M.Tech Admission Procedure through GATE 2018
The admission to M.Tech programmes will be a two-step procedure for GATE candidates. They will have to apply to individual IITs through their respective portals and also register to Common Offer Acceptance Portal (COAP) to accept admission offers. In case, a candidate applies in IITs and not in COAP, then his or her admission will not be considered. It is necessary for candidates to apply at both places to avail offers for admission. However, for admission in NITs, GFTIs and IIITs, a candidate will have to apply directly through Centralised Counselling for M.Tech (CCMT). Only those candidates who will register themselves will be called for counselling on the basis of their GATE scores and eligibility.
What does Common Offer Acceptance Portal (COAP) means?
COAP is a common platform for participating IITs to upload admission offers in a common-time window. These offers will be based on the applications submitted by candidates to IITs and GATE scores. It is important to note that candidates can access these offers made by IITs only after registering on COAP platform. Candidates must have qualified GATE 2018, GATE 2017 or GATE 2016 to be eligible to register for COAP. After registering on COAP, no modification will be allowed.
