Material Science aims the development of new materials and the improvement of existing materials for applications to meet the requirement of leading edge of technology. In broad sense, subject scope of ‘Material Science’ covers entire materials’ cycle i.e. from mining and refining of natural raw materials and synthesis/processing of artificial materials to the level of utilization of finished materials. It also includes proper disposal and recycling. There is a rich variety of relatively new materials of vital importance to the development of the Science and Technology in new era. It includes metals, polymers, ceramics, glasses, electronic materials, bio-medical materials, composites, nano-materials and other soft materials useful for present day’s high tech gadgets and even for the living organisms. Although interdisciplinary in primary nature because of the involvement of Chemistry (for the synthesis and processing), Physics (for characterization) and Engineering (for device fabrication), Material Science has now grown as a well established independent subject. Several academic courses useful for the society are being run by the Universities and various Research Centres in India as well as abroad....
