ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • Classes start early at 8am to 12pm, with lectures of 50min or 1hr 20 min long. Afternoons are meant for labs and tutorials. Project and assignments are very strong part of the curriculum. Projects are generally required to be submitted at the end of the semester, whereas assignments are generally weekly submitted. There are two minors and one major exam in a semester.  the weight of minors is lesser than the major.
  • The quality of the teaching is quite relative. Some students say that it is very good while some will differ. However, I feel apart from one or two professors, almost all professors are very efficient in their work. Teaching is done by both modern and orthodox methods. Some courses are taught using slides on projectors and those slides are regularly uploaded on moodle. These are those courses which are taught to a larger number of students. Some courses are taught on board. There are no slides uploaded for such courses, hence making notes becomes necessary.
  • My overall experience in the college is very good. I have a very good friend circle with some of the best minds in the country. It makes you work hard. Extracurricular activities are very well promoted.  I have been the part of the institute cricket team. IIT-D also provides an opportunity to study one semester outside of India. I have been to France for one semester and it was a life-changing experience. Four years in IIT makes you more confident, intelligent, hard working and street smart.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: IIT Delhi definitely doesn't have a very hectic schedule as far as academics is concerned. The curriculum is made very flexible for the students, wherein they have liberty to choose their own courses for the next semester, at the end of each semester (obviously under certain categories!). The spectrum of availability of courses is huge enough starting from departmental core courses to humanities & social sciences or business management. Every semester has two minor exams and one major exam apart from the surprise quizzes and assignments depending upon the course coordinator. The institute attendance rule demands a minimum of 75% attendance in every course which is pretty sad. The professors teach enthusiastically* and are more than happy to help* you with academic stuff. (*conditions apply!)

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: The faculty is good i.e. the professors are quite experienced in the subjects they are teaching. However, while some professors teach well, some are not so good (only personnal views). This is because way of teaching of all professors is not same, while we like some we don't like others; while some are friendly and seem enthusiastic while teaching others are not; while some are easily accessible and willing to solve our doubts outside class, others are busy and rigid in terms of meeting after classes. Some courses are really good and do teach us a lot others which focus on rote learning seem to be just a waste of time (ar it makes mind dull). Some courses do require us to think and apply our intuition while others focus on only bookish learning. Overall acedemics at IITD is a mixup of good and bad; while some may think of it as more useful some may not feel it to be that useful.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: There is an extensive foreign exchange program made available for students in the campus. Universities from places like Hong Kong, Paris, Sweden, Taiwan, etc. exchange students from here. The students are selected based on their cumulative performance in academics, GDs and PIs. More that 30 sophomores are selected annually for this kind of programme which is fully funded by the institute. The language of teaching in the institute is English. However, students converse in English as well as in Hindi among themselves.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: Several students from the department get the opportunity to study for a semester in countries such as Canada, France, UK, and Taiwan among others. The cost incurred is a fraction of what international education normally costs, and the experience is considered to be an enrichment of one's identity. Chemical engineering knowledge is only one of the many takeaways, and chances to interact with members of multiple cultures, makes IIT Delhi's foreign exchange programs one of the most sought after programmes on campus.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: The number of students coming from foreign universities every year in undergraduate programmes is more than 40 and more than this come for postgraduation and research. About 30-40 3rd year students also go for the same in the 5th semester to countries varying from Canada, France to Sweden, South Korea. Students going on this programme end up spending about 2 lakhs (excluding schols) on their own for spending about 4 months in a foreign country (all inclusive)

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP: The college fee is very low as compared to other engineering colleges (Tution fee- 30,000 per semester & Food+Acco- 17,000 per semester). All students belonging to SC/ST already have very low fees (total around 15,000 per semester). Apart from this, any student whose family income is below the threshold (4.5lakhs I think), recieve a scholarship on tution fees if they are able to maintain a GPA of 6. Most of the students whose family income is low, do end up getting it (undergraduates). Apart from this zero interest loans (from SBI) and grants/scholarships are available in abundance (both need based and merit based).

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION: There are some sections of the institute which were made long time ago and thus needs to be renovated ASAP! But the newly constructed departments and classrooms are pretty lavish. The institute has a very big and established library system comprising of one central library and other 18 department libraries having a collection of over 3 lakh documents and stuffs to support research work and teaching. These can be accessed 24*7. Many food joints (Amul, Nescafe, subsidised CCD!) can be found in the campus along with the individual all-nighter night mess in every hostel.

HOSTELS & FOOD: There are 13 hostels, each accommodating about 400 students. For some of them students are full of complaints, though – they aren’t terribly well maintained, you may be stuffed in a room with up to 3 or 4 partners, and while students say it’s fun, we’re sure it’s not exactly comfortable. There isn't any hostel curfew in any of the hostels but opposite sex isn't allowed beyond visitors room at any time of the day. There Each hostel has its own mess, most of them stay open 24 hours. And there are some joints like Amul and Lipton in insti area which too remain open at night. There is LAN internet in hostels too with 2 GB download limit per week but it stays shut during 1 to 6 AM. There is also highspeed DC++ (local intranet).

HOSTELS & FOOD: On campus housing facility is available for almost every students. Rooms here are quite conjusted specially if you're 1st or 2nd year student. You won't get an Wi-Fi connection in your hostel, but you do have LAN connections whics works between 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Horrible quality of food. One of my friend make a good sense of this, whenever I ask him what's there in lunch or dinner or how was the dinner, he'd say that he don't know much about other stuffs but the water was quite tasty. You do have lots of expensive restaurants nearby off campus.

  • Life in IIT-D is very chill.  People enjoy what they do. You can do whatever you want, nobody bothers you. There are movie and TV series clubs where people assemble and discuss upcoming theories about their favorite TV shows. In hostels, students play Counter Strike and DOTA in groups. Exam time they become quite serious. Library becomes crowded with students and after the exams are over, you will find many of the students in SDA Market,Hauz Khas Village and Connaught Place chilling out.

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS: The cultural and other clubs are extremely well-doing in terms of the learning that a students actively participating in a club can get out of it. Competitive events are at the heart of this well-doing and the hostel culture of passing on knowledge in IIT Delhi is very popular. Apart from that the technical clubs have been performing little low but are improving exponentially these days. The social associations (NSS) is very active here and the atmosphere for students to build on their own ideas and make it a reality is not very far.

SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: Within the campus one can find students from all over the country, so we do have a lrge diversity. Horrible sex ratio just 10% female students. Although students aree from different place but they fit in well here, if there ideas match with others. One if free to do whatever he/she wishes. Most of the students do there own parties. Although the use of alcohol is illegal in the campus but a lot of students consume alcohol for several reasons which includes loneliness, work and study pressure, failure, deppression. We do have in-campus canteens which seems resonably expensive. Off-campus restaurants as mentioned earlier are much expensive.

SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: Students on campus are very open minded,you will rarely see any incident related gender race,religion or economic status but politics is a thing which remains in the campus very deeply in the student's clubs,organisations or other institute bodies.  Parties are organised for freshers and dinners are held with professors throughout the year and many fests are organised throughout the year. Alcohol use is not permitted on hostels,and strict actions are taken on being caught.

SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: Alcohol is banned in campus but is consumed by students in campus without much of a worry as the administration is not very strict on it. But getting caught, brings you in deep trouble. There is high tolerance to different religions/race/ethnicity as compared to other parts of the country and people normally do not see these differences. The campus, being in the heart of Delhi, has almost an infinitive variety of restaurants/cinemas/pubs/bars/malls/gardens/markets with almost nothing out of reach.
