Enhancing Transformation

Starting from the development of a new extension building to setting up of new research lab, procuring new instruments and equipment, Ceramic department is in full swing for transforming its infrastructure. Throughout the sultry summers, the department has been moving along the fast lane towards development and striving towards creating a perfect ambience for better teaching and research programmes. Here’s a brief insight:


 New Equipment and Infrastructure:

Product development laboratory has been redesigned and fabrication equipment like hydraulic presses have been added. Two new equipment – freeze dry and high intensity mill are soon to be installed for a future project. Electrical fittings are currently being installed and after the completion of the work academic lecture and faculty chambers are to be shifted to the new building. New laboratories will be introduced for fruitful research to flourish.

Recent Developments:

Two new faculty members have recently joined the department- Prof. Partha Saha, aPost-doctoral research associate at University of Pittsburg and Prof. Arindam Pauol, a research scientist at Crompton Greaves.Prof. Shantanu Kumar Behera was invited to speak at 6th Indo-German Frontiers of Engineering Symposium 2014, which was co-organized by the Indian Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. 

The activity brings together outstanding, early-career German and Indian engineers and natural scientists from industry, universities, and other research institutions to introduce their areas of engineering research and technical work, thereby facilitating an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge and methodology that could eventually lead to the development of cooperative networks of young scientists from both countries. His work on “Ceramics for Energy” was represented by an Indian delegate.


Team MM wishes the department all the success in their future endeavours.
