I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Guwahati for Scientist "c" role at ISRO in Dec, 2016
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Technical Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
The first round was just a resume shortlist, People with a CPI of >7 were shortlisted. It apparently appeared that CPI was not the only criteria but the projects done had also carried some weight.
Interview Tips
If you are targeting ISRO, having some projects in the areas of IC design or Signal Processing or Communication can sharpen your chances
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
They looked at my Resume and came to a correct conclusion that I was interested in IC design, in general, which was indeed true. They have asked about the courses undertaken in the last 7 semesters. They indeed paid careful attention to every course I had mentioned before them. They enquired about my interest (Analog IC design) and started switching gears, followed by a stream of questions.
Interview Tips
They keep extending the question, even if you answer them correctly. You just have to maintain your composure and carry on.

    Then there was first round of PI, from which they finalized 5 people. Then there was telephonic interview (only for two students, including me), but they were not satisfied by it so they went for 2nd round of PI. They gave final offers to only 2 people, including me.

      Interview Process

      Round 1

      Test

      Interview Experience
      It was CG based.
      Round 2

      Technical Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: How does a mobile work?
      Interview Experience
      The questions generally asked are of general type and hence check how much do you know about different aspects related to the topic. For example: How does a mobile work can check your knowledge about various modulation techniques, protocols, disadvantages, comparison with CDMA etc. And you are expected to tell them all these things.
      Interview Tips
      As ISRO had a single round of technical interview for its selection process I tried to plan my answers for that. For example the most obvious question could have been regarding my area of interest. Think it carefully and prepare for the interview questions in that field.

        General Tips
        The interview process was completely technical as I have mentioned earlier. Being an IDD student they asked me what new have i learnt in this extra year. There were some questions from the courses that I have studied-one was from antenna and one from wireless networks. There were questions related to my project on GPR. Now, telling things which could impress the panel surely helps in any interview.
