The Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), a Deemed to be University and an autonomous body under Department of Space (DOS), was formed in 2007. The institute offers a wide range of under graduate, post graduate, doctoral and post-doctoral programmes. Located in Valiamala, Thiruvananthapuram, Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), admits students to UG courses on the basis of their performance in CBSE’s JEE Main. For the M.Tech courses, the institute invites application and considers valid GATE scores as a very important criteria for admission.

  • The minimum eligibility for admission in B.Tech. and Dual (B.Tech. + M.S./M.Tech.) is a minimum of 75% marks in Class 12th and should have also given JEE Main.
  • The selection in B.Tech and Dual (B.Tech. + M.S./M.Tech.) will be done through the score obtained by the candidate in JEE Advanced and counseling.
  • The candidates who have done B.Tech. in the relevant discipline with a GATE score are eligible to apply for M.Tech./M.S. course.
  • The selection will be done on the basis of  marks obtained in Written Test and Interview, under M.Tech/M.S.
  • B.Tech./B.E./M.E./M.Tech./M.S. pass candidates in the relevant stream are eligible to apply for the respective Ph.D. course.
  • The selection of the candidates for Ph.D. will be done on the basis of the score obtained by the applied candidates in the Written screening test followed by the interview.

Admission :

Simply speaking based on JEE Advanced ranking IIST makes their own ranking of those students who filled their application(usually at the beginning of April), and calls for counselling for the first 2500 students at the end of June or beginning of July, but among them only 140 students got the chance for three branches

Remarks :

Academically the college management is doing great work but for hostel management I think it can work way much better.

Admission: For admission into IITs, students need to qualify for the JEE mains exam and get a good score in the JEE Advanced exam. The eligibility criteria are 10+2 with 75% aggregate in the science stream. For admission into IIST Thiruvananthapuram, eligibility is 10+2 with a minimum of 75% aggregate in the science stream and a valid JEE Mains score. The total seat intake for ECE at IIST is 60. 50 seats at IIT Dharwad for EE and 120 seats for EIE at IIT Dhanbad. 80 seats at IIT Jodhpur for ME. The required cutoff for the institutes is as follows. Institutes Cut off IIT Dharwad 7714 IIT Dhanbad 2755-4464 IIT Jodhpur 6135 IIST Thiruvananthapuram 338 Faculty: A total of 99 faculty members are present at IIT Jodhpur and all are Ph.D. holders. IIT Dhanbad has a highly qualified and strong faculty network of 332 members and 315 of them are Ph.D. holders. IIST has 54 Associate professors, 12 Professors, 26 Assistant professors, and 4 Adjunct Professors. IIT Dharwad also has highly qualified professors. Course fees: The course fees at the institutes are as follows. Colleges IIT Dhanbad IIT Dharwad IIT Jodhpur IIST Trivandrum BTech Fees/year INR 2.28 lakhs INR2.25 lakhs INR70,433 INR68,000 Placement: In the recent placement drive, IIT Dhanbad placed 61.90% of its students from the EIE branch. The highest package offered was INR 13 LPA. Top recruiters were Google, Goldman Sachs, Walmart. In the year 2020, a total of 83% of students were placed from the Mechanical branch at IIT Jodhpur.

● Top Answer By Arushi Anand on 15 Sept 20

Ans. In the year 2020, the ranking of IIST was #33 by NIRF for B.Tech courses. On the other hand, MNNIT Allahabad was ranked #48th by NIRF for B.Tech courses. With excellent teaching staff, IIST is the 1st space institute in Asia to offer programs in space science and technology. Admission: IIST: The candidate must have completed 10+2 with a minimum of 75% from a recognized boardin Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics. A valid score in JEE Advanced is required. The fees for the 1st year inAerospace engineering course is Rs. 96,800. The total intake of the program is 60 seats. MNNIT Allahabad: Candidate must have completed 10+2 in Science stream with a minimum 75% marks. Candidate must have passed the entrance exam, i.e., JEE Main. For ECE 1st year, the feeis Rs 84,666. The general cut off for home state students ranged from 3600 to 7128 and for other state students it is from 4615 to 6752.

Choosing the subject depends on the individual itself. IISR will be really good if the candidate is very much interested in space and technology, as the institute primarily focuses only on space studies. Being a part of the 1st institute in the world to offer complete range of programs in space and technology will be plus point. Late Dr. A. P. J.

Ques. Which will be a better choice, 5 year MTech in IIT Bhubaneswar or 4 year chemical in IIT Hyderabad or aerospace in IIST?

● Top Answer By Nikhil Raj on 14 Aug 20

Ans. M.Tech from IIT Bhubaneswar makes sense only if you are willing to study more on research-based topics of the subject. It is best if one is looking for a career in Teaching, Researching, etc. to further gain knowledge about the subject and not work in MNCs. IIT Hyderabad ranks 8th in the Engineering category by NIRF 2020. The number of students who got placed from the Chemical Engineering department in the 2019 placements was 26. The average salary package offered to students with Chemical Engineering is 15 lakhs per annum. IIST is a space institute under the Department of Space. The students from IIST are recruited as scientists and engineers in the Department of Space facilities and Indian Space Research Organization centers all over India. They receive a starting salary of 10 lakhs per annum. Facilities like Infrastructure, Library, sports facilities, Computer labs, clinics, Data centers in IIST are much better and well equipped than the IITs. Thus it is your choice to opt for what course you are interested in.Read more
