  • GATE Introduction:

    Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a national examination conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore and the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (at Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) on behalf of the National Coordination Board (NCB)-GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education (MoE), Government of India.

    Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a national examination conducted to test the comprehensive understanding of the candidates in various undergraduate subjects in Engineering / Technology / Architecture and both undergraduate and post-graduate level subjects in Arts, Commerce and Science.

  • About GATE :

    Qualifying in GATE is a mandatory requirement for seeking admission and/or financial assistance to: (i) Master’s programs and direct Doctoral programs in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and (ii) Doctoral programs in relevant branches of Arts and Science, in the institutions supported by the MoE and other Government agencies. Even in some colleges and institutions, which admit students without MoE scholarship/assistantship, the GATE qualification is mandatory.

    Further, many Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) have been using the GATE score in their recruitment process.In the past, several Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) have used GATE score to shortlist the candidates for employment.

  • Opportunities GATE Exam:

    Here are some opportunities after GATE exam that candidates can pursue. These can differ from candidate to candidate choice in which field they want to make their career. GATE is the gateway to many opportunities, shared in brief and explanatory ways in the article below.

    Private Jobs after GATE:

    Many private companies, which are multinational companies, GATE-qualified M.Tech., passed out candidates for their professional research posts.

    Research Opportunities:

    Candidates can become a scientist, and the GATE exam is the entrance to the job. Candidates can earn degrees from IITs and NITs only by GATE score and apply to various scientific departments of different research centers in India.

    Scholarships Programs:

    The benefits of the GATE exam are not just good job opportunities. With a valid GATE score, a candidate can also get scholarships for higher studies. A monthly stipend of 12,400 rupees is provided to GATE-qualified candidates when they pursue the M.Tech / M.Pharm / M.Arch. Degrees.

    Foreign Universities:

    GATE is a chance to fulfil the aspiration of pursuing higher studies from foreign universities. GATE Scorecard can aid you in applying to foreign universities for higher studies.

  • Postgraduate Entrance (M.Tech):

    After graduation, and M.Tech is the most popular option for engineering students. It will provide expertise in your area so you can get a good job anywhere. In addition, most companies search for postgraduates who are better at problem-solving skills. Although you will get many more opportunities after graduation, a master’s degree will gradually increase your job opportunities and give you a job in reputed MNCs. GATE scorecard is valid for M.Tech admission for 3 years. Different benefits of the M.Tech program are: Some of the top companies hire from institutes like IIT and NIT. They look for students with experience, and experience can come after you finish your M.Tech. Higher pay packages Faculty/Research positions in educational institutes and most of the RD centers.

  • Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs):

    The GATE exam became hype after various public-sector units (PSUs) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with IITs for recruitment through GATE. So, clearing the GATE examination can help you get government sector jobs. Various PSUs use the GATE Scorecard for hiring candidates. PSUs like ONGC, GAIL, IOCL, PGCIL, NLC, NTPC, and NLC hire through GATE Scores followed by Group discussions, Personal Interviews, and Group tasks. Even DRDO sometimes recruits through GATE Scores. Else it will conduct its written test. Some PSUs like SAIL, ISRO, VIZAG, BEL, BSNL Some of the leading PSUs in India use GATE scores as their eligibility criteria.

  • PhD Entrance Exam:

    A Master’s degree leads to specialization, cultivates, and brings out the best of your interest in a certain area which may further interest you in research/Ph.D. Moreover, based on the GATE score, some foreign universities (Like NTU and Singapore) offer PhD positions without a GRE score. The recruitment process for the PhD program includes a valid GATE score and then facing an interview panel based on the respective interest area.

  • Fellowship Program in Management (FPM):

    It is a five-year program run at IIMs. This program has the following features: A monthly stipend is offered of ₹ 29,000-30,000. No tuition fees for almost four years and nine months. Students who live off-campus will get a house-rent allowance (HRA) of ₹ 8,000 for a single student and ₹ 13,000 for married students.

  • Research Opportunities:

    GATE-qualified students are also eligible for the award of Junior Research Fellowship in CSIR Laboratories and CSIR-sponsored projects. The most searched opportunity after GATE exam is research. Some particular research positions are available through GATE at Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC). However, BARC conducts its examination for recruitment. Also, industries like ISRO conduct their exams similarly to GATE.
