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.
