Important Notes

 

·         Course Duration: MSc = 2 year, MS (Research) = 3 year

 

·       MSc leading to MS (Research): any student with CGPA greater than 7.5 in the first year of MSc can register for MS (Research). Student who wishes to do MS (Research) shall do so by registering at the start of the third-semester (second year; July beginning) provided the student fulfils aforesaid eligibility criteria.

 

·         Minimum CGPA required for successful completion of course: 5.5 out of 10 for both MSc and MS (Research)

 

·        Prospective Employers/Takers: DAE, ISRO, DRDO, IUAC, laser industries, vacuum industries, semiconductor industries, IT and financial sectors, etc.

  

·        MS leading to PhD: any MS (Research) student with CPGA greater than 7.5 can directly register for our PhD programme. Students joining through the MS route will be eligible for institute fellowship, and exsumpted from the regular course work.
