    PhD in software and content development for a cost-estimation and project-control tool

    Interested in research? Searching for good institutions to study PhD in software and content development? Find suggestions from experts on this page.

    I am BE (Civil) with 20+ years experience in the construction field. For the last few years, I have been working in the IT department of a reputed construction company in India on the development of a cost-estimation and project-control software.
    I have also developed the content (standard libraries etc.) of the tool. The tool has taken good shape and has been adopted well by my organisation.
    I would now like to pursue research in this field from a good institute in Chennai.
    Kindly advise me on the options available.

  • Typically Masters degree is required for getting admission in PhD.
    But some universities will allow BE graduates based on their experience and performance in written test and interview.
    Do not do PhD online or distance mode as in is not having any value and will not help you in your career.
    Do PhD from recognized university in full time or Part Time mode.

    Anna University,NIT Trichy and IIT offers PhD in Part time mode.
    Also contact SRM,VIT,SASTRA University etc
    Please check the university website for more details and contact the professors for more details
