 Postgraduate (PG) Programmes

The predecessor of the IIT Roorkee, the University of Roorkee, pioneered postgraduate programmes in engineering and technology, way back in 1955. During the session 2007-2008, 654 students were admitted to the PG programmes and a total of 1356 students were registered in these programmes.

Admission to PG programmes is offered on the basis of GATE score and/or on the basis of the written test and interview. Non Resident Indians ( NRI ) and foreign nationals are also admitted to PG programmes. Sponsored candidates, including those through Quality Improvement Programme (QIP), form another channel for admission to these programmes. IIT Roorkee is the only institution in the country which has special PG programmes in Earthquake Engineering, Water Resources Development & Management, Hydrology, Welding Engineering, Alternate Hydro Energy Systems and Pulp & Paper Engineering.
