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.

Ph.D. programme in Materials Engineering

Ph.D. Programme: Students admitted to this entirely research oriented programme will be provided an opportunity to undertake research under the guidance of a faculty member of the School in an area of his/her choice and approved by the School. The student will be periodically advised by a doctoral committee. Students admitted to the Ph.D. programme will be required to undergo some course work depending on their background or take certain additional courses to meet the demands of their research. The research work, in part or in entirety, can be carried out either within the University or at one of its formally recognized external research centres. The students are expected to actively participate in research seminars and submit monthly progress reports of their research work. The Ph.D. requirements also include presentation of the research work in a comprehensive seminar prior to submission of the doctoral thesis and a subsequent oral examination in support of the thesis.
