GATE Syllabus is based on the different streams according to the qualifying examination. IIT Delhi has defined the GATE syllabus in this year according to the 23 papers. These will be conducted for providing admissions to the M.Tech programmes offered by the IITs and IISCs. The GATE syllabus 2020 will be the same as the previous year. Candidates need to review GATE syllabus 2020 for the stream that they will be appearing for. The syllabus defines what are the topics need to be prepared for appearing in the examination. This article will give you complete information regarding the GATE Solid Mechanics Syllabus.
