Objective of the Course

Carbon nanomaterials, with their unique structure and electronic configuration, offer exciting properties, making them suitable for applications in electronics, energy generation and storage, optical devices, sensors, healthcare and structural components. This has driven enormous research effort in last two decades in exploring their potential, resulting in many commercially available products as well. Thus, it is the high time to conduct this QIP course to appraise the Indian research community with the uniqueness of the carbon-based nanomaterials in different applications. The main objective of this course is not only to enrich the participants’ knowledge base on this advanced field of research, but is also to attract them to pursue research in this field, hopefully leading to inventions and interesting products. Practical exposures will impart hands-on experience to make the objectives more fruitful. Finally, and most importantly, presentation and interaction with a successful start-up company (Log9 Materials) will boost confidence in participants about actual marketable products using carbon nanostructures

General Information

The Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee is organizing a course on “Carbon Nanomaterials – Recent Advances and Functional Applications” from 20.05.2019 to 24.05.2019. The course is open to teachers from AICTE-recognized engineering colleges. Limited seats are available in this course. Merit will be taken into consideration while selecting candidates. The candidates, after filling the online application form take a final print out of the form. The duly forwarded form by the sponsoring authority of the the concern institute should be submitted to the office of QIP Coordinator latest by 29.04.2019. Candidates admitted will be provided free hospitality. The boarding and lodging arrangements for all the participants will be made in the Institute Guest House on twin sharing basis. Participants who are not availing this facility will not be entitled to any rebate. Family accommodation is not available on campus. However, personal arrangements in city hotels can be made at own expense.

Although, the course is for faculty members from AICTE approved engineering colleges, (Without Registration Fee), few seats are available for sponsored candidates from industries. The registration fee is ` 10,000/- which includes boarding, course material and other local hospitalities. The DD should be drawn in favour of "Prof. & Head, Continuing Education Centre, IIT Roorkee". This does not include accommodation which can be booked separately on request.
