Selection to OCES/DGFS-2017 is a two-step process: Screening to short-list candidates followed by Selection Interviews of the short-listed candidates. There is a separate selection process for each of the disciplines listed in Table-1 except for RSE (code 44), which is available only as an additional Training Scheme option to applicants belonging to Nuclear Engineering, Physics and Chemistry disciplines (codes 29, 41 and 42). There is no separate Training Scheme called ‘Nuclear Engineering’ and selected candidates belonging to Nuclear Engineering (code 29) will be allotted RSE or Mechanical or Chemical as their Training Schemes. Screening for Selection Interview is through two alternative channels:
(a)Online Screening Test: It will be conducted in all of the nine Engineering disciplines (codes 21-29) and in the five Science disciplines (codes 41-43 and 45-46) at more than forty cities spread across India. The Online Screening Test for OCES/DGFS-2017 will be held in March, 2017. Travel Allowance is not paid for appearing in it. Candidates taking the Online Test in one of the nine engineering disciplines or one of the five science disciplines will be able to choose their centre as well as the date and time of the session in which they wish to appear for the Online Test, subject to availability. Allocation of Online Test slot to candidates will be done on a first come first served basis. Candidates may refer to Instructions on the Online Application Portal for details in this regard.
(b)GATE Score: Candidates will be screened in for Selection Interview on the basis of a valid GATE-2016 or GATE-2017 Score.
Cut-off GATE scores for screening into Selection Interviews will be decided only after the Online Test has concluded and candidates are therefore advised to maximize their chances of being screened into the Selection Interview stage by availing both of the screening avenues detailed above. Screening in of applicants in Nuclear Engineering (code 29) will be only through the Online Test. Students graduating with a Masters Degree from University of Mumbai – Department of Atomic Energy Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences (UM-DAE CBS) and National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER), Bhubaneswar, and whose Cumulative Grade Performance Average (CGPA) is greater than or equal to 7.5 on a scale of 10 will directly be screened into the Selection Interview stage, provided they meet all other eligibility requirements of the OCES/DGFS-2017 program. Such candidates should first submit their application for the OCES/DGFS-2017 program on the Online Application Portal and subsequently forward their details through the Directors of their Institutes.
Selection Interviews of short-listed candidates in all disciplines except Geology and Geophysics will be conducted at the BARC Training School, Mumbai. Interviews in Geology and Geophysics will be held in Hyderabad. Outstation applicants travelling for Interview will be paid to-and-fro second-class sleeper train fare by shortest route or actual fare, whichever is less. Selection Interviews are tentatively scheduled to be held in May-June, 2017. The list of candidates short-listed for Selection Interview will be posted on the Online Application Portal in the second week of April, 2017. Short-listed candidates will be able to choose an Interview slot, based on availability, on the Online Application Portal, in the third week of April, 2017. Final Selection is solely on the basis of performance in Selection Interview, subject to medical fitness.
Other Academic Opportunities: A merit list created out of the Selection Interview Marks may also be used to offer admission to M.Sc. (Engg.) / Ph.D. or Diploma in Radiological Physics programs of BARC under the aegis of HBNI in the academic year 2017-18.
Students admitted to the M.Sc. (Engg.) / Ph.D. program will be paid a Fellowship / Stipend for the duration of their academic program. No permanent employment with DAE is assured to such Research Fellows.
