  • Rules and Regulations governing PhD programme: Click here

A candidate seeking admission to the PhD Programme under School of Engineering and Technology (SOET) of NCU must have obtained:

1- M Tech (Engineering) degree with minimum 60 % marks in aggregate or equivalent (with NCU, NPET).

2- Science/Humanities, M.Sc. (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics)/MA (English, Mathematics) degree with minimum 60% in aggregate or Equivalent, with NET/GATE/JRF/SLET qualified for financial assistance by the government (NCU,NPET exempted) or 67.5% with (NCU,NPET).

3- B. Tech. degree from a Premier university or institution (IIT/NIT) and the institution within 100 NIRF ranking for the year of consideration with CGPA 8.5 or equivalent (with NCU,NPET) and GATE/UGC/CSIR score for government financial assistant (NCU,NPET exempted).

The minimum eligibility criteria indicated above for each Programme is only an enabling clause. The concerned Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) may fix higher criteria at the time of short-listing keeping in view the number of candidates, number of seats and minimum academic / professional background expected to cope with the Programme etc.

Candidates in the final year of their Master’s Programme, who expect to complete all their qualifying degree requirements before the date of registration for the first semester of their Ph.D. Programme at NCU can apply for admission. For short-listing purposes, their performance till the preceding semester (or preceding year, if in case their Programme is year based) would be considered, but the admission would be subject to their meeting the minimum eligibility criteria after their final qualifying examination results are announced. In such cases, a letter from HoD of their current institution, certifying candidate’s Master’s Thesis submission is required at the time of Ph.D. admission. However, if the student fails in the qualifying examination or fails to produce the degree/provisional certificate/mark sheet within 3 months of the commencement of the 1st semester, his/her admission and registration to the Ph.D. Programme will be automatically cancelled with no refund of the semester fees.

Candidates who do not have valid score in national tests like GATE, UGC-NET and SLET will have to appear in Entrance Test named ‘NCU Ph. D. Entrance Test’ (NPET) and will have the following weightage of various components for admission: NPET marks 50% , Qualifying degree marks – 30%, and Interview –20%. Candidates who have valid score in the above National tests shall be exempted from NPET. The following weightage shall be assigned to various components for the admission: NPET marks 50%, qualifying degree marks – 30%, and Interview –20%
