  • First of all, I am very happy to be a student in IIT. My daily routine fluctuates with days of week because some day there is class from 8 am, some day class from 9AM or 10am till 12pm or 1pm. After classes there are labs/practicals also, so that we can get hands-on experience for 3 hours. Overall our daily routine is very busy but somehow I got some time to write this answer.
  • Quality and method of teaching is good. Method of teaching is not that much good because all the professors have a degree of PhD but not B.Ed degree. Overall experience in college is good till now and I hope it will be better in next two years.
