IIIT now has a decent faculty : 6 numbers. 3 of them hold doctoral degrees. Other three are on the verge of completion.
We feel that it is a good time to start our Ph.D. programme. It will be consistent with the objectives of the Institute. The programme should have a slow start rather than a kick start. It should be a low key affair rather than a fanfair.
To start with we should start with may be a couple of students. The entire institute will work with them to make it a worth while programme.
Rather than a symbolic programme, it will be a programme which will bring us respect among our peers for the quality and the rigour of the programme.
