Education details of Dr. Kalam

After completing his schooling at the Rameshwaram Elementary School, Kalam went on to attend Saint Joseph's College, Tiruchirappalli, then affiliated with the University of Madras, from where he graduated in physics in 1954.


Towards the end of course, he was not enthusiastic about the subject and would later regret the four years he studied it. He then moved to Madras in 1955 to study aerospace engineering. Becoming a fighter pilot was a "dearest dream" but he failed to realise it as he bagged the ninth position when only eight slots were available in the IAF.
