Master of Science by Research Program:

The Centre for Energy at IIT Guwahati has been serving as the platform for multi-disciplinary energy research with the activities through sponsored and consultancy research projects being implemented in the centre by the faculty members from different departments. The PhD students and project staff (JRF, SRF, RA etc) are the working force for executing the works to reach the committed objectives in the projects. In order to increase the vibrancy of R&D work, The Centre has started Master of Science by Research (M.S.-R) programme. The MS (R) programme would be distinct from the currently offered MTech programme in the institute in terms of the credit structure of the theory course because the M.S.(R) programme will have less credit on the theory course and more on the project work. The prime objective for this newly designed course M.S.(R) in Energy is to build up the understanding on the energy sector and to develop R&D skills in the energy field. This programme will be ideal for individuals who are from industrial, commercial or government institutions in the areas of energy or related field and who wish to undertake R&D to solve problems in the field of energy and its interlinked areas. This M.S.(R) programme in the centre may also facilitate the interaction of IITG with industry/Government, commercial and R&D institutes to promote technology or product oriented research for societal needs.
