What is Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE)

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. GATE is conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technologies at RoorkeeDelhiGuwahatiKanpurKharagpurChennai (Madras) and Mumbai (Bombay) on behalf of the National Coordination Board – GATE, Department of Higher EducationMinistry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India.

The GATE score of a candidate reflects the relative performance level of a candidate. The score is used for admissions to various post-graduate educationprograms (e.g. Master of Engineering, Master of Technology, Doctor of Philosophy) in Indian higher education institutes, with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other government agencies. Recently, GATE scores are also being used by several Indian public sector undertakings for recruiting graduate engineers in entry-level positions. It is one of the most competitive examinations in India. GATE is also recognized by various institutes outside India, such as Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.



Why GATE

The M.E/M.Tech/M.S experience at IISc & IIT’s…..

  • True essence of being an engineer or having engineering degree
  • Emphasis on research & development.
  • Advanced engineering concepts through world class faculties.
  • A gateway to extensive practical exercises, various case studies, simulation & modeling of real life problems, individual and group projects, research publications/presentations in journals/conferences etc.
  • Highly competitive environment (best brains in the country), develops & broadens intellectual thought process.

The M.E/M.Tech advantage……

  • Better and more satisfying job profile
  • Earn while you learn: financial scholarships (a minimum of 8000/- INR per month).
  • Higher salary offered as compared to B.E/B.Tech.
  • Eligibility criteria to apply for faculty/research positions in educational/R&D centers

Mandatory qualification even for self financing students to post graduate programs

Have an edge over peers: Awards technical certification.

Accepted in University of Singapore.

Increasing trend among PSU’s making GATE score as an eligibility criteria for job application.
