Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

The award of Ph.D. degree is in recognition of high achievements, independent research and application of scientific knowledge to the solution of technical and scientific problems. Creative and productive inquiry is the basic concept underlying the research work. In order to overcome any deficiency in the breadth of fundamental training or proper foundation for advanced work, special preliminary or pre-doctoral courses are given by this department.

These courses are given either by faculty members or by guest-speakers and specialists in the profession.

Course requirements:

The requirement of pre-Ph.D. Course Credits/work for Ph.D. student having B.Tech. or equivalent degree will be 20 credits. In case the Ph.D. student having completed 20 credits is unable to complete the research at the Ph.D. level for any reason whatsoever, he/she be allowed to complete M.S.(Research) degree requirement.

M.Tech. or equivalent degree holders are required to complete a minimum of 6 credits. The department may require a larger number of credits in general or in specific cases. The course requirement will be determined by the Department Research Committee (DRC) on the recommendations of the supervisor after due consideration of the background of the student in relation to the proposed topic of research. These courses can be prescribed from existing M.Tech. courses, special pre-Ph.D. courses including laboratory, seminar, foreign language, etc. Normally, no independent study course will be allowed for Ph.D. students.

Full-time M.Tech. and M.S.(R) students of IIT Delhi interested in joining the Ph.D. programme within two years of completion of their M.Tech./M.S.(R) will be granted waiver of residency period. The course work requirements be made up by either additional credits (6 credits as per present norms) taken during their M.Tech./M.S.(R) period (over and above their minimum Degree requirements) or in the summer semester (first or second) by identifying courses. In all cases, such credit transfer be recommended by the concerned DRC as relevant to their Ph.D. programme. The minimum CGPA requirement for the course work is 7.50. If the CGPA at the end of any semester is above 7.00 but less than 7.50, he/she will be asked to take more courses in order to make up the required CGPA. If the SGPA at the end of the first semester and CGPA at the end of any subsequent semester is below 7.00, he/she will have to discontinue the doctoral programme. The course work must be completed within the first two semesters of joining the programme.

A student shall be formally registered/admitted to the candidacy of Ph. D. degree only after he/she has cleared the comprehensive examination. Students would be permitted to take the comprehensive examination only after they have submitted a research plan and have completed the course work (including compulsory audit course - HUL 810 Communication Skills). Full-time and part-time students must clear the comprehensive examination within a period of 18 months and 24 months, respectively, from the date of joining. A maximum of two chances will be given to any student to clear the comprehensive examination. Every student, after having completed the comprehensive examination must formally register for the candidacy on a form obtainable from the PG Section.

Other Information

Difference between admission to CSE and SIT

Most of the faculty members are associated with both CSE and SIT departments and a student can be enrolled in either of them to work with our faculty. Both the departments maintain similar quality of research standards. However, a key difference is that a student enrolled in CSE department is expected to have sound concepts in core computer science related fields and is expected to work on problems related to computer science. But, a student enrolled in the SIT department is expected to have awareness of computer science but expertise in a related field (e.g. electronics, mechanical, etc.) and wants to do interdisciplinary research involving computer science. Typically, student who have done their earlier degree in non-CS fields apply for SIT while students with CS background apply for the CSE department. Barring slight difference in the comprehensive requirements of the two departments, the students enrolled in both the departments are treated equally and follow similar academic requirements.

Accommodation

Full-time PhD students are provided accommodation on campus (subject to availability). Married students are provided an apartment while unmarried students get hostel accommodation.

Medical Facilities

Students and their dependents also have free access to the medical and sporting facilities on campus. PhD Scholars are provided free on campus medical facilities (consultancy, medicines, treatment) and free consultancy for spouse and kids.

Note for Part-time PhD applicants/students

The requirements for part time students can be found brochure linked above. Students working in technology industry/research establishments can apply for admission under part time category. We mention some general advice for part time students to enable them take right decision on admission.

  • The PhD programme at CSE/SIT departments of IIT Delhi is highly competitive and requires regular focus and commitment to research. Students should be well versed with this fact and should apply for admissions only if their workload allows them time for research.
  • It is generally difficult to manage a different work profile at work and at IITD. If there is a research topic which is related to the job being done at workplace, it can be of great help for the student. However, this is just an advice and is subject to the amount of effort the candidate is willing to put in on the research.
  • Part-time students also need to complete the course requirements which require them to attend classes atleast in the first semester. While some of the classes can be organized in the morning or evening slots to suit part-time students, it may not always be possible depending on the class size and hence students are advised to consider this aspect when applying. Part-time students from outside NCR can be provided hostel accommodation during the period of course work.

