After completing a 4 years course from IIST, students join ISRO but Masters degree and PhD are also offered at IIST so what is the pathway?
After students complete their bachelor's degree, we take them in ISRO and then they get an opportunity to do the master's degree at appropriate time maybe two or three years later. We encourage them not only those who are coming from IIST, those who are joining from elsewhere we encourage them to do the master's degree and if they are very keen to do the doctoral degree we encourage them to do that also. There are a number of scientists and engineers who have done the masters and doctoral degree and they have contributed very well to the entire program.
