b) Metallurgical & Materials Engineering: Degree in Metallurgy, Metallurgical & Materials Engineering, Ceramic Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or M.Sc. in Physics or Chemistry.
c) Ceramic Engineering: B.Tech./B.E. in Ceramic Engineering / Chemical Technology / Metallurgical Engineering / Metallurgical & Materials Engineering / Chemical Engineering / Electrical Science OR M.Sc. in Physics / Chemistry / Material Science.

In case a course does not get enough students to make the course viable, the students admitted to that course will be transferred to other courses according to the student’s preference given in his application form.

Except for sponsored candidates, selection is strictly based on GATE percentile. In case GATE qualified candidates are not available admission may be given to other candidates on the basis of selection based on marks in qualifying degree and a written and /or oral examination.

They have to apply in prescribed form through their employers with suitable endorsement. All sponsored candidates satisfying the above criteria will be called for interview. They are advised to come with experience certificate and other relevant documents such as pay-slip, appointment order & I.D. card. The percentage marks requirement for sponsored candidates may be relaxed by Senate up to 55% or CGPA 6.0 if documentary evidence of proven research & professional experience are submitted.

B.Sc. with the subject applied for as one of the subjects (pass or Honours) . Mathematics in +2 level is compulsory. Admission to the programme will be made through an Entrance Examination to be conducted by the Institute on 03.07.2006 (Monday) and career marking as decided by the Institute. Candidates appearing B.Sc. final Examination may also apply for the above programme in due date, however they are required to submit their mark sheet at the time of Entrance Examination.

 M.Tech (Research)
