Research Interview Process

Interview process of each stream is given below.

Candidates have to carefully review their eligibility and choose one research stream from the department, either CD-CP (Computational Science) or CD-CS (Computer and Data System) at the time of interview. A candidate can pick only one stream, and multiple labs within the stream. The written component and oral interview topics will depend on the stream selected.
