Centralized Counseling for M.Tech. / M.Arch./ M.Plan./M.Des. admissions (CCMT2017) is an on-line admission process for all National Institutes of Technologies (NITs) and several other Centrally Funded Technical Institutes viz. IIITM Gwalior, PDPM IIITDM Jabalpur, SLIET Longowal, NIFFT Ranchi, SPA Vijayawada, IIIT Allahabad, Central University of Rajasthan, Institute of Technology, Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur, IIEST Shibpur, PEC University of Technology, Chandigarh and IIITD&M Kancheepuram. These are the premier institutions of the country, under the aegis of Ministry of HRD, Government of India, for imparting world class technical educaton. CCMT will coordinate admissions to PG programmes in Engineering, Technology, Architecture, Planning and Design in respect of above mentioned Institutes. As decided by the Core Committee, Counselling for centralized admission to postgraduate programs in all these institutes will be starting from 2nd week of April 2017.
Centralized Counseling for M.Tech./ M.Arch./ M.Plan./M.Des. (CCMT) is a convenient platform for the students to apply for M.Tech./ M.Arch./ M.Plan./M.Des. programmes, based on their GATE score of years 2016 and 2017, in 30 NITs and reputed Centrally Funded Technical Institutions namely Central University of Rajasthan,Institute of Technology Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur,ABV-IIITM Gwalior, IIITDM Jabalpur, IIIT Allahabad, Sant Longowal Institute of Engineering and Technology (SLIET) Longowal, Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) Shibpur, National Institute of Foundry and Forge Technology (NIFFT) Ranchi, School of Planning and Architecture (SPA) Vijayawada, PEC University of Technology, Chandigarh and IIITD&M Kancheepuram. This centralized system has replaced the older system, wherein students had to apply individually to various Institutes and go to every Institute for appearing in interview/counseling. The older system caused a lot of difficulties to students such as filling multiple applications, travelling long distances to various Institutes across the country and missing some Institutes due to overlapping admission dates. Centralized counseling has provided a system wherein the students can fill one online application form from their homes and apply to all programmes in all the participating institutions to which they are eligible. The overall convenience of students has been enormously increased due to centralized counseling.
