M. Tech.

M. Tech. in Materials Science & Engineering
Materials Research Centre offers M.Tech program in Materials Science & Engineering which is a multidisciplinary program and covers everything from the basics of materials science - to the development of new materials for advance applications. The materials have wide application, and they can be used in petroleum activities, energy technology or for more everyday products such as knives. Material technology is therefore an important focus area for the industries. The two year program is divided into four semsters and the total minimum credits required for completing the M.Tech. programme in Materials Science & Engineering is 75. With a strong focus on developing research skills among the students, in frontier areas, the program includes the one year thesis component and seminars that would make the graduates suited to, and employable in, industrial, government R&D, and academic settings, spanning diverse areas such as electronics & communications, energy, chemicals, medicine, and transportation. The students can choose their thesis guide(s) within first semester of entering the program and can start working on their research topic leading to the M. Tech. thesis.
