The campus is great, also the teaching style in IIT Kharahpur is very effective

They always provide you with help when in need. Labs are fine, they are well managed. They give you a lot of time to do extra-curricular activities.Campus Location There are conveyance issues, since there isn't an airport in Kharagpur.Campus Facilities You will have to bear the ravaging climate of Kharagpur, and get scorched in the summer without an A/C. At most, you are allowed to keep a cooler. Since, IIT KGP is the mother of all IITs and it has been so, since six decades of its inception. Most of the halls have poor infrastructure, but on the bright side renovations are going on and turning dreams into reality. The best infrastructures are of Lal Bahadur Shastri Hall (for UG)and BR Ambedkar Hall (for PG, PhD) as they are the new Halls.
Best for technical studies!

More than 20 hostels are approximately around a kilometer away where the facilities are quite decent. Bed's are fairly decent and not dusty, rooms are neat and clean, internet connection with unlimited download has been provided. The washrooms are above average. All in all, the facilities are pretty satisfactory considering it’s a hostel. Sports facilities include gymnasiums, swimming pools (with water polo in a few) and a hockey ground apart from the regular cricket, football, volleyball, basketball, badminton and table tennis. Since, it’s a renowned and arguably the best institute in the country, students from all parts of India are seen here. Neither there is any race discrimination nor is a specific religion quota followed in the IIT. With such a varied crowd, understanding and maturity automatically follows. The students celebrate their college festivals on a large scale balancing their time with studies, placements and project work. Ragging is almost extinct now, even though there have been complains in the past.Campus Location Even though, the campus is located in quite a rural area, the college building is pretty modern in terms of it's facilities. Most of the classrooms are air conditioned with quite comfortable benches and projectors. There is library with books from all the streams possible of engineering and management, which are made available at any odd hours as well.Campus Facilities Definitely, the teaching is at a premium level. Professors have immense knowledge related to their subjects. The college has a facility for guest lectures as well. There are some professors who are extra ordinary and renowned while some are failry ordinary. Most of the lectures are conducted in English, of which some are fluent, some aren’t.Campus Life IIT is quite famous for the numerous festivals that are conducted around the year. There are various hostel events and games that are played on a regular basis. Apart from the zillion national level competitions, there are two main festivals conducted round the year. Spring Fest, the cultural festival, is held in the month of January, where you see participation from all over India and live performances by great musicians and singers. 'Kshitij', the techno management festival, is held somewhere in February.Jobs & Internships The placements at IIT are pretty different from the thousands of engineering colleges in the country. You need to maintain a good CGPA (academic score roughly around 7 on 10), to get short listed by the great MNC’s that visit the college every year. Microsoft, Google, Facebook, YES Bank, Nomura, Facebook and hundred more companies recruit students from the IIT Kharagpur campus. There isn't mass placement, hence the salary students are offered is roughly around 7-9 lakhs per annum. International offers reach upto 50-75 lakhs per annum depending upon the company and your performance. Students get on-campus internship offers from excellent companies during their third year of engineering. They get paid around 75,000 per month (varies with the company). And yes, needless to mention, 100% placements.Teaching Quality IIT and it's teaching go hand in hand. Definitely, the teaching is at a premium level professors are having immense knowledge related to their subjects. The teachers at IIT KGP are highly experienced and have completed their degree, PhD’s and what not from excellent American universities.

But, I am one among those who is respected by everyone in all around aspects. After staying here for two and a half years, I realized that I didn't achieve anything by entering IIT, rather it was what I deserved for my wit and efforts. It is nothing to be proud of rather it is to be embraced. IIT is not very special by IITians. Special is not in sense of honour, dignity or respect but, industrious and perceptive. Being in IIT taught me that no mountain you come across is not bigger than what you can climb. It is only as big as your fears. You need not conquer your fear just make mountain your conquest.Campus Location There is nothing much outside the campus. Accessibility can be better in terms of roadways.Campus Facilities We have almost everything we need. Unless you expect everything to be quintessential, you can be happy.Campus Life It is full of life and opportunities. Just don't set your barricades before stepping in here. You have lot to explore.Jobs & Internships We are happy here with average packages 9 LPA but, it is a misconception of people who expect packages in crores.Teaching Quality Teaching must be more enthusiastic and structured so that could stimulate interest in students. Professors can work on their attitude understanding psychology of students.
