Besides, the candidate is required to perform quite well in their research work and to get findings on the varied research conducted by themselves.

Ph.D. program runs in the same laboratory with other candidates, under the guidance of the same expert or guide in the even same specialized area, but the candidate is required to do own research, bring own findings and create a unique report. Ph.D. demands original contribution to the knowledge of the candidate, and this eventually turns the candidate into an expert one, after the completion of course.
