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.

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.

IIIT Hyderabad is a well-respected name in the field of computer science. From a world level programming contest ACM-ICPC to Google Summer of Code, this college has established itself everywhere. The students are exposed to the cutting edge research going on in the field and state of the art technology. If you are looking for a college and you know you are into computers, this is the place to be.

The Institute might not span large like IIT's or NIT's, but still, the campus is quite decent (contains humans who spend a productive amount of time thinking about stuff). It has nice classes, although AC's would have been an advantage. Instead of departments, there are research centers which dedicate most of their time to come up with novel ideas (systems) to improve the state of the art technological systems. Although the Institute discourages industrial internships (as it wants to encourage students to pursue research), it still attracts most of the big giants in the tech industry. This is mainly because of the culture that prevails here. Students are deep into programming. This college actually provides one the opportunity to see the best of both worlds i.e the corporate as well as the research (academia) field.There are no restrictions on the timings when a student can leave and enter the college, so that is an added advantage. Apart from this, there are loads of cultural activities which one could participate it. The college also has its own fest named 'Felicity'. The fest attracts quite a number of people from outside the campus as well. The college has its own areas for sports. Also, it is attached to the Gachibowli stadium, so one could enroll themselves there as well (for athletic enthusiasts). The student crowd in college is commendable. Not only will people find tech geeks, but also students whose interest lie in the areas of humanities, pure sciences, linguistics etc. Being here would mean competing with some of the brightest minds in the country. Be it the ACM ICPC or the Google Summer of Code, this college has shown the best performance compared to all other colleges in India. To brag a bit more, it has been performing the best in the world at the Google Summer of Code. The hostels have adequate facilities. Common amenities like water, electricity is present 24x7. There are four different messes which serve different menus, and students have the option to eat wherever they want with prior registration for that particular day. Apart from this, there are student bodies which take care of the needs of the students and have healthy discussions with the faculty, if at all any changes or improvements are required. Life here is quite interesting. In terms of studies, or in terms of fun, one can have both here and still create a fruitful life for oneself in the future.

Best IIIT in India

Now that’s where you see cultural diversity of the nation, people from all over the country make it here to IIIT-H. But the good thing here is that absolutely everyone gets admission based on merit, and there are no reservations of any kind. Till now they were based on AIEEE cutoffs, but now would be on JEE-Main marks. Also at PG level, IIIT has a separate entrance test, which screens out only the best talent from all the applicants so you can expect a certain level of geekiness in the students as all are very focused and basically interested in research. Even the interview is conducted keeping in mind the research one must pursue here. Also, the subjects, syllabus and learning methodology are followed as per Stanford University standards, and exposure to a topic under a subject is wide. Many even continue their research even after they have been placed, or go on to do their M.Tech here itself.

What we learn in our college??

Everyone hears about fun about fun in engineering college and every student is enthusiastic to go to college to have fun and to have a cheerful life as was I but I would say that iiit-h is very different from other engineering colleges here we have fun every day but we have to also study from the first day of college. Here professors pay attention to you and you have to also pay attention to them to get your degree. Here rules are very strict and this college does not allow any student to waste these four or five precious years of our life and made us learn various stuff so that we could compete in the outside world....

Encourage you completly

Here, five year dual degree programs are also available. Students who want to pursue higher studies after the completion of B.Tech. should go for five year dual degree programs. And, students who want to do job should go for simple B.Tech. programs. Initially, the courses are same for four and five year programs. Students who have taken admission in the five year program have to choose their specialization. Students can choose elective courses according to the requirements for specialization or depending on their interest. After first year, students have opportunity to become teaching assistant. Hostels are available in campus itself which is good for the security point of view. Both Veg and Non-Veg mess are available. Doctors visit the campus in the afternoon and ambulance is available for 24 hrs. But pharmacy is not available. Computer systems are provided in the fifth year. It can also be provided earlier, if it is needed by the students. Working in the lab encourages discussion among students and helps in research. Students can join clubs according to their interest.

Best coding culture

As far as graduation in Computer Science is concerned IIIT-Hyderabad provides the best coding culture in all over India with highest average salary in placements. Only two major streams are available i.e. Computer Science and Electronics and Communication, so it has a small family of 1500-1800 students with B.Tech, M.tech, MS and PhD degree students.

The institution played a vital role in providing me the required amount of exposure in terms of course material, expert faculty and good amount of industry exposure. It also gave me the opportunity to explore my talents in extracurricular activities. The institution is known for its placement cell with vast range of organizations.

"I joined this college 'cause I din't get a good seat in the IIT's but now I feel really happy for not joining any IIT. IIIT-Hyderabad the fees here is around 2L per annul including everything, its not less but it's worth every penny . The kind of students and exposure you get is really amazing and will never regret your decision but the work is a bit high but It's finally always your gain."
