ESE are the civil services that meet the technical and managerial functions of the Government of India. Like most countries, the Government of India recruits its civil servants and officials on the basis of merit, the middle management positions in the bureaucracy are filled through competitive exams.
IES officers are selected by the union government on the recommendations made by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).A combined four-stage competitive examination (comprising six tests), called the Engineering Services Examination (ESE) is conducted by the UPSC for recruitment to the Indian Engineering Services.
At least a bachelor’s degree in Engineering (B.E./B.Tech./A.M.I.E./B.sc.) from a recognised university or equivalent. M.Sc degree or its equivalent with Wireless Communications, Electronics, Radio Physics or Radio Engineering as special subjects also acceptable for certain services / posts only.
Age limits 21–30 years on 1 august of the year of Engineering Services Examination.

Here in Eduzphere we all believe that Big results require big ambitions, so we work accordingly to generate excellent results.The very first time in the history of TRICITY (Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali) the students that are scoring 1st rank in GATE, competitive examinations and recruitment examinations, belong to our institute. As we have already claimed that we do not have any branch or franchisees, our institute displays the results that are purely produced by us. Some of our Eduz scoring high ranks in IES, GATE, JE, SDE, PSU, and other competitive examinations are:
