ACADEMICS & FACULTY: The academia is just brilliant as ofcourse that's what you'll find in all the IITs across India. The resource material and topics taken are taught and made understood from the core. Even new projects will be linked with whatever you've been taught; that gives the college a practical approach to study. The faculty is awesome and adequate. They are really helpful and can even guide you apart from the studies, on things like your own project or even a business plan.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: To be true, the international exposure is nil. You'll havev to make your own way to reach to such kind of international exposure. That is one backdrop of IIT(BHU).  The language is usually multilingual. People normally talk in Hindi and English more predominantly. 
Ankit B.Tech (Mechanical), batch of 2014

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: Academics are good. You have mid-terms and then end terms. Lab facility is good. Professors are accesible outside class as well.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: All the international exposure you get is through internships, which you have to take care of on your own. There is no student exchange program as such.
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS: A lot of clubs to be a part of. Be it technical, literary, art, music, dramatics, dance or sports you have a lot of opportunities to hone your skills.

  • The students are full of praise for the faculty members.
  • All of the professors are highly qualified, and most are even interested in teaching.
  • Students may have minor issues with a couple of professors, but there aren’t any major problems, and teachers don’t normally hold ‘widespread grudges’.
  • In spite of the frankly awful girl/boy ratio (1:11!), the crowd overall is quite nice.
  • Students tend to gel with each other easily, and that can probably be attributed to the complete lack of regionalism.
  • Since Varanasi is a holy city, you often find students sometimes getting a bit too carried away with spirituality and religion, but don’t worry – it doesn’t happen too often.
  • The students are full of praise for the faculty members.

  • IIT (BHU) Varanasi offers four-year instructional programs for the degree of Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) and Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm). Five-year programs are categorized into the Integrated Dual Degree (IDD) program and Integrated Master’s Degree (IMD) program.
  • The IDD program offers combined B.Tech and M.Tech or alternatively B.Pharm and M.Pharm degrees.
  • Admission to all programs including B.Pharm is expressly through the Joint Entrance Examination conducted by the Indian Institutes of Technology.
  • The earlier half of the intake for Pharmaceutical sciences was through JEE and the other half through BHU-PMT.
  • But after the college was converted into an IIT, intake for B.Pharm and the IDD in Pharmaceutical sciences is exclusively through Joint Entrance Exam.
  • There is some program about the foreign exchange but I am not aware of that
