The Heritage Centre collects and exhibits items of heritage value to IIT Madras. Most items in the collections have been digitised. The digitised items are periodically uploaded to this site.


To browse through the photographic collections is to travel through time in the IIT Madras campus. There are thousands of photographs in this collection, from the earliest days of the Institute.



This growing collection allows you to view events organised by the Heritage Centre, glimpses of animals of the IIT campus and micro-documentaries.



Students, alumni and members of the faculty and staff of IIT Madras have brought out various publications over the years, including the inimitable Campastimes.



You can view several artefacts such as the foundation stone of IIT Madras, slide rules, a replica of the Inter-IIT Trophy and a German-made turbine.
