IPATE (Industrial Proficiency Aptitude Test for Engineers)

IPATE 2020

Students, finally CII(confederation of Indian industry) , has made right it and well anticipated effort in a direction where employers from industry and job aspirants come on a single platform where in the job aspirants can be judged on different parameters and can easily churn out employable engineering graduates for ease of recruitment.

This was a long pending demand from the recruiters where in they were not able to to select candidates as per industry requirements. It was very difficult to segregate high quality engineers from an average ones.

Due to high mushrooming of different categories of engineering colleges and Universities across the country, it had become very difficult to make the recruitment process effective.

No doubt we have examinations like GATE, but its main aim was to to judge the candidate on the basis of theoretical knowledge required in the last four years and was less oriented towards non technical and on the hands skills. Things like managerial skills, situation handling, leadership skills, crisis management,etc.  all were lacking.

Now there will be country wide examination called IPATE which will make the students industry-ready, by measuring their engineering acumen and industrial skill-sets.
