Details of types of questions asked in each of the sections:
The question were mostly related with the engineering basics. The test involved questions from RCC,STEEL & PSC.
Some of the questions were from the codal provisons of the indian standards others involved technical reasoning. few
questions had multiple statements and the options were a combination of true & false statements just like in GATE
exam.Most of the questions didnt even needed to be solved you can just tell the answer if you know certain basic rules like
the one with the truss problems wherein you can just tell by seeing the loading which member will carry the maximum
load and which member will have zero load. The exam didnt even require a calculator to be used though the examiners
insisted to bring one at the beginning.The overall exam was really easy and didnt need any Mtech qualification to solve the
questions, if you are thorough with the basics you will do just fine.
The questions asked to me were mostly about the earthquake effects on tall buildings as i had mentioned that i was going
to do a dissertation on tall buildings as a part of my MTech course. Then a question was on SFD and BMD of a bent
cantilever. Few were from the code like the stress block from indian standards. few IS code numbers like the one for
ductile detailing and the purpose of ductile detailing.
No. of Candidate applied And Points that Worked in Favour
The interview started with the same old question "TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF ?" just the break the ice. few questions
popped from my intro like my project from BTech. Finally while leaving they asked if i would take the posting on site
anywhere in india not as a site engineer but as a project supervisor i will have my own office on the site many people
would work under me etc(Tricky question)
