    Which course to do to become an Astronaut and Space Researcher? Is BSc in physical sciences good option?

    Sir,
    I want to become an astronaut or a space researcher because I like to know about space. In that case what course should I take?

    If I do B.Sc in Physical Sciences from DU(Delhi University). Can I get a job in NASA, ISRO or any other place? Please help me.

    This is a pretty interesting field. But for that it is must you have required knowledge too. B.Sc in Physical Science is an option that can be considered. But after that you will need to complete M.Sc then move to doing a M.Tech. The number of years spend studying will be high. The better option will be to first pursuing B.E or B.Tech in Aeronautical or Aerospace Engineering. NASA and ISRO do recruit graduates from an engineering background. If you desire you could complete your Master too in the stream. You can do a PH.d along with your job and thereby specialise in an area. There will be entrance exams conducted. You must start preparing when you are in your final year.

    It is good to see you are interested towards Astronaut and Space Researcher. It is an excellent career choice for anyone who has the caliber. As to be an Astronaut or Space researcher, a candidate needs to have an engineering degree in Aeronautical or Aerospace discipline. This course is considered to be one of the most challenging areas in the engineering and offers wide scope. Some of the related courses in the area include Aeronautical Engineering (AMAeSI), B.E Aeronautical Engineering, B.Tech Aeronautical Engineering etc. Even higher studies option is available to students like M.E. Aeronautical Engineering. Candidates who have secured excellent marks in B.Tech can apply to ISRO, NASA etc. In these organizations candidates are recruited on the need basis. With a B.Sc Physical science you can join any one of these organization, but higher studies in Physics or Astronomy is also requires. A Ph.D will definitely help to enter in to this field as a scientist or research officer.

    Bsc physical science is a good field.but i will tell u a short cut to ur dream.there is an institute called IIST that college offer b.tech in physical science,aeronautical engineering and avionics.
    the admission to IIst is through ISAT.the students who secured 70% mark in pcm in +@ and 10 th are eligible to apply for isat. if u complete degreee from iist then u r placed in isro as scientist or engineer the notification is on 2011 december

    If you want to become an Astraunaut then now you need to complete your your graduation in the same field itself.:Punjab Engineering College -Chandigarh 2.Hindustan Institute of Technolgy -Chennai 3.Madras Institute of Technology-Chennai 4.Institute of Aviation and Technology Haryana 5.Hindustan Electronics acedemy-Banglore and many more ...I woild say your choice is so go for it .These are some the colleges from which you can complete your graduation in the same field.. and you cannot get job just as Bsc in NASA ,you have to be minimum BE/Btech or else you will have to quaalift yhe exams conducted by the Institution.!!!
