OVERVIEW OF GATE

GATE

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an All-India examination administered and conducted in eight zones across the country by the GATE Committee comprising of Faculty members from IISc, Bangalore and other seven IIT’s on behalf of the National Coordinating Board, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development. The GATE score/rank is used for admissions to Post Graduate Programs (ME, M. Tech, MS, Direct Ph.D.) in institutes like IITs and IISc etc with financial assistance offered by MHRD. PSUs too use the GATE scores for recruiting candidates for various prestigious jobs with attractive remuneration.

In GATE examination, candidates can apply for only one of the 23 papers listed in the table given below. Candidates are expected to appear in a paper appropriate to the discipline of their qualifying degree. However, candidates are free to choose any paper according to their admission plan, keeping in mind the eligibility criteria of the institutions in which they wish to seek admission. For more details regarding the admission criteria in any particular institute, candidateso are advised to refer to the websites f that particular institute.

WhyGATE ?

 

1.     You can get admission in M. Tech/MS in IISc /IITs / NITs and other Universities depending upon your score

2.     If you were unlucky in IIT  JEE, you canget one more chance to realize your cherished goal of studying in IISc / IITsby taking GATE

3.     Based on GATE Score, you can apply for some of the top PSUs which offer lucrative jobs.

4.     You can get a financial aid of RS 12400/- per month in the form of MHRD scholarship

5.     With a good GATE score you can land in IISc /IITs / NITs where you can have abundant campus placements with attractive salary packages ranging from Rs 6 Lakh to 30 Lakh per annum.

6.     You can shift to management side by doing PG Diploma of 2 year in Industrial engineering in NITIE Mumbai, where admission sare based on GATE score and interview.

7.     If you don’t have first class in Engineering and if it is a hurdle to apply for some of the jobs like teaching, it can be over come by doing M. Tech/ MS.

8.     You can try for MS admissions based on GATE score in some of the foreign Universities like in Singapore and Malaysia.
