Indian Institute of Technology Madras, is one among the foremost institutes of national importance in higher technological education, basic and applied research. In 1956, the German Government offered technical assistance for establishing an institute of higher education in engineering in India.

IIT Madras is a residential institute with nearly 540 faculty, 8400 students and 700 administrative & supporting staff and is a self-contained campus located in a beautiful wooded land of about 250 hectares.
