Have you ever got bored of studying the branch of engineering you are in? Have you ever felt that if you change branch in M.Tech you will do better? Most of the students from Electrical, Mechanical posted these questions whether they can change their branch to Computers or Electronics. I conducted a study of IIT admissions in 2010 and eligibility criteria for admission into different branches. Hope this study will help student who are planning for M.Tech in other branches then their core branch in B.Tech.
This will also help student to apply to IITs with less GATE scores. As an example, if someone has less score in CS & IT paper, they can apply in civil engineering department for Geo Informatics Systems course. As most of the CS students apply for only CS department this gives a great chance for students with lesser scores to apply in other than core departments.
Admission to some of the branches needs valid GATE score in the same department that one wants to change. For example, if someone wants to change for Electrical Engineering to Computer Science in M.Tech, he needs to have a valid GATE score in Computer and IT stream.
The details of the eligibility in different departments with additional requirements are given below. This is more or less same in all institutes especially in IITs but can differ from institute to institute. IITs give more flexibility compared to other institutes. The blow information is mostly influenced by IITM M.Tech admissions and a part of Must Read Articles for M.Tech Admissions.
|M.Tech Course||Eligible Branches||Additional Requirements|
|Aerospace Engineering||Almost all branches are of engineering are eligible||GATE Paper must be Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or XE|
|Civil Engineering||Civil Engineering, Architecture, Other Disciplines in Engg/Technology, Other Disciplines in Science||GATE Paper must be Civil Engineering|
|Chemical Engineering||Biochemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Environmental / Environmental and Civil Engg., Other Disciplines in Engg/Technology, Other Disciplines in Science||GATE Paper must be Chemical Engineering|
|Computer Science||All Branches||GATE Paper must be Computer Science and IT|
|Electrical Engineering||Biomedical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engg., Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Instrumentation, Other Disciplines in Engg/Technology||GATE Paper must be ECE or EEE|
|Mechanical Engineering||Almost All Engineering branches are allowed||GATE paper other than ME|
|Metallurgical and Materials Engineering||Chemical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Production Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering|
|Nuclear Engineering||Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Physics||GATE Paper must be in relevant branch of Engineering|
|Ocean Engineering||Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Marine Engineering||GATE Paper must be other than XL|
|Petroleum Engineering||Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Production Engineering, Naval Architecture||GATE Paper must be CE,CH,ME,MT or XE|
|Physics||Electronics and Communication, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. Physics, Sciences|
I will be making another post related to changing branch in M.Tech by just reversing the order of this table to make easy to understand it either way. This will definitely help students in making a right choice during M.Tech admissions.

Assalamualaikum Bro 🙂
I appreciate your effort very much… particularly since i cudn’t get my concern anywhere else but here in a pretty format. I still have doubt. Being a Mech Engg graduate, wanting to switch over to AE for MTech… I dont understand whether I’ve to choose ME or AE as syllabus while looking into the table you mentioned.
Table 2 from ur link ‘IITM M.Tech admissions’ says ‘Eligible program codes’ like AE1, ME1, ME2…. It goes further into Table 3 with ‘Eligible Discipline Codes’ & ‘Additional Requirements’. It also says ‘GATE Paper must be AE,CE,ME or XE’ . Does it mean AE/CE/ME/XE?
Brother, I am currently from Mech Engg, and only want to do MTech from Aeronautics/Aerospace Enginnering Program (AE code), with this ‘BRANCH TRANSITION’ confusion, I’m unable to decide to which subject should I choose for GATE and what’s the protocol for future (Meaning of Table 2 & table 3) wrt admission in AE in IITs. I haven’t given GATE yet.
If I’ve to choose AE’s syllabus for GATE to get admission into AE programs of IITs, then how do You suggest preparing for the syllabus gap?
I’m confused with no1 around to guide. Possibly when u reply, i’d have more questions. At 23 age, I finally realized my love of life… Help me get there… Your help is deeply appreciated.
I’m a B.E Electronics and Instrumentation graduate. I want to do my M.Tech in Computer Science or MS in computer Science. Is it possible? If yes, what should be done?

I was going through the above table from IIT-M website.There are no mtech progs in IIT-M which take GATE lifescience paper XL score. Still candidates with XL are called for suitability test in april. Can you please clarify on the options for students who write XL paper ? ( everywhere biotech paper BT is preferred).
but sir , placement is very poor or negligible in these branches(mtech only).
I am currently doing BTech 3rd year EIE(instrumentation).
can i do my MTech in VLSI in IIT’s or IISC.which i suppose is purely for BTech ECE.

I passed my b.tech in cse stream now can i change my stream to civil in m.tech pls rpy me sir
My branch is computer science engineering.I have heard that there are less job opportunities after pursuing mtech. The only job opportunity left is teaching. Is that so? please clear this doubt . It will be helpful for me to concentrate on my preparation if the doubt is cleared. I am not so confirmed in my mind that whether i will be getting a satisfying job after completing post graduation. Will the job be relavant as it should be after PG.
I am doing electricals.cud i go to mechanical im mtech?and how cud be the future?
I have one doubt about negative marking system of gate.
As Stated on Gate official Site.
“For Q.1 – Q.25 and Q.56 – Q.60, ⅓ mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For Q.26 – Q.51 and Q.61 – Q.65,1/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. The question pairs (Q.52, Q.53), and (Q.54, Q.55) are questions with linked answers. There will be negative marks only for wrong answer to the first question of the linked answer question pair i.e. for Q.52 and Q.54, 2/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. There is no negative marking for Q.53 and Q.55.”
Is it percentage reduction?
I do understand if I give 3 wrong answers for 1 mark questions, 1 mark will get deducted.
But I have doubt about 2 mark questions. Suppose If I give 3 wrong answers 2 marks deducted or 4 marks deducted?
I have done my B.Tech in IT and I want to do my M.Tech in Aerospace Engg.As you have listed that criteria for getting admission into AE is:GATE paper should be civil,ME,AE,XE.But I found IIT Madras allow CS student(is that GATE paper:CS?) for admission and IISC allow CS student for M.Sc(ENGG.) in AE but what about ME/M.TECH courses admission?
Please do reply if you get any information about AE amission in IITs/IISC for non core branch students like me.

I’m doing B.Tech in Production Engineering(PE).
Am I eligible for any course offered in the IISc?
In this page http://www.iisc.ernet.in/admissions/chapter2.htm
“Production Engineering” isn’t listed.
The syllabus for PE and Mechanical Engg are nearly same.So is there any hope of getting ME1 or ME2 in IIT-M ?
where are you from?
So did u get ME 1 or ME 2 ? What other options did u get after production engineering? I am pursuing the same course and want to do Mtech in environmental engineering. Do u think that will be possible?
I also have similar concern regarding branch change. Can I apply from XE (i.e. engineering sciences) and still get material science and metallurgy branch in IIT’s? Kindly reply sir?.
Note that IITK Nuclear Engg M.Tech accepts all branches of engineering.
