Post Graduate Programs

The predecessor of the IIT Roorkee, the University of Roorkee, pioneered postgraduate programmes in engineering and technology, way back in 1955.

Admission to PG programmes is offered on the basis of GATE score and/or on the basis of the written test and interview. Non Resident Indians ( NRI ) and foreign nationals are also admitted to PG programmes. Sponsored candidates, including those through Quality Improvement Programme (QIP), form another channel for admission to these programmes. IIT Roorkee is the only institution in the country which has special PG programmes in Earthquake Engineering, Water Resources Development & Management, Hydrology, Welding Engineering, Alternate Hydro Energy Systems and Pulp & Paper Engineering.

Doctoral Programmes

Research programmes leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy ( Ph.D. ) are available in all academic departments of the Institute. While 159 new candidates were admitted to Ph.D. programmes, a total of 1574 candidates are working for their Ph.D. degree in the session 2014-15. The Ph.D. thesis is evaluated by the supervisor(s) and by three external examiners, two Indian and one abroad. If the examiners recommend acceptance of the thesis, a viva voce examination of the candidate is arranged at Roorkee. The recommendations of the Board of Examiners are considered by the Senate , which approves the award of Ph.D. degree to the candidate
