Dear Readers,

We have started with this series of articles on reputed engineering colleges in the state of Gujarat. All your queries regarding various colleges, the different branches of engineering that they offer and the closing ranks for the branches of your choice, etc. will be answered in this series.

This year, admissions to engineering courses in various universities of Gujarat would be done on the basis of candidates’ performance in the JEE Main 2015. Till last year, these admissions were done on the basis of performance in the GUJCET. In this series of article, we take a look at last years’ cutoffs (maximum ranks) for admissions to these courses. Do note that these cutoffs are on the basis of the GUJCET. These articles would give you a fair idea of the likely selection requirements for these courses this year.

Overview of the GUJCET:

The Gujarat Common Entrance Test, which is popularly known as GUJCET, was conducted for entry to various professional degree courses in the state of Gujarat. Several universities of Gujarat used to give admission to students in courses related to medicine, engineering, dentistry and pharmacy on the basis of their performance in this exam. The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board, Gandhinagar conducted the GUJCET every year.

Engineering aspirants taking the GUJCET needed to answer a total of 120 questions on Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The question paper was available in English, Hindi and Gujarati. The 180-minute examination consisted of multiple-choice questions only. Each correct answer was worth one mark and there was no negative marking.

Government College of Engineering, Dahod: The institute was established in 2004 and is under the Commiserate of Technical Education, Gandhinagar. The college is approved by AICTE and is affiliated to Gujarat Technological University. The college is located in 17 acres of picturesque campus.

This college offers undergraduate programs in Mechanical engineering, Civil engineering, Electrical engineering, Computer engineering and Electronics & Communication engineering.

While the departments of Computer engineering and Electronics & Communication engineering admit 60 students per year, rest of the departments of engineering have an approved intake of 120 students every year.

Last year, the maximum ranks (closing ranks) for various courses at this college were as follows:

Course                                                            Open           SC              ST          SEBC

Mechanical engineering                               19998        48406        43469      23571

Civil engineering                                           23424        52070       42029      34562

Computer engineering                                 24935        56741        53620      38397

Electrical engineering                                   25070       45334        45383       32618

Electronics&Communication engineering   38810        55875        53718       56440

*SEBC- Socially and Educationally Backward Classes

This list of ranks is expected to be indicative of the likely cutoffs for admissions to the various courses at this college this year.
