What is unique about our BTech Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) 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 Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) admission is called Admission Interaction Process or AIP for short. The AIP consists of three parts.
Admission Interaction Process (AIP)
Questionnaire stating student's aspirations and reasons for choosing Computer Science & Engineering as a career option.
The applicant will appear for NUET which is conducted by NU for admission to its Technology Programmes. It consists of questions drawn from Physics/ Chemistry/ Mathematics and/or Biology.
The applicants will undergo the Personal Counselling Interaction (PCI) 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 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
