Direct admission to the Ph.D program

Are you in the final year of your under graduation? Does exploring the cutting edge of current knowledge excite you? Then consider joining us directly for a Ph.D.

We now offer direct Ph. D admissions to motivated B.Tech/BE/BS students in Computer Science (or closely related streams) who are currently in their final year in any of the Centrally Funded Technological Institutions (CFTIs). To be eligible, you need to have a CPI (average grade out of 10) of at least 7.5 at the end of the sixth semester. Having a valid GATE score is not mandatory. However, you will have to qualify in the interviews/tests that the department conducts either in December or May. You can even appear in the interviews/tests held in December and join the next June. Successful candidates will be given a provisional admission to the Ph.D program. This admission will be confirmed provided the student completes his/her undergraduate program with a graduation CPI of at least 7.5.

Candidates admitted through this route will get a teaching assistantship as per rules, which for B. Tech graduates directly admitted to PhD is ₹ 16,000/- per month ₹ 25,000/- per month for the first two years which increases to ₹ 18,000/- per month ₹ 28,000/- per month thereafter.
