    I am extremely sorry if I am choosing the wrong place to ask this question. Please ignore this comment in that case.

    I have been called at IISc Bangalore for interview for admission to Phd in Nano Engg for Integrated Circuits (On 7th June). I will be graduating (BE Computer Science) this June.

    I find the emerging field of Nano Technology really interesting, and would love to invest my passion and time to research in this field as I believe, that Nano Tech is the next big thing.

    But I have absolutely no idea what to expect in interview..

    Can anyone guide me here? What kind of questions can I expect? I do have a specific research area in mind (which I can share if needed) . But, as I am still a novice in this field, I am not completely sure. How can I prepare best for interview?

    Thanks and Regards.

    Hello Jai

    I am not the right person to ask this question. However, I would suggest you take a look at Nano Engg’s website: http://www.nano.iisc.ernet.in/ and try to contact either the faculty (http://www.nano.iisc.ernet.in/Faculty.htm) or the students (http://www.nano.iisc.ernet.in/studentlist.xls) to know about the interview process.

    Best Wishes.
