Center FOR Nanomaterials & MEMS

About the Center

This centre focuses on research areas of Nano material synthesis, Thin film deposition and MEMS device solution.

Research in nano materials and MEMS has recently gained momentum with many academicians, researchers and industries taking active part in it. The Center has been carrying out collaborative work with all National MEMS Design Centers across the country with the help of Professors at CeNSE and ECE and Instrumentation Departments of IISc. The area is a multidisciplinary field; hence when students and faculty take active part in this research, they get a complete view of different facets of Science and Technology and their applications. This helps in building a connection between the institute and industry.


To become a Centre of excellence in frontier area of research and extend facilities and expertise to students and faculty of colleges in the region.


To develop a Centre of Excellence in the field of MEMS, smart materials, microbatteries and water purification by collaborating with advanced research institutes like IISc and IIT's and also by motivating students to undertake research as career.

The Centre for Nanomaterials and MEMS at NMIT, has been instituted to nurture the research abilities and innovative thinking capabilities among the students and faculty members of NMIT. The objective is to give knowledge and create awareness on the important facets of Nanomaterials and Technology, highlighting the current trends and future directions in multidisciplinary areas like Electronics, Energy, chemical, Civil, Mechanical, Space, Medicine, Health care etc.
