Ph.D. Opportunities

SiliconTech, the engineering institute of  Silicon University with an established research base and extensive infrastructural facilities, offers Ph.D. programs in a wide range of areas in Engineering, Science, Humanities, Social Sciences, and allied interdisciplinary areas.

The Ph.D. program objectives are twofold: (a) to keep pace with the expanding frontiers of knowledge and (b) to provide research training to meet the demands of the social and economic growth objectives of India.

Silicon’s dedicated Research Center at its engineering institute campus, SiliconTech, anchors and supports an expanding research enterprise committed to producing new knowledge, strengthening existing scholarship and discovering solutions with the potential to benefit society.

More than 60% of our faculty have a Ph.D. with extensive research experience. Some of the faculty members are registered guides at various other universities. Several research scholars studying under them have received their Ph.D. degrees in different scientific and technical disciplines.


Nodal Center for Research

SiliconTech, the engineering institute of Silicon University is a Nodal Center for research. More than 60% of our faculty have a Ph.D. with extensive research experience. Interested students can register for a Ph.D. and do their course and thesis work under faculty guidance in Silicon.

All the processes related to their Ph.D. degree are as per the guidelines of Silicon University, including the coursework. Students undertake these activities under the direct supervision of their respective guides, nodal center co-coordinator, and the center head.


Interdisciplinary Research Opportunities

The University encourages research in interdisciplinary areas through a system of joint supervision and inter-departmental group activities. The presence of dedicated research-oriented faculty provides excellent opportunities for post-graduate students who join the Ph.D. program at Silicon.

Silicon has grant-funded sponsored research and development projects from industrial and other organizations in the public and private sectors, some of which could lead to a doctoral degree.
