    Are AMIE credentials accepted for recruitment by PSUs through GATE score?


    Interested in working in PSU? Wondering if AMIE credentials are acceptable? Find advice from experts on this page.

    AMIE is recognised as equivalent to an engineering degree. Is it recognised so for the purpose of recruitments in PSUs through GATE score also? Are there certain cases under which AMIE is not treated as equivalent to an engineering degree? In case so, then what are such cases?
    Experts: do respond.

    Yes, you are eligible to be considered in PSU after having cleared GATE followed by clearance of AMIE examination through Graduate Engineer Trainee scheme. However, you have to satisfy the other parameters as well such as matching your age as per the requirement of Employers, minimum percentage of marks not below than 65 percent in both the sections A and B. In addition to these, you have to clear the written test organised by the Management and subsequent clearance of the oral - interview.
    There are numerous organisations such as ONGC, IOCL, BCCL, NTPC etc, where special incentives are awarded to the aspirants having acquired high percentile in the GATE examination and they are given two additional increments in their pay- slabs. So, it would be a boon for an aspirant to have cleared the GATE test.
    Lastly, with regard to your query that AMIE is not being regarded equivalent to Engineering - degree is false notion. For all recruitment - purposes, this degree is at par with graduate Engineering - degree since AMIE is approved by ministry of HRD and so wipe out your prevailing doubt. Prepare your written - test with confidence so that you are selected in a PSU followed by clearance of your oral - interview.

    AMIE is a valid degree and it is equivalent to Bachelor degree in Engineering. However your question is very specific that whether you are eligible for PSU job via GATE or not. You are eligible for GATE but many PSUs like BHEL invites graduate engineers with 4 years regular course for its Engineer Trainee post. Then even if you have qualified GATE exam, you will not be called for interview by BHEL. Same is the case of ONGC and IOCL. Few companies consider AMIE as requisite qualification like NTPC, BEL, HAL etc. Therefore, you have to see the advertisement and read the eligibility criteria very carefully.

    I am attaching two of the advertisement by ONGC and IOCL. In case of ONGC, it is clearly mentioned in 'Note e' that AMIE is not the requisite qualification. In case of IOCL, it is written in para '4.1.1' that only 4 years regular course is eligible.

    Yes, AMIE holders are as equivalent to an engineering degree and they are eligible for PSUs jobs through valid good GATE scores. Some of the PSUs are not considering AMIE because every organization have own requirement management rules and also mention in advertisement. So, focus on notification but, all state PSC is consider AMIE.

    I passed AMIE in Oct 2016 and filled GATE 2017 but I am not eligible to any PSU through GATE PSU as most of PSU want FULL TIME REGULAR BTECH,also in apply form they not provide any option for AMIE only they provide BE/BTECH ,GAIL replied me via email that AMIE is not eligible for their ET 2017 on be/tech.As most of PSU eligibility is 65% and 65% in AMIE = 65 marks in GATE ,almost very very hard to gain 65% in AMIE mostly in core branch.I have 62% in AMIE But not eligible to fill any form of powergrid and NTPC as of 65% ..I have done Diploma In IT and passed Section B in only 4 semester in ELECTRICAL ENGG .Amie is wastage of time.Today is no value of AMIE only I gain is mouth who say degree is tough .The recoganisation for Amie is in court that is why it's value is like nothing upto when court says AMIE are equivalent to IIT
