Institute surveys and planning of sessions based on the interests of institute students. Specific coverage for selected individual projects was arranged for the first time. But recently CFI has been running short on alumni funds which prevent it from completely funding TAs and making large infrastructure purchases.
This should be sorted out once the plan is implemented. Ongoing Initially, a plan to construct a new floor inside CFI to increase workspace was proposed. Alumni had even offered to fund the project up to Rs 80 lakhs. However, due to difficulties such as improper ventilation, aesthetics and others it was decided to get extra space in the workshop instead.
This space would be utilized as an air-conditioned presentation room. These infrastructure changes were planned in coordination with the Dean Students and Prof. DoSt and Engineering Unit had approved it in the first week of May but construction is yet to commence. IIT Madras participated in 7 events and won medals in 4.

Academic rankings[ edit ] IITs are generally ranked above other engineering colleges in India for Engineering. Major concerns include allegations that they encourage brain drain and that their stringent entrance examinations encourage coaching colleges and skew the socio-economic profile of the student body.
This trend has been reversed somewhat dubbed the reverse brain drain as hundreds of IIT graduates, who have pursued further studies in the US, started returning to India in the s.
Until liberalisation started in the early s, India experienced large scale emigration of IITians to developed countries, especially to the United States. Others support the emigration of graduates, arguing that the capital sent home by the IITians has been a major source of the expansion of foreign exchange reserves for India, which, until the s, had a substantial trade deficit. Government initiatives are encouraging IIT students into entrepreneurship programs and are increasing foreign investment.
Emerging scientific and manufacturing industries, and outsourcing of technical jobs from North America and Western Europe have created opportunities for aspiring graduates in India.
Entrance competition[ edit ] The highly competitive examination in the form of IIT-JEE has led to establishment of a large number of coaching institutes throughout the country that provide intensive, and specific preparation for the IIT-JEE for substantial fees. It is argued that this favours students from specific regions and richer backgrounds. Some coaching institutes say that they have individually coached nearly successful candidates year after year.
In a January lecture at the Indian Institute of Sciencethe Nobel laureate in Chemistry, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan revealed that he failed to get a seat at any of the Indian engineering and medical colleges.
