  • Class timings depend upon the courses you choose.
  • The timetable is available on hand and one can choose course accordingly.
  • Exams are based on fundamentals and concepts that we develop. Projects are simple. Assignments may consume a lot of time and time management is essential.
  • Most of the Professors are very good in teaching.
  • We obviously choose courses after consulting seniors. Hence there was never a problem.
  • An odd case may happen that some courses might not be so well taught but these are never the core/compulsory courses.
  • Visiting professors from MIT/Stanford/Cambridge make way for some semesters and that is seen as a golden opportunity to learn more.
  • Overall experience has been quite excellent.
  • The teaching quality stands up to the prestige and name that the institute has established over last 50 years.

  • IIT Bombay being one of the premier institutes in India offers a lot of flexibility to the students. Once into the sophomore year, you can choose courses in which you are interested as Minor, Honor, Elective, Audit and Additional learning. Let me give you an overall view of these tags.
  • Minors: After completing 30 credits in a particular department apart from your department, you will be awarded a minor degree.
  • Similarly for Honors also, you will be getting Honors degree if you were able to complete 30 credits.
  • Regarding Audit courses, they are not counted as credit courses and won\'t affect your CPI.
  • But if you are highly interested in X course and wanted to have a flavor of the course without having the fear of damaging your CPI, you can just audit the course.
  • Like Audit courses, Additional learning also won\'t affect your CPI but they are credited and if you get a decent grade in it, you are welcomed to tag the course as an Elective. The courses are also pretty much interesting.
  • Some Professors may also include projects while grading the course which gives you a practical approach to the course.
  • Overall, academics are pretty much chilled out. But be aware, if you are not attentive, you may find it very difficult to survive.

  • One of many perks of having the education from IIT Bombay is that every BIG company visits here to select students for Placements & Internships .

  • Microsoft , Google , Facebook , Goldman Sachs , Oracle are some example of MNC that visit IIT Bombay to hire students. Apart from this University, others from around the globe come to seek an internship . In Marketing and sales departments , a lot of Start-ups also visit IIT to hire students . 

  • Average salary figures : IIT Bombay has very strict policy on keeping the placement details as confidential as possible . But we as students keep ourselves updated with the help of seniors. So Highest salary always goes to Student of computer science which can vary from Rs. 600000 - 20000000 per Annum. Some electrical students also manage to get such salary figures. Average salary figures for IIT Bombay students is around 7-8 Lakh per Annum. Percentage of batch placed - Answer to this question is very subjective , as a lot of students don\'t appear for placements as they want to pursue higher studies or do some other things. So out of those who appear for placements , around 90 % students manage to get placed 

  • Alumni network - Alumni network at IIT Bombay is amazing and very rewarding. We held SAM (student alumni meet) every year to let the students get an exposure of life after IIT Bombay. Alumni donates a lot of money to institute which is being used in Hostels and making buildings in the campus.
