Q:   Should I go to IIT Patna for CSE or drop this year?


The answer to this question is rather complicated, but we'll try to break it down as best we can. First of all, you should know that there are a lot of good schools in India that offer engineering programs. There are hundreds of them! If you're planning on going to one of those schools, then that may be your best bet it's hard to know where you'll end up if you don't have a specific goal set. But if you want to learn the most from your education and have a specific career path in mind, then it could be worth considering an engineering school that specializes in your field.
That being said, there are two factors worth considering when deciding whether or not to go to IIT Patna: location and reputation.
Location is important because it determines how easy it will be for you to get around once you're there and if it's too far away from where people live and work, then it could be hard for them to come to watch your classes or help out with projects.
It's a tough decision to make, but you should go to IIT Patna. The IITs are the best engineering schools in India and they're all great. But if you want to study computer science, then IIT Patna is the only option for you. This is because it has a very strong focus on computer science, great faculty, placement, etc. which is what you'd be studying at an IIT.
IIT Patna is a good choice for students who want to specialize in computer science.
IIT Patna is an Institute of National Importance (INL) and is ranked 41 by NIRF 2023. The campus is small but it is well-equipped with basic amenities for its students, which makes it easy to get to know your professors and other students. Many of the professors are from outside IIT Patna, so they bring a different perspective that can help you develop your knowledge of computer science. The institute also offers a hostel facility, cafeteria, library, well-maintained lab, medical facility, sports complex, and others.
There are also many opportunities for internships and research projects, which will give you more experience than most universities offer. IIT Patna will offer 3 months Internship, from May to July, to a limited number of students from engineering streams. The interns are expected to work closely with FIST startup teams and upon successful completion, an internship certificate will be provided by FIST, IIT Patna.
IIT Patna has been offering a good number of placements to students across sectors such as banking, insurance, retail, hospitality services, etc. The placement season at IIT Patna begins in October every year.
The placements are based on merit basis only; there is no quota system or any other form of restriction on admission based on caste or gender as well as other considerations like nationality or religion etc. The highest placement package for the year 2023 was INR 82.05 LPA.
IIT Patna offers merit-cum-means scholarships to undergraduate and MSc students as per the eligibility criteria. For Gen & OBC students: - Rs. 1,000/- pm for two semesters (8 semesters in a year) and Free tuition fee.
In short, IIT Patna has amazing placements, good infrastructures, offers scholarships & internships, and good sports facilities. Google, Amazon, and Oracle are top recruiting companies that visit IIT Patna with great salary packages to offer.
If you're looking for an experience that will help you stand out from the crowd and make a name for yourself in the industry, then yes, going to IIT Patna is worth it.
CSE is a very competitive field, and it's easy to see why: the number of jobs available in the field is incredibly limited. If you want to get into CSE, you need to find someone who has already been admitted to an IIT and who can give you advice on how to prepare for the exam.
But there are other options! You can also take your chances with another school or college. You might be able to get into an IIT through Open IITs (more on this later), or you could try applying directly without going through an IIT first. It's worth noting that if you do decide to go this route, it will likely cost more money than if you were accepted into an IIT but even so, it's possible.
In the end, the decision is upon you, you might also want to consider dropping out of school if you're not sure whether or not you want to pursue a career in IT. If you do decide to drop out, many other colleges offer courses in information technology and software development.
