College Infrastructure
It has all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipments. The campus is very safe to the students. Here all students have 24 hour access to Computer lab equipped with HIgh speed Wi-Fi, library, etc. It has multiple discussion areas where students can gather in a group of three or four and study together without any disturbance.
Academics
I have got admission into Chennai Mathematical Institute, CMI and currently pursuing Bachelor's in Mathematics. Research is the most interesting thing which made me to choose this over another Institutes like IITs, NITs, IIITs, etc. However, I had already got into IIIT Allahabad, but I withdraw my admission just to get into this institute. Since this is one of the prominent institutions for Research, the main focus is Research in Mathematics, Computer Science, Data Science and Physics.
Placements
Placements are much better than any other college. Even being a research institute, it has much better placements even for corporate jobs for those who wants to go for such jobs. It also provides internships. To apply for Internships, one has to write a letter/ mail and request for the same.Complete details can be found at its website.
Value-for-money
Fee structure is very feasible. The annual fee for Bachelor courses is Rs. 200000 per annum (excluding hostel and mess charges which is Rs. 25,000 per semester). However, the students who qualify for admission to CMI and are financially weak to pay the fee, are granted scholarship on their financial background. The best scholarship which it provides is Shriram Scholarship which is given to some top scorers in its entrance exam. It provides full waiver of tuition fee and Rs. 5000 monthly stipend.
Campus Life
It has good campus life, better than any other prominent institution in India. It also has an annual event, TESSELLATE. It is held by students and research scholars at CMI. One main sub event is STEMS which is an online exam conducted during TESSELLATE. The top 50 scorers in the exam are invited for a 3 days fully funded camp at CMI and these students are exposed to mathematical research with prominent Mathematicians, Statisticians from all over the world.
Anything Else
Overall, CMI is much useful for students who are having keen interest in Mathematics and are particularly interested for Research.

One of the best institutes in India for preparing oneself to be a research scholar in Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics in future. With a team of excellent faculty members, relevant syllabus, enjoyable hostel-life and also a library with excellent online cataloging system, this is the place to be for Maths-enthusiasts specially. On top of all these, CMI has a regular exchange programmer with the Ecol Normal Superior (ENS) in France. ENS is one of the leading academic institutions in the world, with an admission procedure that is as selective as that of the IITs. Alumni of ENS have gone on to win eleven Nobel prizes and seven Fields Medals (the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in Mathematics). Each year, the two top-ranking senior BSc students from CMI spend the summer at ENS working on research problems with faculty there. In return, four PhD students from ENS visit CMI each year to participate in research and teaching.

"CMI is one of the finest college in India for BSc and also MSc in mathematics.Not only that it also provides degree in Computer Science or Physics also according to students choice.The faculties here are too good.Students are admitted here by entrance exam,so the quality of studies here is very good.Its placements are also very satisfactory.Students here have both the options of doing Ph.D. and also doing jobs. Now,talking about its hostel,one must say about its friendly atmosphere.Ph.D,MSc ,BSc all students live in the same hostel,helping each other in studies and other needs.Most importantly girls also live in the same hostel,just in a seperate wing.The Hostel is completely neat and clean.Each room is shared by two students and every student gets enough space and furniture sufficient to one's need.There is a mess which provides breakfast,lunch and dinner regularly.Menu s are decided by students themselves via meeting.They also run a night canteen on instant payment basis.There are a football ground where football is played on regular basis.There are also a table tennis board for students.There are also arrangements for chess,carrom etc indoor games and also a trademill.So a student can easily maintain a sound body. There is a two storied library with lots of books managed by a well organised computer based system called 'Koha'.There is also a computer lab with 32 computers.Each CMI student has there own account and college email id which they can use for academic and other purpose. So,if a student has real knack for Mathematics or Computer Science he can choose CMI as one of his first choice,study here and be fully satisfied. "
