Eligibility:

Level of Education of Applicant Selection Process

Candidate should have anyone of the following:

  • First Division in B. Tech. with minimum 80% marks (or equivalent CGPA) and with valid GATE /CSIR/ UGC NET/DST INSPIRE Fellowship.
  • M.E. or M.Tech. or equivalent degree in relevant discipline from a recognized Technical Institute / University with a minimum CGPA of 7 (out of 10) or equivalent marks.
  • M.S./M.Sc. with 80% in a relevant discipline (e.g., in Physics, Electronics, Computer Science, Material/Nano-Science, etc.) are also eligible under special circumstances. They must have exceptionally good academic credentials (throughout First Division in academic degrees, preferably with a good valid GATE/CSIR/UGC-NET score in the relevant discipline, and a strong aptitude for research).

Shortlisted candidates will be intimated well in advance to appear for written tests and interviews. The written tests and interviews will be conducted at the Shiv Nadar University (SNU, NCR campus) at Gautam Buddha Nagar District (near Greater Noida), U.P. (admission process may be held online due to travel restrictions enforced by the government).

 

Applicants waiting for the qualifying examination results are also eligible to apply.

 

Selection Process: The eligibility criteria mentioned above are the minimum and applications not meeting the same will be summarily rejected. Short-listed candidates will be required to demonstrate their knowledge through a written test and/or interview, to be held in July 2022. Selections will be based on past academic records, written examination and/or interview performance. Please note that candidates meeting the minimum eligibility criteria may still not be shortlisted for the admission process. The shortlisting will be done based on application material received (including the academic qualification, statement of purpose, and reference letters). The shortlisted candidates will be entitled to reimbursement of 3AC train fare (to and fro) against the actual ticket for appearing in the selection process. For outstation candidates, accommodation on SNU campus may be arranged on a payment basis. Transport may also be arranged from a few NCR metro stations.

Written Test Syllabus: Mathematical aptitude/reasoning and knowledge in core subjects of Electrical Engg. / Electronics & Communication Engg. (ECE) will be tested. (Refer latest GATE Syllabus of Electrical Engg. and ECE respectively).

Fees and Financial Assistance: Detailed information about the fee structure and the nature of assistantships are available on the website.

All full-time Ph.D. students admitted into the program shall receive a doctoral award (teaching and research assistantship) consisting of a tuition-fee waiver (as per department) and a monthly stipend of ₹40,000 for the first two years, and ₹45,000 for the next three years, subject to benchmarked performance. The continuation of the award is subject to satisfactory performance in the program evaluated continuously and compliance with all University regulations. Support will be available for deserving Ph.D. students to disseminate their work through conferences and publications. Please note that students with CSIR, UGC, INSPIRE, ICMR fellowships shall receive 100% tuition fee waiver.
