The Centre for Nano- Science and Technology (CNST) was established to pursue interdisciplinary research and education facilitation and probing inherent synergy between Physical, Biological, Chemical and Engineering Sciences with a focus on nanoscale systems. Socio-economic and environmental aspects of different process and products so developed shall be essential component of all research activities. The Center was established in 2021 due to the enormous potential of research in the field of manufacturing and production, environmental sciences, drug delivery and discovery, nano-electronics and quantum computing. Broad research areas at CNST include nano-synthesis, nanomaterials and devices, nano-electronics, nanoscale phenomenon, nanofabrication, Nano polymeric materials, nano-biotechnology and biomaterials, health applications, solar cells and computational nano-engineering. The faculty members from different departments at CPUH are associated. The center offers various academic and research activities of different levels, and has close interactions with the industry. CNST housed on the CPUH campus, is surrounded by lush greenery dotted with beautiful flowering trees. The ambience is ideal for the research community to carry out the activities in a serene atmosphere.
