This area is divided into a number of circles or regions which are the administrative units of the department. Each circle is headed by the Superintending Engineer (SE) who is the administrative and professional head of the circle. Each circle is divided into a number of divisions which are the executive units of the department. Each such division is under an Executive Engineer (EE) who is responsible for the execution and management of all work in the division. Each division is further subdivided into a number of sub-divisions each under charge of SDE.
  • SDE has to execute, supervise and manage the works falling under their charge and have to maintain the quality and progress of works.
  • Usually each district is under a SDE designated as District Engineer.

Who is JE?

  • JE is the incharge of a sectionobtained after dividing a sub-division.
  • JE has to stay at the site of works and has to supervise, maintain quality and progress of the works under his section.
  • They also have to maintain accounts of materials, tools and plants, labour etc.
  • JE has work supervisors (or work inspectors) under them to assist them.

State Engineering Examinations

  • State commissions in the states are responsible for the recruitment of SDE and JE in various engineering departments of the state government.
  • A highly competitive environment has been set up in nearly all the states across India for the posts of SDE and JE, since these posts hold a good repute in the society and offer a high financial remuneration and other benefits.
  • From state to state and from department to department, the mode of examination (offline or online), type of examination (written or interview), pattern of questions (objective or conventional), type of questions are varied.
