M.Tech in Atmospheric-Oceanic Science & Technology

Check here for details: Course of study: CAS, IIT Delhi

  1. The M.Tech. Programme in Atmospheric-Oceanic Science & Technology is designed to train students from diverse backgrounds in the exciting field of Weather and Climate. The courses are also oriented to help the graduate students get employed in government organizations, public and private sectors or continue in a doctoral programme within the country and abroad.
  2. There are 11 core courses including three bridge courses and a Major Project. In addition to these core courses, there are a number of electives which include all State-of- the-art topics in atmospheric and oceanic sciences.
  3. Some special modules for one credit are also floated every semester which are usually timed with the visits of distinguished scientists from inside the country and abroad.
  4. In order to complete the M.Tech. programmes in Atmospheric-Oceanic Science & Technology, students need to earn 54 credits from among these courses.
  5. Major projects provide an opportunity to students to work on State-of-art- research topics in diverse areas of Weather, Climate and Atmospheric transport of pollutants.

Admissions to the MTech programme

  1. The admissions to the MTech programme are conducted once a year. Usually, the call for applications is advertised by IIT Delhi in March, and the candidates should apply through the online application portal.
  2. We offer assistantships for full-time students admitted into the MTech programme.
  3. The admissions to these full-time seats are made based on GATE score. The GATE scores in Engineering Sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics, Geology & Geophysics, Agricultural Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Production and Industrial Engineering, Mining Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, and Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering qualify for admission to the MTech in Atmospheric Oceanic Science & Technology.
  4. Those who qualify with other engineering subjects are also eligible to apply for our MTech programme, provided they have at least one year of relevant work experience in the field.
  5. If the qualifying degree is M.Sc., then the candidates must have both Physics and Mathematics studied at the B.Sc. level.
  6. The requirement of GATE is waived for those who have graduated (with integrated B.Sc.-M.Sc./integrated BS-MS/B.Tech) from a Centrally Funded Technical Institute (CFTI) with a CGPA of 8.0 or above.
  7. In addition to the assistantship seats, we admit sponsored full-time and part-time students with relevant work experience.
  8. Sponsored full-time and part-time students do not require GATE qualification and are admitted based on performance in the interview conducted by the Centre Research Committee.
  9. The part-time/sponsored full-time students should also apply through the online application portal.
  10. Meeting the other admission criteria specified by the institute, such as the minimum score in the qualifying degree and subject requirements is necessary for admission.
