VISAKHAPATNAM: “GITAM University is giving high priority to undertaking research in nano technology and has established a specially designed centre for research activities by prompting HPCL, DRDO and Department of Science and Technology-Government of India to sanction various nano technology related projects to the varsity,” GITAM vice-chancellor G Subrahmanyam said.

Inaugurating a national workshop on ‘Engineering Applications of Nano Technology’, organised by the mechanical engineering department of the university under World Bank supported TEQIP project, here Wednesday, the vice-chancellor said that the varsity invited several foreign researchers to take up joint programmes and academic sessions.

Nano fluids expert from IIT-Madras, SK Das explained that nano fluids were potential coolants in high CHF systems like nuclear reactors and super-critical boilers and were fast emerging as the new generation of cooling solution.

Private universities like GITAM should give high priority to research for enhancing the teaching capabilities and also practical knowledge of the faculty, he added.
