    Re: Can students of Computer Science engineering background apply for IES?

    As to be eligible for the IES exam, which is carried out by the UPSC a candidates need to have done a B.Tech from a reputed university or institution. This is a National level examination. Not all B.Tech candidates are qualified to appear in the IES exam. In your case, with a B.Tech in computer Science won’t suffice for the IES exam. The candidates who have done their B.Tech in Electrical, Civil, and Mechanical with ECE are only eligible for the IES exam. Along with this, the candidates who are having an M.Sc degree in certain specific subjects like Wireless Communication, Electronics etc can apply for the IES. Students with M.Sc in Radio Physics and Engineering as a core subject are also taken in for certain specific post through the IES exam. The age of the candidates should not be less than 21 years of age and also the age should not go beyond 30 years.

    Re: Can students of Computer Science engineering background apply for IES?

    As you are having a degree in engineering, you are eligible for applying the IES. This can be possible with a specialization of Electrical, Electronics & communication, Mechanical or Civil engineering. The age should be with the limit 21-30 years. The candidate who is an Indian can apply. Physical fitness is an essential factor for those who are applying. The test is mainly conducting for recruiting to services. For the staffing of Indian Engineering Services UPSC is conducting the combined competitive exams. This is done in many central government departments.

    No you are not eligible for IES because B.Tech students who studied electrical, mechanical and communication can only apply for it. Sudents of B.Tech in computer science are not eligible.

    Re: Can students of Computer Science engineering background apply for IES?

    IES stands for Indian Engineering services examination and this examination is Conducted by UPSC, Every year, To apply for this examination you must have completed your B.tech degree from any one of the discipline:

    ~~ Civil Engineering
    ~~ Mechanical Engineering
    ~~ Electrical Engineering

    Not all candidates are eligible to apply for this examination, but only above discipline candidates are eligible for IES.

    To apply for this examination your age should between 21 to 30 years, Upper age relaxation is applicable for SC/ST/OBC Candidates, there is no restrictions in number of attempts to apply for IES Examination, you can appear for this examination many times. For this year IES Examination notification was already published and the examination is conducted in this month i.e on 15/June/2012.

    But you have completed your Engineering degree course in computer background, so you are not eligible for IES Examination because this subject is not available in IES Examination.

    But as per the UPSC, any Engineering candidates are eligible for IES, But you have to choose any one of the subject, but i think it is difficult for you to prepared these subjects. So i suggest you please apply for some other examination.

    ~~ Section I consisting only of objective types of questions and
    ~~ Section II of conventional papers.

    Hey friend,

    This exam is being conducted by UPSC(Union Public Service Commission) and this exam is one of the competitive exams in India.

    This exam is conducted every year for candidates to join in Indian Engineering Organizations


    Can students of Computer Science engineering background apply for IES?
