Sir, I have two questions: (i)my son is pursuing BE. in Mechanical Engineering from the Jadavpur University, Kolkata. What is his scope of getting job in the core stream from JU? (ii) He has ambition to work as Scientist/ENGINEER-SC under ISRO. What mehtod he has to follow for this?
Ans: Encourage your son to pursue his passion and stay focused on his goals. Working at ISRO can be a rewarding experience!
Jadavpur University’s Mechanical Engineering department has a rich history, functioning since 1906. It is currently the largest department in the Faculty of Engineering.
The department actively engages in various research projects with organizations like DRDO, BRNS, DST, ARDB, and NSTL.

To work as a scientist or engineer at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), your son can follow these steps:
Educational Foundation:
Start with a strong educational background. Complete a bachelor’s degree (B.E. or B.Tech.) in a relevant field (such as Mechanical Engineering). Pursue a master’s degree (M.E. or M.Tech.) if desired. While optional, it can enhance qualifications.

Gain practical experience through internships, projects, or industry collaborations.
Stay Updated and Network, Keep abreast of developments in space research and technology. Network with professionals in the field.

Prepare for entrance exams:
ISRO Centralized Recruitment Board (ICRB) Exam: The primary gateway to becoming an ISRO scientist or engineer. It includes multiple-choice questions on technical subjects related to space.
Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE): While not specific to ISRO, a good GATE score can be beneficial.
