Particle science and technology education and research at IIT madras: A synergistic approach
Published in
2006
Abstract
Historically, the particulate research and education effort in the Particle Science & Polymers (PSP) Laboratory in the Department of Chemical Engineering at IIT Madras may be described as being focused on "Mechanical Operations", which encompasses traditional technologies such as size reduction and size classification, and addresses applications such as: biomass fuel preparation, material recycling from electronic scrap, fly-ash classification and computer simulation of size reduction and classification processes of industrial importance. More recently, nano-particle research has emerged as a critical research initiative of the Laboratory. The educational curriculum is now being modified to provide necessary expertise to student researchers working in this field. Fine-particulate research and education are being intertwined in such a way as to maximize benefit to academia and industry. Course delivery methods are also being upgraded in step with web-based learning and distance-learning scenarios.
