Admission to the MCA programme is based on the written test conducted by the University. The written test consists of objective type questions in two parts. Part ‘A’ deals with general mental ability (consisting of items on reasoning, analysis, comprehension and synthesis). Part ‘B’ deals with mathematical topics such as Sets, Relations, Integration, Differentiation, Analytical Geometry, Trigonometry, Vectors, Matrices, Determinants, Differential Equations, Elementary Probability and Statistics, Number Systems, Data Representation, Algorithms and Flowcharts.
Admission to M.Tech. in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology courses is based on a written test followed by an interview. The written test consists of objective type questions. Syllabus for the test will be in Computer Science subjects that include Computer Programming (C and C++), Data Structures, Algorithms, Operating Systems, Computer Organization, Digital Electronics, Computer Networks, Engineering Mathematics and General Aptitude. The short-listed candidates will be called for interview.
GATE percentile will be the basis to call the students for written test. Following table summarizes the cutoff for various categories of applicants having valid GATE scores to be called for written test:
GE SC/PH/OBC ST
GATE scores in percentile (> or =) 90 80 65
Division of students between Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology is based on the options they have exercised at the time of applying. Request for change of option will not be entertained at the time of interview. Admission and tuition fees for all the three M.Tech. programmes are uniform. GATE scores, Written Test and Oral Interview will be having the following weightages, ie., 25%, 50% and 25%.
The written test for admission to the Ph.D. programme will have objective type questions, short answer questions, descriptive questions and technical comprehension. The written test covers the areas of Computer Organisation, Computer Programming, Discrete Mathematics, Data Structures, Algorithms, Operating Systems, Database Management Systems, Graph Theory, Computer Networks, Automata. The number of candidates called for interview is four times the available seats. Candidates must indicate their research interest. Foreign students are required to submit past academic records, three reference letters, and statement of purpose. They must have good ability to communicate in English. In order to support the claim a good score in TOEFL is desirable.At the time of interview candidates must come prepared with a tentative research plan writeup of maximum size of 4 pages.
