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.
Institute of Technology, Nirma University: The institute was established in 2003 and is located in Ahmedabad.It is spread across 115 of sprawling campus and is accredited by NAAC.
This college offers undergraduate programs in Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering, Chemical engineering, Instrumentation & Control, Electronics & Communication, Computer engineering, Civil engineering and Information Technology.
The departments of Information Technology, Instrumentation & Control and Chemical engineering have an approved intake of 60 students per year while rest of the departments of engineering admit 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 671 5718 50951 2715
Electrical engineering 1980 10766 50858 6795
Chemical engineering 2044 14154 58502 5223
Instrumentation & Control 3176 18143 —— 8987
Electronics & Communication Engg 2742 22208 —— 18417
Computer engineering 773 14723 61863 3380
Civil engineering 1908 141065 1863 7765
Information Technology 1209 15314 61948 5301
* 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.
