Eligibility for Full-Time/Part-Time candidate Selection Process
  • M.E. or M.Tech. or equivalent degree in Electronics & Communication/ Electrical & Instrumentation/ relevant discipline from a recognized Technical Institute / University with 60% or 6.5 CGPA.
  • M.Sc.* in Physics with specialization in electronics/solid-state engineering, M.Sc. Mathematics with specialization in signal processing/ theory of computation from a recognized Technical Institute / University with 70% or 7.5 CGPA.
  • B.Tech./B.E.* in Electronics & Communication/ Electrical & Instrumentation/ relevant discipline from a recognized Technical Institute / University with 70% or 7.5 CGPA.

    *M. Sc./ B.Tech./ B.E. candidates with valid GATE / CSIR/UGC-NET/ INSPIRE fellowship will be preferred.


  1. Applicants waiting for the qualifying examination results are also eligible to apply. However, those who are finally qualified must produce proof of minimum eligibility of marks or an equivalent grade point before taking the admission in the EED Ph.D. program.
  2. Part-Time Ph.D. applicants should be working in the relevant area (Industry/Academic/Research Institutions) for a minimum of 2 years. The candidate is required to produce a No Objection Certificate from the employer at the time of admission. 
  • Eligible candidates will be called for written test conducted by the department (online mode).
  • Candidates will be shortlisted and called for an interview based on written test performance. Interviews will be conducted at the Shiv Nadar IoE, Delhi NCR campus (in exceptional cases, it can be held online).
  • Candidates with a valid GATE score of 95 percentile or higher will be exempted from the written test.
  • The eligibility criteria mentioned above are the minimum, and applications not meeting the same will be summarily rejected.
  • The shortlisted candidates will be entitled to reimbursement of 3AC train fare (to and fro) against the actual ticket for appearing in the interview process. For outstation candidates, accommodation in the Shiv Nadar IoE campus may be arranged on a payment basis. Transport may also be arranged from Greater Noida, Pari Chowk, metro station to the SNIoE campus for the interview process.
  • Please note that candidates meeting the minimum eligibility criteria may still not be shortlisted for admission. The shortlisting will be done based on the academic qualification and statement of purpose. Hence, not all applications may be shortlisted for written examination.
