“Though there are 44 central universities, more than half of these were set up after 2009. They are still developing and many of them do not have their permanent campuses to operate from. The reason behind the minuscule percentage of institutes offering PhD degrees is poor funding. Apart from engineering, the research ecosystem in other disciplines lacks infrastructure and required financial support,” said RP Tiwari, vice chancellor, Central University of Punjab.

Maximum PhD candidates in engineering and technology

At the PhD level, the maximum numbers of students are enrolled in the engineering and technology stream followed by science. The engineering and technology stream is divided into 19 sub-streams with a total number of 52478 students enrolled for PhD and 1.77 lakh students at PG level.

Computer engineering has the highest number of 7682 students enrolled for PhD with 57.7 per cent male students. Mechanical engineering is the second-highest, having 6714 students with 91.2 per cent male students.
