B.Tech. Ceramic Engineering and M.Tech. Ceramic Engineering
Ceramic engineering deals with the creation of objects from inorganic and non-metallic materials by using heat, or lowering temperatures through precipitation reactions from high purity chemical solutions. Ceramic materials, being heat resistant finds usefulness in mining, aerospace, refinery, medicine and a wide range of industries. The curriculum at most institutes includes courses like Materials Thermodynamics, Raw Materials Analysis, Ceramic Processing, Drawing of Refractory Lining and Joints, Ceramic Fabrication, Ceramic Equipment Design, Sensor Technology, Electrical and Magnetic Ceramics, Pollution & Waste Management in Ceramic Industry and lots more.
Being a cutting-edge, low-cost material the use of ceramic material is on a rise. Starting from producing of ceramic teeth, bones, joints to implementation of the same in fibre optic cables used by doctors to see inside the human body or manufacturing ceramic superconductors, lasers and so on, ceramic engineering is needed.
