About the School
School of Applied and Interdisciplinary Sciences (SAIS) at IACS has been founded in May 2018 by reorganization of the erstwhile Polymer Science Unit, Center for Advanced Material, Director’s Research Unit and Organic Chemistry as part of the Academic Reform at IACS. Scientists from the Technical Research Center at IACS and recipient of DST Ramanujan Fellowship are also affiliated to the School. Current research activities at SAIS span over wide-ranging emerging interdisciplinary topics of Science and Technology including Soft Matter, Polymer and Supramolecular Science, Colloidal Science, Electronics and Photonics, Liquid Crystals, Drug Delivery, Chemical Biology, Environmental Science and others.


Faculties and Scientists at SAIS are committed to provide the highest quality of research training to the graduate students and postdoctoral research associates in the cutting edge research topics. SAIS has top class instrumentation and other facilities to address challenging research problems in the cross-disciplines of Science and Technology. They are very well funded by a number of extra-mural governmental and industrial project and recognized in the national and international community for their extraordinary research contribution.

SAIS, in collaboration with the School of Chemical Sciences, School of Physical Sciences, School of Biological Sciences and School of Material Sciences, offers two years Master of Science (MS) programme in Interdisciplinary and Applied Sciences. The programme aims to educate students in the up-and-coming areas of sciences by combining contemporary topics in Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. After successful completion of the course, the MS degrees will be conferred either on Applied Chemistry, Applied Biology or Applied Physics (corroborating with the subject in which a particular candidate had the Bachelor’s degree) with specialization in emerging topics including: (a) Biomedical Science; (b) Green Chemistry; (c) Polymer Science and Soft Matter; (d) Natural Products and Indian Ancient Medicine and (e) Sustainability and Energy. After successful completion of the course, students will be well prepared to enter into a doctoral programme in any of these highly important and promising areas of research, either in the institute or elsewhere. The programme is also expected to be highly beneficial for job opportunities in Industry as it offers adequate training (including substantial laboratory experience during the year-long master’s project) on topics which are of direct relevance to the interest of the Industries.

Research and Teaching


PhD Program: SAIS welcomes highly motivated students in its PhD programme in the Interdisciplinary and Applied Sciences. Students may enter into the PhD program either after successful completion of the MS program at IACS (from any School) or from other Universities/ Institutes after fulfilling the eligibility criteria for PhD. Current research activities at SAIS span over wide ranging emerging interdisciplinary topics of Science and Technology including Soft Matter, Polymer and Supramolecular Science, Colloidal Science, Electronics and Photonics, Liquid Crystals, Drug Delivery, Chemical Biology, Environmental Science and others. Interested students are encouraged to look at the individual faculty page for more information in the research activities of a group at SAIS. Students may then directly contact the particular research group of their choice for further information and availability of a position at a given time.

Postdoctoral Research Program: SAIS welcomes dedicated postdoctoral researchers to the school who are willing to take up challenging research topics in the interdisciplinary and applied sciences. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit the research group websites for further information and availability of position at a given time.
 

Master of Science (M.Sc.)/Integrated PhD: SAIS offers two years Master of Science program in the Interdisciplinary and Applied Sciences. The program aims to educate students in the emerging areas of science at the cross discipline of contemporary topics in Chemistry, Biology and Physics. After successful completion of the course, the M. Sc. degrees will be conferred either on Chemistry, Biology or Physics (generally corroborating with the subject in which a particular candidate had obtained the Bachelor’s degree) with specialization in following topics:

 

(a) M. Sc. in CHEMICAL Sciences (Polymer Science and Soft Matter) (Group C)

(b) M. Sc. in BIOLOGICAL Sciences (Molecular Biosystems and Biomedicine) (Group B)

(c) M. Sc. in PHYSICAL Sciences (Soft Matter) (Group P)

 

For each specialization, the course structure has been framed in a manner that is appropriate with the background of the student. In addition to the core courses, students will have the opportunity to choose discipline specific electives (DSE). Furthermore, they will be offered generic electives (GE) from a large number of courses offered by other schools including Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Materials in the institute. After successful completion of the course, students will be well prepared to enter into job or a doctoral programme in any of these important and contemporary interdisciplinary areas of research either in the institute (any School subject to clearing the eligibility criteria and consent from the supervisor) or elsewhere in India or abroad.

 

Total credit requirement: 100

 

Eligibility: Students from Chemical Sciences, or Biological Sciences, or Physical Sciences or General Sciences backgrounds are welcome to enter into the M. Sc. program of SAIS. The minimum eligibility criteria and other general terms and conditions remain the same as mentioned for the regulation of the M. Sc./ Integrated PhD programme of IACS.
