  M.Tech. + Ph.D. Dual Degree Programs
    Starting July 2019, IIT Jodhpur has started MTech-PhD dual-degree programs.
These are five-year programs particularly for those students who have an inclination towards research. Students who have completed B.Tech. are eligible to join this program. Students complete their M.Tech. course work and then start their doctoral research and earn both the M.Tech. and Ph.D. degrees at the end of the program. One distinctive aspect of these programs is that the students get fellowship equivalent to that of a JRF from their first year itself.
    Academically, these programs facilitate students to decide their area of research by the end of first semester. After going through a rigorous coursework in the first two years, they start working towards the academic requirements of a PhD that include a comprehensive exam, state-of-the-art seminar and periodic reviews. The students can also work on industry projects and collaborate with faculty from other academic/research bodies.
    The Department of CSE is currently offering two such programs: MTech-PhD Dual-degree in CSE and MTech-PhD Dual-degree in AI. The salient features of these programs are:
          (1) Advanced courses that provide a deep understanding of the mathematical and scientific concepts of both core and applied aspects, and the ability to apply them through rigorous assignments and projects.
       (2) Flexibility to choose the electives from a wide range of intra/inter-departmental courses as per the interest and current trends.
       (3) Opportunities to pursue a long-term internship in industry or other institutes that may contribute a part of the Ph.D. thesis.
       (4) Opportunity to design and develop sophisticated software and/or hardware-based solutions with interdisciplinary research to address emerging requirements in a variety of domains such as Manufacturing, Fintech, Healthcare, Education, Human-machine interaction, Computing technologies, etc.
       (5) 24x7 access to state-of-the-art computing resources.
