This college is a wonderful place to study and have fun at the same time. There are many facilities available like gymnasium, badminton courts, table tennis, football and cricket grounds, basketball court. The cricket and football grounds could have been a bit more large. Apart from sports, there is a lot of exposure in the technical side as well. Regular talk sessions and workshops are organised in the campus, where many exceptionally knowledgeable personalities come to share their views and enhance our knowledge. As the college is surrounded by companies like infosys, seimens, HP, WIPRO, etc, many company visits are organised as well. This is also very helpful for internships. The college life is very good, given the fact that that the college is in electronic city, which is very peaceful and the entire city is like a campus to the students. But, as electronic city is full of industries and companies, there hardly are much fun spots near the campus. Still, it is in a very good locality. The placements of the college are exceptionally well. The minimum offer was 16 lpa, while the highest went to 60 lpa(off-campus). The hostels are really good. They are regularly cleaned, the washrooms are very neat and tidy. The mess food is also quite good, but once in a week it is really bad. The college also has wonderful professors, who have their post graduations from around the world, like MIT, Pennsylvania Institute of Technology, University of California, Berkeley, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Mississippi State University, and from various IITs as well. The students in this college come from various parts of India. There are also some foreign students studying here. The crowd is damn good. They have various abilities, some are exceptionally well guitarists, some have national levels awards in various sports, etc. The college fees is a bit high, but is affordable. As of now the total semester fees, including hostel and mess charges, is about 1,80,000. But given the facilities and the teaching and exposure, the fees is worth!!

The infrastructure for IIITB's fully wired campus consists of a high-speed fiber-optic backbone connected to the internal network through a high-end gigabit Ethernet switch. Dedicated network equipment includes printers, scanners, and other equipment. Connectivity in the campus is established at two levels. First, the local intranet implements a "virtual classroom," where all the visual material, such as presentation slides used by professors in class, are made available electronically to students. All assignments and projects are announced and submitted online. The intranet also enables knowledge sharing among students.

The servers provide an in-house private cloud computing infrastructure through virtualization.

I have learnt very important aspects of coding, different technology in college. Faculties are very knowledgeable and good in teaching. They also encourage and support in participating in a various competition and paper publication. Placement is very good while companies like Amazon, Flipkart hire on the first day.

More than expected exposure

Strength of IIITB is it's faculty. All PhD from renowned universities (like MIT), very down to earth and approachable. You will have an option of doing projects for startups, NGOs, government agencies (like KSRTC) or your own idea (its completely your choice). It also have foreign exchange program in last semester where you can easily do your thesis in some foreign university instead of internship. Good coding environment, you will have awesome colleagues as 100% admissions are on merit basis (no caste reservation). Placements are pretty good (100% every year till now), as it's in Bangalore, definitely better than some of old IITs and any of NITs, so need not to worry about it. You get many opportunities to go for startup companies. All management activities are handled by student committee members: administration, mess, and even placements. Sports are encouraged, we have cricket ground,football, TT, carrom, volleyball, basketball, badminton and LAN gaming of course ;) So, just focus on learning and enjoy, rest is taken care.

Decent Place to be in

Posted on 03 Jul' 15 by Shivam
"I believe IIIT bangalore is one of the best college if you are interested in doing masters in CS and are passionate about programming, comparatively small but nice campus, decent Infrastructure, very good faculty. Placements are very good, all the reputed product based companies visit the campus for placements, apart from that some very nice startups also come for recruitment, the internship program during final semester is also very good. For all interested in sports, IIITB has annual sports event called SPANDAN where all the current students and the alumni take part in it is a fun filled three day event. On a personal note i had a very nice time here,making some very good friends and learning from all of them."
