The regular Ph.D. program is open to students with a M.Sc. degree in mathematics, while the integrated program is open to candidates with a bachelors degree in science or engineering. The regular program consists of course work and projects for the first four semesters, followed by research work leading to a Ph.D. degree.

Course work

The course work is divided into three semesters spread over a period of one and a half years. Each semester is of roughly four months duration. In the first year, apart from the basic three compulsory courses, student need to audit one seminar course by talking to any one of the mathematics faculty members. In the third semester, there is one compulsory course and two elective courses will be taught.

Please see course syllabus for the first two sememsters of the course work.

Please see the mathematics timetable for the schedule of graduate course related activities in mathematics at HRI.

Admission procedure
