Mission: To facilitate advanced research in various fields of Science & Technology at Nanoscale leading to the development of innovative products for societal benefits.

Vision: To establish the Centre of Excellence in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for developing technologies through Research, Awareness and Consultancy

About Centre

The Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology was established in January 2006 at the University campus to accomplish the goal of enhancing advanced research in the areas of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The centre is a joint initiative of Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Govt. of India and Sathyabama University. The leading area of research includes nanomaterials, nanotechnology, nanocomposites, nanoelectronics, nanofabrication. In addition to research, the centre also conducts training and awareness programmes, workshops national and international conferences on recent trends and developments of Nanoscience on various themes of national interests. The centre is undertaking research and development projects from various agencies and is offering consultancy services to in industries and research organizations in India and abroad.
