    Admission to NIT Trichy is via the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main. For IIT Madras, students have to write the JEE Advanced in addition to JEE Main. Several of the private institutions conduct their own exams, such as SRMJEE, VITEEE and AEEE. Tamil Nadu does not conduct an entrance exam for admission to state colleges. Students directly join Tamil Nadu engineering counselling on the basis of their Class 12 board exam results.
