GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is a prestigious examination held annually on a national level in India. This standardized test is a gateway for aspiring engineers to pursue postgraduate programs in various fields of engineering and technology. The exam is organized jointly by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), making it one of the most sought-after and competitive exams in the country. The National Coordination Board (NCB)-GATE, operating under the Department of Education, Ministry of Education (MoE), Government of India, oversees the administration and coordination of GATE.

Organizer: GATE 2025 will be organized by IIT Roorkee, which is one of the organizing institutes for the exam on a rotating basis.

Chemical Engineering is one of the prominent disciplines featured in the GATE exam, providing aspiring candidates with the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills in this specialized field. With an impressive participation of over 15,000 students annually, this subject continues to attract a significant number of individuals eager to excel in the realm of chemical processes and engineering.

The curriculum of Chemical Engineering in the GATE exam encompasses a comprehensive array of 12 essential subjects, each playing a crucial role in shaping the understanding and proficiency of the candidates.

Mass Transfer (MT),

Heat Transfer (HT),

Fluid Flow (FF),

Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE),


Process dynamics and Instrumentation Control (PDC),

Disclaimer: When it comes to utilizing books for academic purposes, it is essential to exercise caution and discernment. The books mentioned may predominantly focus on GATE questions, with the exception of Mathematics, which offers a comprehensive coverage of various topics. However, it is crucial to bear in mind that relying solely on these books for conceptual understanding may not suffice.

It is advisable to supplement your study materials with at least one comprehensive textbook for each subject to ensure a well-rounded grasp of the content. By incorporating a diverse range of resources, including textbooks, you can enhance your learning experience and deepen your understanding of the subject matter.

That's it for today. Good Luck!
