College Infrastructure
IITM has all the necessary infra that a student might need. We have spacious classrooms with mutiple blackboards, 24x7 WiFi, projectors and speakers. We have a plethora of labs for various uses. We have an air conditioned library which runs for 15hrs a day.
Academics
The acads are pretty good when compared to other colleges although i must say that a lot of profs are more interested in their research rather than teaching. But their are a few profs who are legends in their teaching efficacy
Placements
Around 80% of the students get placed here. The placement team works very hard and is very supportive to keep the process smooth for every stakeholder. The average salary is around 12 LPA CTC in MM dept.
Value-for-money
Being a centrally funded institute we get a lot of benefits at a subsidized rate. This is much more than value of money. The course cost per year is about 4.5 lakhs including hostel and mess fees. This is approx half of what you would be paying in private colleges
Campus Life
The college campus as a whole is pretty nice and encouraging. It has its share of pros and cons but overall you'll love the freedom, lush greenery, wildlife (monkeys sometimes are a pain but you learn to live with them), etc

College Infrastructure
I think it has all the necessary infrastructure , facilities and equipment. Classroom has all the facilities as good WiFi, projector, mic, good speaker. These are available for use and well maintained. Living spaces are also clean . Food hygiene sometimes has some issues .
Academics
I am in chemical department. Honestly there is no reason to choose it just due to my rank. The quality of teaching is ok , not that great, but some prof are really good. Yeah curriculum is updated and has include all recent developments.
Placements
In India, I think it has one of the best quality of placement. Around 85% students are placed. In chemical department, the highest salary package goes upto 32lpa . Average salary offered is around 12lpa. College is very supportive in the placement process.

College Infrastructure
The campus is next to Guindy national park. It is in flora and the fauna mostly consists of deers and dogs. Many sporting activities are there. The city is near to campus. The campus has few old buildings but they are equipped with all facilities. New buildings have first class facilities. There are facilities for a lot of research.
Academics
Finest in the country. The academics are slightly tough but it's worth it. There is a lot of focus on courses. Attendance is slightly strict. One has to maintain 85%. But the quality is the best one can get.
Placements
Best placements. Obviously same as other IITs. A lot offers are made from top companies. 900 -1000 people get placed every year. Jobs are mostly in computer science domain. A lot of core companies do come for placements.
Value-for-money
The government gives a lot of subsidies. The fee has been hiked compared to the previous fee. But compared to other private colleges or universities, it is the best.
Campus Life
There are lot of activities to do in the campus. Sports, music, dance, coding, start-ups and a lot. You are literally living in a forest. The cycle ride in the campus is awesome.

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

IIT Madras is a nice institute among what I have seen in my life. The mech department is the biggest of all with 66 faculty. There is a good relation between professors and companies. So if a student wants a challenging project he can directly go to the professors. We have an incubation cell. It give a lot of inputs to emerging startups. Please come to IIT madras if you want to excell in engineering.

College infrastructure includes swimming pool, the Knowledge center(library) with a wide range of books, air conditioned classrooms (only a few), renewable sources of energy like solar panels and solar heaters. The company of friends from various backgrounds is the best thing we get here. People from all over India come here to study a wide number of courses available. Talking about facilities in hostel, we have water dispensers in every wing or floor, we have a TV room, a TT(Table Tennis) room, a hostel library, a music room and also a tech room. We have solar heaters and a good water supply. Talking about affordability recent rise in the fee structure makes it a bit difficult for general category middle class families but the various number of scholarships that one can get can cover that.

IIT Madras is a place filled with ample amount of opportunities. The infrastructure is one the best among government colleges. The freedom given here is the best part. But it is not soon you will realize that freedom comes with responsibility. Too much of freedom sometimes spoils us. There is always a tendency you develop here of "Putting too much effort towards the end (Last night pains before exams)". The famous saying of "Once you come to IIT , your life is settled" is the biggest lie you can hear. Of course it is true for people who use the various opportunities here. I am one of the persons who wasted these chances to groom myself during my initial year. Speaking of infrastructure and facilities I feel IITM provides much more than satisfactory levels. There are few professors like from structural engineering department who are really good at inspiring young students towards pursuing a career in core.

Labs and teaching methods incorporated by professors are very good. We have to go for compulsory industry or research internship for about three months as part of curriculum. We have numerous clubs where we can join according to our interest and participate in their activities. Hostels are also pretty good, very clean and friendly environment. Student crowd is very interactive and helpful in all sorts of matter.

