  • Well, we’re talking about the top engineering institute in India. Undoubtedly, the reputation of the college is primarily because of its excellent teaching staff. One of the mandatory rules at IITK is that all the professors should be at least a Ph.D. qualified. Most of them have got their degrees from great and high-ranking universities in the USA. Apart from their crazy degrees, they’ve ENOUGH industrial experience and teaching experience at many other institutions. Some are visiting faculties at other engineering colleges. IIT Kanpur’s faculty for Computer and Electronics course is excellent and students are extremely satisfied with the teaching level. Communication isn’t a problem as almost all communicate in English.
  • Some try to get a bit friendly and talk in Hindi as well. All in all extremely chilled out and highly knowledgeable faculty at IITK.
  • IIT is quite famous for the numerous festivals that are conducted round the year. There are various hostel events and games that are played on regular basis. Apart from the zillion national level competitions, there are two main festivals conducted round the year.
  • Anataragini', the cultural festival, is held in the month of October while 'Techkriti', annual festival, takes place in early February.

  • Class routine is from 8:00am to 6:25pm. You will not have classes all the time. Classes are maximum for 5-6hour daily.
  • The quality of teaching is very good because professor explains things with deep thoughts.
  • My experience in college is very nice.  
  • There are many student societies and clubs on campus such as FMC club, Cultural club, Hindi society, English society, Vivekananda Samiti,E-cell etc.
  • Antaragni, Techkriti, Udghosh are the cultural, tech, sports festivals of IIT Kanpur.
  • Life is quite good. In 1st year student try to explore these clubs and societies, then they found things of their interest and start with that. Academics is little tougher than other cities.

  • Academics at IIT Kanpur is very intensive for all Departments. Classes are held 5 days a week between 8 am to 5 pm. Class activities primarily includes covering predefined syllabus by professors, surprise quizes, assignment presentations etc. There are wide range of electives one can do irrespective of departments. Professors are easily accessible outside classes also.

The daily routine consists of lectures/lab sessions from 8 am to 5 pm in the evening and are generally lightly loaded with assignments and pre-reads in the first two years. The number of assignments and pre-reads increases in the last two years as more specialization subjects come into picture.

The quality of teaching is outstanding. It is something that will rarely be seen anywhere else in India. Teachers like HC Verma make physics come to life with their practical and experiment based teaching methods in class. Faculties who are well known in the industry and academic area teach the subjects with passion beyond imagination. They are however extremely finnicky about discipline. The doors for the classes will be shut at 8:00 am sharp for the first class and no exceptions will be made. This makes the teachers more credible and someone whom you would look upto in future. The college has every experience that you could have thought of. Every hostel has its own canteen and mess. The canteens are open till late night  for the convenience of students and also there is a CCD inside the campus that gives out good coffee at subsidized rates! There is Antaragni which is one of the biggest cultural festival in North India and it is later followed by Techkriti which is again one of the biggest technology festival in India. There are inter and intra hostel competitions as well. Overall the place offers exposure to variety of activities that would shape your personality and turn you into one of the finest ask in the market at the end of 4/5 years you spend there.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: Daily routine is a little clumsy- 9:00-10:00 is a humanities class and 2:00-5:00 there are 3 lectures and also there are labs on 2 daysfrom 10:00-1:00. Quality of teaching is quite good.Every lecture is fixed and scheduled and ends in time every time. We get not enough time for covering up studies as the course runs like speed of light. With lots of assignments every week we are overburdened bit we try to manage it ny scheduling our daily life routine

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: On average, one has 3 classes + 1 tutorial per course per week and about 5-6 courses per semester.  A semester consists of a mid-term and an end term plus quizzes and assignments
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: Most of the foreign parternerships are concentrated within very few departments. And similarly there are few students who actually go abroad on exchages. Language of teaching is English only. Most spoken laguage on campus is English and Hindi
