Science & Engineering. There are no master’s level courses here, as yet, but doctorates are possible. Realizing its importance over the coming years, the IIT- Ropar even has a specialized Humanities and Social Sciences wing.

The IITI has also been adept at stitching international collaborations for research and student exchange programmes. Some of the universities where faculty and students have gone on exchange programmes or from where people have been welcomed to IIT- RPR include- University of Cambridge, Princeton University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of California- Santa Barbara, University of Ontario, Cardiff University, Monash University and the University of Trento. The IIT- Ropar is also part of the NKN (National Knowledge Network) which is one of the largest and super- quick methods for knowledge sharing usual virtual classrooms all over the country. 

This focus on academics and other social objectives have helped the IIT- Ropar to rack up high rankings across several indexes. It found itself on 22nd position among engineering colleges as part of the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) mechanism. The highly- acclaimed QS World University Rankings places IIT- Ropar at rank 219th in Asia 107th among the BRICS nations. 

Life at the IIT- Ropar though is much more than merely academics, as it involves a lot more. The main cultural fest at the campus is known as Zeitgeist. The annual tech fest meanwhile is called Advitiya and Aarohan is the yearly sports meet. The local SPIC MACAY chapter is extremely proactive, with events being conducted round the year. 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- Amazon, Goldman Sachs, ISRO, Samsung, Deloitte, Maruti Suzuki, OYO Rooms, Oracle, Reliance Jio, TESCO, Finisar and Tata Motors among others.
