Questions like, “Is it true that IIT Madras is a technology hub for electric vehicles”, “What activities enabled IIT Madras to get the NIRF top spot for 4 years in a row?”, “Is Chennai safe for women? “, and few more about dual degree, scholarships, hostel services and messy food, and more have already been answered by IIT Madras passers.
All questions will be answered within 48 hours by a team of alumni and student volunteers. Those who ask questions will receive a response via email and/or WhatsApp, and the new question will be visible on the site for the benefit of others.
