List of PSUs for Civil Engineering Through GATE

By Himanshu Bajpai|Updated : August 4th, 2021

About Civil Engineering PSU Recruitment Through GATE- There are two approaches to recruiting applicants for Public Sector Undertakings (PSU) jobs in India. The first is through a recruitment test conducted by the PSU company, and the second is through the GATE entrance exam. The candidates who have opted for the GATE entrance exam have to qualify the score set for PSU, which is selected based on the number of vacancies.

Few PSUs consider candidates based on minimum qualifying score for the test recruitment, whereas few PSUs qualify candidates based on GATE examination scores. However, the candidates will be finally selected based on calculating the GATE exam scores and the successive recruitment rounds.
