Has been teaching various courses in materials science and engineering since April 1972, when he first took up a faculty position. He designed/ developed many of these courses. Having specialized in the areas of mechanical behavior of materials, plasticity, superplasticity and since 1994 on mechanical response of nanostructured materials, the focus has been on these subjects. Teaching has been carried out at the following Universities: Banaras Hindu University, India (April 1972 – December 1979), Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India (January 1980 – September 1997), Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India (October 1997 – September 2001), Anna University Chennai (2006- 2008), University of Hyderabad (2010-2015), Technical University, Aachen, Germany (1985-86), Technical University, Darmstadt, Germany (1994-95) and Institute of Materials Physics, University of Muenster, Germany (Jan.-Dec. 2009). The titles of the courses taught are:
In addition, he has delivered seminars at different academic and R&D institutions on all his areas of research interest encompassing Basic Researches on superplasticity, superplastic forming, fatigue (both high and low cycle fatigue), room- and high- temperature plasticity, sheet metal formability, structure-property correlations in conventional and nanostructured materials and thermo-mechanical treatments.
Both the expert level books written so far are the first of their kind.
