Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE)

Organizing Institute - IIT Bombay

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an All-India Examination conducted by the seven Indian Institutes of Technology and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, on behalf of the National Coordinating Board - GATE, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India.

Admission to postgraduate programmes, with MHRD and other government scholarship/assistantship, in Engineering/Technology/Architecture/Pharmacy/Science at engineering colleges/institutes in the country will be open only to those who qualify through GATE.

Some engineering colleges/institutes specify GATE as mandatory qualification even for admission of self-financing students to postgraduate programmes. However, GATE qualification in itself does not guarantee either admission or scholarship/assistantship. GATE qualified candidates in Engineering disciplines are also eligible for the award of the Junior Research Fellowship in CSIR Laboratories. Some Government Organizations prescribe GATE qualification as a requirement for applying to the post of a Scientist.

The following categories of candidates are eligible to appear for GATE 2005.

  1. Bachelor's degree holders in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture/ Pharmacy and those who are in the final or pre- final year of such programmes
  2. Master's degree holders in any branch of Science/ Mathematics/ Statistics/ Computer Applications or equivalent and those who are in the final or pre- final year of such programmes
  3. Candidates in the second or higher year of the Post B.Sc. Four- year Integrated Master's degree programme in Engineering/ Technology or in the third or higher year of the Five- Year integrated Master's degree/ Dual degree programme in Engineering/ Technology
