B. Tech. students of departments other than ME who have completed two years in their program can apply for Minor in Mechanical Engineering. The criteria for the selection in the minor program are given below.

  1. The students admitted to the minors must satisfy the prerequisites criteria for the courses of their choices while opting for the minor.

  2. Criteria for selection: CPI based after the prerequisite criteria are satisfied.

  3. Maximum Number of Students: 20 for each minor for the year

  4. In the event of a tie the department wishes to carry out an interview and the final decision will be made by the DUGC.
