M.Tech. Program in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering


Materials Engineering provides understanding of material behavior at various length scales (from atomic to component level). It is an interdisciplinary branch that covers design, production, and characterization of materials for energy, electronics, aerospace, automotive, and healthcare industries.

Our M.Tech. program offers four compulsory courses along with a vast number of elective courses. While the compulsory courses equip the students with fundamental understanding of core concepts, the elective courses provide in-depth understanding in specific subject areas.
