IITBHU Global Editor @ 06:29 AM

This page has been created to answer the common questions we have noticed posted on this website by students who have qualified IIT-JEE 2011. We convey our congratulations to you, and aim to provide some answers here.
 

Some Rules:

  1. Be Respectful. Please note that we will not tolerate abusive language towards any individual or institute. Offending comments will be immediately deleted.
  2. Provide Context. Whether you are a fresher looking for advice, a current student, or an alumnus, providing basic info about yourself will help in giving context to your comments. It will also help us reach out to you if needed.

 

Will IT-BHU be converted to IIT? If so, When?
Yes, and very soon. The IIT bill has been passed by the Lok Sabha, and we expect it to be passed in the upcoming session of the Rajya Sabha.

Will I get an IIT degree if the conversion happens after I join?
Yes. The degree is given in the name used at the time of graduation.

I would love to be able to call/meet an ITBHU alumnus in my city (Bangalore, Delhi, Patna, etc.). Can someone help?
Absolutely! Please visit this link for email and phone numbers of ITBHU alumni who can help you with information and personal experience.

How are the opportunities for further growth (MBA at IIMs/ISB, Graduate Studies Abroad, etc) at IT-BHU?
As students and alumni will tell you, IT-BHU students go to a wide variety of institutions after graduation. These include top business schools and engineering schools for MS/MBA/PhD all over the world. The continuous chain ensures that during your life at IT-BHU, you can approach your seniors for advice on these matters.

How is the placement at IT-BHU? Will I get a good job if I join dept X?
The placement at IT-BHU is very good, as evidenced by the statistics at the official TPO page at http://www.itbhu.ac.in/tpo/index.php/current-placement.html. Statistics about individual departments' placements can be seen at their respective websites. Also, see the comments below for some pointers.

I have general JEE counceling questions, where do I go?
We recommend this excellent article by Prof. Dheeraj Sanghi of IIT Kanpur for high-level JEE counceling related questions. Of course, you are free to post your questions below also, which we will be happy to address.

I have a question not answered above. What do I do?
Please post a comment below, and we will try to answer it to the best of our capacities. Please be descriptive, and follow the rules mentioned above. Also, check out the questions from 2010 at this page

I just answered a question in the comments, and feel that the question is important enough to be included in the main body of this post. What should I do?
Great! Please send the question and answer in a camera-ready format to editor AT itbhuglobal.org, and we will include it in the post, with attribution of course :).

BK201 The figures change every year depending on the economic condition of the markets. But just to give you a pointer, I graduated in 2007 with a degree in Electrical Engg. and the average salary of our dept. was above 5.5 L/annum with a max of more than 10L/annum.

We host a multitude of firms from all the sectors such as core Computer Science Product Development firms e.g.Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Adobe, Oracle, NetApp etc., Core Engineering firms e.g. Shell, Hindustan Lever, Schlumberger, GE, N-Vidia etc., consulting firms such as EValueServe, FairIssac, I-Banks/Financial firms e.g. Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Deloitte etc.

The firms that I have mentioned above represent a sample of the set of firms that offer dream package(usually 7-10 L/annum or more) on Campus.

I wanted to know some details about BHU like the campus, quality of infrastructure, student composition (geography wise), placements, faculty quality, hostel facilities etc...particularly for Mechanical Engineering

May 27, 2011 10:55 PM
 Sumit Thakur EEE 2007 said:

@Nitish
Your question is very broad in scope :). I would focus on key takeaways on each of the topics you have mentioned.

Campus: IIT(BHU) is located at the end of campus of largest residential university in Asia. The campus is lush green and serene and exudes a sharp contrast with the hustle and bustle of Varanasi city. I would say, one would experience an ideal campus life.

Infrastructure/Hostels: In my times (2003-07) the institute was one of the very few institutes in country that boasted of single room accommodations for every student from second year on wards (first year being double seated). All hostels have LAN and WI-FI connectivity with in-built Mess and Canteens. But to be honest, with the new Quota rules exerting extra pressure on infrastructure, all the IITs including BHU are facing a challenging transient phase.

Student Composition: Just like for any IIT ,the national character of IIT-JEE ensures rich diversity in student body. The "Kholu"(Rankwise Opener) of my EE07 batch was from Rajasthan, the "Dhakkan"(Antonym of Kholu) was from Bihar, the branch topper was from Andhra and the fighter (that's how I would describe counter of topper :)) was from UP.

Placements: I have already answered this on this thread.

Faculty: The link below will give you a good idea of credentials of the faculty in mech. dept.

You can also surf the above link to get the details of course curriculum of Mech. Dept.

One word for people who are looking for joining BHU. I agree that salary is the first thing that comes to mind for deciding among options. However, I would suggest not to give too much importance to that. Rather, look at the atmosphere, facilities, course curriculum, flexibility in terms of pursuing the career and interests of your choice and options for extra co-curricular activities. I can bet, if you do things which you like and pursue that as your career, you will get very good, respectable job which will ultimately lead to satisfaction. In an extreme, someone may give you 4L/A for a clerical type of job (personal experience), but you will feel every morning that when will the day end. That's not what you would want ever.

