School of Engineering Sciences and Technology (SEST)
About the School
The School of Engineering Sciences and Technology (SEST) was established in the academic year 2008-09 with an objective to impart research-oriented education and pursue high quality research in emerging multi-disciplinary areas encompassing science, engineering and technology. At present, SEST offers M.Tech. programmes in Materials Engineering, Nanoscience and Technology and Manufacturing Science and Engineering and Ph.D. programmes in Materials Engineering and Nanoscience and Technology and intends to offer Ph.D. programme in Manufacturing Science and Engineering soon. In near future, SEST intends to offer programmes in other frontier engineering disciplines.
SEST provides an ideal environment to pursue cross-disciplinary research in engineering sciences and technology by taking advantage of the well-established facilities and expertise available within the School and in the University campus.
SEST also collaborates with premier research institutions located in and around Hyderabad (namely DMRL, IICT, ARCI, NFC, NFTDC and RCI), most of which are also formally recognized as school’s external research centers.
The school has already been recognized for its excellence by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India, with funding to the tune of Rs. 240 Lakhs under its FIST programme. The school, since its inception, has been able to attract research grants of more than Rs. 1000 Lakhs from various external funding agencies.
