The Department of Mathematics, through its Integrated Ph.D. programme, offers exciting opportunities to talented students holding a Bachelor’s degree for acquiring a rigorous and modern education in mathematics, and for pursuing research in both pure and applied mathematics.

Admission to the Integrated Ph.D. (Int. Ph.D.) Programme in the Mathematical Sciences is through the Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM) followed by an interview (of those candidates who are short-listed) at IISc.
