Companion is a form of kinship relation designed to provide academic and/or non-academic support to each individual research scholar of the institute. This relationship will give PhD students a platform to facilitate interaction amongst themselves and to express their thoughts and feelings easily.
The IRSCP is in effect from the academic year 2012-2013, and is monitored by the Dean AP office. Students are requested to make best use of the resources made available to them by the IRSCP.
Institute Research Scholar Companion Programme, (IRSCP) is a programme for the PhD Community of IIT Bombay with the primary objective to cater to the needs of research scholars.
There were almost everything where I got stuck. Starting from registration to all the way to sitting in an online class. I was able to pass each step smoothly only after contacting IRSCP team. It has done tremendous work in supporting students like us and that too in ASAP mode.It worked like a complete package of helpfulness in administrative, academia, financial as well as personal issues for me.
Getting selected to one of the best colleges of India was equally daunting as exciting given the COVID-19 scenario. But from the very beginning, the IRSCP team was with me guiding me through every single step till I became comfortable with the new normal of online classes and long distance functioning. My success till now would not have been possible without them. I cannot thank enough the whole team for their commendable work.
I was oblivious on what to expect from such an institute. There was an overwhelming sensation once I received the offer letter. From the time I received the offer letter till the end of the semester, IRSCP helped in understanding the necessary details. They also guided me and my friends to get a bird’s eye view of the IITB system.
I was nervous before coming to the institute. Being one of the prestigious institutes on India, I was very well under pressure on what is expected from me. But, with the help of IRSCP and my mentor, I was able to glide through the initial process. Whenever I needed guidance, my mentor was there. It helped me a lot. Thanks IRSCP!!
