Anna University

Department of Applied Science and Technology


The department of Applied Science and Technology (AS&T) was started in October 2011. The objective of the department is to carry out research by the fusion of Science and Technology. Our department started an undergraduate programme Petroleum Engineering and Technology and a post graduate programme in Industrial Safety and Hazardous Management in the academic year 2013-2014.

Petroleum Engineering and Technology programme focuses on the production, drilling, reservoir, petroleum chemistry, technical communications, petroleum engineering science ,petroleum safety fundamentals and geology. Petroleum engineering and Technology programme trains engineering technologists in all areas of the petroleum industry and helps them meet the demand for highly skilled people in the field and office positions.

In the past few decades, rate of industrialization in the country has gathered momentum. Apart from new investments for putting up factories ,modernization and renovation of existing manufacturing facilities has also taken place to improve quality and productivity. Industrial safety and Hazards Management programme deals with the study of managing hazardous chemicals and their handling and salient features of industrial safety measures.

The curricula and syllabi for the undergraduate and postgraduate courses have been periodically updated in line with modern day developments taking into account the demands of industry and R&D institutions.

AS&T offers students the option of crossing disciplinary lines in developing knowledge in varied fields of study. Major fields of emphasis include applied physics, engineering sciences, and industrial science and applications. The Graduate Program in Applied Science and Technology (AS&T) features the application of physical and mathematical techniques to fundamental investigations of emerging areas within the physical and life sciences. Emphasis is given to students to carry out active and rich research with research publications in well known journals in major and allied engineering and science.

The department has fully equipped laboratories in the core areas of the programme to impart practical knowledge to the students. Industrial collaborations for ensuring the placement of the students in established process and product industries through campus and off-campus recruitments is given a top priority. Active interaction with the industry has been maintained and the department has been collaborating with several industries through several consultancy services towards technology development activities using the sophisticated testing facilities available in the department.

Mission : Knowledge and prosperity through high quality Education, Student Progress and success, transformative science and technology solutions with Research Excellence for a better society.

Vision To render the highest quality of education through teaching and research excellence, with the state-of-the-art educational facilities and innovative programs, to provide our students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed and become leaders of tomorrow.
