About the centre:
The centre engages in the design, fabrication and experimental evaluation of polymer matrix composite materials developed by reinforcing agricultural waste/by-products suitable for automobile, aerospace, marine and structural applications.
The centre houses a state-of-the-art fabricating & testing facility. Research is focused on the development of new eco-friendly composite materials by using variety of natural fibres derived from plant origin such as areca, sisal, banana, jute, pineapple etc.

The lab aims at fabrication of Nano-structured Multilayer Alloy coatings using electrodeposition method by modulating current pulse. This new class of materials with alternating layers of different metal composition, having a thickness of few nanometers with ultrafine microstructure is of interest because of their fundamental and technological importance.
Electrochemical water splitting into Hydrogen/ Oxygen evolution reaction in acidic or alkaline solution, using an effective electro catalyst plays a growing role in the fabrication of alternative energy devices. In this context, the designing and development of various earth-abundant transition metals along with nano particles as highly efficient electro catalysts will benefit the technology through clean and sustainable energy system.
