This question which is mentioned in the title comes up to me every day. I get emails of students that they want to do training in India’s most prestigious place i.e Defence Research Development Organization (DRDO). Today, I would like to throw some light on this area. But before that I want to mention some prerequisites required for applying anywhere for training or summer project.

The most important three things which make you a standout yourself is your ability to express your abilities


Before you begin assembling application:

• Read the eligibility criteria carefully; don’t waste time preparing applications to

programs for which you will not be considered.

• Read all of the FAQs.  Nothing makes a program director crankier than your

asking a question that has already been answered.

• Follow all of the links on the website.  Those links were included because

someone in the training program office thought they had information that would

be useful to you.

• Visit a career website

Read and follow all directions.

• If the directions for the cover letter ask you to discuss four points, make certain

that you address all four.

• If you are asked to list all the courses you have taken and the grades you

received, do not just list science courses.

Timing:  Never submit your application at the last minute.

• Editing and polishing your application is important, and it takes time.
