    Before starting preparations you need to understand what basically the structure of the exam will be. You will need to attempt two sections. In the first part be prepared for questions which will test your general ability and also general studies. In the general studies section there will be questions on the Mechanical stream. In the second part there will more conventional type question in the Mechanical stream. The General Studies section you need to be prepared for two sections on the Mechanical stream itself. In the first Paper there will questions on Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, Fluid Mechanics etc. The second paper will be on Machine design, Production Engineering, Engineering Materials etc. You must note down all the areas and make sure to cover each of them. The UPSC site has all the required information on the syllabus.

    Re: Syllabus of the Mechanical Engineering stream for IES exam

    This being competitive exam it is important that you donot miss out on any of the areas. You need to cover each of the areas in detail. So for that it would good to prepare a timetable. For this list out the topics first. You have two areas to prepare in. You need to prepare in general studies section as well as mechanical stream. In Mechanical it will be mostly what you covered in your graduation. There will be two parts in this too. In the first part you need to know about Fluid mechanics, Thermodynamics etc. The other part will cover various engineering areas like Production engineering, Machines etc. You can visit the UPSC site for details.

    Re: Syllabus of the Mechanical Engineering stream for IES exam

    basically IES exam deals with not specific but it also deals with generalist approach. first you should know about structure of exam. it is composed of one general studies paper and second one is specific related to your branch. general studies involve aptitude reasoning english general studies current affair and second paper related to tour branch. there are different subject like thernal engineering, thermidynamics etc. you can see detail information on

    Re: Syllabus of the Mechanical Engineering stream for IES exam

    IES is a Indian Engineer Service is a better civil service exam after completing graduation degree (B.E/B.Tech) .Indian Engineer Service entrance exam conducted every year by Union Public service commission.

    IES entrance exam paper consist in two parts:-

    i) Section - I :- Section -I question mainly based on general english and general awerness .

    ii) Section -II :- Section -II question mainly based on general studies in Mechanical engineering as well as general machines.

    Syllabus of Mechanical engineering stream for IES entrance exam:----

    1) Theory of Machines

    2) Machine design

    3) Strength of Material

    4) Engineering Material

    5) Manufacturing science

    Paper of IES exam totally based on Mechanics works like forming process ,Welding process,Metal casting process etc.
