Ph.D. (Electronics Science and Engineering) Programme

The Doctor of Philosophy in Electronics Science and Engineering is awarded to candidates with aptitude for research and analytical skills who have contributed to advancement of knowledge in the area of Electronics Science and Engineering. This programme covers, but is not restricted to, the areas of research in Micro-electronics, VLSI Digital Design, Signal Processing, RF and Microwave Materials, RF and Microwave circuits, Thin Films, MEMS. The qualifications are M.Sc. in Physics or Electronics or B.Tech./B.E. or M.Tech./M.E. in Electronics related subjects. The precise entry requirements and selection criteria for admission into the programme are specified in the admissions brochure.

The confirmation of Registration for the Ph.D. (Electronics Science and Engineering) Programme requires completion of course requirements. The total coursework requirement for Ph.D in Electronics Science and Engineering is Research Methodology (4 credits- compulsory) and the following based on the qualification.

(i) B.E/B.Tech/M.Sc students:The student need to complete minimum 8 credits in the first semester after admission + minimum 8 credits in the second semester after admission from the courses listed in Table I as suggested by the Research Advisory Committee (RAC)

(ii) M.E/M.Tech students: The student need to complete 8-12 Credits from the courses prescribed in Table II as suggested by the research advisory committee (RAC). While suggesting the course, the RAC will take note that the student is not repeating the same course again.
