The Department of Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering(MSME) was established in the year 2007 and is dedicated to the advancement of education and research in materials science and metallurgical engineering. It had initiated teaching programs at the bachelor's degree level and master's degree level in 2007 and 2012 respectively.
At present, the Department hasfacultystrength of 8 (2 permanent and 6 on contract). The department is in its initial growth stage and being supported by the eminent scientists for R&D works. The department is having a B.Tech programme on Materials Science & Metallurgical Engineering and one M.Tech Programme on Materials Science and Technology. The current intake capacity of the department for B.Tech programme is 63 and 18 for M.Tech programme. Presently about 9 researchstudentsare enrolled in Ph.D. and 33 students pursuing M.Tech degree. The research interestsof the Department encompass Advanced Materials including nano-materials, thin films, ceramics, polymers, Structure-property relationship in metallic and non-metallic materials and advanced composites, in addition to the core areas like Process Metallurgy, Extractive Metallurgy, Physical Metallurgy and Mechanical behaviour of materials. The Department has developed few state-of-art advanced materials characterization facilities to support industries.
