Future plans of the centre

Strengthen the nanotechnology infrastructure and research activities at GITAM with state-of-the-art facilities for nanotechnology research.

Facilitate construction of a 10,000 sq.ft nanotechnology building with all the required amenities to house the nanotechnology centre facilities.

Create technically sophisticated manpower for nanotechnology research, engineering and manufacturing.

Enabling a large number of doctoral students to conduct their research work in the nanotechnology centre.

Creating a suite of courses for graduate level teaching of nanotechnology, and admitting masters and doctoral students to this programme which would have a strong experimental research component.

Setting up an inter-university co-operative programme in which graduate students and leading researchers from other universities can come and take courses and do their research projects in the facility created.

Running summer course in nanotechnology for other university teachers and industry professionals.

Network with other agencies, institutions, national labs and industry working in the area of nanotechnology.
