    Re: Can I join Indian Army after doing engineering?

    Surely

    You can join in army after completing your engineering. While you are a Graduate you will get good jobs in the army.

    But it is better to join in the air force than join in the army, because your education is suitable for the Air fore jobs.

    You can appear for CDS exam to join in the army till your age 25. You can appear for AFCAT, PABT, UES exams to join in the air force till age of 23 years.

    Thank you dear.
