PhD in Computer Science Engineering:Database Systems

The department is actively involved in research in all current areas of Computer Science. The focus of the PhD program is on research training with a high degree of specialization. The aim of such a training is to make our PhD students very competent in their respective areas, so that they may be able to take up teaching or research-and-development professions.

For PhD students who have an M.Tech. degree, the minimum requirement is that of 64 units, out of which at least 16 units should be through regular post-graduate courses and at least 32 units should be through research.

In case of PhD students holding a B.Tech. degree, the minimum requirement is that of 96 units, out of which 40 units should be through post-graduate courses and at least 32 units should be through research.

A typical course is considered to be 4 units. All the courses in the PhD program are electives.

A list of all computer science courses is available here . A large number of electives are offered in each semester. The exact courses offered will depend on availability of faculty members in a particular semester.

The department of Computer Science & Engineering at IIT Kanpur has always been a very open and supportive department for all its students, and particularly so for the PhD students. There is a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, where faculty and students mix freely.

PhD students are respected as much as any faculty member. They have their own air-conditioned office space, furniture, etc., with a telephone. Each student is given a PC on her/his desk, when they join. They get office support for photocopying, laser printing, mailing, stationery, etc. They have a say in deciding the books and journals to be bought by the library. They can expect to get travel support to attend conferences.

There are a number of industry fellowships of upto Rs.15,000 per month available for PhD students . More details on financial assistantship is given below. In addition, the deparment runs a large number of short-term courses for the industry, in which PhD students have a choice to teach.
