IIT JAM/ UGCCSIR NET PHYSICS NOTES
The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) were created by a Parliamentary Act and are important national institutions. A renowned research and educational institution, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was founded in 1909. The IISc Bangalore and IITs are highly renowned around the world for providing topnotch management, engineering, and scientific education as well as conducting cuttingedge research. Building a solid knowledge base, pursuing excellence, and fostering creativity in a stimulating intellectual atmosphere are the goals of these institutions.
IITs began administering a Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. applicants in the Academic Session 2004–2005. (JAM). JAM's goal is to provide admissions to the M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.Ph.D., M.Sc.Ph.D. Dual Degree, and other PostBachelor Degree Programmes at the IITs, as well as the Integrated Ph.D. Degree Programmes at IISc, and to solidify Science as a viable career option for talented students from all over the nation. The JAM programme is anticipated to set a standard for scientific teaching at the undergraduate level nationwide. The IISc's Integrated Ph.D. programme was established in the early 1990s to allow students to enrol straight in a Ph.D. programme after earning their B.Sc. The Integrated Ph.D. Programs at IISc and the M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.Ph.D., M.Sc.Ph.D. Dual Degree, and other PostDegree Bachelor's Programs at the IITs provide topnotch education in their respective fields that is on par with the finest in the world.
