Materials Science is an applied science concerned with the structure and properties of materials. Nanotechnology concerns objects that are extremely small, is an emerging multi-disciplinary field related with application of science, engineering and technology to develop novel materials at nano scale. This department offers an innovative M.Sc., program (two-year full-time) in Materials Science & Nanotechnology. The eligibility is B.Sc., degree with Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry subjects.
This program is designed to enrich the knowledge and produce highly employable post-graduates in a fast developing area of Nanotechnology. The course contents includes, fundamental and advanced subjects such as Concepts in Materials Science, Properties of Materials, Introduction to Nanoscience and Technology, Advanced Characterization Techniques and thrust subjects from catalytic materials, polymeric materials to Nanodevices and technologies. Laboratory courses mainly deal with synthesis, testing and application of (nano) materials is also offered as part of the curriculum. The successful out-going post-graduates can find hottest career choice such as nanotechnologists, material scientists, lecturers and related positions. The faculty members are also active in research and are receiving funds from various government agencies to conduct R&D projects.
