Candidates in the final year/semester of M.Sc./B.E./B.Tech./B.S. or B.Sc. Engineering / B.Sc.[Tech])
The candidate should be in the final year/semester of M.Sc./B.E./B.Tech./B.S. or B.Sc. Engineering/B.Sc.[Tech] Degree course in recognized Universities in one of the disciplines as mentioned above in Category-A and Category-B. Such candidates should have scored marks above 60% in each previous semester/year and minimum aggregate of 60% in B.Sc. level [in the case of M.Sc. candidates]. In case such candidates eventually join the Centre, they shall have acquired aggregate marks of 60% in the qualifying degrees. Relevant certificates to this effect should be submitted at the time of joining the Centre.
Note: Candidates with M.E and M.Tech degrees can also apply, however they should have secured 60% and above in the qualifying degree (B.E/ BTech/ M.Sc).
Candidates in all the categories should have had consistently good academic record.
