The Ph.D. programme at CMR University, seeks to inculcate in each research scholar the skills essential to become not only a qualified researcher, but also to excel in their chosen areas of research. At CMRU the emphasis has always been to elevate the quality of the research in order to contribute to the growing pool of knowledge in each discipline. We have ardently endeavored to groom scholars into committed academicians and scientists who are capable of conducting good, independent research in a responsible and ethical manner.
We work hard to balance ‘academic rigor’ and ‘practical relevance’ in our research. Our focus has always been on a cross-disciplinary knowledge flow. Our scholars are encouraged to attain globally accepted standards in their research. The rigorous course-work, facilitated by eminent academicians, prepares our scholars for research from the beginning itself. The programme is uniquely oriented towards application of both theory and knowledge as derived from Research. All of our Schools of Studies are equipped with state of the art laboratories and research facilities equipped to handle high-end result oriented research.
