The Kalasalingam Anandam Ammal Charities established Kalasalingam University (formerly Arulmigu Kalasalingam College of Engineering) in the year 1984. “Kalvivallal” Thiru T. Kalasalingam, veteran freedom fighter, is the founder Chairman of the Kalasalingam University. The founding philosophy of the University is to “Empower Youth”, for development through technology.

The Centre for Composites Materials was established in the year 2009 as an interdisciplinary centre for carrying out teaching, research, design and development and consultancy in the field of composite materials and their applications. The center has dedicated laboratories for composite materials processing, materials testing, composite machining and deposition. The center is taking effort to produce eco-friendly high performance materials. This research center is partially funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST-New Delhi). Recently this centre is recognized as Indo-Brail Centre for Composite Materials by DST/India and CNPq/Brazil by collaborating with Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Established on April 21, 1962, the University of Brasilia (UnB) is the utopia of Brazilian anthropologist and educator Darcy Ribeiro. Since its inception, the University has been committed to producing state of the art knowledge and promoting citizenship for the transformation of Brazil, giving it a national reputation for excellence in research, teaching, and extension.

Currently, UnB has approximately 2,308 teachers, 2,692 dedicated staff, 30,727 undergraduates and 8,913 graduate students. The University houses 26 faculties and schools and has 18 centers dedicated to specialized research on four campuses: the Darcy Ribeiro Campus (main campus) and three other sites (Ceilândia, Gama and Planaltina).

The Laboratory of Instrumental Analysis (LAI) started its activities with the Materials Department of the University of Brasilia (UnB) trying to meet a deficiency in the School of Engineering in teaching, research and extension in the field of polymeric materials. Training for teachers and doctors occurs with the Graduate Program in Mining, Metallurgical and Materials (PPGEM). We are a group of scientific and technological research, working in several research lines and maintaining important partnerships with universities in Brazil and abroad and with the industrial sector.
