Environmental Science and Humanities: GATE 2021’s NEW and HIT Courses

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering or GATE is a national-level entrance examination that tests the student's knowledge of undergraduate topics in Engineering and Science. It allows them to seek admissions into the Master's Degree programs of renowned institutions. In addition to this, this exam also allows students to seek job opportunities in Public Sector Companies in our country. 

Candidates can also opt for colleges in Bangalore and pursue world-class master's degree courses. They can seek admissions in Bangalore and explore numerous opportunities in the city that houses some of the best colleges in India. 

GATE is conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the 7 regional Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). The procedure is overseen by the National Coordination Board- GATE, which is a subsequent body of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.  

GATE 2021 will be held in February 2021 and will be organized by the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT B). The GATE application process started on 11th September 2020 and ended on 8th October 2020. 

GATE New Subjects:

2 GATE new subjects were being offered for GATE 2021. On adding the 2 GATE new subjects, the total number of subjects for GATE rose to 27. They are:

  • Environmental Science and Engineering (ES)
  • Humanities and Social Science (XH)

IIT B reported a considerable amount of GATE application for GATE new subjects. This year, the total number of GATE applications rose to over 8 lakh, out of which 14,804 are for Environmental Science and Engineering (ES), and 14,196 are for Humanities and Social Science (XH). 

It shows how students want to take up courses that addressed issues around them. The high number of applications in these fields shines a bright light on the development process of these fields. 

The addition of the Humanities course also increased the female students' registration for GATE 2021. Around 2.8 lakh female students had registered for GATE 2020. The number rose to 2.9 lakh for GATE 2021. Out of the 14,196 students registered for Humanities, 8,600 are females. 

Apart from these 2 courses, GATE 2021 also saw an increase in the total number of applications as compared to the previous year. Last year GATE saw 8.33 lakh applications, which is slightly less than GATE 2021's 8.77 lakh. 

Registration for Other Subjects:

'Environmental Science and Engineering (ES)' and 'Humanities and Social Science (XH)' are the 2 new entrants, which got high registration counts as compared to new courses that were introduced over the past few years. Subjects such as Biomedical Engineering, Textile Engineering, Ecology and Evolution, Production and Industrial Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, and others received low application count. 

Biomedical Engineering received only 2292 applicants, whereas Textile Engineering received only 2026 applications. The lower number of undergraduate colleges providing the above courses has been stated as the reason for the application number. Surprisingly, Statistics, which is one of the most sought after undergraduate courses, saw only 1990 applications. 

Apart from these new entrants, the traditional courses of GATE, such as Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and others, received the highest number of applications among all the courses. These courses have been popular choices as they allow students to pursue their education at the highest level at the best colleges and also pursue employment opportunities in these fields. 

GATE 2021 Zone-wise Registration:

Due to the pandemic, the majority of the candidates returned to their native places. It led to the reflection of real-time zonal statistics related to GATE 2021 registration. 

Since the 7 Zonal IITs and IISc, Bangalore, conduct the GATE examination every year, the registration statistics focus on the 7 zones. Also, it includes figures for IISc, Bangalore. 

Below is the table for GATE 2021 zone-wise registration:

Zonal IITs
Registration Figures
IIT Bombay
1.76 lakhs
IIT Kharagpur
1.3  lakhs
IIT Madras
1.28  lakhs
IIT Guwahati
68,480
IIT Kanpur
87,025
IIT Roorkee
59,905
IIT Delhi
1.13  lakhs
IISc Bangalore
1.2  lakhs

GATE has always been a preferred postgraduate entrance examination that allows students to pursue a wide range of courses at top institutions in the country. With courses such as  Environmental Science and Humanities getting a reasonable amount of attention, test-takers have started to think ahead of conventional options that used to dominate such examinations.