Hi!
Though I know it is not very important,but just so that the fuchchas(wet behind the ear!)should know,the highest compensation package was 36 lacs/annum this year by an overseas company(Australian I believe,I'm not sure though).
That being said,being a current student I can only advice the freshers,that the insti is as good as any other IIT.I have travelled to a lot of them and I must tell you that each insti have their own positives and negatives.The IIT status will only make things better(not something like 'uplift a low standard').Personally,I don't even want some things to change.Please don't go on 'kahi suni baatein'.IT-BHU is one of the best in the country,and even the association it has with BHU has its own positives.Based upon my experience,IT-BHU is a place that garuntees making you technically sound and an all rounder ,'good' human being.Of course you can choose to be maggu(geek),but for a vast majority of the junta,the scene and the culture will invariably instil values and street smartness.The culture(not just the IT culture but the campus culture) is unique and a phenomenom to imbibe.It can only be experienced and not expressed.
(Ah,one more thing.The insti website is not in a very good shape right now,so ask alumni for advice than outsiders about ITBHU)

Here's my info for 2011 exams:
IITJEE AIR = 4658 (yeah I know it's a waste)
AIEEE expected AIR = around 1500
UPSEE (state level) rank = 38 (good but useless)
VITEEE AIR 285 (again good but useless. idk why I even gave this exam)

Anyway, so here are my choices:
1) Take some offstream branch that doesn't interest me at IITR or IT-BHU

2) I love maths. Really. So, I can also take MSc integrated in applied maths at IITR. I want to take it but I have no knowledge whatever of the placements after the five years of hard work.

3) If my aieee rank is near about what I expect it to be, then, according to the last year stats, I will be able to get NIT trichy, warangal and allahabad with CSE or ECE. And yeah, I love programming too.

So, what should I do in this condition? I understand that the discussion that's going on here is regarding IT BHU only but I'm in a serious dilemma here s' help me.
btw, I live in kanpur so varanasi would be quite close to home which is good :)
If I elaborate a little, well, I would go with MSc applied maths if only someone can show me some stats that it's a good carrier choice. Else, I will join NIT and prep over there for JEE 2012 (however naive it may sound). Or maybe, if by some one-in-a-million chance, if I can get civil engg at IT BHU then I'll take it.
Please advise...

Going after nit trichy(in particular) or warangal cse can b very wise if u intend to stick to technical field after 4 yrs . if u luking for MBA then IIT tag does matter ..m 2 a novice just wanted to help so wrote !!

Hi Anonymous, H7,

It's great to see current students pitching in with their valuable comments. It certainly adds a critical insider view on what all our institute can offer to prospective candidates.

But I would like to re-iterate what Animesh said few posts back. It would be even better if you all can mention your name, branch and year in your posts. It helps to put your comments in right "perspective" and hence adds more value for the readers of this FAQ.

Thanks,

@ Akash Srivastava
Well i myself being a mining engg. student i would say choosing IT-BHU mining was the best choice I made. The highest package in mining was 36 lacs (Rio-Tinto Austrailia) and the average package was aounrd 6-7 lacs. Btw dont fill up your choices considering the pay cheques. Look up for your interest and the college which will help in your overall development.

I've secured an AIR 3968 in IIT JEE 2011.I want to study mechanical engineering, but due to a low rank i'm not getting it in any of the top 5 IIT's. I'm left with IT-BHU (sorry for not using the IIT tag)or ISM Dhanbad. I've got suggestions such as mining at IIT Kharagpur.People say that i may try for a branch change, and if it doesn't work then i may study a minor course in mechanical engineering at kharagpur. I dont have facts but according to IIT students opportunities for even off stream students is vast at IIT kharagpur. What's your openion?

Please can anyone (preferably somebody in IT BHU) tell me how is the engg physics branch at IT BHU. From what little I do know, I think that I will like it. But again the concern is placements and further study (GRE?). So could anyone PLEASE elaborate on the conditions a little. I think 2 batches of this branch have passed out. How have been there placements and have they been able to go for further studies (MS/ME)? Help me someone.

