Eligibility for admission to M. Tech course:

Eligibility qualification to be fulfilled by the candidates for applying to the M. Tech course offered by the IT BHU in different branches is as follows:

Civil, Electrical, Electronics, Mining, chemical, Mechanical Engineering: For admission to these branches, candidates must have completed their B. Tech/equivalent degree in respective branches.

Metallurgical Engineering: To apply to this course, candidates with B. Tech or equivalent degree in chemical technology, mechanical engineering, ceramic/chemical/mineral engineering, materials science engineering or metallurgical engineering are eligible to apply. Candidates with M. Sc chemistry or Physics with specialization in inorganic chemistry/physical chemistry/solid state physics with 60% of above are also eligible to apply if and only when they have completed B. Sc/B. Sc (honors) with mathematics as one of the subject at the UG level.

Industrial Management & System Engineering: Candidates with B. Tech or equivalent in any branch of engineering are eligible to apply to these two branches of M. Tech course.

Ceramic Engineering: For M. Tech course in ceramic engineering, candidates with B. Tech or its equivalent degree in silicate technology/materials science & technology/chemical engineering & technology/metallurgical/mechanical/electrical/electroics/civil/ceramic engineering are eligible to apply. Also, candidates with Master of Science in Physics with special papers in electronics/solid state or Master of Science in Chemistry with special papers in solid state chemistry/inorganic chemistry/physical chemistry with not less than 60% or above are eligible to apply provided they have passes B. Sc/B. Sc (hons.) exam with physics, chemistry and mathematics at the UG level.

Material Science & Technology: For admission to the Master of Technology course in Material Science & Technology course, candidates with B. Tech or equivalent degree in any branch are eligible to apply and candidates with M. Sc in chemistry/physics/material science with not less than 60% of marks are also eligible. However, it is essential that candidates with M. Sc qualification must have studied statistics/computer science/chemistry and mathematics and physics at the UG level.

For all of the above said branches, Candidates who are waiting for their results in the final year of their B. Tech/equivalent course are also eligible to apply for the M. Tech courses, however, these candidates will have to submit a certificate along with mark sheets from the concerned institution stating that they have taken up all examinations pertaining to the degree course and there is no pending examination except the final examination for them. Provisional admission will be offered to these candidates until they produce documentary evidence for clearing the qualifying examination, failing which their admission will remain cancelled.
