Graduates Studies

Students admitted to the PhD program are officially associated with a faculty member at the time of registration. The first year comprises of rigorous course work wherein students can register for any course offered within IISER-Bhopal or through the National Knowledge Network (NKN) from other Indian institutions. The students may start their research project in their first semester or later based on their PhD advisers recommendation. The course work allows students to develop a comprehensive understanding of the concepts aiding them in their research. Subsequently, students are also evaluated for their suitability to pursue their PhD through several systems, including a comprehensive examination and a graduate seminar. In addition to being involved in research with a particular mentor, students are also motivated towards presenting their research work as departmental seminars and to publish their research findings in peer-reviewed international scientific journals and conferences. After successful completion of the research work, the thesis dissertation submitted by the student is evaluated by a panel of reviewers and is then recommended for the award of a PhD degree.
