gate score cut off of BITS hydrabad last year ? and tell me more about BITs hydrabad MTech cs placement and which college is better than bits Hyderabad

Shivang Dubey 26th May, 2020

Hey Anant

BITS gives admission to it's M.E. program through 2 process:

  • BITS HD online test
  • GATE/GPAT score

50% seats for BITS HD test students and 50% seats for students through GATE/GPAT.

According to past year records, one needs to score at least ~650 marks in GATE CS for admission.

Note: Application for BITS HD 2020 is still open, follow to know more; BITS HD 2020

BITS Hyderbad has a good placement record, where in previous years the highest package was 14 lakhs per annum and average salary 6 lakhs per annum. Microsoft, Infosys, Wipro, Samsung were also part of the recruitment drive.

If you get BITS Pilani campus, then it would be better and obviously Indian Institute of Technology and IISc are much preferred for M.Techs.

All the best
