The notification for GATE is generally published in October.
Getting good percentile score in GATE opens gateway to higher education with attractive scholarship. GATE qualified candidates( in Engineering subjects) will also be eligible for the award of Junior Research Fellowship in CSIR Laboratories.
Obtained a bachelor’s degree in Engineering from a Government recognised University( final year students may also apply); or Candidates with professional qualification like AMIE and those who have completed Section A or equivalent of such professional degree courses.
After having a valid GATE score, an AMIE should apply for admission to postgraduate programmes in individual institutions, at appropriate time. Admissions of candidates to postgraduate programmes will be governed by the rules and regulations of individual institutions to which they apply.
An AMIE should also be equipped with no objection certificate which can be obtained from the last institution( The Institution of Engineers, Kolkata for AMIE aspirants) attended by you as a regular student.
