Course on Vacuum Technology & Process Applications @ IIT Kharagpur [Oct 14-23]: Apply by Oct 10: Expired


Vacuum Technology has diverse applications in various areas of science and Engineering. These include major fields like Electronics, Metallurgy/ Chemical Processing, Food Processing, Space Simulation, Nuclear Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Cryogenic engineering. This has resulted in the rapid development of many sophisticated vacuum instruments, pushing the range of vacuum to 10-12 Torr.
To keep pace with this advancement in vacuum technology, it is absolutely necessary for the
engineers/scientists/teachers of our country to get first-hand exposure to the modern vacuum equipment and their applications. The training method consists of lecture
sessions, laboratory experiments and discussions on process vacuum systems for various
