Welcome Message from the Head

We have embarked on this new journey at the end of 2020 after Board of Governors of IIT Kanpur approved the establishment of this Department. In the initial stages, the department will conduct graduate programme i.e. M.Tech., M.S. (R) and Ph.D. programmes for which admissions will be made one or twice a year with appropriate advertisement. Interested students should keep an eye on IITK website. We also welcome sponsored candidates from industries and research laboratories to carry out their postgraduate studies in our department and postdoctoral fellows through channels such as Institute post-doctoral fellowship or National postdoctoral fellowship or any other scheme.
