Engineering Admissions

This is probably the one part of engineering nobody looks forward to. The grueling, tiresome admission process probably confuses even the men who came up with it. Of course, we here at Stupidsid have simplified it for you.


Now, the whole procedure is under a central system called CAP (Central Admission Process). Not exactly ‘whole’, considering that the following colleges are currently NOT under CAP; they have their own admission procedure :-

  • Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management and Engineering (NMIMS University)
  • Symbiosis Institute of Technology, Pune (Symbiosis International University)
  • Army Institute of Technology, Pune (Affiliated to Pune University)
  • BVDU College of Engineering, Pune (Bharati Vidyapeeth University)

NOTE: Autonomous Colleges like ICT, VJTI, COEP, SGGS, WCE, SPCE having their own admission process have been clubbed into the CAP from the year 2014-15

Nearly all the Engineering Colleges in Delhi come under the IP University (IPU) which apparently has a pretty straight forward admission procedure. However, there are a couple of highly renowned colleges (and dozens of not-at-all renowned institutes) which do not fall under the ambit of the IPU and follow separate admission procedures.

Most of the engineering colleges in Ahmedabad & Gandhinagar are affiliated to Gujarat Technological University (GTU). Admission to all the engineering & pharmacy colleges under GTU are centralised and conducted online by Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC).

Private colleges like DA-IICT & CEPT are not under GTU and hence, they conduct their admissions individually. Nirma University & PDPU are also not under GTU but 50% of their seats are filled by ACPC while the remaining all India seats are filled by respective institutes.

Admissions to all the professional courses in Andhra Pradesh are done on the basis of EAMCET score. Colleges under JNTU & Osamnia University (OU) follow a common, centralised process for admitting students. Major part of this process was conducted online for the years prior to 2012. But in 2012, it was carried out offline via physical counselling.

This year, however, it is expected that entire counseling process will be held online once again, as they have made it mandatory to register for EAMCET online at www.apeamcet.org
