Situated in the lap of Himalayas, IIT Mandi is one the finest technical institute for students to spend their undergraduate years. While broad academics and innovative curriculum is one strong focus of the institute, extra co circulars like sports, club activities and events, inter college competitions, fests are all given due importance. Owing to the enthusiastic student community, a lot of new ideas, projects, and events of different scales are executed every year. Overall, the undergraduate experience is one its kind and most cherished experience of students life.
Student life is about learning: not only one's academic subjects and course material, but also learning to adapt and thrive in the world, make life-long friends, and acquire skills and values. The office of the Dean Students at IIT Mandi is engaged in helping students learn -- in every sense of the term -- to the best of their ability.... The IITs have a strong tradition of encouraging students to take an active part in the life of the community. Thus, students come to organize workshops, lectures, tutorials, extra-curricular events, leisure time activities, and notably major cultural and technical festivals. The undisputed success of these events in an index of the growing self-confidence and self-reliance with which students team go about organizing them. Imperceptibly, these engagements contribute to the professionalization of the prospective engineer. If one has to answer the question how engineers come to think like engineers, the answer unerringly points to such opportunities outside the class room to articulate one's ideas, to share common goals, and to pursue them with meticulous teamwork.
Taking admission in IIT Mandi was a great decision. The atmosphere, the helpful seniors and the natural beauty of the campus made me feel right at home. Being active in various clubs and being a part of the organizing team of two fests in my first year helped me gain a lot of experience and boosted my confidence. The college offered me a lot of opportunities to explore my capabilities and interests other than academics also and it eventually led me to become one of the coordinators of the Dance Club in my second year.
After super hectic preparations for JEE, IIT Mandi is the only institution I could think of as my college. Ever since I arrived at campus, I started to explore the campus and different clubs at IIT Mandi. The student culture this institution gives is unique in its own. Unlike other colleges, we have a 5 Week Induction programme. This is the best time of my life at IIT Mandi. What makes an IIT different from other Technical universities is the Student Gymkhana, various student run clubs are the key to a healthy student life. If space science interests you or you are a guitarist! Here you will find clubs for every single aspect of life. After spending one year volunteering in different Clubs, including AstraX (Astro-Fest!), finally I was fortunate enough to be chosen as coordinator for Space technology and Astronomy Cell. The journey of second year was even more beautiful! In short, I had fun times!
If you are looking for a college that supports girls and many other students who have financially unstable families, I would highly recommend this college. Along with the academics I find there's a lot of training and focus on extra curricular activities. There's trainer for every sport that you name and clubs which actively conduct events for students. There's an amazing team working in the GCS which help ease the onboarding of students when they come here for the first time. I'm yet to spend another year at the college, but believe me these 2.5 years I spent here made me rethink the way I looked upon my bad fate while entering this college. Probably it was one of the best decisions I made by choosing this college!
