How to get admission to good BTech Mechanical Engineering Colleges?

Apart from cracking entrances, one needs to have secured more than 90% in their higher secondary level to gain admission to a good college offering the course.

However, following are some of the points to consider when cracking  the entrances with best scores are your only target.

  • Keep your concepts clear in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, GK and English, as questions in such entrances come from these subjects.
  • The entrance examination mainly is filled with MCQ based questions and numeric type questions, so it is important to practice as many samples and previous years question papers as possible. This will help you to get an idea of the paper.
  • The duration of the entrance tests will be 3 hours generally, so practice time based mock papers.
  • Students should follow a strict routine to prepare for these entrances from a year ago.
  • Candidates must maintain separate notebooks for all the sections and must get their hands on the required books, notes and materials to crack the entrances.

Follow the above mentioned tip on cracking entrances, as more than 80% weightage is given to these for getting admission to a good college offering BTech Mechanical Engineering.

When you are done qualifying the entrance round, successfully qualify the counselling and verification rounds to get finally enrolled to course. However, if you really want a good college, do not forget to check the placement rate of the college, method of course delivery, admission system, and the financial aid offered.

Ques. Is NIT Puducherry for ECE better than IIITDM Kancheepuram for mechanical?

● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 25 Oct 21

Ans. Opt for IIITDM Kancheepuram for Mechanical rather than ECE at NIT Puducherry. Here are some reasons as to why I feel so. Faculty: The faculty members at IIITDM Kancheepuram are highly experienced, some of them even have PhDs from the top IITs. At NIT Puducherry the faculty are not that experienced and are also few in number. Infrastructure: IIITDM Kancheepuram’s campus is excellent and appropriate for an educational institution. NIT Puducherry is still functioning from the temporary campus due to construction on the main site. Placements: NIT Puducherry is only known for its placement opportunities provided to its IT students. The rest of the department receives average placement offers. But IIITDM Kancheepuram provides great placements and maintains that record every year. Categories Mechanical Engineering at IIITDM Kancheepuram ECE at NIT Puducherry Course Fee 5.25 lakh 5.49 lakh Placement Percentage 75% 65% Highest CTC 10 LPA 15 LPA Average CTC 7 LPA 4 LPA Recruiting Companies Saint Gobain, L&T, Adobe, Zentrum Labs, etc. Emphasis, Capgemini, L&T, Mu Sigma, etc. Therefore, IIITDM Kancheepuram will be a better choice as here you can excel in your studies, get clear concepts about every topic. You will also receive industry-oriented and research-oriented teachings.Read more

Ques. Which is better for a B.Sc Allahabad University or ECC?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 08 Oct 21

Ans. Both Allahabad University and ECC are very good institutes and choosing one among these two can be a very difficult decision. If you are planning to pursue B.Sc, then there are some points which you should consider before choosing a college. ECC is an autonomous institute and the academic environment and course curriculum in B.Sc (Maths) are much better than Allahabad University.  AU has a lot of politics involved among the students throughout the year and this creates a lot of disturbance in the academic atmosphere.  If you are interested in studying in the Biology field, then choosing Allahabad University will be a better option. You will enjoy a lot of advantages including access to modern laboratories and central library, interaction with research students, and many other things.  If you are interested in taking admission in B.Sc (Maths), then choosing ECC will be the right option and if you are interested in taking admission in B.Sc (Biology), then choosing Allahabad University will be the right option. Read more
