In 1949, Shri.C.Rajam, gave the newly independent India-Madras
Institute of Technology, so that MIT could establish the strong
technical base it needed to take its place in the world. It was the rare
genius and daring of its founder that made MIT offer courses like
Aeronautical Engineering, Automobile Engineering, Electronics
Engineering and Instrument Technology for the first time in our
country. Now it also provides technical education in other engineering
fields such as Rubber and Plastics Technology, Production
Technology, Computer Technology and Information Technology.
It was merged with Anna University in the year 1978. MIT has produced great scientist and former President of India, Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam, and former Chairman of ISRO Dr. K.Sivan, and many more. The broad-based education, coupled with practiceoriented training in their specialty, has enabled the students of MIT to handle with skill and success a wide variety of technical problems. MIT Campus is Celebrating its 75th Platinum Jubilee year from July 2023 onwards.
