The directorate of technical education on Wednesday released the prospectus online to enable direct admission to second year professional degree courses for 2016-17. Direct admissions give pharmacy and engineering diploma holders a second chance at getting admitted to the respective degree courses. There are close to 270 second year engineering and pharmacy seats on offer.
The admissions will take place based on the diploma final exam scores of the candidates.
Civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, electronic and telecommunication engineering, electronic and communication engineering, computer engineering, mining engineering, and information technology have 204 seats up for grabs. Additionally, aspirants can take a shot at the 42 seats in the management quota as well.
BSc degree holders will be able to apply for the seats. In the streams of electrical and electronic engineering, electronic and telecommunication engineering, computer engineering and information technology, if any seats are left unfilled by eligible diploma holders, eligible BSc degree holders will be considered for the vacancies.
In the pharmacy stream, 24 seats are on offer for students for direct second year admissions, including three management quota seats.
Any direct admission seats that have remained vacant last year will also be filled during the admission process.
To be eligible for the engineering seats, the candidates should have passed the diploma in engineering in the relevant branch with minimum of 45% (40% in case of SC/ST/OBC) or should be a bachelor of science with a minimum of 45% (40% in case of SC/ST/OBC). In case of the diploma in pharmacy course, similar final year diploma scores are expected from candidates to be eligible.
The admission form will have to be downloaded by students from the directorate of technical education website.
