Petroleum varsity admissions to be based on IIT-JEE, GATE exams

Visakhapatnam: Admissions to the B.Tech and M.Tech courses offered by the Indian Institute of Petroleum would be based on the IIT-JEE and GATE scores respectively, said AU College of Engineering (AUCE) principal Ch Ramachandra Murthy on Wednesday. Around 120 students are expected to join the first B.Tech batch that would pass out in 2020, he added.
Speaking on the role that would be played by the AUCE, the principal said, “There is a misconception that the Delta Studies Centre will play the role of the facilitator and host between the industry and the institute to promote research activities from 2021.” He said the curriculum has been approved and the permanent campus would come up at Sabbavaram.
