    I love IIT Kharagpur. The campus is well-maintained and managed. The campus has a beautiful infrastructure and is full of greenery. A lot of facilities are provided. It is amazing to be a part of this family. The college has a good security and a night canteen as well. We can roam around whenever we want. The hostel rooms are not that good. The college gives us the freedom to learn whatever we want and do whatever we want. Good machinery is provided. The placement opportunities are very good here. The faculty is not so interactive and industry based knowledge is not their primary concern.

    Indian institute of Technology, Kharagpur is the oldest and the largest of all the IITs. Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur has always boasted of its culture which has been different from all other colleges. Situated away from the city. Students have found numerous ways to spend their time here.

    Lacks in terms of exposure with respect to IITs located in metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai. However, courses are fairly good and can achieve anything with a bit of dedication and fundaes from seniors. Has a good network of alumni who are at the top of their game in various fields. What you will do later in life will greatly depend upon your time spent here. So make it count. All the best for your future.
    Campus Location
    Very far from Kolkata. Approx. 120 km. Nearby hotels are a good place to hangout with friends.
    Campus Facilities
    Some halls don't have good food, similarly some professors are not so good in terms of teaching and attitude towards students.
    Campus Life
    Far from city makes it ideal to bond within people of the campus itself. Students from all nooks and corners of the country makes it a good cultural experience.
    Jobs & Internships
    Best in engineering for Indian standards. But not as good as Bombay probably because of accessibility and exposure.
    Teaching Quality
    Used teaching material, not so strict homework and assignment checking.

    It is a great college. The college provides many opportunities to excel in any field. If you choose EE, ECE, CS, then obviously the academic workload will be high as compared to other departments.

    Beautiful campus. Surrounding is clean and full of greenery. Easy access to public transport. Kharagpur metro station is very near. There is a market inside the campus, so the students do not have to go out. Hostels are good, mess food is not good. There are many societies such as dance, music, debate, cultural, drama etc. Students are from different states and cultures. All of them are helpful. Ragging free campus. Students with good programming and communication skills get placed in good companies. Faculties are experts in their subject. Teaching methods are satisfactory.

    Like other IITs, KGP is different it has its own lingo and world. Freedom is one of best thing given in KGP to every student. The Campus, classes, hostel, gymkhana, basket ball,Bombay theatre ground are the best places. Life in KGP is the best days of my life.
    Campus Location
    Large campus to roam and enjoy. We have to use cycle to roam which brings us back the old childhood days.
    Campus Facilities
    Hostels are good with decent mess food. If you do get bored of the mess food you can always go to the hall canteens. The library is a awesome one with huge number of books and lectures.
    Campus Life
    The Campus crowd in KGP is high. Various cultural technical sports fests take place every year. Extracurricular like NCC, Yoga are available.
    Jobs & Internships
    Placements are good. You may or may not get a core job but you will surely get the other job - non core. The salary packages are decent enough.
    Teaching Quality
    Professors are well qualified and do have more experience in their fields. They are helpful during classes as well off class as well. Department programs do happen and short term projects are also provided to us by them.

    As everyone knows it has a huge campus, all the things has been systematically managed. Here, the professors are very interactive. 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.

    Unlike other IITs, the hostels are not located within the campus. 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.

    I am not among the best of IITians as rated by the general public. 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.
