    Re: Can a chemical engineering graduate appear in IES exam?

    hi
    Im sorry to say but chemical engineering graduates are not allowed to give the IES exam. The reason being this that only the engineers from 4 engineering branches are eligible of giving the IES exam
    These branches are
    Electrical engineering
    Electronics and communication engineering
    Mechanical engineering
    Electrical engineering
    And as chemical engineering is not included in these branches, therefore you are not eligible

    Hello

    YES YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR APPLYING IN UPSC INDIAN ENGINEERING EXAMS.

    The qualification required for applying in engineering service examination is a engineering degree in any stream.
    But the issue with engineering service exams is that irrespective of any stream you will have to give exams of subject
    1)Mechanical Engineering
    2)Electrical Engineering
    3)Electronics and communication Engineering.
    4)Civil Engineering.

    So although you have studied chemical engineering ,you will have to choose any one of the above four and that is pathetic.
    Now you visit the website of UPSC
    www.upsc.gov.in

    Also a link


    http://upsc.gov.in/general/faq.htm

    Also a old notification of engineering service exam is uploaded for your reference

    Re: Can a chemical engineering graduate appear in IES exam?

    Hi Buddy,

    No, I'm sorry to say but you cannot apply for IES belonging to Chemical Technology in Graduation. Only specified branches are allowed to take part in IES examination such as

    1. Civil Engineering
    2. Mechanical Engineering
    3. Electrical and Electronics Engineering
    4. Electronics and Communication Engineering

    But, if you're interested then you can opt out for govt services such as IAS or IPS, depending upon your interest as you're not eligible for IES.

    The details for IAS or IPS are

    Education : You must be a Graduate in any stream from a recognized university.

    Age Limits : Minimum age is 21 years and maximum age is for Gen - 30 years, OBC - 33 years, SC/ST - 35 years.

    No of Attempts : Gen - 4, OBC - 7, SC/ST - No Restriction.

    IAS examination is conducted in 3 phases :

    1.Civil Service Aptitude Test (Prelims)
    2.Main Exams
    3.Interview

    Exam pattern:

    Preliminary Examination would consist of two papers- Paper I and Paper II.
    Syllabus for CSAT as proposed by UPSC
    (Paper 1) (200 marks) - Duration : Two hrs
    (Paper II) (200 marks) Duration : Two hrs

    The final interview will be of 300 marks.

    As you're not eligible for IES, depending upon your interest you can choose either IAS/IPS or try for some other jobs in your field of chemical technology.

    All the best
    .

    Re: Can a chemical engineering graduate appear in IES exam?

    You are eligible if you have a degree in engineering from any stream of engineering.But the papers will be only among CIVIL,MECHANICAL,ELECTRONICS AND ELECTRICAL.If you think you can qualify the exam from any of these papers,you can apply.Or else it would be loss of time and effort for you.You need to start from beginning for these subjects as the IES questions needs deep concepts and simple knowledge acquired is totally useless.
