HieÖ..I am Shantanu from NIT jalandhar. I just want to share my BHEL placement process experience through this platform. First, there was a written exam
The exam contains 240 questions.
120 from Technical Side (60 from Electrical Engg & 60 from General Engg)
120 from Non Technical Side (35 from English, 35 from Aptitude & 50 from Maths)
Technical Paper is purly Numerical Based and contains the questions like below:
Electrical Engg paper has around
1) 15 Questions from Electrical Machines out of this 10 numericals.
2) 8 Numericals from Control System
3) 4 Numericals from Instrumentation
4) 15 Questions from Electrical Power out of this 8 numericals
5) 8 Questions from Circuit and field theory
6) 10 Questions from Electronics (Power & Digital)
General Engg paper has around
1) 35 Questions from mechanical engg
2) 15 Questions from Physics
3) 10 Questions from other general engg
Non Technical paper is very easy.
To solve this paper, speed contains an important factor. We have only 35 seconds to solve a question.
So be fast and All the Best.
Luckily I cleared the written round and I was so happy after knowing this. Those who cleared the written round were called for an interview. Finally I went for the interview.
They started with the question Ė
Q. Why I want to join BHEL.
Though I was not prepared for this question, as I was expecting technical questions, but I tried answering that I always wanted to join BHEL, I am very adjustable, and I can perform well in the areas in which they will train me. But the people were not much satisfied; they also asked me to give a solid example for my adjustability.
Q. They asked about my family, fatherís job, brother-sisters etc..
The people seem to be very lenient while asking, infact some-times I felt that they are not taking any interview. We were simply chatting, laughing in the interview room.
Q. Next they asked what preparations I have done for the interview.
I told I have checked the BHELís site and collected some information about it. Next I have prepared my area of interest i.e. Digital electronics. My 2nd area of interest was Microprocessors 8085 and they started with that.
Q. What do mean by 8085.
I told itís the serial no. of the device given by the company Intel. But they were not satisfied and told it must have some meaning. I told may its 8 because itís a 8-bit processor and about other digits no idea.
Q. How many types of microprocessors do we have?
I told 8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit.
Q. Do we have any 64 bit processor?
I never heard of it so told so.
Q. What is RISC/CISC?
I answered RISC is reduced instruction set computing and CISC is complex instruction set computing.
Q. Whatís the difference between them?
I told RISC is generally used for high speed switching operations and CISC is for general purpose like 8085.
Q. Do we use microprocessors nowadays?
I told we generally go for microcontrollers these days.
Q. What are microcontrollers?
I said it has memory inbuilt in it apart from microprocessor architecture.
Q. What do you think the CPU we use has microprocessor in it.
I told it has but not only microprocessor. It has other components also.
Q. What do you think the other components are?
The answer of this question doesnít click me there so I told no idea.
Q. What do think Pentium uses RISC or CISC?
I was not sure with this so answered we can use RISC
Q. They told donít tell we can, what we exactly use
I told truly that specifically I donít know.
They stopped with this. I felt that they were not very specified with some questions but the best part was I never go nervous and maintained a smile through-out. They have not at all mentioned about final year project or any other curriculum subject. My advice to electronics people is Ė try having a different area of interest other than microprocessors because in my batch some 7-8 electronics people came for interview all having same microprocessor as area of interest. The people got little bugged up with and asked some people donít you have some different subjects.Similar Threads:
