Dear Sohail Imtiyaj Khan,

Unfortunately, IIT Bombay does not offer any lateral entry programme for B.Tech. IIT Bombay admissions to the B.Tech programme are made through the Joint Entrance Examination Advanced (JEE Advanced) exam. However, IIT Bombay does offer a dual degree (B.Tech + M.Tech) programme in some departments, and students who have completed a diploma in engineering from a recognised institute are eligible to apply for admission to the second year of the dual degree program through the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) exam.
