  • What is unique about our BTech BioTechnology (BT) 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 admission process that gives an opportunity for the students as well as their parents/guardians to engage with us.

    The process of BTech BioTechnology (BT) admission is called Admission Interaction Process or AIP for short. The AIP consists of three parts.

    Admission Interaction Process (AIP)

    1. Questionnaire stating student's aspirations and reasons for choosing Computer Science & Engineering as a career option.
    2. The applicant will appear for NUAT which is conducted by NU for admission to its Technology Programmes.
    3. The applicants will undergo the Student Personal Interaction (SPI) either face-to-face or through video conferencing.

    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 class X performance, class XII 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 APTITUDE TEST (NUAT). 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 90 minutes.

    NU offers Early Admissions to students appearing for their Class XII Board Examinations in 2022 as also to those who have taken their Class XII Board examination not earlier than March 2020. The EAD process is particularly suitable for those who are clear about pursuing engineering/management studies or/and multidisciplinary curriculum leading to post-graduate research career or those willing to set up their own start-up ventures after graduation.  This is also beneficial to NU to spread out its admission process since it gives more time for in-depth interaction with the Applicants which is a vital part of the NU selection process.

There are limited seats for which admission is being granted under the Early Admission Mode. The admission will be granted on a first come first served basis to only those Applicants who meet all the admission criteria.
