The award of the PhD degree is in recognition of high achievements, independent research, and application of scientific knowledge to the solution of technical and scientific problems. The creative and productive inquiry is the basic concept underlying the research work. The details of research programmes in various Departments/ Centres/ Schools are given in Annexure-I.

Admission to the PhD Programmes: Admission to the PhD programmes is normally made on the basis of an interview of eligible candidates conducted by the Department/Centre/School concerned, through its Department Research Committee (DRC) / Centre Research Committee (CRC)/ School Research Committee
(SRC). DRC/CRC/SRC may decide to conduct a written test as well, or multiple interviews, or other ways or testing, in order to screen the candidates. Applications are invited from candidates by advertising the programmes in Employment News/web portals in March for the first semester and in October for the second semester every year.

Duration of the programmes: Minimum period of registration required for students with M.Tech. or equivalent qualifications are 2 years whereas those with B. Tech. or equivalent qualifications 3 years. All candidates are allowed a maximum of 7 years for submission of their theses.
