Admission to the 2-year M. Tech. programmes, is made on the basis of GATE Score/ ISM Entrance Examination and satisfactory performance in an interview, held generally in June – July every year. Candidates sponsored by Govt./Semi-Govt./Public Sector Undertakings, are also admitted to the M. Tech. programmes. Such sponsored candidates are not required to produce GATE Score and are not eligible for scholarship. Candidates seeking admission to M. Tech. programmes without GATE Score, have to qualify in a written test conducted by the School followed by a personal interview; such students are not eligible for any scholarship.
