I would like to say admission fee in my college is reliable to pay and also education wise it is good for pursuing Architecture in this college. Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology admissions for B Arch course are usually offered on the basis of NATA entrance exam score or JEE Main Entrance Exam score (Paper 2).Actually I gave NATA based on the score I got seat allotment in this college. The Mode of application is online. IIEST Hostel fee is very much low and also facilities are good and the fee charges around INR 8,000.Overall I can recommend this college to anyone

Once the JEE main entrance test is over we get results and we must actually appear for the JOSAA counselling. IIT, Shibpur cut-off marks for the CS/IT branch is the most highest and the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology admission is possible only through JOSAA counselling and no other way.

I applied for JEE Main entrance exam for which the application starts from the month of December when the results were declared I was scared if I could get B.Tech seat is Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology then based on the score obtained in the exam IIEST admissions to B.Tech were given. It is compulsory to apply for counselling and on basis of counselling we will be selected for further process where vacancies in the college and number of applications will matter. Seats will differ for every course and program students are advised to apply as soon as the admission forms are released to get advanced with the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology admissions.
