Please write to if you have any other questions.

Before the interview you will be asked to fill a form to identify your preferred research area(s).  Kindly note that some research groups may not be admitting any student this year due to various constraints.  All candidates, across all research areas, will be examined on their analytical ability in two of the following areas of basic mathematics:

  • Calculus and Differential Equations
  • Matrix Analysis and Linear Algebra
  • Fourier, Laplace, and z-Transforms
  • Probability Theory and Random Processes
  • Discrete Mathematics (combinatorics, graphs).

In addition you will be asked fundamentals related to your selected research topic. Rather than reproducing answers from your memory you are expected to justify your answers with appropriate reason/logic.

Please visit the admissions pages of the Institute to apply for PhD positions in the Institute. The admission will be based on interview of candidates shortlisted as per Institute policies, from the list of eligible applicants.
