DST Research Academy

The five years of IUCEE experience with over 200 engineering colleges in India has pointed to the very critical problem of faculty qualifications and quality. Majority of the faculty do not have a PhD, and even if registered for a PhD have inadequate research guidance due to the shortage of qualified guides. In most cases, PhD guides have far too many advisees and are located at distant campuses, resulting in very little interaction. The “eco-system” necessary for good quality PhD research guidance is missing. The proper eco-system needs researchers in a field to discuss their research problems regularly with each other and with expert guides. This problem is even more severe with female faculty members.
A large number of IUCEE US faculty have expressed willingness to help advise Indian faculty pursuing PhD degrees. In order to create an ecosystem for good research guidance, a pilot of the Research Academy for female faculty members was piloted at C.R.Rao Advanced Institute for Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science (AIMSCS), Hyderabad.

  1. Dear Dinesh, at this time, we are not in a position to get you a guide from overseas. You will first need to register with an Indian institution and Guide. After that we can try to get you the help of a US expert who may be willing to occasionally mentor you as a Co-Guide. Best, Krishna
