What is the reputation of NIT (National institute of technology ) outside India.?

  • To the typical American: Absolutely nothing. No one would know it. The same could be said for IIT. Don’t feel bad though; the typical American (or person anywhere in the world) is pretty stupid.
  • To a software engineer at top companies / startups: Few would know it. People know IIT generally as being a strong school, but that’s it. I say this because I spoke at NIT Trichy and few of my fellow Software Engineers had never really heard of it. When I said I was going to IIT however, then they were impressed.
  • To a recruiter at top companies / startups: Many recruiters will have lists of how good different schools are, or will be informed enough. They’ll likely see it as second to IIT, if they know of it. But odds are also good that they don’t know anything other than IIT.

Many people are also not aware that there are multiple NITs / IITs.

The National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are autonomous public institutes of higher education, located in India. They are governed by the National Institutes of Technology Act, 2007, which declared them as institutions of national importancealongside Indian Institutes of Technology. These institutes of national importance receive special recognition from the Government of India. The NIT Council is the supreme governing body of India’s National Institutes of Technology (NIT) system and all 31 NITs are funded by the Government of India. These institutes are among the top ranked engineering colleges in India and have one of the lowest acceptance rates for engineering institutes, of around 2 to 3 percent, second only to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) in India. All NITs are autonomous which enables them to set up their own curriculum. The language of instruction is English at all these institutes.[1][2]

NITs offer degree courses at bachelors, masters, and doctorate levels in various branches of engineering, architecture, management and science. Admission to the under-graduate courses such as Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) and Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) programs in NITs are through the highly competitive Joint Entrance Examination (Main). Admission to postgraduate courses are through the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering for Master of Technology (M.Tech.) and Master of Science (M.Sc.) programs, Common Admission Test for Master of Business Administration (MBA) program and NIMCET for Master of Computer Applications (MCA) program.[3][4][5]
Since 2015, the Joint Seat Allocation Authority and Centralized Counselling for M.Tech/M.Arch and M.Plan conduct the admission process for undergraduate and postgraduate programs respectively in all NITs. As of 2017, the total number of seats for undergraduate programs is 19,000 and for post graduate programs is 8,050 in all 31 NITs.[6][7][8]

NITs and locations, sorted by date of establishment[9]

During the second five-year plan (1956–60) in India, a number of industrial projects were contemplated. To ensure enough supply of trained personnel to meet the demand for these projects, a decision was taken to start the Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs), at the rate of one per each major state, which can churn out graduates with good engineering merit. Thus, seventeen RECs were established from 1959 onwards in each of the major states. Each college was a joint and cooperative enterprise of the central government and the concerned state government. The Government opened 8 RECs in 1960 two in each region, as follows:

Region

Regional Engineering Colleges (REC)

Eastern Region

Western Region

Southern Region

Northern Region

Later on 5 more were added by 1965. The early 14 Institutes were Srinagar, Warangal, Calicut, Durgapur, Kurukshetra, Jamshedpur, Jaipur, Nagpur, Rourkela, Surathkal, Surat, Trichy, Bhopal, and Allahabad. It established one in Silchar in 1967 and added two others located at Hamirpur in 1986, and Jalandhar in 1987.
These were large-sized institutions judged by the standards then prevailing in the country. The considerations that weighed in this decision were :
A large-sized college would be more efficient than the equivalent small colleges, the proposed colleges have to meet the additional requirements of the country as a whole and for that purpose should have to function on an all-India basis. Therefore, the smaller they are in number and the larger in size, the better, and for the same reason their location is important from an all-India point of view.
The RECs were jointly operated by the central government and the concerned state government. Non-recurring expenditures and expenditures for post-graduate courses during the REC period were borne by the central government while recurring expenditure on undergraduate courses was shared equally by central and state governments.
The success of technology-based industry led to high demand for technical and scientific education. Due to the enormous costs and infrastructure involved in creating globally respected Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), in 2002 Ministry of Human Resource Development(MHRD) Minister Murli Manohar Joshi decided to upgrade RECs to “National Institutes of Technology” (NITs) instead of creating IITs. The central government controls NITs and provides all funding. In 2002, all RECs became NITs.

