Wonderful, IT-BHU is in top-10 (actually #6) in almost all sub-criteria too. This is quite consistent ranking. ITBHU is a sureshot TOP-5 college once the IIT branding formalaities are completed.

I can't understand that how can IT-BHU be at number 4th in infrastructure above ITT-M. As I have been to both institutes, IIT-M's infrastructure is far more better than IT-BHU

They are probably looking at the infrastructure of entire BHU, which is the largest residential university in Asia. ITBHU guys can actually use the infrastructure of entire BHU, so it makes sense to include entire BHU facilites in ranking. Think of IMS hospital, Swatantrata Bhavan, Swimming Pool, Super huge BHU library, temple... almost everything is used by ITBHU guys on a daily basis.

Some strange things.
1. I thought IT-BHU should score very high on ROI given the fee is very low.

2. also, my sense is that selection process also takes into account ranking of opting students still
why would IIT-R will score highest here and Does ISM get better ranked students than IT-BHU and IIT-G ? or they have a additional steps for selection process

please tell about average placement in itbhu civil (dual degree) in recent years

Is it better than btech civil ?

Is it worth of leaving a college like HBTI KANPUR(top 20 to 25 th ranked by most of the sites and magazines in last few years) where i have completed my I year (ELECTRONICS)

I m happy to see that ranking, but I would consider it at 7th (not 6th, considering IITD) still, I am happy when I look back, I made the best choice, ITBHU.

Hello,
I would like to suggest that the news and all the information regarding the conversion to IIT should be given on the it bhu website www.itbhu.ac.in so that students making choice for admission can consider that ... or just the link to this website can also be given there

Sir,
My daughter got 3243 rank in IIT JEE. The chances for her are
1.Material and Metallurgy in Khanpur, Khargpur
2.Chemical science & technology in Guahati
3.All branches except computer science in IT-BHU

Few of my friends are telling that IT brand is very important. I sm sure that IT-BHU will soon be converted into IIT. Assuming that IT-BHU may not get IIT status please advise me the order of choice to my daughter.
Thanking you.
Yours sincerely

Dear Mr. Sai Prasad:
I agree with your friends' advice here. Alumni from ECE/EEE and other branches from ITBHU are proof that the opportunities provided by the institute are immense. One of the most illustrious among them is Nikesh Arora, Global VP of Sales for Google, Inc.

http://www.itbhuglobal.org/archives/2009/04/nikesh_arora_electrical_1989_g.html

I would therefore recommend your daughter to take up IT-BHU.
Thanks,
Animesh
P.S. For reference, my rank in 1999 was 815, and I chose ITBHU CSE over chem in IITK etc. After ITBHU, I received my PhD in the states, and am now a research scientist at INRIA, Paris.

Hi all:

Sub: Clarification about IIT conversion
It seems there is still confusion about the proposed conversion of our institute to IIT. I wish to clarify the situation as follows:

a) Our institute is included in the list of institutes under cabinet note. The list includes 8 new IITs and our institute. The cabinet note is a voluminous document of several hundred pages long, and a group of our faculty was at the HRD ministry office for several weeks to help prepare the document.

b) The amendment to IT Act was supposed to be passed by the Parliament in last summer session, i.e. by May 7. However, currently there is an issue between HRD ministry and Health ministry about allowing IITs to start medical course, which is under Health ministry so far. Once the issue is resolved, then IT Act will be passed within a month of approval of cabinet note.

c) The next session of the parliament is monsoon session from end of July to August. If the cabinet note is approved by July end, then IT Act will be passed in the monsoon session, otherwise it will almost certainly to be passed in October session of Parliament.

d) If the IT Act is amended by end of August by the parliament, the current pass out (2010 batch) will likely get IIT-BHU certificate. Thus all incoming students joining the institute this year will no doubt get IIT tag. IT Act, 1961 as posted on IIT-Bombay website:

http://www.iitb.ac.in/legal/IITsAct.pdf

e) The dilemma of students/parents is understandable. According to their thinking, if they join IT-BHU and the institute does not become an IIT, they are doomed. They are also doomed if they do not join IT-BHU and pick up any other branch at one of the IITs and then IT-BHU is converted to IIT. It is up to students and parents to use their judgment about selecting institute.

f) Please note that 2 years ago the situation was different. In March 2008, Prime Minister announced “in principle” to convert our institute to IIT. Now the situation is different, as most of paper work, including preparing cabinet note is done.

We provide regulation update on IIT-conversion news in our monthly online newsmagazine, chronicle:

www.itbhuglobal.org/chronicle

Please note all info is taken from authorized sources (VC, Director, faculty who worked on conversion, alumni who met MHRD, etc.) and it is crosschecked before publishing.

Hi All,
One thing I'd like to change in Yogesh's reply is that in no case you are 'doomed'. All the original IIT's + IT-BHU + BITS Pilani +IIIT Hyd are good institutes and if you even have a average performance in college you surely get a job.

Coming to statistics as requested by Gaurav, CSE ITBHU Bacth 06 (which graduated this year) had a very good placement even though they were the batch that faced recession effect (few major companies skipped the procedure because of that). Avaerage salary was around 8.5 LPA and only 4-5 students (from batch of 50) had salary of less than 5 LPA. Around 10 students had double Job offers. The previous year also the average salary was around 8 LPA. So all in all palcement is good enough and better than no circuit branches in all IIT's.

About the choice, I'd suggest to go for the branch you have interest in (thats why i choose CSE wherever I got it). If no specific preference for branch and job is the only concern then too circuit branches are much better. Also compared to IT-BHU and the new IIT's I'd prefer IT-BHU even without the IIT tag as you atleast get to have a campus. New IIT's dont have a campus of their own and live like secondary citizens in some other campus.
Also one additional information Dual Degree courses (or MSc in IIT's) are good enough courses and having a dual degree in good branch is better than having just btech in some other branch. Unless ofcourse you value one extra year too much.

Hope it answers atleast some of your queries!

Ofcourse EE is much better than MSc. MSc is not an engineering degree, its a science degree. You would be screened out of many jobs that require B.Tech/BE as a prerequisite. Plus you waste an extra year that you can use doing MS in USA or MBA anywhere later.

hi all..!!

From above discussion, can we conclude that now it bhu has the same status as the new iits..?
is itbhu now as much iit as are the new iits..?

June 8, 2010 12:35 AM
 Anonymous said:

i meant that...
new iits are also not approved by cabinet and parliament , they are listed in iit amendment act..also according to above clarification by yogesh sir it bhu is also listed along the new iits...so this means now itbhu is in same position of being iit as the new iits...
is it true..??

also,
new iits are now operating since 2 years, they have to give degree to their first batch 2 years from now , but they cant do so without modification of iit act in the parliament (true?)..so assuming the worst possible scenario that iit act is amended in 2012(it HAS to amended on or before 2012)..:
it implies..::
1) by any means itbhu will be iit by 2012.
2) even assuming worst scenario 2012 paasing out batch will get iit degree.(if u dig deep even 2011 pass out batch will get iit degree as convo happens a year later)
3) this year incoming batch will in any case get iit degree..!!

am i correct..??

 Anonymous said:

Hi,
As for the above query we are as much an IIT as the new IITs the only difference being that we have another name associated with us in the form of IT-BHU.The new IITs have no alternate names and hence are called as IITs. However the legal status of the new IITs,as on today, is that they are societies which can offer only diplomas instead of degrees till they are passed by the parliament. So the IIT Act will get amended latest by 2012 when their first batch passes out.Since we are attached in the document along with the new IITs we can surely hope to get the status by 2012.The institute is undoubtedly far better than IIT-G and the new IITs so you can come here, if you have a good option with your eyes closed!!

Dhwaj Gupta:

There is no placement statistics available for batches of 5-yr Integrated M Tech or Dual Degree M Tech, as the first batches will pass out only this year. I know first hand that some of the bright students have joined PhD program in world-class universities in USA.

Saurabh:

B. Pharm/M. Pharm students typically join pharma industry in India/USA. There is no placement statistics available, but many are doing good. With US pharma industry outsourcing contract research and manufacturing jobs to Indian companies and our institute becoming an IIT, more campus placement is expected in near future.

@Dhwaj

In 2010, first batch of Dual/int. Mtech went through the placement process and as per my personal interaction with them, the placement for dual degree courses has been comparable to BTech.

