      IGIDR is specialised in the disciplines of Economic sand Development Studies. And M.Phil. in COmputer Science course in Distance mode may not be available in any institute. Many of the distance program in technology and engineering are not recognised by AICTE. We suggest you to go for regular course if possible! You can also think of courses offered by professional bodies.

      IGIDR is not offering M.Phil in Public Administration. The institute is meant for research in Economics and Development Studies.
