Choosing IIITD over other obvious choices has been one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. My journey here has been nothing short of transformative- in a way that has shaped me into a well-rounded individual. Something that I admired since the start was the curriculum; which has been carefully designed to provide a holistic education experience in whatever field a student might wish to explore and faculty who are genuinely passionate about teaching and learning. Students are given opportunities to hone their technical skills, but also learn the intricacies of finance, biology, social sciences. The students are passionate and driven. At any point in time one can see them engaged in not only hackathons and technical projects but also extracurricular activities like event organisation, clubs, sports etc. IIITD’s commitment to academic excellence, its amazing research-driven culture, industry exposure, the beautiful campus and the vibrant campus life has given me the best and most productive four years of my life. The road was tough, no doubt but I have grown a lot- not just academically, but personally too. I will proudly carry the IIIT Delhi legacy wherever I go.
