The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is a government organisation that offers coding opportunities for students who want to pursue a career in space research and development. There are certain eligibility criteria that students need to meet in order to become an ISRO coder. Firstly, students need to have completed their 12 t h standard from a recognised board with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as their main subjects. Secondly, they need to have secured at least 60% marks in aggregate in all the three subjects mentioned above. Thirdly, they should be below 25 years of age as on the date of commencement of the training program.
Once the students meet these eligibility criteria, they can apply for the position of an ISRO coder through the official website of ISRO. The selection process for this position consists of two rounds- written examination and interview. The written examination tests the candidate’s knowledge in physics, chemistry and mathematics while the interview round assesses their communication skills and overall suitability for the job role.
After clearing both these rounds, selected candidates will undergo 6 months training at ISRO headquarters located in Bengaluru. On successful completion of training, they will be posted at various centres/ units of ISRO across India according to organisational requirements.
