The answer to the question, “Where can I get an education that I can value throughout my life?” is "at IITB".
Apart from being the best technical school in the country and one of the top few globally, IITB creates experiences that students don’t forget. If you are passionate about your interests and hoping for a peer group that consists of equally passionate individuals, you will choose IITB. Students typically find something they hold close to the heart at the institute. Be it a passion for biochemistry or an addiction to semi-conductors, you can be sure that IIT will not fall short.
A major attraction of IITB is its distinguished faculty. The faculty at IITB is one of the finest among the Indian vocational institutes. Most members of the faculty are achievers in their own right as well as excellent teachers and mentors. Says one student, “Most of our professors are research scholars themselves and are deeply involved in their own subjects of interest. It is this attitude of our professors that really makes them special, and engaging for our students. It becomes especially important to have professors who think in this way for our students to get their answers and take their involvement in their courses to the next level”
Not only does the institute have a bright set of students at any point in time, but it also has one of the strongest and most faithful alumni networks; the IITB alumni regularly contribute to the enriching IITB experience.
Some of the top reasons why students choose to be part of IITB is one that most people would least expect. While the academic curriculum forms a large part of the experience at IITB, the institute also offers a number of extracurricular activities that IITB students are encouraged to participate in. This ensures that students get an all-round education and are not confined to academic achievements alone. “All work and no play typically dull the mind. We are proud to be part of an institute that promotes a strong curriculum with a keen interest in participation beyond books,” says one IITB student.
IITB is a place that also subscribes to the entrepreneurship philosophy. In fact many of IIT’s students spend a fair amount of time on their own projects and eventually launch them into full-fledged companies as soon as they pass out of IITB.
The institute hosts the Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE), which promotes independent thought amongst the students. The society supports the research and incubation of technological ideas that can be translated into entrepreneurial ventures. The institute thus offers a conducive environment in which new ideas can be generated, researched, and nurtured before they become industry ready.
A green campus that is a welcome change from the concrete jungle that the rest of Mumbai and one of the best college festivals in Mumbai, Mood Indigo, are other attractions that ensure that there's never a dull moment in the lives of IITB students. Studying at IITB can truly be a life changing experience.
