GATE Syllabus is announced by Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati. It is organizeed for 23 various engineering branches. The syllabus and format are various for each branch.
GATE Civil Engineering syllabus includes 3 sections namely- General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and Civil Engineering. The weightage of the sections is 13%, 15% and 72% respectively.
GATE is a national level online test which is organizeed for admission to M.Tech/ PhD in the field of engineering and technology. It is organizeed on a rotational basis by zonal IITs and IISc Bangalore.
GATE Syllabus of Civil engineering consists of seven sections namely- Engineering Mathematics, Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering, and Geomatics Engineering. The detailed syllabus of all sections is mentioned below.
Civil Engineering is a professional engineering branch that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical & naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. It is traditionally broken into a number of sub-branches.
