Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is national level examination for engineering graduates. The main objective of GATE is to test a candidate’s knowledge in different undergraduate subjects of Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture and post-graduate level subjects in Science.
The level of knowledge of any particular candidate reflects in his GATE score. The GATE score is considered by IITs and NITs for inviting engineering graduates to pursue post-graduate programs such as M.E., M.Tech., or Ph.D. The GATE score is also considered by Public Sector Undertaking companies (PSUs) like BHEL, Coal India Limited, GAIL, Indian Oil, NTPC, etc. for job screening purposes.
