Admission Procedure: - The process is different for all the four programs (ME/MTECH/MS/MSc) offered by IISC.

ME: - The admission is purely based on Gate Performance (AIR/Score). There is no test and interview. Rank below 50(AIR 50)
can almost guarantee a seat in ME Course.

MTECH: - Admission to this program is based on the performance in test and interview conducted by respective department.
Center of Electronic Design and Technology (CEDT) and Computational Science department offer MTech Course. A rank of 400-
500 in EC/CS/EE can be said safe range for getting the call for CEDT Course whereas rank in the range of 80-90 is considered
to be safe for getting call from Computational Science department.
MS/MSc: - These are research-orientated programs and admission to these programs is also based on test/interview. Rank as
high as 700-800 could end up in giving an interview call for these programs.

IISC also conducts its own entrance test and good performance (Score/rank) in this test will also be helpful in getting the
interview calls if Gate Score is not sufficient enough for applying.

procedure for every department is as follow

Computer Science: Normally, half of total seats are filled up by direct admission i.e. based on Gate performance and for the
remaining seats test and interview is conducted.
There are no hard and fast rules for total number of student taken each year. The interview panel can take as many students as
possible depending upon their performance in interview. Final merit list is made based on the performance in test, interview
and Gate Score. As per the opinion of previous year students higher the rank in test is, better is the chance of making in the
final merit list. Gate Score hardly makes any difference.

Electrical Engineering: The department offers four different courses. The department does not conduct any test for the
admission to MTech course. Admission is purely based on the interview. The students who got interview call are asked to fill up
one application form once they reach and they have to choose one course/specialization out of four. Finally there are four
separate groups and interview is conducted separately for each group or specialization. Final merit list is made based on the
performance in interview and Gate.

Mechanical Engineering: - MTech seats are offered direct and based on test/interview, similar to Computer Science department. One common
interview is conducted for all the specialization falling under Mechanical Engineering and final merit list is based on the performance in interview
and Gate Score. Once Again it is the performance of student in interview, which plays a major role for selection.
