Last updated on September 8th, 2020 at 02:01 pm

IIT Madras is the one of the most prestigious engineering colleges of India. IIT Madras offers a number of courses in Engineering & Science. The B.Tech programmes offered at IIT Madras are highly sought after in the country. IIT Madras Cut Off goes decently high for admissions to these B.Tech courses.

  • The Institute also offers B.Sc courses in Physics and Biological Sciences, as well as, B.Tech + M.Tech (Integrated Degree) course with 18 specializations.
  • IIT Madras has a total of 838 seats for B.Tech. These seats are further divided on the basis of Gender and Category. IIT Madras Cut Off is released separately for each.
  • Allocation of Seats for all the courses and integrated programs will be conducted through JoSAA Counselling which also releases the IIT Madras Opening and Closing Ranks.
  • All candidates will be allotted seats in the relevant programs by JoSAA Counselling through 7 rounds. IIT Madras Cut Off changes in each counselling round conducted for General, SC, ST, OBC, EWS, and PwD candidates.
