The main objectives of postgraduate education, e.g. M.Tech and Ph.D are to prepare intellectual leaders who will do the groundwork to create new paradigms and products for tomorrow. Postgraduate education needs to provide deeper experience in the values, norms, and practices of the chosen profession while also developing the skills, tools, and habits of inquiry within a discipline.  Hence, when it comes to postgraduate education, the quality concerns are much more important than quantity concerns.

According to a 2010 Nasscom report, India&rsquos fast growing engineering R&D services industry has reached $10 billion and employing about 85,000 engineers and it is still growing. In this background there is a greater demand for PhD qualified personnel who have acquired research experience at least in academic environment.

The main objective of this program is to impart practical knowledge on research methodology which is very essential for successful completion of PhD. Research methodology is vital for PG students especially those pursuing or planning to pursue their master and/or doctorate degree.