Beginning with the entrance which always matters. Wonderful .Nature. Serene.Beautiful. I'm having so many adjectives which itself might suffice for the whole review. Lush green approach to the main point of the campus which is the Gajendra circle. Lazy engineers hence call it GC. Branching off to two sides from there. One to the academic section. Other to the hostels , library, departmental stores etc. Infrastructure wise I would not say that it is a aww to the eyes but yes.. You will definitely llike it no matter what. Simple and beautiful.Well the mess building doesn;t look like one. Atleast when I first stepped in here I thought of it as some fun place or basically a shopping centre. Blew my mind the next day as people were calling it a mess. Hostels have a good functional design . Leave apart the tower hostels. They can be called a nightmare come to life. The older hostels compensate for that. Department buildings are simple. Not much to talk about it. CRC being the class room complex has again a good functional design. The ground floor classrooms are uncomparable. Well no wonder students sleep in the morning 8am classes. Or rather they sleep always because it has something called AC which we very dearly miss in the hostels. Facilities are available in plenty. Whatever isn't inside is gettable just with a step outside the campus. No complaints about food centers which matters the most in a college student's life. Also matters to the moms more than us. They never change. Canteen available 24*7 also for those insomniacs who prefer gossip over a chai to tea over sleep . Well memories are created . Hence no complaints :) . Movies can be downloaded thorugh the intra hostel network. One of our lifelines here. You know what I mean. Mostly at the times of poor internet crisis. Gurunath stores. Well they are life savers. Got everything. If it's someone whom students owe a real treat to it is them. Remember the time during floods. They provided items for free. I mean pay later ( nothing comes for free ). Academics - Well I'm not the right person to talk about this. But nevermind .. maggus are busy studying. To be frank , the huge praises I had heard outside insti an what i'm experiencing vary a lot. Well that differs from proffesor to proffesor actually. Some profs have world class research but teach very poorly . Some are really excellent at teaching and you won't feel like missing any classes. Leave apart the teaching .. academic oppurtunities to avail are too many. Your institute mail is flooded with mails from universities abroad inviting you for an exchange semester, internship oppurtunities and also various companies opening up avenues for the grads to work with them. Also start a new start up. Well oppurtunities are plenty. Just that you have to know the right way to avail them. And also the right ones to avail. Can't get everything. Finally coming to the CGPA. I'm still searching for the senior who told me that CGPA doesn't matter. It does to a great extent. Keep it above 8 or 8.5 and you are free to sail happily. I mean if you choose to be happy and not greedy for more. Students - Well . If my facebook friends are taken and placed on the maps according to their hometown the whole map would be traced. Also some would step overseas. The foreign exchange ones. Made so many new friends from the country, Got to know about various cultures. Their language. And yeah .The homefood they bring. Those people are friends forever. Placements - No comments. I'm in my third year. Affordable - Yes from my side. That was it I guess . Can talk about my second home a lot but prefer to end it here . Simply saying - " A paradise you've earned for 4 straight years " .!

The Indian Institute of Technology Madras known for its excellency in engineering has been a life changing experience. The kind of exposure you get here is really a fantastic one. We have several clubs like Auto club, literary club, music club and most importantly centre for innovation that lies the basic platform for all the freshers to lead their technical life. As a matter of fact CFI is the best hands-on exposure which any fresher would aspire for. The competition which you get from your fellow friends is a major driving factor in pushing your academic records. You have abundant resources that helps a student to show a holistic development. We have insti sports team as well as hostel teams to get exposure towards sports. we were provided with internet facilities 24*7 that has made us to work round the clock. The diversity among students is a major hurdle which anybody needs to jump over. If you get adjusted to IIT culture then undoubtedly you can get adjusted to any situation. On the whole IIT Madras is the best to spend your 4 or 5 years to gain knowledge about your technical life.

Insti gave me good life, friends who will last for life. College has really good infrastructure, the amount we pay is no where justified for the facilities they provide us. Insti always say they encourage enthu people but they finally need people who either have lot of skill or influence(contacts). The two most famous things are said in Insti but shouldn't believe in them are: 1)Enthu is all you need 2) CG doesn't matter. In civil engineering we have pretty good and cool professors. Talking to them and making good relationship with them might help you in getting forward in your carrier. They are the most experienced people in that field after all.

The infrastructure available in the institute is of state-of-the-art quality. It is also easily accessible for the students. The industry exposure should be significantly increased for the students. Although, there is a good practical exposure for the students to gain experience from. The variety of life choices available in the institute surely molded my lifestyle and my thought process. The placement scenario in the campus is one of the best in the country. The hostels are of decent outlook with an average mess food quality. The professors in my institute sure are gems of the country. They are highly knowledgeable. The student diversity enables us to create a highly tolerant and neutral environment unlike most parts of the country.

IIT Madras gives you the opportunity to take a shot at a wide range of domains, which is not common. Each and every student can find something or the other which is interesting, and then also get access to resources which help in doing something worthwhile with this interest. The student body is simply amazing, one can find all kinds of (intelligent) people from everywhere, and there is a healthy sense of competition which is crucial for self-improvement. Faculty is strong and renowned and is considerate towards students' wants and needs.In addition, the campus has essential facilities available to carry out most kinds of trending research work. Graduates have a wide array of options to choose from, mainly under the categories of jobs, higher education, or self-ventures.The access to a powerful alumni network is something with puts IITM a step further. Personal life on campus will be truly memorable. Hostel life is insane in a positive sense with so much to do any time even though the hostels themselves are old-school style and not too fancy. It's also highly affordable compared to other universities. The only downside in my opinion is the lack of female students on campus, which is a barrier to overall social and personal development for male students. I'm currently in my final year of undergraduate studies, and am going to pursue graduate studies after graduating. I can proudly say that I was fortunate to experience all that IITM offered me. It's easily one of the best, if not the best engineering institute in India, and I would strongly recommend IIT Madras to any aspiring engineer.

