Frequent Asked Questions
A student seeking admission to the Ph.D. programme must have passed the M.Sc. Examination of any recognized University and scored not less than 60% in any subject under the science stream. In addition, a student must have an excellent track record at the undergraduate and post graduate level from a recognized institution or University.
The NMIMS University is introducing Ph.D. programme in Chemical Sciences and Biological Sciences from the academic year commencing from July 2007. The salient feature of these programmes is the emphasis being laid on the overall development of laboratory skills of a research student coupled with an expansion of his knowledge base through an interdisciplinary course work comprising lectures and practicals in the first year of the course and subsequently fine tuning these skills in a particular area of specialization. While the research student will have ample opportunity to acquire hands-on training on modern, sophisticated instruments/equipment wherever necessary, he will also be able to benefit from the expertise of one or more supervisors wherever needed.
The course work in the first year will extend over three trimesters. From the second year onwards, each student will undertake research in a specialized area of chemical or biological sciences on a topic to be decided by the student in consultation with the Research Supervisor(s).
The duration of the research project would be 2 years or more depending on the performance of the student.
