SSC JE Syllabus
Civil Engineering

Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts JE (Junior Engineering) Examination every year for recruitment of junior engineers (JEs) for different-different government departments. The recruitment of SSC JE is done in three branches of engineering – Electrical, Civil and Mechanical Engineering.

SSC Junior Engineering (SSC-JE) exam has two papers – Paper-I and Paper-II. Candidates appearing for SSC JE exam should be aware of SSC JE syllabus along with the important topics. In this article, we have provided detailed SSC JE Syllabus for Civil Engineering.

Paper-I – Syllabus

(1) General Intelligence & Reasoning :

The Syllabus for General Intelligence would include questions of both verbal and non-verbal type. The test may include questions on analogies, similarities, differences, space visualization, problem solving, analysis, judgment, decision making, visual memory, discrimination, observation, relationship concepts, arithmetical reasoning, verbal and figure classification, arithmetical number series, etc. The test will also include questions designed to test the candidate‟s abilities to deal with abstract ideas and symbols and their relationships, arithmetical computations and other analytical functions.

(2) General Awareness :

Questions will be aimed at testing the candidate‟s general awareness of the environment around him/ her and its application to society. Questions will also be designed to test knowledge of current events and of such matters of everyday observations and experience in their scientific aspect as may be expected of any educated person. The test will also include questions relating to India and its neighbouring countries especially pertaining to History, Culture, Geography, Economic Scene, General Polity and Scientific Research, etc.

(3) General Engineering : Civil Engineering : 

Building Materials, Estimating, Costing and Valuation, Surveying, Soil Mechanics, Hydraulics, Irrigation Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Environmental Engineering.

Structural Engineering: Theory of Structures, Concrete Technology, RCC Design, Steel Design.
