M.Tech in E-waste Resource Engineering & Management (EREM) is being offered, from the academic year 2020, jointly by IIT Hyderabad and C-MET. This M.Tech program will catalyse the efforts towards E-waste management in the country and worldwide and will provide necessary support for several government initiatives in this direction such as Skill India, Swachh Bharat, Waste-to-Wealth initiatives. This programme is supported by the Ministry of Electronics and Information of Technology, Govt.of India.
This M.Tech. program in E-waste Resource Engineering & Management is not only unique but a timely initiative of IIT- Hyderabad jointly with C-MET Hyderabad. The students will get practical learning from C-MET which will be equally complemented by theoretical knowledge by IITH’s Academician. This M.Tech. program will catalyse the efforts towards E-waste management in the country and worldwide and will provide necessary support for several Government initiatives in this direction such as Skill India, Swachh Bharat, Waste-to-Wealth initiatives.
To empower prospective students to stay abreast of the latest innovations and practices in E-waste Management, IITH and C-MET, Hyderabad jointly started two years M.Tech programme on E-waste Resource Engineering and Management, first of its kind in the country. Our creative education strategies and innovative research approaches have spawned a conducive ecosystem for nurturing intellectual alertness among students and forging constructive collaborations with prospective e-waste recycling in.
With rapid change in technology and more digitalization in the world, there is an explosive growth in electronics industry and subsequently that has led to enormous growth in electronic waste (e-waste). E-waste contains many hazardous and toxic substances which have serious health and environmental effects, if not managed properly. Therefore, it becomes essential to learn about various technological interventions to manage, reduce and recycle e-waste for its safe disposal. M.Tech in E-waste Resource Engineering & Management (EREM) is being offered, from academic year 2020, jointly by IIT Hyderabad and C-MET. This M.Tech. program will catalyse the efforts towards E-waste management in the country and worldwide and will provide a necessary support for several of Government initiatives in this direction such as Skill India, Swachh Bharat, Waste-to-Wealth initiatives.
Total credit requirement for the award of M.Tech. in EREM is 50

C-MET, Hyderabad has established a state-of-the-art chemical testing facility for the analysis of electronic and related samples to help the industries and developed a mechanism to identify and quantify the substances banned under the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. This is the only Government-owned RoHS testing facility in India.
RoHS testing of samples is being carried out using Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer (EDXRF), Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS) with hydride generator, Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICPMS), Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer(ICP-OES),Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (GCMS), Ion-Chromatograph (IC), UV-Visible Spectrophotometer (UV-Visible), etc.
C-MET RoHS test facility is accredited as per ISO 17025:2005 standard by National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories (NABL), Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, in the field of chemical analysis of electronic materials. (polymers, metals, etc.
What can be better than getting to know recent technological advances, industry practices, opportunities from the industry Experts themselves. Industry lectures are a first of its type initiative by IIT Hyderabad, a first step towards the vision of our Director sir to have more collaboration between the industry and academia. Industry veterans come forth and address the IIT Hyderabad community on the latest research, activities in industry, areas where more research is needed in industry point of view, students also interact with them asking their doubts and further understanding industry culture.
