Many students asked me this question, whether they can join PhDright after B.Tech or not. If they can what are the minimum
qualifications and howdoes it impact their future. In this post I will discuss all the required things one need to understand after
B.Tech specially when you are targeting PhDfromIITs.
The answer to the question is, YES you can do phd right after B.Tech. In IITs for sure you can apply and join PhDright after
B.Tech. For non-engineering disciplines one must have M.Phil or would have cleared some research grant exams conducted at
national level.
For getting into IITs for PhDright after B.Tech you must have a valid GATE score higher is better. Apart fromthat the applicants
are shortlisted for interviewbased on their performance in previous exams like 10th, 12th and B.Tech percentages. The selection
committee needs a good reason to consider your candidature, like you topped in your school, or great in math or have shown
some inclination towards research and published some papers (in reasonably good conferences or journals).
PhDcan be very stressful and difficult, therefore professors usually prefer students fromM.Tech because they have learned the
subject more than B.Techs as they repeat many subjects in M.Tech and y they sustain higher mental stress than B.Tech students.
Also, they have higher understanding of what they are looking out of PhD. On the same time, B.Tech students also performgreat
if they have enough knowledge of the subject and willing to put effort to understand and apply the techniques they learn.
In IITs one needs to complete the designated credits to start PhD. There are 8 credits (2 or more subjects) for M.Tech passed
students, and 16 or 24 (4 or more courses) for B.Tech passed students to start research. I took more 10 courses fromdifferent
departments, because I felt the need to learn different methods to solves problems at hand. Most of my courses were from
Mathematics department.
For first two years you get stipend little higher than M.Tech students, but after completing course work and starting research you
will be treated as full time PhDstudent and stipend will be increased. You will have to pay tuition fee and hostel fee every
semester. That was around Rs. 10000/- when I was student a decade before.
Usually PhDafter B.Tech would take around 5 yrs, but this time depends on your supervisor. Do refer to Howto select a good
guide for PhDfor more details on howcan guide effect your life. Some professors are cool and let students go right after their
work is complete, sometime in just three years or four years.
If you are going to industry for job, not having a master degree is not an issue. But if you are considering academic opportunities,
issues can raised and effect your position. For job it also depends fromwhere you are doing PhDand what kind of work you have
been doing. For more on this please refer Howto choose a best place for doing PhD.
