    Re: How to become an Astronaut after completing 12th standard? What is the procedure to apply for it?

    you need not apply for it now. there are no schools or university courses for astronauts. to become an astronaut one needs to have satisfactory qualities and qualifications that you need to take care of in your further (higher) studies.
    it is always recommended to learn the basics especially maths and science in elementary school. read almost everything you get your hands on regarding astronauts and space.
    holding a bachelors degree from an accredited institution is a minimum requirement, therefore it's mandatory to complete high school studies first. it is must to achieve high grades in high school and also in SAT & ACT, which are entrance exams for college studies at United States.
    your grades in bachelors should be high enough to enroll you for a masters in any science program.
    after college you'll need 3 years of professional experience in your field, may it be engineering, biological or physical science or mathematics.
    once you get the degree and the requisite experience, you can apply for the position of an astronaut filling certain forms, and after that you will be analyzed on certain aspects like expertise, experience, grades, etc. but that will be in the long run.
    what you need to do now is try to gain great grades in academics and wisely choose your field of interest in your bachelors or masters.

    hi,
    after completing +2 u can applay in IIST for aeronautical engineering/avionics/physical science.the admission to IISt is through entrance called ISAT.after completing u r study u can get placement in isro as
    scientist or engineer or if unot interested in in engineering u can join Bsc aeronautics or avionics but thease courses are offered by limited colleges

    After completing your 12th you first have to do engineering with branches like aeronautical or mechanical engineering. After completing your engineering with a min. of 65% you can apply for the examinations conducted by the space research organisations such as ISRO, BHABHA etc. In this way after a certain period of time you will be able to become a successful astronaut.

    After 12th in order to become an astronaut,you need to get a bachelor's degree from a recognized university in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics.
    Also,you need to give certain entrance exams.

    To become an Asrtraunaut you need to be minimum graduate in aeronautical engineering,There is Good scope pg Aeronautical Engineering in India Because of the growth of Aviation Industry..Its a good branch if u opt it...and to enter into this field u need to take Physics, Chemistry and Mathamaatics in your 11th and 12th classes.There are many exams which are conducted at National Level for entry of Aeronautical Engineers so you need to apply it and clear the exams thats it..as the exam is at National level so comptetion is a bit high so u need to work hard..apart from that there are many Institutions which offer this degree so u can apply there also..some private Institutions include:Punjab Engineering College -Chandigarh 2.Hindustan Institute of Technolgy -Chennai 3.Madras Institute of Technology-Chennai 4.Institute of Aviation and Technology Haryana .!!!

    Well very good ambition. You will take higher studies in aeronautical or aerospace in engineering or technology. There are many universites and colleges are in these degrees. Many government and private colleges having approved for these degrees. This is one of the costliest course. In plus two you will get good marks you can join merit seats in government colleges in your state or another state. The indian institutes of technology is the most important of our country and world level famous. If you join these institutes you will take iit-jee. This is the more competetive exam. If you are economically strong you will join good private colleges. Best of luck. Search your ambition. And you will win.

    To make career as an Astronaut,one need to have Physics,chemistry,Mathematics stream in class 12th and same in Bachelor degree,means one should be graduate in engineering,biological science, physical science, or mathematics. An advanced degree is desirable. Quality of academic preparation is important.
    -At least 1,000 hours pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft. Flight test experience is highly desirable.
    -Ability to pass a NASA space physical which is similar to a military or civilian flight physical and includes the following specific standards:
    Distant visual acuity: 20/100 or better uncorrected, correctable to 20/20 each eye.
    Blood pressure: 140/90 measured in a sitting position.
    Height between 62 and 75 inches.

    you can do b-tech in this field.it require 10+2 science stream and entrance exam.
    then go for b-tech or BE.

    Dear friend, for becoming a space scientist or astronaut , you really have to do a lot of hard work. For this you have a very limited opportunity in India but a much more in abroad because of the availability of seats. In AIEEE, there are few colleges like NIT in which there is aeronautical as well as robotic branches of engineering. Also the best institute is IIST under ISRO . The admission to IIST is through ISAT. Also let me tell you one thing that seats available are 156 for all categories in IIST. Really its a hard cookie to crack but you can acheive it via your hard work. Best of luck......
    Check out the syllabus attached herewith !!!

    Hi,
    If u want to do instrumentation/experimental astronomy,u may go for engineering option.
    If u want to do theoretical astronomy u may go to science stream.
    You have to get a B.Sc. or B.Eng. in physics or Engineering subjects and apply for a master's degree programme in one of the indian institutions.
    There are several institutes in indi which offer to pursue a career in astronomy.
    Indian institute of Astrophysics(Bangalore)
    Indian institute fo Science(Bangalore)
    Raman Research Institute(Bangalore)
    Inter-University centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics(Pune)
    National Centre for Radio Astronomy
    Most of these offer oppurtunities to the aspiring candidates based on the entrance test followed by an interview.
    Minimum qualification required for the exam is Master's degree in Physics.Some of the institutes accomodate engineering graduates as well.
    AL D BEST.

    Your ambition is good. You can in your way. You are in +2 now. You can join the technical field of your further studies. There is the possibilites are available. You can select the aeronautical or aerospace in your degree. You can select best colleges among your marks. Then master degrees in the same field you will do. The your performance and activites are given to the chance of your ambition. If you bra getting good marks you will select good colleges. If your economically strong you will be join the top private colleges. Or the world level famous institutes you can join. There is possible to join procedure is you will be getting the entrance examinations.best of luck. Choose your best way:-):-)

    To become a astronaut from nasa you should complete your b.sc. For better say , you should complete your graduate line with science specially with physics or mathematics. After you complete then you can go for M>sc then there will be a opportunity for you to go for nasa conducted exam . And if you qualify there you would go to space academy for training . After you complete your training you are about to get a astronaut title................. best of luck.......

    DEAR FRIEND

    you can do B.tech in aeronautic engineering from IIT bombay or IIT kanpur

    for that you have to clear the entrance exam IIT-JEE

    OR



    you can join B.tech in aeronautic engineering in NITS at TIRUCIL and ROURKELA and BITS after clearing exam like AIEEE.

    You can also do BE in aeronautical engineering at the INDIAN INSTITUTION OF
    AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING DEHRADUN and at madras institute of technology in chennai.

    as

    NASA takes in specialist from different discipline including aeronautical engineering.
