Department of Materials Science & Engineering

About the Department

The Materials Science and Engineering department is inherently an interdisciplinary Department that draws from practitioners relevant to a host of technological application areas, as well as the study of fundamentals of materials science. Materials research being a true interdisciplinary subject, demands expertise from both basic science as well as engineering field. The focus of research and development activities of the Department is towards the rational design of materials and processes, engineering of desired material structure and properties, development of synthetic and fabrication techniques, integration of materials in devices, characterization of materials and devices and development of prototypes. The department is structured to evolve along with the field by collaboration across disciplines to exploit latest breakthroughs in chemistry, physics, biology and emerging techniques from mechanical, chemical, electronics and computer engineering.
