GATE 2013 Application September 1

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE), the all India examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various Undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology, conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven IITs (Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee), on behalf of the National Coordination Board-GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India will be held in January/ February, 2013.

GATE score of a candidate is expected to reflect the relative performance level of a candidate. The score is used for admissions to various Post-Graduate Programmes (M.E, M.Tech, direct Ph.D etc.) in higher education institutes in India, with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other Government agencies.  The score may also be used by Public sector units for employment screening purposes.

A valid GATE score is essential for obtaining a financial assistance during Masters Programmes and in some cases during direct Doctoral Programmes in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and Doctoral Programmes in relevant branches of Science in an Institution supported by the MHRD or other Government organizations.  To avail the financial assistance (scholarship), the candidate must first secure admission to a Programme in one of these Institutes, by a procedure that could be different for each institute.Qualification in GATE is also a minimum requirement to apply for various fellowships awarded by many Government organizations.

However, candidates with a Master’s Degree in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture may seek admission to relevant Doctoral Programmes with scholarship/assistantship without appearing in the GATE examination.

GATE is conducted through the constitution of eight zones. The zones and the corresponding administrative institutes are:
Zone-1: Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
Zone-2: Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
Zone-3: Indian Institute of Technology Delhi
Zone-4: Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati
Zone-5: Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur
Zone-6: Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur
