This programme focuses on the technologies involved in the miniaturization of electronic and optical devices. The main emphasis is on current microtechnologies including the design and fabrication of microelectronic circuits, microsystems and optoelectronics. In addition to these topics, students can specialize in nanotechnology and nanosystem design or electronics production technology. The programme offers studies in basic materials and circuit theory, processing, functional devices and characterisation.
The CNST master/ research programme is a consolidation of advanced courses in physical sciences, life sciences, agriculture sciences, medicine sciences and engineering. The CNST course curriculum we now offer includes basic sciences, applied engineering and biotechnology. The CNST handles academic studies and applied research with a wide range of fields.
The programme at the Amity Institute of Nanotechnology comprises of conceptual knowledge of nanoscience and nanotechnology, including preparation of nanomaterials, their characterization and applications. Our eminent faculty takes care of teaching and training the students in the frontier areas of nanotechnology and they have drawn a noteworthy syllabus for the entire course.
The course is designed in such a way that students can explore in depth the application of nanotechnology to biomedical areas. The applications include new implant technologies, regenerative engineering, new nanomedicines to combat cancer and drug resistance, targeted medicines for treatment with reduced side effects, diagnostic technologies using nanomaterials etc.
The M Tech program leans strongly towards hands-on work and is not just a degree based on theory classes. Students are trained in the Center's nanotechnology labs and get an opportunity to participate in the Center's funded research projects grants. All M Tech students are expected to complete thesis work in nanosciences under guidance of the faculty. The program also offers clinical exposure in one of the many operation theatres of the hospital to help students develop an understanding of the medical applications of nanotechnology. In short, this is a pioneering program that aims to develop an all-round scientist and technologist with interdisciplinary specialization in three areas - nanotechnology, biotechnology and medical sciences.
The purpose of this program is to examine ethical challenges posed by emerging technologies, including nanotechnology, neurotechnology, biotechnology, robotics and advanced information and communication technology.
The P.S.M. in nanoscience is a cohesive program of interdisciplinary courses that provide the knowledge base required for research and innovation in nanoscience. The program incorporates courses in physics, chemistry and biochemistry, materials science and electrical engineering.
