The field of materials science is one of the rapidly developing field. The Department of Materials Science at CUTN has evolved from the tradition of collaboration across disciplines by exploiting the latest breakthroughs in Chemistry, Physics, and Life Science as well as emerging techniques from Mechanical, Chemical, and Electrical Engineering to create better materials. Materials are crucial to the performance and reliability of virtually every technology. The central theme of materials science is that the process by which a material comes into being determines its structure, which in turn controls its properties and ultimately its functional performance. The teaching and research philosophy of the department is to impart the students with the understanding of the interplay between major aspects of materials science, namely, composition, structure, processing, characterization, and properties and equip them to develop innovative technologies based on sound fundamental principles. Our departmental vision is to foster the individual growth of our students so that they gain practical experience and knowledge in areas of materials theory, synthesis, and characterization and master experimental design and the interpretation and presentation of results. Interests within the Department span the entire materials cycle from mining and refining of raw materials, to production and utilization of finished materials, and finally to disposal and recycling. There are rich variety of problems of vital importance to the development of the science of metals, polymers, ceramics, glasses, electronic materials, biomedical materials, composites, and other materials awaiting solution. The Department has the computational and experimental resources available to attack these scientific and engineering problems successfully.

The faculty and students in our department seek to improve the performance of existing materials, synthesize new materials, and understand materials in all of their roles. The broad-based program encompasses a wide range of materials and enables students to understand the scientific principles governing the interrelation among processing, structure, properties, and materials performance. Students learn to integrate these principles in the systematic design of new materials from faculty members who are renowned for their pioneering work.Strong interdisciplinary research is at the core of the materials science department at Central University of Tamil Nadu. The research areas of interest are

Computational Materials Science

Biomaterials

Metals, Alloys and intermetallics

Materials for Green Energy Technologies

Ceramics and Polymers

Nanomaterials

Magnetic Materials

Structural Materials

Electronic & optoelectronic materials

Other areas of interests include materials synthesis, characterization, theory and modelling & thinfilm technologies.

M.Sc. Physics/Chemistry/Applied Physics/Applied Chemistry/Material Science/Nano Science/Nano Technology or B.E /B.Tech. (Except Computer Science/IT).

Syllabus An important feature of M.Sc and i.M.Sc programme offered by the department of chemistry is to provide students with an opportunity to carry out research projects on a wide range of contemporary topics.

This will provide an ideal environment for translating classroom learning into cutting-edge research applications. Successfully completion of the aforesaid programme will help the students to either embark on a career in chemistry or to pursue advanced degrees in chemistry and allied interdisciplinary areas.

The strong laboratory programme exposure to modern instrumentation and the research training will be of immense value to students to pursue a Ph.D. programme directly. The opportunity to engage in an intense one-semester research project in a creative and exciting environment will enable students to make intelligent career choices, specifically with regard to a research career.

The Materials Science master's programme is a competitive education program that specializes students in the area of new materials. The big leap of advances in modern technologies and products in recent decades relies to a large extent on the development of materials science and technology. The importance of advanced materials in today’s technology is best exemplified by the highly purified semiconductor crystals, which are the basis of the "electronic age".

Future implementations and applications of materials in electronics and photonics involve nano-scaled physics, molecular electronics and nonlinear optics etc. This M.Tech. programme has been proposed to offer students high-level interdisciplinary education and training in novel materials and its technological applications.

The M.Tech. (Materials Science) programme to be offered by CUTN is interdisciplinary in nature, with students joining from diverse backgrounds. The programme emphasizes the comprehension of scientific principles and the development of personal and professional skills in solving practical engineering problems. The studies begin with some mandatory courses on materials science and its technological applications, in order to provide students with a solid knowledge foundation for modern materials science and nanotechnology. The subjects of Material Science include metallic materials, engineering materials, ceramic materials, polymers & composites, magnetic & electronic materials and synthesis and characterization techniques.

The students are particularly encouraged to get a feel for the latest developments in engineering materials. Starting with the second year a large variety of elective courses are planned to offer in close connection to cutting-edge technologies in order to give students a broad perspective of today’s materials science and links to applications in semiconductor technology, functional materials, optoelectronics, bioengineering (biocompatibility), chemical and biosensors, energy storage and mechanical applications. Students will also be instructed through the in-depth project courses to develop abilities for creative thinking and problem-solving. At last students will complete a thesis project in the area of materials science and nanotechnology, either in a research group in-house or in industry.

Duration of Course: 2 years (4 semesters) Intake / Seats: 24 Seats.

This M.Tech programme provides students with knowledge and skills required for modern science and technology. Graduates will be prepared for careers within academia or industry in materials-related research and development.

The demand for talents in this field is large both in research institutes and industries. For example, wide-bandgap semiconductors, high-performance soft matters, advanced multifunctional materials as well as hybrid smart materials are of high interest in the industries in India and other countries.
