College Infrastructure
Yes, college provide all the necessary facilities in the campus. Also, it is compulsory for each and every student to stay in hostels. All the hostels are well maintained with all the necessary facilities available. Food served is hygienic.
Quality of teaching is good. Many faculties had completed their Ph.D and they are of most experienced one. Labs are well equipped with Air conditioner facility available in the campus. Campus has also yoga room, where students can perform yoga in morning with guidance of teacher.
Quality of placements is excellent. College placement cell calls the companies , also the average package offered is more than 20 LPA. Placement process is easy and pleasant for every student in the campus. Many opportunities time to time are provided to students.
For a student of general category fees is approx 2 LPA. Also, college provide scholarship to the students whose family income is less.
Campus Life
College campus is best. There is also a TA culture available in the campus which teaches you the most. Location is also safe. Also, there is Arogya mini hospital situated in the campus.
Anything Else

100% selection. The average, which is shown on the website is too less as it doesn't consider PPOs and foreign placements. Simply put, it doesn't consider placements of many excellent students. So, after considering all these factors, the average package will become more than 20 lakhs per annum. Infrastructure is okay. Food is good as compared to any other college like BITS, IITs etc. Sports infrastructure is okay but there is a lot of scope for improvement. All the buildings are equipped with Wi-Fi. Student hostel has LAN ports for each student. There is a mini hospital (Arogya) on the IIIT campus. The faculty is okay, but learning in IIIT is not done in the classroom but the assignments teach you. There is a great TA culture which helps a lot and is the primary reason for the coding culture of IIIT. Even in the second Semester, we are taught courses like data structure, which is usually a year ahead. The courses are very carefully planned.

Culture, Environment, Coding. Great research opportunities in all fields from Software Engineering to Computer Vision. Cons Lack of infrastructure ( although improving rapidly ) . Attendance policy is a pain if you are a night person. Physical education at 6:30 AM for freshers for one year. Advice to Management Need better infrastructure and flexible attendance policy. Twenty words are required to complete this section so I might as well right something here.

Like Computer Science?Welcome to the best in the country

Placements : Placements for our senior batches are excellent and the placement is 100% for B.Tech CSE , ECE, M.Tech CSE/CSIS/VLSI ( Source : IIIT-H website) . The Highest , lowest and average salary ( excluding off-shore placements) was 35 LPA ,6.25 LPA ,18.53 LPA respectively in 2016 . Companies visiting the campus include Google, facebook, microsoft, directi , IBM and many other top-notch companies. Almost all roles offered are technical roles . For interns, companies visiting the campus are TowerResearch, Directi, Intuit, Microsoft, Samsung,, Indeed and many apply for off-campus interns as well at Google, Facebook, and get them too. Every year, we have atleast 3-4 people going to Google MTV, many to Google India and so on. Overall, I would say that for placements and Interns, the Institute is a top-notch one although you need to be very good at coding to crack those companies' interviews Infrastructure : IIIT-H is unique in the sense that we do not have Departments unlike other Institutes but instead have Research labs . Campus is fully Wi-Fi enabled except for the classrooms . We have a well equipped library which is proportional to the number of students studying hereon campus (around 2000) . Sports and Games are encouraged but do not have as many participants as other institutes and this is primarily due to less number of students in the campus. Quality of Labs and Classrooms is excellent. Food available in the mess is very good when compared with other institutes (Seriously!) .Medical Facilities are not as good as some IIT s , but that may be due to less no of students Hostel Rooms are double rooms until second year and after that as per availability single rooms are alloted. We do not have our own auditorium as of now which is required for some events like convocation , hence the convocation is conducted outside the institute . No, I didn't face any major issues related to infrastructure. Obviously, there is scope for improvement and it is going on, one major concern is that the institute is not funded by any State/Central Government and is self-run. Faculty : All the faculties are excellent, and highly qualified provided you pay attention to what is taught. Teaching Methods are excellent here and reflect in the students' knowledge . The student to faculty ratio differs sometimes being 15:1 to sometimes 250:1 (for those courses which almost all students of a batch take). Industry exposure is provided as well and course curriculum is quite useful and students learn things quite early as compared to other institutes because Computer Science Topics are taught right from the beginning of the first semester and this gives a big lead to the students. Other Details : Well, it may seem that most of the portion written is positive towards the institute. However, the place is not so well for those students who do not love Computer Science and because non-technical or management companies do not come here much for internships or for placements unlike IIT s . The programming and open source contribution culture is awesome here and IIIT-H has the highest number of GSOCers every year and also it's the only institute in the country to send a team to the ICPC World Finals for 13 years continuously . But remember that this all is for those interested in Computer Science and I feel that other people may feel left out. Plus we have PT for the first 2 semesters and we do not have a Saturday Holiday as in most of the Indian Colleges. You may not receive exposure in Sports and related fields as like IIT s .Also, we have only 1 College Fest which is not-so-high budget unlike IITs. The club culture has started revival but the major roadblock is the less number of on-campus students which affects participation. Also, since there is no reservation policy and admission is purely based on merit, you are rest assured of good peers unlike IIT s ( This is also one reason why I feel the placements to be 100% ) So, these are the pros and cons.
