  • Like all IIT\'s, IIT Kharagpur is a great place to study if you are an engineering aspirant. Most of the professors have completed their higher education abroad, and they have immense knowledge about their field of study. Some professors might not be good at conveying that knowledge but with a little effort and determination, great interests can be developed. Classes are scheduled between 8 A.M to 6 P.M 5 days a week. With 25 to 30 hours of classes per week, you have ample time for yourself. Here at IIT Kgp we have semesterly system with two exam every semester. Assignment and projects are given regularly in most of the cources. People don\'t usually stick only to their departmental cources, they extend their options by taking additional cources from other department. This helps people if they want to pursue their career in a field other than what is related to their department.
  • Overall IIT Kgp is one of the best college, regarding academics, in India.
  • There are societies for almost everything that can possibly be done.
  • The Institute has two main festivals Sping Fest (Cultural) and Kshitij (Tech), other than these two there are a lot of other fests which societies themselves manage.
  • College life is one of the best you can have, societies you involve in, activities you can do, friends you can make, they all make this journey a memorable one.
