July 2016 M.Tech. Admissions are Over
Candidates having First Class or 60% marks (55% for SC/ST) in Bachelor's Degree in any Engineering discipline with a valid GATE score in Aerospace Engineering (AE) / Mechanical Engineering (ME) / Electrical Engineering (EE) / Electronics and Communication Engineering (EC) / Instrumentation Engineering (IN) / Chemical Engineering (CH).
Candidates having two years of relevant work experience are exempted from requirement of GATE score, provided their candidature is sponsored by the employer. They are not eligible for award of Teaching (TA) / Research Assistantship (RA).
