4.9 Seminar and Project Courses

Further details about these courses can be found in the booklet on “Rules, Procedures and Guidelines for Academics at IISER Mohali”.

Seminar Courses

There are three types of seminar courses at IISER Mohali during each regular semester. Master’s seminar courses are for attending (IDC351/IDC352) and delivering (IDC451/IDC452) seminars respectively. The PhD seminar courses (IDC601/IDC602) require students to attend and deliver seminars.

All students at the appropriate level are required to participate in these seminars. Evaluation will be based on participation and on the quality of the talk or poster (in the case of delivery courses).

Project Courses

Final-year students in the BS-MS programme are required to undertake two-semester projects (PRJ501/PRJ502) under the supervision of a designated guide.

Students in the Integrated PhD programme must undertake a semester long project (PRJ401 or PRJ402). The PRJ401 course envisages a single mini-project with a presentation at the end. The extended version of this is PRJ402 which has 4 additional credits.
