M.Tech Admission Process through GATE
The process of applying for admission to IITs is different from applying to NITs, GFTIs, and IIITs. In case of admission to IITs, candidates need to apply first to the IITs and then view and accept admission offers through Common Offer Acceptance Portal (COAP). On the other hand, admission to NITs, GFTIs, and IIITs is conducted through the Centralized Counselling for M.Tech. (CCMT).
Admission to IITs
For admission to M.Tech programmes at IITs, candidates have to apply individually to the concerned IITs through their respective application portals. However, to check the status of admission offers and to make a decision against those offers, the candidate needs to register at COAP.
Common Offer Acceptance Portal (COAP) – The COAP is a common platform for participating IITs to upload admission offers in a common-time window. These offers would be based on the applications submitted to IITs for admission by the candidate and his/her GATE score. However, candidates can access the offers made by IITs only after registering on the COAP platform.
COAP Registration Process
- Candidates must get registered on the platform to view and accept offers
- To register, the candidates need to enter their:
- GATE registration number
- GATE Score
- Date of Birth
- Email Id
- Mobile Number
- Candidates who have qualified in GATE 2018, GATE 2017 or GATE 16 only are eligible to register at COAP.
- Once the COAP registration form is submitted, no editing is allowed.
Admission to NITs, GFTIs, and IIITs: Candidates can apply directly to the institutes through the Centralized Counselling for M.Tech. (CCMT) platform. Eligible candidates who register will be called for counselling and offered seats.
