Dear Sanchit,

Civil Engineering of all IITs is the same (Academic wise).

It all comes down to the facilities these IITs provide.

  • Hostel life and sports facilities are excellent at IIT Roorkee.
  • Internet speed at IIT R is the best among all IITs.
  • Alumni network specially of IIT R in Civil is huge.
  • Placement in the core Civil Engineering is same in all IITs.
  • In terms of connectivity to metropolitan cities. Accessibility is a little bit of concern to Roorkee. Along with the presence of Ganga Canal, since Roorkee is located at the foothills of Himalayas, you can find a lot of places to visit around like Haridwar, Rishikesh, Mussoorie, rest of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh etc etc… same goes for Guwahati. So, I think it gets compensated with the connectivity issue.
  • But KGP and Madras got an advantage in terms of the placements in non-core engineering because of the easy accessibility of companies to these places.
  • Roorkee still follows the old unorthodox culture of The University of Roorkee. Rules are to be followed here.
  • Brand value of all IITs are same. As you can easily find alumni of each IIT at high posts all around the globe.
  • Outside India people have heard the name of IIT Roorkee because of its Legacy.

There is not much to worry about. Think wisely, take advice from your parents, relatives. All things will fall into the right places.You may consider visiting these institutions’ official weblinks as well – SRM University, Chennai,................DTU, Delhi,.................BITS, Pilani, Rajasthan,..................College of Engineering,Pune,..........Lovely Professional University, Phagwara
