IIT-Madras MTech Information

Posted: March 29, 2012 in Advice For Gate Preparation

Hi all,
All of you who wants  to know about M.tech 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  http://mtechadm.iitm.ac.in/appstatus.php  .

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 : http://mtechadm.iitm.ac.in/appstatus.php   & 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.

  2. Mantosh says:

    I have rank: 1207(CSE), cate: OBC, gate score: 637.. Do I have chance of getting into IITM.
    And although I have already applied to IITM and they have received my application but they are asking me to post New OBC-NC certificate that I might get on 3rd April. before 5th May it will be delivered to institute. Is it fine. Or I have friends there, They can directly hand over that to the institute. What should I do? Please Help.

  3. Mantosh says:

    Sorry for posting again… I can give that new OBC-Certificate to them before 5 April. What should I do. Speed post them or hand over the certificate to them personally. Will they accept that personally? Thanks in advance

  4. Tushar says:

    I m planning to give GATE’13. But I don’t have 1st class in BE. I heard some IIT’s ( IIT k , M, kgp and IISc Banglore) doesn’t require 1st class. Is it true ?
    Will I be able to grab any job though I don’t have good academic record ( no 1st class in BE ) ?

    • ADMIN says:

      For IIsc,IITk,kgp,M u need 1st class in BE . u can try for job,it’s ur hand.

      • Tushar says:

        IIsc clearly mention atleast 2nd class. And all remaining 3 IIt’s doesn’t not mention anything regarding class. So I was just confirming through u. And abt job…. I was asking If I m in IIt then, will I be able to get a job though I don’t have good academic record ?

      • ADMIN says:

        if u are in IIT u will sit for placements so no problem 🙂 .
        can u give the link where IISc mention it ?
        In case of IIT Kgp i found it from here http://gate.iitkgp.ac.in/mtech/
        check eligibility section.

  5. Tushar says:

    for IIt K : http://www.iitk.ac.in/doaa/admissions.html

    for IIT M : http://www.iitm.ac.in/downloads/opening/MTech2012AdvtRegularEnglishmarch132012.pdf



    IISc admission has closed , so can’t give link.

    And abt IIT Kgp… M-Tech/MCP joint program with Phd is same as only M-Tech ?

    I was thinking it is different ,( bcoz I think uptil last year there was separate M-Tech (2 years) course. so didn’t read whole article. And by past experience assumed , there is no requirement of 1st class. But I think it is same.

    It is really shocking for me.Chances r really becoming less. Bcoz may be next year also they will continue with this format. But surprised , this year IIT K didn’t mention 1st class. Hope next year will be same.

    Plz, correct my knowledge wherever I m wrong bcoz on this criteria my next attempt , depends.

  11. Alisha Eades says:

    Thanks, I have recently been searching for details about this subject for ages and yours is the best I’ve discovered so far.

  12. Abishek says:

    Can you please post the cut off for PD candidates for MTech CSE in IITM (and also for other IIT’s if you can). Is there a suitability test for all PD candidates who apply to IITM Mtech CSE?

    • ADMIN says:

      u have to confirm it by going through the Academic Section of IITM,call them.

      • Abishek says:

        Thanks I’ll do that,
        I had got a mail from IITM when they received by application stating that since I have applied as a PD candidate I ‘might’ have an suitability test and medical examination ‘if required’. But I did not receive any other notifications there after, need to know did any other PD candidate got call for any such suitability test.

      • ADMIN says:

        call them, ask this question directly,say them what to do next. Academic Section is the best place to guide you.

  13. Abishek says:

    Thanks Admin 🙂

    Im a GEN student with AIR 226 and score 648
    What are my chances in IIT Madras ??
    Is there are chances, in which list can i expect ? Like first,second or third??

    • ADMIN says:

      For IITM no chances in 1st,2nd list, not sure about 3rd list as it depends on # of candidates apply there. May try spot admission,contact department for this. You can get other IIT interview calls.

  21. Tobio says:

    Hi Admin,

    Considering Iam a PD candidate and I belong to SC category, Some colleges have only single column to mention the category i.e both SC and PD are in the same quota column. So should I select SC or PD ? selecting which shall give me better chance at the Admissions ?

    Thanks in advance

  22. Santhosh says:


    i am short listed for interview in IITB and IIT-KGP.
    Suggestions please ??

    Thanks in advance

    • ADMIN says:

      In case of IIT-KGP they may ask u more about Discrete mathematics+logic+Data Structure based questions, also clear basic programming and digital design components.
      In IIT-B they ask basic question from ur area of Interest also check DMGT(discrete maths).This is my assumption, but may vary time to time.

  23. Santhosh says:

    IIT madras have announced the first offer list.
    How many days wil they tak to put up the second offer ??
    Last date to accept/reject the first offer is 14th . .

        Thank you Admin 🙂

  26. Tushar says:

    Hi sir,
    One of my friend is doing MS in some university of USA. He is saying he has only 2 days of college , No assignments writing ( which we had done all the time in BE ) , have project work , no huge theory to memorize …..in short no BE life. Is it same in IIT M or same as BE life i.e. Mon-Fri (9-5pm) loads of assignments writing , theoretical question in exam etc…..

    • ADMIN says:

      let me know in which college he is studying ? and u r answer is no not same as BE.No theoretical questions but based on practical qs and assignments .

    • Tobio says:

      If the purpose of a Master Degree is to just get a Degree, It is not worth spending two/three years on that. It is all about pushing your self to the next level, getting through all hurdles and coming out successful. Now thats the achievement. If you go to college, do nothing and get a degree at end it just means you are just at the same place where you started .

