How can I Get into IIT Bombay Through GATE Exam? / IIT Bombay Post Graduate Programs & Eligbility

By Himanshu Bajpai|Updated : April 29th, 2022

IIT Bombay Through the GATE Exam: Indian Institute of Technology Bombay offers Master of Technology programmes in various disciplines. The programme aims to train the students in deeper theoretical knowledge, which will enable them to tackle complex practical problems of design and development in industrial fields and pursue further academic achievements through research. So the question which arises in every student's mind is 'How can I get into IIT Bombay through the GATE Exam?'. To solve this problem, we have made it easy for students and evaluated eligibility for PG courses in IIT Bombay, the Cutoff of M.Tech courses, the requirement for PG admission at IIT Bombay etc., in the article shared below in depth.

IIT-Bombay offers full­ time programme of 2-­year and a part ­time programme of 3-­year duration. Full ­time programme includes  Teaching Assistantship (TA), Teaching Assistantship through Project (TAP), Fellowship Award (FA), and Sponsored (SW). The part-time programme includes Sponsored  (SW), Institute Research Assistantship (RA), Research Assistantship through Project (RAP), Project Staff (PS) and Institute Staff (IS). So these are the major programs in which students can get admission to IIT Bombay through the GATE exam.

Eligibility Criteria for M.Tech/M.Tech+Ph.D. (dual degree) Programmes in IIT Bombay

Candidate having an IIT B.Tech. Degree and having a CGPA/CPI score of 8.00 (on a 10 scale) and above are exempted from the requirement of GATE qualification. They will be admitted to M.Tech.Programme under TA/RA positions through written test and interview. But other, all Indian candidates have to give a GATE and attend COAP counselling to get into IIT Bombay through the GATE exam. Other category wise requirements are shared below - 

Requirement of First Class/60%  for PG admission  at IIT Bombay

What is the cut off for Industrial engineering nd research

FAQs

  • IIT Bombay and other IITs and IISc conduct entrance examinations for admission and pre-qualification of students for postgraduate programmes. In addition, GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is organised for admission to M.Tech and PhD programmes.

  • You are recommended to apply for research programmes and PG admission if you have a GATE Score of more than 700 and good knowledge (strong fundamentals required) in the applied department. M Tech (RA) Programme is offered only in CS, EE, and ME departments.

  • Students with ranks from 500 to 800 have also been known to get a dual degree at IITB, namely Mechanical Engineering and M. Tech.

    1. The candidate must have passed B. Tech or its equivalent degree from any recognised institute.
    2. Candidates must have obtained 60% marks in aggregate in their qualifying degree (55% for candidates of reserved category)
  •  IIT Bombay is not available under 500 rank, but it totally depends on what branch you want to take. Not all branches of all IIT Bombay, like CS, may be available at your rank.
