The PhD program consists of flexible course work, laboratory training, research project to demonstrate attainment of a high degree of scientific ability which is followed by advanced research leading to a PhD thesis on a specific topic. The PhD program is normally completed in 4-5 years. During the first year, the students have to go through a course work covering basic and advanced topics. The students are encouraged to take courses in inter-disciplinary areas. Apart from the subject courses, a course in scientific communication is mandatory for all the students. As part of the PhD program, the PhD student is expected to give at least two seminars.

PhD (Engineering)

The integrated PhD program in Chemical Engineering after a 4-year Bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and allied areas is designed to be completed in five years (4 years for students with M Tech). It consists of coursework in core Chemical Engineering areas followed by elective courses in specialized topics. The coursework requirement is lower for students who join the program with an M Tech degree. PhD candidates are expected to write and defend a research proposal, and undergo a comprehensive exam. A thesis, together with publications and/or patents that results from research mentored by a PhD advisor is evaluated by a committee for award of a PhD degree. The program is designed to equip students to pursue independent research careers in academia, or in the R&D divisions of industries.
