What is the syllabus for JSSC JE?

The Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission conducts the JSSC JE examination to recruit candidates for the position of junior engineers in the government of Jharkhand for various departments. The examination requires you to attempt two papers and has a vast syllabus. Though it may seem tough to crack the examination, with the right guidance from BYJU’S Exam Prep, candidates can track the right path to qualify for the JSSC JE Exam. If you are an aspiring candidate and are planning to appear for the examination, here is the detailed syllabus for both papers to help you plan for the examination. 

JSSC JE Syllabus

The JSSC JE syllabus shall have only ine stage of examination comprising of two papers.

  • Classification of Steel

Paper 2: 

Selected candidates from Paper 1 are allowed to appear in Paper 2, which is an elective paper. This paper is specifically for graduate-level civil, mechanical and electrical engineering. Though the topics remain the same as Paper 1, the questions require understanding beyond the basic level and in-depth studying. As mentioned, it has three sections (Civil, Mechanical and Electrical) and candidates have to appear in the section of their specialisation that they choose as their elective. There are 120 questions and two hours to attempt the questions on the candidate’s chosen specialisation. In this paper, the syllabus can be divided into: 

Civil Engineering: 

  • Building Materials
  • Estimating
  • Costing & Valuation
  • Surveying
  • Soil Mechanics
  • Hydraulics
