Joint Admission Test for MSc (JAM) 2017 @ IITs

Official Notification | Joint Admission Test for MSc (JAM) 2017 @ IITs: The Master of Science and other post-B.Sc. programmes at the IITs offer high quality post-graduate education in respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The current pace of advance­ment of technology needs a coherent back up of ba­sic science education and research. The vibrant aca­demic ambience and research infrastructure of the IITs motivate the students to pursue R&D careers in fron­tier areas of basic sciences as well as interdiscipli­nary areas of science and technology.

From the Academic Session 2004-2005, Indian Insti­tutes of Technology have started conducting a Joint Admission Test to M.Sc. (JAM) for admission to M.Sc. and other post-B.Sc. programmes at the IITs. The main objective of JAM is to revive and consoli­date ‘Science’ as a career option for bright students from across the country and provide them a single step opportunity for admission to some of the postgraduate programmes offered at the IITs. In due course, JAM is also expected to become a benchmark for normal­izing undergraduate level science education in the country.
