He was a great scientist who served the country from 11th to 2007 as the 11th President of India. After completing his term as president, he returned to education and public service, the author of his civilian life. Abdul Kalam served in various key positions of ISRO and DRDO and then became the Chief Scientific Adviser to the Government of India in the Cabinet Ministry of India.

He was awarded doctorates by at least 30 universities, along with the country's top three civilian honors (Padma Bhushan 1981, Padma Vibhushan 1990, Bharat Ratna 1997).