      • ADMIN says:

        really appreciate

      • Tushar says:


        Sorry dude but I think u misunderstood me. I m not against of Hard work. In BE I was just by hearting the theory but never got why I m studying and what is the use of it.

        e.g. In BE I had by hearted abt TCP and UDP that they have a difference like one is Unreliable and other is reliable. Unit test, viva, semester exam all the time I memorized it but never get what is the meaning of it exactly.
        But after BE , I learnt JAVA and did some programming in Socket. That time I got what reliable and unreliable means, how it works ? How packets r sent etc…
        In whole BE , I was writing loads of assignments ( copy-paste ) useless practicals, submissions, mugging up theory day and night. But Never get motivated to understand “Why” ? May be it is fault of my college standard.
        That’s why all the time , whoever I met I ask environment of IIT. Is it same as my BE life ? I m weak in mugging up theory and writing 4-5 pages theory question in exam.( that’s why never get 1st class ) If the same is to be happened in IIT also, then I will have to forget IIT or will have to overcome my weakness.
        Donkeys also work hard and does their job sincerely but does anybody appreciate them ?

  27. Tobio says:

    @ Tushar

    I think I did . sorry for that. Anyways what I said holds up true.

    IIT’s were created for research oriented education, so you need not worry about that.
    There are many projects available out there which you can take advantage of for practical knowledge.
    High level of exposure is guaranteed at IIT’s because of the college lifestyle and the diversity of students studying there. If you are really interested only in Research, then you should aim for IISC.

    At last, be it any place it is unto you to how you make use of the available resource for your advantage and for others (because IIT’s were basically created to produce high quality engineers for India !! ). All the best.

    • ADMIN says:

      Tushar , first of all what i know is in US universities the work pressure is more than here so i don’t believe what u r friend said you .
      Second thing is i support you what ever u said bcoz i know they are 100% true , poeple teaching there bcoz they don’t get any JOB anywhere else and they don’t know what they are doing……

      • ADMIN says:

        these univ are there only to fool people and make their money and nothing else even if u visit few NITs except (5 to 6 ) u will get same picture really worthless people are there for teaching and the environment for study is also bad. But thing is different in IITs here all faculty are well educated, good labs, library,good environment everything is good and yes GOOD CURRICULUM what is missing in those universities. So u don’t have to worry about it and yes an IIT can change your life ,it is true.
        I feel u r really interested in study ,i do suggest u a book http://i.stanford.edu/~ullman/focs.html

        read it completely if not atleast 1st chapter , u will know WHAT IS COMPUTER SCIENCE ALL ABOUT .

  28. ADMIN says:

    PS: Best of LUCK from my heart , i made this blog for people like you who can excel every hurdle in their life ,to make something bigger in life , if it helps i will happy 🙂

    • Tushar says:


      Sorry for late reply as I was out of town for few days.

      Thanks for giving the link. I will try my best to read whole book.

      I want some guidance also, that I will ask u soon.

      And abt area of interest ( hmmm…..don’t laugh but truly I also don’t know 😛 ) may be…. Networking. I will use link provided by u.

      Really thanks for the link(s) 🙂

  29. ADMIN says:

    Tushar u can do one thing what is your area of interest ?
    first check all IIT site ,visit prof web page , open http://academic.research.microsoft.com/
    and put their name in box u will get all info regarding his research , match it with u r area and try to join there . also check student web pages and their resume to know what kind of project they did , this will give u an idea.

    Hi ADMIN,
    I’m in final year of eng. M planning for GATE 2014. Bt i hav some doubts.

    1. I gt 64% in 10th, 43% in 12th, as i ws nt eligible for engg. i took admsn to diploma(cs) thn in scord 72%. Thn i gt admsn in degree dirct 2nd yr. Nw till 6th sem my agg. is 67%.
    So m i eligible for mtech frm IIT?

    2. I faced lots of problms in my collge placement drv of infy n lnt infotch as my 12th % were low. In IIT, if my CGPA is good thn also i have to face this poor past acadmcs problm?
    Bt i heard tht in IIT all companies considrs only mtech grades. Is ths true?

    Wht shuld i do? Plz guide me.
    I cn do well in GATE.

    • ADMIN says:

      Hello Satish, for placements what matters is your M tech grades in 2 years in different courses . So what you heard is true, but some company may ask you about 12 th grade ,and for gate study standard books only, read that”Gate Manual” post in this blog to get an idea.

    I’m a mech engg., graduate working in IT for five years. I’ve just tired of the services and To get into the ‘core’ CS organizations such as Google,EMC , I guess a PG in CS will help. Though I’m eligible for doing MTech in CS , just want to know had anyone did this before?(people from non electrical background did MTech in CS)

    Thanks in advance for the reply 🙂

    Hi. I want to apply to the applied mechanics and mechanical department in IIT madras for MS program. The problem is that I have not given GATE but have given GRE with a score of 311. On some iitm department websites like ee and aero they say they consider GRE scores, but nothing is said in relation to the qualifying exam on mech and applied mechanics website. In the brochure it is said that I can apply if i have given GATE or equivalent exam.
    So can I apply with the GRE score? Also is the score enough or should I get a higher score?

      Hi Yaman ,
      Sorry for late reply.. basically i have limited knowledge about electrical , though IIT M , IIT B, IIT D and IIT KGP is very good at it and IIT B and IIT D, IIT KGP placements are better with core companies…. check their student list with electrical department and mail them all, few people will surely respond ! Best of Luck .
