Admission process after GATE Aerospace 2018

GATE 2018 results will be out on 17 March, and immediate worry for everyone is Admissions!! We have tried to simplify whole process for you; just read on.

In GATE exam, you get 4 details on your result card:

  1. Marks out of 100
  2. Your All India Rank (AIR)
  3. Score out of 1000 for Current year

While 1 & 2 can make you happy (or sad), they don't have any say in admission process. What is considered for admissions is score out of 1000. Since GATE score is valid for 3 years, the score is issued for current year and next year/s. So your year 2016 score is going to matter for admissions this year.

Colleges

Prominent institutes offering admission in Aerospace departments are:

  1. IISc Bengaluru,
  2. IIT Bombay (IITB) Mumbai,
  3. IIT Madras (IITM) Chennai,
  4. IIT Kharagpur (IITKgp),
  5. IIT Kanpur (IITK),
  6. Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advance Scientific Research (JNCASR), Bangalore
  7. Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology (IIST), Thiruvananthapuram
  8. Defence Institute of Advance Technology (DIAT), Pune
  9. Madras Institute of Technology (MIT), Chennai
  10. Birla Institute of Technology (BIT), Mesra
  11. Indian Institute of Engineering and Science Technology (IIEST), Shibpur.

Cutoff & Seats (ME/M.Tech.)

IISc, IITB, IITM, and IITKgp offer direct admission to ME/M.Tech. program on the basis of gate score. Usually candidates upto AIR 45 get admission. IITK conducts a written test before giving admission. In this test 70% weightage is given to gate score and 30% to the test, Candidates with rank upto 250 can get call for this test. It is seen that AIRs upto 100 get seat in one of these colleges, generally.

Candidates with AIR 100+ can get call from DIAT and IIST for written test and /or interviews. And there's a good chance of getting admission till AIR 150.

At MIT (Madras institute of Technology), Anna University, admission is through GATE and TANCET (Tamil Nadu Common Entrance Test). The forms are available in the month of July and counseling is done in the month of August. First preference is given to the GATE qualified student who has filled the form for common counseling. The students who have not been able to qualify GATE have to clear TANCET 2018 for the admission to the department of Anna University and approved state colleges. Compare to all other colleges of Tamil Nadu, MIT has good opportunities.

At BIT, Mesra 12 seats are for gate qualified and 12 seats are for non-gate students and these seats are interchangeable. Preference is given to the GATE qualified students and then to non-gate student.

You can check last years' cut-offs by clicking here.

MS & Direct Ph.D. Admissions

IITM, IISc and JNCARoffers research based programs at master’s level (Masters in Science, MS). The duration of the course is 2-3 years. It is a research based program so the duration depends on completion of your project. If you can finish it in 1.5 years, you can get MS degree in 1.5 years too. But it generally takes anywhere between 2 to 3 years. If you are highly interested for research based programs then you are encouraged to apply to these programs independently. They will shortlist on the basis of gate score and you will be called for written test and/or interview accordingly.

Some IITs like IITB, IITM also offer direct PhD after BE/B.Tech. For this you have to fill the form separately. They will shortlist you on the basis of gate score and you will be called for written test and interview. In some cases, written test are ignored and direct interview is taken.

These admissions take place twice an year. July-August and December-January.

Admission Process 2018

All Institutes offering admission start their online admission process in Feb-March, but you should apply only after having GATE result in hand.

Should I go for M.Tech or MS or direct Ph.D?

After GATE exam, one can take admission to M.Tech/ME programs offered by IITs, IISc, and Govt/Centralized/Deemed Universities. But these days, many programs such as MS [Masters of Science in Engineering – by Research], M.Tech [Master of Technology – by Research], D.PhD [Direct Ph.D.] are offered by many IITs and IISc apart from their regular M.Tech programs. The structure, criteria and eligibility of these programs is slightly different from a regular M.Tech program. In this post, I would like to make clear the admission process, differences, pros and cons between these programs in brief.