Hi Saurav Kumar Singh,

I passed out this year from the Mechanical Engineering Department, IT BHU. So I will be able to help you with your question.
You have written that you want to study Mechanical Engineering. Now, if you really are serious about that, then the Mechanical Engg. of IT BHU offers you serious prospects. It is one of the toughest departments of IT BHU. This department ensures that even those who do not have interest have to make efforts to pass out. So for a person interested in Mechanical Engg, it will provide you with the best study of core subjects that is possible. So if you are thinking about higher studies, you get a nice platform to start with.
If you are thinking about placements, then the highest package this year was 12 lpa (Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd.) and average must range between 6-7 lpa.
I do not have information about minor courses in Mechanical Engg at IIT Kharagpur, but if you want to continue your career in a core field by taking a core job or going for higher studies, pursuing Mining Engg, in which you are not interested, is not a good choice.
For someone interested in Mechanical Engg, the department in IT BHU ensures one of the best platforms in the country.

sir i've secured 5148 rank in jee 2011. i'm getting metallurgy and mining in it bhu. though metallurgy seems difficult as its closing rank was 5162 last year.what are the prospects of branch change,not to cs or ee but to branches better than mining like civil or chemical?tell something about mining engineering. i may do mba after it(not sure yet). i've considered it bhu to be iit bhu soon ,while taking my decisions.

May 31, 2011 5:56 AM
 Ankit Mittal said:

Hi Ashish Bahukhandi,

First addressing your concern about branch change, I would say that you cannot rely on this prospect. The branch changing opportunity depends on a lot of factors which include your Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA or pointer) of first year, the strength of your branch (determines how many people will get this opportunity) and also the strength of the branch you want to change to. Before enrolling in a course it is difficult to predict whether or not you will sustain the determination to be at the top of your class. Many students join with the same thoughts that they will change their branch, but it does not happen for all of them. On the other side, if you really are determined, it is not an impossible task. But the point is that you cannot be very sure about your mindset once you enter college. There are a lot of other opportunities in college (I am also including co-curricular ones) that may change your mindset to continue working for branch change.

About the Mining Engg Department of IT BHU, I can assure you that it is a very competitive department. If you are looking to do an MBA after college then your branch will hardly matter. If you are looking for a core job, then you will have opportunities in Coal India Ltd., Tata Steel and similar companies. You can also go for many non-core jobs relating to management consultancy, finance etc.

I have provided a general view on the matter raised by you, but if you need counselling, then you need to specify what other options you have. Only then can it be compared.

this is just to give light to current JEE crackers about IIT BHU... last year i was xactly in dis same dilemma as what to opt for. I had secured AIR of 2428 nd had the options of GUWAHATI nd ROORKE wid fair branches lyk civil,meta ,mech etc .. I inquired about this institute on this same portal. Animesh Bhaiya nd few other ppl clarified the ambiguity i had for IIT BHU. So after a lot of discussion wid my parents nd relatives who r in da field of eng. i opted for IIT BHU nd hence filled the choices in such a way so dat i may get IIT BHU CSE. I m through the 1st yr nd never had ny feeling of regret.Though u may develop a bad taste for certain things but its more or less the same in other IIT's as well. most importantly till last year counselling, conversion of IT to IIT was pretty much on the table but not certain(politics).This year u guys hav the cushion of conversion being irrefutable.. So if u hav this opportunity of being in this elite institute dont let it go in vain.. Discuss ur prospects wid ur parents nd others nd choose the best for urself ...

Hi Group,
I am a mining engineer passout of 2011 batch. I can comment on the placement scenario of mining branch. The highest package offered is INR 36 lacs. approx.(to me..:)),,by Rio Tinto, a British Australain Mining comp. Besides this..other PSU's like NTPC, CIL also have recruited giving dream salaries. Other comp. include Tata Steel, Jindal steel, Relaince Energy, vedanta..etc. So, all in all the average pckg fr this year has been around 8 lacs. Hope this clarifies the placement scenario of mining dept.

 Sumit Thakur EEE07 said:

Dear Abhishek,

Your questions about the prospects of Metallurgy and Mining branches at IIT(BHU) and whether or not to rely on branch change have already been answered on this forum by the student community.

On your second question I would make one general comment. Both Mining and Meta have good prospects for higher studies. Students generally tend to prefer B.Tech courses over Dual Degree courses because that leaves them with an option of supplementing their B.Tech. education in an IIT with an MS/PhD from a different institution, preferably abroad, thus adding diversity and richness to their educational experience.

That's my two cents. May be the student community would like to add on to my comments.

Dear ashish bahukhandi
Mining Department at IT-BHU is one of the best in the country. Even if you would not like to pursue mining job (though off late it has become one of the best paying branches), Mining engineering gives you an opportunity to be exposed to various engineering disciplines. no wonder, Most of the early management gurus were mining engineers. Even today mining companies work with the biggest machines on the planet and utilize knowledge from all branches of engineering. My batchmates have done well in fields like Geo-Sciences, Earth exploration, Software, finance, Project Management to name few. Avenues for further studies in best universities across the world are plenty.
Recently one of 2002 Mining Grad discovered a diamond studded planet (See: http://www.itbhuglobal.org/chronicle/archives/2010/12/nikku_madhusudh.php)

Prospective students,
Don't get too hung up on the branch and prospects after four years at ITBHU. If you are planning to go in a specific core field (like Civil, Meta, Mining etc) then this might be an important question. If not, then branch doesn't matter which I believe might be the case with most of the students.

