International Conference on Advanced Functional Materials

(ICAFM 2017)
18-20​ December, 2017.

About University
Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies is established in 2008 and then it’s adopted by Government of Telangana to cater the needs of rural meritorious students who have passed out 10th Class for Six years integrated B.Tech program with an intake of 1000 students per year. RGUKT is residential campus spread in 270 acres in the abode of Gyana Saraswathi Temple who is worshiped for knowledge and wisdom. After a rigorous process of selection for the admission into Integrated B.Tech program, students undergo training in Pre University Courses (PUC) equivalent of state Intermediate syllabus. Based on CGPA score in PUC, students can choose branch of their interest from various branches of engineering (CSE, ECE,CIVIL, MECHANICAL, MME, Chem and EEE). The university is unique in sending students in their 3rd and 4th year of B.Tech to industries to bride the gap of academics and industry. A special training is being given during six years program to hone skills (soft and technical) as a part of campus placement drive. Students are trained well for all around developments and to meet the challenges. ​

About Departments
Departments of Chemistry and Physics are established with inception of Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies (RGUKT), Basar. Each department consists of nearly 20 faculty members recruited from India’s premier institutes teach Chemistry and Physics to nearly 2500 students per year from Pre University to University level courses. Departments are actively involved in interfacing with engineering departments of mechanical, materials and electronics. Our department faculties have expertise in the areas of Organic Synthesis, Bio diesel, Catalysis, Crystalline Materials, Ion-Solid Interactions, Nuclear spectroscopy, Nanomaterial, Optical and Magnetic measurements. Departments have access to in house facilities like XRD and SEM.

About Conference
1st International Conference on Advanced Functional Materials will be held in RGUKT, Basar during, Dec 18-20, 2017.

It is first of its kind where internationally acclaimed scientists from Physics and Chemistry come together to discuss and to showcase their research findings to highly motivated researchers from India and abroad. The lectures cover from basics to applications in Nano-Science and Nano-Technology, Synthetic Chemistry, Green Chemistry and Computational Materials Science. Mostly, emphasis will be given on topics that are in common to both Physics and Chemistry.
