GATE 2009

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all-India examination administered and conducted in eight zones across the country by the GATE Committee comprising faculty from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of the National Coordinating Board - GATE, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India. Admission to post graduate programmes at engineering and other professional colleges in the country such as IISc Bangalore, IITs, NITs and other colleges are open to those who qualify through GATE. GATE qualified candidates in Engineering disciplines are also eligible for the award of Junior Research Fellowship in CSIR Laboratories. Some government organizations prescribe GATE qualification as a requirement for applying to the post of a Scientist/Engineer. GATE is held on the second Sunday of every February in 21 disciplines, of which Electronics and Communication engineering (EC) and Computer Science (CS) form the largest chunk.

GATE 2009 Pattern and Changes The GATE pattern has undergone significant changes over the last few years and the GATE’09 announcement threw up another surprise. Instead of the usual 85 questions totaling 150 marks, GATE’09 had only 60 questions totaling 100 marks (visit www.gateforum.com to see the complete pattern details). Another significant change has been in the penalty for a wrong answer - up from 1/4th in GATE’08 to 1/3rd in GATE’09. Also, the validity of the GATE score has been reduced from two years to one year. This means that an aspirant has to take up GATE again if he/she wishes to apply the next year. Though there was a drop in the difficulty level of the questions asked across all streams, the questions had gotten trickier. A complete understanding of the concepts was required of the candidate in order to succeed. And since the penalty for a wrong answer was higher, it made the question paper riskier than the earlier ones. We believe that this paper was designed so as so clearly segregate the good students from the others (For a complete analysis of the GATE’09 paper, visit www.gateforum.com). Increase in Competition Although the number of aspirants had been steadily increasing since 2001, GATE’09 saw a significant jump with more than 2 lakh students appearing. ECE and Computer Science had more than forty thousand aspirants while the electrical and

mechanical papers saw more than twenty thousand test takers. This increase in the number can be attributed to the current economic recession which has made jobs scarce and has increased the attractiveness of an M.Tech degree.

The GATE’09 Results Analysis This is the first time that the marks scored by a candidate have also been displayed. All the ambiguity surrounding the exam has vanished and we can analyze the results objectively. The table below shows the marks required for a corresponding range of ranks. AIR Range Stream ECE CS EE ME IN 1-50 >70 >60 >48 >66 >26 51-200 60 – 70 52 – 60 39 – 48 55 – 66 22 – 26 201-500 52 – 60 46 – 52 32 – 39 47 – 55 18 – 22 501-1000 44 – 52 41 - 46 26 – 32 39 – 47 15 – 18 1001-2000 38 – 44 35 – 41 20 – 26 32 – 39 Qualifying ~ 22 ~ 20 ~ 16 ~ 19 ~ 15

The above table clearly shows that the IN paper, along with the EE paper, was the toughest and the ECE paper was the easiest. The extreme toughness of the IN paper makes a strong case for an instrumentation engineer to appear in the ECE discipline as the chances of qualifying the exam are better. Also, we can see that the qualifying marks are nearly the same in all the papers. This years results have also shown that despite the papers being slightly easier, the deceptiveness incorporated in the papers coupled with the increase in penalty and the increase in number of test takers have intensified competition in the AIR >200 range. After GATE what? Once the initial hurdle (GATE) is cleared, an aspirant is faced with another – that of the admission process of various colleges. Each department of each college has a different selection procedure which often creates confusion and indecisiveness in the mind of the aspirant. For example, the ME program at the IISc has direct admission whereas the M.Tech program has a written

test followed by an interview and the MS program has only an interview. Hence a candidate has to prepare for all processes thoroughly. Also, one has to apply to each department separately since there is no common counseling procedure. Hence each candidate has to judiciously select departments where he has the best chance of getting admission, given his GATE rank. A rank of below 100 would pose no problems as it would guarantee a seat in either the IISc or IIT Mumbai, but if you have secured a rank above 100, the options get confusing, especially while choosing the combination of institute and specialization and also in cases of inter disciplinary admissions. This is where a student will do well to take expert guidance. (Please visit www.gateforum.com for a comprehensive post GATE admission guide) We wish you luck in your pursuit of an M.Tech.

