College Infrastructure
I would recommend IIT Madras as the best destination if engineering is the passion you have. Placements: Placements are really great and our college managed it very well. Almost 80% of the students got placed. Google Microsoft, TI, GE, Tata motors are some of the top core companies that visited the campus. The placements are not limited to core areas but also non core areas ranging from finance to consultancy. Infrastructure: Facilities and infrastructure available for us were of top class.
Academics
It's the best out there , the teachers are very great.The teachers were highly qualified and did teach well. We had the choice to choose our courses from lot of relevant courses. Curriculum is designed to be highly challenging and makes you brainstorm preparing one for industry. They try to get best out the students.
Placements
It has great placements in all areas that any person might be interested in especially in my degree as it is full of variety and people from different walks of life. I am assured being the first batch we will break all records.
Value-for-money
Pretty economical , 2.85 lakhs for the whole degree.
Campus Life
Awesome
Anything Else
Best.

Good Infrastructure and facilities. Wifi is available in the academic blocks but not in hostel. We need a LAN cable to get wifi in hostel. They are well maintained. No smart boards are present. Living spaces are clean and food is reasonably hyginic.
Academics
Good quality of teaching but it varies based on professor. I am studying in computer science and engineering. Quality of teaching is good but it also depends on the professor and the portion. It is not very much updated and it is reasonably enough for the jobs.
Placements
Good structure of placement committee. They manage and comfort the students. Good percentage of students are placed in good companies. Average salary is good in our department. The placement process is also good .
Value-for-money
Yes it is worth the money

An awesome campus life

College Infrastructure
Yes it has an excellent infrastructure . We have sufficient facilities and all proper equipments. We have wifi facilities in hostel rooms, classrooms , library and at many places of institution. We have computer facilities in library for the students who can't afford a PC. Every class is equipped with projectors . Yes living spaces are cleaned regularly . Campus is always very clean. Food provided was hygienic but the taste not maintained up to the mark due to that students prefer to eat outside
Academics
I am studying in mechanical engineering , Quality of teaching depends on the proffs in my opinion. Not everyone teach in the way we understand. Yes I think curriculum is updated and includes all recent developments in the field.
Placements
I don't know much about placements but as far as I know about 75% students gets placed. Highest packages was more than 1Cr . It was from Computer science branch. I think average salary offered was around 6-8 lac per annum

College Infrastructure
IIT Madras is already a well-known college and was established way back in 1951. The college has all the necessary infrastructure and equipment and so much more. The classrooms are big enough to accommodate the students. The campus also has buildings and areas allocated for the student activities.
Academics
I am currently pursuing B.Tech in mechanical engineering at IITM. The professors here are well experienced. The curriculum is very flexible and gives the students a chance to pursue a minor or extend their degree to a dual degree.
Placements
According to the last years stats IITM has managed to place all its students from the btech course. Though the placement process was done online, the college has done remarkably well in getting the students placed.
Value-for-money
Many companies and campus programs provide scholarship to students based on the economic background and their performance in the academics. The institute also encourages students irrespective of their background to pursue their dreams in the area of their interest.
Campus Life
I have not experienced it yet but I certainly believe from what I have heard that it is campus life that makes the experience at IIT memorable for life. I hate to miss it but I am also very eager to go to the campus as soon as possible.
Anything Else
It is worth all the hard work and pain that takes to get here. It is not just the college but the students and people here that make the experience very special.

College has good infrastructure. We haven't yet been there but we are told that the SAC (Student Activity Centre) and OAT(Open Air Theatre) are some things to look forward to and the internet speed is really good.

College Infrastructure
IITM is known to have world-class facilities with state-of-the-art laboratories, well-equipped classrooms, all major sports facilities, a central library, cafeterias, and good hostel and mess facilities. The whole first semester was insufficient for me to explore all the places on campus. Initially, hostel facilities may not match the expectations, but soon, the hostel would become my second home. I was scared about mess food, but it is good in terms of taste and as well as hygiene.
Academics
Honestly, classroom study is not that interesting except for a few prof's classes, but the environment and culture outside the class and friends will teach you a lot. The research and entrepreneurship environment is the best among all the institutes in the country. The curriculum is always up to date and aligned with the industry requirements.
Placements
IITM is always a favorite destination for recruitment for many top firms (e.g., Google, Amazon, Netflix, IBM, and many more). The placement percentage for 2019-20 was 64% across all streams, with the highest salary offered, Rs. 88.82 lakhs per annum in the Computer-Science branch. The median salary offered to UG was 13.06 lakhs per annum. Institute extends all support to help you out in the placement procedure.
Value-for-money
Although the fees for IITs have been increased, the government and institute ensure to help financially weak students in all possible ways. There are many schemes by the government and various merit-based scholarships provided by the institute to help these students. Apart from this, from my experience, the quality education and exposure I am getting, have no comparison with the invested money.
Campus Life
There are a lot of activities to do if someone is willing. There are many clubs in the institute that engage you in different activities all the time. I have never seen an event like "Saarang" in my life before. Apart from academic pressure, campus life is enriching and you will make a lot of friends and lifetime memories.

Iit name itself have brand. Iit madras have very good infrastructure with proper lab with equipments and classroom with white board and libraries with all necessary books and sport ground and i have not opted for the hostel but i have asked to my friends according to him All hostel at IIT Madras has almost all Indore games along with some outdore games. Every wing in a hostel has a washing machine and we do have a common washing room. It's 24*7 free Internet + electricity+ water.
Academics
I am an student of ms mechanical engineering and the courses are little bit updated with new theory and practical but student are not well prepared for the job interview and practical are not focused teacher more over focused on theoretical part and webinar are conducted. And faculty are all phd with greatest knowledge and They are world known in there specification. They have plenty of research paper in top conferences.They generally involved in lot of government and private sectors projects.
Placements
engineering has almost 100% placements with average package of 12lpa. More then 250 companies register every year and hear intership is 100% You can take up a project in your department or get into a company.I didn't apply for internship. Generally stipend offered is around 25k to 70k per month.
Value-for-money
Yearly fee is ok but if you are having any financial problems than IIT comes under A grade college, so lots of banks(including SBI, Canera etc) offer loan with 9% of annual tax. Also MHRD used to pay scholarship of 12.4k to masters and 26k to Direct PhD students.
Campus Life
Campus Life is amazing here. You have a your own beach which you can go anytime you want (except during night time when there are high tides). But, never go for swimming in the water as chances of drowning is very high in those waters. We have amazing seniors to help, two fests, one ENGINEER (technical fest), and the other INCIDENT (cultural fest). INCIDENT is the best fest overall as it is the second largest fest in whole of South India after IIT Bombay's MOOD INDIGO.
Anything Else
Overall i was a great experience .

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
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.
