ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • In one word, EXCELLENT! In spite of being located in small town and not ranked higher among the remaining IIT’s, the faculty at Guwahati is quite spell bounding. Most of the professors are PhD’s and have completed their doctorate from high ranking American universities. There is a facility for visiting faculties as well. Students are extremely satisfied with the level of teaching and communication. Some professors are definitely strict as they need to maintain the level of IIT while some are pretty lenient and gels really well with the students. Communication ain’t a problem as most of the lectures are conducted in English. The academic schedule of the institut is a bit flexible , as in ,it includes peaks and falls. At some points, it eases out a lot and then immediately follows series of quizzes and exams which puts on unnecessary load on  students. The normal class schedule for my department is pretty fair in a way it is never frustrating on any day.The relevance of the courses is high and the choice is done in a way that the courses are accurately distributed in each semester. I don’t consider myself suitable enough  to comment upon the teaching methodology of our professors , but could say the situation would get better and subjects would appear more interesting if each professor would exhibit their knowledge in a better way. Talking about the accessibility of the professors, some are very much involved in the department and college activities and reach out to  the students directly while some just stay constrained and don’t even think to interact outside the classrooms.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP: IIT-Guwahati’s course fee is Rs.1,20,000 per annum being in two halves, one for each semester. There are different academic scholarships available to students. The major academic scholarship for B.Tech students being IMS (Institut Merit Scholarship) ), which is given to Department Toppers &  MCM( Merit Cum Means), given to the students whose parents have lower incomes. Then we other fellowships for the research scholars and some of the scholarships are funded externally by any other institutions. On an average, around 10 students for IMS , 70 for MCM are provided with these scholarships every year with some around 30-40 phds granted with their scholarships. Ya, loans are definitely needed by the students in order to pay their fees and they avail for further loans on undergoing an academic activity like going for an academic internship abroad. The system of availing for loans  is simplified as the result of some of the banks having their offices in the campus itself like Canara, SBI, ICICI . So if any process is hindered by the bank, its very easily managed with the help of the college administration.
