The Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) was started at IISER Bhopal in 2015 with the aim of promoting inter-disciplinary research and education between basic sciences and engineering. Faculty members of this department are actively involved in research in various core areas of electrical engineering and computer science, as well as in a few inter-disciplinary areas.
The department currently offers two academic programs. One is a PhD program and another is a 4 year BS program.
Our PhD program offers an opportunity for students to work in several exciting areas of research. Some of the major attractions of our department are academic freedom and approachable faculty. IISER Bhopal also offers excellent infrastructure and a beautiful campus as an added bonus. Admission to our PhD program takes place twice a year (Jan and July) and applications are usually invited in October and April. For more details, please click here .
The 4 year BS program in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is unique in the sense that it exposes the students to basic concepts of both electrical engineering and computer science, thereby making them better prepared to take on diverse roles in the industry and academia. This is in recognition of the emerging trend in which several aspects of computer science are finding increasing use in electrical engineering, and vice versa. This program is designed to have a common set of core courses which all students have to go through and some elective courses that the students can choose as per their interests. Students enrolled in this program can get a Dual Degree (BS-MS) by spending an additional year, which will largely consist of research work.