Animesh, I remember we had a page where all relevant questions asked in parliament related to ITBHU conversion were posted. Can you upload the content here also? That will give new joiners and their parents a more confidence in comparison to chronicle reports (though they are very much accurate).

hi all..
The Guy without name but with three points/questions, is me, Ashutosh..

just wanted to prove the point to the newcomers that how close are we to iit conversion..!!
though i dont believe iit conversion should be sole criterion to choose itbhu coz it bhu is anyways a institue of iit standards, u can compare placements , alumni network anything for that matter..!!
see, what u get from a insitute(be it iits/(i)itbhu/or any good college)depends upon how much u wanna take from it...the harder u work the better u get..!!
if u do good while being at (i)itbhu, it will offer u similar opportunities as u get in any iit if u do good there.!!

@dhwaj
its correct that students of 2010(dual/mtech)batch have joined PhD program in world-class universities in USA/eur.

@Vyom: Of course the opening and closing ranks of every branch will change once IT-BHU becomes an IIT. Not sure why there is a doubt in this, and more importantly, why this matters?

@Rahul: No, only students graduating [passing out] after the IIT conversion of Roorkee got IIT degrees. Those who graduated 2-3 years back had already gotten their degrees 2-3 years back, with UoR logo. Again, not sure why this is a question.

 Rohit Ranjan CSE00 said:

I see lots of questions about JEE rank and IT-BHU conversion to IIT. Here are my opinions if it helps anyone.

1. Since so many of you are asking question, its obvious that opening and closing rank might vary this year and for sure by bigger margin when conversion takes place.

2. I don't know the scene right now but 10 years back, big percentage of engg grads from IIT/IT-BHU used to take job in IT sector so if you have no specific interest in a branch then its better to take IT-BHU CS if you can get.

3. With other branches as well, you will do ok from any decent place.

4. IT-BHU is very good place even without IIT tag but IIT tag will bring more money that will translate into better infrastructure for future students.

5. Once you made the cut for JEE, its almost irrelevent which institution you select. Go with better prospect branches or something specific if you are interested. Either way you will do ok as long as you keep same focus and energy which got you till here.

6.I remember IIT-G coming at same time when I was joining. Having seen that I will avoid newer IIT without any campus or infrastructure for few years at least. They will eventually come upto speed but needs couple of years to even get their basics. At least , thats what I heard from my frind who went to IIT-G.

7. Don't worry too much about opening and closing ranks etc. Go for the better prospect/place/branch if you have choice.

I hope it was helpful.

My two cents...

opening and closing ranks of the courses after air 2500 fell both in 2008 and 2009 in every iit/itbhu.
guys in iitk, iitr,iitg, kgp, itbhu etc got branches at an air(low) which were not available at that air in in prev years....those guys were very happy as in their words "govt. succeeded in fooling some studs to get into new iits"...
i mean its unwise to get into new iits now(some even regret after getting into and seeing the state)...they will be good institutions in say 8-10 years from now..but as for now they have absolutely nothing(what value iit kgp had in 1954?)

here are some views of iitk prof..
Q: I have got a 2500+ rank in JEE. Can I get admission in one of the eight new IITs. Are they going to be as good.
A: As I said elsewhere, building infrastructure is cheap, but of course, it will take time. All new IITs are in temporary campuses, and most of them do not even have their land allocation done. And in a temporary campus, facilities cannot be what one can have at one's own campus. But adequate facilities will be available for the students.
But IIT education is not about quality of instruction and facilities alone. It is essentially about being a part of the brand. The new IITs will take at least a decade, if not more, to build that brand. So studying in new IITs will be less advantageous to you in the early part of the career, but eventually you will catch up.

so we can say that its ok to set priority order as:: original 5 iits> 'i'itbhu=iitr>iitg>iit gn= iit hyd > rest new iits

Hi All, just saw messages on this board.

Wanted to share my 2 cents. I passed out from the hallowed portals of IT BHU 14 years back and the same angst used to be there regarding the missing I. Think we are really grateful to the likes of Yogesh, Animesh & team to be close to getting the missing I.

But the point I want to make is that on hindsight, even without the 'I', most of us have done equally well if not better than our peers at other IITs. In fact, the great 4 years spent in BHU added some skills which are more useful in corporate life than any technical skills taught at other instis. Though I added a post grad from IIM later, but I really value the time spent at IT BHU and can vouch that it is a terrific place to spend those critical 4-5 years of your life.

will the curriculum of couses offered at it-bhu change after it becomes an iit , as the iit's offer a lot of flexibility in their courses?
the present curriculum of courses at it-bhu does not seem that flexible as compared to the iit's.
also the number of electives offered are considerably less .
will the alumni take this issue with concerned authorities at it-bhu?

Yes. The curriculum of couses offered at it-bhu will change after it becomes an iit. Don't forget that you also have the option of taking any elective at any faculty across BHU. I personally took German language classes and music lessons from other faculties at BHU when I was at ITBHU. I now live in USA and that German knowledge has already helped me many times with clients. The music and guitaring skills that I picked from the music faculty at BHU has helped me be a star of many after-work parties. This type of convenience is unparalled at any other IIT.

You need complete education to grow vertically in life, and not just be an engineering geek. Look at linkedIn profiles of many past IIT-JEE rank #1/2/3 holders. Many of them are simply engineering geeks working as engineers in USA even after 10-15 years of graduating from IIT. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It is a personal choice, but I was surprised to find that hardly any of these 'super intelligent' guys could move on to the management track. No wonder it is said that Emotional Intelligence counts more than mere IQ in future success. My point is simple, develop overall personality, so that you don't end up as geek or nerd. To be a future VP/CEO, you would need to have the people skills/ street-smartness along with core knowledge. ITBHU gives you that platform to develop yourself 360 degrees.

June 16, 2010 3:19 AM
 Paras said:

Average salary of mining engineering students has been quite good of lately.
If u are interested in joining PSUs, then lots of PSUs such as CIL, NMDC, SAIL come for campus recruitment. IN addition to them companies such as Reliance, TATA steel also recruit from campus. You will very easily get placed in them (unless you totally screw your CGPA). Average package offered by these companies is around 7-8 lakhs.
Petroleum firms such as Shell also recruit at handsome salary of 10-12 lakhs.
If you are not interested in Mining,there exists opportunities in software, Market research, data analytics, Consulting etc. These companies recruit from all branches and salary offered by them ranges from 3-10 lakhs.
See, getting a job depends upon your skill sets really and if you dont screw your Btech completely then you can easily get a very good job at Mining Department at IT-BHU.

June 16, 2010 10:40 PM
 abhay said:

paras sir,
do all the above companies recruit from mining in it bhu??

June 17, 2010 12:03 AM
 Paras said:

See there are two set of companies for every branch:
Core companies (they offer technical profile and recruit from synergic branches): For mining: TATA Steel, SAIL, CIL, NMDC, Reliance, Orica, Jindal Steel, Vedanta, Shell are core companies
Open for all: These are open for all branches and offer profiles in Software, Market research, data analytics, Consulting, Operations, Marketing etc. These companies higher you for skill sets such as communication skills, analytical skills, Coding proficiency etc rather than your engineering skills (but of course CGPA matters for these companies as well).
So, yes all the companies mentioned above do recruit from Mining on regular basis.
I'll suggest you dont worry about ur job, unless u really screw your CGPA, you would get a good job at ITBHU

Hi Aman

It was expected the there would be changes in the opening and closing ranks in 2010 due to the fact that IT BHU is going to be IIT very soon. This might has caused better opening and closing JEE ranks in IT BHU vis-a-vis last year's opening and closing ranks. Just wait and hope for the best.

Post IIT conversion there will be drastic changes in opening and closing ranks in every branch, students admitted this year will be lucky as next year it will be really tough to get same branch in IT BHU with the same JEE rank as in 2010.

It depends on what is your future plan. If you want to go abroad for job or studies, or excel in academics, BHU-IT is the best place.The Met. deptt is the best in BHU-IT. Most of the Engineers, do MBA after engineering degree, so in that case your discipline will not matter. Lot many engineers are joining companies like Infosys after graduation, then your discipline does not matter.
I am a Metallugist and I can say that your options as metallurgist are limted and generally if you want to stick to your core metallurgical job, then options of locations also becomes limited. You generally cannot expect to get core metallurgical job in cities of your choice.
But whatever you select, ultimately it is your hard work and attitude that carries you and BHU-IT environment is certainly better placed than others in developing a smart engineer.

