M.Tech by Research

In India, a Master of Engineering or Master of Technology or Master of Science in Engineering Degree is a Postgraduate Programme in Engineering or Technology. This is generally a 2-year specialization programme in a specific branch of engineering or a technical field. Students typically enter the ME/M.Tech/MSc Engg programmes after completing a 4-year undergraduate programme in Engineering resulting in the award of a Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology Degree, or a 5-year programme in Science or Applied Sciences resulting in the award of a Master of Science Degree.

The ME/M.Tech/MSc Engg programmes in India are usually structured as an Engineering Research Degree, lesser than Ph.D and considered to be parallel to M.Phil and M.S Degrees in Humanities and Science respectively. M.Tech and MSc Engg programmes in India were started by some well known institutions with the aim of producing Research Engineers who can get the position of “Technologist” as well in the Industries and Research Institutes. In Electrical Engineering, for example, areas of specialization might include: power systems, electrical machines, instrumentation and control, high voltage or power electronics, telecommunications, communication networks, signal processing, microelectronics.

More than 50 Universities including IITs and NITs have launched M.Tech. by research for external candidates who are engaged in their duties and are earning. No financial assistance or hostel accommodation is provided. However, the M.Tech (Research) candidate’s status may be classified as either M.Tech. (Research) candidates paid by the Government / Semi Government Organizations or Sponsored candidates or Faculty, Staff and Project Specialists of any organization including university, institution, public and private sector undertakings or External candidates from any private or public sector organization or research laboratory. External candidates are allowed to carry out their research work at their respective places of work at their parent organization after fulfilling certain pre-requisites at the university and are required to produce a relevant sponsorship or No Objection Certificate for the Employer.
Eligibility for Admission : B.E. / B.Sc. (Engineering) / B.Tech / Master's Degree (M.Sc.) in the relevant branches of science / applied science.

Duration: The selected candidates will be conducting research under the supervision of a Guide having requisite qualification. While there will be an assessment and continuing evaluation of the candidate's performance throughout the coming two years, the M.Tech. Thesis will be presented on the completion of the first two years from the date of admission and registration.

Award : The M.Tech. Thesis submitted by the candidate with the recommendation of the Guide will be required to be defended at an open viva-voce examination. The Degree of M.Tech. shall be awarded by the UGC-MHRD Recognised University along with a Migration Certificate to the successful candidates.

Selection: The prospective M.Tech. candidates are selected on the basis of an Entrance Examination conducted by the University at different locations in India in the last week of June and December every year. The subjects and topics for the Entrance Test will include science, general knowledge, communication and research methodology.

Admission: The selected candidates will be required to submit a synopsis in consultation with his/her Research Guide/Supervisor. Based on the clearance from the Research Board of the University, admissions will be confirmed by also notifying the specific topic for research selected by the M.Tech. (Research) candidate who will start researching on the notified topic.

The selected candidates will be required to pay the tuition and other fee as mentioned below :

Registration Fee and Admission Fee

Rs. 2,500.00
