What differentiates IIT's from rest of the engineering colleges in India

Every young student in India dreams of getting into IIT, but ever thought what's so special about IIT's?
I asked this question to many students and parents and these are some of the popular answers I got

1. They have very high standards of teaching.
2. They teach very well in the campus.
3. All the students in IIT get placed.
4. Students are offered high pay packages in the campus.
5. They have very big campuses and excellent laboratories.
6. Students get their education almost free at IIT's.
7. IIT's have the finest professors in India.
8. The environment at IIT is very competitive and healthy.
9. Students get international exposure.
10. Students need not worry about the future once they get into IIT.

Fortunately I have many friends who got their education from IIT, I thought to get an insight from them about the IIT factor.
Surprisingly most of the above mentioned points about IIT is a myth and some of them are absolutely a truth. IIT is synonymous to hard-work and dedication which begins even before someone gets into it and continues forever in their life if they have an aspiration.

Let me put up a question in front of my readers, how many students are hired from IIT campuses to Facebook, Google or Intel? How many are hired by TCS, Infosys or HCL?

The fact is 60% of them are hired by the bulk recruiters like TCS and Infosys like companies and only one (1) or two (2) are hired by companies like Facebook, Google or Intel. The question is why? (Surprised)

Yes that's the truth.... But wait don't get in a hurry to queue up IIT's with rest of the colleges in India. IIT's are not bad or average because Facebook and Google did not bulk hire there.

IIT's are not known to produce labors but they are know to create entrepreneurs.  During their entire course students are taught to be thought leaders and visionaries. They are confident and the surrounding around them gives them the ability to take risk which is fundamentally the most important aspect for becoming an entrepreneur.

An average students with his limited knowledge and resources knows very well that in order to survive he needs a job like everyone rest in the world, he cannot risk his future for experiments (like trying a start-up after college) which is  good for him.

On the other hand an IITian knows that he can always get a job in the market and he should focus his learning and energy today on his idea for a business. This attitude of them makes most of the youngsters successful no matter what they do.

Consider the example of Mukesh Ambani or Anil Ambani would they have ever thought of getting a job in order to secure comfortable life? Absolutely no... They knew their father The Great Dhiru Bhai Ambani has made enough fortune for them to live a comfortable life, so what did they do? They used their fathers platform to launch their big ideas into realities. Today's truth is that the collective fortune of Ambani brothers is 100 times more then their father's wealth. How was it possible? I believe it was only because of the confidence, guidance and inspiration their father gave to them and of course not to forget their hard work they put into their dream.

To summarize in the context of a IITian his surrounding (The success stories of ex-IITians), hard-work, guidance of able professors and support of fellow students gives them the ability to think out of the box and of course the worth-mentioning incubation center provided by the institution to support their start-up ideas are the reasons for the success of IIT students.

This was a little glimpse of the reasons for the success of the IITians and their real differentiating factor from others. We will soon cover a story that would help students of non-IIT to get at par with their peers in IIT.
