Ph.D PROGRAMME (Full-Time or Part-Time),


Research is a systematic inquiry to describe, explain, predict and control the observed phenomena. Research involves inductive and deductive methods. It is a careful reflection of study regarding a concern or a problem using scientific methods.

At SoBAS, pushing the boundaries of knowledge and possibility is our joyful passion, and we celebrate fundamental discoveries and practical applications alike. As educators, we also value research as a powerful form of learning by doing. At SoBAS our faculty members, students and staff collaborate – with each other peers at other universities, funding agencies and industry partners – in pursuit of bold ideas and innovative answers. The School gives a lively environment to scholars, and it shines brightly through research that combines expertise from all disciplines to make advancements in creative endeavour. Modern advancements are made through collaboration and multi-layered input.

Our aim is to improve the world today and for future generations through outstanding research and scholarship. Our on-campus research capabilities are enhanced through the projects approved by DST, Government of India, and a wide range of various other collaborations.  To build our international research reputation, we are building a world-class research environment, promoting a culture of excellence and increasing research activity.
