The five-year BS-MS program is the flagship programme of the IISERs. The programme aims to integrate the conventional bachelors and masters programs into a more holistic experience, bringing together conventional disciplines in the biological, chemical, physical, earth sciences and mathematics. It focuses on the unified nature of science and aims to train some of the brightest young minds of our country, through some of the best practitioners of science in India. Students are encouraged to take part in research activities, both in IISER and in other leading research laboratories, thus leveraging the symbiotic relationship between conventional education and research.
