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.
