Postgraduate Courses at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham
The philosophy and rationale of the postgraduate degree programmes at Amrita is to provide relevant skills and knowledge that will equip each student to pursue a career in their respective industries, as well as to pursue academic research careers. The students gain an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and the essential practical skills in the relevant areas.
All postgraduate programmes are research oriented. Thus students benefit a lot as they are introduced to the analytical and critical thinking, and the technical aspects of a given research problem. This also serves as one of the best ways of effective learning.
During their last semester each student spends part of their time in a reputed academic or industrial research laboratory where they are involved in the design and execution of a research project, which gives them an added advantage when it comes to placement.
Amrita also offers admission to research-oriented five-year integrated degree programmes, with an option given to the student to exit from the programme after 3 years with a bachelor’s degree in the respective course.
