The UPSC Syllabus for IES/ESE Main Exam is different for different Engineering Categories and the syllabus is same for the ESE Prelims Paper II (objective type questions on a specific engineering category).

The UPSC Mains Exam has two papers (Paper I and Paper II) on each engineering category of the IES and there are four engineering categories in the IES under which candidates will be recruited for various services/posts. The four categories are as mentioned below.

  1. Civil Engineering
  2. Mechanical Engineering
  3. Electrical Engineering
  4. Electronics and Telecommunication

The UPSC IES/ESE Syllabus for the Category I Civil Engineering is as given below. The syllabus for Paper II of the Preliminary (Stage-I Examination – objective type) and Paper-I and Paper – II of the Main (Stage-II Examination-Conventional type) is same.

Candidates can find below the list of important topics of each engineering category and the detailed UPSC Syllabus.
