GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is conducted by Seven IIT’s and IISC. Most Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) in India accept GATE score for recruitment of engineers at entry-level positions in various sectors. PSUs for Electrical like BPCL, GAIL, BHEL, HPCL, ONGC, DRDO, DMRC, NHAI, IOCL, etc. do their recruitment for PSUs through GATE 2019.
The reason of recruitment by PSUs through GATE is, as GATE is conducted to test the comprehensive understanding of various subjects in undergraduate in engineering and science and is designed to test the students on how well they know rather than how much they know, it tests your conceptual and analytical skills.
This year, recruitment of PSUs through GATE 2019 is to be conducted by Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati for recruitments in Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) and selection of candidates for M.E./M.Tech/Ph.D programmes in IITs/NITs/CFITs
GATE 2019 which is scheduled to be held in computer-based mode on February 3, 4, 10 and 11.

- Maharatna PSU’s
- Navaratna PSU’s
- Mini-Ratna PSU’s
PSU’s release their cut off score for recruitment of candidates for entry-level positions and candidates who’ve cleared the cutoff score can fill the application form of PSU Recruitment through GATE 2019.
