The IISC Bangalore campus has 1500 acres of land allotted by the Government of Karnataka in 2009 in Challakere Taluk of Chitradurga District. The other campus of IISC being set up in Kudapura village is officially known as "Challakere Campus ". It is 220 km far from Bangalore, and it takes almost four hours to reach the premises from Bangalore city.
The following facilities located in different parts of the IISC Bangalore campus make regular life smooth and much more comfortable. Moreover, these IISC Bangalore facilities have made the Indian Institute of Science Bengaluru a totally self-sufficient campus.
Overall: Pros : Excellent Faculty Good Exposure and Brand Value of an IISCian Inclination Towards research Motivational Students High Value for Education Value for Money and Good Placement Cons: Highly Competitive Too many projects Loads of Stress Excessive Assignments Getting out is much more difficult than getting in.
Overall: All the professors at IISC, Bangalore are more than willing to help if you have doubts regarding a question or a potential hypothesis. And there are courses catering to specific topics like microscopy, NMR, protein sequencing which include both theory and practicals.
Overall: One thing is for sure, IISc is a great place for learning - advanced facilities in equipment in all fields of research, great journals Library, provision to take an elective course in any department ( as Electrical Engg student, I took 50% of courses in Chemistry, Physics, ECE, Instrumentation, & Management depts for my specialization on LEDs), and possibility for cross-disciplinary research pursuits.
Overall: IISc is a temple of science. Studying on this campus is a great opportunity. We get exposure to all disciplines of science and mild exposure to Humanities. I DON'T agree with what others feel about IISc making it sound like a nonsense course. In fact, the course does not focus on a single subject but rather takes an interdisciplinary approach to the sciences. I feel that this approach is crucial nowadays as the various disciplines of science do not have a clear-cut boundary. This is the 21st century and just studying one discipline of science won't do any good to you. A bit of everything is always better.
Overall: You have a lot of extra-curricular activities that you can take part in. Almost every sport, cultural activity, etc have clubs which you can join. You can start learning instruments, you can volunteer to teach children, etc. It has been an amazing 2 months for me here. Classes like humanities provide us a platform to interact with eminent people and put forth our opinions and debate about them, like for example the ethics of science and stuff. There are absolutely zero raggings on the campus. The seniors have been great, have become great friends, and help whenever needed.
