what is full gorm of JE and what his role in this job

Smrity 20th Mar, 2020


JE is a Junior Engineer and the work profile depends on company and organization where the work is allotted and the profile given but in general the work of a junior engineer is to provide support to engineers of the organization they are working in. The tasks assigned maybe related to gathering data and information, documentation etc.

These tasks are related to the work of the engineering team and thus they have to perform the tasks provided by the supervising engineers.

I hope this makes things clear.

All the best!

The syllabus KPCL AE JE exams for Electrical Engineering is given below :

Basic Electronics.
Measurement and measuring instruments.
Basic Electrical Engineering Concepts.
Utilization of Electrical Energy.
Power Electronics & Drives.
Magnetic Circuit.
AC Fundamentals.
Network Theory.

Level of the examination is moderate to tough and competition is very high so you will have to study very hard.

Salary, perks, post and profile will be assigned once you will get selected and in my option you should not focus on these thing currently and you should just focus in preparation.

Good luck.
