M.Tech(Research)/Ph.D. admissions information
The interview process for the Computational Science stream has two stages: Written and Oral (both conducted on the same day).
Written component (Duration: 30 minutes): Total Points 5×2=10
(a) Two mandatory questions, one from polynomials, functions, plotting, etc and another is a programing question
(b) Answer any three out of five questions asked from the following subjects: Elements of Engineering Mathematics: Linear Algebra/Matrix Analysis, Probability and Statistics, Differential Equations and Numerical Methods.
Oral Interview: Candidates who are successful in the written component will attend an oral interview before a CDS-CP faculty committee. In the oral interview, you will be questioned on:
– Basic Area Subjects: Linear Algebra; Numerical Methods; and Probability & Statistics. Final year engineering undergraduate level preparation is required
– Advanced Topics: Any one of the topics: Matrix Algebra, Numerical and Functional Analysis, Numerical Solution of ODEs and DAEs, Finite element methods, Signal processing, Stochastic Calculus,Computational Biology and Structural Bioinformatics, Graph Algorithms, Structural Biology and Bioinformatics