The upgrade was designed along the lines of the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) after it was concluded that RECs had potential as proven by the success of their alumni and their contributions in the field of technical education. Subsequently, funding and autonomy for NITs increased, and they award degrees which have raised their graduates’ perceived value. These changes implemented recommendations of the “High Powered Review Committee” (HPRC).The HPRC, chaired by R.A. Mashelkar, submitted its report entitled “Strategic Road Map for Academic Excellence of Future RECs” in 1998.
In 2004, MHRD issued NIT status to three more colleges, located at Patna (Bihar Engineering College, a 110-year-old college), Raipur(Government Engineering College), and Agartala(Tripura Engineering College).Based on the request of state governments and feasibility, future NITs are either converted from existing institutes or can be freshly created. The 21st (and the first brand-new) NIT is planned for Imphal in the north-eastern state of Manipur at an initial cost of Rs. 500 crores. In 2010, the government announced setting up ten new NITs in the remaining states/territories. This would lead to every state in India having its own NIT.
With the technology based industry’s continuing growth, the government decided to upgrade twenty National Institutes of Technology to full-fledged technical universities. Parliament passed enabling legislation, the National Institutes of Technology Act in 2007 and took effect on 15 August of that year. The target is to fulfill the need for quality manpower in the field of engineering, science, and technology and to provide consistent governance, fee structure, and rules across the NITs. The law designates each NIT an Institute of National Importance (INI).[10]
The Parliament of India on 1 August 2016 passed a bill to establish the prestigious NIT Andhra Pradesh, on a day members of parliament of the ruling Telugu Desam Party from the state staged a protest to demand special category status. The National Institutes of Technology, Science Education and Research (Amendment) Bill, 2016 was passed by Rajya Sabha by voice vote. The bill was passed in Lok Sabha on 21 July 2016.[11].

What is the difference between an NIT and a normal college.

After getting into NIT.

Parents (proudly) – My son is now in NIT.

Relative – Wo kidhar hai? ( where is that)

After getting into Normal college

Parents – my son is now in XYZ college.

Relatives- oh yes. But i have heard some bad stuff about them.

Before and after class

Nit- wake up late. 1st lec is gone. Freshen up ( brush only or maybe skip that too). Run or use bicycle to class. Worry and fret about attendance. After class go to your room. Eat poisonous mess food. Sit to study. Ends up being some game or show on your phone or laptop.

Other college- ( if its close to home) Wake up late. Get some sort of Breakfast from mom atleast. Get ready quickly and run to class. (Some things will never change). come home. Relax. Unwind. Eat some home cooked meal. Then study for sometime. Getting distracted is only upto you now. Your friends cant show you stuff while you study.

Teaching.

NIT- kya bola pata nahi. ( What is he saying?)

Normal- kya bola pata nahi. (What is he saying?)

Infrastructure

NIT- government lol. Dont expect much. Infact dont expect anything and you may still get dishartened. I personally know a guy who LEFT nit warangal because the hygene standards were so poor that he kept falling sick. He then went to BITS and is still there.

Normal – if its a private college expect DEFFINATELY BETTER ROOMS AND HALLS than any iit nit iiit gfti. If you happen to live in your own home then thats the best thing possible in terms of comfort if the college is in your hometown.

Friends./ crowd

It all depends on what kind of people you want in your life. No college can change that.

Placements.

Nit placements MAY better. Not all nits are good.

But yes more companies tend to go to government institutes than private.

Further studies and foreign entrance tests.

If you want to study more/ abroad then you will have to give entrance exams. These can vary from anywhere from 1 to 3 or 4.

