ACE Academy Congratulates all its students who have got good ranks in the GATE–11.
NOTE: The following suggestions / guidelines for M.Tech admissions have been prepared by us considering the information given by previous students based on their score & Rank
The Civil Engineering students are eligible to apply for M.Tech in the following departments.
Suggested Order Of Preferences for M.Tech:
Premier Institutes, in the order of preference
Selection Criteria for M.Tech:
The selection is, generally, based on GATE Rank/Percentile/Score. However, some IITs, NITs and other colleges may additionally conduct a written test / Interview. In such a case, the GATE rank 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 each year. The selection criteria may vary from year to year and from college to college. It also depends on the branch /specialization opted.
* The previous cut-off ranks/percentiles are sometimes kept in the web sites of some IITs. The notification for M.Tech admissions will be released separately by IISc, each IIT and other Universities in the leading News Papers. The notification will also be made available in the respective college web site. The students are requested to visit the web site of each IIT for all details. The students can apply for various specializations by mentioning the order of preferences. Depending upon the merit, appropriate specialization will be offered.
* AMIE candidates can get admissions based on their GATE rank in IIT, Madras, Kharagpur & Roorkee. Whereas in other IITs they require to possess some additional professional experience and other qualifications.
Stipend for M.Tech :
Stipend/Scholarship of is available for GATE- qualified candidates (with more than the cut-off marks) in the form of Teaching assistance ship or Research assistance ship etc. The teaching assistance ship may be preferred, if possible.
It offers 2 years PG Diploma in Industrial Engineering. It is a management course equivalent to MBA. It has good campus placements. All the students who have more than 85 percentile are eligible to apply. The admission is purely based on marks secured in the Group Discussion & Interview to be conducted by it later. Strongly recommended to join. Excellent salary packages and campus placements.
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 Rank/percentiles. The top rankers generally opt Structural Engg. or Satellite Technology or Aerospace Engg. 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 rank/Percentile and the interview conducted by the respective IIT. For Structures in IIT, Bombay and Gowhati, there will be a written test and followed by 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, Roorkee & Kharagpur:
Generally admissions are given on the basis of GATE rank/Percentile.
This Institute has good placements. Computer aided Structural Engineering and Building Science, are the two specializations available for Civil Engg. students. The Computer Aided Structural Engineering can be preferred. Stipend will be given for M.Tech, in the second year only. The selection is purely based on the performance in a separate written test to be conducted by it all over the Country and interview.
NITs & Other Universities:
Some of these colleges give admissions based on the GATE rank and other colleges conduct an interview also.
Computer Science: Civil Engg. students can seek admission in M.Tech Computer Science in REC, Warangal, Anna University(Chennai), Central University( Hyderabad), Osmania University( Hyderabad) etc. Selection is based on the performance in the written test conducted separately by the respective University.
Non Stipend M.Tech or Self Financed 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 for Non-stipend or Self financed MTech in IITs. The Students who have low GATE percentile can get good specializations.
Other University Colleges:
SVU, Tirupathi; JNTU, Hyderabad, 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 rank/percentile. The students who have less GATE ranks can apply these colleges.
MS Programme in IITs:
Special attention for SC/ST students: We strongly suggest you to apply for premier institutes like IIT’s irrespective of your ranks. Luck may favor 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 to apply for M.Tecch. 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 rank and your desire to do M.Tech in the respective IIT. Request them to give you a chance so that you can prove yourself. Some professors would encourage the students who are seriously interested, inspite of the above negative 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.
WISH U ALL THE BEST
