Course on Advanced Material Technology

About Course

This is an advanced course to understand the potentialities of various advanced materials available and material selection procedures and manufacturing processes for a given industrial application.


Advanced Materials Technology is the new technology related to materials applications research, with focus on advanced device design, fabrication and integration, as well as new technologies based on novel materials.Future novel materials are unlikely to have high intrinsic value and that instead it is the way that new materials will be integrated into components and systems to enable new designs and deliver improved performance that will provide value. It has been difficult to disentangle materials developments from manufacturing innovations, as each drives the other in a virtuous spiral of improvement towards optimum performance. Most important future materials developments will involve integration of new and old materials with increasing precision and sophistication, even at the nanoscale thus future materials will lie in the ability to operate competitively at the intersection of design, materials science and manufacture.Thus, the main aim of the course is to prepare the participants to gain knowledge in the advanced materials and  latest manufacturing process to recommend the feasibility,utilization of the materials that can be adopted in industries.
