MTech in Material Science and Technology is a challenging inter disciplinary program offering considerable variety and career opportunities across a wide range of industry sectors. The course has been designed to meet the requirements of industry and allow progression towards professional chartered status.
Through a judicious combination of lectures, labs and case studies, students develop a thorough understanding of the properties and capabilities of metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, which can then be applied to a wide range of industrial contexts including iron and steel making, automotive, power generation and distribution,aerospace, IT and manufacturing amongst many others.
The OP Jindal University is surrounded by many industries of sponge iron, steel, power, cement, structural steel and ceramic including its sister concern JSPL, JPL, NSPL and SSD in which students can pursue their important rudiments of academic like industrial visit, case study and problem solving, research series seminar and project work.
The main aim of the program is to prepare and make ready our M.Tech. students for careers in research, academic and industry.
OPJU M Teach program will be different from others through the following constructs:
- Research Emphasis with practical applications
- Teaching exposure to prepare for a teaching career
- On the Job work experience with experience certificate.
This Material Science and Technology course is designed to give the learner a wide overview of materials and processes used to transform them.
With a view towards developing both science and engineering skills, the program curriculum has been framed so as to incorporate and deliver on experimental, analytical, statistical, and computational tools & educational components of globally accepted standards in the materials discipline. The core courses include: Materials Science, Metallurgy, Materials Thermodynamics, Materials Characterization Techniques, Nanotechnology, and Polymer & Ceramic Materials. While the labs cover important aspects of synthesis, testing, and characterization. The electives are structured in such a way as to offer opportunities for acquisition of specialized and advanced knowledge in sub-disciplines. Students have the opportunity to pursue their projects either in-house or outside in reputed industrial or R&D institutions.
With a strong focus on developing research skills among the students in frontier areas, the program includes educational components that would make the graduates suited to, and employable in, industry, government R&D, and academic settings, spanning diverse areas such as metallurgy, ceramics engineering, polymer engineering, composites, Alloy design and Nanotechnology.
