GATE 2022 Syllabus for Civil Engineering and Paper Combinations
GATE 2022 Civil Engineering (GATE CE) syllabus is the same as it was in GATE 2021 CE. The major difference is in GATE 2021, there were not many options to attempt a secondary paper with GATE CE. But, this time in GATE 2022 there are 5 papers that can be taken along GATE CE 2022.
In this blog, we will see two major things about GATE CE 2022.
Yesterday, on the 31st of July, IIT Kharagpur, the organizing institute of GATE 2022 released the final notification for GATE 2022. GATE 2022 is going to start from 05th February 2022 and it has a four days schedule (Both Forenoon and Afternoon) - 05th, 06th, 12th and 13th of February 2022.
Here is the final notification.
Syllabus of GATE Civil Engineering 2022 (GATE CE)
Let us understand the various sections of the GATE CE paper.
Apart from the General Aptitude (GA) section that carries 15 marks, the question paper consists of two parts: Engineering Mathematics and Technical part.
The technical part has 6 broad sections - Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, and Geomatics Engineering.
Let us know it better with a flowchart!
The syllabus is taken from the official notification.
This time there is no change in question pattern or the syllabus of GATE CE to that of GATE CE 2021.
Unlike GATE 2021, GATE 2022 has a great number of paper combinations. Earlier in GATE 2021, there were not many paper combinations, for which candidates had to appear only for one paper. But, this time, you will have more options to choose your papers.
Candidates opting to appear in TWO subject papers must have a primary choice of paper as their default choice. The second choice of paper has to be chosen from the allowed combinations given here.
Keeping GATE CE as your primary paper, you can attempt for 5 secondary papers- Aerospace Engineering (AE), Architecture and Planning (AR), Environmental Science and Engineering (ES), Geomatics Engineering (GE), and Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NM).
If you want to attempt GATE CE as your secondary paper, the primary papers can be- Architecture and Planning (AR), Environmental Science and Engineering (ES), Geomatics Engineering (GE), and Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NM).
That's all for this one, hope I passed the information well. Do well, keep safe, and all the very best for everything you do!
