Department Change

Every engineering aspirant has a dream of clearing JEE and getting admission into IITs. However, many students are not able to get their desired branch and hence, wish to get a department change at the end of their first year. The main criteria for department change is to score a CGPA greater than 8.5. Moreover, since the number of students entering a certain department is limited and the competition is tough, a student must score a high enough CGPA to get his department changed.