Like in any other good institute, you are responsible of carving your own destiny. There are options everywhere and you will always find a group of like-minded students who would be sailing in the same boat. There are always groups of students who prepare for MS, CAT, International MBA, Civil Services ... you just need to figure out what interests you. Nothing is going to land in your lap just because you are in an IIT.

ITBHU is one of the finest institutes in India not because of the quality of the education but because of the quality of the students. I like to believe that students at ITBHU are not the ones who gave up everything for JEE and thus manage to balance the socio-cultural aspect of their lives. If you decide to join ITBHU then you are going to have fun-filled four years of learning and a network which you might find more handy than a degree.

PS: I graduated from ITBHU about a decade back from Metallurgy.
Best,
Biplav

Dear Prospective students,

I passed out of Mechanical engineering department in the year 2006.I was one of the LUCKY ones who got their branch change after the first year.

There is a piece of advice from my side.Please don't consider brach change a factor while filling up the counselling form.There are lots of factors that go into this branch change which you people will come to know once you join the institute.

One more thing,in my view branch plays a very small part when it comes to your carreer progression.Majority of my cera batchmates are doing much much better in their career when compared to me.

Also, believe me, you people will have a time of your life which you will cherish forever and it will make you nostalgic all your life.So don't miss the oppurtunity.

Job prospects do not really matter to me since I m sure I will do graduation. Tell me about rote learning here ... Do you people have open book tests?

June 1, 2011 9:47 AM
 Sumit Thakur EEE07 said:

@Ankit

I'm not sure how "open book tests" relate to your aim of MBA.
Anyways, I assume you are asking about applying for MBA abroad (US/European Schools). Here are important points to keep in mind:

1) IIT "tag" does help. But it's just the IIT brand that sells and not the fact that its Kgp, Kanpur or for that matter any other IIT.

2) As our alumnus Biplav (also an alumnus of UCLA Anderson, a top business school in US) stated few posts before that nothing will come straight into your pocket because of you being an IITian. Trust me, MBA in US and that too from a top 10 college is a very-very tough nut to crack.

3) The chances of admission to such schools will depend more on what kind of career progress you make after school and also to some extent on your extra curricular profile. BHU has some very good opportunities and more importantly has the right "campus culture" to take up "leadership" activities in technical, cultural and athletics fields.

With BHU slated to become an IIT you would make a good choice if you choose it, given your aim of MBA and affinity towards CSE stream.

I can get the Ingtegrated Mtech in Maths and computing at IT BHU. But I should also get 5 year integrated MSc in Applied mathematics at IIT Roorkee. The fact the degree offered by ITBHU is MTech while that by IITR is MSc the cause of indecision here. See, I don't know what I would want after five years. I might want to do a PhD for which MSc from IITR would be better. Or, I may just go for a good job for which I think that Mtech degree would be better (my biased opinion of course).
I am particularly more inclined towards IITR because of they are offering APPLIED maths which is good because of the much greater flexibility, more diverse syllabus (including many physics electives) and much broader scope for further study.
So, which one should be preferred?? And please no prejudiced opinion. Of course respecting your college is good but here I am asking for a frank outlook.
Thanks again..

@Prasoon

I guess nobody on this forum would be able to give you any idea about IIT R's course. You have to research that yourself.
As far as Maths and Comp. at BHU is concerned, you should contact one of the current students for accurate opinion since its a fairly new branch. Vineet Sharma, a final year student of this course, has already mentioned his personal email id on this forum. Get in touch with him.

I got air 2962 in JEE2011...Acc. to last year's cut off i'm abl to get mechanical,civil,electrical,electronics etc etc....I want to study mechanical or electrical and as per last year d closing ranks were around 3500's for mech and 3200's for electrical....but am a bit concerned as last year it-bhu's dilemma over d IIT conversion was far from settled,but this year its most certainly becoming an IIT..will this drastically change the closing rank scenarios..wit my rank do i stand a good chance of getting into IT-BHU cuz its an awsome college,second best just to d old IIT's...Please reply..

if i do mining engineering.ok,if i get good job but the working places for a mining engineer are not big cities but small places with mines etc. and one of the person told me that i may get frustrated with it and mining is completely different field.this is making me think about mining engineering again and again.plus i read that mining syllabus is relatively light so one can get time to prepare for mba.is this true?

Guys
I see many things being repeated by students! I am here trying to answer them as I find them genuine and most of us had the same queries when we qualified JEE.

Here is the crash course!!

Question 1. I see many students being confused about choices and likes e.g. I like mathematics, I like physics etc etc.

Answer 1: You cant decide whether u like something or not unless you have delved deep down in it. So it is not right to say that you like mathematics or physics and not electrical or computer science, OR lets say u like mechanical engineering and not computer science. Life is a big game and u cant base your choices on what u have learnt in last 2-3 years (physica, chemistry etc during JEE preparation).
Anyone and everyone who qualifies JEE is a brilliant guy and almost all of them do well in life. Hence here chose the path that is chosen by successful guys and opt for branches in their order
1. computer science
2. Electronics
3. Electrical
4. Mechanical
5. Chemical
etc etc...

