What is GATE COAP?

COAP, the Common Offer Acceptance Portal, was launched in 2017 with the aim of providing a unified platform for registered candidates seeking admission to MTech Programs in participating Institutes or job offers from participating Public Sector Units (PSUs). Initially, eight prestigious institutes, including IIT Bombay, IIT Bhubaneswar, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Indore, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, and IIT Roorkee, were part of COAP 2017. However, over the years, the initiative has expanded, with more than twenty-three institutes and a PSU (NPCIL) joining COAP to fill their MTech seats or job vacancies. Each year, the coordinating institute for COAP is selected from the GATE organizing institute of the preceding year.
