On 5th February 2018, Department of Mechanical Engineering organised a seminar on “Advanced research in Materials Science”.Mechanical engineering is a very broad field of engineering that involves the application of physical principles for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.
The Board of Directors, Resource Person Dr. V.Sambath, Department of Materials and Metallurgy ,IIT – Madras were present on the dais.The gathering was welcomed by Student Bala Murugan of III Meachanical, Presidential address was given by respected Principal Dr.R.Rajesh, the chief was introduced by Dr.Indran, Head of Mechanical Engineering. The door of knowledge was opened by the Dr. V.Sambath.
The interdisciplinary field of materials science, also commonly known as materials science and engineering, involves the discovery and design of new materials, with an emphasis on solids. The intellectual origins of materials science stem from the Enlightenment, when researchers began to use analytical thinking from chemistry, physics, and engineering to understand ancient, phenomenological observations in metallurgy and mineralogy.
To discuss the advancements in the field of Materials Science, these seminars has taken the initiation to gather information through experts both from academic and industry. The Materials Science seminar serves as good platforms for the student’s community to meet experts with each other and to exchange thoughts. The Workshops and Symposiums started as an investigative meeting with an underlying mission to prepare students to differ controls with the aptitudes and capabilities required to diverse disciplines with the skills and competencies needed to face the challenges of a quick evolving world. Keeping pace with quickly developing thoughts and advances through quality session has been the fountainhead of the development of this seminar. The seminar focused on ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering, an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems, an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
The Mechanical Engineering seminar series provides an unparalleled opportunity to an individual to increase the depth of his scientific knowledge. The seminars are held every week, and also offer an ideal platform to initiate inter-disciplinary work cutting across boundaries The department maintains a very vibrant academic atmosphere through various academic initiatives. There is a regular stream of visitors to the department, both for long term and short term, resulting in collaborative research, interactions and seminars.
