Engineering is one of the most popular courses among Indian students. As a result, India is home to a plethora of engineering colleges, and admittance to these universities is extremely competitive, as candidates must pass an entrance exam to pursue any of the engineering programs.
M.Tech is a postgraduate engineering course that serves as a foundation for pursuing an engineering degree. In this article, we will cover the M.Tech entrance exam in India that should be administered for admission to top engineering universities’ M.Tech courses. So let’s have a look.
About M.Tech Course
Before knowing about entrance exams we must know about the M.Tech course. Here I am giving a brief about the M.Tech course. M.Tech has a variety of specialties in post-graduate engineering programs.
M.Tech degrees provide advanced knowledge and skills in a wide variety of technology from various industries that can be used to boost economic growth. The M.Tech can also be pursued online by candidates who cannot attend regular classes.
The course, which is divided into four semesters, takes two years to complete. The Distance M.Tech program is for people who wish to pursue a master’s degree without ceasing their current job in order to develop additional skills.
M.Tech Evening and M.Tech Working Professionals are two other M.Tech distance learning courses in which the students can attend the classes on weekends. Let us learn more about the distance M.Tech program.
Now when we know about M.Tech we must know whether we are eligible for the course or not. There are a vast number of institutes that offer admissions on the basis of entrance examinations. The common entrance examination to pursue the M.Tech course is GATE.
Many institutes also offer admissions on the basis of GATE scores. If the candidates have not qualified GATE, then those candidates are offered admissions in these institutes on the basis of their performance in the entrance examination that the individual institute has conducted.
To be eligible for these entrance exams the students must be clear their graduation with a BTech degree. So basically the eligibility criteria to pursue an M.Tech course is:-
- The candidates must have a BTech degree in any specialization with a minimum of 50% marks.
- The students need to clear GATE or any entrance exam conducted by different universities.

So in this article, I have mentioned the name of the M.Tech Entrance Exams conducted on the State and National level for M.Tech admission. Furthermore, I would like to emphasize that without taking the entrance examination you can receive direct admission to M.Tech, as many colleges grant admission directly to M.Tech courses.
Without conducting regular classes, you can also complete the M.Tech program. You can take part in M.Tech Evening or M.Tech part-time course, during which you did not need to take part in regular classes. If you wish to participate in M.Tech class without having to leave your job then these courses are the best options for you.
