It has the amazing infrastructure, facilities and a positive environment to build your personality.

Faculty: Professors in our college are amazing and student-friendly. They are highly qualified with outstanding knowledge in the subject area. They emphasise more on learning by discussion and practical knowledge rather than mugging things. The course curriculum is relevant, and you will surely learn a lot of amazing things. It will help you in research as well as an industrial area. Only 5% of students fail in semester exams. Semester exams are a bit tough, and you have to study atleast an hour daily to...

It is one of the best IITs that produces the cream of India.

Faculty: To be frank, not all the teachers are very helpful, but some are understanding and helpful. They are experienced teachers, but some are outdated and restricted to the traditional teaching method, with 100% attendance in class. They keep changing the course content to adapt to the industry trends but are not very frequent.

Placements: The total batch size appearing for placements is approximately 1300 students. The percentage of students who got placed in my batch is 98%. The highest package offered is 30 LPA...

Review of IIT Kharagpur - Indian Institute of Technology (IITKGP).

Faculty: All the faculty members in our college are highly qualified with either a degree or some certification from renowned foreign universities. Also, faculty members are in close contact with various industries and are specialists in their respective domains. Courses in this department are quite relevant for getting an insight into the activities of the industries. But students must be willing to learn through participation in various lab-related activities.

Placements: Cryogenic engineering is a department which doesn't offer any bachelors degree course. It offers only a masters degree and PhD. The department mainly focuses on providing a platform for research in the premium areas of science like liquefaction of the atmospheric gases, superconductivity, vacuum technology and very basic plasma-related operations. However, operation of the companies like Air Liquide and LINE are directly related to the courses taught and hence sometimes recruit students from thi...

Our college has an amazing culture to have the best experience in life.

Faculty: Professors here are highly knowledgeable and experienced. They are really helpful except for some teachers who are not good. Teaching standards are really good. The course curriculum covers all the basic understanding of the course as it includes various labs with the equipment, which are used in the real-world industry. But to become industry-ready, you need to have some personal experience which you can get from internships.

Placements: Almost all the students who attended for placement got placed in top MNCs irrespective of the course. Most companies visited for software, IT, finance, consulting, data profiles, and you will get the experience of all such fields along with your own course. For core branch, i.e., civil field, there are less placements as only a few companies visit to recruit, which include L&T and Tata Project. But that doesn't matter as most of the students prepared for non-core placements and get easily placed...

College is huge. Life, placements and infrastructure are very good, but medical facilities are bad.

Faculty: Some teachers are helpful, but some are not helpful. However, all are qualified with a minimum of 7 years of experience, and they are experts in their areas. Teaching quality is not that good, but it can be understood if listened to them properly. This course is very relevant, and nowadays, this course is in big demand after coding. It makes students industry-ready.

CAT score above 95 percentile. The best Iims, call students when they have their percentile above 90% or 95%. You have a good academic background so you just need to score your best in CAT rest there is a fair chance that you will get in.
