Indian Institute of Technology Madras (abbreviated IIT Madras) is a public technical and research university in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. As one of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), it is recognized as an institute of national importance.[4] It was founded in 1959 with technical and financial support from the former West German government and was the third IIT established by the Indian government.[5][6] IIT Madras has been rated the best engineering institute in India for five years in a row (2016-2020).[7][8] through the Department of Human Resources Development's National Institutional Ranking Framework.[9]

IIT Madras is a residential institute located on a 2.5 square kilometer campus that was formerly part of the adjacent Guindy National Park. The institute has nearly 600 faculties, 10,000 students, and 1,250 administrative and support staff.[10] Much of the campus, which has been growing since the Indian Parliament obtained its charter in 1961, is a protected forest carved out of Guindy National Park and home to large numbers of chital (spotted deer), black buck, crested macaques and other home is rare animal world. A natural lake deepened in 1988 and 2003 drains most of its rainwater.


In 1956 the West German government offered technical assistance in setting up a college for engineering in India. The first German-Indian agreement was signed in Bonn in 1959 to establish the Indian Technology Institute in Madras. The IIT Madras was founded with technical, academic and financial support from the West German government and at that time was the largest educational project funded by the West German government outside of their country. Over the years, this has led to several joint research efforts with universities and institutions in Germany.[11] Although official support from the federal government has ceased, some research efforts are still being made in connection with the DAAD program and the Humboldt fellowships.

The institute was inaugurated in 1959 by the then Union Minister for Scientific Research and Cultural Affairs. The first batch had a total of 120 students from all over India.[12] In 1961 the IITs were declared institutes of national importance. The first drafting ceremony took place on July 11, 1964. The then Indian President Dr. S. Radhakrishnan delivered the draft address and awarded the degrees to the first students.[13] The institute received its first female students in the BTech batch of 1966.[14] IIT Madras celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 2009 and its Diamond Jubilee in 2019.[15]

The main entrance to IIT Madras is on Sardar Patel Road, flanked by the Adyar and Velachery residential areas. The campus is located near the Raj Bhavan, the official seat of the governor of Tamil Nadu. Additional entrances are at Velachery (near the Anna Garden MTC bus stop, Velachery Main Road), Gandhi Road (known as Krishna Hostel Gate or Toll Gate, currently closed) and Taramani Gate (near Ascendas Tech Park).

The campus is located 10 km from Chennai Airport, 12 km from Chennai Central Railway Station and is well served by city buses. Kasturba Nagar is the closest station on the Chennai MRTS line.

Two parallel streets, Bonn Avenue and Delhi Avenue, cut through the Faculty's residential area before meeting at Gajendra Circle near the administrative block. Buses run regularly between the main gate, Gajendra Circle, the academic zone, and the hostel zone.

Place in context [edit]

Student dormitories [edit]

Most of the students at IIT Madras live in the dormitories, where extracurricular activities complement the academic routine. The campus has 18 hostels, four of which, Sharavati, Sarayu, Sabarmati and the recently (2017) built Tunga, are exclusively for women. In the old days every hostel had restaurants attached to it, but all of them were closed. The restaurants are located in three central halls, namely Nilgiri, Vindhya and Himalaya. The hostels can accommodate undergraduate and graduate students, although they tend to tell the two apart. At the time of admission, students are accommodated in dormitories, where they usually spend their entire stay at the institute.

The hostels are named for India's major rivers, and the campus buses were previously named for Bergen, leading to an epigram about IIT Madras that it is the only place where the mountains move and the rivers stay still. With the discontinuation of the naming of buses and the naming of the Vindhya and Himalaya exhibition halls, this epigram is no longer meaningful.

