Academics & Faculty

8 /10

  • 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.

Placements & Alumni Network

10 /10

  • When you’ve worked so hard for the 4 years and learned technology, every single student deserves a good job in the industry. IIIT-H doesn’t fail to impress even here.
  • The jobs at IIIT-H are exceptional and being situated in the IT district adds up as an advantage. Most placements are product based and Undergrad-Postgrad-and MS placements are common and conducted together.
  • Students tell us that about 100 companies registered last year, and recorded over 100% placements last year. Which means everyone got at least one job. Facebook and Google also recruited some students from IIIT.
  • Placements can be considered at par with IITs and the minimum package was Rs 6 lakh. But here the concept of mass recruiting isn’t seen, as most companies come with specific requirements and hire about 4-5 students. Facebook offered jobs in the US last year.

Hostels & Food

8 /10

  • Well about the hostels, they are at par with the academic infrastructure setup here at IIIT. 
  • 2 hostel blocks for girls and boys each, of which 1 is brand new. For the first and second year, the rooms are shared by two and later years, there’s a room for everyone.
  • The mess system is pretty cool, with north and south Indian messes, which sensitively understands the needs and tastes of people from all over the country.
  • There’s also a combined mess and in all, there are 4 messes, which serve tasty and nutritious food. Again the managing of the messes utilises a self-developed IT portal where you can set your default mess, and based on a weekly menu change preferences before the meals. 
  • All the canteens are equally popular with students. Not very critical, yet worth a mention is that there are no power cuts on the campus anytime, and other hostel facilities like hot water and security are all correctly in place.

Social Atmosphere

8 /10

  • 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.
