Eligibility Criteria

  • The minimum qualification for admission to the 3 Year ICD Programme is Matric pass(Passin English, Mathematics and Science is compulsory) from a State Education Board / CBSE / ICSE / National Open School or an equivalent examination recognized / approved by MHRD, Government of India. Those who are appearing in matriculation examination may also apply subject to producing the result at the time of admission.
  • For admission to Lateral Entry ICD (2nd year) in addition to the matric pass as above, must have passed full time 2 years ITI/Certificate/10+2 (vocational) in relevant trade with 50% marks(45% for reserved categories) from Govt./Semi Govt Institute along with 2 years industrial experience from Govt./Semi Govt. and Private Industry of repute.

Duration: The duration of the ICD programme is 3 years, However, in case a student is willing to exit after successfully completing 2 years in the prescribed course of study with required credits, he/she will be awarded certificate in the respective course of ICD programme. He/ She will be allowed to exit only after completing all the formalities as per the norms of institute.

Seat Intake

Last Year Seat Intake are given below.

# It is clearly mentioned that 50% of the students admitted in ICD in Civil Engineering fulfilling the requisite criteria will be promted to 2 nd year of B.E.(4 Yr) on the basis of all India Entrance Test(SET conducted by SLIET, Longowal only in case B.E.course in Civil Engineering is being run at that time. No vertical promotion of ICD(civil Engineering) will be done in case the course (B.E. Civil Engineering) is not available in corresponding year.
