Hi Soroush,

If you are thinking about taking admission in M.E Software Engineering in any of the Indian colleges, then you will have to appear for GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering). Most of the premier colleges in India including the Indian Institutes of Technology take admission on the basis of GATE Score. GATE is an annual exam that is conducted every year in the last week of January or the first week of February.

If you have not applied for GATE 2017 then you will have to apply for GATE 2018. Application process for the exam will start from September 2017. From 2017 and onwards GATE will be conducted at international locations as well.

Following are the countries where GATE exam will be conducted:

  • India
  • Bangladesh
  • Ethiopia
  • Nepal
  • Singapore
  • Sri Lanka
  • United Arab Emirates (U.A.E)

Since you have completed your Graduation you are eligible to apply for GATE. Selection is done strictly on the basis of merit. The application fee for Foreign candidates is 50 USD. 

However, there are some colleges that accept GRE scores as well for admission in ME courses.
