Chemical Ceramic Technology
Ceramic technology is the technology of creating objects from inorganic and non-metal objects. This is a niche branch of chemical engineering which deals with the development and manufacturing of ceramic and the process of combining it with other chemicals in order to create ceramic and allied products. This process is carried out through the action of external energies like heat or chemical solutions. Ceramic engineers work on the research of the materials, chemical processes, properties, manufacturing, design and applications of ceramic materials. The ceramic materials may have applications in other branches of engineering such as mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering and materials engineering. Ceramic materials, owing to their heat and electricity resistant property, have use in several industries such as mining, aerospace, medicine, refinery, food and chemical, packaging science, electronics, industrial and transmission electricity etc.