You will deffinately be able to be more productive living alone without hostel friends or staying at your home. But then you will be sacrificing your hostel life. Which by the way, trust me, isnt glamourous at all.

Moral of the story- not much.

PEOPLE BECOME WHAT THEY ARE NOT THROUGH THEIR COLLEGES OR INSTITUTIONS, BUT THROUGH THEMSELVES.

All the best!

What are the benefits of doing an M.Tech at an IIT , NIT or IIIT ?

1. The IIT-tag

This is my favorite reason, because in this increasingly brand conscious world, being a branded product is a great advantage. After a ticket to IIT, father of ‘dream-girls’ will line up in front of your father (for boys) or greedy fathers of highly qualified boys will not even dare to utter the word ‘dowry’ in front of your father (for girls). Apart from such social benefits, you will be preferred over your non-IITian competitors with similar technical skills in your professional life.

2. Studying abroad is an extremely expensive dream

The total cost (Tuition Fees + Living Expenses + Other Expenses) of studying abroad is around Rs 30-40 lakhs for a two-year course. For expensive universities, like Stanford, it is around Rs 74 lakhs (considering the current value of rupee). You can reduce this cost by bagging some scholarship and doing some part time job and manage somehow by arranging a loan, but still, for most of us it’s a too costly dream.

3. Family matters, Nation matters

After staying abroad for two years and doing a job there after your education, it becomes very hard to come back and survive in the social and corporate culture of India. You earn a lot, but most of the time you meet your near and dear ones on Skype and your parents stay alone in some bungalow bought by you as they cannot adjust abroad. People may blame IITians for brain drain too, but post-globalization of the Indian economy in the 1990s, there is an increasing trend of IITians returning back or new pass-outs staying here for job or entrepreneurship.

If the top institutes of our nation i.e. IITs are not that good or India is a backward nation then it’s time to enter the IITs and change thing there, it’s time to stay here or return back after gaining knowledge and utilize it for future generations of our nation which will include yours and your relatives’ children too. Remember, petrol can be imported to power our engines, but to power our national growth we cannot import Americans or Europeans because it’s your mother’s land, the soil of your forefathers.

4. IITs are affordable

Being a government initiative the education at IITs is subsidized and affordable e.g. (for IIT Kharagpur) considering the expenses on salary, labs, maintenance, consumables etc. the total fees for a four year B-Tech course should be around Rs 17 lakhs, but a student has to pay only around Rs 4 lakhs (Similar subsidies are granted for M-Tech courses too). Apart from these, there are scholarships for reserved category students and the banks are more than ready to give you loan anytime for studying at IITs. For M-Tech, at IIT Kharagpur, a general category student needs to pay only Rs 28000/semester which includes tuition fees, hostel fees, mess charges, insurance, medical expenses etc. I hope you are too greedy if you expect anything else (next point is more interesting!).

5. Get paid for studying

M-Tech students at IITs get Rs 12400/month as the stipend. Just think, by this all expencive things covered..

6. Huge campus and energetic environment

At IITs, the campuses are huge and loaded with amenities e.g. the SAC (Student Activity Center) in IIT Delhi consists of a gymnasium, swimming pool, pool and billiards rooms, squash courts, table tennis rooms, a badminton court, a music room, a fine arts room, a robotics room and a committee room used to organize quizzing and debating events. The SAC also has an Open Air Theater where concerts are hosted. Students can also use the radio broadcasting facility (HAM) in the SAC . Similar facilities are available in other IITs too.

7. Chartered flight to the world of research and lectureship

M-Tech from IITs is a golden opportunity for those interested in teaching or research. A PhD research scholar at IITs bags a stipend of Rs 25000/month along with one of the most suitable teaching and research environments in India.

8. Reviving your career

Even after years of experience if you are struggling to get some higher (10 lakh+) package or you are unable to become a part of industry leaders, like Microsoft, Google etc. or you are suffocated by the mass-recruiting brands like Infosys, TCS etc., where your focus is on services like maintenance, testing, software operation and management etc. than development then wait for the GATE form.

