GATE 2017 Civil Engineering (CE) Syllabus

Last Updated - October 20, 2016

GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is considered to be a competitive exam for engineers is conducted and managed jointly by all the seven IITs and IISc Bangalore. For any engineer who wishes to save a spot in any of the 7 IITs or IISc Bangalore will have to take GATE exam.IIT Roorkee is set to conduct GATE 2017 this year. GATE 2017 Civil Exam will be held on February 4-5 or 11-12, 2017 (tentative).         

GATE Application ProcessGATE Exam CentersGATE Exam PatternGATE How To ApplyGATE Syllabus

Civil Engineering is one of the branches, which comes under the profession of engineering. It deals with the planning, maintaining and construction of the physical and naturally built environment like bridges, roads, tunnels and canals etc. The candidate applying for GATE 2017 for civil exam has to go through the Eligibility criteria for GATE. Through this a candidate will know if he/ she is suitable to fill the  Application Form of GATE. After going through this process, if a candidate is eligible, GATE Admit Card will be issued to the candidate.

GATE 2017 Exam Pattern

GATE is an all India competitive exams for the engineers from different branches; the candidate should make sure that they are thorough with the syllabus and pattern of the GATE 2017 exam. GATE 2017 will be an online objective type of exam, consisting a total of 65 Questions carrying a weightage of 100 marks. Also, the candidate should be careful while answering the GATE 2017 questions, as there will be negative marking too.

GATE 2017 exam will be a 3-hour long online exam that will cover three sections. GATE 2017 three sections are mentioned below:
