In the same year, the intake of Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science and Engineering, were raised to 45 and 60 students respectively and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering was rechristened as Electronics and Communication Engineering and intake was raised to 60. In 2006, the intake of Civil Engineering was increased to 45. From 2007 a four-year B. Tech programme in Electrical Engineering with an intake of 60 students was added to the existing B. Tech programmes.
In 2005 two postgraduate programmes in Environmental Engineering and Construction Technology and Management (in the Civil Engineering Department) and one in Manufacturing Science and Technology (in the Mechanical Engineering Department) with intake of 18 students each, was started. In 2006 an M. Tech. programme in Digital Communication System (in the Electronics and Communication Engineering Department) with an intake of 20 students was added to the list of postgraduate programmes. In 2007, a two-year management programme leading to an M.B.A. degree with an intake of 60 students, was started. The total intake of students in the institute, including M. Tech. programmes, is 474.
The institute admits students for its Bachelor in Technology (B.Tech) programme from all over India through the competitive Common Entrance Test SEE-UPTU.
The B.Tech degrees in Civil, Electronics and Communication, Mechanical, Computer Science and Chemical branches of the institute have been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation. The CS and ME branches have been re-accredited for a period of three years, starting 2004, whereas the CE branch has been accredited for a period of five years.
