NIT M.Sc. Entrance Exams:


The well-established NITs like NIT Calicut, Trichy and Warangal hold their own M.Sc. Entrance Exams. Some of these exams are to fill vacant seats while others are for admission to specialized M.Sc. programmes.



NIT Trichy:


For M.Sc. Computer Science, Physics and Chemistry, NIT Trichy conducts an entrance exam. The entrance test for all the M.Sc. programmes will be conducted in June month (from 10.30 a.m. to 12.00 p.m.) at NIT Tiruchirappalli itself. The admit cards for the exam are uploaded separately.



NIT Warangal:


Candidates who are looking for the NIT Warangal M.Sc. Admission in masters programmes for Mathematics, Engineering Physics [M.Sc. Tech.] and Chemistry can apply through an entrance exam held by NIT Warangal.

Admissions into various M.Sc. programs at NITW for 2018 academic year will be based on JAM 2018 test being conducted by IITB. Hence the aspirants for M.Sc. program at NITW are required to register and take part in JAM 2019 for M.Sc. admissions.



NIT Durgapur:


The Institute offers three-year (six-semester) full-time programme in Master of Computer Application (MCA). Admission to MCA programme is made through NIT MCA Common Entrance Test (NIMCET).



NIT Sikkim:


The seats remaining vacant after CCMN allotment are filled through an entrance exam. This exam is called Institution Admission Test (IAT). The process to apply for IAT is given on the official website.

Best NIT for M.Sc. Mathematics:


NITs are not the most preferred places for M.Sc. Mathematics. Mathematics Departments in the NIT colleges lag somewhat in comparison to the other engineering branches. But if you are still interested in NIT M.Sc. courses for Maths. Here goes the list:


NIT Warangal


NIT Trichy



We’d rather suggest you apply for ISI, Kolkata or IISERs for M.Sc. mathematics where you can get better learning of advanced role of statistics and mathematics in solving critical problems. Other recommended colleges are TIFR, CMI, Chennai.



We’ve put together an exhaustive list to help make the decision easier for all aspiring candidates. Although NITs have the same value as a new set up IIT; the brand value, campus life and placements of these NITs are far superior. The older and more established NITs like those in Surathkal, Trichy, Warangal, and Calicut are a lot better than the most of the IITs. We hope you won’t just go behind the prestigious IIT “tag”, but the overall career aspect that an institute offers.
