My stay at IIIT-Delhi was very fruitful. Talking about the academics in IIIT-Delhi, I can't find any reason to recall a negative point about my professors or academic schedule. Yes, at times having 3 exams on 1 day use to be too much but it also had its own fun. What I liked the most in IIIT-Delhi was the competitive environment, No matter how difficult it was for me to tackle courses + projects + assignments together but I always loved it. I love the way our professors were always ready to help us, no matter what the time.
