Ph.D Program Faculty of Science

Program Overview

MIT-WPU believes that Research is an essential part of higher education system and is critical to societal development. It generates knowledge, provides useful information, and helps decision-making, among others.

In view of the long tradition of academic excellence at MIT WPU, it offers, under the guidelines prescribed by the University Grants Commission, the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) under the Faculty of Science. The following schools are having excellent research facilities and expertise available to guide the research scholars.

  • School of Computer Science

  • School of Biology

  • School of Chemistry

  • School of Physics

  • School of Mathematics & Statistics

The PhD program at different schools under Faculty of Science are designed to introduce a wide range of world-class research in the areas like Radiation Processing of Polymers and Composites, Structure Property Relations of Irradiated and Iodine Doped Polymers,Use of Irradiated and Iodine Doped Polymers in batteries, fuel cells, and super-capacitors viscoelastic, ultrasonic and Refractometric analysis of polymer solutions, Synthetic and Polymer Chemistry, Nano-materials, Conducting Polymers, Natural Product Chemistry,Polymer Chemistry,Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, Wastewater treatment methods, Topology or Clinical Trials, Research Methodology, Graph Theory, Matroid Theory, Combinatorics, Discrete Mathematics, Lattice Theory, Bayesian Inference, Quantile regression, Statistical genetics, Survival analysis, Fractional Partial Differential Equations, Biochemistry, Biotechnology (including Nano-biotechnology), Epigenetics, Biophysics, Digital Image Processing, Natural Language Processing,Signal Processing/ Speech recognition,Medical Image processing,Data Mining and warehousing, Computer Networks,Design and analysis of algorithm,Software Engineering , Biotechnology, Nano-biotechnology, biological engineering and complexity biology with interdisciplinary and translational approach.

We intend to equip students with exceptional skills for their future career. The first six months incorporate common courses and building scientific aptitude to optimize research output and encourage interdisciplinary research. We motivate and support research scholars for pursuing innovative and entrepreneurial ideas in the chosen topic of research. The PhD program at various schools supports the building of researcher networks, development and successful execution of PhD project plans, and acquisition of a broad base of knowledge and expertise.
