Workshop on Recent Trends in Surface Engineering

Surfaces and their coatings play an important role in proper functioning of materials and give rise to properties like corrosion and wear protection, hydrophobicity, catalysis, high temperature oxidation resistance, self-cleaning surfaces, radar cross section (RCS) reduction, etc. The workshop covers wide range of advanced surface and coating processes and characterization techniques utilized in automotive, aerospace, energy, electronics, biomedical, textile, petroleum, petrochemical and other applications.

About the speakers:
  • Dr. Tahir Khan received his PhD (1992) and Sc.D (2013) from the University of Cambridge and has been working in Higher Education since 1995.
