Iit kanpur phd thesis proposal Justification for MS Type

Proposal for MS Type I and MS type II program in CSE

Justification for MS Type I program:

CSE department has had great difficulty in attracting good quality research engineers in their projects for a very long time now. Most graduates prefer to take up jobs after they graduate so candidates who come for project appointments are overwhelmingly those who have been unable to get a job. Such candidates are usually very weak and it takes several months before such engineers become productive in the project. Often, very soon after their skill sets have improved such people apply for and get regular jobs and leave the project. The MS-type I program will be a huge help for CSE projects where one can develop a high quality pipeline of research engineers in a project where the fresh and experienced engineers are simultaneously present. This should significantly improve project outcomes. We are asking for 10 seats in this program with at most 5 supported from institute resources.

Justification for MS Type II program:

CSE department has also had a lot of difficulty attracting high quality PhD students. Again the reason is the same. Most good students go for jobs or prefer to go abroad if they choose to do higher studies. A large pool of good quality students who currently do not have access to our PG programs in CS are the 3-years B.Sc students in disciplines like CS/IT, Mathematics, Statistics and Physics. Given that CSE has a significant number of faculty working in different areas of theoretical computer science (TCS) the B.Sc qualified students are likely to be a very good fit for a PhD in TCS after they have acquired adequate background in CS. The department is, therefore, proposing a Type II program for students with the B.Sc degree.

We think many of them may choose to convert to the PhD program. Even if they leave after an MS, at the very least they are likely to be much more productive in a research intensive MS program than the existing M.Tech program. We are asking for 10 seats in this program. In the first year the students will be self financed. In the second and third years they can be paid institute assistantship if they qualify GATE/NET/JRF.

Proposal for MS Type I program from CSE

Eligibility:

score.
• BTech/BE/BS(4 yrs) (any discipline) with CPI=7.5 or =75%, valid GATE CS score.
• BTech/BE/BS(4 yrs) /MSc in EC/EE/Electronics/Math, GATE score in EE/EC/Math should be in top 1.0% and CPI=7.5 or =75% in eligibility degree.
• All degrees should be in non-distance mode.
• Part-time or sponsored candidates do not need GATE qualification. Admission: Will be done as for MTech/PhD.

Number of seats: 10

Number to be supported through Institute Assistantship: 5

Structure of program:

• Total minimum credits: 144
• Minimum 36 credits of PG course work all electives. Additional course work may have to be done if recommended by the thesis supervisor/DPGC. This may extend the duration of the degree.
• Minimum 108 credits of thesis.

Proposal for MS Type II program from CSE

Eligibility:

• 3-years Bachelors degree in CS/IT/Computer Applications/Math/Stat/Phy with a CPI=7.5 or 75%.

• Degrees should be in non-distance mode.

Admission: Will be done through written test and interview at IIT Kanpur. To keep numbers manageable the cut-off norms for shortlisting may be stricter than the eligibility conditions and may involve cut-offs at class 10 and class 12 levels.

Number of seats: 10

Number to be supported through Institute Assistantship: At most 10 after the first year. First year will be in self-financed mode. In the second and third years they can be paid institute assistantship if they qualify in GATE/NET/JRF in CSE.

Structure of program:

• Total minimum credits: 216
• Minimum 90 (that is 10 courses) credits of course work which includes 6 compulsory courses: CS210, CS251, CS252, any three from from the basket:
and 4 PG
electives. Courses in the basket may be amended from time to time.
• Minimum 108 credits of thesis.
• Balance of 18 credits can be through course work or thesis.
• Additional course work may have to be done if recommended by the thesis supervisor or

DPGC. This may extend the duration of the degree.
