Clubs & Associations

Clubs here are very much inactive. Students are very much focused on their studies, assignments and project works. College life here will be awesome if you focus on studies and also you will get many live projects to work. 

College Infrastructure

There are around 14 hostels and most of the rooms are vacant as of now. As mentioned earlier, hostels and mess have no proper facility. Food is average. You'll get used it to gradually. There is an option for special meals and dinner for the first 90 students those who book in advance for it and its free. Labs are well equipped but lesser in number. The library is completely air-conditioned and you can study very much peacefully there.

Fees and Scholarship
  • There is absolutely no fees in our college and not only that, every semester they will provide three thousand rupees for buying books(which can only be used to buy books by the way).
Academics & Faculty
  • I have completed first year of my stay in IIST and as a matter of fact I am a 9 pointer. Class timings are from 9 am to 2 pm and then we have labs from 2pm to 5pm, so the schedule is pretty hectic.
  • The quality of education is excellent to bearable, some profs are really awesome and some (very few though) don't know shit about the subject.
