Ceramics are inorganic and non-metallic materials which are used for manufacturing a variety of objects, both for domestic as well as industrial use. From purification of raw materials to production of the concerned chemical compound and their formation into components, everything gets covered in the course. You learn the structure, composition and properties of such ceramic materials. Ceramic technologists plan and develop processing systems concerned with the production of the ceramics. They design and construct the plants and machineries needed for the production process. Among other things, the course curriculum teaches you the various processing steps in the manufacture of ceramics, which are milling, batching, mixing, forming, drying, sintering and final assembly. Some examples of ceramics are glass, porcelain, electrical insulators, refractors, enamels, cement, composite materials, etc.
Eligibility and course duration
Pass in 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry and Math. Most colleges admit students through entrance tests. The duration of this undergraduate engineering course is 4 years.
More about ceramic technology
Ceramic materials are used in a variety of fields. They have applications in electrical, materials engineering, chemical and mechanical engineering. Because of their properties of heat and electrical resistivity, they are suitable for a variety of applications where ordinary metals and polymers are unsuitable. They are used in a variety of industries like electrical transmission & distribution, aerospace, mining, oil refineries, utensil industry, chemical industry and electronics. With advancement in applications of ceramics, ceramic engineering and technology has become an important field of science and a multi-billion dollar industry. With continuous research in the field more and more applications are coming up and replacing the traditional materials.
Since a variety of applications are possible with ceramics, a ceramic technologist can find work in any of the various ceramic ware manufacturing industries in the country. They can get in units manufacturing ceramic products related to aerospace, electronics, biomedical, electrical, automotive, optical and for domestic use. Ceramic experts are also in demand in government research organizations like ISRO, DRDO, DMRL and BARC. Ceramics play an important role in providing excellent heat shielding properties to rockets, engines, missiles and reactors. Once they are trained and experienced enough in the field, many ceramic specialists get into entrepreneurship. Opportunities exist for M.E./M.Tech and for research work in the field to develop new applications of this wonder material. One may also get into ceramic designing, making designer wares using sand and clay.