9. A Deep dive into the ocean of knowledge

At IITs with better professors, labs, environment, over all grand exposure and a base of knowledge gained from you bachelor degree you are set to dive deeper in the world of knowledge where concepts will become more clear and your ability to learn will increase exponentially.

10. Great company to hone technical and interpersonal skills

At IITs you are surrounded by brilliant brains which inspire you to ignite a passion for knowledge. Apart from academics, there are lots of technical and cultural festivals where you can improve your management, communication or leadership skills e.g. (IIT-Bombay) The annual cultural festival Mood Indigo is held in the month of December and is purportedly the largest of its kind in Asia. The most attractive features of this 4-day event are the competitions, exhibitions, games and musical concerts. The annual Science & Technology festival of IIT Bombay, Techfest is held in the month of January every year and is the largest of its kind in Asia. It comprises various events like competitions, exhibits and talks from guest speakers from around the world .

IIT Kharagpur celebrates the Illumination festival on the evening of Diwali. Large bamboo structures (called chatais) as high as 6 meters (20 ft) are made and earthen lamps are placed on them to form outlines of people, monuments, or an event. The competition is held between hostels, it does not receive entries by outside visitors. Bonds of trust and friendship formed at IIT are helpful in building your future as networking is the key to human evolution.

11. Best place to get infected by the bug of entrepreneurship

IITs encourage entrepreneurship in every possible way and there is a long list of generous and helping alumni of IITs who are renowned entrepreneurs. Some big names are N. R. Narayana Murthy, Manohar Parrikar, Arvind Kejriwal, Raghuram Rajan, Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan Arogyaswami Paulraj etc. You will notice that IITians have excelled not only in the field of technology but also triumphed in various other fields like management, politics etc. Definitely, there is something in the air inside those campuses and filling your lungs with that air may enrich your brain forever.

Disclaimer: The figures mentioned i.e. fees, total spending, stipend etc. may vary with time, kindly visit authorized online sources to get the current figures.

All The Best…

Thank You :-))

Which is better among IISC and IIT ?

Well, that primarily depends on what you plan to do in IISc or IITs. IISc, along with very well established engineering departments, has some departments that are unique to IISc. These include Centre for Ecological Sciences, Centre for Earth Sciences among many others.
There is only one IISc, as opposed to there being many IITs. Most IITs are well known for a particular department or two. With IISc its easier to judge a department, since there will be only one! Also, with many more IITs being added in the past decade, there could be a ‘dilution effect’ to the brand IIT.

There seems to be a misconception that IISc is for basic research only. In addition to being a great avenue for basic research in many subjects ranging from physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, etc. it is also very application-friendly institute. Recently opened Centre for Nanoscience is a point in case. Many engineering departments keep featuring in the news for their cost-effective inventions most useful in the Indian scanrio. There are cells for start-ups that are supported for 2 years by the institute.
But it all boils down to what you really plan to apply to either IIT or IISc for.

      • In terms of Quantity (No. of Research Papers) or Quality (Citation / Paper), it is way beyond any IIT.
        • Due to presence of Bachelors students in IITs, life will be happening.
          • You may see many grand Tech and cultural fests in IITs.
            • Opposite to that Life in IISc is peacefuland without any noise, that will make you fall in love with nature.
              • If we talked about the faculty and teachers, you would be amazed to see people who with noble laureates and few were nominated for noble prize too still love their lab and work in IISc.
                • You hardly find a match anywhere close to this.
                    • Many well written answers are available. I appreciate all of them for their valuable opinions. My answer for this question will be divided into two parts. The first part deals primarily for the students who want choose IITs or IISc for their studies, while the second part deals for the young doctorates who want to spend their career at IISc or IITs as faculty.

