IIIT Hyderabad - My 1st week

Secured a place for Mtech CSE after clearing the PGEE exam (Paper-1 and Paper-2) of Tripple IIIT Hyderabad which was followed by a interview.

The college is really great and one won't expect it to be very disciplined in each aspect (there is a common view of all indian colleges, but this one is different). Mainly being computer science oriented, students are given projects that are in actual production and helping the college administration and day to day life.
