WHAT IS CERAMIC ENGINEERING ?

Ceramic engineering program deals primarily with manufacturing and design of ceramics. This includes designing of nanostructured ceramics. The program also prepares students about the manufacturing aspect of ceramic design and its properties. In properties, one learns about thermal properties as well as about elasticity, hardness, fracture toughness and creep as well as strength. While dealing with manufacturing , the students learn about casting, sintering, extrusion and injection. As far as designing is concerned, students will also get to know about various principles of design with brittle materials, analysis of fracture, Weibull statistics, and hardening of ceramics.

SCOPE OF CERAMIC ENGINEERING

Today ceramic is just not confined to the making of potteries. The scope has widened and ceramic engineering is being increasingly used in the aerospace industry to make of space shuttle tiles, aircraft engines, manufacturing of airframes. The other areas where ceramics have to be used are in in biomedical implants, nuclear fuel uranium oxide pellets, space shuttle program, ballistic protection, space shuttle program, gas burner nozzles. The other areas where ceramic engineering has come to acquire importance is chemical industries, industrial and transmission electricity, packaging science, medicine and guided light wave transmission. There are job opportunities in the cultural department or tourism sector as well.