Question 2: I want to prepare for Civil services and should opt for core branches like electrical,mechanical,civil.

Answer 2: most of the people who go for IAS choose non-core-line branches like psychology,philosophy,political science etc and if you look at history most of the IAS are from branches like electronics, mining etc etc...

Question 3: Where I should opt for IITs or IIT-BHU ?? This is one of the hottest questions.

Answer 3: IT-BHU is certain to become IIT, as bill has already been passed in Lok-Sabha and has been introduced in Rajya-Sabha. IIT-BHU is best for placements and this is one of the reason we joined ITBHU and not IITs (In 2001 as a guy could get computer science in ITBHU at rank 1000 compared to chemical in IITs and recieved a much better package). And now as IT-BHU is scheduled to be IIT go ahead and take advantage of this fact.

Question 4: Which branch is better ??
Answer 4: All the branches are good and u should take them in preference order as per what is your rank can get you.

One last suggestion: Life is 60 years (Assuming life expectancy to be 60 years) continuous process and not just 4 year process that you spend in college. There are lots of things that you do in college and learn from your seniors that make you successful in life. later you learn from your company seniors and be successful. I can guarantee that you wont find more helping alumni association and seniors than that of IT-BHU and that is why I am successful today.

 Sumit Thakur EEE07 said:

@Deepak
There are plenty of posts on this forum that talk about prospects of Mining Engg. at BHU. For your questions on Ceramic Engg. I would suggest getting in touch with Nikhil Gupta, an alumni from Cera. His contact details are mentioned in the Q&A at the top of this page.

@Harshit
On any day, if given a choice, I would go for an IIT rather than DCE just because of its global, brand value. As far as Mech @ IIT-BHU is concerned please go through the posts above which will give you a fair idea.


@Anirudh
Historically the order has been meta followed by cera and mining in parallel. But with the recent upsurge of "core engg." placements in mining dept. you might want to change the order.

@annirudh sing..if you dont have specific interest...then my reccomendations would be meta,cera and mining in that order.

@ashish bahukhandi...it is a fact that mines are not located in urban areas.But if you look back at careers which mining students from BHU they range from software, mba, academia, offshore companies and mining work. In otherwords,you do have choice over where you will be based.

hope this helps.

@Ashish Bahukhandi

Dear Ashish,

It is true that Mining Engg. is not in vogue in these times and if you have serious liking for other streams you should consider them assuming you have options.

Answering your question about your future city where you would be living and the career path you can take, here are some of the things that may happen to you post Mining Degree from IT BHU or soon to be IIT BHU

1. Get a job in Mining / Oil industry (latter is more difficult though) and you do work in outskirts of a big city/small city

2. You get a Software job live in a metro and be complacent about it and take the life as it goes.

3. You get into IIMs and follow a different path

4. You pursue Masters/PhD from US Universities in Mining or Allied Sciences (like Material Science, Civil, Petroleum and Earth Sciences) or in a Completely different field (like Operation Research, Financial Engineering etc.)

The point is if you are willing to put in extra, Mining would not hinder you in any way. You will be frustrated at lot of times but rest assured people at other places are frustrated too! In a way it helps to stretch and work hard and try something big.


I am a Mining '06 Alum and I live in New York City working with an Investment Bank. Mining never hindered me, sure it frustrated me sometimes but I never wanted to be complacent and settle in, just like all of my other batch mates who are doing great!

@Vaibhav
The Metallurgical Department at IT-BHU is one of the best in the country(very much at par with IITs and even better in some cases).It is one of the best and most reputed departments in IT-BHU.You can find more info about the department on the internet.It still retains world class professors(despite not being an IIT).Reccomendations from such professors can land you places.It also conducts research in collaboration with various national and international agencies/institutions.
If you are genuinely interested in Metallurgy,then all core companies recruit from IT-BHU(The overseas placements are expected to rise with the IIT tag).The department is among the tops in the institute not just in terms of no. of job offers,but also averages and quality.This is due to the fact that it is the most practical knowledge emphasisng department in the institute.
If you are not interested in core,the department is still really the place to be!It emphasis on overall personality development more than any other department,very active socially and light coursed towards the end,making it perfect for MBA aspirants.EVERY YEAR,people from this department make it to the IIMs.
As far as non core companies are concerned all open companies recruit from metallurgy because of the repo it carries.Placements in companies like oracle on one hand and Tata Steel on the other hand show how diverse the placement prospects can be.
And do not think you'll be studying metallurgy all the time.You will have enough time to have fun and pursue your passions/interests side by side be it robotics,electronics,astronomy or sports/cultural or even photography!
Try finding more information from current students.(Try facebook!)

All the best.

