Which one is better for pure sciences and cosmology IISER, NISER or IISC?

Meghdeepa Mondal Posted On : October 22nd, 2021
First, you should note that none of these institutes don’t offer a degree in Cosmology. Yes, all three have courses in Cosmology but these courses are extremely hard. NISER and IISER are comparable. Both are great institutes with remarkable statistics. But in the current scenario, IISc is the best option. Here are the reasons why. It has a better faculty base. Much better research environment. A far more established alumni base. It also has better recognition globally.  If you are thinking about doing a UG course then IISc is the best option. It stands out because of the degree they deliver that is BS. It is a four-year-long course during which you can play around with your topic and narrow it down more for your BS thesis. Many alumni of IISc even co-authored research papers before their 4th year. Arnab Rai Chowdhury, Tarun Deep Saini are to name a few. IISc is best if you are certain that you want to study Cosmology.  However, IISc is not interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary like IISERs. So, if you are not dead sure about Cosmology and need to explore to understand it well then IISER K is a better option.  If you are considering these institutes for your Masters then IISc will be the best option. You will get to meet people from various backgrounds. The BS by research at IISc can help you get into IIA.  Consider NISER only if you are not getting IISc, IISER-K, IISER-P, IIST B.Tech (Physical Science).

What is the differnce between IISc and IISER?

AN
Aaditya Hari Nair Posted On : October 5th, 2021
Among IISc and IISER, the former is the better option.  IISc is the oldest science institute in India and it is recognized worldwide.  At IISc, most of the faculties are top researchers and highly experienced. Whereas, faculties in IISER are comparatively young and have less experience.  IISc takes admission on the basis of JEE Mains, JEE Advanced, NEET, and KVPY. Whereas, IISER takes admission on the basis of JEE Advanced, KVPY, and SCB (IAT). Admissions at IISER are not as competitive as IISc.  However, the research culture at IISER is quite good. If you have the option to join IISc, you should go for it, otherwise, IISER is also a good option.

Which is better for a Ph.D in machine learning, ISI Kolkata or IISc Bangalore?

AN
Aaditya Hari Nair Posted On : September 17th, 2021
My sister did her INEA Summer Research Internship in Machine Intelligence unit from ISI Kolkata. Here’s what her first-hand experience says about the course and the institution. You will get the opportunity to learn among leading Researchers in the field of machine learning who are INAE, IAS, IEEE fellows. You also find people doing research in computational biology as well, which is a highly specialized field not everyone is familiar with! You will enjoy high-quality research while interacting with the Ph.D. students here and the environment is quite friendly. IISc remains the top research institute in India but according to one of my friends who is doing a Ph.D. from IISc, it is quite strenuous and it takes a lot of time and research to come up with an excellent thesis. He is stuck with his Ph.D. thesis just because his mentor is mostly unavailable due to his busy schedule. It can prove to be a big problem because most professors In IISc are busy with their international-level research and conferences most of the time. Also, they are hardly satisfied with the work you come up with. So, you might not get enough guidance as you expect to finish your Ph.D. Both IISc and ISI Kolkata are premier institutes that are well recognized and well-funded. So you wouldn't have any problem in your career with either of these two institutes.

My daughter is studying biotechnology in Vignan University in Guntur. She wants her internship in the IISC in Bangalore. Is it possible? If possible how to apply?

AN
Aaditya Hari Nair Posted On : September 9th, 2021
It's a much sought-after degree at Vignan University. My brother pursued the same and did his MS later. There are two ways to get an internship in the IISC Bangalore.  First, make an application to the Indian Academy of Sciences Summer Research Fellowship program and choose IISC in the institute preference option.  Second, simply email a professor and try to convince them to let your daughter intern at the IISC.  My brother chose the second option to get his preferred spot.

Which one will be a better choice for an MSc in maths, IISc, ISI Kolkata, or IIT KGP?

AN
Aaditya Hari Nair Posted On : September 3rd, 2021
It would be better to focus on colleges that offer Mathematics as their core and you must keep technological institutions aside. Thus, IIT Kharagpur should not be considered. Talking about IISc and ISI Kolkata, both are research-oriented institutions and are equally good for taking up MSc in mathematics. But when we talk Maths in specific, then it would be better if you look at ISI Kolkata as your ultimate option.  The institute is specifically oriented towards studies related to Mathematics. You will be given great exposure at ISI Kolkata.

