Overview

Mahindra University, notified by the Government of Telangana vide Telangana Ordinance No. 1 of 2020 dated 20th May 2020, announces the launch of its 2nd Batch of Ph.D. admissions in the Fall 2021 Semester starting in Sep-Oct, 2021.

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is acknowledged to be the highest university degree that is conferred on a doctoral student who successfully defends her/his Ph.D. thesis in front of a panel of experts in the field appointed by the University after having spent a stipulated time and having achieved publications in reputed international journals and conferences.

The first year would require the Ph.D. candidate to go through a set of prescribed course work followed by initiation to research and comprehensive examination and carrying out actual research with the Ph.D. Adviser. The journey to earning Ph.D. degree typically goes through a cycle of four phases involving preparation, challenges, small and big successes and ultimate joy of successful defense of the written thesis. Completion of a thesis, depending on individual performance, typically may take about 4 years.
