The faculty is highly qualified with some of them being renowned researchers in the world. The college needs improvement in course curriculum and infrastructure facilities. There are not much activities for giving practical knowledge about what is being taught in class. Students take a lot of initiatives to participate in the department festivals or conducting sessions, club meetings, etc. Placements are decent and the ROI is good.

According to me, it’s really one of the best institutes in India. The campus is awesome full of trees, deer and monkeys. Teachers are highly qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable. I would say good placement. At least 70 to 80 percentage of students gets good companies and salary. Sports facilities are also very good. Having badminton, tennis, squash, volleyball, cricket, football, table tennis etc. You really will enjoy life at IIT Madras.
