    Yes , civil service exam is suitable for Engineering but some selective departments like electronics , Mechanical , civil , electrical .

    Because for optional subject , the other department have not matching subject .So if you can choose the other subject then you must take one year for extra subject .I have listed the optional subject name-

    Agriculture
    Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science
    Anthropology
    Botany
    Chemistry
    Civil Engineering
    Commerce and Accountancy
    Economics
    Electrical Engineering
    Geography
    Geology
    History
    Law
    Management
    Mathematics
    Mechanical Engineering
    Medical Science
    Philosophy
    Physics
    Political Science and International Relations
    Psychology
    Pubic Administration
    Sociology
    Statistics
    Zoology

    For the case of preliminary exam engineer are very strong compare to other department .They have good knowledge of English , GK and Mathematics .

    So they will take some benefit from others .

    If you are a engineer in a big company and earning in lacs then its not suitable for you but if you are jobless and just having a engineering degree and getting the offers of 10000 per month job and working 2hours daily then it is suitable for you so if you are planning to apply for the same then see your status first and then apply for the same.
    Here is the eligibility criteria for the same as follows-
    Age required is 21 to 30 years of age.
    Qualification must be a graduate in any discipline from a recognised university.
    There is no percentage required to apply for the same.
    Two stages are there-
    CSAT
    MAINS.
    Civil services aptitude test is the full form of CSAT.
    If you qualify the CSAt hen you need to appear for the mains exam where you need to choose the optional subjectys.
    In CSAT 400 marks paper will be there, 2 papers 200 marks each.

    Re: Is Civil Services suitable for Engineers?

    why not???


    why not it is suitable for engineers ,means yes definitely suitable for the engineers and all those who have desire to do a reputed job in govt sector.

    dear friend,

    look ! that no work is good or no work is bad /suitable for you or anybody ,the matter is on how much level you love your job or how to doing your work.

    so definitely it is suitable for the engineers also.

    infect it will beneficial to you as compared to your engineering work.

    you can understand it by one example like, if you are a very good engineer even than you have no any power

    outside your working area and in govt works that means you are powerless but if you join the civil services

    than you are being a well known person to the common people and also have the powers to take part in governance.

    so the decision is your ....yes the question rising in your mind is that if you join civil that what is the benefit of your engineering degree than i wanna tell you that it is not a waste for you if join civil because to join civil services you must ave a graduation degree and it is in use to get the job so no matter of wasting your graduation degree..

    so don't worry and and I advised you if you have potential to get this job then you should try because as you know that to getting a job is not very easy .


    so to become a civil servant/to get a civil service you must give the examination of civil services conducted by UNION PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION every year.

    to apply for the examination you have to apply online mode only because there is no any other mode of application will be accepted from upsc.

    website for online application:- http://www.upsconline.gov.in

    for further details about the examination visit the official website of upsc:- http://www.upsc.gov.in


    hope my answer will provide you satisfaction.


    Good luck @

    hi,
    dear friend Civil Services are suitable for engineers.It depends upon your expectations from your job.If you want to contribute to welfare of society through administration then yes IAS is best job profile for any person who want to contribute to development of society and serve equality.

    But if you have ambitions in doing well in field of engineering and technology then civil services are not meant for you.So understand your priorities and ambitions and then choose accordingly whether you want to join civil services or you want to go to technical field.

    Thank you and all the best
