Ph.D. in Engineering

Overview

Applied Sciences, Life Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences Admissions 2024

The Ph.D. in Engineering is a quality course with updated media labs and design thinking laboratories. The Ph.D. students get an excellent opportunity to interact and work closely with the faculty in all interdisciplinary research subjects. The faculty members are the experts in their specialized subjects and can teach the students with utmost excellence. The research infrastructure is of top-notch level, and the laboratories in science and engineering are of high quality. The best part about their research infrastructure is that they are constantly upgraded.

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is acknowledged to be the highest university degree that is conferred on a doctoral student, who successfully defends her/his Ph.D. thesis in front of a panel of experts in the field appointed by the University after having spent a stipulated time and having achieved publications in reputed international journals and conferences.

The first year would require the Ph.D. candidate to go through a set of prescribed course work followed by initiation to research and comprehensive examination and carrying out actual research with the Ph.D. Adviser. The journey to earning Ph.D. degree typically goes through a cycle of four phases involving preparation, challenges, small and big successes and ultimate joy of successful defense of the written thesis. Completion of a thesis, depending on individual performance, typically may take about 4 years.
