Visiting Students Research Program

The Visiting Students Research Program is intended to orient students towards research in Mathematics. The programme is for students currently enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's programme and not for PhD students or faculty members in colleges or Universities.

Students doing a Masters degree with a good academic record and motivation for research are selected for the program. Exceptionally good and motivated students from BSc/BTech are also accepted.

Students selected under the programme are guided through an advanced Reading Course (or other appropriate project). This will afford students an opportunity to interact with leading mathematicians of the country. Special lectures aimed at introducing the students to advanced areas of mathematics are also organised.

Students will have access to the Institute's library and certain other facilities during the visit.
