Industrial/Academic-PhD/M.Phil (By thesis or publication)


           Presently, the ADVAN-KT franchised partners offer the exclusive and outstanding: 1) Industrial-PhD/M.Phil (By thesis or prior publication) and 2) Academic-PhD/M.Phil (By thesis or publication) programs. There are two routes to consider as the first one is designed for the industry to academic conversion* while the second one is designed for the academic to industry conversion**. In these two models: the awards are primarily determined by thesis and publication as well as the present and prior experiences. The master degrees modules are covered through the graduate mass open online courses (gMOOC)and completed by a thesis at the end. A total fee for the doctoral degree is USD 3650 (without scholarship) and for master degree is USD 3150 (without scholarship). However, the students may apply for advance standing category and also apply for Partial Dean's Scholarship (PDS), if eligible. Credit transferring students may have good opportunity for lower level of fees.

* In industry to academic mode : the learners will be guided to convert their monographs, industrial patents, innovations and modifications into academic documents, pertaining to academic publications or so. By doing so, the students will be exposed to academic context while continuing their services to the industry. This mode is almost similar to the 'PhD-by-publication' type but preparing the world class documentation is the primary concern for the doctoral/master degree completion.

** In academic to industry mode : the learners will be guided to convert their publications into industrial use or extending their existing research for the real world practice. By doing so, the students will be exposed to industrial practices while enhancing their skills for 'world-changing' output. This mode is more or less focusing on the traditional route, emphasizing on doctoral/master thesis with 1 or 2 conference/journal publications. As for the thesis format, Click Here.