The halls of the IITM are:

Boys hostels
Alakananda Bhadra Brahmaputra Cauvery
Ganga Godavari Jamuna Krishna
Mahanadhi Mandakini Narmada Pampas
Saraswathi Sindhu Tamraparani Tapti
Girls' hostels
Sabarmati Sarayu Sharavathi Tunga

Sindhu, Pampa, Mahanadhi, and Tamiraparani are seven-story, while all other (older, classic) hostels are three- or four-story. These four hostels can accommodate more than 1,200 students.[16] The older hostels were all three-story until additional rooms were added in the form of an additional floor and rooms above the common room in the early 2000s. An additional new floor in the three-story dormitories, which usually accommodate the students, and a new block in place of the exhibition halls of these dormitories have been built to accommodate the increased student intake. These new blocks could be used as entrances for these hostels.

Facilities [edit]

IIT Madras provides residential accommodation for its students, faculty, administrative and support staff, and their families. The residential buildings employ private caterers. The stand-alone campus includes two schools (Vanavani and Kendriya Vidyalaya), three temples (Jalakanteshwara, Durga Peliamman and Ganapathi), three bank branches (SBI, ICICI, Canara Bank), a hospital, shopping centers, grocery stores and a gym, bedroom and timepass hall , Cricket, soccer, hockey and badminton stadiums. Internet is available in the academic zone as well as in the residential zone of the faculty and staff. In the past, the internet in the hostel zone was limited from 2:00 p.m. to midnight and 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., but increasing demand during the academic semester resulted in all-day internet service.[17]

IIT Madras has the fastest super computing facility among educational institutions in India. The IBM Virgo Super Cluster installed with 97 teraflops was also classified in the Top500 list from November 2012 as 364 among the top 500 in the world. Apart from that, the institution already has a supercomputer with 20 teraflops.[18]

Organization and administration [edit]

Leadership [edit]

Indian Technology Institute Madras is an autonomous legal organization that operates under the Institutes of Technology Act. The 16 IITs are administered centrally by the IIT Council, a top body established by the Indian government. The Minister of Human Resources and Development of the Government of India chairs the Council.[19] Each institute has a board of governors that is responsible for its administration and control.

The Senate is composed of all professors of the institute and decides on its academic policy. It controls and approves the curriculum, courses, exams and results. It appoints committees to review certain academic matters. The director of the institute acts as chairman of the senate. The director from 2001 to 2011 was MS Ananth,[20] who resigned at the end of July 2011.[21] From September 2011 Bhaskar Ramamurthi took over the management.[22]

Three subcommittees of the Senate - the Board of Academic Research, the Board of Academic Courses, and the Board of Students - help with academic administration and the work of the institute. The Finance Committee advises on financial policy issues, while the Building and Construction Committee advises on buildings and infrastructure. The Board of Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research provides industrial advice and the Library Advisory Committee oversees library matters.

Departments [edit]

Academics [edit]

IIT Madras offers undergraduate, postgraduate, and research degrees in 16 disciplines in engineering, science, humanities, and management. Around 360 faculties in the natural science and technical departments and centers of the institute deal with teaching, research and industrial consulting.

The institute has 16 academic departments and advanced research centers in the fields of engineering and natural sciences with nearly 100 laboratories. The academic calendar is organized around the semester. Each semester offers at least seventy days of classes in English. The students are continuously assessed throughout the semester. The assessment is carried out by the faculty, a consequence of the autonomous status granted to the institute. The research work is assessed on the basis of the review work by peer examiners from Germany and abroad. Ordinances regulating the academic study program are drawn up by the Senate, the institute's highest academic institution.

