The predecessor of the IIT Roorkee, the University of Roorkee, pioneered postgraduate programmes in engineering and technology, way back in 1955. During the session 2007-2008, 654 students were admitted to the PG programmes and a total of 1356 students were registered in these programmes.
Admission to PG programmes is offered on the basis of GATE score and/or on the basis of the written test and interview. Non Resident Indians ( NRI ) and foreign nationals are also admitted to PG programmes.