Ceramic Engg has a lot of opportunities in high tech research.Moreover as compared to other branches it is easier to get an MS/Phd call from reputed universities throughout the world in material science discipline.I know people with less than average grades getting admission in decent universities.
Opportunities are also there in core companies.Companies like Tata steel,Sail,Piramal Glass,Mecon etc. offer package of around 6lpa.Considering less number of graduates and many opting for reasearch and non core options,most students who have a desire of joining core sector get placed there.
Female alumni of ceramic engg deptt are also doing very good in all fields(research,IT,post MBA career)

My response

Ceramics is (or was)the most underrated branch. It is actually a great branch to study and to work in. After a B.Tech in Ceramics, you have great fields opening up for you - such as Materials Science, Nano technology, Semi-conductor research etc., in addition to the conventional fields such as Chemical and Process engg., abrasives, refractories etc. In addition, you can always get great sales / marketing jobs PLUS you get to pursue Post Grad degrees in Engg. as well as in Management. Some of my contemporaries who chose Ceramics (a few of them actually took a branch change from Civil to Ceramics) are all doing very well.

If you have USA in mind as your ultimate destination, even here Ceramics can be of great help.

You cannot go wrong by taking Mettalurgical Engineering at IT-BHU. It is well known department and you can easily come to US for graduate studies in schools such as Stanford and UC Berkeley. The experience at IT-BHU is very exhilarating. You can join the solar,semiconductors and auto industries without a hitch. Also, lately IT-BHU is ranked 6th and BHU ranked No. 1 in the nation. I am a graduate of 1981 -ME batch and enjoyed every minute of my time at IT-BHU. DTU although based in Delhi, I am presuming does not have that high a following. In addition, it is matter of months that IT-BHU will become IIT-BHU which will add more prominance to the institute and to you.

@Mohan: Not sure what you mean by "i want to go for masters degree and also placements and future opportunities".

Do you want to go for master's degree or placements? Can't have them both :).

If I understand correctly, currently the recommended thing to do is to go for B.Tech, if available, when compared to IDD in the same branch. However, hopefully in some years the Master's level courses in India will get good enough that the companies will prefer to hire MTech students for their knowledge.

Short answer - go for B.Tech.
Long answer -- see above :).

with this degree it will end up in 5 years only,
or is there any boundation that m. tech one do only research and and don't pursue jobs.

http://piratecoders.co.cc/iitjee/results.html
http://piratecoders.co.cc/projects/iit-jee-results/jee-ranks/

actually one can find the details of seat alloted to all the successful candidates of iit-jee 2010.
and also the opening/closing rank for after the first round

2)@saurav...i think ece in nit trichy will be better than itbhu civil. placement in itbhu civil is average...from pnt of view of higher studies also ece is better.
anyway go for "option 3" for the Second allotment. all d best

3)Ceramic engineering and Metallurgy are very good options for someone interetsed in doing MS/PhD or have interest in R&D.
If someone is looking for MBA then ..there is sufficient time to join coaching institutes, as not much to study. Placement in metallurgy is better than ceramic engg.

4)Regarding "dual degree or pure btech in same branch(at it bhu)":
PSUs rarely recruit dual degree student and Neraly all the PSUs visits itbhu. For private firms both both r nearly same except that they give slightly better placement package to dual degree student.

@Mohan:

Q. Can i know about the stats?
A. What kind of statistics?

Q. and also dual degree seats are filled after b. tech seats are filled,but stats say opp. that they get good placements(by iit kanpur).
why is it so?

A. Dual degree seats are filled afterwards as students don't want to spend 5 years (one extra year). Also, dual degree is integrated B Tech and M Tech, which means one has to do research for one year which all students may not like.

Q. If a guy is engineer (B Tech) and also holding a masters degree, he/she is better than a student having B tech degree and hence the placement stats.

A. It all depends on you as one has two options: 1) Spend one extra year and opt for dual degree, 2) Complete B tech and opt for higher studies (MBA or MS) in some US university. Research facilities are not at par US universities, so students tend to opt second option.

Q: m.tech placements are lower than b. tech ones but dual degrees get better placements....
A: M Tech students have to give GATE examination and for dual degree one give JEE. M Tech student might not have done B Tech from some reputed college. Compare following: a student with both B Tech and M Tech from IIT, and a student from not-so-good college and M Tech from IIT. If you have a company, which guy will you hire?


Q. please tell me why is it so and also advice me to which to choose between the two!
A: What are two? B tech/ Dual or B tech/ M tech?

If it is B tech/Dual: I personally believe B tech is better course as research facilities are not pretty good. But if you are strongly inclined to a branch than Dual degree is not a bad option.

A.Though I am not studying in Chemical Engineering but I have worked in that department, so here are my perspectives:

Academics: I believe this department has amazing professors with very challenging syllabus, which of course you will enjoy if you like this branch.

Facilities: Labs are well-equipped, and has variety of labs including simulation lab for plant design etc.Let me know if you need any specific information. Regular seminars and conferences are organized.

Infrastructure: One of the biggest departments in IT-BHU. Please be specific else refer above mentioned facilities.

Career (placement and higher studies): Depends on you but it offer a great flexibility as good number of core companies visit campus including HUL which offers something around 16lpa. Many students opt for further studies.

Q. I would also appreciate if someone alumuni of the SAME course can give me his/her contact details.

If you are really focussed on clearing IAS than I think there is no need to change college.

But if you want a 'job security too' then you can opt for IT-BHU. Well personally I won't suggest the switch as 'two complete years' are on stake and college doesn't really matter for IAS (?). But check which branch is beneficial for IAS examinations. I think circuit branches have easy paper.

@ Pulkit:

I won't be able to answer all of you question but will try answer some.

A1: Biochemical: Related to study of molecules related to biology especially chemistry of their. This branch will be more into research. Eg: growing cell culture (?), developing biochemicals etc.

Bioengineering: application of engineering to biochemicals, may be like studying their properties so that one can tailor them. I know some courses of bio-engg are related to electrical engg.

Please don't take this in reference or in relation to the course being taught.

A2: No idea as in my time there was no second counseling. Someone please help him on this.

A3: All mass recruiters and open-to-all companies. I believe these branches are good for research and many students end up in good universities in US for MS rather than opting for job. Some companies with eletrical as core hire them too.

A4: It will be done on the basis of : 1) No. of seats not filled in a branch. 2) Your rank. 3) Your choice sheet.

A5: Yes. A dual degree student can only change his/her branch in dual only and same for B tech.

A6: No idea.

A7: I believe bio-chemical, engg et al are pretty good branch. I am more into research so I know the importance of biology. In fact people with degrees in these branches are proficient in both, basic engg. principles and biology, and now a day interdisciplinary work has become essence of research and biology is very important. Researcher try to mimic natural compounds, shape, morphology etc.

Thanks a lot sir.
One more querry:
Is there any internal sliding when the session(first year) starts?
or it is only after first year?
If there is anything else related to branch change then please let me know that as well.

If someone is interested in higher studies then biochemical or bioengineering @itbhu is fine..else he should be prapered to join tcs/wipro etc. These departement is still like some traditional indian universities department and just to compare, faculty of science in bhu (outside IT) has better faculty than these two department.

Only 1 batch of engineering physics has passed out. Again this branch is good for higher studies and passed out students is joining RPI (US), NUS etc.

Mathematics & computing has placement compared to CS & is really good branch (placement as well as higher studies).

Regarding "chances in the second round of IIT counselling?" one can get a rough idea from the following link..

Sir,
You said that half of civil guys go to softwares. But, is their candidature equally strong as the ones who have studied computers only all the 4 years.

Also, if I am unable to change the branch and remain with civil only, how can i get a coaching to compete with the software guys in placements.....?

you dont need to get train your self to get in s/w. just maintain you mark there. rest will take care automatically. If you are at IT-BHU you should not take tension of JOb you are going to be india's premium college. So if you have interest to go in s/w just focus on aptitude and communication skills. No need to attend any software training course that will be really insult of 'I'IT-BHU

what is the difference between the hostel life of all old iits and it bhu?

