A suggestions for students who are confused between the choice of IITs and IISc:

IITs are known much for its engineering courses in India. If you like employing tools of science to tackle real life problems such as building skyscrapers to designing circuits. Then you should opt for the IITs without doubt. But if you want to dig deeper into a particular subject on the other hand, then you must go for a BS into that subject from IISc. BS in IISc is of 4 years duration unlike the normal BSc.

STRICTLY FOR BRILLIANT COMMUNITY: I did B.Tech.(Hons.) in E & ECE at IIT / Kharagpur in late 60's and then M.E. in ECE at IISc / Bangalore in early 70's. Both are great places to be in. I think if someone has to choose between the two, then it is tough. I can be contacted for any help / questions on my mobile +91-98 10 603089 ( Gurgaon, India) Rajen Kapur · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Prakhar Gupta A career in research is too harsh. Ronak Agarwal · 2 years ago

@Raghav Vaidyanathan Same thing I thought. Ronak Agarwal · 2 years ago

@Prakhar Gupta Have you attended the counseling on 21st May. Ronak Agarwal · 2 years ago

@Prakhar Gupta Is the program good enough, @Prakhar Gupta Ronak Agarwal · 2 years ago

Log in to reply

@Ronak Agarwal Yes, the program is good. There they told us that about 40% of students stayed there for 5th year because they think that they can get a paper published by working on their project.

Most of the rest went to do PhD in foreign countries. About 4 students went for MBA and 2 students went for jobs.

It seems that job prospects is not very good but it has excellent opportunities in academic career.

Besides teachers and students in IISc are very wonderful.

Yeah I think if research is what is most important for you then you should not leave the opportunity to study in IISc. Prakhar Gupta · 2 years ago

@Prakhar Gupta Research is important for me, but I don't want a life where I have to struggle for money. Ronak Agarwal · 2 years ago

What help do you need? Satvik Choudhary · 2 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Choudhary I want to know, who all are going there. I'm getting admission in IISc. But I'm confused whether to go to IISc or IIT. I'll get approximate rank upto \((250)\).

I really want to go to IISc but my teachers, friends and even family want me to go to IIT.

So If I know that many people are going to IISc to I think I'll be able to convince them that my decision is correct. Prakhar Gupta · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Prakhar Gupta Really Good rank. Though i am quite inexperienced in this domain but i would like to make a suggestion that choose what you want to do. Of course iit is today like a very popular brand and most people who suggest it to you dont actually know what it means. Even if i get a chance i would have preffered iisc as i am very interested in theoretical physics ( I hope so i would get a chance next year) but its your own decision and choose what you want to become. Satvik Choudhary · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Satvik Choudhary So, are you in class XI?

By the way, thanks for your suggestion.

Due to excessive pressure of my surrounding, my mind was too baffled. After reading you I'm now quite happy and confident with my decision. Prakhar Gupta · 2 years, 1 month ago
