Instructor bio

Prof. Jayanta Das

IIT Kharagpur
Dr. Jayanta Das is working as a faculty member since 2010 at IIT Kharagpur. His research activities have mainly encompassed the areas of alloy design, processing of bulk metallic glasses and their composites by rapid solidification and mechanical alloying, high entropy alloys and synthesis of bulk nanostructured alloys by cryo-rolling, their characterization, structure-property correlations, micromechanics of deformation of these advanced metastable alloys. Dr. Das has to his credit more than 120 research publications in peer-reviewed journals of international repute, which were cited more than 4000 times and has contributed 3 book chapters. He was the recipient of DAAD Fellowship in 2002, and Marie Curie Fellowship in 2004. He has been awarded Institute Silver Medal and Greaves Foseco Cash Prize of IIT Kharagpur in 2003, Young Scientist Award of German Society of Materials Research in 2006, Deutsche Bank Junior Award in 2009 (IFW Dresden, Germany), and IEI Young Engineers Award of Institution of Engineers India in 2012.

Course certificate

The course is free to enroll and learn from. But if you want a certificate, you have to register and write the proctored exam conducted by us in person at any of the designated exam centres.
The exam is optional for a fee of Rs 1000/- (Rupees one thousand only).
Date and Time of Exams: 29 October 2022 Morning session 9am to 12 noon; Afternoon Session 2pm to 5pm.
Registration url: Announcements will be made when the registration form is open for registrations.
The online registration form has to be filled and the certification exam fee needs to be paid. More details will be made available when the exam registration form is published. If there are any changes, it will be mentioned then.
Please check the form for more details on the cities where the exams will be held, the conditions you agree to when you fill the form etc.


Average assignment score = 25% of average of best 8 assignments out of the total 12 assignments given in the course.
Exam score = 75% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100

Final score = Average assignment score + Exam score

YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CERTIFICATE ONLY IF AVERAGE ASSIGNMENT SCORE >=10/25 AND EXAM SCORE >= 30/75. If one of the 2 criteria is not met, you will not get the certificate even if the Final score >= 40/100.

Certificate will have your name, photograph and the score in the final exam with the breakup.It will have the logos of NPTEL and IIT Kharagpur. It will be e-verifiable at nptel.ac.in/noc.

Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.

Once again, thanks for your interest in our online courses and certification. Happy learning.
