    Getting directly job in NASA is not easy as such.You have to undergo certain procedure for getting jobs.If you are studying in Punjab Technical University,then you can go for working experience in NASA if you are a very good student.Then if you do something very good,then NASA will directly incorporate you as junior research fellow.

    Otherwise,you have to do the following to get into NASA.
    -Complete your BTech properly.
    -Apply for ISRO.
    -ISRO conducts entrance test every year.You have to qualify in it followed by the interview.
    -Then ISRO will select you as executive trainee or junior research fellow.
    -After working for ISRO for few years,you can go for NASA for further research.

    NASA recieces an averge of 4000 applications to fill around 20 slots for every 2 years and they call around 120 applicants from the total for ASB interview based on-

    -experience
    -potentioal
    -motivation
    -ability to function as team
    -communication skill.

    If you are interested in pilot or commandor position then instead of mission specialist.you have to go for at least 1000 hours of flight time in commandent of a jet aircraft.These type of training you have to face and need to do in future.After all these,Astronaut Selection Board chooses final candidates and pass to NASA and their decision will be final.
