    Synonymous to Science

    Remarks -

    The institute is mainly devoted to science and research, so anyone planning to join should be highly motivated to do science. With high standards in research and high class infrastructure it is on of the best places currently in India to pursue some serious science. However, students who wish to go for a job as soon as they finish their finish their graduation should look for other options.