A normal full time load is 12 to 20 units for all PG students. Students who are on assistantship (and are earning the remuneration portion) shall be given a relaxation of upto 4 units in the normal full time load. A student may be permitted an overload of at most 4 units in a semester, with permission from the PG committee. The students who have completed the stipulated course requirements shall register for the thesis units in multiple of 4 units (i.e. 4, 8, 12 or 16). No overload shall be permitted in the thesis unit registration. Part time students may register for any number of units lesser than the normal full-time load.

Course Work Requirements

  • The requirement of the course work for a PhD student is aimed at providing the basic academic preparation to carry out the research, and have sufficient breadth in the area. The minimum course requirement for a PhD student is normally 32 units for students whose highest degree is a BTech (or equivalent), and 16 for those who have an MTech (or equivalent). The PG committee may ask the students with insufficient background to do additional courses (in addition to 32/16 units). For detailed course of requirement refer PG regulations
  • In special cases, for students with advance standing by virtue of their academic preparedness and/or by virtue of their professional work experience, some of the course requirements may be waived. All such waivers shall be decided upon by the PG Committee and reported to the Senate.
  • The PhD students are expected to finish their course requirements as per the timelines mentioned in PG Regulations.
  • Transfer of Credits for Courses done Outside: Students may be permitted to do academic work and courses in places of repute outside IIIT-Delhi. Based on their performance/quantum of work done and the content of the course, the PG committee may consider them equivalent to some course credits, and waive credit requirements for similar courses/projects within IIIT-Delhi. Institutions with which IIIT-Delhi has arrangements/MOU/student exchange programs, transfer of credits may also be permitted. Any such waivers/transfer is permitted only if the courses being considered have not been counted for any other degree/diploma requirement.
  • A PhD student may be permitted to replace up to two courses done by him/her and in which he/she has obtained passing, but not good, grade. The replacement will be permitted as and when the request is made by the concerned student. In this case, the earlier course will be listed in the transcript as having been taken on “Audit”. He / She may also be permitted to do extra courses to improve the CGPA. All such permissions shall be granted by the PG committee upon requests from the students.

Teaching Requirements

One of the potential career options for the research students is academics. The PhD program at IIIT-Delhi aims to develop suitable teaching skills among the research students through teaching requirements. Towards this, it requires all students on financial assistantship plan of the Institute are required to take part in the teaching activities. All PhD students must be TA for at least two semesters to satisfy the teaching requirements for a PhD degree. Students on research assistantship will also be required to complete this requirement, though they may be assigned lighter load each semester. The teaching requirement may be waived for part-time and/or sponsored candidates.

Thesis Requirements

  • All PhD students irrespective of their entry category are expected to successfully complete a minimum of 56 units by thesis. In truly exceptional cases where the PhD candidate is ready with a thesis before he/she has accumulated these credits, the PG committee can consider waiving off some of these units. For the purpose of grading in the thesis units registered, the progress in the thesis work shall be assessed by the thesis supervisor(s). For each semester, one S (if the performance is satisfactory) or one X (if the performance is not satisfactory) grade shall be awarded by the thesis supervisor(s). The thesis grades shall be submitted by the thesis supervisor(s) at the end of the semester.
  • Thesis supervisor and external co-supervisor: The thesis work shall be done under the guidance of the PhD supervisor, who shall be a faculty member of the Institute. There may be multiple supervisors. Normally, a student is expected to decide the supervisor(s) by the start of the second semester but can defer it till the end of second semester .This will be done by informing the PG Committee through a form, which shall be signed by the supervisor(s). A student can change the supervisor later – for this a formal request will have to be submitted to PG Committee and has to be signed by the old as well as the new supervisor. A student may also have external co-supervisors for the thesis. Such external co-supervisor shall be approved by the PG Committee upon a request by the student, duly approved and forwarded by the supervisor(s). The request must be accompanied by the CV/Bio or sufficient information about the proposed external co-supervisor which will allow the PGC to evaluate the suitability. Normally, the external co-supervisor should be finalized before the comprehensive and the PGC should be informed by the adviser and the student about the same.
  • Thesis evaluation and defense: All PhD theses will be evaluated by a panel of thesis examiners who are experts in that area, and the candidate will have to defend the thesis in front of this panel. The panel will consist of supervisor(s) of the student, and a minimum of three non-supervisor examiners, at most one of which can be from within the Institute. A thesis defense date will be fixed, after taking inputs from all examiners on the panel. The defense shall be open to all. At the end of the defense, the panel will deliberate and make an overall recommendation.
