The admissions in Master of Engineering (ME) and Master of Pharmacy (M.Pharm) courses will be held from August 25 to September 7. The admissions will be conducted by the admission committee of the Gujarat Technological University (GTU).
There are 2,800 M.Pharm seats in the state for which 3,033 students have applied. Of these, 1,487 students have cleared the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE).
The admission in ME courses will be conducted from August 29 to September 7. There are 3,000 seats and 6,000 students have applied. Of these, only 700 students have cleared GATE. While officials say that colleges are not likely to face any problem with admission in ME courses, there is a lot of trouble expected in filling M.Pharm seats. It may be extremely difficult to fill the M.Pharm seats as the colleges running pharmacy undergraduate courses have been left high and dry with one two third of the total seats remaining vacant.
Of the 6,500 seats, 4,300 seats are vacant. This is a huge void to fill. The apathy and disinterest towards bachelor of pharmacy courses is expected to spill over onto the postgraduate pharmacy courses as well, said an official.
Engg diploma students will not be restricted by their stream:
Starting this year, diploma engineering students will be able to take admission in degree engineering courses in a branch other than in which they have pursued the diploma studies. Earlier if a student had completed diploma in civil engineering, he or she was eligible to take admission only in civil engineering degree course. 10,500 seats in engineering and pharmacy colleges have remained vacant this year. Of these, 4,300 seats in engineering and 5,919 seats in pharmacy courses were not filled.
