Welcome Message

Welcome to the website of the Interdisciplinary Programme on Materials Science at IIT Kanpur. This interdisciplinary initiative was started more than 50 years back to encourage people from varied backgrounds to collaborate and come up with an academic programme to train manpower for harnessing the potential of materials to power our technological growth. The technologies of today use a large variety of materials with tailor-made properties, and stringent demands on performance much beyond that can be obtained from naturally occurring materials.
