M.tech Admission Guidelines

M.tech(2008) Admission Guidelines

Selection Criteria: The selection is, generally based on GATE rank /score. However, some IITs, NITs and other university colleges may conduct a written test / Interview for selection into M.Tech. In such a case, the GATE score is given 70% weightage and remaining 30% weightage is for the written test / Interview. The exact procedure will be known by referring to the information brochure issued by the colleges for admission into M.Tech. The selection criteria may vary from year to year and from college to college.

* In IISc Bangalore, IIT Madras, Kharagpur, Roorkee, the selection is purely based on GATE score.

* In other colleges apart from GATE score, a written test or interview is being conducted

for selection into M.Tech. If a student possess excellent rank in the GATE, then direct admission will also be given without any interview.

Stipend for M.Tech :

The stipend/Scholarship Rs.5,000/- is available for eligible candidates in the form of Teaching assistance ship or Research assistance ship etc. The teaching assistance ship may be preferred, if possible.

Non Stipend M.Tech:

Most of the IITs, NITs & other colleges have certain seats reserved in the Non-stipend category. Here, the UGC scholarship will not be given. All the expenses shall be borne by the students only. Those students who are economically sound and desperate to join IITs, can apply . Students, even with low GATE score can get good specializations.

MS Programme:

  • Offered by most of the IITs and IISc. The MS course is equivalent to M.Tech. It involves research work and takes about 21/2 to 3yrs to complete the course. Very few seats are available in the IITs. Admissions are given twice in a year (in June & Nov. months). Admissions are based on GATE score + Degree marks + interview. Candidates with reasonably good GATE score and good academic record (> 70% marks) have chances of getting admission in IITs. UGC scholarship will be given throughout the program. Students who can’t get MTech admission in IITs, generally try for MS Course in IITs

Special attention for SC/ST students :

We strongly suggest you to apply for premier institutes like IIT’s irrespective of your percentiles. Luck may favour you.

Special attention for Girls:

Certain universities have girls reservation, eg. Andhra Pradesh. Hence even at lower percentiles compared to boys, girls have fair chances.

Special note for Second Class students:

If you see the rules & regulations of various premier Institutes, 1st class in Engineering is the pre-requisite. If you apply online, your application will be rejected. Hence we suggest you to apply manually with a request letter stating your present strengths substantiating with GATE Score and your desire to do M.Tech in the respective IIT. Request them to give you a chance so that you can prove yourself. Most of the professors would like to encourage the students who are seriously interested, inspite of the above –ve point, if the GATE score is good and the student has a burning desire to join the desired specialization in the desired IIT. They may consider your application with sympathy and may give you a chance after a personnel Interview. some of our old students with second class in their graduation got admission on similar grounds. Be bold and be positive. Definitely, you can reach your goal.

Note:

1.The students are advised to select the first preference carefully, appropriate to their GATE score level as the students are called for interview based on their 1st preference opted, generally

2.Those who have got relatively low scores in the GATE are strongly advised to apply formore number of colleges (not less than 10) so that they can get admission in atleast one college in the desired specialization

3.The students shall be in-touch with the daily English newspapers ( The Hindu, The Indian Express, The Times of India etc.) and Employment News for the M.Tech notifications by various colleges.

4.All the above guidelines are only suggestive / advisory. The candidates are requested to go through the information brochure of each college and take decision appropriately. Depending upon their interest.

5.The students may also contact their seniors/friends studying in various colleges for their suggestions and latest information about the colleges

NOTE: The following guidelines for M.Tech admissions have been prepared by us considering the information given by previous students based on their score & Rank

In such a case, the GATE score is given 70% weightage and remaining 30% weightage is for the written test / Interview. The exact procedure will be known by referring to the information brochure issued by the colleges for admission into M.Tech. The selection criteria may vary from year to year and from college to college.

Suggestions:

1. To secure admission in II.Sc Bangalore, the rank shall be within top 40, generally.

2. If a student gets more than 98 percentile, there is a definite chance of getting

admission in IITs. The students can put their dream specialization as the first choice

in the order of preferences.

3. If it is between 94 and 98 percentile, the students can try for those IITs where there is

interview for selection. It is advisable not to opt Structures as the first preference. If the

student is from a reputed college or if he/she has good academic record then the student

can opt structures as the first choice.. The students are also advised to apply for NITs

and MS programmes in IITs.

