B.Tech. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering

Why take this course?

This is a unique graduate program designed in an active consultation with metallurgical & other engineering industries, R & D organizations, academic institutions and experts from professional associations such as Indian Institute of Metals, Institute of Engineers, American Society of Metals and Materials. With an introduction to the role of metals and alloys in the development of human civilization and their applications in many fields such as automobiles, machine tools, railways, ships and the like, the students are lead to the magic world of materials. The program covers the Science, Technology, Manufacture and Applications of metals and alloys. Course is designed in CBCS scheme which provides students to choose electives to specialize in physical, extractive, mechanical, metallurgy as well as material science, polymers, composite materials, nano materials, nuclear metallurgy, new & emerging manufacturing technologies.

What will I experience?

  • The students will be familiarized to industry practices, furnaces, fuels, foundry equipments, forging presses, rolling mills, welding machines and the like.
  • Gain in depth knowledge and understanding in phase diagrams, solidification, macro, micro structure, physical & mechanical properties, mechanical testing, phase transformation & structure properties correlation provides strong scientific foundation to develop and process the materials with desired properties.
  • The students will be familiarized to industry practices. Classroom lectures are complemented with extensive workshop & lab work in addition to visit to industries, R&D organization and project work.

What opportunities might it lead to?

Metallurgical & Materials engineering graduates will have employment opportunities not only in metallurgical industries but also in other industries such as

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

  • Automobile, Railways, Nuclear Power Plants, machine building industries and other manufacturing industries.
  • 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.
