INDIAN INSTITUTE SCIENCES invites for Research and Ph.D Programmes - Pharmacy & Other Sciences
The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was conceived as a ´Research Institute´ or ´University of Research´ by Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, in the final years of the 19th century. A long period of almost thirteen years was to elapse from the initial conception in 1896 to the birth of the institute on May 27, 1909. The early history of the Institute is a fascinating chapter in the story of higher education and scientific research in India. The cast of characters in the drama that led to the establishment of the Institute includes, in addition to its charismatic and generous founder J.N. Tata, figures from the pages of Indian history.
Admission is open for (i) Research Programmes [Ph D / M Sc (Engg)] (ii) Course Programmes [ME/M Tech/M Des /M.Mgt] (iii) Integrated Ph D Programmes and (iv) External Registration Programmes (Ph D only) at the Institute. Eligibility criteria, specialization, areas of research and other details are available at our website iisc.ernet.in/admissions. Candidates who are yet to complete their qualifying examinations and expect to complete all the requirements for the degree (including all examinations, project dissertation, viva-voce etc.) before July 31, 2013, are also eligible to apply.
