Student Reviews

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering), batch of 2016
  • IIT Mandi is one of the finest colleges in India when it comes to academics. It being an IIT is already a part of an elite group of institutions. Talking of faculty here, they need to have a Ph.D at least to be recruited here and they follow an interactive method of teaching to help the students throught the process. The classes are generally timed between 8AM and 5PM with weekly assignments and exams thrice a semester. All major courses have a project associated with them that the students need to finish by the end of the semester. Students are given the freedom to choose majority of the courses according to their interests and many students opt for a semester exchange in other universities too, in Germany, Sweden and Denmark majorly as the college provides a chance for the same. Apart from B.Tech, IIT Mandi has M.Tech, M.S, M.Sc, and Ph.D as other domains for the students.
  • Overall I would say that this is a fine institute to come to and have your academic future taken care of.

  • IIT Mandi has got all kind of clubs and societies be it technical or cultural. Just to name a few Website and Networks Group, Robotics Club, Energy Club on technical side, Dramatics Section, Music club, Dance section on cultural side and Photography and Art Geeks club and Literay Section, students get all kind of exposure they can think of in the field they are interested in.
  • Exodia, the annual tech-cult festival is the main festival on campus, followed by Rann-Neeti, the annual sports festival and many other Intra-college festivals keep happening from time to time.
  • To anyone you ask on campus on how's life at IIT Mandi, you'll get unanimous answer, Awesome. I guess that describes it all.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering), batch of 2017
  • All the classes and labwork at Indian Institute of Technology, [IIT] Mandi takes place between 8 AM and 6 PM, although sometimes professors tend to keep the classes as late has 9 PM too, when the syllabus lacks behind the schedule. Most of the courses involve assignments or projects or both.
    Each theory lecture is of 50 minutes duration followed by a 10 minutes break. Each semester, students have to write 2 Quizzes and one End-Sem exam for each course, which becomes quite tiresome.
  • The quality of teaching depends from one branch to the other and also, from one teacher to the other. Most of the faculties are highly qualified and motivated towards teaching. At the end, it's the student who is supposed to put in the efforts.
  • The overall academic experience is average for CSE students, as many of them don't learn much required CS courses during their 4 years B.Tech. degree. It's below average for EE and ME students.

  • All the clubs inside Indian Institute of Technology, [IIT] Mandi are managed by the students and faculties combined. Each club has one or more student co-ordinator and one or more faculty co-ordinators. There are several clubs, such as, Poetry Club, Art Geeks Club, Programming Club, Robotics Club, Electronics Club and many more.
  • Several festivals, such as tech-cult and sports fests take place inside the campus.
  • The college life is quite good, there are not a lot of people like in big colleges, and it's the best place to enjoy nature in its purest form.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Electronics & Communication Engineering), batch of 2015
  • Students have freedom for taking courses of their interests. For example, an electrical student can take courses in computer science and vice versa.

  • There are students from all over Indian studying in Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi.
  • There, I had friends from Kashmir, Bangalore, Tripura and Rajasthan.
  • Alcohol consumption is common within senior batches.
