# I would like to make it understand that it is not possible for you to study astrophysics while doing job in Indian Army. You have to choose any one options. Either you have to go for joining Indian Army or you have to go for pursuing degree in astrophysics.

# If you want to join the Indian Army after intermediate, then National Defence Academy (NDA) Examination is the most suitable option for you. You may even join Indian Army after completion of graduation through Combined Defence Service (CDS) Examination.

# If you want to make your career in Astrophysics, then it is pertinent to mention here that there is no any university or institute which directly provides undergraduate course in astrophysics.

# Few universities (such as Osmania University, Delhi University) and few institutes offers master degree programmes for those candidates who have done either B.Sc. (Physics & Mathematics) OR bachelor degree in engineering.

# Followings are the major recruiters for those who have done courses in astrophysics:

* Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO)
* Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)
* Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA)
* National Centre for Radio Astrophysics
* Aryabhata Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES)
* Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR)
* Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune
* Raman Research Institute (RRI)
* Physical Research Laboratory

# Followings are the desirable qualities expected from the aspirants:

* Team spirit
* Analytical and radical mind
* Scientific blend of mind
* Good physical fitness level
* Able to work for long periods of time
* Excellent scientific and technical competence
* Perseverance
* Problem solving skill

# Names of few universities offering postgraduate courses in astrophysics:

* Delhi University
* Burdwan University
* Osmania University
* Calcutta University
* Lucknow University
* Pune University
* Bangalore University
* Gorakhpur University
* Kashmir University
* Roorkee University
* Punjabi University
* Indian Insitute of Science
* Jadavpur University
* Guahati University
* Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam
* Gujarat University
* Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur
* Joint Astronomy Programme (JAP), Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
* Kumaon University
* Swami Ramanand Teerth University, Nanded, Maharashtra

Is astrophysics available as a course after NDA?
Do you have any question? or have anything to say?