                      Students:

                      IISc:

                      1. IISc is well known for its research contributions in the world. If someone wants to pursue his/her career in research, there is no doubt that IISc is the best option.
                      2. The strength of IISc is its world class research infrastructure and its highly qualified and reputed faculty. The faculty spends their full time in contributing for research and development, along with their regular minor teaching loads. Students usually get more time to interact with their faculty for discussions.
                      3. The teachings of IISc faculty are mostly oriented along the directions of the fundamental understanding of the concepts involved. The faculty give more importance to train the brains of students to think along new directions rather than spending time on designing more complicated question papers for semester exams.
                      4. Since IISc is a research institute. Students usually don’t find entertainment. They mostly engaged in their work.

                      • The products of IISc are mostly research oriented. They generally don’t worry about their placements. I have seen many IISc students who were working in some reputed corporate organizations, have left their job and chose research as their career path.

                      IITs:

                          • IITs are primarily well known for their bachelors engineering program. Of course, IITs are the best option for the students who want to get some job immediately after their bachelor’s program.
                            • The major strength of IITs is their government funds to attract more students for bachelors and other master programs. Most of the funds are generally spend in designing and shaping of IITs. Students can easily find entertainment stuff.
                              • Well qualified faculty are available at IITs as well. IIT faculty mostly engaged with their major teaching loads and in designing complicated question papers for semester exams.
                                • Due to heavy teaching loads most of the research students they generally find difficulty in interacting with their advisors especially at assistant and associate professor level.
                                  • The products of IITs are usually interested in choosing corporate life style. I may be partially wrong at this statement.

                                  Faculty:

                                      • IISc is the best option for the young doctorates who want to spend their full time career in research. In contrast, IITs are the best option for the candidates who are interested especially in teaching.
                                        • Teaching loads will be minor for the faculty at IISc when compared to IITs. Of course, the research pressure will be more at IISc when compared to IITs.
                                          • Research start up grants will be provided in both the cases.
                                            • The advantage with IISc is, flexibility will be given to the faculty to design his own subject course for teaching in addition to the departmental core courses. This will give a chance to introduce more advanced and innovative topics to students along with the conventional core courses.

                                            Tips for engineering students who are not going to an IIT.

                                            Here are some tips from engineers who did not go to an IIT and still managed to have successful careers.

                                            People usually think that good and successful engineers come out of IITs alone. Well, neither is every IIT engineer good, nor is every good engineer from an IIT. They are certainly prestigious institutes and have a great track record, but a great engineer can come from anywhere. Every year more than 12 lakh students attempt JEE Main but only 20,000 make it to an IIT. It cannot be believed that there are only 20,000 bright young minds that can be moulded into great engineers each year. If you did not make it to this acclaimed ‘hall of fame’, it’s alright. Here are some tips from engineers who did not go to an IIT and still managed to have successful careers.

                                            There are other great institutes that produce great engineers

                                            Some of the most renowned engineers in the industry don’t have an IIT stamp on their resume. Whether it’s Satya Nadella from Microsoft or Kalpana Chawla from NASA, they’ve gained their knowledge at other institutes that have a lot to offer. Here are some great colleges that have produced legends:

                                            — Anna University – Verghese Kurien (Milkman of India), Mylswami Annadurai – scientist in ISRO
                                            — Institute of Chemical Technology – Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani – Reliance industries
                                            — BITS – Sanjay Mehrotra – President of SanDisk, Sunil Duggar – CEO of Dabur
                                            — NIT Trichy – Natarajan Chandrasekaran – Chairman of Tata Sons, Rajesh Gopinathan – CEO of TCS.
                                            — NIT Rourkela – CP Gurnani – CEO of Tech Mahindra.

                                            Resources to learn on your own

                                            The most lucrative part about an IIT is the quality of education. They have a coveted faculty, but it’s not necessary to study at an IIT to access quality education. Many professors form various IITs upload their lectures on NPTEL. You can enrol for any course by renowned IIT professors, where you can access; videos, assignments and discussion forums. Infact, you can aim higher than an IIT, by accessing lectures of professors from the best universities, worldwide on EdX. If you want to learn all about Python, JavaScript or Machine Learning, you can even pick a course on Udemy. If you’re enthusiastic to learn, resources are available in abundance, irrespective of your college.

