B.Tech. in Metallurgy - 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.
Metallurgical 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:
Student must have passed 10+2 or equivalent examination with Physics, Mathematics, and English as compulsory subjects along with Chemistry or Biotechnology or Biology or any technical vocational subjects as optional with a minimum of 60% marks (55% in case of SC/ST) taken together in Physics, Mathematics and any one of the optional subjects.
