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.
Marwadi Engineering College: The institute was established in 2009 and is located in Rajkot district. The college is approved by AICTE and is affiliated to Gujarat Technological University.
This college offers undergraduate programs in Automobile engineering, Mechanical engineering, Civil engineering, Computer engineering, Information Technology, Electronics & Communication engineering, Environmental Science & Engineering, Instrumentation & Control and Electrical engineering. Some of the departments of engineering have separate shifts for the students.
The departments of Civil engineering, Computer engineering, Mechanical engineering and Electrical engineering have an approved intake of 120 students per year while rest of the departments of engineering admit 60 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 37659 60784 —— 60666
*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.
