The examination is a gateway for students to gain entry into engineering colleges in the state.
Aside from BE, the exam is also written by candidates interested in farm science courses such as BSc (Hons) Agriculture, BTech (Agri Engg), and BTech (Food Technology). Entry to Veterinary Science and Pharmacy courses are also through CET.
This year, admission to AYUSH courses, in both private and government colleges, will also be through the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).
