Karimnagar: A one-day workshop on Digital Electronics and Microprocessors for EC and EE ‘GATE’ aspirants was held at MYAKS Institute, a GATE academy, here on Sunday.
With a view to educate the students about GATE, MYAKS organised the free workshop wherein about 200 students pursuing B.Tech in various engineering colleges of the town participated in the awareness programme. Former Madras IIT students and a well-known GATE instructor, DV Rao, created awareness among the students.
Inaugurating the workshop, Joint Collector Badri Srinivas said that GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) was going to become mandatory for students to get jobs in the government, pursue M.Tech and PhD.
The Joint Collector appreciated the MYAKS Institute management for organising such a workshop for the benefit of the students and called upon the students to strive hard for the development of the country by achieving higher positions.
DV Rao said GATE was mandatory to get jobs in Navaratna companies and 40 public sector undertakings such as Isro, DRDO, BHEL, NTPC among others. There was a wrong notion among the students that it was difficult to get ranks in the GATE. However, it was easy to crack GATE with proper guidance from well experienced trainers.
Institute director Mahesh Kumar said that they had been in the field from last 10 years. Collectorate administrative officer Dindigala Ravinder and students participated in the programme.
