Doctoral Programmes (Ph.D.)
The Ph.D. programmes are availabl e in various specializations - Biotechnology, Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineer ing, Humanities & Social Sciences, Mathematics, Physics & Materials Science and Engineering, Ma nagement. The Scholars ar e required to take up intensive research work under the gu idance of a supervisor on a specific problem for a minimum duration as specified. The research work is expected to result in new findings contributing to th e advancement of knowledge in the chosen field. The doctoral research programme gives an opportunity to students to demonstrate their analytical, innovative and indepe ndent thinking abilities leading to creativity and application of knowledge. The scholars are required to deliver seminars on their research progress regularly and publish their work. Finally, they are re quired to submit the thesis embodying their research findings for the award of the Ph.D. degree. They are also required to undergo some advanced level course work.
Financial support may be provided to select dese rving full time Ph.D. students in the form of Research/Teaching Assistantship. Research scholars in the areas given below will be pref erred, however, scholars interested in other related areas may also be considered.
