MS by Research

This is a research-oriented postgraduate programme. The students can take advanced courses related to their area of specialization in the first year and devote the second year entirely towards their research thesis. Exceptionally well prepared students can directly start working on their research thesis in the first year, if they have the necessary background, and complete it in one and half year.

Post-BSc dual degree programme (BTech CSE + MS by Research in Computational Natural Sciences)

This is a four year integrated course offered to meritorious Science graduates (Physics/Chemistry honors) with an aptitude for research. The programme aims at providing breadth in Computer Science along with domain specialization with an opportunity for thesis work in the final year. For admission details click here.


* Regular PhD Programme : PhD is a research programme whose centerpiece is the dissertation. The course work and the qualifiers are there to ensure the necessary breadth in the areas for the student. The semester-wise courses and the planning of PhD study is dependent on the students background. A PhD student takes the relevant courses in the first one or two semesters, depending on the background, just like a student of MS by research. After the first year, the student works on clearing the PhD qualifying exam which tests his or her breadth of knowledge in the field of study. This is followed by the P h D proposal defense where the depth of the knowledge of the student in his field of dissertation is tested. The PhD is awarded on completion of thesis followed by successful thesis defense. Research Exchange Programme allows a PhD student to spend time abroad.

* External PhD Programmes : This programme allows out-of-station candidates to enroll for PhD and carry out the main part of their research from their home institute. They are required to spend their first semester for course work in the institute, and again for a semester later while carrying out their research.

* Research Exchange Programme : The Institute has extremely ambitious programmes for the creation of the next generation of researchers, faculty members and innovators called the Research Exchange Programme. The candidate registers for PhD and spends even amount of time at the Institute and with a partner research group abroad. Financial support is guaranteed at both ends. He may also obtain his PhD from the partner research group abroad. The partnership has been worked out with leading research groups at CMU, University of Pennsylvania, and University of Illinois among others.

Part-time Programmes

Part-time Programmes: Professionals in Hyderabad area are encouraged to enroll in the PG programmes on a part-time basis. PG Students Status Programme allows professionals to take individual courses of their interest without needing to enroll in a degree programme.

Post-Graduate Student Status Programme (PGSSP)

The PGSS Programme provides an opportunity for professionals in the Hyderabad area to benefit from the advanced courses offered at the institute. The post-graduate status can be accorded to a professional on the basis of his or her academic and experience record. Once someone is awarded the PG status, he or she can take a maximum of two courses at the institute every semester. This provides him or her with the opportunity to acquire new knowledge in chosen areas without committing to a formal programme. The courses taken under the PGSSP scheme can count towards a formal degree from the institute, should the student join one of the full-time or part-time programmes subsequently.

M. Tech/MS/PhD Programmes for foreign students
