Welcome to CIPET Doctoral Programs - Our Ph.D. students redefine the landscape when it comes to Plastic Technology Research. Students can pursue their doctoral program at any one of our 3 SARP (R&D) centres viz. APSTPS-Chennai, APDDRL-Bengaluru and LARPM-Bhubaneswar. Those who are selected for doctoral programs, benefit from individual focussed guidance and help in identifying research opportunities. We also counsel our students on making their research public through appropriate presentations and impactful publications. SARP centres are equipped with state-of-the-art research facilities and equipment that is on par with international standards.


Our research scholars' work has real impact that goes beyond academia. The research is done under the guidance of a faculty member of the SARP. On completion, there is a public discussion of the research paper in an in-house departmental formal seminar, and then in a public research presentation, the written work will be examined by a dissertation committee as appointed by respective affiliated University.

A few areas of research pursued at Research centres are:

  • Polymer Composites and Nanocomposites
  • Biopolymers & Bionanocomposites
  • Polymer composites
  • Polymer Blends and alloys
  • Fuel Cells & Energy storage devices
  • Carbon Nanotubes
  • E-Waste Recycling
  • Reverse Engineering Applications
  • New Product Development
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Simulation & Modelling for product & processes
  • Metal to Plastic Conversion
  • Computational Flow Analysis


Aspiring candidates have to follow the admission and course procedure as that of the respective universities to which the respective SARP is affiliated. Candidates may visit the websites of the affiliated universities for complete information on Ph.D. programs:
