Hi all,
All of you who wants  to know about or M.S @ IIT Madras.  This is the post for you .

I think most of you are interested regarding M.Tech @ IIT Madras, Just fire your query , i will try to answer them.

By the way first list of M.Tech admission will be out soon… keep on checking site…
Detailed list wont be displayed, only students who have applied can check their status whether they are selected or not ( after the list is out ) here  .

Normally almost all students who apply for IITB,IITK, IISC ( i.e IITS who offer direct admission ) also apply for IITM, so in first list same names will be there & most of the students opt for IITB so GN cut of first list will be around rank 90( General category ).

Procedure for admission  is almost same as other IIT’s i.e you have to confirm admission till some stipulated date by sending DD of some amount. IITM will send mail regarding that once the list is out

I think first list will be out in 4 to 5 days most probably.

IITM is better for Artificial intelligence, Computer networks & Computer architecture.

Some of you might be thinking that is there any specialization in CSE M.Tech @ IITM. Let me clarify there is no specialization… here M.Tech will be in Computer science.

Seats are 69 in total , 54 for gate candidates… 15 seats are for sponsored candidates…

That medical certificate will act as your medical record. IITM provides medical facilities for free here while your stay  of 2 years, for this they need this certificate. After your admission they will keep this certificate with them.

For spot admission those candidates who received such mail have to re register here :   & have to send dully filled registration form ( hard copy ) till the stipulated date.

Now after this IITM will make new offers ( in case vacancies ) to these students  only around 2nd or 3rd weak of July.By this I think they only want to find students who are actually interested in next offer.

Again they will offer admission according to gate score only ( that again to students who have sent re registration form successfully ).
I am not sure on one point whether this next offer will be a personal counseling round or just like previous offers.

  • This is for the guys & girls who will be joining or have joined IITM CSE for M.Tech :

Please revise your data structure & algorithm very well. Because in first semester you will be having Advanced data structure & algorithm as a  compulsory subject including practical. These practical assignments will  be mostly on trees & graphs & that you have to do in C or C++ .  So it will be better if you brush up your linked list, tree & graph programming
at least. You have almost one month still.This will give you an  advantage in first semester.

In M.Tech you have to complete 10 subjects here. From this 4 subjects are core( i.e compulsory ) & for other six, you have so many options.  Now in first semester you have to take 4 compulsory subjects ( those are Math, Algorithm, Soft. engg, algorithm lab ). with this you can take 5th subject if you wish so. Normally students complete there 10 subjects as 4-4-2 ( i.e in three semester)  or as 5-4-1 or 5-5 ( rarely ).
For algorithms you should refer Introduction to Algorithms by Cormen .

In most of the subjects there will be  B.Tech students you have to share your classes . There are so many subjects like ADSA, NLP etc…

For Hostel allotment currently there are two candidates per room. This condition will be there for 2 months ( which was the case with us last year)

Thanks, i think it will help.

One year ago when i was searching for some news about IIT-KGP MS interview , i did not find  one in Internet . So what i decided to mail directly  Research Scholars  to know about it. I got their mail-id from CS department  site and mail few people. After few days i got a reply from only one kind person Mr.S . And in this post i want to describe the complete information about IIT-KGP MS/PhD interview process .

I have seen many people talking about it that to get MS in KGP you need a good Relation with KGP Professors, but believe me this is completely wrong What you have to do is to give a Test and Interview based on their requirements in projects  ,which generally posted here 

Here is the complete discussions:

Dear X,(me)

Good to hear of your interest in pursuing a higher degree. Which university did you pass out from and in which year?

Here are the rules for joining an MS/PhD program at IIT KGP:

1) MS – For joining MS, you have to first join as a project fellow/staff after clearing a written exam and interview. Once you are through, you will be eligible to appear for an MS interview. Once you clear the second test, you are eligible to enroll as an MS student. In case you fail to clear the second test, it will mean that you will continue to work as a project staff. However, you can retake the second test again next semester and so on. GATE scores are not mandatory for MS, however, having a good GATE score will obviously further your chances.

2) PhD – Students can enroll for the PhD program either as a project fellow or as an institute fellow. Institute fellows are admitted twice a year and the notices are published on the institute website. The rules for enrolling as a project fellow is similar to MS. I am not sure about the GATE requirements for PhD.

1.Q.  For joining as a project fellow/staff i have to sit for written test and interview. Now my question is what kind of preparation need to clear the test? what is test pattern and type of questions they ask in test?

Ans: The syllabus is attached along with this mail. It is very basic and not too tough. However, you cannot be sure and should try and revise as much as possible. Usually, questions from networking, database and compilers are not asked frequently. This will also depend on the type of project that you are applying for.

2.Q.  What kind of questions they can ask in interview ? It is research related programme so i have to choose my area of interest and my research guide in this interview.I have heard it ,is it true? can you please share your interview experience with me ?

Ans: No, the questions are from basic and theoretical CS. For MS, you are not usually allowed to choose a guide like in PhD. The project guide is usually your MS research guide as well.

3.Q. The most important question is  what are the area of research they can provide me ? as i have interest in DBMS, Automata  , Algorithm and Data Structure ,so can i choose my area of research as my own or they can provide it by them ?

Ans: Research work is usually not confined to any particular field, therefore, rigidly sticking to any subject is not always possible. For this you can talk to your prospective guide. The area of research will obviously depend on the project that you will be working on.

4. Q. My B.Tech % is 70.07 and i don’t publish any paper yet . Is it ok to get a call from them ?

Ans: You have to check the project requirements. Sometimes, the cutoff is set at 75 or 80 also. Sometimes, it is also 60.

5. Q. Please guide me how i can apply for project fellow ? in which month IITKGP organize it’s written test for project fellow?

Ans: Admission as a project fellow is all round the year, depending on the inflow of projects. You can keep an eye on the following link:

6. Q. Is there any stipend/fellowship they provide for this programme?

Ans: It is there, and the amount will be advertised before hand. The amount depends on the budget and the guide.
