The format of the admission test varies, but a broad outline is as follows.
Part 1: Written Test.
Duration : 45 mins (Please bring your calculators)
Click here to see a sample question paper.
- Basic Maths (12th and UG level: Calculus, linear algebra) [5 questions]
- Signals and Systems [5 questions]
- Random Variables and Random Processes [5 questions]
- Analog Communications [5 questions]
- Electromagnetic Fields [5 questions]
- The above syllabus is only for the Communications group. There are 4 other groups in the EE dept with different syllabi:
- Power Electronics and Power Systems
- Integrated Electronic Circuits
- Computer Technology
- Control and Automation
- The question paper and cut-off marks of BSZ are same as that of EEZ.
- There is no separate question paper for optical communication. It is included in the communication stream.
Part 2: Interview
Those who clear the written test will appear for the interview. Please look through the list of the faculty members in the Communications group at IITD before coming to the interview. Candidates are expected to have a clear idea of:
- a potential advisor, and
- a broad area of research interest compatible with the potential advisor(s).