July 2, 2010 8:24 AM
 rshanky said:

some facts:
Every year, at least 1 or 2 out of TCS/wipro/cognizant etc (called MASS RECRUITER) visit ITBHU and offer placement to 100+ student at a package of 3 to 3.5 lpa. For getting into them..one doesn't need to do something special. (But students from some private college also easily get this type of job.)

The better half of nearly all the branches gets good package.

cs,electrical, electronix, mechanical, maths and computing, chemical guys have more opportunities

civil, ceramic, metallurgy have slightly less opportunities.
For mining engg...Coal India limited recruits more than half of branch. but one needs to check working condition dere....

Biochemical, biomedical, industrial chemistry, Material science and engineering, engineering physics...all r new branch and only 1 batch has passed out. they r either going for higher studies or joining mass recruiter.

This is a rough placement scenario in itbhu. Ultimately it depends on one's performance during the 4/5 year in college.

@ animesh sir

sir , as observed from the curriculum of courses of iit's and it-bhu the one at iit's seem to be a lot more flexible than those at it-bhu.also the work load in the fourth year is quite low so that one can find time to prepare for competitive exams.
ex. the btech metallurgy course at roorkee has only 2-3 courses in addition to a project for the final year while the courses at it bhu have at least 4 subjects per semester of final year in addition to projects.also the no. of optional courses and electives offered sre quite less.
will the curriculum of courses at it-bhu change and become more flexible after its conversion to an iit?
will the alumni try for this to happen through the concerned authorities at it-bhu?
thanks.

Also, more importantly, they will look at what you did in your previous job :).

This is for Abhirup.

The short answer to your question is 'Do whatever is best in the long run'. DTU is definitely a good school and so is ITBHU. Everyone is ITBHU is admitted through IIT-JEE and these are students who want to make it big in this world. There is a contagious zeal and enthusiasm which motivates others and forces them to explore this world out of their comfort zone.

Metallurgical Engineering department at ITBHU is one of the finest departments (I am 2002 Metallurgical engineering graduate). The department enforces discipline and is led by the best academicians in the institute.

Students from all branches at ITBHU have succeeded and ruled the corporate world in India and abroad. Many of the students went on to pursue MS/MBA from top schools across the globe. If you have such inclinations then ITBHU should be your choice.

Response to questions on Hostel Life

Hostels do not make the institute... students do! Hostels at ITBHU are not 5-star luxury hostels and were constructed decades back (with new funding this might change soon) but I believe this should not influence anyone's decision of joining ITBHU or any other institute. What really matters is who will be residing next door to you and it shouldn't surprise you that he might be an ambitious lad who might become a CEO of a company in due time.

As in any college, there will be a group of students who want to be
1. Software engineers or
2. Pursue higher studies in engineering (MS/PhD)
3. Pursue MBA
4. Venture into some start up.
5. Join their respective field such as chemical, metallurgical etc

You will always find many students who share your dream and this is what matters most. And ofcourse there are scores of alumni who are willing to help you out when you need help.

if you want to stick with mining branch in future then there is lot of scope abroad as well as in india. You can go for MS outside of india and then can touch sky in geo physics, rock mechanics, exploration and all other fields of mining. If you are in india i would say M-tech would not be good idea.

You can go for
1)s/w, analytics or financial services jobs in india
2) go for MBA in top insti in india
3) Go for MS at USA university
4) Civil services

There are several opportunities to pursue your hobbies while at ITBHU. These have been several cases where aficionados decided to 'put in place' some facility which was missing. Several of us back in early 2000 erected badminton court in the hostel and played religiously. There are student groups for virtually any kind of inclinations you might have.

And yes, we are here to help... we have been there in your shoes and someone helped us as well.

This is the latest updates from itbhu. Even 5th/4th year student is not getting single room. The administration is telling d students to sign an affidavit that they will not protest.

In reality,Apart from the ITBHU fame and placemnt (mainly to circuit branch) everything is worst in itbhu.

@ Mr. Amonymous
I totally disagree with you. Yes, I do agree that there are various aspects of ITBHU that need a sea change, including administration. But you can definitely not assert that the faculty of NITs are better than ITBHU. How many NITs have you seen? How many NITians have you met till now? Probably those who are your friends, wrote JEE with you, but could not qualify. I am sure there is a huge difference between their perspective towards life and our perspective towards life. Check the departments at NITs, we have many more PhD faculties than them. And let me tell you something, and this is my personal experience. If faculty are not teaching you people properly, then to some extent you are also responsible for that. I cannot believe that people who are writing papers in national and international journals cannot teach. Yes, someone cannot teach very well, but they cannot be apathetic to students, unless students drive them towards that. How much respect you people show towards your faculty? You guys think these people who earn few thousand rupees in a month and so they are dumb *** and you guys are the smartest in the world!! I bet, you live in a fools paradise. Professors do not pay attention towards students because students do not take interest in studies. In one of the forums, a student said that professors do not allow them to work with them on projects. A PROFESSOR replied, students think they are very smart. They do something absurd and think they can fool the professor. Why should a professor waste his time with such, so called "smart' students? And he is absolutely correct.
Regarding facilities, ITBHU is definitely seriously lagging behind many institutions in terms of infrastructure. But what our makes institute ITBHU are the students, faculty and alumni. We have also seen the sorry state of infrastructure at ITBHU.Also, let me tell you that you guys are much better off. Yes, in our time although we got one person to stay in a room from second year, but beyond that everything else you people are having a plus. And what do you do in the room? Playing games? Chatting with friends? How many hours do you study? I don't think for those activities a room just for you will make any big difference. I have also stayed with my friend in one room for two years when I was working. I never felt that as an obstacle in anything I wanted to do.
Lastly, if you have some friend in NIT who sang a beautiful song about their infrastructure and faculty in front of you, then learn from him. Whole universe knows that's not true, but still he is faithful and respectful towards his institute by not highlighting the weaknesses of his institute in front of you, rather he told you the strengths of his institute, even if some of them may not be true.

Good luck.

@abhijeet sir..
You might be right that i hv not seen many nits but i have been to their webpages.
In india only iits, IISc and a few more institute (csir etc), imparts quality phd and how many professors in itbhu is from such background. There r many faculties (around 20%) who has less than 5 publications in total, including those during phd. Forget the impact factor (1 or 2 is enough for them). There r so many journals these days..that it is said now that if one could write a paper..he can get it published. Many proff gets a salary of 80K+ and does nothing..literally nothing In INDIA one who has nothing to do gets enrolled into Phd and once enrolled they come out out with phd. and majority of teachers in bhu is from such background.i hv seen quality of phd in bhu, the top ranked university of India. And I need not tell the fact that a even a good Master degree holder can b a better faculty than a phd holder. This is d case with BITS PILANI. Its the quality which matters not the qunatity. I have seen some proff..taking sm papers from 1970s, modifying it and publishing it in another general. People in one of the department was telling sm student " u will get good job but we hv to remain here" just imagine....
Nanoscience & technology center..the latest facility. i hv worked with a top faculty in this center..but I know the condition there.

i do regret that i have to write smthing of this type here and even i dont want to write. But its the truth. i dont intend to heart anyone

July 6, 2010 5:24 PM
 Abhijeet Ghoshal said:

Sure you are right. Most of the faculty at ITBHU has either 0 or less then 5 journal papers. Even the ones they have are of very low quality. I do know few people in ITBHU who are really good. Some have retired, some are still there. I don't know about the new recruits, but I am sure some of them will come out well. I also agree that IITs have better faculty than ITBHU. Again by IIT I mean the old ones. However, even in IITs there are faculty about whom students complain. I have met couple of such ex-IITians. So no place is perfect. Even here in USA, you can get people who just don't work. But in USA, at least those people are kicked out. In IITs there is an evaluation system, that keeps faculty on tab. But I do not agree that EVERY SINGLE FACULTY in ITBHU is bad. You may not have got exposure to the good faculty, but I am sure it is not in general. I am also sure about the faculty at NITs who literally have no publications at all. But there also, some people do work. However, ITBHU is better than them. Well, when I was at ITBHU, I also had quite a bit of mentality and thinking like you. But once I came out and started PhD, I did realize some of the names from ITBHU. Also, those faculty about whom I am talking about like VKS from mech, have collaborations with institutions from Germany, which is not a joke.
Infrastructure? Yes, ITBHU has a lot to catch up. But even without facilities, people have done quite a bit of a job. Like the hydrogen engine project (that is done primarily in BHU, but students of IT also can get involved), school of material sciences are few examples. Yes, you can also see what they could not do and complain about it. Or you can see what you can do and get out of it and build on it. I have seen both types of people. People with the attitude as former do not go long, but the ones with the later type has achieved institutions like MIT, Berkeley, Stanford and UCLA.

