    I am a student of Computer Science and Engineering from SRM University Chennai. I am keen on becoming a defense contractor. Can anybody please advise me how to become one ?? I heard that DARPA in the USA holds many annual programs for college students so that can also actively participate in many of their defense projects. Are there any training programs where an individual can enter the industry ??


    Any help from the respected forum members and moderator will be highly regarded and acknowledged.

    Do you want to become a defence contractor or do research in the defence field? They are both totally different.

    Anybody with the requisite academics and marks can do the latter. As for the former you will need a truck load of money and some PhD holders.
