Great dreams of dreamers are always transcended”
APJ Abdul Kalam
Indian Institute of Technology, A coveted dream of every student.
I am taking an opportunity to converse with such students through this article. Here goes;You have put efforts for JEE. You have got a good rank. Now, you are busy in putting applications. This article will simplify your work;
Where Can I find out the information related to IIT’s cut off ?
Home page http://jeeadv.iitb.ac.in/
. You should visit each and every link on this page Instead of searching on any other website.
I have an interest in core subjects , Physics , Chemistry and mathematics ?
Yes , you can go for such courses in IITs , NITS , IIITS and many other Government and private institutes which are approved by UGC and AICTE. BARC , TIFR are some good institutes.
I want to appear for IES examination in future , which branch I can select ?
Mechanical , Civil , Electrical and Electronics and Telecommunication. IES examination is conducted for these branches. Hence it is quite easy for Engineers of these fields to clear these exams.
How Should I prepare myself for my engineer course ?
Engineering course is the heavy course. In first semester , you will find it bit heavy. Later , you will manage. You need to start your preparation as early as possible. Start reading the reference books and visit the NPTEL websites , Coursera , Udacity and edX. There you will find some courses. You can start studying using those courses.
You will need to do some practical assignment in your Engineering. By solving the problem sheets available in Online courses. You can prepare yourself for your coursework assignment and projects.
I dream to work in NASA , How would that be possible ?
After working in NASA for a few years I want to come back to India ?
Please go for mechanical or Aerospace Engineering. If you haven’t got Aerospace. Please look for the Mechnical or Instrumentation. Then you can go for MS in US, Russia. You can get to work in NASA , for example : go through the profile of Aditya Gupte , PhD candidate at IIT Bombay.
A person who has worked in NASA can join IITs in India and become a researcher , professor and he can go for a start-up in IIT E-cell. He can also work in DRDO or ISRO., Vikram Sarabhai Space research centre.He can be the part of top management in India. This way he can change the face of Indian Industrial and technology development. I have come across many such scientists in IIT Bombay. One of them is right now doing PhD in AeroSpace Engineering department.
I haven’t got admission in IIT for B-Tech , what should I do ?
Please do not worry. It is not an institute which makes you great. It is you and your efforts, determination and dedication.
There are many top NITS , IIITs , government and private institutes approved by UGC/AICTE. You can go there.
From the second year of your engineering start to prepare for GATE examination.If possible plan to do your Mtech from IIT. GATE score is also useful for getting jobs in IIT.
Should I apply for BITs ?
BITS is the among best engineering institutes. If you appear for BIT SAT , then you can go for BITs Pilani. It is good practice to give similar entrance exam along with JEE.
What are some good local engineering colleges ?
You can find out this on internet based on the region. But still you need to go and see the colleges in your local area. For example , in Mumbai VJTI , SPCE , DJ Sanghavi , TSEC ,
KJ Somaiya Vidyavihar these are good engineering colleges.
If not the above then which colleges
Please see whether they give admission based on the JEE and if not;
They are recognised by UGC and AICTE
