There's a lot of exposure and harmony. you have to study and enjoy. college life is at its best with a beautiful campus. the faculties are not up to the mark and the compulsory attendance is a pain. hostels are good and have all the facilities. central library is the best place. there are a lot of eateries, affordable at the same time. the life is good here but people are very practical.

Excellent infrastructure and corporate exposure. Competitive students and ample opportunities to bring the best out of you. Gender Ratio is low but a diverse culture of students from various parts of the country and background is there. Getting into the college is tough but, it is worth the hardwork that you put in to get into the college.

IIT-M is an institute to aspire for. I have known students who studied there did continue with their higher studies there itself and got settled in one form or other.None cold separates them for they were so obsessed with the super-duper Campus and so made up their minds to settle for life time in ITT-M. It is one of the best even known self-contained Campuses par excellence.The only glitch (really sickening) that I used to face while pursuing my higher research-studies there, in early-80s, was the "total lack of cooperation" from staff members 'at Workshops' -- their behavior and attitude towards students and researchers were not up to the mark/expectations, a truly disgusting experience, unpardonable. With the changes in the Leadership and remuneration packages for better, now the story must be very favourable. In my considered reckoning, every parent MUST encourage their children to dream for studying in IIT-M and help prepare them to realize their Dreams -- you will not regret not your children if an opportunity is there to get engaged with this Institute.

IIT is known for the brand value all around the world and IIT Madras is definitely one of the best IITs in India. I joined this magnificent institution last Year. It was my dream since childhood to get a place in one of the most prestigious institute in India. Once you enter the gate you feel the lush green campus calling out for you. The Campus is Eco-friendly, filled with lots of trees and of course deers ! It is a perfect stage to find out your talent and develop your skills. IIT has much to offer than one could possibly imagine.

One will get a lot of exposure to industries, various experiments happening all around the globe. Apart of all technical qualifications of IITM needless to say, the communication opportunities available at IITM are immense. People from all parts of the nation meet here and study and do research together which allows and helps in developing one's personality and behaviour too. The campus had 80% placements , which is good. The placement team of IITM strive for the benefit and placement of every eligible person. The highest placement package will be mostly given to computer science students. This year, the highest package is around one cross per annum has been touched. Coming to infrastructure, there will be a very good Wi-Fi and internet facility. Every person associated with IITM has their login ID and password so that one can access the internet. The classrooms are good and clean and big and can fit at least 100 members. The labs, medical facilities and sports and games are given preference in this institution. Considering faculty, every faculty is IITM are well qualified regarding quality and quantity. Every faculty of i IITM has the post graduate as well as post doctorate degree from the world's best universities. The teaching quality of marvelous and tremendous. Doing intern and projects under those faculties will help us learn more. They are probably the best in the country. The facilities available here are quite amazing. The quality of the food is decent but it's just that you should be switching meses from time to time. Hostel rooms are smaller than I imagined but it is decent for a single person. Infrastructure related issues occur but are taken care of as soon as possible

General Information

About College: The Indian Institute of Technology in Chennai (Madras) has like the other older IITs has become synonymous with excellence. It is often remarked how in India, kids hear more about the IITs when they are growing up, than about their cousins, such as the rush towards reaching this very top. Lakhs of students from all over the country enrol themselves over countless hours of coaching classes in order to secure a seat among these IITs. Within this elite list of institutions, there is a super- elite subgroup known as the original IITs, which is a group of the 7 original ones which are – Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kharagpur, Kanpur, Guwahati and Roorkee. Securing a seat at the IITs is done through a rigorous selection process involving the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination). This is the largest entrance exam in the country in terms of numbers and possibly amongst the largest in the world. This paper is given by more than 12 lakh people annually. It is a 3- hour exam worth 90 marks constituting 3 segments with equal weightage. Those segments are- Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics. The best of the performers, totalling roughly 2 lakhs of them are further shortlisted for the JEE Advanced which is for selection to the IITs. The JEE Advanced is conducted over 2 rounds on the same day. The morning paper which runs from 9 am till noon is followed by a break and then another 3 hour one. The pattern, however, is not so well understood as the marks pattern is not clearly defined. It keeps changing annually. All this effort means that the acceptance rate is minuscule, standing at around 0.5% for IIT- Madras in stark contrast to global luminaries such as MIT, Stanford or UC Berkeley standing at 7.5%, 4.8% and 17.5% respectively. Admissions to the master’s level programmes is via the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering).It was founded in 1959 with assistance from the then West Germany. The campus is perched right next to one of the prominent national parks in the state of Tamil Nadu. Due to this location, wildlife sightings are quite common here. The campus is also large measuring about 617 acres in area. Several courses can be pursued at the IITM. This includes the B. Tech, M. Tech, MBA, MSc. and even an MA. There is also a dual degree. The academics is run by the respective departments which are in- Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Engineering Design, Mathematics, Applied Mechanics, Biotechnology, Computer Science & Engineering, Physics, Ocean Engineering and Metallurgical & Materials Engineering. Realizing its importance over the coming years, the IIT- KGP even has a specialized Humanities and Social Sciences wing. The IIT in Chennai is particularly well- endowed when it comes to forging international relations. It has inked agreements of various sorts with the likes of – National University of Singapore (NUS), Deakin University in Australia, Michigan State University in the USA, Heidelberg University in Germany, Ecole Centrale de Nantes in France, Nanyang Technological University in China and National Chiao Tung University from Taiwan besides several others. To facilitate further applied research and development, the IITM has set up several specialized centres within the campus. There are centres for- Continuing Education, Technology & Policy, Innovation, Computational Brain Research, Data Sciences & AI besides several others. There is an IIT Madras Bio-incubator as well to foster a spirit of entrepreneurship and help budding entrepreneurs’ ideas incubate. There is also an initiative by which students could learn the Chinese language while studying here. All this has helped the IIT in Chennai be featured very highly across most national or international rankings. It has been ranked the first in the country among engineering colleges by the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) and 2nd overall. The Week has also ranked the college 4th within the category all India. The highly- acclaimed QS World University Rankings places it at 264th for the world, 48th for Asia and 18th among the BRICS nations. A lot of this has been possible due to the presence of its top-notch alumni network. Companies founded by IITM alumni includes- Junglee, Sycamore Networks, Aranca Research, Fairfax Financial Holdings and Kosmix besides others. Many of the alumni have also been recipients of the Shanti Swaroop Bhatnagar Prize which is considered one of the highest honours for research in fundamental or applied science. As the IIT Madras has been associated with excellence for so long, placements have likewise been among the very best in the country. A total of 254 companies participated in the placement process in 2018, which makes it almost 1 company for every two students. Some of the top recruiters have been the likes of – ICICI, TCS, Flipkart, HSBC, Cisco, Axis Bank, Oyo, Barclays, Samsung, Microsoft, Intel, Dell, IOCL, Paytm, HCL, KPMG AND American Express.
