and Electives (15 credits, of which 9 credits must be from Materials courses). The courses in the August-2014 semester are broken up into these categories as follows:

Core
  1. MT 202 (3:0)Thermodynamics and Kinetics
  2. MT 241 (3:0) Structure and Characterization of Materials

Note: For students without a background in materials engineering and allied fields. MT 250 (3:0) is an additional (hard) core course.

PhD and MSc(Engg) students:

  1. You choose your courses after consulting your thesis adviser.

  2. In addition, if you do not have a BE or BTech degree in metallurgy, you must register for MT 250 (3:0) – Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering. However, it will not count towards your RTP, the Research Training Programme.

Courses

The Department offers courses in the areas of thermodynamics and kinetics, structure and characterization, phase transformations, transport phenomena, mechanical behavior, materials processing, light metals, grain boundary engineering, high temperature deformation, interfacial phenomena, water treatment, polymer science, crystal defects, thin films, solidification processing, interdiffusion, etc.
The Department currently offers three degree programs. The Ph.D and M.Sc. (Engg) programs have a focus on research and accept candidates with a B.E./B.Tech/M.E./M.Tech. or equivalent degree in Materials Science/Engineering, Metallurgical, Mineral, Chemical, Ceramics or Mechanical Engineering, and candidates with a Master’s degree in Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mineral Processing, Materials Science or Applied Science. Short-listed candidates are admitted on the basis of an interview. The two year M.E. program accepts candidates with a B.E./B.Tech. or equivalent degree in Materials Engineering and allied areas including Metallurgy, Mechanical, Chemical and Ceramic Engineering. Selection for the M.E. program is based on the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE). This program places a greater emphasis on coursework. Additionally, the department offers research programs for teachers from engineering institutions and external sponsored candidates from R&D labs and the industry.

Information regarding credit requirement for various progrmmes are given below:

ME programme:

Total number of credits to be taken: 32; Hard core: 8 credits; Soft core: 9 credits; Electives: 15 credits (9 credits must be from the Department)

At least three courses should be chosen amongst the soft core courses — two in the August semester, and one in January semester.
You can take more of these courses as electives.

Ph.D. students:

  • You will have to credit MT: 250, if you do not have a background in Materials.If you have ME/M.Tech./M.Sc. (Engg) degree, you will have to take 6 credits of course.If you have BE/B.Tech./M.Sc. degree, you will have to take 18 credits of course.
