Ph.D. Opportunities

SiliconTech, 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.

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

Interested students can register for Ph.D. at BPUT and do their course and thesis work under faculty guidance in SiliconTech.

Nodal Center for Research

SiliconTech, Bhubaneswar, is a Nodal Center for research under the state technical university, Biju Patnaik University of Technology (BPUT), Odisha. BPUT assigns eligible supervisors registered under the university to students selected for Ph.D. programs under BPUT.

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

More than 55% of our faculty have a Ph.D. with extensive research experience. Some of the faculty members are registered guides at various universities. Several research scholars studying under them have completed their dissertation work and received their Ph.D. degrees in different scientific and technical disciplines.
