Trainer Mr. Abhijeet said that engineering aptitude questions tend to be based on engineering content. Students generally do not need to have outside knowledge on the numerical and verbal reasoning tests, but the tests examining their technical reasoning skills will assume a level of knowledge.
Some of the skills that employers are looking for in engineers and will therefore be tested through the engineering aptitude tests are:
- Critical thinking
- Ability to detect and analyze systematic themes in data
