Institute of Technology, Nirma University- Expected Cutoffs for 2015

Dear Readers,

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

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.
