About IIT Madras


Getting into the Indian Institute of Technology Madras is every students dream. Being one of India's most prestigious universities, it has been officially recognised as an Institute of National Importance by the Government of India. Established by the Government of India through an Act of Parliament, the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in Chennai, Tamil Nadu was the third institute to have been created in such a manner. The institute was established in the year 1959 with considerable technical and financial assistance from the former government of West Germany. It was inaugurated in the year 1959 by Prof Humayun Kabir, the then Union Minister for Scientific Research and Cultural Affairs.

With over 550 faculty members, 8,000 students and 1,250 administrative and supporting staff the technical institute has been growing ever since it obtained its charter from the Indian Parliament back in 1961. This residential institute spans over a humungous area of 2.5 km² campus which was previously a part of the adjoining Guindy National Park. What is interesting is that much of the campus is part of the same protected forest. Guindy National Park is home to large numbers of chital (spotted deer), black buck, monkeys, and other rare wildlife.
The Heritage Centre is an important part of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras campus. I was formally inaugurated by Dr Arcot Ramachandran, former Director IIT Madras in 3 March 2006. Located on the ground floor of the administration building, the actual idea of a Heritage Centre was brought to the forefront only in the year 2000. It took enormous initiative and efforts on the part of the Professor-in-charge Dr Ajit Kumar Kolar and his team to make this wonderful project a reality. The Heritage Centre functions as a repository of material of great heritage value and historical significance of various facets of the Institute. The exhibits there include photographs, documents, publications, paintings, portraits, products developed and other articles of importance.

Indian Institute of Technology Madras, is one among the foremost institutes of national importance in higher technological education, basic and applied research. The Institute was formally inaugurated in 1959 by Prof. Humayun Kabir, Union Minister for Scientific Research and Cultural Affairs. IIT Madras is a residential institute with nearly 460 faculty, 4500 students and 1250 administrative & supporting staff and is a self-contained campus located in a beautiful wooded land of about 250 hectares. The Institute has fifteen academic departments and a few advanced research centres in various disciplines of engineering and pure sciences, with nearly 100 laboratories organised in a unique pattern of functioning. A faculty of international repute, a brilliant student community, excellent technical & supporting staff and an effective administration have all contributed to the pre-eminent status of IIT Madras. The campus is located in the city of Chennai, previously known as Madras. Chennai is the state capital of Tamilnadu, a southern state in India.
