5.3. The Electronics department in Thapar will conduct the first screening interview for interested and eligible candidates.
5.4. Thapar will give TAU a list of eligible students, their GPA (following 5 semesters), ranking in class, and Thapar interview evaluation.
5.5. Finally, selected candidates will be interviewed via skype by the School of Electrical Engineering faculty at TAU (together with 1-2 colleagues).
Question 6. What fellowships will be received?
6.1. During the first semester, the Thapar students will not receive any fellowship from TAU, as they will focus on completing their B.Tech. degree here at TAU. But sometimes, it depends on their advisor. If he allows them to do research work, they can get a fellowship from the beginning of the first semester. From the second semester onwards, students start with their research work and MSc courses. The fellowship begins from then onwards. MSc students receive a fellowship of approximately 3400-4200 NIS or maybe more, depending on their advisor and faculty of engineering. It should be emphasized that fellowship given to Thapar students can be re-evaluated towards the beginning of every academic year.
6.2. TAU will reserve a dorm room for each Thapar student. The students are responsible for the payment. Thapar institute will give the students a scholarship of $4800 during the first (but not second) year at TAU. This scholarship typically covers approximately half of the dorm's room expenses, depending on the room type availability. During the second TAU year, the students will not receive any particular scholarship for the dorms.
