Academic Programs: The faculty members associated with the Center are pursuing the development of UG and PG programs in nano-technology. These involve developing inter-disciplinary UG/PG labs and courseware by 2012 and M.Tech., B.E., and Ph.D. programs by 2013. These programs will be initially administered within the ECE Department; eventually, a separate Nano-technology and Engineering Department will be carved out to administer them.
Training: The Center also develops and undertakes a) short-term training and certification programs for undergraduate science or engineering students and faculty, b) continuing education programs for science & engineering faculty and industry professionals, and c) topical workshops in the thematic areas of nano-technology.
Internships: Engineering students and industry personnel are offered summer internship opportunity to learn the operation of the Center of ART facility, get hands-on training in the various fabrication processes, undertake equipment maintenance, and contribute to the smooth functioning of the Center. This is also a path to contribute to the Center's R&D programs. Each internship carries a stipend and time-bound work assignments. Interested students should contact the Head of the Center.
Visiting Scholars: The Center hosts visiting scholars from collaborating organizations on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the area of research interest, a scholar may be awarded this privilege for three months to two years. Certain rules and guidelines apply. Interested scholars should contact the Head of the Center.
Workshops and Continuing Education (CE) Programs: Periodically, the Center hosts week–long workshops and continuing education programs for the S&E faculty and industry professionals. Participants live on campus for the duration and participate in the daily learning and laboratory activities. Topics pertain to the R&D themes of the Center: nano-electronics, nano-materials, or nano-medicine. Anyone interested in organizing a workshop or CE program should contact the Head of the Center.
Center of ART Visitor Tours: Visitors are welcome to our facility. Visitors in a hurry may take the short window tours to obtain an overview of the facility. In-depth tours with clean room gowning, entry into the clean rooms, and participation in lab demonstrations are offered to high school and PUC student groups. Each group is limited to 15 members. Since the Center of ART is an academic and research facility, all tour requests must be forwarded to Center's office so that they are scheduled without disturbing the ongoing activities. The entire facility is secured with biometric doors and no visitor can enter it without prior approval and arrangement.