Entrance exams [edit]

For basic studies, admission to the BTech and dual degree program (BSc + MSc or BTech + MTech) takes place via the Joint Entrance Examination - Advanced (JEE-Advanced). IIT Madras conducted JEE Advanced in 2017. Admission to the five-year integrated Master of Arts (MA) program takes place via the entrance examination for the humanities and social sciences (HSEE), an IIT Madras-specific examination.[23]

For the postgraduate curriculum, admission to the MTech and MS programs is via the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE). The Joint Admission Test to MSc (JAM) is the entrance examination for the two-year MSc program and other post-BSc programs. MBA candidates are accepted through the Common Admission Test (CAT).[23]

Ranking lists [edit]

Internationally, IIT Madras was ranked 271 in the QS World University Ranking of 2020.[32] The same ranking reached 50th place in Asia in 2020[25] and 17 among the BRICS countries in 2019.[26] It was ranked by the 601-800 in the world Times Higher Education World University Rankings from 2020,[27] 125 in ASIA[28] and 63 among emerging market university rankings in 2020.[29]

IIT Madras also ranked first among the engineering schools in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) in 2020[31] and first overall.[30] In the Atal Ranking of Institutions for Innovation Achievement (ARIIA), Govt. of India in 2019.[33]

Evaluation system and student evaluation [edit]

Indian Institutes of Technology are under the control of the Indian government and therefore have strict rules on grade. Depending on the course, assessment is based on class attendance, attendance, quiz, exam, and / or work. The continuous assessment is carried out by the course instructor. The IIT Madras rating system[34] What is also used in other IITs is the cumulative grade point average, on a scale from 0 to 10, which is converted to letters:

Letter noteGrade pointsin words
S.10Excellent (top students / top performers)
A9Very good
C.7Satisfactory job
D.6Below average
E.5Poor (but passed)
W.0Lack of visitors (usually less than 85%)

CGPA is then calculated as the cumulative credit-weighted average of grade points: CGPA = (Σ Ci • GPi) / (Σ Ci) where: N is the number of courses for which Ci is credits for the i-th course. GPi are grade points for the course CGPA is the cumulative grade point average

The CGPA is not the same as the one used in the USA. In India, some credits may be awarded during undergraduate studies for in-curriculum and off-curriculum activities, while it is not allowed during the Masters program. Through agreements with numerous international organizations, IIT grades are accepted by many international organizations such as NTU, NUS and DAAD.

In addition, the attendance of the students is rated VG for very good (always present), G for good (not every lecture present) and P for bad (the student was less than 85% of the lectures present).

Academic Research Programs [edit]

The institute has departments and advanced research centers in the disciplines of engineering and natural sciences, as well as nearly 100 laboratories.[35]

Research programs relate to work by faculty members or specific research groups within departments that award an MS or PhD degree. The research is carried out by scientists who have been accepted into these departmental programs under the guidance of their faculty. Each department promotes its areas of interest to the academic community through manuals, brochures, and bulletins. Topics of interest can be theoretical or experimental. The IIT Madras has initiated 16 interdisciplinary research projects against identified priorities.

Partnership with other universities [edit]

The institute maintains academic friendship with educational institutions around the world through faculty exchange programs. The institute has signed memoranda of understanding (MOUs) with universities abroad, which lead to cooperation projects and contracts.[36]

Industry consulting and funded research [edit]

Through industrial consulting, faculty and staff take on tasks for the industry, which can include project design, tests and evaluations or training in new areas of industrial development. Industries and organizations such as the Indian Ordnance Factories,[37] Contact the IIT faculty to take on assignments directed through the Center for Industrial Advice and Sponsored Research (ICSR).

National organizations promote research programs by funding faculty projects. This research is time-bound and allows project participants to register for a degree. Project proposals are usually prepared by the IIT Faculty and forwarded to interested organizations based on the nature of their research and interest in funding such projects.

Funded projects are often a means for new resources within the departments and often enable their project staff to apply for degrees in the institute. All funded research activities at the institute are coordinated by the ICSR.

