Nanotechnology

Programme Overview
Periyar Maniammai Institute of Science & Technology started the Nanotechnology division in the year 2008 under the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering with the support and financial grant of one crore rupees from Nano mission, DST, Govt. of India. Currently the division is offering M.Tech. Nanotechnology (Full Time and Part Time). The division not only offers programmes but actively involves in true interdisciplinary research. Projects worth millions in Indian Rupee is undertaken and funded by agencies such as Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, New Delhi, etc. in the field of Nano science. The graduates can become scientists, engineers and technicians who will be working with high end equipment.
