National Institute of Technology- Trichy (NIT-T) admitted about 52 foreign candidates on July 18, 2012 under the DASA (Direct Admission of Students from Abroad) Scheme. In total 314 students have been enrolled to the institute this year. Most of the students are from UAE such as Dubai and Sharjah and also from Singapore and Malaysia.
The institute conducted online counseling for BTech and MTech courses where candidates could fill in their choices online. The NIT was coordinated by NIT Rourkela this year for degree programs as per the CCMT (Centralized Counseling) 2012. The 20 top NITs in India were linked through the CCMT though all 30 NITs admitted students on the basis of GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) Results released in February this year.
The institute conducted third round of counseling in which 188 out of 240 students were admitted from Indian institutes on July 18, 2012. The institute has 814 seats for UG programs spread across 9 courses and it was expected that nearly 40 students might change their mind at last minute and opt out for other institutes or courses. The last round will invite all students to report at the respective NITs to complete the admission process.
The first phase of counseling was held between June 28 and July 2, 2012. The students who could not get admission to the courses of their choice can now try in second and third rounds. In the mean time, students who are facing difficulty in online choice filling can contact the help desks available across the country.
