M Tech Entrance Exams in India


M.Tech Programme

Master of Technology (M.Tech) is a postgraduate program in technology, which is generally a two-year specialization program. Students who have successfully completed a four-year undergraduate program in engineering resulting in the award of a Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology degree, or a 5-year program in Science or Applied Sciences resulting in the award of a Master of Science degree are eligible for M.Tech program. In India, the ME/MTech/MSc Engg programs are usually structured as an Engineering Research degree. AICTE standardized the duration of the course to two years to give practical exposure in the industry and more research orientation. Three years weekend ME/MTech programs are also offered by some Universities.

About Indian Institutes of Technology

The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are a group of autonomous engineering and technology-oriented institutes declared as Institutes of National Importance by the Parliament of India. IITs are the best place to opt for doing the M.Tech Program. IITs are located in different states of the country. The IITs that offer the M.Tech program are the ones located in Kharagpur, Bombay, Madras, Kanpur, Delhi, and Roorkee. The Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore also offer M.Tech program. Admissions to M.Tech programs in IIT are done on the basis of Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE).

The GATE cutoff scores for IITs are as follows:




Computer Science

Open / General


Electronics and Communication

Open / General


Electrical Engineering

Open / General


Mechanical Engineering

Open / General


Civil Engineering

Open / General


People who do not have a good GATE percentile or could not qualify the GATE can also get into some top colleges and Universities in India. If you are selected through non GATE you will not get stipend whereas if you got selected through GATE you will get stipend.

Admission to Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) or National Institute of Technology (NITs) Without GATE score (NON-GATE):

Most of the student can not imagine going to IITs without tough completion, which is a correct assumption. But there are ways to get into IITs and NITs without GATE scores too.

Below are the possible cases.

Sponsored Candidates: If you are working in industry for over three year and can prove that your employer is ready to allow you to go to study by letters from authority, you can apply under this category.

There are few seats reserved under this category in both IITs and NITs.

Quality Improvement Program (QIP): This is started by Govt. of India to improve the quality of teaching staff in state colleges by giving them a chance to attend India’s top most engineering schools. All the faculty members with three years plus experience are eligible for this.

Kindly read the upcoming post giving detail view of these programs.

Admission to Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIITs):

They conduct their own exam for admission. Anyone can apply and try to get admission for Master of Engineering. These colleges are deemed universities and have good infrastructure and placements.

Admission to Central and State Universities:

Few Central Universities conduct there own exams and few consider GATE scores too. Most of the State University doesn’t get GATE qualified students, therefore they conduct their own written test and interview.

Private Deemed Universities:

These days in India there are many professional private universities offering masters in

engineering. They conduct their won exam and interview. Admission is easy but they may charge huge fee.

Private Engineering colleges offering Master of Engineering:

AICTE approve many old private engineering colleges to start M.Tech course because of infrastructure and faculty. Admission these are easy but may be expensive.

Part Time Master of Engineering:

Few State universities offer this program with the condition that student must live within the some distance (for example 30KM) radius from universities. Class usually conducted in evening and weekends.

Distance M.Tech Program:

This is most risky program, because many fraud universities offer M.Tech distance program that is not affiliated to any accreditation committee.

TANCET (Tamil Nadu Common Entrance Test):

This exam is conducted by Anna University for admission to M.Tech and other PG courses in its affiliated colleges.

Post Graduate Common Entrance Test (PGCET) Karnataka:

This exam is counducted by Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) for admission to M.Tech and other PG courses in its affiliated colleges.

Post-Graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test (PGECET):

PGECET is conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University on behalf of APSHCE (Andhra Pradesh state higher education council) for admission into M.E. / M,Tech./M.Pharm./M.Arch / M.Plg. (full time) in University and affiliated Engineering colleges in A.P.

Usually the notification for these exams comes during first and second week of April. We will update as soon as the notifications appear on official websites.
