## What is GATE Exam?

GATE stands for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering conducted jointly by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT’s) and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc) on behalf of Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India. Typically it tests the comprehensive understanding of concepts during the graduation in engineering or science.

On the basis of GATE score one can seek admission into postgraduate(M.E., M.Tech., M.S.) and doctoral(PhD) programmes at IITs, NITs, IISc and almost at all reputed engineering colleges in India. CSIR’s Junior Research Fellowship(JRF) is offered on the basis of GATE merit. JRFs will have an excellent opportunity to work with CSIR Scientists with state-of-art R&D facilities. Many of the Public Sector Companies i.e. PSU like BEL, BHEL, NTPC etc. use GATE score in their recruitment process.

## For whom this Course is!

The Course is ideal for any student preparing for GATE Exam and particularly searching for previous GATE Electrical Engineering Papers and Syllabus.
