    You have a great chance to join Indian defence after completion of your B.Tech.
    You can go through UES (university entry scheme).
    In IAF you can appear for Engineering knowledge test.
    You can apply for CDS as well.

    yes sir,
    he may apply for TES(technical entry scheme) after 12th if he will be getting more than 70% in PCM aggregate, and age lies b\w 16.5-19.5yrs.
    It is direct entry means he has to give only SSB there isn't any written exam for this.

    but he may join defence services after his graduation in engineering,
    UES(university entry scheme) : a 3rd and 4th yr on engineering may apply for this if having age limit 19-24 for 3rd and 19-25 for 4th yr student.
    TGS(technical graduate scheme): after completing his engineering he mat apply for this for the post of engineer .
    age limit is 23-27yrs, engineering in noticified stream.

    all the above mentioned entry's form are available twice in a yr.

    all these entry may lead a candidate to all 3 forces but they have to fill up different forms for forces, advertised separately...

    all the best...
