M.S. Research



NOTE: includes only MSR



The MS Research in Transportation Safety and Injury Prevention is a multidisciplinary course offered to students from industry and academic institutes. The program is designed to meet the requirements of specialised and research-oriented professionals in transportation safety aspects. The program will focus on the Road Transport and Traffic Safety aspects in the following thematic areas:

1.                Road (Highway) planning and design interventions associated with traffic safety.

2.                Road user behaviour associated with traffic safety and sustainable transport systems.

3.                Safety aspects of new vehicle technology in mixed traffic.

All three areas require rigorous research methods, empirical studies as well as theoretical developments and applications of IT and data analytics to produce state-of-the-art research which has immediate as well as long-term relevance.

The students selected at TRIP-C will work on interdisciplinary projects that are not easy to pursue in the existing departments and centres.  The Centre is expected to get students with very different levels of academic preparation including social and life sciences in addition to engineering and mathematics backgrounds. MSR structure provides flexibility in planning the course work depending upon the students’ academic background and requirements of the proposed areas of research.

Program Structure

MS Research is a focused topic-oriented in-depth masters level program. The focus is on the depth of learning specific topics. Course work is required to give competency required for the specific research topic.

The M.S. (Research) programme will comprise 15 credits of course work and 36 credits of research work.  In the first semester, the student has to register for a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 15 credits. In the first semester, the part-time students can only register for course work with minimum and maximum limits of 3 and 12 credits, respectively. The course work must be completed by the end of the third semester; otherwise, the registration of the student will stand cancelled.

A preparatory course (self-study online) for 0 credits will be offered in summer and winter sessions to cover mathematics topics of class 12 of CBSE syllabus. The credits earned will not be counted toward the degree credit requirements.

Additional information about M.TECH. (High-Value Assistantship) and M.S.(Research) Programmes

The minimum duration of M.S.(R) programmes is 4 semesters (24 months) for full-time students and 6 semesters (36 months) for part-time students. The minimum credit requirement for the M.S.(R) degree is 60 credits including the thesis.

M.Tech.(High Value Assistantship) is a three years programme. The student must devote 20 hrs. per week in departmental laboratories.

M.Tech. and M.S.(R) programmes mainly differ in the fraction of course and project/thesis credits. M.Tech. programmes have two-thirds of the credits for the course work while MS(R) programmes have two-thirds of the credits for the thesis component.

Flexibility of movement: Very recently, IIT Delhi has adopted major changes in its rules and regulations. These changes enable easy mobility of students from M.Tech. to PhD, M.Tech to MS(R), MS(R) to M.Tech. and MS(R) to PhD. With these changes, it is now possible for a student to join M.Tech./MS (R) at IIT Delhi and then they can apply for a change to a research programme if they feel confident. In this process save a considerable amount of time to complete Ph.D.

Admission schedule: Normally, M.Tech.(High Value Assistantship)/MS(R) programmes are advertised in the month of March/October each year in the Employment news as well as in leading newspapers and admissions are carried out in the month of May/December. Further, just like Ph.D., admission, admission to MS(R) programmes is also possible at any time in the year through DRC/CRC/PEC. They can be admitted to the institute at any time of the year, though course registration in such cases will be possible only at the beginning of the subsequent semester. Such candidates must also fulfil the required academic qualifications /experience at the time of the interview. They must join the institute within 4 weeks after the issue of the admission offer unless specifically permitted otherwise. Admission is subject to the vacancy being available in the relevant specializations.

Part-Time programmes: IIT Delhi offers most of its MS(R) programmes in the part-time mode for working professionals. They are expected to complete their credit requirements in six semesters (maximum of ten semesters) by registering for a lower load than full-time students in each semester. Departments /Centres offer most of the core courses between 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM to enable these working professionals to attend classes as well as continue with their full-time employment. Please note it may not always be feasible to slot all courses of the programme in the morning and those candidates applying for part-time programmes should be flexible to take courses at other times if required.
