2. Electrical engineering
3. Civil engineering
Check complete eligibility for ESE
Yes, final year engineering students too are eligible to apply for Indian Engineering Services, but they have to show the proof of passing the qualifying examination during the selection time as prescribed by UPSC. Only failure to do so will lead to rejection of selection.
Definitely you can give IES(now ES) exam in your final year of electronics and communication engineering degree. The applying Candidate for IES must be in the final year of their engineering or a pass out. The limit is on the age though. The applicant must be atleast 21 and at max 30 years of age as on 1.1.20. There is a relaxation for those candidates who have served for government of 5 years.
