Karnataka PSC Assistant Engineer (Mechanical) Syllabus

The Public Service Commission was constituted under the provisions of the Constitution of India on 18-05-1951. In accordance with the provisions of clause 14 of the Public Service Commission Regulations 1950, the staff of the Public Service Commissioner as it stood on 18-05-1951, was continued as the nucleus of the staff of the Public Service Commission.

The Office of the Public Service Commission was located in the “United India” buildings, Bangalore City, till 20-05-1951. Since the accommodation fell short of the actual requirements of the Commission, its office was shifted to “Balabrooie”, on Palace Road, Bangalore, on 21st May 1951 and remained there upto 7th November 1956. Later it was shifted to the north wing of “ Atarakacheri” a portion of the High Court Building and continued there upto January 1968. Thereafter it was shifted to the present premises of “Park House” situated on the north west side of Vidhana Soudha.

The Karnataka Public Service Commission is invites applications for the posts of Assistant Engineer posts. Hence, the aspirants who are going to appear the KPSC Assistant Engineer are advised to check the details below.

Here we updated the Syllabus for the post of KPSC Assistant Engineer. So, candidates can check the below Syllabus details and practice well before appearing the test.
