    Re: Can I apply for CDS after completing B.Tech ECE?

    You can certainly apply for the CDS exam after completing your graduation in engineering. CDS examination is conducted by the UPSC twice in a year. This exam helps you to join different wings in the defense sector. Since you have done your degree in engineering you can apply to the Indian Navy, Air force and IAF through the CDS exam. The age limit of the candidates should not be more than 23 years. Those who are applying should also attend the Physical test as part of the selection criteria. You can attend this exam while being in your final year of engineering also. But you need to submit all the educational documents at the time specified if you get selected.
