review of this college

  I don't think that potential of the faculty of IIT needs any Introduction they all are doctorates so all are expert but in my point, the best one is Prof (Dr.) Manoj Tiwari who taught us many subjects from 1st year.

Gautam Rishi Prakash M.Tech / M.E.  Student


Studying Mtech in IIT Kharagpur which is the oldest IIT College in the city is a great experience. There is a National Level GATE examination which I have completed and then took admission here in that my score was 48 and I got admission because I am from the reserved quota but for the general quota student the requirement is 56 marks The fee of the college is Rs 80,000 per year We also Receive a Stiphen of Rs 12,400 monthly from the Ministry of HRD which is also a great thing for us. The subject of mine was the Water Resource and in this course, the Placement is less.

 IIT Kharagpur- Home away from home

Soumya Shailja B.Tech / B.E.  Student


College is a place where you get independence, and if you college is IIT Kharagpur, you are in your own hands! Here I have learnt how to be responsible and independent. I have learnt how to cope up with highs and lows. Studying 2 days before exams, having night outs with friends, being carefree for most of the time, asking for treats from the seniors, IIT Kharagpur gives it all. The hardwork pre JEE is completely worth it! Here I have got to take part in lot of activities and the coding and robotics culture here is very good.   


A good number of students are placed through our CDC with decent packages. Department wise, CSE gets the best placement offers, but ECE, Industrial Science and Engineering, Mathematics and Computing, Instrumentation Engineering is also good.


Admission Criteria:JEE Mains score- 208 JEE Advanced Score- Approx 45% This college is one of the most pioneering colleges in the country. Along with providing exposure, it has one of the most widespread Alumni network all around the world being the oldest of the IITs.


National Students'Space Challenge. It is an all round fest! You have talks from the best physicists, cosmologists from the world from the best institutions like MIT, Harvard etc. Apart from these there are many robotic events with amazing problem statements.

Dramatics for obvious reasons. Social Cultural activities are always the numero uno choice for students as they are engaging, enjoyable and stress relieving.

 It may not be the best of reviews but worth a read

Anonymous B.Tech / B.E.  Student


It's a really good platform for all students irrespective of their streams. IIT Kharagpur is second best rated institution of India and there's no denying that as the results(interns, jobs and PPOs) are evident. It doesn't just focus on academic growth of a student but also helps to enhance an individual's overall personality. Society and hall culture specially contributes to this factor as they teach you how to work in group. It's all in one package!   


There's limit scope for internships and placements in my field of study but there's a lot of research going on abroad.


Admission Criteria:2832, Because I'm interested in Aerospace and wish to pursue this field.
