    Yes why not..???
    Eligibility for appearing in IES and IAS exam-
    Any student who have Graduation degree is eligible for appearing in IES and IAS exam.
    and now talking about AGE-
    Age must be between 21 to 30 years.

    As i think you qualify these condition so you are eligible for appearing in IES and IAS both examination.
    IES and IAS both exams are one of the toughest exam held in India so you have to prepare well for it .

    My friend INDIAN ENGINEERING SERVICES is a national level exam conducted by UPSC for the posts of engineers in various departments and offices in the government of India undertaking.
    This entrance exam is for the engineers who want their career in the public sector or government sector. You can be given posts like main engineer, junior research engineer, works engineer, main technician, etc. Based on your degree. You can go for mainly this exam after your graduation. The minimum eligibility criteria is that the candidate must be an Indian National and should be 21 to 30 years of age. Also you should have a bachelor degree in technology or engineering from a recognised university like b.tech or BE..
    Since you have completed your b.tech so you are very well eligible with 63% marks.

    Also it is seen that the candidates with b.tech ECE or machenical or electrical get better posts in this exam rather than others.
    Good luck.

    As per eligibility criteria mentioned for the IES exam only candidates who have pursued either mechanical, electrical, electronics and communication or civil engineering are allowed to apply for the same. So you will not be eligible for this exam. However there are various other Government jobs which you can apply for. You have options like applying for suitable positions in the railways, army, air force. If you are interested in working in the telecom sector then you could try in BSNL, MTNL. Options like applying to Electronic Data Processing department in government agencies like FACT, HAL etc and also research positions in government agencies like DRDO are available. Also you have options to apply for the civil service and the probationary officer post in banks. You can check employment news regularly to know about the various options available for you.

    See dear , basically only those who satisfies the criterion mentioned below are allowed to appear for the IES exam-

    1>those who have got Indian citizenship


    2>Those , whose age is between 21-30 years.


    3>those who have completed B.Tech/B.E from a recognized university by AICTE in any of the streams/branch below-
    a>Electronics and communication Engineering
    b>Electrical engineering
    c>Mechanical/production Engineering
    d>Civil engineering


    4>Those who are currently in final year of B.Tech can also appear.



    So as you have done B.tech in computer science stream , you cannot appear for the IES exam.
    But you have other UPSC exam which you can appear .
    you can appear for the IPS , IAS exams.



    GOOD LUCK
