Can a non-CS BTech get admission into MTech CSE at IITB or not? If so, are there any location issues?

Yes, any student in the branch can enter MTech CSE at IIT Bombay, but GATE must be at CSE. In Iisc other branches are also eligible under investigation and each IIT has an inter-disciplinary department that allows another branch.

During gate Cse preparation, you will learn the basics of computer science, so there will be no problem in placement.

There many non-CSE people opened the Cse gate and got a good location. You can google some popular names like ravishankar Mishra, debashiah, himadri bharadwaj and many more.

Hi yes, non-CSE B.tech student can enter M.tech CSE at IITB or any IIT since you write and grade GATE with computer science as your subject. No problem will arise during your placements either, interviewers may ask you the reason for switching to CSE for M.tech, but that's it.

  • JEE is awarded by 10 lakh of students competing for 10,000 IIT seats, similarly GATE is awarded by different engineering departments competing for those specific seats, for example 2 lakh Mechanical Engg. students compete for about 1500-2000 seats. Therefore, there is not much difference here. Both are almost the same in the pre-results competition!
  • In JEE you only have to prepare 3 subjects, but then you also have to take care of the 12th tables. GATE has 12-15 different subjects to prepare, but then the same ones are taught in your B..Tech curriculum.

  • In JEE you only have to prepare 3 subjects, but then you also have to take care of the 12th tables. GATE has 12-15 different subjects to prepare, but then they are taught in your B..Tech curriculum. Therefore, both exams are almost similar in terms of the difficulty of the syllabus.

In JEE, getting a good rank is enough to get admission, but the same is not the case with GATE. Let me explain how having a good GATE score does not guarantee admission!

In GATE, if 1st place gets 80/100 and 11th place gets 40/100, even though they are 11th in all of India, they will not be able to enter.

The reason is given below, given the mathematical formula that turns your grades into a proper proficiency check. You get your marks converted to 0f 1000 scale.

So the limit is not in terms of rank, but in terms of their normalized 1000 ratings. Therefore, the mechanical engineer who gets 1500 AIR gets a normalized score of 750/1000, but someone from the biotech ranking 150 AIR gets a score of 500/1000. This difference is due to the scale of competition in these branches.

In addition to the formula above, you must appear for written tests and interviews, after which you get an admission. Therefore, the probability of getting admissions even after getting a good GATE rating is much lower compared to JEE.

In my day, after getting the GATE score, I was called in for a departmental written exam at IITB. They shortlisted 120 candidates out of 600 from the written test for the final interview. They finally selected 26 of us who got admission.

With all due respect to JEE and JEE crackers, I would suggest that the post-outcome / probability of admission process in an IIT is more difficult in GATE compared to JEE.

The average package in computer science depends on several factors, such as the skills you need to have and the ease with which you can easily and productively solve problems. And here are some statistics that I have mentioned according to the field of study offered at CSE.

  • CSE with specialization in Machine Learning (In machine learning the average package goes from 4 to 10Lpa as cooler)
  • CSE with specialization in Data Science (in Data Science the average package ranges from 6 to 15Lpa as latest)
  • CSE with specialization in Big Data (In Big Data the average package goes from 6 to 18Lpa as cooler)
  • CSE with specialization

  • CSE with specialization in Cybersecurity (In Data Science the average package ranges from 6 to 15Lpa as freshest)
  • CSE with specialization in Full Stack Web Developer (In Web Development the average package goes from 4 to 8Lpa as fresh)
  • CSE with specialization in Android Application Development (In Android development the average package ranges from 6 to 12 Lpa as cooler)
  • CSE with specialization in Cloud Computing (In Cloud Computing the average package goes from 6 to 20Lpa like new)

Now, coming to the average pack based on the question, you should get a feel for that with the skill stats.

But in the normal case, the package seems to average 4.5Lpa and may reach 6Lpa this year due to pandemics, placements have also been affected.

No matter what package college placements offer, what really matters is your skills and knowledge. Work fearlessly on your skills, you will undoubtedly achieve the best and will not be on average once among the highest.

There are several skills-based portals available on the internet where you can get a job and internships very well. So stay focused on skills and knowledge rather than locations.

The internship portal available with us is CoCubes, Amcat, ELitmus, Blue-Tie, engineeringconnect, etc ...

