IIT Madras now has a process by which applicants can apply around the year. To do this apply through the admission site. These applications are forwarded to the departments, and are scrutinized there.

The EE Department has the policy that we will guarantee two rounds of test and interview, one during May and the other during November. The department considers applications during other times as well. However, unless a sufficient number of applications are received, we reserve the right not to hold tests and interviews except on the two rounds mentioned above.

Every month, the status of scrutiny of applications is indicated:

For May, June and July  2017, few applications were received and the department has decided not to hold test and interviews.
