This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Thanks for the helpful article. I believe that B.E is really very promising and multifaceted, but you should pay attention together with https://craftresumes.com/ for writing an attractive resume and for getting a good job with Ph.D degree. Since the Internet network is becoming a huge competitor for the usual telecommunications

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.

I 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.

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.

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.

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

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