    Re: Can I join Indian Air Force while pursuing Computer Science & Engineering?

    No my friend.
    You have to be in the last semester of the graduation to be eligible for the Indian air force exam. There are mainly two exams through which you can go for the Indian air force. The main one is CDS conducted by the UPSC but the other one is AFCAT conducted by the Indian air force academy itself.
    To be eligible for these axms you have to be in the last semester as I said.....
    Also you can enter in any wing namely ground, technical or the pilot wing of the air force as you have science and maths in 12th and graduation.....even you can try for the navy also through the CDS exam...
    Good career ahead!!!!

    Re: Can I join Indian Air Force while pursuing Computer Science & Engineering?

    Im sure that you can apply but only when you r doing the last year of your graduation because you have now missed NDA
    examination and you r no longer eligible candidate for it too.
    so rest of the exams left for indian airforce requires a degree of graduation and you should have a requiside degree , sir.
    so it could be computer science or any engineering graduation.
    Best of luck.