IISC
The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was started in 1909 through the pioneering vision of J.N. Tata. Since then, it has grown into a premier institution of research and advanced instruction, with more than 2000 active researchers working in almost all frontier areas of science and technology. IISc is an institute of higher learning and is constantly in pursuit of excellence. It is one of the oldest and finest centres of its kind in India, and has a very high international standing in the academic world as well. Academic programs leading to M.E. or M.Tech by course work and Ph.D. and M.Sc.(Engg.) by research are available in almost all the departments. Excellent laboratory and computational facilities, an unique library, outstanding faculty with strong interests in both basic and applied sciences, make 'dream come true' kind of environment to students with strong interest and aptitude for research. These programs attract students from all corners of the country, in addition to some international students. IISc offers ME/MTECH/MS/MSc/PHD in 18 departments/centers. The major research areas of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Electrical Communication Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering are as follows:

Computer Science: - The main areas of research are: Theoretical Computer Science Software System Computer Architecture Intelligent System Data base Management System Compiler Design Electrical Communication Engineering: - The department has four major specialization areas. Communication and Networking: -Network test bed labs with Cisco routers, wireless LAN devices, link and traffic emulaters, miniature wireless sensors, and several reconfigurable PCs; ERNET network operations centre; protocol engineering & testing software; network simulation software: ns2, OPNET, Qualnet.

Signal Processing: -Speech and audio lab with facility for realtime multichannel audio processing using RME sound cards and Yamaha mixer; various speech data bases, noise databases, and music instrument databases; Wireless Sensor Networks lab with facility for real-time signal processing experiments with TI code composer studio + fine EVMs based on C62xx and C67xx DSPs; special facilities for wireless sensor signal processing: 3GHz spectrum analyzer, RF transceiver boards, WiFi access points/cards, wireless camera, RFID transponders, GPS kits, MEMS accelerometer chips; biomedical lab with facilities for recording and processing of ECE and ECG signals. Microwave Engineering: - RFMEMS, Antennas, Microwave Circuits, Terahertz System Nano electronics and VLSI Nano electronics and VLSI: Photonics: Electrical Engineering: - Current research areas in the department are broadly classified into Power System and Power Electronics: - Computer aided protection, Energy Management System, Power system dynamics and control, Power Electronics System Science and Signals Processing: - Computer architecture, Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence, Learning Systems, Computer Tomography, Medical Imaging and Bio-signal processing, Computer Network.

Mechanical Engineering: -Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing, Rapid Prototyping, Robotics and Controls, Turbomachinery and Combustion Systems, IC Engines, Multi-Phase flow, Nano-mechanics, Tribology, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Acoustics.

Admission Procedure: - The process is different for all the four programs (ME/MTECH/MS/MSc) offered by IISC. ME: - The admission is purely based on Gate Performance (AIR/Score). There is no test and interview. Rank below 50(AIR 50) can almost guarantee a seat in ME Course. MTECH: - Admission to this program is based on the performance in test and interview conducted by respective department. Center of Electronic Design and Technology (CEDT) and Computational Science department offer MTech Course. A rank of 400-

500 in EC/CS/EE can be said safe range for getting the call for CEDT Course whereas rank in the range of 80-90 is considered to be safe for getting call from Computational Science department. MS/MSc: - These are research-orientated programs and admission to these programs is also based on test/interview. Rank as high as 700-800 could end up in giving an interview call for these programs. IISC also conducts its own entrance test and good performance (Score/rank) in this test will also be helpful in getting the interview calls if Gate Score is not sufficient enough for applying. For details for admission procedure, cut-off and eligibility, refer table for IISC.

At the time of counseling, applicants, one-by-one in order of merit (in GATE score), will be offered seats depending upon their eligibility and options given in the application form. Those applicants who do not report for counseling will not be eligible for admission in the session. The selected applicants will have to hand over the original Gate Scorecard along with demand draft towards fees. One advantage with IIT Kharagpur is that there is no need to fill up different form for different department as one can give eight preferences (maximum) in a single application form, which is not the case with other IITs.
