Admission to undergraduate programs operates through a counseling process, with selection primarily driven by merit and adherence to the government's reservation policy.
The process begins with candidates completing online registration via the IIST website. Following the conclusion of registrations, IIST compiles an admission list. It's important to note that only those who have registered online are deemed eligible for inclusion in this list.
For BTech and BTech Dual (BTech+MS/MTech) programs, the selection hinges on the candidates' valid JEE Advanced scores and participation in the counseling round.

Admission Process -
There are several ways to join ISRO as a scientist besides JEE Mains or Advanced. The fact is that ISRO directly hires students from IITs and IISC, making it simpler for you to get into ISRO if you attend one of these institutions. You would still be qualified for a position with ISRO if you studied engineering at any other reputable institution. You will need to study hard and gain the necessary information to be as productive as an IITian. To join ISRO as an engineering graduate, you must pass the admission test held by ISRO. ICRB (centralised Recruitment Board) conducts the test, and the GATE exam is also used for recruitment.
If you visit their official website, you may get a better sense of the eligibility standards and other specifications. If you didn't pass the JEE examinations, it's no issue; just get an engineering degree from a reputable university and start preparing for these entrance tests concurrently.
