(c) Bachelor’s degree holders in Architecture/Design (for M Des programme only)

(d) Master’s degree holders in Science disciplines including Physics with Electronics/ Instrumentation/Geology/ Computer Application/ Physical Sciences/ Mathematical Sciences as applicable to individual department offering M Tech programmes.

All the candidates should qualify in the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE 2014 or 2015) for ME / M Tech, GATE or in the Common Entrance Examination for Design (CEED 2014 or 2015) for M Des, and GATE 2014/2015 or CAT 2014/GMAT 2014 for M.Mgt, and possess the valid score card(s) as on 1st August 2015.

Additional notes

(a) The minimum requirement for admission to course programmes-ME/M Tech/M Des is a SECOND CLASS and for M.Mgt a FIRST CLASS (as declared by the University) or an equivalent grade in the qualifying examination as indicated against each department.

(b) Candidates with B Sc followed by a professional Diploma, should have studied their B Sc in the 10+2+3 system and obtained at least a SECOND CLASS.

(c) Wherever Bachelor’s degree in Engineering/Technology is prescribed, the minimum eligible qualification for admission, the duration of the such degree courses should be atleast 4 years and wherever Master’s degree is prescribed the minimum duration should be of 2 years, in addition to the 10+2 (i.e. 10th Std and 12th Std). However the candidates who have studied diploma and got exemption of 1 year in the Engineering/Technology are also eligible to apply.

(d) The minimum requirement of a SECOND CLASS in the qualifying examination is relaxed to PASS CLASS for SC/ST candidates.
