5Placements4Infrastructure4Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life4Value for Money
Satisfied with the placements and infrastructure, but dissatisfied with the professors.
Placements: The placements are good, with every child getting placed. The seniors help and cooperate with us in placements. Also, we can get help from professors and alumni during placements. Top recruiters are HCL, Microsoft, Google, Larson & Toubro, Ola, Uber, Zomato, etc.
Infrastructure: The course is slightly difficult, with a lot of classes. The classes start in the morning at 8 AM and may extend till 5 pm if there are labs as well. Wi-Fi is available on the entire campus. Classrooms and libraries are also very big. The hostel is also nice. The food quality is good.
Faculty: The professors are a bit lazy and unreliable. They can take tests any day. They are knowledgeable but lack teaching skills. They try to make the course more difficult for students by not giving them the right materials. However, the course can be cleared if we study regularly.

Review of CSE, IIT Kanpur.
Placements: 95 percent of students are placed in my course. The highest package is 2 crores, the lowest is 5 lakhs, and the average is 52 lakhs offered in my course. Google and Amazon will be the top recruiting companies. 90 percent of students get internships in my course. Roles offered are software engineer, back-end developer, and data analyst.
Infrastructure: Labs are well-infrastructured, and we have a separate CSE building called the RM building, which consists of AC, is open 24 hours a day, and is a is a good environment to read in. Classrooms have projectors, switch boards, and good infrastructure. Hostel food is average. Canteen food will be better than a mess. We have a health centre open 24 hours a day, free of medicine and health insurance. Almost all games are available to play.
Faculty: Teachers are well qualified and knowledgeable and some are not good at teaching. The course curriculum is relevant and needs extra effort to compete in industry. Semester exams will be a bit hard, as all are well and good at studying. Pass percentage mainly depends on professor but more than 15 percent of students won't fail.
Other: I chose this course because this is CSE. The best things are getting easy projects, more recruiting by companies, and easy settlement. CSE Society ACA should be improved and should give more guidance to students. Events will happen due to clubs and societies on campus. Fests will be 3 per year. Campus scholarships like NSP, donor, FBM, etc. will be provided for eligible students. Extracurricular activities are clubs, societies, and festivals.

Hostel facility are good; its like living in a hotel. food is good and the medical facilities are also awesome; there is a separate hospital in campus itself.
Faculty: All the professors are really good in nature; they are really humble. They are really smart and intelligent. The curriculum in electrical engineering is more likely to focus on machine learning and VLSI. The examination toughness level is also high as compared to other IITs. There are no fixed passing marks; it depends on proof.
