It is a combined course of Science and Engineering. With reference to Science, it deals with structure of materials, their macroscopic properties and features. To justify the Technological education, it includes manipulation of scientific properties of materials in a fruitful manner to enhance its industrial properties.
This field is continuously improving with the developments in the field of science like Nanotechnology.
For this, a post graduation degree in material science is the first choice. Candidates who have done their Bachelors and masters degree in science related field from a recognized college are eligible for this course.
A candidate who has done a four year engineering course in related stream is also can also apply for this course.
The admission procedure varies from one institute to another. It can as simple as submission of filled application form with application fee to the entrance test, then interview.
The duration for this course is 1 year that is equivalent to 2 semesters. Being a technical course, it is not available as distance learning course.
Further study options
Students after completion of this course, can go for M.Phil. or PhD, as these are research based courses, they will be having great career afterwards.
They can also have some short term courses related to any particular technical field like Aerospace technology, Industrial design, etc.
Course includes theoretical part as well as one practical part. Theoretical part includes study of Materials and their characterizations on different basis. They also learn about various instruments involved in this like Electronic Microscope, etc. Topics like Polymer Science, Soft Matter, Physical Metallurgy, Corrosion of Materials, etc are included to give all around knowledge.
The practical part includes a small project on selected topic from the field of Materialistic Science and Technology.
It is a combination of 2 top technical fields; hence candidate from this course have lots of job opportunities. Career oriented students from this field choose other related technical fields like aerospace, automotive, power generation and other industrial sectors. They can also join construction and transport field.
Main designations or roles they would have are project management and technical support manufacturing unit. They can also join sales and marketing team as they have strong foundation of products to convince the customers. Research and Development sectors hire these candidates every year for their projects.
