Syllabus For GATE 2018 Exam Download PDF For Respective Branch

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering 2018 is an examination conducted all over India and is conducted by GATE committee, which is formed by faculty of IISc and IIT’s. GATE examination scores and rank are used for admissions in various post-graduation courses (ME, M.Tech, Direct PHD, MS). GATE 2018 Examination will be conducted by Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati IITG.

GATE 2018 Exam Syllabus updated will be released by Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati IITG, if there are any major changes in the topics, as the sources suggest there will be no major changes in the GATE syllabus for 2018 examination. In order to crack exam this year with good score one must focus on the syllabus and study each and every topic thoroughly, clear the basic fundamentals of the subjects and the topics as per the stream chosen for the examination.

GATE 2018 is a big scale competitive exam which helps the candidates to achieve the several benfits info different sectors. Some of them are listed below-

  1. Tech Degree: The candidates who score well in GATE 2018 exam will get the chance to get admissions into top IITs, NITs for their post- graduation degree.
  2. PSUs: The good scorers will also get placed into national & international private and public top companies where getting job is not at all easy. For eg- IOCL, NTPC, BHEL, PGCIL, BARC
  3. Professional Career as Teacher: The good scorers can also get job into teaching field or become Professor, lecturers, Asst. Professor at IITs, NITs etc.
  4. PhD programmes: The candidates can join the top companies as Jr. Research Fellow & Sr. Research Fellow or as Jr Research Associates/ Sr Project Associates.

Under Engineering stream, the topics included are the ones which are studied in the degree course.  GATE 2018 is a Computer Based Test, in which the candidates need practice to solve the questions. In Engineering Mathematics paper, the candidates should practice the questions related to it. It is important to study equally well for both the type of questions. Study for the exam in a well  formed way so that you don’t leave a loophole from your end.

Mathematics Engineering will include the questions from below topics and this section is common for all branches-

Linear Algebra: Questions related to Matrix Algebra, Systems of Linear Equations, Eigen vectors and values are asked.

Calculus: In this section, questions related to Gauss and Green’s theorems, Mean value theorems, Theorems of integral calculus, Evaluation of definite and improper integrals, Maxima and minima, Multiple integrals, Fourier series. Vector identities, Partial Derivatives, Directional derivatives, Line, Surface and Volume integrals, Stokes are asked.


Differential equations: In this section, questions related to First order equation (linear and nonlinear), Higher order linear differential equations with constant coefficients, Method of variation of parameters, Cauchy’s and Euler’s equations, Initial and boundary value problems, Partial Differential Equations and variable separable method are asked.

Probability and Statistics: In this section, questions related to Sampling theorems, Conditional probability, Mean, median, mode and standard deviation, Random variables, Discrete and continuous distributions, Poisson, Normal and Binomial distribution, Correlation and regression analysis are asked.

Numerical Methods: In this section, questions related to Solutions of non-linear algebraic equations, single and multi-step methods for differential equations.

Complex Variables: In this section, questions related to Analytic functions, Cauchy’s integral theorem and integral formula, Taylor’s and Laurent’ series, Residue theorem, solution integrals are asked.

Transform Theory: Fourier transforms, Laplace transform, Z-transform are asked.

Some questions are asked from the reasoning section which are high scoring questions in the exam. For every post, the syllabus are mentioned stream wise.
