Smart Campus

Today, the idea that “every company needs to become a software company” is considered almost a cliché. No matter your industry, you’re expected to be reimagining your workplace continuously. Block Chain based attendance system, Smart Walls, College Bus Tracking system, Augmented Reality museum are the few implementations done in ITM campus to get on a roll towards making ITM Chennai, a “Smart Campus”.

College Bus Tracking System

Every student has been in the situation, where their college bus is going to be, but they have little idea when. Providing real time update of the bus location, not only will students benefit from this, but college admin will also have to worry-less about hectic communications.

80% of the jobs in the next decade will require technology skills. – The Guardian
As you are the future rulers of the business world, ITM has bunched up state of the art Hardware to set up an IT lab by foreseeing the New wave in technology. ITM’s new wave IT lab is the culmination of Chairman’s Vision that every student should be enriched with rich technical skills to cope up with industry trend changes. This lab will harness students to learn and simulate BLOCK CHAIN, AUGUMENTED REALITY, STOCK EXHANGE TRADING, IOT etc.

We all love walking barefooted through old stone buildings. we love the feel of smooth cold stone under our feet as we explore through the old temples and historic structures. Every sculpted inch of such temple is exclusive of each other because, it goes by the famous quote “Walls tell stories”. Did you know sculptures, buildings, walls can tell stories? These are source of knowledge about our past.

In ITM, we have QR (we call them as modern sculptures) codes on walls. You have a story to tell? Just scan the code through your mobile, unfold your story and submit. And that will be there forever. Imagine this; after 10 years when a new student is walking through, exploring our campus and randomly scans a QR code to find one of your story, we think that’s called “exciting” or “eternal”.


ITM Chennai is proud to be recognized and ranked among one of the respected business schools in India.