 Anonymous said:

@ashish: i think u should not go for specific branches like meta, mining in it bhu. They will give you good package at last but interest is something which u should give heed to.Many students lose their interest after going into engineering field.If you choose specific branches like them it can give you trouble on the other hand if you go for core branches like mech,civil,electrical their is wide scope of them and u can find your interest in them .
So my advice is go for computers or electronics or any core branch.
for aieee rank is concern u can think of PEC,chandigarh production or something very good placement record.then u can go for nits.there is new nit,delhi (mentor nit warangal)there classes are being held in warangal(very good nit)

While it is good to plan ahead, may I suggest that you first give your four years of engineering education a chance. You have just cleared a gruelling examination and you have already set your sights on another. Maybe, if you enters your bachelors program with an open mind, you'd be putting yourself in a better position to take a call on your future choices.

Generation today seem to be planning too much ahead in advance. Looks like a case of peer pressure. Not saying planning ahead is bad but need to sit down and ponder if it is the right stage to decide what you want to do 5 years down the line. You have just crossed +2 and not even seen the world properly. At this stage you don't have real knowledge about what is going on and what is best for you. You like what has been glamorised and kind of enforcing somebody else's choices on you. My advice, get in wherever you want. See how it feels like to be ranked 20 in the class when you used be in top 5 in your school, interact with seniors for over a year and then decide. If you want to appear for CAT or civil services then your choice at this stage is not going to make much of a difference in the final result..OK may be 1-5%. In US and Europe, even guys from normal institutes take the GMAT date first and then prepare just for just 2 - 2.5 months and we try to prepare as long as we can and then take a date.

The top 4 branches at IIT BHU namely CSE, EcE, EEE and Mech are equally good. If you have a specific interest go for that else you might find following post by our alumni helpful in deciding the order:

http://www.itbhuglobal.org/archives/2011/05/faq_for_students_from_iit-jee.html#comment-21459

In my opinion here is the USP of each of the 4 branches:

1) CSE: Outstanding placements. Attracts all core product development firms such as Google, Yahoo etc. Avg. package frequently touches/crosses 8L/annum.

2) EcE: Best faculty on Campus coupled with some very well known labs. Highly recommended if you plan to go for higher studies and work in core sector.

3)EEE : Versatile curriculum that spans across core electrical engineering, electronics and computer science. Tricalites end up as jack of multiple trades which reflects very well in the diversity of their placements and options for higher studies.

4)Mech: Hardest dept in Insti :). See the following post by a recent student for more info:

Hi,

To all those confused between Dual M Tech. and B. Tech. this is my personal opinion and people may differ. I believe unless you have a very strong inclination for a Dual Degree stream (which most of incoming students don't have) prefer B. Tech.

Reason being, in current world you would have to any ways do a post grad degree. With Dual M. Tech you loose one year and end up doing the same post grad Degree that too from India. With B. Tech you may compromise a bit on stream but it saves you one year and it wont matters as long as you don't have specific liking for the stream you are getting Dual Degree. Moreover most of the time you get almost similar streams for both Dual Degree and B. Tech. for instance B. Tech in CSE and Dual Degree in Elec., per me the upside for compromising one more year for such a narrow difference (even for a bigger difference) is not much.

Can anyone tell me about meta in general? I mean I don't like chemistry much... Organic chem is fine but inorganic chemistry is a topic that I do not like at all. The very little meta that I have studied till now, well, it's safe to say that I didn't exactly like it. So, I am worried that I might have too much trouble finishing four years with something that I do not have interst in. I plan on doing an MBA later on so it's just the IIT tag that I'm after.

Therefore, if anybody out here is a meta graduate, would you please help me out? Is meta too tough? Is it too boring? Of course everyone has a different opinion of what's tough and what's not but still...

That being said, the other option open for me is 5 year integrated MSc in applied maths in IITR. I checked the syllabus and it seemed more intersting compared to meta. But then again, it's not an engineering degree. That's what has me confused. Obviously, I have filled in maths and comp at BHU in the choice list but I might not get it.

So, please help me out here.

@prasoon (june 10th comment, 2011)

Metallurgical Engineering (in BHU) or Materials Science and Engineering (Dual in BHU and B-Tech in IIT(s)) is basically a study of the relationship between properties of materials and the arrangement of atoms/crystals in it. It teaches you how you can use temperature, pressure, mechanical force, electric field, magnetic field, etc. to modify the structure of a material to get certain advanced properties out of it. In the past the focus of this degree was mostly about extracting metals from ores because that was the era of metals manufacturing. NOw the field is quite different with nanomaterials coming into the market with advanced electronic, magnetic, and mechanical properties. Nanomaterials go into everything today starting from the Intel i5's chips to hard disk drives to self cleaning paints to carbon fiber F1 racing cars. So this is a pretty exciting field. It's a great field to get into if you are interested in further studies. Job opportunities in India are restricted to corrosion (oil and gas sectors- national, SHELL, Schlumberger, Petrofac, etc. and mind you these jobs pay really well) or metals manufacturing (Tata Steel) or Automobile (Tata motors) for BHU meta students. A good chunk of people from meta every year join software companies I must say. These are mostly the software service companies. Some students end up in companies like Evaluserve which do market research.

