The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is the space agency of the Government of India headquartered in the city of Bengaluru. It is one of the most prestigious organizations for the engineers to work in. ISRO has a vision to “harness space technology for national development while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration”.

Eligibility Criteria:

It is the basic qualification that ISRO expects the candidates appearing for the ISRO entrance exam must have. Accordingly, the eligibility criteria are of various types: Age, Educational Qualification, other

Age Requirement:

 The ISRO requirement with respect to age is that the maximum age limit for all the candidates is 35 years i.e. candidates less than 35 years of age can apply for the post of scientist in ISRO.

 The maximum age limit for all the SC/ST candidates is 40 years

 The maximum age limit for all the OBC candidates is 38 years

 For the SC/ST and OBC the age relaxation is only valid against posts reserved for these categories

 Special relaxation is given to Ex-Servicemen and Persons with Disabilities (PwD) as per Govt. of India orders.

Education Qualification:

ISRO requires, for the post of scientist, graduates in the field of Civil, Electrical, Architecture, Mechanical, Electronics, computer science and Refrigeration and Air Conditioning streams. Accordingly, the required Educational Qualification for the candidates is:

 All the candidates who are willing to apply must have qualified B.E/B.Tech or equivalent qualifying degree in first class with an aggregate minimum of 65% marks or CGPA of 6.84 on a scale of 10.

 The Candidates who are in their final year of qualifying degree are eligible to apply if their final graduation degree will be available before the final results and they secure an aggregate of 65% marks or CGPA 6.84 (average of all semesters for which results are available).

 For all the candidates who have done their diploma followed by B.E/B.Tech (Lateral Entry) are also eligible provided they have passed their degree in first class with an aggregate minimum of 65% marks or CGPA 6.84 on a scale of 10.

 Associate Member of the Institution of Engineers (AMIE) candidates can also apply to ISRO but special conditions are specified for these candidates so AMIE candidates wishing to apply must check if they are eligible before applying.

 All the candidates who have passed M.E/M.Tech with B.Tech are eligible to apply provided their B.Tech marks meet the eligibility specified above.

 All the candidates who have studied integrated course of B.E/B.Tech and M.E/M.Tech are also eligible for the ISRO examination. These candidates must produce their Graduation certificate for B.E/B.Tech separately in first class with an aggregate minimum of 65% marks or CGPA 6.84 on a scale of 10.

 Candidates with part-time B.E/B.Tech degree are also eligible.

 Candidates who have done their B. E or B.Tech through correspondence course not eligible.

 The qualification mentioned and the benchmark set is only the MINIMUM requirement and fulfilling the same does not automatically make candidates eligible for Written Test.

 Candidates who apply for the post of architect will have to produce the Registration Certificate for having registered with the Council of Architecture, at the time of Interview, failing which he/she will not be allowed for interview
