n DTE fails to include course for entrance test to be held on May 26
M Tech (Drugs and Pharmaceuticals) aspirants are a worried lot these days as the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) has failed to include this course for the entrance test scheduled for May 26.
Notably, the DTE decided to hold the PGET-CET-2013 for ME/M Tech admission and MAH-MPH-CET-2013 for M Pharm admission. There will be a Centralised Admission Process (CAP) for admission in full-time and part-time postgraduate degree course in Master of Engineering or Technology (ME/M Tech) in government, aided, university departments and unaided institutes (including autonomous and minority) across the State.
The online application process for the PGET-CET began on May 11 (last date 19) and for MAH-MPH-CET on May 10 (last date May 18). Only three universities of Maharashtra — Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, North Maharashtra University and University of Mumbai — offer M Tech (Drugs and Pharmaceuticals).
Those students who have passed B Pharm and B Tech are eligible to take its CET. However, when local students started filling online application forms, they were in for a shock as there is no mention of M Tech (Drugs and Pharmaceuticals) on the list of options.
A group of students told this newspaper that they are a worried lot as they don't know how to apply for the entrance test in absence of the required information. The last date for applying for the test is also fast approaching.
When contacted, joint director of Technical Education Mahesh Shivankar was not available for his comment.
