IIIT Pune with its small history has reached great heights owing to its highly motivated students, faculty members, and every member associated with the institute. IIIT Pune is the best thing that could have happened to me. Right from the mentorship and comfort that the Director Sir provides us to the friendly behavior of the wardens and associated staffers, I can assure you will never be away from home. You get to prepare for the world; the competitive environment and continuous deadlines push you beyond your limits and helps you understand the value of your work. This, combined with the academic effort to push practical projects into each course, enables you to develop the required skills and develop yourself into a professional being. I have grown beyond what I could have at some other place. Then be it higher education or placements the efforts and results are remarkable. Looking back over the years I am forever grateful to this institute for taking me and crafting a way for me to the career of my choice.
