    Hello,

    After doing the engineering, you can be a part of IAF technical branch by giving EKT (Engineering Knowledge Test).

    However as along with your engineering, you have completed your graduation also. So you can join IAF as flying officer by giving CDS examination for permanent commission. While SSC for short service commission.

    Other than this, you can also give AFCAT and CET for ground duty as well.

    So go for it

    Thank you
