I think Electronics Engineer is the best branch to join Indian Air Force. You can join the flying branch of this academy. You will be able to achieve more with your education in this branch. You can either be a helicopter pilot or a transport pilot or a fighter pilot. You will have knowledge from your graduation branch which will help you a lot in this job. If you are a male, then if you sit for Combined Defence Services Examination under union public service commission, then you will get permanent commission. This will happen only if you clear the Combined Defence Services Examination. But the age limit is 23 years. So hurry up. Along with this, you must not be married when you apply for this. So just keep all this in mind and go ahead.

Yes, you are eligible to join the Air Force after Electronics engineer through the CDS or the AFCAT entry.

CDS stands for the Combined Defence Services and the examination is conducted by the UPSC twice every year. The examination is conducted for the selection of the candidate in anyone of the different wing.

AFCAT stands for the Air Force Common Admission Test and the examination is conducted by the Indian Air Force for the selection of the candidate in the different duty as Ground duty, Technical duty, Flying Duty. It is also conducted twice in a year.

The written examination for the AFCAT entry contains two paper as General Ability Test and the Engineering Ability Test. One who qualifies in both the paper are eligible for all the three duties.

So you can apply in both of them but both the examination are conducted in the two stages and you have to qualify in both the stages for the final selection.
