IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) Kanpur has initiated their admission procedure for 2023 without the GATE score for several eMasters courses, the last date of application being May 12. The application form for the July 2023 intake is available on their website, which is emasters.iitk.ac.in.

Candidates do not require a GATE score for admission in these courses and will have the flexibility to pursue them between 1 to 3 years.
The courses each have 12 modules and 60 credits and are industry-focused with real-world problems and hence scope for students to be updated with the latest market trends.

IIT Kanpur also gives formal Senate-approved degrees at the convocation to successful candidates.
