About SSC JE (Junior Engineer) Examination

SSC JE stands for Junior Engineer. This examination is conducted every year by SSC (Staff Selection Commission) in order to recruit candidates for various engineering posts in several government departments and organizations. These departments primarily include those related to public works, water resources, defense, and other infrastructure sectors.

It includes candidates who are graduated from civil or mechanical or electrical engineering branches.

📌 Some of the departments are given below ↓ :

  • Central Public Works Department (CPWD),
  • Military Engineer Services (MES),
  • Border Roads Organization (BRO),
  • Central Water Commission (CWC),
  • Farakka Barrage Project (FBP),
  • Directorate of Quality Assurance (Naval),
  • National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO),
  • Central Water Power Research Station (CWPRS),
  • Director General of Border Roads (DGBR),
  • Department of Posts,
  • and, so on.

SSC JE Syllabus

The SSC JE exam consists of two papers: Paper 1 (Objective Type) and Paper 2 (Descriptive Type). The detailed syllabus for both papers is as follows:

Paper 1: Objective Type:
