Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore offers admission to its four-year Bachelor of Science (Research) Programme in 2016. Students who will appear for the 12th standard board examination (or equivalent) in 2016 and those who have passed this examination in 2015 are eligible to apply for admission to this Programme. Details of eligibility criteria and the selection process are provided at the "How to apply" link above. Online applications will be received at this website via the "Online Application" link during February 1 - April 29, 2016.

A large number of young men and women enter the education system in India through undergraduate colleges and universities. This collective is the mainstay of national development. The character and quality of education they are imparted with at the undergraduate level make a major impact on the direction of the country's progress.

It is in this context that the Indian Institute of Science offers a unique 4-year Bachelor of Science (Research) programme. The graduates of this programme will obtain a Bachelor of Science (Research) degree in a specialization. This programme is carefully designed to offer specialization in a science subject, but the knowledge imparted carries a strong flavour of engineering and an exposure to social science disciplines. Students specializing in a Major subject are encouraged to take courses on other subjects, thus maintaining the strong interdisciplinary flavour of this Bachelor of Science (Research) programme. All students take core courses in Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering and Humanities in the first one and half years (I, II and III semesters). While specialization is introduced rigorously in the following year and a half (IV, V and VI semesters), the students are free (and are also encouraged) to choose electives from subjects other than their own specialization during this time. The course culminates with a research oriented project in the fourth year (VII and VIII semesters) supervised by a faculty.



Students who are appearing for the 12th standard board examination (or equivalent) in 2016 and those who have passed this examination in 2015 are eligible to apply.