I m really thankful to you for such a long and useful writeup. there r some good faculties no doubt abt it. I hv attended the lectures of proff D. Pandey and some other too. I had met proff B B bansal.They were really inspiring. Buts its d other half (major half) which causes the problem. majority of them r not supportive.

Every system has its good and bad. You are right that we shd look for d good thing and I have always tried ..i m out of india on a summer intern, hv maintained a good cgpa. but the problem is institute/administration is not supportive. I am about to get a publication here in 2 month while in itbhu i tried hard but could not do anything becuase they were not supportive.
Now they r trying to block the M.tech scholarship (for GATE qualified candidates, 5th yr)and telling us to sign an affidavit so that we cannot protest. we cannot go and fight in the court.
hope there will b positive outcomes.

@ Anonymous:

In certain ways life at IT is not easy especially when one want to do new things. One faces a lot of criticism and obstacles (deliberately set up by some people). But I still believe that one learns more than what would learn at any other IITs. TO give some examples:

1. They don't support our fests but we work even harder (than IIT students) to organize them, though we are not able to do that on same level as IITs but people involved learn a lot.

2. We don't have good infrastructure and research facilites: yea but if one is dedicated he can learn a lot. @ anonymous: you are getting a publication in two months because you have been to IT-BHU where you have struggled a lot and now that is paying. I am also outside and there are some students from IITs which are not working as hard as I am simply because they are not that desperate or hungry for success as we are!

3. You say faculty do not teach well, I don't agree completely. I had a smiliar thought for initial one and half year but after that I really started listening carefully and pushed my teachers and I believe I have learnt and better when i comes to basics then IIT students, which is clear when I discuss some issues with them.

I strongly recommend students to come at IT-BHU as BHU is a big universities and you can not get same environment anywhere else. Of course one can give up here and live a simple life or he works hard and make it big. Just an example:

Two of the big profs in the fields of nanotechnology are from IT-BHU (Prof Ajayan and Prof Lakhtakia) probably because they were more hungry when they left from here.

@ anonymous: Just think, there willl be more students working in your lab but they probably not getting any papers but you are and try to find reasons and role played by your institute in it?

@ All incoming students: gear up guys! Don't work hard and you will be same as simple crowd or work-hard and you will be at the top. IT-BHU provides both opportunities!

@ anonymous on protest issue: Increasing the number of students was not the decision of IT-BHU Administration but goverment of India. IT-BHU admin can not make hostels in a say or two (which our protests will force) so i think they have to be tough.

But i agree making us sign on affidavit is not a right thing to do. They should try to explain us.

It's great that you have worked hard and it finally paid of for you. I am happy that you are utilizing your time in a constructive manner even when you have so many hurdles. But here is my (free) advice, try to look up to things. If you start counting problems, they will be endless. I know that there are uncountable problems in ITBHU, but I don't recall that they have stopped anyone from achieving anything if they have wanted it hard. Counting negatives will only create anger and hatred in you, and believe me that will never help you. Also, when you will come out of the college, you will miss it. I like ITBHU now more than I used to like it when I was there.

"IT BHU will soon become an IIT"
but when will this 'soon' come?
i have been listening this for last 5 years nad yet it is 'soon'!
last year too issues and forums like this were raised but what was the outcome?
i had a chat with students out there is "IT BHU"
who themselves don't believe this
and say "IT BHU kabhi IIT nahi ban sakta,
ye kabhi matt sochna ki aisa hoga",
what is this ?
The students in the institute have faith in the alumni and this ideology then why should others?
also they are frustrated with the system and administration,they say that they have qualified JEE but this is acknowledged by none.They didn't get that respect "we are below IIT and above NIT,
so where do we stand?
even a student who gat rank very low and pursuing pulp and paper from roorkee or MSc. lokks at us as inferior."
this is quite scary for the freshers.............

@Rahul,
Choosing an institute simply based on coaching institutes around it would be grossly unwise. If MBA is your thing, then study at a good engineering college then go to USA/Europe. Do MBA from a top-10 school worldwide. IITs have worldwide reputation and will help you in future. Why bind your future to a CAT exam that is four years from now, which you are not even guaranteed to clear because of extreme competition. I was not able to clear CAT in my first attempt, but subsequently did my MBA at a worldwide top-5 school in USA (where people don't even know what IIMs are, but are very familiar with IITs).

July 7, 2010 5:28 PM
 Devender said:

@ Mukul: Well I believe I am not very appropriate to answer this as I am not in Mech. but I have worked a lot with seniors of Mech. Mechanical has the most challenging curriculum and one has to study very hard relative to other branches. Fourth year is placement time and from what I heard from mech seniors they used to say that number of classes are less in final year. So, I think one can manage IAS preparation. I remember one mech senior in fact preparing for IAS.

I would say, difficult relative to other branches but very much feasible if you are regular from day one.

yes, students do go for foreign internship from ITBHU at the end of their third year. I myself went for one.
But, most (some do industrial as well)of the foreign interns are in universities and u need to approach professors/univ by urself (which is true for all IITs), but if u r ready to work hard in contacting profs/univs, u will get a international intern with attractive stipends

Being parent of a last year ITian, I have been following this link regularly. When my Son was alloted BHU last year, Varanasi and BHU was a distant unknown place. Finally when we landed there, except the traffic and heat, everything elese was good. The BHU campus was excellent. The hostel, the mess, the cycle rikshaw everything lead to some kind of nostalgia.

When I see young children who have just finished plus 2 asking about pay packages, even before starting their university education, I feel very sad. I have one small advice to all of you. If your primary objective is to make money, you will not succeed. Be passionate in cherishing your interests or even hobbies and it will bring money to you at a later stage.

BHU is a great place and whether IT becomes IIT or not it will continue to be a great place provided the yougstars wish to make it one.

Enjoy the most precious period in life and make sure you make most out of it. Do not forget one thing - you are debted to 110 billion people for supporting your education. Please return something back to the nation.

Wish you all the best

@all future aspirants
I will advice dont be too bothered with post engineering avenues. At this moment, you people have very limited exposure and four years of IT-BHU will expose you to gamut of opportunities. Dont be too fixated with MBAs/MS/IAS etc etc, just come to IT-BHU with an open mind and then follow your dreams. You never know what will you excite u in future: a aspiring IIM student may suddenly realise he wants to go to MIT for a phd, or join a startup or start his own venture.
I totally agree with Mr. Perothyll, dont over stress yourself, exposure in class 12th is nothing as compared to experience you will get at IT-BHU, just come with an open mind and relish your time at IT.
I assure you, you will fall in love with IT-BHU by the time you leave it.

If this is so urgent, how about emailing/calling the department at ITBHU?

@Bhavuk: No idea, but their placement is still pretty good, so I hear. In any case, the packages will be different in 4 years. If you study hard in MEC/Civil at ITBHU, you will get a good job.

@Srikanth: I would expect that the TPO would make an extra effort based on the number of students to be placed, and the economic climate, when the time of placements come. We alumni are also in touch to help with campus visits. Placements should be good in the future too, provided you do your bit -- study hard and prepare well.

also, if you are very determined to change your branch, you get a chance at the end of 1st year if you have good grades in your 1st year courses!

