Nano Manufacturing Technology Centre (NMTC)
CMTI is establishing Nano Manufacturing Technology Centre (NMTC) under the XI Plan as a part of Nano Technology initiative at its existing location in Bangalore.
"Propagating and facilitating absorption of nano technology in the manufacturing domain in Indian Industry and enabling Indian manufacturing sector to be globally competitive in Nano Manufacturing"

  • Create Nano Fabrication and Nano Metrology facilities
  • Develop Nano products and Nano Control systems
  • Enable the interested Indian manufacturing sector to undertake Nano integrated manufacturing
  • Provide a platform for industry and academia to undertake Collaborative R&D in Nano integrated manufacturing
  • Provide services to industries in Nano Manufacturing Technology Areas
  • Knowledge sharing through training programmes in Nano Manufacturing Technology


Academy of Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AEAMT)
AEAMT is a new initiative at CMTI with the objective of generating qualified human resource in advanced technologies of manufacturing domain.
The academy would offer specially designed core technology programmes with a heavy focus on experiential learning through hands-on experiments, participation in live industry oriented R&D projects and shop floor exposure to make the participants "Job Ready". The existing advanced manufacturing and related laboratories would form a part of the infrastructure of the Academy
"Foster research, generation of know-how and application of knowledge and technology in the Manufacturing Sector through supply of Qualified and Trained Human Resource with an international outlook"

  • “Technology Generation and Practical Deployment for enabling industries to face global competition” as opposed to “Technology Acquisition and Adoption”
