  • Admission Procedure

    Admission Procedure

    Admission is generally offered on the basis of an interview and a written test (if any). The Institute will invite a limited number of candidates for a written test (if any) and interview based on the academic records and/or GATE score. The Institute reserves the right to use its own judgment while determining the candidate's level of competency based on the available information.

    The written test (if any) is generally based on the topics related to general aptitude (logical reasoning, analytical and numerical ability, etc.), engineering mathematics, and basic courses in various disciplines up to 3rd year of undergraduate programme. The candidates who do not qualify in the written test need not appear for the interview. The reserved category candidates will be given due relaxation in cutoff marks as per the norms.

    Due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic scenario, the interview and the written test (if any) may be conducted via online platforms.
