For comparing the syllabus, we will have to go through topic wise list for older and new syllabus. Major topics remain the same.

Yes. Absolutely. Your age will be 21 on 01-Aug-2017, so you can take the IES 2017 exam. Not 2016.

Hello Ankita Mam,
I am Rahul and presently in my final year of B.E. Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
I was going through the changes in the ESE pattern of 2017.
I also read in one of the links that the prelims would be held in second week of February.
In such a case what (if any) changes should we bring for preparation of ESE 2017.

Thank You for our time and concern.

There are no major changes in the preparation other than the change in syllabus. You need to go through the entire new syllabus and just pick out what's new and work on the accordingly. There are no other special instructions as of now.

@Ankita Katdare : so the 10 points will look something like this!! got this from quora (Amith singh) Check this link as well

https://www.quora.com/What-is-your-...n-scheme-and-syllabi-of-ESE-from-2017-onwards


Paper -1:- This paper is common for all the candidates. The questions asked will be from general studies and engineering aptitude, thus setting the stage for further competition.Although the general studies still remains the part of paper-1 , its scope has been severely curtailed. There is no separate syllabus for general studies and engineering aptitude. In all, there is combined syllabus given for paper-1. For GS portion , the syllabus given is "Current issues of national and international importance relating to social, economic and industrial development", this almost negates the necessity of old pattern of static GS portion from NCERT. But the problem is that we can't make this presumption about UPSC that everything will be from what it has given as syllabus. So , over the course of one year , at-least one reading can be given to NCERT books for basic understanding. This new pattern has heavily increased the importance of newspaper reading. Even you will be required to make notes from newspaper on a daily basis so that you understand the issues at hand. How to make notes from newspaper is a tricky affair. It will take some time to understand the relevance of news from examination point of view. This article will help you to grasp the techniques of note making from newspaper.

Engineering Aptitude covering Logical reasoning and Analytical ability: This should be manageable at the level of aspirants himself. You can also follow Mrunal - Competitive exams Preparation because he has lot of resources on this topic which he gives for other exam but it may be relevant here too. Logical reasoning and analytical ability should not be a big issue for any average engineer. You can buy any decent book from market , or wait for coaching institutes to release their material

Engineering Mathematics and Numerical Analysis : We all study this subject in first year of our colleges. Also , this topic is included in GATE examination for every branch. Pick up your first year books and start preparation now. Those who are in their first year of college should take this subject seriously.

General Principles of Design, Drawing, Importance of Safety: Civil and mechanical engineers study design and drawing in second year of their course so your friends in this department will helping you to get through this subject. I think coaching institutes will bring out study material as soon as possible

Standards and Quality practices in production, construction, maintenance and services: This belongs to the domain of Production and Civil engineers. Those who are still in graduation should really look into others branches as well.

Basics of Energy and Environment: This is the primary domain of Civil and Environmental engineers. In fact, environmental engineering takes the lead here.

Basics of Project Management: Again this is topic straight from civil engineering like CPM and PERT.

Basics of Material Science and Engineering: Every branch has this subjects , so each aspirants should study books of other department

Information and Communication Technologies: This is the domain of Computer Science and IT department. Apart from just using Facebook and WhatsApp try to learn the IT structure of these applications, atleast of those which you use regularly.

Ethics and values in Engineering profession: Here this most important question "Why did you become an engineer". What are the core values of an 'engineer'? How will you serve the society in this profession.?

Right now there is no study material which comprehensively covers all the topics of Paper-1. We will have to wait few months before the materials are out in the market. I will also try to update this article with the relevant links from other websites. At present, you will have to manage yourself till coaching institutes do their job. NPTEL is a good website to start learning basics of core engineering. UPSC wants you to study basics of almost every core branch and acquire interdisciplinary skills so that in future you will be better able to communicate with officers from other department.

You should be able to appreciate the technicalities of other branches of engineering. You should not shouldn't study in isolation. Take interest in basics of other department. Make friends from diverse background of specialization. After few months, coaching institutes will flood the market with study material for above topics. At this juncture, you will have to arrange such material which seems beneficial from point of view of Stage-1 examination.
