It is a self-paced program of 48 credits that can be taken over 3-5 years. Similar to EMDS programme, students will do 24 credits of coursework in the first two years.

Selection Procedure
1.Candidates must fill an online application. Click here to go to the application page.
2.The selection will be based on written tests conducted in IIT Hyderabad in end of May.,followed by online interviews. The written test schedule will be published in the website after the last date of submitting applications is over. Candidates will be shortlisted for interviews based on written test performance.

  • However, due to the COVID-19 situation, there are uncertainties regarding the dates of the written exam. If the travel advisories by Government or the decisions taken by the institute/department prohibit travel and gathering, then the selection will be based on only interviews (no written test). In that case stricter shortlisting criteria will be followed, and the list of candidates shortlisted for the interviews will be put up in the website. In case we go ahead with this interview-only approach, all candidates may not be interviewed even if they satisfy the basic eligibility criteria. The department reserves the right to set any cut off criteria for shortlisting the candidates.
