Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is an emerging and transformative discipline with huge potential to accelerate materials
discovery, product design and process optimization. The focus of ICME is on INTEGRATION:integration of models of various processes, integration of models across multiple length scales, integration of design and manufacturing, integration of models with experiments, integration of software tools addressing multi-physics problems, and so on with the end objective of accelerating the design and industrial deployment of new materials in critical sectors.
Keeping this in view, IIT Kanpur and Tata Consultancy Services agreed to establish a National Hub on ICME at IIT Kanpur. The National Hub will act as a nodal point for national academia/laboratories and will collaborate with national/international academic institutions and will establish active collaboration with key industries (steel, aluminum, automotive, aerospace, glass, etc.) and government sectors (Defense, Space, Atomic Energy, Railways, etc.).
