You may be ready for the GATE exam with all your preparation and are looking for the tips to boost up your GATE Score. Talking about the Electromagnetics, regardless of where are you in your journey, chances are you may be feeling exhausted, confused or diffident. You have prepared very well each and every concept but facing difficulties in gathering all the content and reflecting into your Mock Tests. Dear friends, trust us, most of the GATE aspirants have totally been there.

So what if you could get the exciting course which would make you more confident in Electromagnetics and eventually boost up your GATE Score?

YES! It’s not a dream. You can totally do this!

You already might be knowing the importance of Electromagnetics for EC. It has a huge weight-age of marks. Have a look at the syllabus.

Syllabus for Electromagnetics (EC)

Electrostatics; Maxwell’s equations: differential and integral forms and their interpretation, boundary conditions, wave equation, Poynting vector; Plane waves and properties: reflection and refraction, polarization, phase, and group velocity, propagation through various media, skin depth; Transmission lines: equations, characteristic impedance, impedance matching, impedance transformation, S-parameters, Smith chart; Waveguides: modes, boundary conditions, cut-off frequencies, dispersion relations; Antennas: antenna types, radiation pattern, gain and directivity, return loss, antenna arrays; Basics of radar; Light propagation in optical fibers.

How much important is Electromagnetics for EC Students?

We would say, Electromagnetics or EMT (Electromagnetic Theory) is the most important subject for your GATE preparation.

The subject has a weight-age of marks greater than most of the subjects prescribed for the EC syllabus. Rather than marks in the GATE paper, the concepts of EMT are very much helpful to thoroughly understand many other subjects. Electromagnetic Theory also brings the highest weight-age of marks in Engineering Services Examination (ESE).

Once you have a grip over the fundamentals of Electromagnetic Fields, we think, this subject could surely boost your GATE Score.

What is GATE?

GATE stands for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering conducted jointly by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT’s) and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc) on behalf of Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India. Typically it tests the comprehensive understanding of concepts during the graduation in engineering or science.

On the basis of GATE score one can seek admission into postgraduate(M.E., M.Tech., M.S.) and doctoral(PhD) programmes at IITs, NITs, IISc and almost at all reputed engineering colleges in India. CSIR’s Junior Research Fellowship(JRF) is offered on the basis of GATE merit. JRFs will have an excellent opportunity to work with CSIR Scientists with state-of-art R&D facilities. Many of the Public Sector Companies i.e. PSU like BEL, BHEL, NTPC etc. use GATE score in their recruitment process.
