GIKI Graduate Admissions 2014

The Graduate Program at GIK Institute is ensured to be of international standards and will constitute a significant step towards reducing our reliance on advanced countries for higher training in the engineering sciences. The faculty, equipment, laboratories and library facilities provide easy access for the students to the latest corpus of knowledge in their fields of specialization. Our students may have opportunities to complete part of his/her studies at reputed universities abroad under the split degree program.

The GIK Institute graduate program is expected to be a major stride in the evolution of engineering education and research in the country and bringing about a qualitative change in this field. It is envisaged that this will promote productive liaison between the Institute and industry. The research component will focus mainly on the problems of national industry; will act as a conduit for the inflow of latest know-how because of the collaboration with universities and research organizations in the advanced countries. Hence the program will produce engineers and technologists who have the urge, the attitudes, and the skills to lead techno-industrial transformation of the country.

The GIK Institute has undertaken an exciting venture in engineering education and research of the highest order and provided to its students, facilities for professional training and growth for which studies at universities of advanced countries were considered indispensable. The Institute welcomes Graduate students to participate in this venture by joining one of its graduate programs.

Program of Study

The Graduate School offers MS and PhD degrees in the following areas:

  • Computer Systems Engineering
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Engineering Sciences (including Applied Mathematics & Applied Physics)
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Materials Engineering
  • MS in Nanotechnology and Materials Engineering
  • MS in Energy Systems Engineering
  • MS in Engineering Management


The admission to the MS and PhD degree programs of the Institute is decided on the basis of candidate’s earlier educational achievements and his score in the admission test (GRE subject type) and interviews. There are no special quotas, reserved seats or admission by donations. Nor is there any arbitrary age limit for the applicants. In fact, the Institute is open to all persons of either sex and of any religion, color, creed, class or domicile who are academically qualified for admission to the courses of study offered by the Institute, and no such person shall be denied the privileges of the Institute on the grounds only of sex, religion, color, creed, race, class or domicile.”

Female Students

Because of revolutionary developments in the technological fields, engineering is no more an exclusively male domain and offers a host of highly rewarding careers, which suit the special endowments of women. The Women Engineers Society (WES) of the Institute also assists the female students in career building / internsh­ips and encourages students to pursue a professional career. The Institute has a girls’ hostel with all the modern amenities and sports facilities for female students.
