Women make up about 18 to 20 per cent of every classroom. (Graphics by Abhishek Mitra)Mechanical engineering is not for women; don’t join an IIT, there are hardly any women there; be ready to face comments if you’re taking admission under the supernumerary quota for girls. If you are a woman aspiring to join the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), statements such as these may have caused confusion.

With an aim to cancel all such notions, IIT Bombay conducted an ‘Open House’ session for women who qualified JEE Advanced this year to help them understand academics and life at the institute better. The session, which was held online on Tuesday, had an elaborate panel of professors and students addressing apprehensions and questions from female aspirants and their parents about the environment, opportunities, and safety measures at IIT Bombay.

The panel included Subhasis Chaudhuri, Director of the IIT Bombay, Suryanarayana Doolla, Chairman JEE Advanced, Prita Pant of metallurgy engineering department, Pooja Purang, convenor of the gender cell at IIT Bombay, Preeti Jyoti of the computer science engineering department and students Aarushi Chaudhary, Divyashree Tambade, Kirti Agrawal, and Vidushi Verma. Professor Meera Raghunandan, Department of Civil engineering, was the moderator of the panel.

Here are a few questions answered by the panel:

Are there any engineering branches that are not suitable for women?
