For eligibility criteria for all the programmes, interested candidates are requested to refer PG Admission 2017-18 page uploaded on the official website of IIT BHU:
MTech/MPharm Programme: Candidates will be shortlisted on the basis of GATE/GPAT Score, which is valid and above the qualifying pass mark may be selected for M.Tech/MPharm. programmes either on the basis of their GATE/GPAT score or written test or interview or on the basis of any combination of these as declared by the individual department/school.
PhD programmes: Admission to PhD programmes will be based normally on written test and/or interview of the candidates shortlisted by the DPGC of the Department/School concerned. The short listing for calling for written test and/or interview may be done based either on the percentage marks/CPI in the qualifying examination or on the GATE/GPAT score. If the results of the qualifying examination for a candidate are not declared, the marks/CPI obtained by the candidate up to and including the previous semester may be considered for short listing.
However, outstanding candidates, who have acquired their qualifying degrees from the premier institutions such as IITs and other engineering institutions, which are upto top 35 ranks as announced by NIRF in 2017, will be considered for admission without GATE, provided they have obtained a CPI of 8.0 or above (on a 10.0 point scale) in the qualifying examination.