@Mr. Himanshu Giri
Congratulations, for your son has qualified so many national exams. As per my experience, you should first of all not think about NIT Calicut, given that your son can join ITBHU and BITS Pilani. I cannot suggest anything for sure out of these two but can give you some guidelines.
ITBHU- M.Tech. Phy:
This line is new, but as per my experience extremely versatile. Basically, physics is applicable to any branch of Engineering. As far as I can see, if he wants to pursue higher studies in Eng (CS, Electronics, Electrical, Mechanical, Material Science or Civil), he can do that. Please note, having M.Tech. in Physics does not mean he cannot get admission in mainstream Engg branches for MS/PHD in US. It is more a matter of fit and his M.Tech. courses/project.
For MBA(IIM), one extra year may feel a waste of time. But I think, one is not a big bet. He has 30 more years to work, even after giving one extra year for M.Tech.
Brand value: I feel it is almost same as BITS Pilani in India and abroad. However, sometimes I feel BITS Pilani is more known to non-Indian Professors in US as compared to IT-BHU. But I am not sure about it, other people may confirm.
BITS-B.Tech. Mech:
Will save one year of study. However, I feel from higher studies perspective, this line may cause problems. Changing to other live branches (CS, Electrical, Material Sciences) will be difficult.
I believe, Mechanical is more of an internal satisfaction than anything else. This branch as such is stagnant, and has far lesser scope of research as compared to CS, Electrical Eng. Getting jobs in US may be difficult after doing a PhD in Mechanical/Aerospace Eng.
MBA(IIM): The effect will be same as of ITBHU.

I am a mechanical Engineer from ITBHU, and I have seen so many Mechanical Enggs PhDs who find getting a job is difficult in this area. I have changed my field to PhD in Management Sciences (Business School, Yes that's possible too!)
If I were you, given what are the trends I see today, I will go for Eng Physics. After looking at the syllabus, I feel it is more suitable for research in many high profile branches like CS, EE, Nano sciences etc.
Also, we never know where your son will find himself after five years. He may be interested in higher studies. Eng Physics will only help him in that. If he wants to do MBA, I don't think it will hurt him at all. Higher degree is always a little bit of plus, even in MBA admission. One extra year is not very difficult to make up. I hope God will give him enough brain to plan his future path, so that he can make good use of his one extra year for his future.

 IIT Kanpur just passed out said:

SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT READ THIS ARTICLE AS IT SEEMS TO BE TOO LONG BUT IF U WANNA KNOW THE REAL TRUTH ABT ISM THEN IT'S HERE :

ISM doesn't need to get status of IIT . Actually, the problem is that ISM had a long history of excellence in earth science department so most of the people think that other courses which are taught there are not as good as earth science courses nd some of the NITS . so I can't blame people's thinking. many of the companies still think that ISM is today also an earth science college(as per my professor). i also can't blame companies' thinking. Since ISM has just established other dept. so it needs time to settle, but still the level of teaching nd labs of other dept. is quite high. That’s why it’s electronics dept.-2nd best in all east and north east zone . Moreover, cse dept. nd electrical dept. - 4th best. of course the avg . package is about 5.6 lakhs but the growth nd promotion rate in companies(they have joined) is much higher than any of the NITS or other private colleges. many might think that this is due to ISM tag. But this is only due to excellent teaching dept. nd fantastic facilities at laboratories THIS IS ALSO THE CASE WITH IIT’s ALUMNI AND PRESENT IITIANS. I think what students need is good teaching facilities with a tag of a reputed college.

NOW FOR THOSE WHO THINK ISM IS A JOKE:
1. IT WAS OFFERED THE TAG OF '"IIT" IN YEAR 2000 BUT DUE TO STRONG REPUTED ALUMNI PRESSURE IT COULD NOT BECOME IIT.
2. RICHEST ALUMNI IN TERMS OF MONEY.
3. ONE OF THE TWO ENGINEERING COLLEGES IN INDIA WITH 100% DOCTORATES IN FACULTY.
4. One of my seniors who got ISM after JEE- 1998 is in THOMSON REUTERS(the giant and invincible king in IT sector nd listed in top 5 companies of the world who take freshers in just count of 1 or 2 from all over India) is now earning a handsome salary of about 1.5 lakhs per month
5. Taking admission through one of the toughest exams all over the world.

BUT YES IF ISM GETS A TAG OF AN IIT THEN IT WILL BE GOOD FOR IT AS MORE COMPANIES WILL COME TO KNOW THAT ISM IS NO MORE AN EARTH SCIENCE COLLEGE

 Srini said:

@Shubham: I did metallurgy from BHU in the 90s. Practically, I don't think, there is much real difference with the Materials Science offered in other IITs. You do cover basic materials science in detail (diffusion/kinetics, thermodynamics, defects & dislocations, solid state, etc). Ofcourse, how much you learn depends on your motivation, and the assigned teacher for that class.

Clearly, there is a difference in scope between electrical eng (EE) and material science (MSE). With MSE or meta, your options if you want to work in same industry are limited. That is there are only a handful of steel plants. So you have to move to the corresponding city. In contrast, such a change is not required with EE.

There may be some preference in hiring towards MSE against in meta if hired by semicond industry. But I do not know if that is a big enough in india (most of the big fabs are in Taiwan). Also, the interesting jobs in semiconductor industry require higher degree.

If you plan to study further, both options are good. However, EE schools are larger (&numerous) and take more students, while the number of students graduating out with EE undergrad is also larger.

Options beyond grad school (~ 10 yrs in future) are hard to fathom now. Most of my classmates ended up in management or software, about 15% are in steel industry, and about 15% went into higher ed. This was pretty much self selection (i.e. everyone got what they wanted) rather than being limited by the institute or the branch.

IIT?


Note: This page will be frequently updated to reflect the latest news. For earlier updates, click here.

___________________________________


This page will contain updates from May 20, 2010 onwards.

Update 1: [May 20, 2010]: The cabinet note for conversion of IT-BHU to IIT has been prepared by MHRD. More details are available on this report in the Chronicle May 2010 edition.

According to the above report:

The cabinet note was prepared by HRD Ministry and sent to Legal Affairs of the Law ministry for suggestions. The Law ministry has sent the file back to MHRD with the suggestions/ comments to be addressed. The main objection was due the fact that MHRD has proposed in the cabinet note to include setting up of medical colleges by IITs (see news item below). This has been objected by the Law Ministry, which has asked for a review of cabinet note. According to current set up, Health Ministry is responsible for supervising setting up of medical colleges and running of medical courses (MBBS, etc.)

After incorporating the suggestions of Law ministry, the cabinet note will be sent to the Law ministry for clearance. After that, the note will be distributed to several ministries for their comments and suggestions to be incorporated in the revised note. The revised note will be forwarded to PMO (Prime Minister’s Office) and then to the Cabinet Secretariat for Cabinet meeting.

Cabinet will review the file and send its recommendation with a cabinet note to CCPA (Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs). CCPA will have any last-minute check on file before sending it to Parliament for inclusion in the Bill.

Parliament will then introduce the IT Amendment Bill and approve it for amendment of IT Act.

The passing of amendment of IT Act will depend upon the approval of cabinet note by the cabinet. After approval of the cabinet note, it will take about a month to complete the other formalities before the IT Bill is tabled in the parliament. Depending upon the time taken for clearing of cabinet note, the IT Bill can be expected to be introduced in the next parliament session (July-August), or later.

We will keep our readers updated with the latest happenings on this end. We are tracking this matter closely, and ask you for your patience.

 Anonymous said:

Hi all:

Sub: Clarification about IIT conversion
It seems there is still confusion about the proposed conversion of our institute to IIT. I wish to clarify the situation as follows:

a) Our institute is included in the list of institutes under cabinet note. The list includes 8 new IITs and our institute. The cabinet note is a voluminous document of several hundred pages long, and a group of our faculty was at the HRD ministry office for several weeks to help prepare the document.

b) The amendment to IT Act was supposed to be passed by the Parliament in last summer session, i.e. by May 7. However, currently there is an issue between HRD ministry and Health ministry about allowing IITs to start medical course, which is under Health ministry so far. Once the issue is resolved, then IT Act will be passed within a month of approval of cabinet note.

c) The next session of the parliament is monsoon session from end of July to August. If the cabinet note is approved by July end, then IT Act will be passed in the monsoon session, otherwise it will almost certainly to be passed in October session of Parliament.

d) If the IT Act is amended by end of August by the parliament, the current pass out (2010 batch) will likely get IIT-BHU certificate. Thus all incoming students joining the institute this year will no doubt get IIT tag. IT Act, 1961 as posted on IIT-Bombay website:

http://www.iitb.ac.in/legal/IITsAct.pdf

e) The dilemma of students/parents is understandable. According to their thinking, if they join IT-BHU and the institute does not become an IIT, they are doomed. They are also doomed if they do not join IT-BHU and pick up any other branch at one of the IITs and then IT-BHU is converted to IIT. It is up to students and parents to use their judgment about selecting institute.

f) Please note that 2 years ago the situation was different. In March 2008, Prime Minister announced “in principle” to convert our institute to IIT. Now the situation is different, as most of paper work, including preparing cabinet note is done.

