The Madras Institute of Technology at Chrompet constitutes the second campus of the University which extends over 20 hectares. Both the campuses have a variety of buildings serving the various needs of the University community.

A third campus extending over 80 hectares is located at Taramani near the Instronic campus, Adyar. The Bioprocess Laboratory donated by SPIC is located at present in this campus and a few more centers of advanced studies, like National Institute of Fashion Technology ( NIFT ), Sugar Research Institute, Mechatronics Institute, Entreprenuership Development Park, and Convention Centre will also be housed there in future.

Since December 2001,it has become a large, highly renowned Affiliated University, having brought into its fold about 426 Self – financing Engineering Colleges six Government Colleges and three Government – aided Engineering colleges located in various parts of Tamilnadu State.
