Which foreign universities accept GATE score?
Foreign universities accepting GATE score: One of the most popular postgraduate engineering entrance examinations in India, GATE or the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is the gateway to Masters in Engineering (M.E) and Masters in Technology (M.Tech) courses in engineering colleges across the country. However, while GATE score is primarily accepted in IITs, NITs, GFTIs and other private institutes in India, it has crossed the boundary to become an international level test for entry into postgraduate engineering programmes abroad. While universities across the world have their own selection criteria or accept GRE scores, some institutes in two countries- Singapore and Germany -- are known to accept GATE score for admission to their PG engineering programmes. Scroll down to know which foreign universities accept GATE score outside India.
Before we bring you the foreign universities accepting GATE score outside India, let us first discuss about the GATE exam:
The GATE syllabus consists of 23 papers covering all the major subject areas in engineering starting from Aerospace Engineering to Textile Engineering, among others. GATE comprises of two types of questions - Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Numerical Questions. Both MCQs and Numerical Questions carry 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections. While there is negative marking for MCQs (For 1-mark questions, 1/3 mark is deducted for a wrong answer and for 2-mark questions, 2/3 mark is deducted.) there is no negative marking for the Numerical questions.
Which foreign universities accept GATE score in Singapore?
Two of the best known universities in Singapore accept GATE score for admission to their post graduate engineering programmes. They are the highly ranked Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS) and are positioned among the top 20 universities in the world according to QS world university ranking.
Among the foreign universities accepting GATE score, Nanyang Technological University accepts GATE scores in its PhD and M.Eng programmes. However, the GATE score should not be more than 3 years old. NTU accepts GATE scores in the following engineering schools:
School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering
School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
School of Computer Engineering
School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
School of Materials Science and Engineering
School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Among the foreign universities accepting GATE score, the NTU schools do not have any said GATE cutoff for admission to the engineering programmes. However, there has been a preference for student with at least 90 percentile.
As in NTU, the National University of Singapore, too, accepts GATE scores in its M.Sc and PhD programmes. Majority of the programmes covered under the Faculty of Engineering accept GATE scores. Like in NTU, here, too, the preference is for students who have at least 90 percentile in GATE.
