Faculty:

Although there are many young members in faculty with little experience of past, overall faculty is world class.

 

Crowd:

As it's an IIT, the crowd is bound to be multicultural. Boy-girl ratio though is about 11/1 which is poor compared to even the IIT standards. There are all kind of people from different parts of the country living together and involved in fun stuff. Societies/clubs are an integral part of the college life here. There is a great bonding within all batches. This may be attributed to absolutely no ragging stand of the senior students making juniors feel comfortable to gel up with them.

 

Rankings:

It should be ranked in top 20 among engineering colleges. It requires JEE rank from 2500-4000 though it changes every year. Changing branch is tough as minimum CGPA of 8.5 is required and only 10% of total strength is in consideration for branch change.

 

Placements & Internships:

Internship cell has been working up to the mark many of the students went abroad for there paid internships, Placement is 90-95 percent every year with highest of 12 Lakh and average of 4 Lakh though it differs for each discipline. Top companies visited the campus are Samsung, ONGC, BPCL, L&T are few of them.

 

Canteen/Mess/Hangouts:

Mess provides edible food. That's it. Nothing great about it. Not many hangout places within the campus but certain malls in the city are common hangout places.

 

Festivals & Activities:

It has two major festivals ALMA Fiesta - the cultural fest and Wissenaire its techno-management fest both of them have started to make a name in the eastern part of the country. Many activities such as cultural week, festival celebrations, sports general championship as a part of extra curricular activities are organised every year.

Verdict:

Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar being a new IIT is an advantage to a certain extent as it provides you to start new culture in the college rather than following old ones. Student should join if they can afford to go extra mile in every field and want to workout new things as there is no cooked culture for them to follow.
