    Dear, Don't Panic, Of-course you can apply for any Exam of UPSC after completions of your BE / B.Tech. Whether it belongs to Civil Services or IFS or IES or CDS. There are unlimited opportunities for Computer Science Graduates. But as a Computer Science Student don't give up Mathematics as your another subject which will help you in the time of preparation of Optional Subjects of UPSC Exams. So, go ahead....Good Luck..

    There are many examinations conducted by UPSC. Some of the exams like CDS,Civil services,CPF just require graduation. You can very well apply for these exams but you will be missing one exam named as Engineering Services Examination which requires engineers from Civil,Mechanical,Electronics and Electrical.

    Dear pal,
    • Indian Administrative service exam is conducted for admission of engineers for various engineering discipline available over there in central government.
    • The recruitment of engineers is under the discipline namely civil, mechanical, electrical, Electronics and telecommunication.
    • Exams are conducted under the above disciplines. The syllabus for the preparation includes those subjects which the aspirant with above degree has studied during their bachelor degree.
    • Aspirant with masters degree in physics, mathematics, radio communication, etc can also apply for the service exam.
    • The age criteria for the IAS, IPS holds good for IES too , a minimum of 21 years is required to attempt the exam and one can make attempt till they complete 30 years of age.
    • Being a computer engineer the exam do not suite you. You can apply for jobs in few public sector companies. A very large number jobs are available for you in private companies and you can make use of it. Companies that recruit you are TCS, CTS, microsoft, Infosis etc.
