GATE 2019 Textile Engineering and Fiber Science (TF) exam is going to be held in February 2019 and will be organised by IIT Madras. TF is the subject code of GATE Textile Engineering and Fibre Science Exam. The GATE Textile Engineering and Fiber Science is one of the less pursued branches in GATE exams of all times, due to lack of information in terms of scope, guidance and study material, and thus candidates find difficulties in this branch.
Textile Engineering and Fiber Science include natural and man-made materials, the interaction of materials with machines, safety and health, energy conservation, and waste and pollution control. Textile engineering deals with the application of scientific and engineering principles to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile, and apparel processes, products, and machinery. Textile engineering is an important part of the textile industry. Textile industry involves design, research, manufacturing, and distribution of fabric. It involves the garment, color and fabric lines of industries.
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) 2019 exam will be held on February 2-3 and February 9-10, 2019. In this article we will let you know about the GATE 2019 syllabus with their topics for Textile Engineering and Fiber Science, GATE 2019 exam pattern, marks weightage, reference books and some good and healthy preparation tips.
Eligibility Criteria for GATE 2019 Textile Engineering and Fiber Science Exam
- A candidate has to have a qualifying degree of B.E/B. Tech.
- Candidates who are in their final year with no backlogs can apply for GATE (TF).
- To apply for GATE TF there is no age limit.
GATE Syllabus for Textile Engineering and Fabric Science (TF)
The GATE TF 2019 contains two main subjects and that is-
|1.||Engineering Mathematics||Linear Algebra, Calculus, Vector Calculus, Differential Equation, Probability and Statistics, Numerical Methods.|
|2.||Textile Engineering and Fiber Science||Textile Fibers, Yarn Manufacture and Yarn Structures & Properties, Fabric Manufacture and Fabric Structure & Properties, Textile Testing, Chemical Processing.|
GATE TF Paper Pattern & Marks Weightage
The question is divided into three separate sections, below given is the table which will let you know the GATE 2019 exam pattern and marks weightage in the description.
|GATE 2019 Paper Sections||GATE Marks Distribution|
|Subject Questions (Core Subject) TF||70% of the total marks.|
|Engineering Mathematics||15% of the total marks.|
|General Aptitude (GA)||15% of the total marks.|
General Aptitude Questions:
The question paper contains 10 questions of general aptitude out of total 65 question and these 10 questions carry the total of 15 marks out of 100.
Textile Fibers (TF) Questions:
This section contains the two parts “Tech+Maths” the number of questions this section have is 55 out of 65. The marks are also divided into two parts (70+15) respectively out of 100.
Distribution of Marks:
The multiple choice question carrying 1 or 2 marks question. Negative marking is also there so the questions that is of 1 mark and the answer is wrong then ⅓ marks will be deducted, and the questions that carry 2 marks and the answer is wrong then ⅔ marks will be deducted for that questions.
