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

iam general oc how many marks I has to score in gate to get m tech seat in IIT madras

Aman Raj Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020

Hello Tarun

Getting a seat for Mtech is totally dependent on the branch or stream you are applying. Without knowing your Branch how can i predict the rank.

But still in General if you are in (Civil, Mech or EE) then you will have to get under 400-500(Rank) to get a IITM seat.

what stream should I choose in iit Bombay or in iit Madras or iit delhi kharagpur or in any iits or I can get admission in iit bombay through uceed or ceed or gate ,if yes than please tell me that what is the procedure that how I can take admission because this year i am in class 11.................

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020


see gate and ceed exam is not for you as you are in 11th , gate or ceed  exam can be attempted  by candidates who are already graduate or in final year of graduation in relevant discipline.

as you want to take admission in iits, you need to apply for uceed exam which is the undergraduate design entrance of iits, also you need to apply for jee main exam, which is the common entrance test of engineering, basis on jee main score candidates may appear in jee advance exam, which is the gate way entrance exam of admission in iits for btech courses.

hope it would help.


Hi Everyone I really want a fair suggestion whether I should apply for IIT Kharagpur and IIT Madras MBA programs? I have secured 95.31 in Cat, in dialemma because of low marks in 10th(68.4) , while in B.Tech and 12th has more than 80 and has 2 yrs of work ex. Thanks in Advance!

Sampriti Student Expert 15th Jan, 2020
You should go for VGSOM IIT Kharagpur. Though both are equally good colleges and you'll have good academic programs over there but VGSOM has a great reputation among corporates and has a stronger alumni base at higher levels as compared to IIT Madras. These  colleges condider only the overall CAT percentile which should be minimum 90.Your previous records won't be a huge concern if you perform well in the subsequent selection rounds. With your scores you can also check out colleges like
  • MDI Gurgaon
  • IMI Delhi
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • XIMB Bhubaneshwar
  • Sailesh j Mehta School of Management
  • Department of Financial Studies, University of Delhi and others.

Good Luck
