Academic Process:

Ph.D.: In the Ph.D. programme, a student with M.Tech qualification has to complete minimum of four courses and a student with B.Tech. qualification has to complete minimum of ten courses. The most important part of the doctoral programme is the research work leading to a thesis. Student works on exciting research problems to come up with innovative/original ideas.

MS(R): In MS(R) programme, a student has to complete a minimum of four courses in the area chosen by the student in consultation with the thesis advisor. After completing the course work, the student is expected to do research work leading to a thesis. Focus on research makes this program exciting and provides in-depth knowledge to the student.

M.Tech: In M. Tech programme, a student takes eight courses, some of which may be compulsory for the area of specialization chosen, the rest being electives to be chosen in consultation with programme advisors. The programme also includes research/project component, which culminates to a thesis.
