IITs and NITs Cut Off for MTech in Geotechnical Engineering

IITs and NITs are the premier institutes of the Country, so attract students around the globe. In this blog, I will let you know the cutoff score of MTech Geotechnical Engineering in various IITs and NITs. These cut off scores will give the aspirants an insight into last year’s M.Tech admissions in those institutes.

Geotechnical Engineering is compromises of many of the branches like foundation engineering, earthquake engineering, soil dynamics, geo-environmental engineering, etc. The field is very vast and most people restrain it to foundation engineering, which is not the truth.


The scope of M.Tech. Geotechnical is vast. You could opt for a PhD if you want to get into academics or Research and Development (R&D). You can happen to be a tunnel geotechnical engineer, a Marine geotechnical engineer, a Geotechnical earthquake engineer or work as a consultant for multiple projects.


M.Tech. Geotechnical Engineering in IITs


Getting a seat in IIT is a dream for many candidates around there. IITs and NITs have M.Tech. Geotechnical Engineering in various forms, such as foundation engineering, geo-environmental engineering, etc


Depending upon the availability of data our experts compared the cutoffs(Score or Normalized Marks) of 9 IITs, namely IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Kanpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, IIT Dhanbad, IIT Palakkad, IIT Hyderabad and IIT Bhubaneswar.


The list is a mix of Old and New IITs, which is to give a better idea about the whole scenario.


Cutoff


The below table shows the score or normalized mark of the last candidate who gets admitted into that respective IIT(in Geotechnical Engineering Specialization).


The last general category candidate who gets admitted to IIT Bombay Geotechnical Engineering had a GATE 2019 score of 678 (and a GATE 2020 score of 774).

Note: These are previous years last candidate score/cutoffs sources from different places. Kindly check with the official website for confirmation, and use this only as an indication.


M.Tech. Geotechnical Engineering in NITs


18 NITs out of 31 NITs in India have M.Tech. Geotechnical Engineering program. These 18 NITs are NIT Jalandhar, NIT Bhopal, NIT Allahabad, NIT Agartala, NIT Calicut, NIT Durgapur, NIT Hamirpur, NIT Surathkal, NIT Patna, NIT Jamshedpur, NIT Kurukshetra, NIT Rourkela,, NIT Silchar, NIT Srinagar, NIT Tiruchirappalli, NIT Warangal, NIT Nagpur and NIT Andhra Pradesh.


The list is a mix of Old and New NITs, which is to give a better idea about the whole scenario which is happening around the NIT M.Tech. admission.


Cutoff


The below table shows the score of the last candidate who gets admitted into that respective NIT(in Geotechnical Engineering Specialization).


The last general category candidate who gets admitted to NIT Surathkal Geotechnical Engineering had a GATE 2019 score of 570.

Note: This is the cut-off list for NITs with Geotechnical Engineering Specialization as per Special Round -1 2020. There was one more round after it, which you can find the list on the CCMT Official website. This will give you an idea of what to expect. It can vary from this, so just use this as an indicator


I'll come soon with another informative and curated blog. Goodbye till then.

All the very best for your admissions.
