The Master of Science and other post-B.Sc. programmes at the IITs offer high quality post-graduate education in respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The current pace of advancement of technology needs a coherent back up of basic science education and research. The vibrant academic ambiance and research infrastructure of the IITs motivate the students to pursue R&D careers in frontier areas of basic sciences as well as interdisciplinary areas of 

science and technology.

The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are institutions of national importance established through an Act of Parliament. The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) is a premier research and teaching institute established in 1909. The IISc Bangalore & IITs are well known, the world over, for quality education in engineering, science, management and research in frontier areas. The aim of these institutes is to build a sound foundation of knowledge, pursue excellence and enhance creativity in an intellectually stimulating environment. The current pace of advancement of technology needs a coherent back-up of basic science education and research. The vibrant academic ambience and research infrastructure of IISc Bangalore & IITs motivate the students to pursue Research and Development careers in frontier areas of basic sciences as well as interdisciplinary areas of science and technology. Further, IISc and IITs have well equipped modern laboratories, efficient computer networks and state-of-the-art libraries. The teaching process is structured to promote close and continuous contact between the faculty and the students. A number of financial assistantships are available to SC/ST and other deserving and meritorious students at individual institutes. From the Academic Session 2004-05, IITs started conducting a Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM). The objective of JAM is to provide admissions to M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, and other Post-Bachelor Degree Programmes at the IITs and the Integrated Ph.D. Degree Programmes at IISc and to consolidate Science as a career option for bright students from across the country. JAM is expected to serve as a benchmark for the undergraduate level science education in the country. The Integrated Ph.D. Programme at IISc was started in the early 1990’s to enable students to directly join for a Ph.D. Degree after their B.Sc. Degree. The M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, and other PostBachelor’s Degree Programmes at the IITs and the Integrated Ph.D. Programmes at IISc offer high quality education in their respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The curricula for these programmes are designed to provide the students with opportunities to develop academic talent leading to challenging and rewarding professional life. The curricula are regularly updated at IISc and IITs. The interdisciplinary content of the curricula equips the students with the ability to utilize scientific knowledge for practical applications. The medium of instruction is English for all the above mentioned programmes.

ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES The following are the full-time M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, and other Post-Bachelor’s Degree Programmes at different IITs and Integrated Ph.D. Programmes at IISc to which admissions shall be made on the basis of JAM 2018. i.

After completing the third semester of the M.Sc. Programme: (a) Those students securing CGPA > 8.5 and having expressed their desire to continue in writing are eligible to opt for the Ph.D. Programme. Final selection will be based on the written test, interview and other short listing criteria set by the Institute. Those not selected and those who do not opt for the Ph.D. Programme will exit with an M.Sc. Degree. (b) Those with CGPA
