These days FG students and young reasearchers have great opportunity to attend online lecture series that are delivered by Prof. Basu as part of a University of Lille teaching programme. Prof. Bikramjit Basu is currently a Professor at the Materials Research Center and holds Associate Faculty position at Center for Biosystems Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He is appointed as Visiting Professor at University of Manchester, UK (2018-2023) and at the European Centre for Functional and Surface Functionalized Glass, Dubček University of Trenčín, Slovakia (2020-2021).

Prof. Basu’s contributions in Engineering Science have been globally recognized with several awards. He received India’s most coveted science and technology award, Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize in 2013 for his significant contributions to the field of Biomaterials Science. He is an elected fellow of International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering, American Ceramic Society.

 The lecture series is entitled “Selection and Designing with Engineering Materials: Principles and Case Study”, and is delivered via Zoom online.

DATE: 9, 16 and 23 September 2020

TIME:  8-12 a.m.

PLACE: FG conference room # 403

Course Contents:

  1. Overview of the design process: concepts and stages of engineering design and design alternatives using materials
  2. “specific stiffness-limited” and “specific strength-limited” designs for maximum performance for structural applications
  3. Basic elements of materials engineering: Overview of elements of chemical bonding, crystal structure, defect structure of different material classes; Processing-structure-property-performance correlation; Overview of conventional and advanced materials
  4. Brief introduction to the manufacturing processes for metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites
  5. Case study- Biomaterials and Implants; Why do we need Biomaterials/ implants in clinical treatment?, Concept of biocompatibility, Important metals for Orthopaedic/Dental applications (Ti-based alloys, stainless steels, Co-Cr-Mo); Coatings on implant materials
  6. A Way Forward: Challenges and Recommendations
