Ph.D. PROGRAMME
The Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Mathematical Sciences
is administered by the IISc Mathematics Initiative (IMI). This programme provides an unique opportunity
for students to work in areas spanning mathematics,
biology, physics and engineering. Students can work in
any of the interdisciplinary research areas mentioned
below. Each selected student will work with two
research supervisors (from two different Departments).
For example, a student can have supervisors from
Mathematics and an Engineering Department or Biology
and an Engineering Department or Physics and
Mathematics Departments.
Eligibility Criteria:
 M Sc or equivalent degree in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology
or
 ME/M Tech or equivalent degree in Engineering
