  • Dual Degree (IDD)
    The last few decades have witnessed a large scale technological applications of a plethora of novel and complex materials ranging from ceramics to polymers and their composites. Show(+) Several of these materials possess functional and intelligent characteristics making them useful for designing smart devices and structures. The emergence of biomaterials, high temperature superconductors, carbon cluster compounds, and nanomaterials has further extended the horizons of the field of Materials Science and Technology. The subject areas of Materials Science and Technology has become truly interdisciplinary in nature. The more familiar an engineer or technologist is with the structure, properties and processing of these advanced materials, the more proficient and confident he/she would be in making a judicious selection of materials or even in designing a new material with desired characteristics for particular application. Keeping in view of the ever expanding requirement of the Materials Technology Industry and R & D organizations, a dual degree 5 year Programme, leading to B. Tech. and M. Tech. degrees at the end of the course has been launched at IT, BHU.
    The courses are so designed that the students develop a comprehensive understanding of the structure, properties, processing and applications of various advanced technology materials and at the same time also acquire specialized skills and understanding in the selected area of materials technology through the various electives. The dissertation work starting from the summer semester of the fourth year through the fifth year will provide the students to develop a flavour of research in frontier areas of advanced materials in a stimulating environment. This course has been initiated from the academic session 2005-06. The admission will be through Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) conducted by IITs. Hide(-)
  • M. Tech
    This course has been running since 1982 and over 100 students have passed out. All these students are gainfully employed in various R & D organizations, industries and academic institutions. Show(+) The admission to this program is based on GATE score cum interview and is open to M.Sc. (Physics), M.Sc. (Chemistry) and B.Tech. students. Hide(-)
  • Ph.D.
    Ph.D. degree in various specialization of School. The school has strong Ph.D. programme and the admission of this Show(+) programme is through national level examination e.g. NET and GATE. Hide(-)

Historical Background

School offers a two year M.Tech. degree programme with an annual intake of 16 students and has produced over 130 M.Techs. so far. These students are generally employed in premier R & D organizations, industry and teaching institutions. From the session 2005-06, the school has initiated a new 5 year Dual degree M.Tech. Programme. School runs a very successful Ph.D. degree programme also. Nearly twenty five Ph.D candidates have completed work under the supervision of the faculty members of the School Show(+)

The School receives the usual Plan Grant from UGC and has got some funds under its establishment grant. In addition, the faculty members of the School have generated more than Rs 8.5 crores through sponsored projects funded by agencies like DST, DBT, MHRD, DRDO, AICTE and IUC- DAEF. Recently, DST has sanctioned Rs. 2.7 crore under its ‘Funds for Infrastructural Support in Engineering and Technology (FIST) programme-II’. The School is supported through SAP-DRS Programme from UGC for coming years.   BUILDING AND LABORATORIES School has got a modest building of about 8,800 sq. ft. floor area and several laboratories equipped with modern and sophisticated equipments for materials preparation, characterization and phase transformation studies.
