B.TECH - ADMISSIONS

What is unique about our B Tech Admission Process?

At NU, it is important for us to find the right students and we also believe that it is important for the students to find the right institution. We believe that the parent/guardian forms the crucial third pillar without whom the process of selection would remain incomplete. Hence we have devised, what we believe is, an apt B Tech admission process that gives an opportunity for the students as well as their parents/guardians to engage with us.

The process of B Tech admission is called Admission Interaction Process or AIP for short. The AIP consists of three parts.

Admission Interaction Process (AIP)

The following will be assessed during the PCI:

  1. English communication skills – written & oral
  2. Interest & hobbies
  3. Degree of self-awareness
  4. Out-of-the-box thinking
  5. Reason for the choice of stream
  6. Behavior and attitude
  7. Overall personality

NU also believes that due weightage and recognition should be given to the academic learning the student has undergone even before taking up B Tech admission. Hence multiple components of academics including 10th class performance, 12th class performance and performance in a recognized engineering entrance tests are considered.

Note: In case the student has decided not to appear in an engineering entrance test, s/he has to undertake the NIIT UNIVERSITY ENGINEERING TEST (NUET).It is a mandatory test for every candidate who has not appeared in JEE-Main/ BITSAT/SAT/NEET/ Any State Engineering Entrance Examination

  • This is an objective type online computer based test.
  • The test duration is 60 minutes.
  • The candidate has to choose Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics for CSE & ECE
  • The candidate has to choose Physics, Chemistry & Biology or Mathematics for BT
