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 year from July 2023 onwards.