                                            3) Get the exposure you deserve

                                            What you learn in lectures is great, but every students needs a little edge over the competition. It’s during college that you realise what you’d like to do after graduation. You can’t decide that purely on the basis of which subjects interest you, you need exposure. Every college has tech fests, however, you can do a lot more. Write a research paper and submit it on relevant platforms to get industry wide recognition. The best part is, you can pick a topic that interests you and explore it beyond the classroom. No matter which field you come from, doing an Internship can help you learn a lot, especially at a startup, and it looks great on your resume.

                                            4) Work with industry giants

                                            Another star in IIT’s belt are the stellar placements. However, your dream company isn’t limiting itself to an IIT, they’re just looking for awesome engineers. Infact, some engineering colleges have better placements than the newer IITs. Here are some of the best colleges for placements and the giants that have hired students from there.

                                            Anna University: Google, Adobe Systems, Amazon, eBay, Flipkart, Ford etc.
                                            Jadavpur University: Deloitte, Facebook, Reliance, Pepsico etc.
                                            NIT Trichy: Microsoft, Oracle, Tata Motors, Godrej, Sony etc.
                                            BITS Pilani: Bain, McKinsey, Mahindra, Schlumberger etc.
                                            VIT: Myntra, Godrej, PayPal, Honda etc.

                                            5) Benefits from an IIT even as an outsider

                                            You can get access to IITs even without being a student at one of them. Every IIT has a dedicated tech fest. This a great place to meet your peers and see where you stand among the competition. Participate in hack-a-thons, workshops and other competitions, and win some goodies while you’re at it! In the academic space, there are a variety of week long courses that you can sign up for. You can even do an internship as a research or teaching assistant under your favourite IIT professor. Don’t let an institute define the kind of engineer you’re going to be. It’s your skill, enthusiasm and passion that can make you successful.

                                            As an engineering student, I thought it would be an interesting idea to share my opinion on the WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern – which I had attempted some time ago- and give you, my dear readers, some valuable tips. Please note that my observations are based on the WBJEE Exam Pattern of 2017 as the official notification for WBJEE 2018 is not yet out. But, in all probability, the WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern is not likely to go through many changes. So, stay tuned to this article for a more in-depth view of the monstrous task WBJEE exams!

                                            Before we get into the details, take a look at the WBJEE 2018 Syllabus, Eligibility & Important Dates to get a general overview about the entire process.

                                            Please refer to the following table to understand the WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern. The table explains the subject-wise division and category-wise marking scheme for WBJEE 2018.

                                            WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern

                                            *Q – Number of Questions, M-Marks.

                                            • WBJEE 2018 will be of total 350 marks
                                            • The Question Paper has four sections viz. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics & Biological Sciences.
                                            • Each section is further divided into three categories, each with a different marking scheme.

                                            For easy understanding, we’ve put together a table explaining the category-wise marking scheme.

                                            So, this was the WBJEE 2017 Exam Pattern and the Marking Scheme which is also expected for WBJEE 2018.

                                            Now, as promised, here are some useful tips to manage the WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern.

                                            Tips for Managing the WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern:

                                            • While attempting the Mathematics section, which is usually conducted first, I would advise you to attempt the Category 2 and Category 3 questions first, and then take up the Category 1 questions. This tried-and-tested approach helps you score well and leaves you with time for the Category 1 questions. It also boosts your self-confidence, which is a very crucial factor for doing well in the exams.
                                            • While solving Category 3 questions, please be very careful about not marking a wrong answeras it would lead to a waste of your time and no scoring of marks. Mark only those answers that you are sure about. Now, I hope you understand why Mathematics is so important for WBJEE 2018.
                                            • After the Mathematics section is over, you get a break of about an hour. You should utilize this time to relax and get ready for the next section, which again consists of two gruelling hours of problem-solving.
                                            • For the Physics and Chemistry Sections, again my advice is to attempt the Category 2 & Category 3 questions first. The reasons are pretty much the same as for the Mathematics section.

