B.Tech. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering

Why take this course?

B.Tech. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering - This course provides an in-depth knowledge of metallurgy and materials science. Scientific principles of fabrication, phase transformations, mechanical treatment, heat treatment, structure-property correlations and service behavior of various types of materials necessary to formulate, solve and analyze critical engineering problems are studied. Any student who has a keen interest in the study of ores and metals and the metallurgical process involved in their extraction should opt for this course as this course focuses deeply on these aspects of production. This course provides a lot many career opportunities in the industrial sectors where metals and metallic products are manufactured.

What will I experience?

  • This unique stream in engineering helps students gain technical knowledge in diverse aspects of development and manufacture of metals & alloys and processing these to useful components & structure for a multitude of products such as aircraft, ships, automobiles, railways, nuclear plants, power plants and the like. Students will have experience of latest IT tools & techniques, computer simulations, process modeling, process control & analysis. Above all students will have the most passionate & valuable experience in learning about the magic of metals & materials, the most important and enabling engineering, science & technology common to all engineering disciplines & products.

What opportunities might it lead to?

Metallurgical and Materials Engineering engineering graduates will have employment opportunities not only in metallurgical industries but also in other industries such as automobiles, aircraft, other vehicles, machine building, nuclear plants, railways, & other manufacturing industries. They will also have potential for employment in IT industries for development & application of software solutions as the course has considerable inputs in IT tools & techniques, computer integrated manufacturing & process controls and analysis. With the Prime Minister stress on “Make in India” the manufacturing industries are poised for substantial growth and this indicates considerable employment opportunities. There is already an acute shortage of metallurgical engineers & requirement is growing.

A few typical (not comprehensive) employers are indicated below:

  • Iron & Steel industries such as Tata Steels, Jindal Steels etc.
  • Nonferrous industries such as NALCO, HINDALCO, Hindustan Zinc, Hindustan Coppers.
  • Foundry industries
  • Forging industries
  • Welding industries
  • Powder metallurgical industries
  • Other manufacturing industries such as aircraft industries (HAL), space vehicles industries, automobiles industries (Maruthi, Volvo), machine tool industries, railways etc.
  • R&D labs such as ISRO, DRDO, NAL etc.
