    IES exam is for Indian engineering service. You can go with either mechanical, electrical or civil engineering as a optional subjects. you can score better in that as you are from engineering background

    As of 2013 pattern UPSC have changed their pattern for preliminary as no optional subject is there for prelims. you have to go for general studies. and GS covers all the subjects as whole for preparation.

    Your job will depend on number of vacancies available for that particular job.

    Wish you all the best.

    Dear Friend,

    The Acronym "IES" stands for Indian Engineering Services Examination. This is an UPSC Exam conducted every year by the Union Public Service Commission.

    The candidates who have completed graduation in engineering in any stream from any recognized university can appear for the IES Exam.

    being a CSE student , you can choose any one of the streams from the below mentioned streams :

    1) Civil Engineering

    2) Mechanical Engineering

    3) Electronics & Electrical Engineering

    4) Electronics & Communication Engineering

    Now when it comes to choose any one from these four streams , then its totally up to you that which stream you should choose because you have to decide that in which stream you can perform well and give your excel.

    As far as i am concerned , being a CSE Candidate you should choose Electronics & Communication Engineering as it resembles most with the Computer Science Engineering Stream.

    However , the final decision is yours and you can decide it better than anyone else.

    This is the information i have to the best of my knowledge regarding your query. Hope the information will help you to the extent you want.
