Additionally, the institute admitted 12 international students from six countries into its programs. This year’s academic diversity is remarkable, with 58% of students coming from non-engineering backgrounds, representing a wide array of disciplines such as Sciences, Humanities, Arts, Commerce, Medical (MBBS), and Chartered Accountancy.
