    Dear Student,

    There is no subject for M.Tech ECE in APSET entrance exam. However, do not need to worry as you can apply for UGC NET as an alternative option. UGC NET is a national level exam conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA) on behalf of the University Grants Commission in order to shortlist the candidates for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and Assistant Professor in Indian universities and colleges.

    The UGC NET for June session is over, however, you can apply for the next session of UGC NET which will be conducted around December (may be delayed this year due to pandemic). The exam is conducted twice a year.

    To learn about the syllabus, chapter and topics included, check UGC NET ECE Syllabus.
