DASA Scheme 2017 – 18 Details

6 July 2017

DASA has declared Second Round Cut-off. The summarized comparison of 2nd Round against 1st Round is on this link

30 June 2017

DASA have declared the results much before the time this year. We really need to appreciate VNIT Coordinator's efforts in this matter for smooth management of the scheme this year. I would suggest that all those who feel good about it to express their appreciation and feelings, especially on Twitter, tagging HRD ministry, VNIT and the person who was most helpful to you. CIWG applicants may also thank HRD Mininstry (@HRDMinistry) and  @PrakashJavdekar for timely resolution of the fee. You may also like or re-tweet my tweet on this ( handle @rajktyagi or search #DASA).

I am receiving many queries if the cut-off can drop by X point or Y point in 2nd/3rd Round. All such candidates are urged to refer to last year's trend/ cut-off drop at this link.

Ranking of Engineering Institutes Revealed !

Ranking of NITs Revealed: Ranking of NITs by JEE-Main Candidates

All NITs/IIITs are listed in the order of preference based on JEE-Main 2016 cut-offs ranking. This ranking of engineering colleges (admission thru JEE-Main) is pretty reliable (certainly better than ranking by private publishers since they show preference by real JEE-Main toppers).

Single IIT, NIT Entrance Exam from 2017 ?

Panel suggests single IIT, NIT entrance exam, aptitude test

HRD Ministry maintains there will be no change in JEE format for 2016

By: Express News Service | New Delhi | Published:November 8, 2015 2:35 am

Three years after the UPA 2 government made sweeping changes to the admission process at top engineering institutes of the country, an expert panel appointed by its successor government has recommended another set of changes, including a single entrance examination for both IITs and NITs, no weightage to school board marks, and a compulsory aptitude test.

The committee, headed by academic Ashok Mishra, has suggested that JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) should be merged into a single entrance exam, conducted by the IITs and intended to test a candidate’s knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics. Currently, JEE (Main), meant for admission to the NITs, is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), and JEE (Advanced) by the IITs.

Is IIIT-H better than IITs in computer science?

“Is IIIT-H better than IITs in computer science?is the most debated question in discussions whether online and off-line, especially when IIIT-H is in the news for some recognition or its students winning any national/ international coding contest. The answer, however, eludes those seeking for one desperately.

Before we try to compare IIIT-Hyd with other institutes, let’s first note some of the highlights of IIIT-Hyd which is not matched by its competitors in the field:

  • Autonomous university set up as a not-for-profit Public Private Partnership (N-PPP) model
  • Experienced faculty– Most number of PhD faculty in India in a CSE institute (total of 60+ faculty with PhDs)
  • Research oriented academics:   Offers research-led curricula even for undergraduate programs. As a result, students get to do a large number of projects and acquire deep research orientation and innovative mindset. If interested in doing MS or PhD in CSE field, best place to be.
  • Very Strong Coding Culture: IIIT-Hyd students regularly shine in coding contests. The dominating portion of the most courses are coding assignments + lab tests as well as a few of them being totally based on programming & programming workshops (even for 1st year)

Only institute to have appeared four times in ACM-ICPC World Contest and securing highest ranking by any India institute. Almost every year there is a team from IIIT Hyderabad that qualifies for the ACM ICPC World Finals. Once there were two teams which qualified in a single year! IIIT Hyderabad won ACM ICPC South Asia regionals in consecutive years (Two other IIIT teams ranked 6th and 7th)

  • Highly Ranked on Programming sites: There are many high ranked students solving problems on SPOJ and TopCoder programming sites. For many years, IIIT-Hyd was ranked no. 1 globally on SPOJ programming site
  • Google Summer of Code. A total of 29 IIIT-Hyd students were selected in 2013 (second highest globally, top in India) to contribute towards open source assignments by Google.
  • DataQuest Ranks IIIT-Hyd at 1st for Placement. 100% Placement. Av. salary for CSE: Rs 9.5 LPA. Off-shore: in Excess of $120K. Every year there are some 8-10 people hired by Google and Facebook.
  • World class infrastructure
  • Tech-Hub/Incubator: Houses India’s biggest Tech start-up Incubator
  • Situated in the metro city of Hyderabad in a posh locality amongst IT biggies. Hyderabad is an emerging hub for IT start-ups and home for IT biggies (latest entrant Amazon, Facebook, TCS)  because it offers 3 times of Bangalore’s instrstructure at one third cost. Hyderabad already is home for all major IT biggies like TCS, Wipro, Tech Mahindra, Accenture, Infosys, IBM, Google, Yahoo, iGate.
  • Recommended as a premier research institution in India by the US  National Science Foundation (NSF) for US graduate students to take up research fellowships and short-term research programs.