I am not sure if BHU has updated its curriculum more recently to include nanomaterials but I know some IITs have. There is not much of organic chemistry in the curriculum. But extractive metallurgy can get too much into details of how a pure metal is obtained from the ores in the earth which can get pretty detailed at times and tough to remember. So I must warn you that certain courses involve remembering stuff unfortunately. Certain other courses like physical metallurgy, phase transformations, and structure of materials are much more interesting with physics in them. At BHU when I was there (I am a 2007 passout things must have changed since then) it was "relatively" (compared to other BHU departments) easy to get high grade point averages (8.5 and above). SO it helps when you want to sell yourself in your resume. Also if you can get into big oil based companies after graduation the work experience combined with a good GMAT score should get you into a good school for MBA. Meta at BHU is a well known department in top US schools as there have been students pursuing further studies over the years and doing well in general. So if further studies here in the US is an option you might consider, this is a good dept. to get into.

So in a nutshell I would say, that if you can get a B-Tech from the conventional IIT(s) go for it as you care about the tag and a possible MBA later. But if you have to choose between a five year IITR and a four year BHU meta I think the latter is not bad at all. That way you can graduate faster and also have options to go for further studies in case you change your mind later. Do find out about the jobs that the five year IITR degree fetches if you can.

Good luck and feel free to contact me if you need more information.

I mean I don't like chemistry much... Organic chem is fine but inorganic chemistry is a topic that I do not like at all. The very little meta that I have studied till now, well, it's safe to say that I didn't exactly like it. So, I am worried that I might have too much trouble finishing four years with something that I do not have interst in. I plan on doing an MBA later on so it's just the IIT tag that I'm after.

Therefore, if anybody out here is a meta graduate, would you please help me out? Is meta too tough? Is it too boring? Of course everyone has a different opinion of what's tough and what's not but still...

That being said, the other option open for me is 5 year integrated MSc in applied maths in IITR. I checked the syllabus and it seemed more intersting compared to meta. But then again, it's not an engineering degree. That's what has me confused. Obviously, I have filled in maths and comp at BHU in the choice list but I might not get it.

So, please help me out here.

Prasoon:

I graduated from BHU with a B.Tech. in Metallurgy in 2007. I also hated Chemistry (and especially inorganic Chemistry) before I joined. The reason I still joined - and which turned out to be true - was that a major chunk of Metallurgy is basically Physics. And that keeps the subject alive and fascinating. The Chemistry aspects are actually not too bad either IFF you have a good teacher.

Most importantly: Banaras is a culturally rich, ancient and captivating city. Spending 4 years there is a big, big privilege, irrespective of what your major is.

I have answers to some of your questions.

1 : Do not worry about package. Your decision at this stage is hardly going to affect the package.
2 : Yes, the department will help in the internships.
3 : On the basis of my personal experience, if you do not have any specific inclination for cse or ece, then choose cse-bhu. During my counselling, I was also confused with these two options. I choose cse and 6 years later, I think it was the right decision(though I preferred cse because of my field interest.)

As I said earlier that faculty is definitely not the USP of CSE and there is a need for additional recruitment. But I would completely disagree with the claim that faculty is not interested in attending the classes. Do you have any credible source to back up your comment ?

@Ankit
EcE is not about programming but study of subjects such as Analog and Digital Circuits, VLSI, Microprocessors, Computer Architecture etc.
Most of the core product development firms such as Microsoft, Adobe, NetApp etc. do open for and hire from EcE

@Puneet
Don't get too hung up with the package while looking at Meta.

 Sumit Thakur EEE07 said:

@Lalith
Here is my answer to a more general question of IIT (BHU) vs new IITs

1) IIT tag: With IT-BHU's conversion to IIT(BHU), this factor is out of equation

2)Campus Life and Experience: Trust me that having a well established campus with a long tradition of rich student culture matters a lot in one's overall personality development over a period of 4 years. IIT(BHU) is miles ahead of any of the new IITs in this respect

3)Reputation and Market Perception: It takes lot of time to build one and older institutes tend to do better in this regard

4)Alumni Network: This is your biggest asset once you cross the gates of your college. IIT(BHU) graduates tend to enjoy tremendous alumni support (personal experience) from a network developed over long period of time

5) Facilities and Infrastructure: Having a dedicated set of facilities and well established infrastructure helps in focusing on other important aspects of your undergraduate experience

Hope this helps.

To know more about Chemical Engg you can contact one of the recent graduates Prakhar Jain (CHE 2011). His contact info is available here

Few things:
1) Placements are never a problem at IIT(BHU). Every year the Girls@ IIT BHU tend to score outstandingly well in placements. All the multinational firms are very much focused on improving the diversity in their organizational hierarchy and an intelligent girl studying in an IIT is a precious asset to them.


