The M.Tech. Materials Science and Engineering program is offered at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham by the Center of Excellence in Advanced Materials and Green Technologies established in May 2013, based on a grant awarded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The center has numerous ongoing research projects covering materials for fuels/energy, electricity, construction, and water. 

The program is designed to produce graduates that can apply fundamental knowledge of mathematics, physics & chemistry of materials, and statistics, to model and solve problems related to design, synthesis, performance enhancement, and optimization of materials. Recognizing the multidisciplinary nature of the field, the teaching and project guidance will be accordingly delivered by highly qualified, world-class faculty from various departments including, chemical engineering, chemistry, physics, & aerospace engineering. 

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 I & II, Materials Thermodynamics, Statistical Design of Experiments, Materials Characterization Techniques, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Materials Design, and Polymer 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 such as electronic materials, biomaterials, and materials for energy systems. Students have the opportunity to pursue their projectseither in-house (research in the departments of chemical engineering, chemistry, physics, aerospace engineering, and the center for excellence in advanced materials & green technologies), 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, industrial, government R&D, and academic settings, spanning diverse areas such as electronics & communications, energy, chemicals, medicine, and transportation.


To produce graduates equipped with skills to perform well in their professional careers, in any component of life cycle of materials: Design & Development, Synthesis, Processing, Manufacturing, Process Optimization, Property Enhancement, Recycling


Industry, Academia, Government R & D - Diverse Areas such as Materials, Energy, Fuel, Electricity, Chemicals, Water, Healthcare, Construction, Transportation, Fabrication, Defense
