Our integrated Masters (M.S.) program aims to integrate the conventional bachelors and masters programs into a more holistic science education experience, bringing together conventional disciplines in the biological, chemical, mathematical and physical sciences. The program focuses on the unified nature of science and aims to train some of the brightest young minds of our country, through some of the best practitioners of science in India. Our students are encouraged to take part in research activities, both in IISER and in other leading research laboratories , thus providing them a symbiotic relationship between conventional education and research.
In the first two years, there are comprehensive courses in all areas of basic sciences, viz., mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology. In the third and fourth years, students choose courses based entirely on their own interests. The fifth year is devoted to a research projects that will lead to a masters thesis.
