Minimum Qualifications
  • Applicants with Master’s Degree in Engineering/Technology as their highest qualifying degree

    Applicants with Master’s Degree in Engineering/Technology must have secured 65% marks or 7.00 CGPA or equivalent in the Qualifying Master’s degree (60% marks or 6.50 CGPA for OBC, 55% marks or 6.00 CGPA for SC/ST/PD). They must have pursued their Master’s degree on the basis of qualified GATE score.  However there is no GATE cut off score for applicants with M.Tech/M.E as the highest qualifying degree, who are applying for Ph.D. in Engineering Discipline. Applicants with Master of Science in Engineering or equivalent from leading foreign Universities with outstanding academic record may be considered without GATE score.
    Selection Procedure: For candidates with M.E/M.Tech as their highest qualifying degree, selection to the PhD programme will be based on a written screening test followed by an interview. However, candidates with a valid fellowship such as CSIR/NET-JRF/KSCSTE fellowships and CSIR-NET Lectureship post their ME/M Tech, will be directly called for the interview.

    Applicants with Master’s Degree in Science as their highest qualifying degree

    Applicants must have Master’s Degree in the relevant area with a minimum of 65% marks or 7.00 CGPA or equivalent in the Qualifying Master’s degree (60% marks or 6.50 CGPA for OBC, 55% marks or 6.00 CGPA for SC/ST/PD). They must have cleared a National level eligibility test, such as a valid UGC-CSIR-NET-JRF/Lectureship/KSCSTE fellowship or NBHM/JEST/GATE, in the relevant disciplines.

Candidates awaiting results

Candidates awaiting their results in the final year/semester are also eligible to apply, provided they satisfy all the other requirements. Such applicants may be screened in for written test/interview based on the marks obtained by them until the current year/semester.  Based on their written test/interview performance, these applicants may be provisionally selected, subject to the condition that they have to produce the provisional certificate of obtaining the qualifying degree with required percentage of marks by the date stipulated in their provisional admission letter.  If they fail to produce the provisional/ degree certificate, transfer certificate and conduct certificate by this date, their admission offer will be withdrawn and the offer may be given to next eligible applicant in the waiting list.
A provisionally selected applicant who is awaiting his/her final certificates may be allowed to join IIST without submitting the provisional/degree certificate on the stipulated date of joining, subject to the conditions that (a) At the time of joining the applicant should have completed all the requirements for the award of the qualifying degree including all examinations, project works and viva voce,  (b) The applicant should produce at the time of joining, a Course Completion Certificate issued by the competent authority in the University/Institute specifically confirming that all examinations, project works and viva voce for the qualifying degree are completed, (c) If the above condition is satisfied, the applicant can be given  provisional admission with the undertaking that all pending certificates, mark sheets, degree certificates (Original or Provisional) will be submitted to IIST , latest by 31st October  2018, failing which the admission shall stand cancelled. For such applicants who are funded by IIST and provisionally admitted to the IIST Ph.D. Programme as per (c) above, no fellowship will be paid during the period before the required certificates are submitted. However, on regularization of admission following the submission of all required documents before the stipulated date, the applicant will be paid fellowship with retrospective effect from the date of joining.
Applicants who are employed in Government/Semi Government/PSUs/Autonomous Bodies should produce a “No Objection Certificate (NOC)” from the current employer at the time of Interview.
