The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering or GATE is a competitive examination held all across the nation. It is organized jointly by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), located in Bangalore, and seven of the best IITs in the country. For this examination, each year one IIT or IISc is selected as the Organizing Institute. For the 2014 GATE Exam, the organizing institute will be IIT Kharagpur. Those seeking admission for ME/MTech courses as well as MSc Engineering courses in almost all engineering educational institutes all over the country will need to appear for and clear this examination. ME/MTech is a four-semester program and admission to these programs largely depends upon the percentile score achieved in the GATE exam. The percentile score will also decide which college or institute for engineering the student will get admission in.

The GATE examination is a mandatory requirement for people seeking scholarship/assistantship in the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) for ME and MTech courses.
