Bose Institute has an established Ph.D. programme in physical sciences, life sciences and interdisciplinary sciences. Many of our alumni have become reputed experts in their fields. The institute is a national pioneer in research on astroparticle physics and cosmic rays, foundations of quantum physics and interdisciplinary physics. Path-breaking research in the fields of plant sciences, structural biology, molecular biology, biomedical sciences and biotechnology has been conducted at the Institute.
Dissemination of knowledge has been an integral part of the charter of Bose Institute as proclaimed by Acharya Sir J. C. Bose in his foundation speech in 1917. A major step in this direction was taken in 2006 when Bose Institute started M.Sc courses in physical and biological sciences. The course in physical sciences was initiated in collaboration with St. Xaviers college, Kolkata. The course in biological sciences was started in collaboration with the University of Calcutta.
The success of both of these courses was quite encouraging. Therefore, the M.Sc. courses were transformed into integrated M.Sc - Ph.D. courses. The integrated M.Sc. - Ph.D. course was initiated for life sciences in 2011 and for physical sciences in 2012.
