88. METALLURGICAL AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING WITH M. TECH. IN MATERIALS ENGINEERING
(Code : R5242)
The twenty first century Materials Engineers demand more than just the fundamental knowledge of the production, shaping and treatment of alloys. They have to achieve the balance between material properties such as cost, weight, strength, toughness, hardness, corrosion, fatigue resistance and performance under extreme conditions of stress and temperatures.
Moreover, new materials are the vehicle for realizing new technologies which is central to the growth, prosperity, security and quality of life since recorded history. Properties of a material are intimately related to its structure at all length scales down to the atomic dimensions and novel materials need to be engineered at appropriate length scales. Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Technology is about miniaturized mechanical and electro-mechanical sensors and devices that are made using Micro-fabrication techniques. Moreover, modern synthesis and characterization tools have enabled us to both probe and manipulate the arrangement of atoms in materials making. The curriculum aims to equip one with the fundamentals of understanding materials and their properties in order to embark on an exciting journey to engineer materials from millimeter to nanometer scales during the M. Tech. segment of the dual degree program.
