Courses

The School offers the following courses:

1. Two Year M. Tech in Materials Science and Technology

This course has been running since 1982 and over 100 students have passed out. All these students are gainfully employed in various R & D organizations, industries and academic institutions. The admission to this program is based on GATE score cum interview and is open to M.Sc. (Physics), M. Sc. (Chemistry) and B. Tech. students.

2. 5 Year Integrated Dual Degree M. Tech


The last few decades have witnessed a large scale technological applications of a plethora of novel and complex materials ranging from ceramics to polymers and their composites. Several of these materials possess functional and intelligent characteristics making them useful for designing smart devices and structures. The emergence of biomaterials, high temperature superconductors, carbon cluster compounds, and nanomaterials has further extended the horizons of the field of Materials Science and Technology. The subject areas of Materials Science and Technology has become truly interdisciplinary in nature. The more familiar an engineer or technologist is with the structure, properties and processing of these advanced materials, the more proficient and confident he/she would be in making a judicious selection of materials or even in designing a new material with desired characteristics for particular application. Keeping in view of the ever expanding requirement of the Materials Technology Industry and R & D organizations, a dual degree 5 year Programme, leading to B. Tech. and M. Tech. degrees at the end of the course has been launched at IT, BHU. The courses are so designed that the students develop a comprehensive understanding of the structure, properties, processing and applications of various advanced technology materials and at the same time also acquire specialized skills and understanding in the selected area of materials technology through the various electives. The dissertation work starting from the summer semester of the fourth year through the fifth year will provide the students to develop a flavour of research in frontier areas of advanced materials in a stimulating environment. This course has been initiated from the academic session 2005-06. The admission will be through Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) conducted by IITs.

3. Research Programme.

The school has strong Ph.D programme and the admission of this programme is through national level examination e.g. NET and GATE.
