The last two semesters are meant for project work, where students work rigorously in a focused area of Electronic & Information Systems under a qualified supervisor.

How to Enter into the Course Programme

To enter into this course a student must have proficiency in the courses of B.Tech. (Electronics & Telecommunication or equivalent) or M. Sc. (Electronic Science/ Information Systems/ Information Technology/ Electronics & Telecommunication/ Physics with Electronics Specialization or equivalent). The admission is made through a process decided by the Chairman, P.G. Council from time to time.

Class Schedule

Classes are conducted beyond normal working hours as well as on Sundays & other holidays as per convenience of the Guest Instructors.


About Course Programme

Presently the Department offers Doctoral programme in Electronic Science. There are four specializations to choose from: Electronic Materials & Devices, Instrumentation, RF & Wireless Communication Systems and Signal Processing.

How to Enter into the Course Programme

Candidates seeking admission into the Doctoral course are required to possess an MSc degree in Electronic Science or Equivalent with a minimum of 55% marks in aggregate. Students are selected through URET(University Research Entrance Test, conducted by BU)/UGC-NET/CSIR-NET. Candidates so qualified for the Research programme have to undergo a six-months course work and clear the same by securing at least 50% marks in each paper in order to become eligible to apply for registration. A synospsis relating to the research problem on which the candidate intends to work for his/her thesis has to be submitted along with the duly filled in application for registration.

Course Schedule
