    Hi there,
    After MCA, you can join ground duty of IAF. For flying branch, one need to write CDSE( combined defence servise exam), but CDSE can be applied by only engineering graduates.
    B.E aspirants can only apply for CDSE.

    For more info on ground duty branches, visit www.careerairforce.nic.in.
