5 Year BS-MS Dual Degree Programme

IISER Kolkata offers a 5 Year Bachelor of Science and Master of Science (BS-MS) Dual Degree Programme in synchrony with other IISERs. Admission to the BS-MS programme is conducted through a common annual summer selection. IISER Kolkata offers a unique training programme to the selected candidates through a balanced schedule of class room lessons, project and research work. While the Institute aims to comprehensively train the students in each of the major subjects, much attention is also directed to the development of the interdisciplinary skills. The broad outline of the training programme is as follows:

In the first year, all students are introduced to basic sciences, viz., Biological, Chemical, Mathematical, Physical and Earth Sciences, as well as Computer Programming and Humanities courses. In the second year, the students select three pre-major subjects from the first five disciplines mentioned above. In the third and fourth years, students study a major subject from the three pre-major subjects chosen in the second level and need to take interdisciplinary courses as electives. The fifth year is almost completely devoted to full time research/technical project/specialized training in which the students need to prepare a dissertation. At the end of the fifth year, both Bachelor and Masters Degrees are awarded to successful students.
