IES Exam


This IES Syllabus for Mechanical Engineering is as per the IES exam notification published in the month of March. The syllabus divided into two parts deals with both objective and conventional type questions on the subject. This pattern of study offers the most conclusive stance into the subjects covering all major concepts of mechanical engineering with relevant theories and also covering computation.
