Research Activities

Apart from teaching UG/PG students at Saharanpur Campus of IIT Roorkee, the faculty members are involved in doctoral research program having more than thirty five Ph.D. students. Additionally, the faculty also participates as resource person in Short Term Courses and Quality Improvement Program (QIP) related to Basic/ Applied Science and Industry oriented topics. The faculty members, Post- Doctoral and Doctoral Research Scholars are carrying out Fundamental, Applied and Experimental cutting edge research in the following frontal areas:

  1. Energy and Environments: Energy Storage (Li-ion batteries, Supercapacitor, Fuel cell), CO2 Capture
  2. Corrosion and Wear Engineering ( Microbial Corrosion, Nano -composite Coating)
  3. Theoretical Modeling of Electronic Properties of Nanostructures (multilayer-Graphene & Nanoscopic Junctions)
  4. Theoretical aspects of Iron and Copper based High Tc Superconducting Materials
  5. Synthesis and Characterization of Nano-structured Materials & Nano-Chemistry
  6. Boundary Value Problem
  7. Differential Equation (Hyperbolic System of first order equations)
  8. Numerical Methods (Numerical Optimization & Similarity techniques))
  9. Management(Finance)
  10. English (Literature& Communication)
