    IIT is waiting for immense opportunities, just work hard to get in.
    Placements: We are a batch of 50 students, out of whom 26 are placed this year in roles such as data analyst, data scientist, and finance, with the highest package of 35 LPA. IIT Kanpur has the record of 100 percent placement in the Statistics department last year. Students who got internship opportunities in summers received PPOs.
    Infrastructure: The course structure is designed in a way that makes us industry-ready. We have data sciences labs, R programming, Java, and C languages in our course. The infrastructure in IITs is designed in a way that students get all their basic needs completed on campus itself. The sports grounds for all sports are available.
    Faculty: The curriculum is designed in such a way that we get practical knowledge with theory. Regular lab sessions are taken by the teachers in which we gain industry work experience. The exams are not very easy, so one may not pass with just one night of studying. We have four-month semesters in which weekends are off, so we have to cover a huge syllabus in a short period of time, which increases the difficulty level.
    Other: The life in the hostel is memorable for everyone, but IITK makes it more special by giving freedom on campus.

    The reality of IIT Kanpur.
    Placements: In my department, approximately 90% of placements occur on campus. The highest package this time offered was 85 LPA, the lowest was 10 LPA, and the average was 19 LPA. Dr. Reddy and Axxella are the main recruiters during the placements in our course. The internship number is not so good but around 50% of students get the internship. I have no idea about the role but it depends on which area students want to go to.
    Infrastructure: In my department, there is a separate chemical engineering building and lab, which are similar to industries but on a very small level. In the labs, you will find too many desktops, and Wi-Fi is always there and we have Asia's second-largest library in IIT Kanpur. The hostel quality is good but it remains good in the first year only and after the first year, the quality of the rooms is not so good. And in every hall, there is a canteen and a gym. In the whole of IIT Kanpur, there is only one medical center.
    Faculty: The faculty and teachers are very helpful but not all of them. There is always some teacher who does not push the students. Most of the professors are well-educated and good. Teaching done on the smart board so teaching quality is very good. Yes, the courses that we have studied can make one 90% ready to join the industry. Semester exam are always very tough in IIT Kanpur and very rigorous.
    Other: I chose this course on the basis of my rank and the main thing is that this college is close to my hometown so I chose this course here. The campus life is good; you will find fests, clubs and sports in which you can participate according to your hobby.
