    Keeping all the factors in mind, According to you, Which is better?

    International Institute of Information Technology - Hyderabad (Computer Science & Engineering) or Indian Institute of Technology (Computer Science)

    IIIT-H's CSE is considered be better than any of the CS courses available at any of the IITs.

    However, IITs come with a brand tag. While buying products, we often give priority to a reputed brand. Similar is the case here...

    A person has a deep interest in Computers & IT .Salary packages don't bother him. Which one should he go for?

    prefer IIIT Hyderabad, it's a research institute, the amount of knowledge you will gain in IIIT will be mainy times that of IITs. IIIT's syllabus is very much higher as compared to IITs. It's the only institute of its own kind in India.

    That's exactly what I think! But, there's so much hype created around IITs that the world will consider you a fool if you drop the idea of IIT & prefer IIIT instead! However, I don't care!

    "Hype", "brand value"!!! Do you even know the curriculum and the quality of professors who teach there? I am not an IIT graduate but my younger brother is thus I know how rigorous their syllabus is. Many top executives of tech industries around the world are IIT Kanpur CS graduates. This shows the quality of a graduate who comes out of those gates. Now please do not tell me that executives sitting in those companies are fooled by the "brand" and not the real thing!

    I do not know much about IIIT-H but as it is recently founded (1998) I highly doubt it can compete with IITs in terms of quality of education. This is just my opinion.

    BTW I suppose the question posed by you is just hypothetical. Isn't it?

    Students "prepare" for IIT-JEE, if they can't get into anyone of them IIIT comes much later in preference.

    I have seen most of the people around here who tag IITs as brand-valued institutions are mostly those who never got into them or I must say could not get into them. Grapes are sour indeed. :)

    whatever the hype is, whatever you have heard really doesnt matter. If u get, go for IIT. Excellent Placement, and theres an added respect for IIT students.

    To be honest, as far as value for higher education and the job market is concerned, in India at least and to a great extent even abroad,

    any course in any of the Top 6-7 IITs >>>> Any course in any other college of India

    But ya, if you don't make it to any of the IITs, nothing compares with IIIT H in engg, apart from the IITs which beat it black and blue.

    IIIT H > NSIT/DCE/NITs or at least comparable

    One thing you must know that is IITs gave B.Tech. (and Dual Degrees too) in many courses including CSE,ECE,ME,EE,Civil etc. but IIIT-H gives B. Tech. in two courses only CSE and ECE (also Honors). IIIT-H gives B.Tech. in those subjects in which it specializes. There is no doubt that IITs are best. But in terms of CSE IIIT-H beats IITs.
    Don't see the brand value, placement and other things. Just have a look at the syllabus of both IIIT-H and IITs. IIIT-H is a research institute, even B.Tech. students of third or fourth year have to join the research labs. This thing make IIIT-H special. But for all other branches yes IIT has no match in India.:cool:

    It might be true that IIIT-H Syllabus is better than IIT , but i think the brand value might just matter , IIT is without any argument considered the best College(s) is India , the best students end up there .

    A batchmate , friend of mine got selected [ His name is there on that list ], we kicked his butt real hard that night :D

    @gagan007: my question is not at all hypothetical. The way you are thinking is absolutely wrong. Although I am quite sure of my selection in jee (with decent rank), m preparing for admission into iiit-h.

    Its not like that I won't be able to get a good rank and hence I will then go for iiit-h. I can bet that i'll get a decent rank in jee. But then too I may pay more attention to my aieee rank.

    Iiit-h's cse is considered a better choice and it has got strong reasons in its support. Go google yourself.

    For any other stream, iit is no match n I know that very well. I am completely aware about the quality of education iiit provides.

    To me, salary packages/placements dont matter. I just want to learn.

    I am going to get a good counseller's view on this.

    ok, maybe I got your point wrong in first place. Sincere apologies for giving a verdict there.


    JEE results were announced, what's your rank?
