Ques. Which is better for M.Tech - civil engineering, IISc Bangalore or IIT Madras?
● Top Answer By Sanjukta Dasgupta on 29 Jul 21
Ans.Both the institutes are good as per their own. But if you are interested academically, IISc Bangalore is considered to be the best option.
The kind of research exposure and the freedom and opportunities that are provided by the institute cannot be compared with any other institute.
Almost all the institutes have some type of particular labs that are considered to be the best in the country so it is important for you to look into your interest areas as to who are the people you want to work with in the future and then make a comprehensive decision.

Ques. How would be PhD interview at IIT Madras for material science?
● Top Answer By Mannat Khan on 23 Jul 21
Ans.One of my friends recently appeared for the interview session and at IIT Madras for Metallurgical Engineering and here is what he has to say about his experience.
They began by questioning him about his M.Tech project work. It would be best if you research the faculty profiles and their major field of work.
Following that, they asked him a few of the basic questions concentrated on various phase diagrams, such as the lever rule, isomorphous phase diagrams. They have however asked most students questions from their field of interest.
While you are stating your area of research, you should be extremely particular. For instance, it might not be clear if you go on to mention “Mechanical Behavior of Materials”, but if you instead mention “Mechanical Behavior of Metals” it will help panelists ask you relevant questions from your domain.
If you can, then you should bring your M.Tech thesis, and copies of your published paper, if you have any, it will help create a good impression.
The evaluation of your selection usually depends upon your academic performance, written test scores, and your interview session.Read more

Ques. How is Data science diploma from IIT Madras after being graduate in Mathematics? What about the placements from IIT Madras online course?
● Top Answer By Sharmila Bose on 23 Jul 21
Ans.According to my friend's personal experience, doing a Data Science diploma from IIT Madras after graduating in Mathematics is an edge. You will be studying basic concepts initially but later on, your knowledge of Advanced Mathematics will help you to understand the topics.

I want to become a civil officer. So i choose civil engineering. We are 120 students in civil department and almost 20 faculty. All faculty members have B. Tech +M.Tech+ PhD degree. Many of faculty pass out form IIT Madras itself. We have 3 main exams. Quiz 1 , Quiz 2 and end sem exam. Paper have Normal and difficult both types questions.
I chose this course because it was the best-ranked branch in the best college in India. My batch strength is 73 and there are 5 subjects per semester, so there are 5 faculties for 73 students. So, the Ratio is 5:73. Some faculties are researchers in their fields, some are themselves IITM qualified. Their teaching methodology is quite professional. They try to teach students to their level of research, if they are discussing a topic, they will cover it as far as they know about that. The end sem exams were on time and offline. It was quite average and passing it was not tough as I had already read all the topics taught in class.
The course I chose was Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering. The reason was that it had an interesting curriculum. The faculty ratio in the department was around 1:3. Most of the faculty were from a very in depth research background.
INR 12 Lacs is the total fee IIT Madras charges from the Students of EMBA programme.

It was a great experience to participate in the academic conferences and Competitions also
The per semester fee of nearly INR 12,600 takes the total programme fee to INR 1.32 Lacs which is very good if referring to the quality of IIT Madras and also the 5-year time stint.

In a month there occurs atleast one exam and there are two main exams in a semester ( Mid sem and End sem).

They have also been part of various consulting project. There are seven term exams and 4 semester. The final marks are given by taking into consideration of all the other activities such as presentations, quizzes and all the assignments.
