Technical Questions Asked In SSB Interview [Must Know]
List of technical questions asked in ssb interview. SSB is meant to ascertain your projected behaviour in the context of a potential leader and an officer material. Hence, the process of assessment and selection is very similar for various types of entries, including for candidates applying for technical entries
During the course of your interview, the IO might ask some basic questions relating to your technical stream. These questions will be more generic in nature and can be easily handled by you if you have carried out some research pertaining to your stream in the context of the defence forces.
We are listing out a few probable areas with respect to various technical fields that the IO may like to broach upon. This list is by no means exhaustive; you may develop further on similar lines to make it more comprehensive.
Civil Engineers: Fundamentals of construction and architecture, meaning and role of Nominal Ground Pressure, parameters for constructing earthquake resistant buildings, latest trends in architectural designs, how to improve your effectiveness by using your CE knowledge in respect of your envisaged role in the forces (laying of mechanical bridges, laying and breaching mine fields, construction of shelters during peace and war, operating water expedients during operations and rescue/ relief operations in aid of civil authorities, establishing and manning water points during operations, demolition of bridges and built up areas, etc), latest trends in various engineering equipment like dozers, earthmovers, mines, bridges, etc.
Mechanical Engineers: Fundamentals of driving and maintenance of vehicles, mechanics for improving volumetric efficiency, Direct Injection engines, role of catalytic convertors, Anti Braking System, enhancing fuel efficiency of engines, aerodynamics and streamlining, meaning of EURO norms, etc. How can you use your mechanical engineering knowledge to contribute towards the upkeep of the equipment fleet in the services (preparing maintenance schedules, speed governance, repair and recovery of transports during peace and operations, training of users, forecasting, demanding and maintain inventory of spares, etc).
