  • 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.

  • 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.

HOSTELS & FOOD
7/10

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
9/10

  • For different departments, it varies.
  • For CSE, students may get internship and job very easily with companies like Microsoft, google, Amazon with stipends and also provide PPO if you were very brilliantly during the internship.
  • The average salary figure for CSE is around Rs 9-10 lakhs per annum.
  • But for EE and ME, it is very difficult to get both internship and jobs. very fewer companies come to take few students. So most of the EE and ME students, who don't even have interest in CS courses, would sit in IT companies to secure at least one job.
  • For CSE I'll rate 9 out of 10 but for EE and ME I'll rate 3.
