GATE CE Exam Overview
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. It is used for admission into Master's programs and recruitment by some Public Sector Companies. GATE Examination is jointly conducted by the seven Indian Institutes of Technology at Mumbai, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Chennai, Roorkee & Indian Institute of Science at Bengaluru on behalf of the National Coordination Board – GATE, The Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education (MoE), Government of India. It is used for admission into postgraduate programs in Indian educational institutions with financial assistance provided by the government, and it is also used for recruitment in various public and private sector companies. The exam covers a wide range of subjects, including engineering disciplines, mathematics, and general aptitude.