We provide regulation update on IIT-conversion news in our monthly online newsmagazine, chronicle:

www.itbhuglobal.org/chronicle

Please note all info is taken from authorized sources (VC, Director, faculty who worked on conversion, alumni who met MHRD, etc.) and it is crosschecked before publishing.

From above discussion, can we conclude that now it bhu has the same status as the new iits..?

 mayank said:

The status of bhu is higher than new iit's. the facilities and alumini of bhu is far higher than new ones andas above said ,students taking admissions this year will surely get iit tag

June 8, 2010 12:46 AM
 Anonymous said:

@mayank

sorry im not asking in that respect.!!

i meant that...
new iits are also not approved by cabinet and parliament , they are listed in iit amendment act..also according to above clarification by yogesh sir it bhu is also listed along the new iits...so this means now itbhu is in same position of being iit as the new iits...
is it true..??

also,
new iits are now operating since 2 years, they have to give degree to their first batch 2 years from now , but they cant do so without modification of iit act in the parliament (true?)..so assuming the worst possible scenario that iit act is amended in 2012(it HAS to amended on or before 2012)..:
it implies..::
1) by any means itbhu will be iit by 2012.
2) even assuming worst scenario 2012 paasing out batch will get iit degree.(if u dig deep even 2011 pass out batch will get iit degree as convo happens a year later)
3) this year incoming batch will in any case get iit degree..!!

am i correct..??

June 8, 2010 1:50 AM
 anon said:

Absolutely correct and perfect analysis ! Go and get admitted into IT-BHU (IIT-BHU) this year...it is a deal for students this year. Next year, for the same rank it would be more or less impossible to get the same branch...

but according to sources from hrd ministry its 50-50 chances for it to become iit..in parliament it could be argued that what's the need of making one more iit when we already have 15..also if they had to take make it iit why did they make new iits why not first of all convert it-bhu to iit...

That is nothing but a rumour.

1. Note in first place that IT-BHU was supposed to be converted to IIT in principal in current 5 year plan. This was done after consulting cabinet itself. This information was also press released.Which means that Cabinet has no issues in IT-BHU to IIT conversion.

2. We have already got a clearance from Planning Commission, Law Ministry and HRD Ministry and Finance Ministry(We have already been allocated budget for the conversion); These are all that have a dealing with IT-BHU -> IIT Conversion.

Regarding whether someone joins IT-BHU or not, is all upto his own volition. We guys are very successful in career even when IT-BHU is not IIT.

i had a chat with students out there is "IT BHU"
who themselves don't believe this
and say "IT BHU kabhi IIT nahi ban sakta,
ye kabhi matt sochna ki aisa hoga",
what is this ?
The students in the institute have faith in the alumni and this ideology then why should others?
also they are frustrated with the system and administration,they say that they have qualified JEE but this is acknowledged by none.They didn't get that respect "we are below IIT and above NIT,
so where do we stand?
even a student who gat rank very low and pursuing pulp and paper from roorkee or MSc. lokks at us as inferior."

If u ask me whether it would happen in this session - then seriously speaking Nobody knows, this is INDIA. I can only say that it should happen by the end of this year. We should have been IIT-BHU by now but things have been delayed because of IIT's ambition for starting Medical Courses.

Regarding whether it would happen- Yes would happen for sure, And there is no room for worry as we are in the same boat as the new IITs are.

BHU act modificattion would happen but in a different way to save time and lot of unnecessary steps.

i have been hearing of this conversion crap for almost 2 yrs now. I in my naiveness went for the protest. Sooner we cope up with the fact that were never gonna be converted the better it is for us. India's 6th best engg college doesnt have a proper internet facility, wi-fi, 4th yearites live double, registration through a D.D. and a library with no bar codes and opens from 10 am to 8pm. A change in attitude is required rather than blaming delay in conversion for our present situation. We should admit our facilities are not even 50 pc of those provided in IITs( I stayed there for 2 months). We donot have an AC seminar hall what to say of anything else. I fear the day a common test for IITs and Nits which may even degrade whatever reputation weve got

You are right. Precisely for that reason (facilities are not even 50% of IITs), we need the conversion since that will bring us money.
Secondly, yes we do need a change in attitude, however, part of the reason is money again. How will they pay for the maintenance of AC lecture halls, when they can barely maintain what's there.
Conversion will happen. Govt. has gone too far with this, but you have to realize, this is not USA. This is India and the system is like an elephant moving.
Last, but not the least, this is a public forum. I know you feel frustrated, but using a decent language (conversion crap) will surely be appreciated.

As it was informed by Animesh that passing of amendment of IT Act will depend upon the approval of cabinet note by the cabinet. After approval of the cabinet note, it will take about a month to complete the other formalities before the IT Bill is tabled in the parliament. Depending upon the time taken for clearing of cabinet note, the IT Bill can be expected to be introduced in the next parliament session (July-August), or later.
Since now the dates of the monsoon session of Parliament is finalized as 26 July to 27th August. , can anyone (Animesh/Yogesh)please update us about it. Weather it would be possible to introduce the IT BILL in this session.

11th Plan edu budget may be halved

Hemali Chhapia | TNN

Mumbai: Several ambitious projects launched by the UPA government under the 11th Five Year Plan may get delayed or axed as large spending cuts are likely to come into force. Thanks to the fact that the economy did not grow at the expected rate of over 9%, most ministries are gearing up to shelve some of their projects.
For instance, the Planning Commission, which conducted a review of the 11th Five Year Plan (2007-2012), is likely to slash budgetary allocations for higher and technical education by nearly half the original amount. This will have to be approved by the National Development Council, which is meeting on Saturday.

Unspent funds led to cuts in higher edu allocations


Mumbai: The Planning Commission’s move to slash budgetary allocations for higher and technical education by nearly half will have to be approved by the National Development Council, which is meeting on Saturday to discuss the midterm appraisal of the 11th Plan.
A Planning Commission source said: “The decision to cut funds was taken because the money allotted for the first three years of the Plan period has not been spent. Despite ambitious announcements, most schemes have not taken off.”
The fourth year of the 11th Plan has just begun. Of the 84,000 crore allotted for higher and technical education in the plan, the ministry has not even spent 30,000 crore. “The infrastructural development of many of the new Indian Institutes of Technology and the Indian Institutes of Management has not taken off,” said an official in the Union HRD ministry.
This is the point the commission is emphasising on why it plans to cut funding. The midterm review of the 11th Plan revealed most projects had not kept up with dates. Funds have been grossly underutilised.
Already, the finance ministry has pushed back setting up 20 new Indian Institutes of Information Technology to the 12th Plan. Heads in the just setup central universities say recruitments have been stalled, too. “Spending under school education has a better track record; that won’t be hacked much,” a commission source said.
Justifying the cutbacks, a commission member explained: “One must also keep in mind that the aggregate gross budgetary support was based on the assumption that India would grow at an average of 9%. But that was not the case.”
By the time the document for the 11th Plan was released in 2008, the global slowdown had hit India and annual growth fell to 6%, throwing most projections off track. Now, the Planning Commission estimates that average growth in the 11th Plan will be 7.7-7.8%.

SLOW SPEND


In absolute terms, Centre spent 2.75 lakh crore on education during the 11th Plan compared to 62,238 crore in the previous Plan
Of that, 1.25 lakh crore was for elementary education; 53,000 crore for secondary education; 6,000 cr for adult education; 84,000 cr for higher & technical education
With the fourth year of the Plan (2010-11) beginning, not even 30,000 cr has been spent on higher & technical education
Allocation for that section is now likely to be slashed by 40,000 crore

Dear Anonymous

Pls do not panick. In past IT BHU had already rejected the very idea of getting a Tag of Institute of National Importance. That was the reason that all the studunts, alumni and faculty members joined hand together and fought for getting deserving IIT tag. As for as news article in Dainik Jagran is concerend, it mentions the name of hon'ble Shri. K. Sibbal, who himself has ensured the conversion during his convocation speech at IT BHU. Nothing to worry :-).

