IES (Indian Engineering Services) is conducted every year for aspirants willing to make their career in engineering field. ESE is conducted to recruit candidates in Indian Navy, Indian Defense, Indian Railways, etc., as an Officer engineer. IES is held to select candidates from four different branches viz. Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering. We have mentioned here the list of books that can be helpful while preparing for ESE Mechanical Engineering.
