The Department of Materials Engineering, which started in 1985 under the name of ‘Faculty of Metallurgy’, was recently rechristened to its present name in 2010. The Department is striving to create a vibrant atmosphere for education and research in all the areas of materials science and engineering. Towards achieving this, the Department is imparting education and training to DRDO Scientists, Service officers and scholarship students through its various academic programs, viz., M. Tech, MS and PhD and by participating extensively in R&D activities for various DRDO labs, like, ASL, DMRL, NMRL, DMSRDE, ADE, DEBEL and NPOL, and Industries. Currently, the Department is endowed with highly competent faculties who have come from various world class industries and academic institutes with wide research and development experiences. Presently the department is aiming to contribute significantly in the research output in terms of scientific papers and technology developments in the areas of many strategic and advanced materials like intelligent textiles, biosensors, electrospinning technique, magnetic materials, engineering adhesives, structural composites, nanocomposites, hybrid supercapacitors, functional materials, multilayer thin films, biomaterials for prosthetics, tissue engineering, plastics processing, piezoelectric materials, super critical foaming technology and rapid prototyping for Defence, Aerospace and other engineering applications. The Department has been sanctioned several projects funded by Ministry of Defence and Department of Science and Technology (DST). At present several students pursuing their PhD in the proposed research projects. The faculties also extensively collaborate with the Universities and various Organizations in the UK, USA, Taiwan, Singapore and Israel. During the next five years the Department is envisioning to create a Center of Excellence in Materials Research. Mission: “To provide unique, customized material solutions to Defence sector”. The Vision: “To be a world class Center for Materials Research".
