    ya ,you can appear for both exams.ies is for indian engineering services,while ias is different from ies.ies is a combined competition exam conducted by UPSC every year to meet the requirements of technician,engineers,etc.if anyone who has completed his bachler degree in following branches is eligible for ies

    1)mechanical

    2)civil

    3)electrical

    4)elctronics and communication engineering..


    there are approximately 800 seats are filled every year,but number os seats may vary... after qualification of exam you have to appear in an interview.

    Actually the exam that is conducted for both the examinations is the same one and you would be required to choose one of the position on the basis of marks obtained by you
    in that common examination.That examination is called UPSC(Union public services commission) examination and it is really tough to crack this examination.
    It only requires hard work and patience to get to your desired position in this field.So, you should appear for civil services examination ans then on the basis of score obtained by you
    in that examination, you would be required to choose one position.