Park The IIT Madras Research Park,[38] The first of its kind, founded in India, serves to drive successful innovations in established companies and to provide start-ups with a nurturing ecosystem through incubation efforts and technical infrastructure. Following the success, 50 research parks were planned as part of the Start Up India initiative of the Indian central government. IIT Madras Research Park's corporate clients include Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Saint-Gobain, and Forbes Marshall. Ather Energy, Hyperverge and Gyandata are some of the startups that have been incubated in the research park. The research park is primarily the reason why a very large number of startups are incubated at IIT Madras.[39]

National Technology Enhanced Learning Program (NPTEL) [edit]

To improve the quality of higher education in India, IIT Madras has launched an initiative NPTEL (National Program for Technology Enhanced Learning)[40] in 2003.[41] As part of this initiative, all IITs would, in conjunction with IISc Bangalore, offer a range of video-based courses covering all areas of engineering.[42] This initiative has gained great popularity in India and the lectures are used by several engineering students from all over India. It is the largest online repository in the world of courses in engineering, elementary, and select humanities and social science subjects.

Student activities [edit]

Festivals [edit]

Shaastra [edit]

Shaastra is the annual technical festival of the IIT Madras. It usually takes place in the second week of January[43] and is the first ISO 9001: 2015 certified student organized festival in the world.[citation needed] It is known for its organization and activities. The forums include symposia, workshops, video conferences, lectures, demonstrations and technical exhibitions. Contest activities include design events, programming, simulations, quizzes, applied engineering, robotics, junkyard wars and devices.

Saarang [edit]

The Entrepreneurship Cell [edit]

The Entrepreneurship Cell, IITM, abbreviated as E-Cell IITM, is a student-run institution responsible for promoting and nurturing the spirit of entrepreneurship among both the faculty and the student community of IIT Madras. E-Cell was formerly known as “C-TIDES” and was renamed in 2015 along with a series of organizational changes to encourage greater student engagement.

E-Summit[44] is E-Cell's flagship and a three day event that usually takes place in the first week of April.[45] It includes a variety of events and competitions, such as the Startup Boot Camp, PitchFest, Intern Fair, a social campaign and workshops, lectures and panel discussions from some of India's most important entrepreneurs. Previous speakers included Ritesh Agarwal and Nandini Vaidyanathan.[46][47]

2017 was E-Summit's second installation. There were around 1000 people from almost 30 colleges in which over 100 startups were involved.

One of the most successful campaigns by E-Cell IIT Madras was carried out at the E-Summit 2019. The campaign, called Education 21 (E-21), focused on entrepreneurship skills and aimed to equip students with the skills necessary for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. The campaign has also been recognized by the Government of Tamil Nadu's Entrepreneurship Development and Innovation Institute (EDII) and is currently a member of the Tamil Nadu Ilam Innovators Challenge (TNIIC). [48]

Center for Innovation (CFI) [edit]

Center for Innovation, abbreviated as CFI, is a “Student Lab” founded in 2008 with the vision of “promoting informal learning and fostering innovation and inventions in technology” and ultimately making a positive contribution to industry and society at large . CFI gives students the platform they need to bring their ideas to life, a great workspace, extensive inventory, advice from faculty and senior students, and a passionate CFI team.

Over time, CFI has successfully evolved into a thought-provoking center and stimulating students to come up with new ideas about what really makes it the "center" for innovation. Currently, CFI consists of ten clubs and internationally recognized competition teams - Team Abhiyaan, Team Avishkar Hyperloop, Team Anveshak and Raftar Formula Racing.

CFI's annual flagship event, the “OPEN HOUSE”, shows the innovative projects of all CFI clubs, many of which have won international and national awards, as well as the work of the competition teams.[49]


The main objective of the Extra Mural Lectures series, launched in 1980 by a group of students with the support of the then Director of IIT Madras, the late Prof. PV Indiresan, is to make the IIT Madras community's ideas and experiences more meaningful Personalities from IIT Madras expose different backgrounds. EML provides a platform for insightful interactions between IIT Madras students and those who pioneered it. Over the years, the late former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam, the Nobel Prize winner The 14th Dalai Lama, the Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi, the chess grandmaster Vishwanathan Anand, the filmmaker SS Rajamouli and the honorable Governor Shri, among others. ESL Narasimhan, Honorable Minister of Railways Shri. Suresh Prabhu, co-founder of Infosys Shri. Kris Gopalakrishnan and Ambassador of Japan to India HE Mr. Kenji Hiramatsu was invited to IIT Madras for additional wall lectures to motivate the students and broaden their perspectives.

