I have got 19 033 rank and getting Mechanical at Kattankulathur campus. Is there any chance of getting IT or if possible CS at the same campus?
The department change rules have been changed in 2015 and it has made the process a little easier. Earlier these were the rules:
- Person should score CGPA >8.5 at the end of first two semesters without any backlog or Disciplinary Committee action against him/her.
- Person should be in top 10% of her/his department.
- The strength of the department should not change by 10%.
A person can fill 10 choices for a department change.
So even if you score more than 8.5, but there are 4 more people (taking you’re in a department like Biotech or HSS where the number of people is less, say 40 in this case) who scored more than you then you won’t be able to change your department.
But this rule has been revised to remove the top 10% criteria. This has helped a lot of people. Following are the latest DepC statistics.
