After my B.E , I want to do a Ph.D in maths. Even if I hold a B.E degree should I have to do B.Sc and M.Sc maths? Can't I go straight for Ph.D?

(Please forgive me if the question is silly)

TopNewestI don't think doctorate courses allow bachelors directly. You need to have a masters degree to get into Ph.D. However if you are in integrated courses then you are allowed. But you need to have Postgraduate (PG) qualification anyway.

Doing Ph.D after PG is better (easier) than after graduation. But there are cases (exceptional) who did Ph.D after graduation (without PG). Moreover in Ph.D you will be required to submit thesis, so you need to have a (very) solid background in maths.

I would suggest after B.E go for M.Math course, offered by ISI (Kolkata & Bengaluru), for 2 yrs. Then go for a Ph.D. And then (may) Post-Doctorate.

Is an M.Sc alone is enough? No need for B.Sc?

Before MSc you need BSc in math \(OR\) B.E or Btech with Maths as a major subject . Any graduation course with major in maths allows you to go for Msc in Maths.

I know a persons who did B.tech ans M.tech in electrical engineering and then did PhD in maths.So there is that way too - after engineering you can get a PhD in maths.

It is good that you have an interest in pursuing PhD in math. For start, it is not necessary that you have a M. Sc or M. Tech degree to apply for PhD in math.

You can have a B. Tech degree and be GATE qualified OR should have passed JRF exam conducted by CSIR or DST.

But a P.G degree is required to apply for JRF , no?

Yes you can directly go for PhD in iits if you have a decent mark in gate else if you are already from a central institute with 80% marks.

What do you mean by "directly"?

Gate scores are required and it is good if u have a conference paper published.