Dear all:

Before posting any negative comments, please remember that no one [absolutely no one] can tell you with 100% certainty _when_ any given law will be passed in the Indian Parliament (or any parliament, for that matter). We all have studied probability, so please do not assume that this very real-world issue is deterministic. There are just too many variables involved, which I assume you appreciate, given most [all?] of the commentors here are Engineers or engineering students.

What we _do_ know is that the file is moving. That there is a clear interest in the ministry to convert IT-BHU to IIT. [See the PIB link posted in the comments above for reference.]. People from very high up have confirmed that they are interested in the conversion.

Will the conversion happen tomorrow? In this session? Frankly, I cannot say. But then, you cannot say that about _any_ bill in the proposed agenda. Such is the nature of the process.

In summary, I request all our readers to be mature about the realities involved here, and avoid making irresponsible anonymous outburst-filled comments.

Hi Anonymous,

One need to understand how the decisions are taken at National level. This is a time taking process and requires patient. There are too many parameters involved, that need to be considered. Please do not spread these negative emotional outbursts on such communities . This definitely shows how much emotionally close you are with this conversion. But still keep the negative thoughts up to you only. Think about the people like Yogesh, Animesh and many others who are consistently trying their best for this conversion since last several years . It's because of our Alumni's collective efforts that we are able to reach so much close to this IIT tag. These people are still maintaining the high spirit and putting there efforts in every possible way. Please encourage them to achieve this prestigious Goal. Please try to understand the complexity of the process involved.

@Mr. Srinivas,
As per the news we got till now, the conversion was part of the IT Amendment Act itself. Your statement suggests it is not. This is quite disappointing as the chances become very slim if the Govt. does not pass the conversion bill along with other IITs. How much willingness will be left with the Govt. to convert one institute? Nothing is at stake if the institute is not converted. On the other hand, Govt. must hurry to provide the legal status to other IITs as the oldest batch is about to pass out in next few years. Also, it questions the past statements provided by our alumni who are involved in this process.

It is really surprising to crave madly for the IIT tag instead of developing a sense of BHU hood in our minds. We should not forget the illustrious BHU brand is highly applauded. We should all put our heads together to carve a parallel institution in place of getting a brand name. By madly chasing for IIT tag we are clearly reflecting our in-built inferiority. This inferiority has drained much of our time and creative energies. Even if we get IIT tag do we not become the tail-end of all the existing IITs? Step-motherly treatment can not be ruled out. After all by spreading this news that we will get better students and better faculty with the upgradation simply lowers our entity. After all a guy in computers, electronics, electrical, mechnicalis far more superior than Civil, paer & pulp, textiles, chemical, mining or metallurgy in any of the IITs. Our faculty is also as luminous as in IITs. We are severly lacking self pride and under estimate the revered Banaras Hindu University; a unique university of its kind. There are many IITs but there is only one Banaras Hindu University, only one Oxford, cambridge, Harvard etc. Let us believe in our own brand and make it the best.

You are right. There is only one Banaras Hindu University. But the fact is, sufficient funding to develop high class infrastructure is made available only to IITs, not to Universities. And please do not compare BHU with Cambridge, Harvard. They just cannot be compared. Its better to accept the fact that we are behind IITs (the old ones I mean) in terms of infrastructure. We would have been very happy if funding like theirs could be available without IIT tag, but that's not possible.

It is not merely funding but the mind-set and work-culture which makes the institutions. Funding follows. For example, there are many guys from rual areas with no amenities, who have cleared IIT-JEE exams. I am myself an example and in my batch not less than 80 guys in the institute came from such areas, which are even today not well equipped with the basic infrastucture ; water, electricity, roads, communication etc. Going by the logic of funding means generating infratructural facilities. By that logic the unfortunate guys from very backward and poorly facilitated areas would neber have been able to compete with heavily armed urban guys gifted with all the facilities. Even to date the eminence of such guys clearing the JEE can not be negated. Thank God that BHU is not so poor as explained in the example. BHU has a tall stature and huge infrastructural set-ups, which need to be used with open minds. If we are capable, we generate our own funding.I happened to visit some of the Sciences Dept. They were state-of-art at that time itself (about 25 years back)within the same university set-up!!! It is sad to note that my alma-mater; the IT, BHU despite being so potent has lost the battle due to weakness in mind. We can not compete Harvard and Cambridge and Oxford, but why??? It is our weakness and diffidence.

Passing of IIT act without BHU conversion issue means no hope for IT BHU students who were trying hard to convert it into IIT. Actually hopes for conversion were lost when (i) VC opposed the conversion and put several conditions for conversion including Chairman post for him(ii) when Shri S N Upadhaya was not given extn. These were the clear cut indications that fate of IT BHU is in hand of few people. No concern what facilities students of IT BHU are getting. Concern is what facilities they are availing. I would not oppose many things that were said above but would say that if you want to get gold medal in Olympic u should have, apart from willingness to do extra, best equipments and environment to practice on. Otherwise results would be average. Facities in IITs are better in all ways over the IT BHU. Conversion was the only hope to revive our institute that we have lost.

Please have a look at the latest issue of the chronicle at http://www.itbhuglobal.org/chronicle/archives/2010/07/itbhu_to_iit_co_18.php

It clearly mentions "As stated in past issues, the Institutes of Technology Act, (IT Act) 1961 is expected to be amended in the parliament. The cabinet note prepared by HRD ministry includes 8 new IITs and conversion of our institute to IIT-BHU as well as several other issues.

It was stated in last issue that the main obstacle to the IT Bill is due the fact that MHRD has proposed in the cabinet note that IITs can start the medical courses and award medical degrees. It seems that this issue is now resolved and HRD ministry has taken an appropriate decision.

It is important to realize that our file on the conversion issue is alive and constantly moving. Presently all the preparation is going on for preparing the notes and arrangements for Cabinet Meeting. If the cabinet meeting is held within 10/15 days then the bill can be placed in the ensuing parliament session. Alumni, students, teachers and parents are in constant touch with the developments."

Many clauses are changed for incorporating an institutions. The amendment mentioned above is for something else.
I think we still have to have patience since so far only cabinet approval is obtained. Amendment of bill for incorporating the institutions is still far.
So wait.
For those who are asking for timelines, as Animesh said earlier, this world is not deterministic. Moreover, for the Govt. there are many other things of higher priority right now. Yes, I know it is frustrating that you had a mind made up for getting an IIT degree. But that piece of paper is not the whole world for you. Till now everyone of us have achieved a lot even without the IIT brand name. So that's not the end of the world. However, we still need to lobby and push for it to so that the process doesn't stop.

It takes the process, the bureaucrats, several weeks to further prepare/format the document for presentation in the parliament once it is approved by the cabinet. But, it is a sure shot approval in the parliament for these kind of bills/laws.

@Raj: Yes. We can have two IITs in 1 state. Our case is way beyond these (potential) roadblocks.

We all are thinking/assuming that it will be done. But no body knows what will exactly going to happen by 31st Aug.,10. Some students or our old alumni must approach HRD and meet Mr.Kapil Sibalji before this parliament season end. Otherwise we will again wait for the next session of Dec.,10.

If cabinet approval is done, then why it is not there on PIB(Cabinet decesion)? Probably cabinet is agreed with all the proposals and asked HRD to include few more as per HT news.

It is wastage of time to speculate about it. Let it take its own time. If its gonna happen it will. ITBHU or IITBHU doesn't make a difference after couple of years in Job or Masters....:):)

In what sort of a time frame does a bill like this(which shouldn't face opposition)gets passed?
Any chance of this thing being wrapped up in the current session? Otherwise we're going to have to wait till December.

we have heard that this bill contains IT BHU conversion proposal, so if this bill is passed it will mean that other 8 are offially IIT's but the IT BHU conversion process will have started . In order to IT BHU to become IIT , the BHU amendment act will have to passed, which I think will be passed simultaneously. Keeping fingers crossed for this whole thing. The sooner the better...

Well, it IS going to take few months coz Rajya Sabha will take up the Bill only in the Winter Session as on their last working day(Aug 31), they will be entertaining only their unfinished business of Monaday.
