Sarada Prasad Rath
According to a recent notification, the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) Bhubaneswar has released the first round of selection list for M Tech admissions for the July 2020 academic session. The admission is done for 14 MTech specializations from five schools of the Institute. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shortlisting and selection of the candidates have been based on the GATE 2020 (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) score with some weightage given to the performance of the candidates in the B. Tech and 12th examinations.
The institute reported a very significant rise in the opening and closing GATE scores of the selected candidates in all categories of reservation and in all the programmes this year compared to the last year. The average rise this year in the opening and closing ranks over the last year is 8.6% and 12.17% respectively.

“Obviously a student would like to choose the best possible institute for their own education. As you know the closing and the opening scores of the selected list of candidates is an acid test of how an Institution is functioning since it directly reflects the confidence level of the stakeholders. We have been observing this rising trend for the last three years in all the programmes including BTech, MTech, and MSc at IIT Bhubaneswar, despite that the seats in the IIT System are significantly increasing over time. A rise of 12.17% is very significant, it is very satisfying to all of us at IIT Bhubaneswar, it would encourage us to work harder and I am confident that the institute will continue this rising trend in the coming years”, says Prof .R V Raja Kumar, Director.
Dr P. R. Sahu, Dean Academic Affairs mentioned that like the previous year, the Institute is participating in the centralized admission procedure through Common Offer Acceptance Portal (COAP) for offering admission to the candidates. The first round of offer was released in the last week and there will be a total of 10 rounds of the offer, the last of which will be between 7-9th August 2020. This year the undergraduate admissions will take some more time due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
