JAM 2017

JAM 2017 is open to all nationals (Indian/Foreign). Candidates seeking admission to the academic programmes covered under JAM 2017 need to appear in JAM 2017.

From the Academic Session 2004-05, IITs have started conducting a Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM). The objective of JAM is to provide admissions to M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, M.Sc.-M.Tech., and other PostBachelor’s Degree Programmes at the IITs and Integrated Ph.D. Degree Programmes at IISc and to consolidate Science as a career option for bright students from across the country. JAM is expected to serve as a benchmark for the undergraduate level science education in the country. The Integrated Ph.D. Programme at IISc was started in the early 90’s to enable students to directly join for a Ph.D. degree after their B.Sc. Degree.

The M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, M.Sc.-M.Tech., and other Post-Bachelor’s Degree Programmes at the IITs and the Integrated Ph.D. Programmes at IISc offer high quality education in their respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The curricula for these programmes are designed to provide the students with opportunities to develop academic talent leading to challenging and rewarding professional life. The curricula are regularly updated at IISc and IITs. The interdisciplinary content of the curricula equips the students with the ability to utilize scientific knowledge for practical applications. The medium of instruction is English for all the above mentioned programmes.

Academic Programmes : The following are the full-time M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, M.Sc.-M.Tech., and other Post-Bachelor’s Degree Programmes at different IITs and Integrated Ph.D. Programmes at IISc to which admissions shall be made on the basis of JAM 2017.