Regular M.Tech Program

The most common program which is offered after GATE is M.Tech/ME in Engineering. This program is well structured, organized and definite timed base course. Student has to complete the minimum requirement of core courses offered by the department and the elective courses (can be from the same department or other department also) with minimum grade requirement.
This program is a 2 year course and under some adverse condition it can be extended for another 6 months (who fails to fulfill the minimum requirements for completing ME/M.Tech).
Mostly, the first year consists of coursework and second year is for the project and thesis. By the end of the fourth semester, the student has to submit a project report and/or thesis as per the department/institute stated guidelines.

Admission Process

The admission process is very straight forward. It is solely based on the GATE score only. There are many departments which allow for cross GATE score (for example, a student with GATE Mechanical Engineering (ME) can apply to Aerospace department for their M.Tech Aerospace Engineering program).
Some IITs may ask for additional suitability test and/or interview for cross GATE scores. There are some M.Tech programs which might require additional requirements of written test and/or interview.

Master of Science (in Engineering – by Research) / M.Tech (by Research)

MS in Engineering - by research is offered by IITM, IITK, IITKGP, IITD and M.Tech - by research is offered by IITB and IISc. The concept and the structure of both the courses is almost similar. These programs are like mini-Ph.D program where a student is focused on a particular area of research of his/her own interest.

Student is provided a Guide/Research Advisor (who will play a critical role during the whole program) as per his research interest and the requirement of the lab. The important point to remember is that the research interest of student as well as advisor should match so that at any point of time advisor can provide the guidance.

After selecting the advisor student undergoes general courses which are consistent with the research theme of the lab and student interest. The course work, literature review and problem definition is completed mostly within 2-3 semesters. The completion of research for the defined problem may take around 1.5 - 2 years after completing the coursework. The minimum criteria such as publication in peer review journals, national/international conferences as per advisor and IIT should be fulfilled for the successful completion of MS/M.Tech program by research.

Advantages

  1. This helps in developing problem solving capability on the cutting edge technologies.
  2. You would be working on the real time problem/project or futuristic problem/project.
  3. This will help you to develop the skills required for research-oriented jobs in labs and industries. You will be directly part of a scientific community where there will be a contribution from your end for the benefit of the society directly or indirectly in some way.
  4. The best advantage of these programs is that even with a lower GATE score, one can expect a call from IITs for admission.
  5. This will give you an essence/taste of a research program (such as Ph.D) at very early stage of your life which can help you to mould your career either in research field, academia or into industrial/service jobs accordingly.
  6. You can convert your MS program into Direct Ph.D. programs at any time during the course upon fulfilling the minimum criteria required to do so. This may help you in saving time if you intend to pursue Ph.D. after MS/M.Tech.
  7. You also get a chance for attending a fully funded national and international conference once during your stay at the institute.

Disadvantages

  1. These research programmes are independent of time. On an average, it takes around 3 years.
  2. You will be master of a particular subject or research area while a regular M.Tech student would have a broad and a generalized view about many areas as they undergo many graduate level courses in short period of time (2 years).

Admission Process

The admission process to these research-based Master programs is different from the regular M.Tech admission process.
The candidates are shortlisted for a written test and/or interview on the basis of GATE score with additional requirements such as BE/B.Tech score, projects, professional skills like programming, industrial software tools, projects done during BE/B.Tech etc.
The general rule is 70:30 weightage for interview and GATE score respectively.

Direct Ph.D. Program

The program is almost similar to the MS program with additional requirements such as 2-3 peer review publications with additional participation in national/international conferences (these requirements vary from advisor to advisor and institutes).

Admission process is also similar to the MS program. On an average duration of direct PhD program is about 5-6 years.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

In a nutshell, if you are looking for any direct job after your post graduation, then M.Tech will be a good choice.
If you are looking for a career in Research, then MS will give you a solid foundation. After MS from IITs, one can get fully funded Ph.D. in many foreign universities.

Doesn't mean that one doesn't get a job after MS. I got one.
