Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM)
IIT Gandhinagar currently offers 4-year B. Tech. programmes in Chemical, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering and M. Tech. programmes in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering and in Materials Science and Engineering. In addition, the Institute offers the students the option to do a Minor in Computer Science or Management along with their B. Tech. degrees. It also offers Ph.D. progammes in several disciplines in Engineering (Chemical, Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Mechanical, and in Materials Science and Engineering), Sciences (Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics) and Humanities & Social Sciences (Cognitive Science, English, Philosophy, Sociology and others).
IIT Gandhinagar has acquired and/ placed orders for state-of-the-art research equipment such as Mass Spectrometer (Waters, Synpat G2S), 500 MHz NMR Instrument (Bruker); Powder XRD (Bruker), Multimode 8 Atomic Force Microscope, (Bruker), Scanning Electron Microscope (JEOL) for sample characterization and analysis. The NMR instrument is solid state ready and equipped for a wide range of nuclei. Other major facilities include UV-Vis spectrophotometer, Thermofisher is 10 FTIR spectrometer, Horiba Jobin Yvon Spectrofluorimeter and High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (Agilent). Chemistry has 24-hour access to Scifinder and online subscription to many journal publications.
The faculty is presently active in the areas of analysis, differential equations, numerical analysis – particularly as applied to partial differential equations, and optimization theory. Currently, the discipline has faculty strength of 5 members, which is likely to grow in the near future. At present the research interests of faculty members in the discipline comprise non-smooth optimization theory, variational inequalities and variational relations with applications, nonlinear functional analysis, elliptic partial differential equations, hp/spectral element methods, tensor decompositions, and numerical solutions of partial differential equations. Faculty members are actively involved in collaborating with members of other disciplines in the Institute in their joint research endeavors. Ph.D. programme has already been initiated and research scholars are working for their Ph.D.
M.Sc. programme in Mathematics, which is intended to be initiated in July, 2013, aside from exposing students to the fundamentals of domains of traditional mathematics such as algebra, topology and analysis will have many attractive novel features such as:
The focus of the 2 year M.Sc. program is to develop a deep understanding in core areas of Theoretical and Experimental physics, as well as to take advantage of the flexibility of our modern curriculum to introduce a wide range of advanced topics to the students. The flexibility allows students to choose advanced electives and chalk out a path towards a specialization of their choice. The 2 year program is unique in devoting a signigicant component of the minimum credit requirement towards developing research skills. Our program is geared towards creating outstanding students with a solid training in analytical, experimental and computational methods.
The institute has 24 hour online access to many Physics education and research journals, and more are added from time to time. Our library has an excellent collection of many modern and classic text/reference books. Large centralized experimental facilities like XRD, TEM, SEM etc. have already been setup in the institute. A high performance computational facility is also being developed, which includes multi-core as well as GPGPU computing facilities. The M.Sc. program will focus on training students at these computational and experimental facilities.
