When it comes to studying at an IIT, people have the misconception that IITians are studious dweebs, who can't break out of the humdrum monotony of their schedules; trapped in an perpetual loop of assignments, quizzes, vivas and semester examnations. Nothing could be further from the truth in the case of IITI. With a panoply of activities oraganised under the banner of cultural and technical events, to a multitude of clubs that help the students follow their interests, the students gain an impressive repertoire of skills to show for, apart from academic excellence. Whether it be the performance at inter-IITs, at annual TvsMs, or at international competitions, the students at IITI have consistently shone with full brilliance. With a close knit community of more than 1800 students, students here form strong and lasting friendships for life.
