Course programme

School of Engineering Sciences & Technology

The University has recently established a School of Engineering Sciences & Technology (SEST) with a mission to pursue high quality research and impart research-led education in emerging multi-disciplinary areas encompassing science, engineering & technology. SEST provides a perfect environment to pursue cutting-edge cross-disciplinary research by taking advantage of the already well-established schools of study on campus, particularly Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics & Computer/Information Sciences and Life Sciences, that have an enviable track-record. SEST will offer courses/research projects in collaboration with these Schools as well as the Nano-Science/Technology Centre, Advance Centre for Research on High Energy Materials and Central Instrumentation Laboratory. SEST also expects to collaborate closely with premier research institutions in the vicinity, such as DMRL, ARCI, IICT, DRDL, RCI, NFTDC etc., and forge close linkages with diverse Indian industries to build a vibrant program spanning high-quality scientific and applied research.

SEST has initiated its academic programme with an integrated M.Tech./Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from the academic year 2008-09. Consistent with its ethos, the School will progressively ramp up by identifying and pursuing programmes in other frontier areas spanning diverse engineering disciplines and covering varied aspects such as design, synthesis, processing, characterization and application development. Pertinent facilities relating to the areas of solid state physics, solid state chemistry, nanotechnology, thin films, material characterization etc. are already available at the University to be accessed by the Materials Engineering programme. Additional core infrastructure is being set-up in identified areas for teaching and research purpose and efforts are being made to attract best faculty to establish SEST as an excellent seat of learning for post-graduate education and research in engineering.

Integrated Ph.D.in Materials Engineering

Integrated M.Tech./Ph.D. Programme: Students admitted to this programme have the option of continuing to the Ph.D. programme after completion of the M.Tech. degree. The M.Tech. programme is of two-year duration, of which the first two semesters will be devoted to course work. The curriculum lays an emphasis on giving a broad exposure to all aspects of materials engineering, consistent with the interdisciplinary nature of the subject today, and students also take elective courses. The balance of the two-year period will be spent by students on a research project leading to a dissertation, which will have to be defended in a viva-voce examination. The project work can either be done within the University or at one of the recognized external institutions, an R&D Laboratory, or an industry. This gives the students freedom to pursue research in a variety of specialized areas within the broad theme of materials science and engineering.