I have joined the college in 2013. What to say about college, It's one of the best in country. In my childhood I have heard stories that in ancient times education is pursued in forests and it became my dream to get a education like that. My dream came true by joining IIT Madras, such a lovely campus. College provides many opportunities to reinvent yourself in not only in as well as co-curricular and extracurricular activities . The faculty and infrastructure provided to us is great. Faculty are always supporting and guiding us in our careers. The brand of college is enough to attract many international companies to come to our college for hiring the students.The hostel life is best life you can get. One thing to conclude my life would be incomplete if I didn't spend these four years here.

The four years of your college life go a long way in defining who you are as a person, your interests and your goals. I would say I have been very lucky to have been a part of IITM for that. The exposure, your peers, the competition, your friends, the environment, your life overall here is the best you'll ever have. By the time you graduate, you get to witness a much better and upgraded version of yourself and you'll be ever grateful to insti for it. Thank you, insti!

Excellent Infrastructure and faculty at my institute. It has a lot of diversified students. We get to learn a lot of things. It gives a lot of freedom to students. Students have lot of opportunities to pursue according to their wish and goals. Faculties are highly experienced. One can get good industry exposure by working in so many projects offered to the students. Finally one gains a lot of confidence that he/she can do whatever they wanted to do in their life.

At IIT, the professors have good industry contacts and students who are in contact with good professors can avail benefits from it. For example i recently got an intern in one of the top research labs of India via my professors contacts. The infrastructure is good in terms of core electrical equipment. The college experience is enhanced by interaction with active professors and students. Immense research opportunities made my college life fruitful.

The standard of IITs is ever increasing. Recently there have been many advances in the form of budget and the student body (or senate) so the improvement in infrastructure in form of new labs etc is immense. Although the facilities are really good already as compared to any Indian college but now we have reached comparable standards with top ivy league colleges. The industry exposure needs improvement. My college life was made enjoyable due to my peer group and the various societies at our campus. As for the scene of placement, industrial placement was weak this year but placement in R&D has improved.

It is a great experience as we where provided with abundant opportunities to excel technically over the subject and we are even provided with good infrastructure facilities to develop sports.Campus have many extra curricular and co-curricular activities to enrich in arts and sciences too. Here in campus even facilities like gym are provided to maintain fit and healthy lifestyle.

I feel our campus life is nicely divided between fun and study. A lot of time is available with us to pursue our own interests. The Campus of IIT Madras is huge and has everything that is required by a student, whether it is for studies or for leisure. Also, the scenic beauty of the campus is amazingly refreshing.

College life is awesome in IIT Madras. It is situated in the centre of the city and we have access to everything. We have been given full freedom to do whatever we want. This freedom also helps us to choose our own way of living and our own career. Placements are really good. Almost everyone who are decent enough get placed. Infrastructure is superb. Facilities for projects and research works are very good.

Our college provides an exceptional platform to practically experience the learnings through many industrial visits and workshops. Also, we are allowed to do courses in other departments to get different flavor of engineering. The one thing which makes my college life memorable and enjoyable is the diverse student community to which I get exposed to. Hostel is a home to showcase our talents in sports, arts and technology. Dr. Devdas Menon from Civil Engineering Department is exceptional because apart from teaching civil engineering courses, he teaches how to be self-aware in all aspects of life. Studying here is affordable due to scholarships available. Students in our college are like butterflies of different colors doing things with full involvement. This is mainly due to the environment created by IIT Madras to find one's interest and to excel in that field. It is a great opportunity to be a part of campus which has many trees and animals. At the end of the day, IIT Madras gives us a feel of great satisfaction of the work we do and the credits we get.

Exclusive pieces of infrastructure for both educational as well as recreational activities are present. The labs for each and every specialization are present and are maintained very well. Separate grounds for each sport fulfilling its own purpose. Industrial and site visits will be planned. Various opportunities to intern with a company help in enhancing industry exposure. It is a different, calm and peaceful world in itself. Unlimited opportunities from various sectors will be made available through placements. Hostels have sports facilities, music room, library, tech room etc. The faculty is amazing with exceptional educational background and huge network. Being a government institution, a lot of funding will be received by the government, which reduces the budget burden, thus making it affordable.

No words to describe my college life. Undoubtedly IIT-M is one of the best college in India. I feel our campus life is nicely divided between fun and study. A lot of time is available with us to pursue our own interests. The Campus of IIT Madras is huge and has everything that is required by a student, whether it is for studies or for leisure. Also, the scenic beauty of the campus is amazingly refreshing.
