Has anyone on this site attended IIIT-H

Hi

I'm very much interested in Computer Science and programming and came across this college - International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad which offers research facilities even for B. Tech students.

I was just wondering that if anyone on Brilliant attended or is attending IIIT-H and if so, how's the college (I've already heard it's top class).

Thanks!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Its one of the best in india

Yes, it's fantastic. I've done some research about it and just found that the cutoffs are so high (it was around AIR 34 to 3000 something in 2012) that it is daunting to get admission there; considering the fact that a lot of people will have way better scores in JEE than me. But the college is just awesome. I was more excited about the research opportunities it gave. By the way, did you attend it?

all IITs are awesome, they are regarded as the best university of the world and has its name because even if president's child will have to give JEE exam with other 15 lakh students to get admission. and life of a IITian is gorgeous. source: my teacher is a IITian.

Excuse me but I'm not talking about 'IIT', I'm talking about 'IIIT'-International Institue of Information Technology.

BTW this IIIT is not the Govt. one(the Govt. ones are 'Indian Institues of Information Technology'). This is a Public-Private partnership.
