Information on the various properties of materials are the key to unlock and analyze their suitability for various futuristic applications. The course Physical and Electrochemical Characterizations in Chemical Engineering aims to address these aspects fundamentally and practically in the field of Chemical Engineering and allied disciplines. The study span during the course includes the fundamental principles of various instrumentation techniques, which include spectroscopy, surface and electrochemical characterizations, and mechanical stability. Upon successful completion of the course, students are expected to be conversant with various characterization techniques including characterization of bio/nanostructures and nano/bio/smart materials. They are expected to become competent in carrying out analysis on the structural, thermal, chemical and mechanical properties of materials.
PRE-REQUISITE : Elementary Chemistry
INDUSTRY SUPPORT : Most of the Industries does utilize these tools to characterize materials whether in Electronic, Chemical or Pharmaceuticals Industries for characterizing and confirming the final product to Specific Standards. Hence, the knowledge of these will be helpful for outgoing undergraduates and postgraduates for better employment opportunities.
INTENDED AUDIENCE : Undergraduates and Postgraduates from different disciplines related to Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Chemistry, and Physics
