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.

IITians Review

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

is it necessary to write the GATE exam to get into IIT Madras even after writing JEE advanced

Shareef 13th Feb, 2020

GATE is the entrance exam for admission to Masters programmes for Engineering and Science Graduates. JEE Advanced is the entrance exam for admission to IITs, NITs,etc. for B.Tech programmes. GATE is for PG courses and JEE Advanced is for B.Tech courses. Both of them are different. If you want to study B.E/B.Tech in IIT Madras, you should write JEE Advanced and if you want to study Master's programme, you should write GATE exam.
