  • Hostel fees per semester amounts to around INR18,150/- including mess charges also.
  • There are around 14 or 15 messes in campus, accessible to students, which include a food court, jain mess and a non-vegetarian mess. 
  • Students have the option of changing their mess every month and thus dining in the mess which best suits their preferences. They also have the option to change their mess in between, after some formalities.
  • The food is generally good, In my opinion I would give it a rating of 2.5 - 3 out of 5. 
  • Common courses are usually conducted in Lecture halls in Class room complex ( A/C classes ) and the branch related courses are conducted in department. Department related labs are also conducted in the department. Non A/C classes are also there, and classes with relatively lower strength are conducted there.
  • Wi-Fi is available in the Department Computer facility and students can access them.
  • Overall the infrastructure on campus is very good. I would give it a rating of around 4/5.
Placements & Internships :
  • Students usually have a compulsory internship as part of their course requirements  ( I'm talking about UG studies only, I have no knowledge of PG / PhD studies ), which requires them to undertake atleast 1 internship  for minimum 6 weeks duration ( generally during their 3rd year for B.Tech students or 4th year for Dual degree students ). Companies come to campus for recruitment ( both for interns as well as during placement time ), and a student can submit his/ her resume and apply for an intern/job offer at companies of his/ her choice, based upon the set conditons if any ( Like, minimum CGPA , or branch, etc etc ).

IT companies, Finance companies, Banks, Business consulting comapnies etc , As well as core companies appear for placements.

  • Some examples are : Schlumberger, Goldman Sachs, Wipro, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Honeywell, Mercedes Benz, Robert Bosch, Tata steel .. etc are some of the companies that recruit from IIT-Madras.
  • On an average ( based on last years statistics ) around 76% of students were placed, with an average salary of as much as INR 10,00,000 Per annum.
  • Generally Computer Science department sees the highest placement percentage and also high pay packages, usually closely followed by Electrical engineering branch. 
  • IIT-Madras maintains a huge and extensive alumni network, with almost all alumni remaining in touch with their alma-mater after graduation.
  • We also have an I&AR ( International and Alumni Relations ) team in place which maintains the vast alumni network. 
  • Often students have the opportunity to meet and interact with alumni, and get their advice
Fees and Scholarship :
  • The course fee in total amounts to around INR 55000/- to 56,000/- ( Approx ) per semester, equivalent to roughly INR 1.1 lakhs to INR 1.3 lakhs per year out of which  45000/- ( Per semester ) is the tution fees, and the remaining amount goes towards establishment charges.
  • Students from SC/ST/PwD category are exempted from payment of tution fees which leaves them with an amount of around INR 6700/- to 7000/- per semester to be paid.

Academics & Faculty :
  • Mostly classes are in the morning with afternoon slots occupied by labs for around 3 hours, or tutorial / assignment classes which run from anywhere between 1-2.5 hours. The course material is extensively covered over the duration of the semester with 1 tutorial test/class per week.
  • Exams are conducted once in a month ( Quiz-1, Quiz-2 and end semester) ( Each semester is for 4 months ). Also we have surprise tests ( which generally depends upon the professor taking the course ), which help us to be better prepared for exams. 
  • Over and above all these we get assignments ( usually given if tutorials are not regularly conducted) and end of semester projects which count towards our final evaluation. 
  • The professors are very learned and excel in their chosen field of teaching. Being friendly and approchable one can always approach them with doubts pertaining to the subject. Apart from clearing doubts they are mostly always open to students approaching them with novel and innovative ideas. 
  • We also have the option to work on a project under a professor or start a project on our own with the guidance/ assistance from a professor.
  • The overall experience so far, in my opinion has been very satisfactory.

1.0
Academics & Faculty :
  • Some of the things in this review might not still hold due to the change in curriculum and a few points might be inclined towards my own program of study.
  • Daily routine in any IIT is more or less the same. Class timings from morning 8 AM to afternoon or evening (depends on the program and year of student). Exams are really competitive but the fact that the grading is mostly relative, gives a sigh of relief. (Relative grading: Instead of how much you score, its how much you score relative to others in your batch). Assignments form a regular part of the semester and are given out at regular intervals. Each assignment carries a certain weightage for that course. Projects are an integral part ofthe curriculum. Dual Degree students have to compulsorily do a final year project with a professor, while in B.Tech one has a choice of either a final year project or an extra set of courses.
  • The quality of education and teaching is superb. The professors are highly qualified and experienced in their field of research and teaching. And they are always willing to help, regarding any academic and non-academic guidance.
  • I have experienced a very different and exciting lifestyle in here. The freedom to do anything of our interests assists us to extra curricular skills. And this can be experienced pretty well, just by a visit here.

  • Food is decent. A chargee of 110 INR is levied per day which is included in the hostel fee.
  • Infrastructure is top notch.
Placements & Internships :
  • I have previously worked as an intern in three companies. (Reliance Ind. Ltd., Clozerr and Frebbo) and am also pursuing a remote internship in IIM Lucknow. I haven't been paid any stipend so far.
  • Engineering, Finance,Marketing, Business Development and Analysts, Coding, Software and Web Designers and Developers. The average pay would be around INR 7 to 8 Lakhs per year.
  • Alumni Network is brilliant and well functioning.
Fees and Scholarship :
  • My course fee comes to approximately 1,05,000 INR (1.05 Lakh INR) per year.
  • While the SCs, STs and other low income groups are awarded scholarships, there aren't many options for scholarship apart from them. Also students with family incomes well above the stipulated amount still avail the scholarship thanks to fake certifcates of income produced by such students ffrom their respective native areas.
  • I am not very sure about the average number of students availing scholarship.
  • Loans can be availed from the State bank of India's branch in the institute. However, I feel an educational loan for an undergraduate course is just too cumbersome and a burden at a very early stage
Academics & Faculty :
  • The daily routine is well spaced and manageable. Classes generally start at 8 am and end latest by around 4.30 PM with free hours in between. Exams are scheduled almost once a month and assignments and projectss are informed well beforehand.
  • The Quality and method of teaching is top-notc. Most of the learning is by self-study once the concepts have been covered in the classes. The professors act as great facilitators of learning.
  •  I can dare say without the slightest of doubts that college life is great in IIT Madras and the atmosphere here is the best and most conducive for a jumpstart to our careers.
