“The purpose of education is to make good human beings with skill and expertise….”
Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam
In India, as per an AISHE survey, of all the students enrolled in university education less than 1% are enrolled in PhD studies. There are less than 3% institutes in India that offer Doctoral level studies.
To address this shortcoming and to provide an opportunity for candidates to enhance their research acumen and qualifications KPGU is offering a recognized Ph.D programme in varied subjects that cover Engineering and Technology, Pharmaceutical sciences and basic Sciences.
The research scholar at KPGU is offered the right research milieu to equip him/her with the skills necessary to make a high impact on research and development in various fields. The research may range from pure to applied and conceptual. A doctorate from KPGU will prepare a research scholar in advancement in his/career and will be able to contribute to Industry, Research Institutes or the Academia at par with global expectations. A Ph.D. from KPGU provides the candidate the opportunity to enroll for Post-Doctoral studies anywhere in the world.
