Pursued Second Year
Batch : 2017
Master of Technology [M.Tech] (Disaster Management)
Entrance Preview
Indian Statistical Institute conducts its own entrance examination followed by interview. It was in the month of May, 2015. There were two papers in the written test. One was on Maths and the other was on Computer Science. Then I was shortlisted for the interview. After clearing the interview, I got admitted to Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.
Fee Structure And Facilities
We do not have any tuition fee at ISI. But the stipend is a bit less. We get 8000 rupees per month and an annual contingency of 5000 rupees. We had to pay 3000 rupees for the library.
Placement Wing
The whole batch who are interested to go for job get placed every year. The average package is around 15-18lpa. The highest package till now is around 24lpa in our batch. Companies like Microsoft, Directi, IBM Research lab, Goldman Sachs, Samsung Research Lab, TCS Innovation lab, ICICI bank, American Express and many others already came. A lot more to come.
Faculty
In ISI, all faculties are very dedicated with their research work. But, apart from research, they spend a lot of time for the benefit of their students. They are ready to help a student. If anyone is interested to learn more, they are ready to extend their hands. Whenever a student needs their assistance, they are ready to help them. All faculties are from the top institutes all over India.
Exam Structure
The labs are very hectic. But we enjoy it as we were taught in a very different way. We have our midsem as well as end sem exams. We have huge syllabus for the exams. But, since everything is covered in the class, so one will understand everything if one attends class regularly.
Course Curriculum Overview
The course structure is a bit hectic. We had to attain lots of classes. We had altogether 17 compulsory subjects along with dissertation and internships which are all compulsory part of the program. We get very few hours to focus on our dissertation. But the quality of classes is excellent. Also, all the subjects are taught very well and in depth. There are assignments which we have to do all through the year.
Internships Opportunities
Yes, internship is the compulsory part of our course. I went to Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as summer research intern. In Singapore, they provided me with accommodation, airfare, visa expenses and also 600 SGD per month.

College Events We celebrate freshers, farewell in our department as well as in our hostels. We also have some cultural fest in the month of Jan where we have some inter college dance competition in our ISI auditorium. We also have some great artists who visit us during the college fest. We have a three day long fest

The best possible place to learn Statistics and enjoy the college life in India.
Placements: Normally students continue for Masters programmes at ISI. Almost every student has got either an internship or doing some summer projects. Average placement offer is 17-18 l. p. a. Companies like Goldman Sachs, Walmart, Reliance, Capital One, Deloitte, Novartis, Samsung, United Bank of Switzerland etc. Comes for placements. Students are offered senior or junior analyst posts. Besides these students get into top universities in the USA like standard, John Hopkins, North Carolina State University, University of Pennsylvania, Berkley, Texas etc. For Ph.D. purposes.
Infrastructure: Free Wi-Fi for students and workers and teachers. Medical unit for emergencies and every student has a mediclaim policy in his/her name issued by the institute. Sports like football, cricket, table tennis, badminton, volleyball are encouraged. Canteen food is good and cheap. But the student's mess food is not that good. Hostel rooms are awesome and single sharing with bathrooms double sharing. LAN connection in every room.
Faculty: Faculty is world class. Course structure is a bit rigid but good for development of statistical knowledge. As happens to every college some teachers teach good and some bad but overall it's good. Semester system is there in the institute. Student to faculty ratio is approximately 2. Students interested in jobs get industry exposure. I am interested in research.


Other: The whole year is full of activities. Starting from freshers there are various hostel events (quizzes, inter batch games, cultural nights, Treasure Hunt, Nemesis, farewell etc.). And more importantly Integration the annual techno-cultural-sports fest of ISI Kolkata happens every year. Well connected by metro, and rail station. A bit outskirt of the city. Campus is full of greenery. Every student gets a handsome scholarship either by the institute or from other sources if they satisfy some conditions. Gyms, and different kinds of music learning facilities are available for the students.

ISI Placement Details (2015–17 Batches):
ISI Kolkata has MSTAT, MMATH, MSQE, MTECH QROR & M TECH CS Courses. Many students are joining PhDs in ISI or USA Universities after MSTAT, MMATH, MSQE, MTECH CS. Job Placement of MMATH, MTECH CS is not good as compared to other three courses. But for MATH, MTCH CS PhD Placements are good. Average salary offers here are around 16 LPA. Minimum Salary offered this year was 9 LPA & Maximum salary offered was 34 LPA (within India).
ISI Bangalore has MATH, MSQMS, MSLIS. Placement of MMATH & MSQMS are good. Minimum Salary offered this year was 10 LPA & Maximum salary offered was 15 LPA (within India) & 35 LPA (in Dubai). Job profiles are : Business Analyst & Data Scientist. Many students are joining PhDs in ISI or USA Universities after MMATH & MSQMS. Now, MSLIS is a DRTC Course on Library science, so you can’t expect analytics jobs as other people get at ISI.
ISI Delhi has an MSQE Course. The best pg Economics course in Asia. It’s marvelous in terms of PhD Placements. Many students are joining PhDs in ISI or USA Universities after MSQE. Average salary offers here are around 15 LPA. Minimum Salary offered this year was 10 LPA & Maximum salary offered was 25 LPA (within India).

ISI Tezpur & Giridih Centre offer Post Graduate Diplomas in Computer Applications (PGDCA) & PGD in Statistical Methods & Analytics (PGDSA). These are the north east 1 year courses. People only know about ISI Kolkata, Bangalore & Delhi. So industries don’t reach there & you can’t expect good placement (as par with other ISI Masters Courses) being a 1 yr Diploma students. Still PGDCA Students get placed in TCS with a salary of 5.5 LPA. But I have no idea whether PGDCA has placement or not

Remarks
Most student friendly campus I've ever seen. Everyone is eager to help.
Fee Structure And Facilities
If I remember correctly, students need to pay admission fees at the time of admission. Rest College pays stipend. But those who reside in hostels, they have to bear hostel+mess charges.
Placement Wing
Since I graduated a long time back, I don't have exact figures. Interested people may visit it's website, for current status.
Hostel Facilities
I didn't stay at the hostel. So won't be able to give you gory details. But that's not gonna be too rosey, I guess.
Alumni
Students are well placed all over the world in industry and research fields as well. And they do organize Alumni meets. Seniors help in the recruitment process.
Faculty
Some of the best known faculty in their Respective field. Some of them are IEEE fellows. Some of them got the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar award for their outstanding contribution.
Campus Life
One of the quietest campuses. I guess people are busy studying. But they are dull boys. There are inter division football tournaments, Badminton games, volly-ball matches. They have an annual cultural program named "Integration" .
Exam Structure
Semester wise Exams. There can be open-book tests also. Exams are pretty simple, if studied properly.
Course Curriculum Overview
It's at par with any of the premier institutes. For Computer science they had courses such as Computer Architecture, Operating Systems, Algorithm, Optimization , Discrete Math, compiler, VLSI -cad etc.
Internships Opportunities
ISI provides stipend during the course work. Students go outside the campus for internships. Based on their interest, they either prefer industry or prefer school for their internship.
College Events
Technical symposium keeps on happening there. IndoCrypt is one of them. Researchers for various universities keep visiting here and they deliver lectures on vogue topics.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions You don't need extra loans to finance the course. Having said that, there are several scholarships awarded to those who excels in the course and wanna go in the research fiel