The Sustainability Network (S-Net) is an alumni student faculty initiative launched in May 2009 to raise awareness and highlight the need to preserve the unique niche of one of the best educational campuses in India. S-Net should work towards developing and delivering solutions for creating a self-sufficient campus (with a focus on energy / electricity, water and waste management) that could eventually be replicated through collaborations with other educational institutions across the country.[50]

The fifth booth[51] is the official media body of the IIT Madras and provides an insight into what is happening on campus and important news relating to the institute. The Open Air Theater hosts the weekly movie, a tradition on Saturday evenings, among other activities. It can accommodate over 7,000.

The National Service Scheme[52] (NSS) at IIT Madras was known for taking up socially relevant initiatives that were picked up as stand-alone projects to have an impact on society and students. The NSS wing at IITM has over 400 students each year, which adds to the cause of the program. Since its inception, NSS at IITM has reached many milestones in its history as a unique, student-led organization. Associated with several NGOs and social organizations inside and outside of Chennai. By crafting projects from braille magazines to technology interventions, from teaching children in urban slums to teaching video content, NSS (IITM) seeks to challenge mediocre thinking and reach into the dark to pull a hand into the light .

Hobby clubs include the speaking club, the astro club, drama, music and robotics.

Student organizations such as the Vivekananda Study Circle (VSC), the Islamic Study Circle, the IIT Christian Fellowship, Genesis and Reflections focus on spiritual discussions.

The campus developed a slang and attracted a published master's thesis at a German university.[53] A mix of English, Hindi, Telugu (Gult), Malayalam (Mallu), and Tamil (Tam), aspects of campus slang, have been adopted by a few other Chennai colleges.

In contrast to its sister institutions, not a single Indian language is used among its students at IIT Madras: Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Kannada, English and Hindi are used very often. As a result, all student activities such as debates, drama, short films, and others are conducted in English. This is even reflected in the colloquial language, which in contrast to IIT-M's northern colleagues, uses more English and other Indian regional languages ​​than Hindi.

IIT Madras Heritage Center

Entrance to the Heritage Center at IIT Madras

The Heritage Center was founded on March 3, 2006 by Dr. Arcot Ramachandran, the former director of IIT Madras, officially inaugurated. The center is located on the ground floor of the administration building. The actual idea of ​​a cultural heritage center was discussed in 2000 and thanks to the efforts of the responsible professor Dr. Ajit Kumar Kolar and his team became a reality. The center will serve as a repository for material of historical value and significance from various facets of the institute.

The exhibits include photographs, documents, publications, paintings, portraits, developed products, and other items. Information on key events, laboratory development, visits by important dignitaries, Indo-German cooperation activities, and academic achievements by faculties and students are also included. Aspects of the characteristics and development of the IITM campus, campus life and student activities are also taken into account, expanding the scope of the center to include non-academic activities in the future.

The activities of the Heritage Center will from now on be of a continuous nature. Therefore, the support and collaboration of all IITians (students, faculties and staff, past and present) is vital in order for the Center to achieve its goal of preserving history and the IITM culture for future generations of IITians. Due to the nature of the task, the role of the alumni is crucial in establishing and promoting the center. There is a link to his personal website


Several members of the Hindu Munnani were arrested in November 2014 for organizing a “spitting protest” outside the IIT Madras after the institute hosted the “Kiss of Love” campaign.[54] Members of the group gathered and began to spit on pictures of students kissing and hugging during the kiss of love campaign last week. They also abused the students.[55]
