PhD in Electronics Engineering

Overview Of The Program

The doctoral program in the Department of Electronics Engineering offers research scholars to work in the cutting-edge research domains in electronics engineering. The students, selected through a rigorous process of entrance test and interview, are given complete freedom to choose their doctoral supervisors. They are required to acquire the necessary credits by completing course work and seminars. Following this, the research scholars, under the guidance of supervisors, immerse themselves in rigorous research activities that include a thorough literature survey to understand the state of current research in the chosen field and explore open problems, problem formulation & analysis and research work. A review of the status of their work is carried out twice a year. It is mandatory for a research scholar to publish the work in refereed journals and reputed international conferences. The research scholars are trained to make a significant contribution to knowledge in the field of electronics engineering.

The department has highly motivated PhD faculty members supervising the doctoral work. The department offers ideal research-conducive environment to research scholars and provides them the state-of-the-art infrastructure to work on. The department is equipped with all modern experimental setups and softwares and the institute has subscribed to reputed journals like IEEE, Elsevier, Springer, ACM and the plagiarism-check software.
