IISER Mohali and all IISERs are the top preferred institutes to learn Basic Science. This is a place where you can find the entire India studying together. Like the students are coming from all states of India particularly from Kerela, Bengal, etc. As I said it is heaven, because here the quality ,exposure and enthusiasm for science are much much better than any place in India. It is competitive to the foreign science institutes. Graduates from this institutes do Ph.D. from MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, Max Plank, USA- Germany- Japan any many more places. Summer Research Programme gives good exposure to the students. Acceptance and Demand of IISER student are very high in europian countries. At last, Thankyou IISER Mohali to give me an opportunity to study here.

IISER Mohali promotes research and education oriented in a manner to foster the needs of the scientific world. It provides Integrated BS-MS , Int. PhD and PhD courses.The institute does not have its placement cell because the idea is to increase the number of students going for higher research. The labs are well established with various facilities like X-Ray diffractometer and NMR. Since the course work is designed in a manner to fulfill research-oriented goals, it has several drawbacks specially for int. Ph.D. programme where it is almost a repeat of what is taught in undergraduate level. The faculties are really good with their formal education completed from eminent institutes. Apart from this, the campus life is really amazing with real good hostels and great food (sometimes!).

College career pursuits and faculty

Posted on 21 May' 15 by Megha
The college is good for those who want to pursue science as their careers. It offers three courses, i.e. , BSMS dual degree program for students completing their 12th, integtated Phd for those who have completed their batchelours in any one of the science subjects and Phd course for scientific research scholar. The college has well established laboratories which offers a great environment to do research. Since it is a new college people have not much knowledge about the college but the college us set up by central govt and has a stamp of indian institute hence it has promises good future. Students completing MS degree from here goes for Phd abroad india. Hostel life is great. Students are provided with single rooms and you have all facilities. You have a canteen running till 12 midnight. The fees is nominal. One if the highpoints of this coolege is that it offers scholarship of rs 5000 to all students who maintain their cpi above 6 which is very easy. The admission procedures is available online. The faculty are all foreign returns and have a great knowledge of subject but let me warn you course here requires really hardwork. All the best. For further knowledge you can visit in.
