Course: Master in Medical Science and Technology (MMST)
Institute / University: Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur
Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, fondly referred to as IITKGP by its kin, right from its inception formed the bridge between India’s ancient wisdom and modern technology. From the inspiration of the tree of knowledge to the motto of yoga results in perfect action, IITKGP echoes Indian ethos of enlightenment. On the other hand, the inspiration was the model of education imparted at institutions like MIT with eminent faculty from Europe who joined the Institute in its formative years.
IIT Kharagpur started its journey in the old Hijli Detention Camp in Eastern India, where some of the country’s great freedom fighters toiled and sacrificed their lives for India’s independence. This is possibly one of the very few Institutions of the world that started life in a prison house. This Phoenix that rose from the struggles of a colonized nation, IITKGP today is a confluence of world class multidisciplinary courses, a cauldron of academic and corporate research, a thriving hub of entrepreneurship and an enabler of best-in-class placement. IITKGP is not just the place to study technology, it is the place where students are taught to dream about the future of technology and beam across disciplines, making differences enough to change the world.

The School of Medical Science & Technology at IIT Kharagpur, launched with the objective to provide a platform of interdisciplinary teaching and research in diverse areas of medical science and technology, offers an interdisciplinary three-year Masters Program in Medical Science and Technology (MMST), the first of its kind in the country. Admission to the MMST program is granted to MBBS doctors each year on the basis of the performance in an entrance test conducted all over the country. The MMST programme offered by the School is the only comprehensive physician-scientist training program in India which aims to bridge the gap that has historically separated biological sciences from engineering and physical sciences.
