Important Note


The CSE department has approximately equal number of Ph.D. vacancies in each diverse research areas (like Theoretical Computer Science, Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems, Computer Networks and Security, Machine Learning and Data Mining, Distributed Systems, and Man-Machine Interfaces) and detail of these research area available at https://www.iitg.ac.in/cse/cseresearchgroups
Based on our past experience, most of the Ph.D. applicants mention buzz words as their preferred research areas, so the area wise applicant distribution is skewed. Statistics of the previous admission is given as follows:

  • 50% of applicants applied to one research area.
  • 25% of applicants applied to another research area and
  • Rest 25% of candidates applied to the other four research areas.
As we invite application for Ph.D. for all the multiple diverse research areas of our department and department has an approximately equal number of Ph.D. vacancies in multiple diverse research areas. If a Ph.D. applicant mentions popular areas as his/her area of interest then his/her chances of getting selected will be less due to heavy competition in that specific research area.
Selection criteria are in general based on performance in tests and/or interviews in basic subjects of CSE (mentioned in the GATE syllabus) and your mentioned research area.
