How is the CSE faculty and facilities at IIT Ropar?
IIT Ropar is a good college. The placements of CSE for IIT stands the best here. Going by the statistics, IIT Ropar have the best placements among all newer IITs and better than some older IITs like BHU, Guwahati. Though, placements completely depend on individual efforts. I consider IIT Ropar CSE to be equally good as CSE in older IITs and some highly performing newer IITs like Hyderabad and Indore and also other facilities in the college like canteen, library is great though also it has good infrastructure and teachers are well trained and professional.
Hope this helps
iit ropar metallurgy or nit durgapur chemical?
IIT Ropar is just in its second year with Metallurgical Engineering, whereas, NIT Durgapur Chemical doesnt have substantial Placements and career prospects.
My suggestion would be, since cutoffs are estimated to lower this year, try for Metallurgical at IIT Bhubaneshwar or perhaps Mining/Mining Machinery/Environmental at IIT ISM Dhanbad. The following branches at the respective institutes atleast ensure you of a standard Placement.
Coal India, Tata Steel, ExxonMobil are regular recruiters at IIT ISM and the training and placement cell ensures almost 85% Placements each year, when it comes to Mining and Geological Branches.
Metallurgical Engineering at IIT Bhubaneshwar too is a good choice, with Bhubaneshwar located close to Mineral rich regions in Odisha and Jharkhand.Companies like Tata Steel, Jindal Stainless and Vedanta have set up huge integrated operations near Bhubaneshwar are provide training and placement. Future is bright with respect to Metallurgical Engineering, with Hyundai Steel and POSCO, ready to enter Odisha within a couple of years with their ambitious steel projects.
