Welcome to the home page of Discipline of Metallurgy Engineering and Materials Science!
The discipline of MEMS was initially started as a Center for Materials Science Engineering comprising of faculty from Schools of basic sciences and engineering.
Upon its progress in short period of time, the center for MSE was made in to full fledged discipline of Metallurgy Engineering and Materials Science from 2016.
Materials continue to play a vital role in almost every technological advancement since the beginning of civilization. The emphasis of the discipline is to promote
multidisciplinary research to find amicable solutions for the real- world problems and work on the cutting-edge research problems that benefits society.
The key research focus of the discipline is to understand the processing, structure of several classes of materials and correlate them to the properties
and thus enhancing their performance.
The discipline has 15 core faculty members (including one Ramanujan fellow and DST Inspire fellow) and 18 associated faculty from the Schools of basic sciences and engineering
of the institute. The faculty members of the discipline work over wide research areas from conventional metallurgy to modern materials science.
The vision of the discipline is to train students who will be the future industry leaders as well as get global recognizition for its excellence in materials education and research.
