About the Programme:

The Seminar started with welcoming of Members from Vani Institute, Bangalore. The Resource faculty from Vani Institute Mrs.Navatha Chebrolu, started the talk with a brief introduction about the Vani Institute and its Coaching for various Exams.
The seminar was purely based on goals of a student after Engineering. They are broadly classified as
• HIGHER EDUCATION
• PUBLIC SECTOR JOBS
• PRIVATE SECTOR JOBS
To get into any of these, GATE is very much essential. GATE is required for doing Masters ie, ME/M.Tech, M.S, Ph.D. For doing any research-oriented programs, GATE score is required. Singapore provides the best universities to study M.S in abroad for ECE students.
GATE exam is conducted for total 100 marks. It consists of two parts. For ECE students’ part -I is purely based on topics of Electronics and Communication and part -II consists of Mathematics and Aptitudes. GATE is conducted by IIT’s. It is preferable to take the exams in 4th year of Engineering. There is no limit in attempting GATE exam.
GATE score is required for public sector jobs also. Cut-off is 50%. Based on high score, there will no technical round instead there will be direct HR round. In Private sector also they prefer GATE qualified candidates.
Recently AICTE is about to make GATE exam mandatory. There are many indirect advantages of GATE:
• It helps to clear exams conducted by other PSU companies and other central government companies.
• It helps for preliminary exam preparation of IES, etc.
Aiming for IIT’s or public sector jobs are best. Product base companies are best than service-based companies.
Overall the session was inspiring, and students will be benefitted from this seminar.
