Reviews About Indian Institute of Technology, [IIT] Guwahati

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Mechanical Engineering), batch of 2018
  • 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.
  • At IIT, you see two things happening round the year. First is primarily and by default, studies. And second is the hundreds of competitions at national, international level, hostel activities and sports and the annual technical and cultural festival.
  • These all keeps the students busy round the year. 'Alcheringa', the annual cultural festival of IIT Guwahati, is held in the first week of February while 'Technich', the tech festival, is held in late October.
  • You can expect a footfall of around 10,000 students or more participating from all corners of India. Celebrities and politicians all chip in and make the event escalate to a larger scale.
