Industrial visit to IISc – Bengaluru: Dept of Science: Feb 29, 2020

As a part of Academic curricular activities and Enhancing Practical Knowledge of Students, the Department of Science organized an industrial visit for II B. Sc (MEC and PCM) students to the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) on 29th February 2020. In all, 50 students and 3 faculty members took part in the visit. The visit was very helpful to the students to learn about the practical knowledge on principle, working and operation of instrumentations.

Student got the exposure on Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Electrical, Electronic and Computer Sciences, Mechanical Sciences and Library.

During the visit, students interacted with the Research scholars very effectively. Particularly about the working principle of the instrumentation and analysis. All Research scholars and explained very well about the instrumentation and the research carried out in the institution. The students expressed their thanks to the officials for the opportunity given. This Industrial Visit was highly useful for the students in terms of practical knowledge about the principle, working and operation.

The Chemical science department hosts some of the finest research instruments for carrying out work in advanced competitive areas of chemistry like FT microwave spectrometer, surface-enhanced laser Raman spectrometer, Raman microscope, femtosecond pump-probe experimental set-ups, are home-built, whereas the high resolution TEM, the AFM, single crystal and powder X-ray and NMR spectrometers. The Department has advanced frontiers of the following major research areas: chemical biology, physical organic chemistry, asymmetric synthesis; carbohydrate chemistry, macromolecular chemistry, chemistry of bile acids, organic-inorganic hybrid materials; organic synthesis; natural products; structural and functional mimics of proteins.

The Department of Instrumentation and Applied Physics falls under the Division of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and the Faculty of Engineering. he core research areas pursued in the department encompass amorphous semiconductors, phase change memories, fibre optic sensors, nanometrology and precision motion control, nanoscience, super resolution microscopy, nanolithography, biophysics, cell biology, imaging cytometry, optical traps, sensors, nanostructured materials, vacuum and thin-film technology, plasma science and technology, semiconductor devices and integrated circuits, flexible electronic systems, optofluidics, biomedical instrumentation.

The theory group works on the mathematical foundations of computing. Current research areas include algorithmic algebra, approximation algorithms, coding theory, combinatorial geometry, computational geometry, computational topology, cryptography, formal verification, graph theory, logic, and randomized algorithms.

The department of Biological Sciences works in frontier areas such as Biochemistry, about the infectious disease research, about the neuroscience, protein chemistry and structure based drug design, structural biology of immune receptors and other molecules of medicinal and biological importance
