Interview Questions for Engineering Graduates

Bank PO Interview Questions for Engineering Graduates


For last few years engineers have been cracking IBPS / RRB / SBI and other Public Sector Bank exams in large numbers. There are various reasons for this surge, the primary being – increased dependence of Banking on technology which has led to favourable conditions for engineers even for generalist officers’ job.  The other reasons are:

  • More and more engineering graduates are being attracted towards lucrative Banking career
  • Engineers are more likely to score higher in Quantitative and Logical Reasoning sections of MCQ exams.

Although engineers do get a competitive edge in written exam, the personal interview of Bank PO is a different ball game altogether. Engineers are typically asked a certain set of questions that are completely different from graduates of other streams. These interview questions consist of personal question related to engineering background and technical questions related to their specific stream.

We have listed here Bank PO Interview questions that are generally put to the engineering graduates. This list consists of actual questions that have been previously asked in interviews and shared by our students who had appeared in personal interviews of public sector banks.
