No. of Questions
40 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Quant
  • Section 2: Core-HeatTransfer/Design/CompSCi (Any One)
Interview Experience
Quant is going to be standard CAT type .Time Crunching is going to be the key. Give as many practice tests as possible. Standard near level CATFor Core: Relatively Easy , Heat transfer was quite simple with more stress on conduction GATE Book is sufficient.
Interview Tips
Keep track of tome and sections . DO read instructions carefully,try answering as many as possible in Quant as that's going to be the deciding factorWeightage:Quant: 80%Core:20%

Very relaxed, very comfortable and sytematic. They were eager to know about you and would like to hear the three words in any answer "ETHICS>INTEGRITY>INNOVATION"Speak it out in Tell me about yourself and you're in for sure.
Interview Tips
Kind of said above,  Make sure bring Edison in conversation they like to hear about it
Round 3

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Why Dual Degree and Mech
  • Question 2: Subject you love the most and why
  • Question 3: Strength Of material:1. Stress and pressure?difference?
  • Question 4: Find the stress and failure condition for a truss system?
  • Question 5: Pressure vessel Thick and derivation ?
  • Question 6: Buckling Derivation ?
  • Question 7: Dual Degree Project ?
Interview Experience
They were looking for depth rather than width of your knowledge. They want derivations not final results, even of you make a mistake they'll help you rectify that. Just show your enthusiasm for Mechanical Engineering.
Interview Tips
IT's going to be the deciding factor as only those who clear technical round will be called for HR. If your performance is good in tech interview than HR will be a cakewalk else it will be trickier.Please give in 3 days preparation for subject you like and 3 hrs for reading about GE. Try to integrate your subject expertise to their products...... might sound a bit too much but they have so many, you could find one and .... you're through...ALL THE BEST....

General Electric [ GE ] edison engineer interview

Pranav MulayFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Madras for EDISON ENGINEER role at General Electric [ GE ]
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Test Interview Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Had a lot of technical stuff in the resume and edited out the co-curriculars. But I guess was shortlisted based on my performance in the test, as a lot of others with stronger resumes (technically) were not shortlisted.
Interview Tips
GE while shortlisting engineering talent at IIT's doesn't care much about the extra-curriculars. And we tend to have a lot of them on our resumes. Would suggest emphasizing the projects done and the impact of those in the resumes.
Round 2

Test

Test Sections
    Interview Experience
    The test was basically around the fundamentals of Mechanical Engg. Not very difficult but tested the candidate on fundamental concepts.
    Interview Tips
    A basic prep of relevant coursework should suffice.
    Round 3

    Interview

    Interview Experience
    A lot of emphasis on my coursework and Dual Degree Project. Most of the discussion revolved around the DDP and adjacent fields. Apart from the technical details the interviewer curious about the impact that the project would finally create. This, as I understand now, is a requirement for the profile we're hired into.
    Some guys had two rounds of technical interviews but in my case the interviewer after one round had made it very clear that I had got the job. I later understood that most of the people had two rounds and very few had a single round.
    Interview Tips
    Steer the discussion toward your strengths. The interviewers are generally very friendly, but don't bullshit them as most of them are individuals who occupy engineering leadership roles at GE's Bangalore Center.
    Be prepared to do some math on a paper, I was asked to formulate some of the stuff I was talking about my DDP. If you don't know something it is better to shut up than speculate.
    Round 4

    Interview

    Interview Experience
    Was basically a formality, the interviewer chatted for a while about what I had done at IIT, what I liked/disliked about my college. Asked me to rate myself on a few things. Asked my rationale behind the evaluation.
    Interview Tips
    In my opinion the HR interview is just a show. The technical interview IS the interview. If get that right you're through.

        Round 1

        Technical Interview

        Interview Experience
        I was asked to explain each and every project in my CV and was asked cross questions. The interviewer also asked questions based on the topics related to my projects. I was also asked about various softwares I know which I mentioned in my resume. Most of the questions asked were related to hardware and practical applications. Most of the interviewers ask us to choose a topic in which we are comfortable and then ask us questions in that topic.
        Interview Tips
        Be very confident and also very clear with the resume. Be prepared with the major subject of the projects. For example, if you have done a project on designing a controller for some system, then be thorough with control systems part.
        When the interviewer asks if you have anything to ask him, ask him very specifically about his work and his team and it would be nice if the interviewer is asked some questions from you in return.
        I even asked him the answers to most of the questions he asked me and also which I couldn't answer. He clarified my dubts and we had a great time.

        For design: Mainly FEA in interview in depth knowledge is required, through with all aspect of projects
        Core: went through all books again. Read summery of topics, went through GATE/IES materials in LAN. Projects All reports, PPts.
        In depth knowledge, through with your projects and whatever you write in resume. Resume is one of the key things. if not in shortlisting then at least in final interview it will matter a lot. Take help from everyone while writing resume. Take feedback from maximum people all around you. Practice a lot it will boos your confidence. Finally all comes down to your confidence and how you perform in interview.
