How to prepare for GATE Metallurgical Engineering?

Last Updated - July 16, 2019

Metallurgical Engineering is the science of processing materials to extract, recycle and refining of metals. It is the strong dependence of our society on metals that gives the profession of Metallurgical Engineering its continuous importance in present day. Those candidates who prepare for GATE Metallurgy Engineering need to polish their preparation as only few days are left. 

GATE Exam PatternGATE Paper AnalysisGATE MT Syllabus

Subject code for GATE Metallurgical Engineering is MT. GATE 2020 will take a place from February 01, 02, 08 and 9, 2020. Registration will start from September 1, 2019 and ends on September 24, 2019.

  • The subject explains about the mining, extraction, design, and processing of metals, as well as how metals react to environmental changes or stress.
  • Metallurgy subject is not complex, smart study is the way that help candidates to deal with its complexity.
  • Here are many other ways that boost up the GATE Preparation such as solving practice sets, referring good books etc. so read on!

Tips for GATE Metallurgical Engineering

A good GATE Score will let you enter in best college for M.Tech in Metallurgical Engineering. For getting best university/ institute, preparation must be done in a smarter way. Small tips can result in reducing negative markings. Given below are some tips that that are very useful for GATE Metallurgy preparation.

  • Do not skip any numerical problem/ examples while reading practicing any topic.
  • Cover topics such as Plastic Forming of Metals part (forging, rolling & extrusion) according to the topics mentioned in manufacturing part of GATE Metallurgy syllabus. 
  • Practice all solved and unsolved numerical problems rigorously.
  • You can skip following chapters from Corrosion Science- Corrosion Testing, Materials, Mineral Acids & Other Environments.
  • You can prefer Made Easy books for practicing Engineering Mathematics.
  • While studying from video lectures, do make notes.
  • Joining any online test series either by Pro GATE or Career Avenues is helpful.
  • For GATE Metallurgy point of view, cover only those topics that are enlisted in GATE syllabus, don’t go beyond.
  • Practice numerical problems that are directly based on formulae. This would make you better in remembering formulae.
  • Practice all previous years’ GATE Metallurgy question paper as some questions repeat every year but don’t follow the answers provided by any publication, it may confuse you. Try finding out your solution.
  • Make sure, you use only GATE virtual calculator while solving numerical problems. Enhance your calculation speed.
  • New topics related to Powder Metallurgy are added to GATE Metallurgical Engineering Syllabus this year, do focus on them.