4. If it is between 89 and 94 percentile, the students can try in IITs like Roorkee, Guwhati

etc. but the first choice should be opted very carefully. It is advisable to opt

specializations like Water resources, Earthquake engineering, Architecture, Computer

aided design, etc., as the first choice. They have to apply the NITs and MS programme in

IITs, and other reputed university colleges.

5. If it is below 89 percentile, they are advised to apply NITs, university colleges and private

colleges depending upon the merit level..

NOTE:

* The students are advised to select the first preference carefully, appropriate to their GATE score level as the students are called for interview based on their 1st preference opted. For example, if a 90percentile candidate applies for Structures specialization as the first option in IITs, then there is a danger that the candidate may not be called for interview. In every specilisation, only some number of candidates will be called for interview based on the merit order.

* AMIE candidates can get admissions based on their GATE Score in IIT, Madras, Kharagpur & Roorkee. Whereas in other IITs they require to possess some professional experience and other qualifications.

NITIE (Bombay):

It offers 2 years PG Diploma in Industrial Engineering. It is a management course. It has good campus placements. All the students who have more than 85 percentile are eligible to apply.

IISC, Banglore:

Here the M.Tech specializations available for Civil students are Aerospace, Satellite Technology, Structures, Geotechnical, Water Resource Engg. The admission for M.Tech is normally based on GATE score. The top rankers generally opt Aerospace Engg. or Structural Engg. or Satellite Technology depending upon their choice. For these three specializations, the cut-off rank is about 15.

After the above three specializations, the other courses preferred are Geotechnical Engg. & Water Resource Engg. in the order. Generally ranks upto 40 can fetch these specilisations..

For MS course in IISc, the students shall appear for a separate written test (on the Civil Engg. Syllabus) followed by an interview. The number of seats for MS is quite less compared to M.Tech.

IITs Bombay, Kanpur, Delhi & Gowhati:

Admission for M.Tech is based on GATE score and the interview conducted by the IIT. For Structures in IIT, Bombay ,there will be a written test and an interview. For other specializations, only interview is conducted. The interview questions are concentrated mainly on the 1st preference opted for. However, questions from Mathematics etc can also be asked.

If a student possess excellent rank in the GATE, then direct admission will also be given without any interview.

IIT Madras:

Selection is based on GATE score and the interview. The interview panel generally consists of 4 to 5 professors from different specializations. They ask questions from all specializations irrespective of the 1st preference opted . Sometimes, questions are asked only on the first choice.

Other University Colleges:

SVU, Tirupathi; JNTU, Ananthapur; JNTU Kakinada; OU, Hyderabad; AU, Vizag, Annamalai University, Visweswara Institute, Banglore, Mysore University, Gulberga University, etc.., In these Colleges admissions are given based on GATE score. All the low score students can apply these colleges.

Private Colleges:

CBIT, Hyderabad – Structures Siddartha, Vijayawada – Structures etc….

These colleges are now offering M.Tech programs. But stipend will be given only to some students. The students with relatively very low GATE scores can apply to these colleges.

Production Engineering (PI)

There is no reservation for PI candidates in IIT’s, they are treating PI candidates along with mechanical only i.e. wherever PI candidates are eligible, they are seeing the percentile/score of mechanical and PI candidates and whoever got high percentile/score for them they are giving seat. But the rank is immaterial.

The same thing is happening with some of the other colleges also. But in some colleges like PSG Coimbuttor, NIFFT Ranchi etc there is reservation for PI.

IIT’s : MADRAS & KHARAGPUR are offering direct admissions based on GATE score ( normally they ask you to give 8 to 10 preferences of specialisations.)

KANPUR, MUMBAI, ROORKEE, GAUHATI & IISc BANGALORE are giving admissions for some specialisation based on the GATE score directly and some specialisations based on GATE Score + TEST + INTERVIEW. So candidates are advised to opt for first preference carefully, appropriate to their GATE score ( last year admissions GATE SCORE and specialisations will be given in the brochure or website).

DELHI is giving admissions based on GATE Score + INTERVIEW. In general candidate are called for interview by considering their first preference so candidate are advised to opt for first preference carefully, appropriate to their GATE score .

FOR THE IIT’S AND IISc THE CANDIDATES HAVE TO APPLY IN THE FOLLOWING WAY: All candidates with 99 percentile and above can apply for M.Tech in manufacturing as first priorities.
