# GATE Computer Science Engineering Syllabus 2024 – CSE Chapters & Topics

GATE Computer Science Engineering Syllabus 2024: Check out the latest GATE Syllabus for Computer Science Engineering (CSE). Computer Science subject is the one of the papers in GATE 2021 Exam. Earlier we’ve provided GATE Exam pattern 2021, Now we are providing GATE Syllabus 2024 of Computer Science Paper. CS is the subject code of GATE Computer Science Engineering Exam. Below we’ve provided GATE Computer Science Engineering Syllabus and weight-age for GATE   2021 Exam. Here you can see Computer Science Engineering applicable chapters and topics for GATE exam 2021.

## GATE Paper Pattern & Marks Weightage

GATE paper questions are divided into three sections.  As given below GATE marks are distributed for each section. 70% of the marks covers the core subject of the GATE Exam. i.e here Core Subject is Computer Science Engineering.

GATE 2018 – 2021
