Student Reviews

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech], batch of 2021

For the first year, it is tight schedule from 9:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m five days a week but evening session will be free from next year, only 2 days per week. Teachers are highly qualified from different colleges and researched in various fields from eminent colleges .they are helping and explain us very well. We have an extra tutorial class for questions and understanding. That's very pleasant and boosting environment for study.


It's a new college so all clubs are not properly setup but all are progressing at a very fine rate. JACK, Sparkonics and ACE, SCME is the important club. Anwesha, Celesta is famous technical, management and culture fest of IIT Patna. As a student at new, IIT is always challenging, you get more responsibility and seniors are always there to help you. But it will be very enthusiastic and enjoyable.
