      Interesting ongoing journey at CMI

      Verified Review
      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.


      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 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.


      Overall, CMI is much useful for students who are having keen interest in Mathematics and are particularly interested for Research.
