The goal of this test will be to evaluate your knowledge of undergraduate level fundamental concepts in Computer Science and Engineering. There will also be a programming component to the test where you will be asked to write simple programs in a language of your choice among the following set of languages: C/C++ , Java and Python. Your program is supposed to compile and generate the expected output, to score in programming questions. Those clearing the first stage will be asked for appear for Stage 2 on the following day.
Stage 2: This will consist of a written (subjective type) test in the morning (second day) followed by an in-person interview. Stage 2 will consiste of more detailed/advanced set of questions including testing the depth of your understanding, especially in the areas of your interest/proposed research.