The government has not yet formally recognized the need for software development and piracy in its various departments. At least not at the officer level. I am too inexperienced to argue further on this point.

What struck me was his claim that the government is unfair to computer science graduates. Guess what? LIFE IS UNFAIR!

Whenever you choose a career, you CHOOSE in a way with all its scope and limitations. There is no prize offered by the universe or the government to choose him. You have to make your way on your own.

If it gives you any consolation, there is no mass recruitment of private principal engineer

If it gives you any consolation, there is no mass hiring of private companies of central engineers for the traditional branches.

Or the fact that most mechanical engineers have to spend their best days working for some remote plant location far from human civilizations. Some of them may have to work in an environment without air conditioning.

Better to count your blessings and make the most of them rather than wasting your time and energy on scenarios that can / should be and are not.

Hello there,

It is not at all necessary for you to be BTech in CSE to search for MTech in CSE of IIT.

The only requirement is to have to give Gate in CSE.

I have a batch mate who did his BTech at ECE and pursues MTech at CSE from IIT Madras. He has the Gate rank of 102 in Computer Science. He was placed at Myntra as a software development engineer.

There are also more options if you don't want to write GATE to CSE.

If you are in ECE you will get an interdisciplinary branch at IIT Delhi as Information Technology. It is almost similar to CS.

Also some options in Data Science are available in Kharagpur.

IIT Hyderabad has

IIT Hyderabad has a full MTech program in machine learning and artificial intelligence.

IIT Guwahati also has the MTech signal processing and machine learning course.

These courses are almost similar to CS.

At IIT Madras, even if you enter Electrical Engineering, you are free to do Computer Science Engineering courses as your core courses. Hopefully this option is also available in other IITs.

And if you are from ECE or Electrical, all the software giants like Microsoft, Apple, VISA, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, etc. they will be open to all who can code well.

Hope this answers Help.

Greetings,

yes, it can definitely show up for ECE GATE.

But the point is that you have to be clear about why you want to do that. There are many students from different branches like IN, CSE that appear in GATE with ECE or EE.

The problem is not that you will appear or not, the problem is why have you decided this?

What I see is that the target for which we appeared in GATE is PSU or MTech.

The problem with most PSUs is that they ask for the GATE role and our engineering branch to be the same. In the case of MTech also if you want to do in Computer Science then you must have to appear in the role of CS-GATE.

If you

If you want to do MTech in some interdisciplinary course that will include both CS and ECE then you will have good knowledge and great scope in the future.

In case you want to appear in IES, it doesn't matter. You can do any course on BTech and you can appear on any of the flow papers.

So if you are confident that you can use your GATE score to achieve your dreams, go for ECE.

ALL THE BEST .

Yes, of course. I'll give you an example first. I don't know the girl personally, but I have heard of her. There was a girl who did mechanical engineering as a single (maybe because her brother advised her ... !!!) but then decided to do a master's degree in computer science. She went and wrote GATE, got a single digit rank (AIR <10 ... wow ... !!! that's pretty hard work, that too for a mechanical engineer) and ended up at IISc Bangalore.

If you check the GATE app, you can see that people from any stream can turn in the GATE paper for CS. For admission to M. Tech, you must earn a good rank i

Nothing is impossible...

The same question has an answer here:

What is the average salary to expect after completing M.Tech in CSE at IIT?

The salary depends on the specific field of interest in computer science. The hottest areas are Big Data, Mobile Computing, Virtualization, Cloud Computing, Docker, Phone Gap.

They might sound like big words, but it's best to grab basic books (like the fictional series), learn the concepts, and do a little proof of concept.

You definitely need your own laptop with a good amount of hard drive space and memory (500GB / 8 or 16GB of RAM) and install the software. You can make a small mobile application.

You definitely need your own laptop with a good amount of hard drive space and memory (500GB / 8 or 16GB of RAM) and install the software. You can make a small mobile application using HTML5 and Phonegap and run it on an Android mobile.

Interviewers look to this extra effort to determine their best candidates.

The total salary can range from 6 to 10 lakhs.

Yes, you are eligible for the M.Tech TA courses at IIT.
Unfortunately your aggregate percentage is not adequate for M.Tech RA courses.
