With the advent of the new-age technologies and related state of the art laboratories the department will be in a position to become a centre of excellence in Nanoscience & Technology. The centre would be equipped with all modern instruments of synthesis, characterization and simulation and will become a research platform for teachers, students, scientists across various disciplines of science and engineering. New generation Nanomaterials would be synthesized, characterized by physics and chemistry people; potentiality of device applications would be made by physics, chemistry, biology and electronics people and final device fabrication and utilization would be done by electronics and electrical engineers. The centre should be equipped with modern facilities like high performance cluster computing and enable researchers to penetrate crucial areas of drug delivery, nanomedicine, device design and many more. The centre will serve the society through the production of novel nanomaterials, indegeneous technologies and will produce human resource with a futuristic view.
Recent years have witnessed a surge of interest in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. This wing of technology covers design, synthesis, characterization, an simulation of materials at very low dimension. Nanomaterials finds remarkable applications in electronics, photonics, spintronics, engineering materials, advanced materials and coatings, devices, computer science, medicine, textiles, sports equipment, polymers, biology, agriculture, food science and so forth. In fact Nanotechnology is considered as the next generation of Industrial Revolution and without its development the future generation of industrial sector cannot sustain. The Institute cannot remain isolated from this highly promising field of science and technology where people of Physical Science, Chemical Science, Bioscience, Mathematical sciences and various Engineering branches can work together and develop this very prosperous field of science and technology to the next extent. Realizing these prospective areas of the emerging field, JIS College of Engineering initiated a 2 years M.Tech course in Nanoscience and technology after getting approval of AICTE and West Bengal University of Technology in 2012. The course was initiated as a joint initiative of the Department of Physics & Department of Chemistry. The rapid development and the possibility of commercialization of the Nano-based products in the Indian market warrants appropriate development of human resource in this field.