Which is a better management course, PGDIE from NITIE Mumbai or Masters of Management from IISC Bangalore?

Debdeep Majumder Posted On : August 18th, 2021
Having to know some people from both these institutes, I can say that both have the sand management course but still, there's a lot of difference between the mindset of the two.  The curriculum remains the same but the change comes in the teaching method.  IISc, as usual, has a research-oriented way of teaching.  Whereas NITIE focuses more on the logical and decision-making skills from the managerial point of view. Both are different in the placement domain as there's a marginal difference between the average packages.  Also, IISc is a tier 2 college unlike NITIE. Categories PGDIE at NITIE Mumbai MMS at IISc Bangalore Course Fee 14.63 lakh 3.18 lakh Highest CTC 28 LPA 26 LPA Average CTC 15 LPA 12-18 LPA Recruiting Companies Wipro, ZS Associates, IBM, HP, etc. Infosys, Cognizant, Dell, TCS, etc. So ultimately it is your decision to choose between these two colleges. Assess every criteria before finalizing one. As this will shape your career further.

Which should I choose, IISC (ME in signal processing), IITB SysCon or NITIE PGDIE?

A
Admin Posted On : August 13th, 2021
It is best to either secure a job either at a government-run organization, PSU, or go for NITIE. You can opt for either option. You need to obtain the best offer at the end of the day, and securing a position in the job sector might be a good decision. Apart from that, if you do not share a valuable amount of interest in the PSU, then joining NITIE Mumbai might be the best option for you.  You will get the chance to witness several big firms visiting the campus, alongside the addition of value to your profile and simultaneous growth. In terms of the technical courses, you should definitely research more about them, as per your requirements.

Which is better, IISc or IIT Bombay?

KJ
Keshav Jindal Posted On : August 12th, 2021
IISc should be your ultimate choice. It is a premier institute and everyone wants a chance to study there.  We cannot compare IISc Bangalore with IIT Bombay as they both specialize in different fields. IISc majorly focuses on research and science, hence considered as a research-based institute. IIT Bombay, on the other hand, is a technical institute and if you want to pursue a career in engineering, then it will be the place.  Now, when it comes to a successful career, it is subjective and it cannot be guaranteed anywhere. You must have the relevant skills and knowledge to excel in any field. If you want a career in the USA in a fully-funded course, go for IISc Bangalore.

Which one is better: PGDIE at NITIE or MTech in nanoscience at IISc?

ZP
Zakia Parween Posted On : August 11th, 2021
It all actually depends on your interest. As both of these options are completely different and two different areas of interest. You must choose what you find interesting. There would not be any conflict between these two institutes over the placement stats as both of them will give good placements to their students. Here are the recent placement highlights of the institutes. Parameters NITIE IISc Average CTC 20 LPA 10 LPA Highest CTC 43 LPA 40 LPA Major recruiters ETLI, EY, IDFC First HP, Dell, Intel If you are interested in tough work that is more challenging or research and development-oriented, you should choose IISc. As in the world of Nanoscience, IISc is the country’s most renowned institution. And if you are more inclined towards managerial work, then it would be better to go to NITIE.

Are jobs in IISc Bangalore,IITs and IIMs government jobs or private?

KJ
Keshav Jindal Posted On : July 29th, 2021
Having friends who study in these colleges, I have gathered some information about this. IISc Bangalore, IITs, and IIMs are institutes funded by the government for the most part. They are government-owned entities and the employees get the same salaries, perks, and benefits you would receive from a typical government-run institute. However, they are also autonomous or self-managed. IITs, IIMs and IISc Bangalore are also not technically government employees even though they enjoy similar benefits. They are not owned by private individuals or corporations and thus the jobs offered are both from private sectors and government sectors. The companies that take part in their placement programs include Mindtree, CitiBank, HSBC, Reliance, L&T, Saint Gobain, KPMG, NTPC, IOCL, JP Morgan, BPCL, ONGC, Goldman Sachs, etc.
