Welcome the aspirants, Professor V Kamakoti, director, IIT Madras, said, “From 2000 to 2009, as a faculty member, I used to participate in ‘counselling’ during which JEE students would come to IIT Madras to talk to faculty members. We would answer questions about academics, placements, safety, sports, and food, among other topics.”
“Talking to us would calm the anxieties of students and parents. This in-person counselling was stopped in 2010 when the process turned online. I am so thrilled that students this year will get that opportunity to come to campus, get their doubts cleared, and then fill in their choices in online counselling”, Professor V Kamakoti added.
The Demo Day is an integral component of the AskIITM initiative, which is organized and managed by alumni and students. This platform allows aspiring students to seek information and clarification regarding various aspects such as courses, faculty, campus life, placements, and more. On the AskIITM website, individuals can submit their questions, and a dedicated team of alumni and student volunteers will provide answers and insights.
