Nano Education at Indian Institutes of Technology: A Status Report
Abstract:Indian Institutes of Technology are the premier institutes in India for the promotion of education and research in all disciplines of science and engineering. Five of these Institutes at Delhi, Kanpur, Bombay (at Mumbai), Kharagpur, and Madras (at Chennai) are the original institutes established in the 1950s. Two more institutes at Guwahati and Roorkee later joined this family of institutes, which are popularly called IITs. All the IITs have undergraduate programs of Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.), postgraduate programs of Master of Technology (M.Tech.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), and doctoral programs (Ph.D.) in all the disciplines of science and engineering. Every year, about 4000 undergraduate, and 8000 postgraduate and doctoral students are admitted to these institutes. Admission to undergraduate, Master, and doctoral programs at these institutes is based on national level entrance examinations. Due to the large number of high-quality science and engineering students, the status of nanotechnology curriculum at these institutes is a good indicator of nano-education in India.
