Hi all, I have had a very nominal performance in GATE 2021, current GATE score is ~740. I can’t afford a year-drop, so I started researching contingencies to MTech degrees at top IITs and IISc. Coincidentally I stumbled up these MS/MTech (Research) degrees. These are much more research-centric programmes offered by most IITs/IISc. I have made the following findings as of yet –
IISc – MTech by Research in CSA. Details – https://www.csa.iisc.ac.in/academics/academics-prospectivestudents-regular.php
IIT Madras – MS. Details – http://www.cse.iitm.ac.in/docs/ms-criteria.pdf
IIT Hyderabad – 3 years MTech. Details – https://iith.ac.in/academics/post-graduate/
I am opening this thread of discussion for like-minded people to put in your inputs, so that we can all benefit from each other. I will also be putting in my inputs as and when I stumble upon new insights.
P.S – IIT M and IIT H seem to allow BTech graduates from all streams, but IISc allows students from Computer Science/Engineering, Electronics/Electrical Communication, Information Science/Technology background only. This is a sad news for me, as I am a Mechanical Engineering graduate.
