"The two new papers for GATE 2022 will be Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, Geomatics Engineering", IIT Kharagpur, the Organising Institute of GATE 2022. Including these two papers, the total papers in GATE 2022 will be 29. The final syllabus of the paper is released on the 31st of July 2021.
After the National Coordination Board(NCB-GATE) meeting held on Saturday. Prof. Deepankar Choudhury, organising chairman of GATE 2021 told: "the two new papers will be Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, Geomatics Engineering".
Few things on Geomatics Engineering
Syllabus for GATE Geomatics Engineering
The paper is so fresh that guessing the syllabus and other things would be too uncertain this time. We will have to wait till August/September to hear all the updates regarding these subjects from the organising institute.
Geomatics Engineering is also a section of the GATE Civil Engineering(CE) Syllabus. It includes- Principles of surveying; Errors and their adjustment; Maps - scale, coordinate system; Distance and angle measurement - Levelling and trigonometric levelling; Traversing and triangulation survey; Total station; Horizontal and vertical curves. Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing - Scale, flying height; Basics of remote sensing and GIS. So, we can expect a wider version of this syllabus.
What is Geomatics Engineering?
Geomatics engineering is a key field for measuring, modelling, and presenting geospatial data and various phenomena.
The latest technological developments such as global satellite navigation, autonomous navigation, driver assistance systems, digital maps and virtual globes have enhanced the public’s understanding of this field.
Geomatics Engineering deals with the presentation of geographic data or geographic information. In short, it focuses on spatial information and data.
Geomatics is a field that incorporates several others such as the older field of land surveying engineering along with many other aspects of spatial data management ranging from data science and cartography to geography.
Geomatics is a wide subject, that will find many students starting from B.Sc., M.Sc, B.Tech., etc. Hope the decision will come out as a great one.
There are some similar topics related to Geomatics in the B.Tech./B.E. Surveying course. So it will help Civil Engineers to take a chance in this paper.
How to Prepare for GATE GE
How to prepare for GATE GE? We understand this is a new course and APSEd has your back. Last time for GATE ES and this time for GATE GE, APSEd is the first to launch a course on these.

M.Tech Course on Geomatics in IITs and NITs
IITs like IIT Roorkee, IIT Kanpur (Geo-Informatics) and IIT Bombay have this course in M.Tech. Couse Structure. NIT Allahabad is the only NIT that has a similar M.Tech. course, Geo-informatics.
The course structure of IIT Roorkee Geomatics Engineering will give you a slightly more idea about the depth of this paper.
