Eligibility Criteria

The minimum qualification required for admission to PhD programs in Science, Engineering, Management, Planning & Architecture, and Humanities & Social Sciences is one of the following:

  • ME/MTech/MSc Engg/ MPharm/ MArch/ MPlan/ MDes in relevant discipline with at least 6.5 CGPA or 60% marks or 1st class in both BE/ BTech/ BSc Engg/ MSc/ BPharm/ MCA/BArch/ BDes or equivalent, and ME/MTech/ MScEngg/ MPharm/ MArch/ MPlan/ MDes from a recognized Technical Institute or University.
  • BE/BTech/BScEngg/MSc/BPharm/MCA/BArch/BDes or equivalent in relevant discipline with CGPA of 7.0 or 65% marks.
  • MSc in Basic Sciences with CGPA 7.0 or 65% marks in relevant disciplines. For applicants with valid GATE/NET/GPAT or equivalent score, requirement may be relaxed by maximum
    0.5 CGPA or 5% marks
  • MBBS/BVSc with CGPA 6.5 or 60% marks or 1st class

Further, candidates having the following qualification can also apply for PhD in Management and Humanities & Social Sciences:

  • MA/MCom/MBA/MSc in Humanities and Social Sciences or Management or BTech with 6.5 CGPA or 60% marks or 1st class for PhD in Management, and Humanities and Social Sciences only.

In addition to the above eligibility criteria the following additional criteria will also be applicable

  • A candidate should score minimum 6.5 CGPA or 60% marks or 1st class throughout career to be eligible for admission to PhD programme. The Departmental Research Committee (DRC), however, may make exception (marks < 60% or CGPA < 6.5) at its discretion in only one among the results of 10th, +2, BA, BSc, BCom, Diploma etc. (except qualifying degree) if the candidate has qualified in GATE/NET/GPAT or other national level fellowship tests like DST-INSPIRE, etc. or joined as JRF/SRF in any research project
  • For admission to Engineering and Science disciplines (except Life Science), a candidate should have passed Mathematics in +2 Science or Diploma.
  • Science students admitted to PhD programme in Engineering/Physics/ Mathematics must have passed Mathematics at +3 level. Students without Mathematics at +3 level may be admitted under the condition that they will have to register for 14 credits of 1000 and 2000 level Mathematics and 1000 level Computer Science courses (Theory and Practical) in addition to their normal course requirement, and secure at least C grade in each course.
  • A student should have passed Life Science or Biological Science either at +2 or +3 level for admission to PhD in Life Science department.
  • Students without having qualifying degree in the primary discipline will be required to take up additional course work of 6 credits to gain adequate knowledge on the subject so as to be considered to qualify along with students with specialization in a primary discipline, unless explicitly exempted by the Senate.

However, a higher short listing criteria (possibly different for different departments) may be set by the Department during scrutiny of applications depending on the departmental requirement, number and quality of applicants.

Therefore, merely satisfying the minimum eligibility criteria does not guarantee a candidate to be called for interview and mere attending an interview does not guarantee admission.

For Department specific Qualifying Degrees and Primary Disciplines for Admission check Information Brochure/Notice.
