The goals of the post graduate programmes at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur are: The development of high quality scientific and engineering manpower with a broad grasp of the fundamental principles of sciences and the scientific methods, deep understanding of their areas of specialization, innovative ability to solve new problems, and the capacity to learn continually and interact with multi- disciplinary groups. Above all, the students should develop the capacity for free and objective enquiry, courage and integrity, awareness and sensitivity to the needs and aspirations of the society. The programmes are designed to impart knowledge, strengthen concepts and intellectual skills through course work, seminars and project/thesis work and thus cater to the needs of Industry, R & D organizations and educational institutions. These programmes are intended to prepare students to enter their professions with a perspective and breadth of knowledge related to the principal divisions of their respective fields of specialization through courses and research experience. A post-graduate student will typically be enrolled for three or four courses each semester until he/she has fulfilled all the course requirements. The thesis work is aimed at providing the research experience in the relevant field of specialisations. This brochure provides general information sought by those seeking admission at IIT Kanpur in any of the following approved postgraduate programmes.