3)Rest assured you would get all the opportunities to groom your personality at IIT (BHU). From All India Tech Fests, Cult fests, Sports Fest, Student Clubs (Recently the video club at BHU shot and "screened" a full fledged movie at local theatres), close interaction with other faculties at University such as fine arts etc. and much more.

Don't worry :) at all and feel free to post more questions

@Abhilasha

Gender is irrelevant when it comes to performance in individual streams. What really matters is the hard work.

Now about chemical engineering, it is a huge field and opens opportunity to enter almost every interdisciplinary field (whether it is material science, bio-technology, tissue engineering, nano-technology, semi-conductor research and many more) apart from core fields like oil and gas. In the past girls have always done well in chemical engineering. And yes, chemical engineering is not chemistry alone. It is a blend of physics, mathematics, chemistry and mechanical engineering.

The job profile and opportunities for chemical engineers are going to increase considering the industrialization happening in India and the best thing is the un-stressful nature of the job.

The facilities and the faculty in the department is also very good. I have never regretted getting chemical engineering in ITBHU and also missing branch change to mechanical engineering by 1 credit.

My advise would be to take admission in ITBHU. You may also mail me if you have any concerns.

Last year Electronics closed at 3116. This year Ashish has got it with an AIR 2819.

This year with IIT conversion so near I'd expected another jump of atleast 500 ranks in both electrical and electronics. Huh!

@Archit,

Responses to your queries:

1. Faculty and facilities of chemical engn.
GOOD

2. Prospects of higher studies:
Enormous provided you work hard... (Though I know a number of low rankers who made it to good universities on scholarships easily. )

3. Department Change:

TOugh, demands lot of hard work as everybody else will be going for it and also depends on luck. I missed mine by 1 credit and I haven't regretted missing mechanical engineering.

4. Impact of conversion:

It will have significant impact especially on infrastructure. With money pouring in you should see all around improvement.

5. Facilities:

Hostels are closed, but you can spend 4 years easily. You have internet access in the rooms. I heard that they had space crunch in past couple of years. I am told that additional rooms are coming up from next semester (current students please verify). After it becomes IIT, hostels will improve too.

6. Foreign INternship:

As per my knowledge almost none of the chemical engineering department in INdia (all IITs and in ITBHU) allow foreign interships in universities. Industrial training is must at the end of 3rd year which is useful. If you get an internship in a foreign company, you can go.

Now foreign internship has NO IMPACT on your career/placement/GRE. I know people with foreign internships not getting anything while those with Indian ones getting much better opportunities. It is all about how much do you learn. I never did my internship abroad and I ended up having one of the best possible core jobs. Hard work is the key.

7. Placements

Current students please update.

hey everyone..
I got AIR 3621 in IITJEE this year.. In the course allotment i got chemical engineering at IIT(BHU).
i have a few doubts regarding the course :
1. How is the faculty and facilities for the chemical engnn department ?
2. What are the prospects for higher studies..( GRE preferably ) ?
3. How tough is department change ?
4. How will the conversion into IIT affect the institute ( in terms of placements...rankings...facilities..etc etc ) ?
5. How are the facilities at hostels.( i am asking this because the campus is very old ) ?
6. Do students from IIT(BHU) go for foreign internships ?( and chem engnn specifically)
7. How are the placements from this department...?

Hi all,

Was just going through the comments under an article in outlook wherein the ranking for the top colleges were pulished. And it was painful to see some of the current and past students of BHU arguing about the rankings with some BITS pilani students and others.
I feel we should not stoop to such low levels of debating on so very trivial matters. Request everyone not to be involved in such debates over ranking and which is better college and all.Please don't demean other colleges.

Thanks

@Rakesh. Take the Materials branch. Its a good branch with fast upcoming prospects in nanotech etc.
Just for your info, 5 years after graduation no one cares which branch I passed out from. You cannot simply survive on your BTech. and must go for a higher degree later to grow in career.

Thanks a lot for your reply, i am a bit relieved now, i was really worried when i heard from different people that material science is one of the lowest paying branches and does not open good careers in India. I was alloted a dual degree course in material science, what do you advice me to do after that....

@Rakesh. Do MBA later, or go to USA for further studies, since Materials Science has lot of research oppurtunities in USA.

July 6, 2011 9:58 AM
  Anonymous said:

@Utkarsh-mess and food facilities are better in IT BHU than the IITS because it still follows maharaj system in which good cook prepare the food.In IITs the food quality is not good as in IT BHU now.And why the ways the session has not started yet but this is nearly sure that the bill will get passed in rajya sabha too.
P.S.-i can't predict the quality of food here after its conversion to iit

@avinash
It used to be offered to the top 10% students of the branch subject to the availability of seats in the branch that one has opted for.I don't think it has changed over the last few years.

@utkarsh
the CGPA required depends on the performance of other people in the branch.But you must be among the top 10% of your class first to be even eligible for a branch change.
