"The diverse pool of students at the Institute, who, due to the distance from the nearest city, gets wide opportunities to be creative and motivated in their own ways which leads them to develop dynamic skill sets and sharpen their strengths. Also the balanced academic and extracurricular environment of the IIT Kharagpur campus adds value to their overall development" added Prof. Deb.
