GATE or Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is one of the most prestigious exam for engineering students. GATE not only helps in getting admissions for masters in IIT and other reputed universities, it also helps in getting more than five figure salary every month. Most of engineering related government job selection completed on the base of GATE qualified score. In India, government organizations like DRDO, NPTEL, NTPC, BHEL, GAIL even an IAF shortlist candidate on the base of GATE qualified score
After completing B tech or B.E, most of the students who want to make their career in research and development, they look forward for masters. Getting a master’s degree from reputed universities like IIT, IISC etc. increases the importance and knowledge of his field.
When anyone qualifies GATE ,it means he/she has good engineering knowledge. That’s why R&D companies and organizations demand for GATE qualified score.
