After the GATE exam, I searched on YouTube and for blogs from students. I wanted to know what it’s like to do an M.Tech at the IITs. However, I felt like there’s not enough information from a student’s perspective. Anything related to this subject focuses mainly on the placement interviews of people who got fat packages or one, two-digit ranks. There is a severe lack of information about the 2 years that happen in between.
Take for example this blog by an IIT Delhi student. It gave me a satisfying amount of information about the M.Tech course and life at the college. There’s info about the courses they do, the projects they make, the amount of programming involved, advice for someone choosing that college and more helpful stuff. It made me wish that there were more similar blogs from students at other IITs.
I’m aware that there is not much difference in the faculty, curriculum, placements and to some extent, the hostel life at all top IITs. You cannot go wrong in choosing any of them. But still, I believe that the postgraduates should share more.
My request is a simple one – the future students of M.Tech courses at IITs should try to share their experiences. Hopefully it’ll match the amount of GATE preparation advice, interview and written test experiences available on the internet.
