The School of Nano Science and Technology at National Institute of Technology Calicut offers higher degree programs at the Master’s and Doctoral levels, in various academic streams related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The school also houses sponsored research projects from various funding agencies. The faculty, students and research scholars are involved in dedicated learning and research to explore, understand and improve materials and processes from a fundamental perspective. They pursue academic research leading to the mission to introduce new functionalities into existing materials, and to tailor-make materials with exceptional qualities, which are the two major goals of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The varied interests of the school include study of nanoscale physical phenomena, experimental research in nanoscale flow and heat transfer, nanomaterials and composites, bio-nanotechnology and targeted drug delivery systems, optical measurements, combustion and nanoparticle fuel additives, synthesis of nanomaterials including carbon nanotubes, and discrete computational studies on nanoscale systems using molecular dynamics simulations. The school conducts a four-semester Master of Technology program in Nanotechnology. A Center for Characterization and Electron Microscopy also exists in the school.
