IIT Gandhinagar invites applications to M.Tech. programmes in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and Materials Science & Engineering for the year 2014-2015. The M.Tech. curriculum at IIT Gandhinagar has been designed to be highly creative with a focus on interdisciplinary skills and high quality thesis work. IIT Gandhinagar also offers the option of a post-graduate diploma in engineering (PGDIIT), which is a one year programme designed to be an intensive course-work based programme with no thesis requirements.

Disciplines

  • Chemical Engineering (Research Areas: Nanotechnology, Colloids and Interfaces, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Separation Processes, Polymers, Process Control)
  • Civil Engineering (Research Areas: Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Water-Resources Engineering)
  • Electrical Engineering (Research Areas: Microelectronics, Signal Processing, Fiber Optics, Power Systems, Control Systems, Electrical Machines, VLSI Design, Biomedical Engineering)
  • Materials Science and Engineering ((Research Areas: Metallurgy, Nanomaterials, Biomaterials))
  • Mechanical Engineering (Research Areas: Thermal Science and Engineering, Dynamics and Control, Solid Mechanics)

Minimum Eligibility Criteria

  • Minimum of 55% marks / 5.5 (on a 10 point scale) in B.E. /B.Tech. or equivalent in appropriate branches (50% marks for SC /ST)
  • Candidates who have a valid GATE score (at the time of interview/written test) are eligible to apply for M.Tech. GATE is not required for application to M.Tech. on a part-time basis or for the PGDIIT programme.
  • B.Tech. graduates from the IITs with CGPA/CPI of 8.0 or above (on scale of 10) would be eligible to admission without having to appear in GATE
  • Candidates applying for the regular M.Tech. programme and who are sponsored by their employers do not require GATE score and can be considered as sponsored candidates provided (a) candidate has been in service for more than 2 years (b) employer grants 2 years of study leave and (c) employer undertakes to financially support the candidate for the entire duration of 2 years.The eligibility criteria mentioned above is minimum and the disciplines may use higher cut-off levels for shortlisting. Candidates belonging to SC/ST/PD categories would be eligible for relaxations, as per norms, in the selection criteria.

Programme Requirements

The M.Tech. programme at IITGN places strong emphasis on both course work and research dissertation/thesis, while the DIIT programme only places emphasis on course work. The thesis is compulsory for the award of an M.Tech. degree. It is expected that the thesis will result in high quality scholarly publications and national and international conference presentations. A thesis is not required for the DIIT degree.

  • 4-semester fully-residential programme (may take longer to complete in some cases, depending on the progress of the thesis work)
  • Total minimum 80 credits in course work and thesis.

Course Work

  • 32-48 credits of course work (equivalent of 8-12 courses)
  • A typical course of 3 lectures per week is assigned 4 credits
  • Course work would comprise
    • - Humanities, Social Sciences and Management Courses - minimum 6 credits
    • - General Institute Courses - minimum 6 credits
    • - Basic Engineering Courses - minimum 6 credits
    • - Departmental Core and Elective Courses - balance of the required credits.
  •  Normally spread over first 3 semesters

Thesis

  • 32-48 credits of thesis work ( equivalent of 8-12 courses of 4 credits each); can be a research- oriented, developmental, or on an industrially relevant topic
  • Open ended thesis with no deadline for submission
  • Each thesis unit registered will be assigned S (satisfactory) or U (unsatisfactory) grades
  • Grades of thesis units are not counted for the calculation of SPI/CPI.
  • Candidates should satisfactorily complete the thesis work for the award of an M.Tech degree and this may require more than 48 research credits.

Continuation in the M.Tech. Programme

  • A student should maintain a minimum SPI of 5.5 and a minimum CPI of 6.0 at the end of every semester in coursework.
  • A student should not accumulate more than three U grades in project.
  • Full-time M. Tech. students will have a maximum of three years to earn the degree.

"Category wise reservations on overall available seats will be followed as per Government of India norms."

Admission Procedure

Admission is generally offered on the basis of a written test and interview. The Institute will invite a limited number of candidates for a written test and interview based on the academic records and/or GATE score. The Institute reserves the right to use its own judgment while determining the candidate’s level of competency based on the available information. The final selection will be based on all of above, viz., academic records, GATE score, written test and interview. The Institute may also exercise the option of offering admission to a few outstanding candidates based on academic record and/or GATE, without calling them for written test and interview.

The written test is generally based on the topics related to general aptitude (logical reasoning, analytical and numerical ability, etc.), engineering mathematics, and basic courses in various disciplines up to 3rd year of undergraduate programme. The candidates who do not qualify in the written test need not appear for interview. The reserved category candidates will be given due relaxation in cutoff marks as per the norms.

The candidates called for the Test and Interview will be reimbursed any amount exceeding Rs.600/- for to and fro single second-sleeper class railway fare by the shortest route from their place of residence to the Institute /venue of the Test / Interview. For example, in case of total railway fare of Rs.1400/- the candidate will be reimbursed Rs.800/-. It is required to produce evidence (railway ticket) in support of the claim.
