Submission of proposal seeking support for Part Time PhD seats under
"Visvesvaraya PhD Scheme" for Academic Year 2018-19

Please submit the proposal by 15th June, 2018.

One of the key goals of the Visvesvaraya PhD Scheme is to encourage working professionals and non-PhD faculty members to pursue PhD as Part Time candidates. Therefore the Institution may consider admitting Part Time PhD Candidates (if permitted under your institute regulations) under "Visvesvaraya PhD Scheme for Electronics & IT". It is envisioned that having Part Time PhD students would encourage the Industry-Academia interaction with better alignment of R&D efforts between them. It is also expected that this would also help in increasing the number of faculty members with higher qualifications in academic institutions.

We are happy to inform you that PhD Cell, MeitY has decided to call for new proposals for Part Time PhD seats for the academic year 2018-19. You may like to submit proposals for allocation of Part Time PhD seats under "Visvesvaraya PhD Scheme for Electronics & IT".
