@tanu

The minimum requirement for becoming an astranuat is Bachelor's Degree in Engineering. You can step forward to become a pilot or mission specialist after completing your engineering course. Wish you good luck for your future.

mam',
if u want to fulfill ur dream u must have to do specialization in some field through any renouned university .since u are an engg. student u need to apply for m.tech or ms and after doing specialization u would be having chance to join nasa (becoz it requires high intellectual status),and as well u need to apply for american citizen ship for making ur way easier.

Hi Tanu,

If you are really intrested in Astronomy & Space Researching then first of all you have to complete your Engineering Degree. After its completion, you can try for Indian Space Research Institute (ISRO), Bangalore. Then, by having a good experience in Space Science, you can try for NASA.

JOINING NASA IS NOT AN EASY TASK.

but not an impossible one.

to become an astronaut you required an b.tech (aerospace or aeronautical)
from a reputed institute.visit nasa website nasa.gov

they usually give salary of $1,00,000+ annualy to their astronauts.


BEST OF LUCK.

Begin your preparation as early as possible. Learn the basics in elementary school, especially math and science.

NASA's "minimum degree requirement" for an astronaut is a bachelor's from an accredited institution, so work hard in your chosen classes. Your grades should allow you to enroll in a good Master of Science program.

After college, you'll need 3 years of related increasingly responsible professional experience in your field

All of you Those who want to Join NASA/ISRO or want to become Astronaut Kindly Read the whole post nicely.

For becoming an Astronaut check weather you have that qualities or not.



Then you have to acquire anyone of the following degree from a good institute like IIT or IISC or IIST (most suitable).

P.hd (Astro physics).
P.hd (Geophysics).
P.hd (Metaphysics) I mean to say any branch of physics which leads to space science,these are few examples.

You can persue these degrees from IIT's or IISc,after acquiring these degrees from there you can appear for entrance conducted by NASA at international level for recruiting Astronauts,Scientists etc.You can also work with our country's ISRO various entrance are cionducted by ISRO for recruiting Scientists and engineers for carrying Space reasearch or various jobs.

M.tech/P.hd (Aerospace engineering)
M.tech.P.hd (Aeronautical engineering)

Better to persue these degrees from IIST.IIST conducts Admission to its specialied courses which leads in space tecnhnology.For entering into IIST you have to crack ISAT or IITJEE after that you will be provided Admission into B>tech if you have good performance in B.tech then you would also offered M.tech or P.hd. all study there is free of cost,after aquiring degree from there yopu will be absorb as an Scientist of ISRO.

Besides these you will also get oppurtunity to join NASA,the best place for astronauts in the World.They pay $1,00,000 to there scientists or astronauts.
Six Indian Students were involved in LHC (Large Hadron Collidor) experiment at CERN,they from NIT,Durgapur and were M.tech student.

I would also suggest all the askers to Read a Article "Astronaut Selection Process" HERE

I am sure it will be much helpful for all of you.

If problem persists please feel free to ask.

Best of Luck

Regards
~Faiyaz~

There are various ways:
1. You can apply directly after 12th, for training.
2. You can pass out as aeronautics engg. ,and give its entrances.

First of all its very important that which field are you doing your engineering in? Opportunities in NASA are more for aeronautical engineers! last But not the least you need to have some talent different from others! try to see and develop good thinking analyzing and solving type of skills! Finally your confidence and dedication will take you to higher levels

Well, if so then Better persue your Aeronautical Engineering degrees from IIST.

IIST conducts Admission to its specialied courses which leads in space tecnhnology.

For entering into IIST you have to crack ISAT, which was introduced this year previously the admission were based on IITJEE. After that you will be provided Admission into B.tech if you have good performance in B.tech then you would also offered M.tech or P.hd. all study there is free of cost,after aquiring degree from there you will be absorb as an Scientist of ISRO. on the aggrement of 2 years.

If you dont want to work with ISRO then you can leave after paying 10 lacs to the Authority.

Eligibility Criteria for ISAT:- Candidate must have at least 70% aggregate in class 10 (including science group) and in class 12 (including
pcm) also.

Since criteria is very tough and entrance is also very few students able to meet the criteria so in that case you can go for IITJEE and AIEEE also.

Hi
Its good to have ambition like you but for fulfillin that you have to do hard work dear.
First complete your engineerin and then do mastry in stream.
Because thinking about NASA is so far
They need very qualified candidate for their work.
So, please do masters inyour field and get as more as you can get experience then its easy for you.
good luck
