The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a national level examination that is given by the undergraduate engineering students to prove their level of understandings of the basic engineering subjects. This examination’s score is used for the basis of creating various merit lists for the admission to the various post-graduate programmes (e.g. M.E., M.Tech, direct Ph.D.) in Indian colleges providing higher education with scholarships provided by MHRD and other Government agencies. It is conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven IIT’s.
All these website links are from the various national and the international engineering institutions which are considered as top institutes in the world.
