GATE which stands for Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering .It is one of the toughest test , and all India Examination that basically test that the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology and it has been known for testing the engineering basics in a smart way that need the effort of mastering an entire course of engineering more than 30+ subjects which gives it a level of toughness in itself and is jointly conducted by Indian Institute of Science and seven IIT’s on the behalf of National Coordination Board-GATE , MHRD, Govt. of India and department of Higher Education .However GATE Score can be of help like it can be used to get into various Post-graduate programmes in Indian Higher Education Institutes and it may be used by Public sector units for the employment screening purposes.
Electronics and Communication Engineering course gives great job opportunities in software and electronics companies.However Software interface is required by all the electronic devices to run and come up with one or other device which controls programs architect and development is done by electronics and communication engineering and it also providing the great opportunities for research and development , as everyday consumer wants new devices to support them in daily life.
In this article I am going to tell you about Reference books of GATE for E.C Engineering and syllabus of electonics and communication.

Although GATE syllabus for Electronics and Communication Engineering has been created in June 2014 but we are adviced to the students who are preparing for GATE 2015 to confirm syllabus once again with us by mailing at email@example.com , because by the time you might have started preparing and little change in syllabus would have come. While mailing your requirements , mail your contact details as well with credentials of your graduation , so that we may be in position to guide you better for GATE exams .
