IIT-M first offered the four-year programme in 2021 in an effort to make high-quality education accessible to everyone.

The students were admitted as part of IIT-“Anaivarukkum M’s IITM” project. More than 190 children from more than 50 government and corporation schools in Chennai were chosen and given help as part of this initiative.
However, 68 candidates were selected to write the pan-India qualifier exam for admission to the BS course after a panel of subject experts completed 14-week in-person training sessions for those students at the institute. Furthermore, the Tamil Nadu government would also provide full financial aid to the students who passed the admission exam for the Tamil Nadu Adi Dravidar Housing Development Corporation.