                                            I didn’t attempt the Category 2 & 3 questions first while my friends did and they immensely benefitted from this approach. I did regret it later, but since you have already read about how my experience was, you should learn from it and implement the same.

                                            Above all, the important thing is to stay motivated and attempt the WBJEE 2018 with a positive state of mind.

                                            You can read about a detailed, step-by-step guide to filling the WBJEE 2018 application form here and about the WBJEE 2018 admit card here.

                                            That’s all for today, folks. You could also read our article that provides all the information about WBJEE to get an edge over others.

                                              Please note that since it is a private college, there are no reservations, except for the seats set aside for the DASA candidates, who cannot contest the other seats.
                                              Facilities
                                              IIIT Hyderabad has some of the best facilities in the country for those interested in studying Computer Science or Electronics. The labs are equipped with the latest equipment in sufficient quantity. The Lightning fast internet is provided to all the buildings, 24 hours a day. Since there is a lot of emphases here on pursuing research and projects, the labs are kept open around the clock for the use of researchers. There are customised Research Centres for different fields, such as Robotics, Security and Signal Processing. These labs are even sponsored for research projects by industry giants.
                                              The library is one of the largest in the country, and as befits a technical institution of this magnitude, has subscriptions to a plethora of scientific journals. This means that any time you want to view a paper which is otherwise paid, you can view and even download it if the college has taken a subscription to that particular magazine. In addition, it is well stocked with reference and text books, technical reports and literature.
                                              All students of IIIT-H are supposed to stay in the hostels, which are quite comfortable and equipped with all the necessary facilities. In the first year, students stay 2 to a room, which changes to single occupancy in the subsequent years. Girls may have attached bathrooms in the final year subjected to availability. In all the other cases, there will be common bathrooms. All rooms are connected to the internet and the local intranet in order to enable you to pursue research even from your own room. The hostels are equipped with a mini gym (apart from the large common gym open to all students), table tennis room, TV, library room, coolers, etc. There are four messes, including a common mess, and all the managerial work is performed by an indigenously developed IT portal. The canteen serves non-vegetarian food.
                                              For the athletes at IIIT Hyderabad, there is no shortage of facilities for you. There are well developed and maintained grounds and stadiums for badminton, hockey, swimming, cricket, volleyball, football, basketball, table tennis, etc.
                                              One interesting point to note is the RFID system. At all points of entry into the campus and the various buildings, the RFID system maintains logs of who is entering which building and at what time. While full freedom is provided with regards to movement, a close watch is maintained.
                                              Academics
                                              The college is very serious about academics and attendance. Missing lectures can cost you your grades! However, since the purpose of most students here is to learn and conduct quality research, this does not happen much.
                                              The main difference between IIIT-H and other engineering colleges is the curriculum. In most colleges, the first year of engineering is an introduction to the different fields of engineering, where you study computer science, electronics, principles of mechanical engineering and so on. However, here there is no such concept. The focus is on your department from the very first year, with some foundation computer science or electronics course being covered. In many semesters, projects are included as part of the curriculum, so everyone gets the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge. As their website says, “The programme is designed to create innovators and researchers.”
                                              In the initial stages of the programme, basic introductory courses are covered, such as databases and algorithms. In the latter half, students can specialise in different fields depending on their interest and take courses in those sub specialities alone.
                                              Courses at IIIT Hyderabad
                                              IIIT Hyderabad offers B.Tech programmes in both Computer Science and Engineering and Electronics and Communication Engineering. These are both four-year programmes. In addition, they also offer dual degrees:
