This is a four year integrated course offered to meritorious Science graduates (Physics/Chemistry Honors) with an aptitude for research. The programme aims at providing breadth in Computer Science along with domain specialization with an opportunity for thesis work in the final year.
Eligibility Criteria: Bachelor.s degree in Physics/Chemistry with Mathematics at the graduate level and a strong motivation for carrying out research in Computational Natural Sciences.
Often broadly described as new physics/chemistry/biology, a number of emergent areas in sciences require expertise in basic physical sciences as well as IT.
Some of these are:
The dual degree program will provide an excellent training in basics including a comprehensive learning in computer science, as well as an opportunity to carry out a one year research project culminating in a thesis. With the dual degrees, the program effectively enables the students to participate in the fast expending IT based industries like the nanotechnology, bio- and pharmaco-industrial R & D, etc
