Admission to the PhD program:

The admission procedure for a PhD student can be summarized in brief as follows:

  2. An interview with a panel of faculty members from the specialization in which the candidate wishes to pursue his/her PhD. The interview stresses on the past research experience of the candidate along with his/her basic knowledge in the specialization.
