M.Tech Admission Advises

Alternative exams for admission to M.Tech other than GATE

Three south Indian states Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka have many good and well established private engineering colleges. These colleges have been approved to run M.Tech programs since quite a long time. Till last three years they used to conduct their own exams for M.Tech admissions.

As most of these engineering colleges are under one common university in every state. Recently these universities started conducting a common test and counseling for admission to Master of Engineering degrees (M.Tech/ ME) in private engineering colleges affiliated to them.

If you missed GATE exam or could not qualify for some reasons or have too less scores and want to try an alternative to get into parent institutes directly. You should try these exams.

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. We will update you with TANCET 2010 once official notice is published by Anna University.

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. We will update you with PGCET 2010 once official notice is published by VTU.

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. We will update you with PGECET 2010 once official notice is published by JNTU.

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.

    Since some time I have been following this site as it provides good guidance for M tech aspirants.
    In your section “Alternative exams for admission to M.Tech other than GATE” you have mentioned about three alternate exams which PG aspirants can appear if they have not appeared for GATE. There are also two other exams i.e. VITMEE conducted by VIT, Vellore and SRMEEE conducted by SRM University, Chennai which are an alternative to GATE. I feel you need to add up these too in your list.
