IES Electrical Engineering Syllabus: Electrical engineering is an important part of Indian Engineering Services examination. The type of work performed by the Electrical engineers is largely based on the concern service or cadre they are appointed in. To get a sure-shot success in the competitive examinations of electrical engineering one should have a clear idea of upcoming written examination. Please find below the detailed syllabus of Electrical Engineering paper of all common IES/ESE examinations. Following provided syllabus is subject to both objective and conventional type papers. Kindly note that the standard of examination will be equivalent to electrical engineering degree syllabus of a recognized Indian university.
