Materials Engineering, being one of the most important branches of engineering brings various disciplines of engineering and science closer in fulfilling present day technological requirements. In view of the ever increasing demand for highly qualified manpower in Materials Engineering, the Bahauddin Zakariya University has established

Institute of Advanced Materials to offer quality education and training in this vital area of Engineering.

The institute has been established in a purpose built civil structure which houses lecture rooms, a modern library facility having access to various institutes and research organizations through internet facility. The hallmark of the institute is its laboratories which distinguish it from other institutes. The laboratories have been equipped with most modern and state of the art training and research equipment such as Scanning Electron Microscope, X-ray diffractometer, Thermal analyzer, furnaces for various purposes, and various instruments for testing of engineering materials along with facilities for determining physical and electrical properties of materials. The Labs have been established to prepare its graduates to provide services in sectors such as aerospace, metals and alloys, electrical and electronics, engineering ceramics and industries of strategic importance.

The Institute started its activities by offering 4-year degree program leading to B.Sc. Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. The revised curriculum of this program is so designed as to educate its graduates with various theoretical concepts in Materials Engineering and Technology, along with scientific principles governing designing, processing and applications of materials with a view to meet the needs of student-employer constituencies. The Institute places high degree of emphasis on practical training in relation to theoretical concepts and scientific principles, which is demonstrated by its wellequipped laboratories. The students would find the labs extremely useful in carrying out their research projects, as a part of degree program. Now the Institute has also started M.Sc. in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering.
