Excellent laboratory facilities, the library and the computer centre form an ideal research environment for dedicated research students. At present graduate studies are conducted primarily in two disciplines: Thermal and Fluid Science, and Mechanics and Design.
For the Ph.D. program the standard academic entry requirement is a minimum CGPA of 2.75/4.0 (or international equivalent) obtained from a related science or engineering undergraduate discipline. The applicant is also required to have a master’s degree and submit a brief explanation about his/her research interests. Admission of applicants to the Ph.D. program is subject to assigning supervisors for their research topics.
