About M.Tech Nuclear Technology Course
Master of technology in Nuclear Technology is a two years post graduate course which trains students about the concepts such as fusion, nuclear fusion, design processing, construction management of nuclear reactors and invention of nuclear materials. Nano technology is based on fundamental principles of mathematics and physics that describe transport of neutrons and gamma rays and also nuclear interactions.
Minimum eligibility required to apply for admission to the M.Tech Nuclear Technology Course is to qualify in B.E/ B.Tech in Mechanical/ Electrical/ Electronics/ Chemical/ Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Electronic and Instrumentation Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering (or) B.Sc. Physics from a recognized university with minimum aggregate score of 60%.
Admission process may vary from institute to institute. Generally, most of the institutes offer admission to the M.Tech Nuclear Technology Course based on candidate's performance in Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering GATE. Some reputed institutes/ colleges/ universities may conduct their own entrance examinations.
