    For description of courses: 

  • Doctoral Programme

    The conventional, research-based doctoral degree programme provides a thorough grounding in the fundamental principles of Chemical Engineering, inter-disciplines, and related areas, as well as an intensive research experience. There are two tracks of Ph.D. options as follows:
    Full-time program
    For the individuals who would like to pursue Ph.D. in house, residing on campus. These students are eligible to be considered for a monthly Institute fellowship of Rs. 28,000 or Rs. 31,000 (based on qualification) at the time of admission. The selected candidates will be required to participate in teaching and other developmental activities of the institute.
    Part-time program
    For working professionals to provide basic facilities and environment for research. Applications for Ph.D. programme are invited twice in a year and candidates are selected based on the merit.
