About Us

“Anna University is one of the premier top-notched technical universities of the country founded in the year 1978. The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest departments of the university offering a variegated collection of courses under which the course B.E Materials Science and Engineering was conceived in the year 2006, with the aim of producing quality Materials and Metallurgical Engineers to the society.

The students of B.E Materials Science and Engineering have been radically expanding in all spheres as a consequence of which the Society of Materials Science Engineers – SMSE was started in the year 2010. It was then collaborated with the Madras Metallurgical Society – MMS to form the students’ chapter with the view of increasing University – Industry  collaboration. This has resulted in knowledge exchange between students in the form of the Intra-College technical Symposium – Krysta, Inter-College technical Symposium – Quanta and a number of workshops conducted on the most happening areas of Materials Science like Bio Materials, Nanotechnology, Manufacturing Technology, and Automotive Materials.
