DGFS PhD Program 2015 (BARC) India

HBNI is a Deemed University comprising of ten institutions of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) as its Constituent Institutions (CIs). For this scheme, the students will be admitted to: (1) Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai; (2) Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Kalpakkam;

(3) Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), Kolkata; (4) Institute for Plasma Research (IPR), Gandhinagar. These Centers have been in the forefront of research in various branches of engineering viz. mechanical, chemical, metallurgical, electrical, electronics, instrumentation, nuclear and computers. Several of its state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities are unique to these institutions. The Ph.D. programme in Engineering Sciences is extremely challenging in view of the expanding Nuclear Power Programme of the Department of Atomic Energy. For the motivated candidates, it offers considerable scope to realize their potential while simultaneously contributing to the important task of nation building in this highly specialized area.

Many young professionals like to start their careers only after acquiring an advanced degree.  To attract such individuals, DGFS was initiated for inducting engineers at M.Tech./M.Chem.Engg. level in collaboration with  eight IITs viz. Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras,  Roorkee, BHU-Varanasi and also NIT-Rourkela and ICT-Mumbai.

The scheme also strengthens the research-education linkage with premier institutes of the country in areas of interest to DAE. The project work is carried out under the supervision of two guides, one from IIT and the other from DAE. The topics for M.Tech./M.Chem.Engg. projects are proposed by the DAE guides keeping in view the requirements of DAE and the M.Tech./M.Chem.Engg. specialization of the concerned DGFS Fellow.
