Welcome to Materials Engineering @ IISc!
Welcome to the Department of Materials Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science. While you could take a virtual tour by browsing through the links, we have put together a few pages that might be of special interest to prospective students (Undergraduate Program, ME Program, MSc(Engg) Program, and Doctoral Program), faculty candidates, potential employers, alumni, and visitors.
Here are a few highlights for the year 2014:
The Department has over 100 doctoral scholars, and about 30 masters students (ME Class of 2014, ME Class of 2015). It also runs, together with the Materials Research Program, the Materials Stream in the Institute's undergraduate program; two batches (Class of 2015 and Class of 2016) have joined the Materials community so far.
The Department has launched the K.P. Abraham Memorial Fund with a goal of raising Rs. 2 crores which will serve the twin objectives of partially equipping laboratories in our new building and of endowing a visiting faculty chair.
The Department has a new building coming up with 4 floors and about 25,000 square feet of space for laboratories, offices and a 100-seat seminar hall.
