Are there any online courses provided by IITM to other university students for a short period of time with a certification of completion?

Yes! Here are a few options:

Online Undergraduate Programs

IIT Madras currently offers different online courses for BS/BSc/Diploma in Data science, Programming and Electronic Systems. You can find all the necessary details for these programs by visiting the IITM website here.

You can also explore the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL). It is an initiative spearheaded by the IITs and IISc which includes a catalogue of over 2400 courses taught by professors from these institutes. The best part? Access to all these course lecture videos and assignments is completely free—you only need to pay Rs 1000 if you wish to appear for an in-person course exam to be officially certified. 

Most professors at IITM offer NPTEL courses, several of which are  recorded in classrooms with IITM students who are enrolled in the in-person, IITM equivalent of the course. You can visit the website here or here to find out more about this.
