Department of Materials Science & Engineering

Materials Science & Engineering is a broad, versatile and ever evolving discipline. It deals with the structures, properties and applications of materials namely metals/alloys, ceramics/glasses, polymers/elastomers and composites. They are studied in terms of their structural, mechanical and functional properties and applications.  As the need for smaller and lighter materials grows, the desire for new materials, their design, fabrication and characterization becomes imperative.

Institute of Space Technology offers Indigenous MS Program in Materials Science & Engineering with areas of specialization in metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, aerospace materials and nano-engineering. The program aims to provide specialized training in modern materials science and engineering concepts to graduates. It would enable students to attain a deep understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of materials engineering. The students will be pleasantly surprised to discover that the program is attractive because of its rapidly expanding importance in both academic and industrial sectors.


The mission of the MS Program at the Institute of Space Technology is to provide an opportunity for higher education and research in the area of Materials Science & Engineering. This will enable the students to gain in-depth knowledge, training, and skills in the subject area necessary for their career goals. The students will be awarded a Masters (MS) degree upon successful completion of the course.
