  • Faculty - Top Notch - Daily Routine - 1st year is very hectic. The following years are comparetively less stressful. - Class Timings - 90 mins. Assignments - You'll be spending most (read all) of your time on these. You CANNOT copy assignments; you'll be given a straight F if you do so.
  • Teaching and Quality - Brilliant.
  • Overall experience - Amazing

  • There are a lot of clubs on campus. Lit club, Robotics club, Quiz club, chess club, coding club (very popular because of ICPC results year after year) etc.

Tech - R&D showcase. Full Research showcase for all research centers.
  • Life in college is pretty hectic if you're serious - assignments will drag you down and eat your time. You can go out and come in campus at any time, but 85% attendance and assignments will force you to stay in campus most of the time. What if you miss classes? Less than 85% attendance means grade drops.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Agricultural Engineering), batch of 2017
  • Absolutely top notch talent and highly experience faculties from various IITs and IISCs impart their knowledge to students here.
  • The main focus of the institute is primarily on research which the faculties conduct and involve the students in their work too.
  • All the faculties are highly qualified in their field, and what most students told stupid side was that they never spoon feed the students because every semester students are assigned projects for which the faculty only ‘guides’ them.
  • Yet some of the newer faculty hasn’t been able to impress the students. All the professors are approachable and are available all throughout the day on the campus.
  • Apart from learning from the professors, IT Giants from the industry visit the campus regularly for project and paper presentation, so that implies more practical exposure to students.

  • Now that’s where you see cultural diversity of the nation, people from all over the country make it here to IIIT-H.
  • But the good thing here is that absolutely everyone gets admission based on merit, and there are no reservations of any kind. Till now they were based on AIEEE cutoffs, but now would be on JEE-Main marks.
  • Also at PG level, IIIT has a separate entrance test, which screens out only the best talent from all the applicants so you can expect a certain level of geekiness in the students as all are very focused and basically interested in research.
  • Even the interview is conducted keeping in mind the research one must pursue here.
  • Also, the subjects, syllabus and learning methodology are followed as per Stanford University standards, and exposure to the topic under a subject is wide.
  • Many even continue their research even after they have been placed, or go on to do their M.Tech here itself.
