The Fifth Estate, or T5E, is IIT-M’s student media body.An online blog that started in 2009, T5E has grown in leaps and bounds over the years. Over the past couple of years, T5E has consistently been coming out with a plethora of articles, news pieces, op-eds and photo series featuring various topics and issues for its reader base spanning students, faculty, alumni, the press and the general public. Over the last one year alone, we reached nearly 1 lakh views on our articles and gathered 4K+ new readers. As of today, T5E has become established platform to actively raise concern, debate or comment on anything related to the life at IIT-M.

T5E has thrived due to the efforts of a highly enthusiastic and committed team. We are looking for new editors and correspondents who will fill our ranks for the year 2016-17. Additionally, this year we are instituting a media team for the first time and will be recruiting Design, Photography and Videography Heads. We will also be recruiting WebOps coords.
